Back with another look at the core character options of the Rifts RPG, this time our focus is on everyone’s favorite pseudo-vamp, the Psi-Stalker! If you wanna be a skinny bald badass who sucks the souls out of his enemies, this is the class for you. What are your favorite Psi-Stalker game memories? Join our Discord and let us know!
This episode is short and to the point: if you’re running Rifts, and especially if you’re new to it, then you should go bookmark page 361 right now. Listen to this episode to learn why. And if you have your own favorite bookmarks, join our Discord server and let us know!
In this more conversational episode, we muse over ways to reconcile the contrast between the expectations of technology in Rifts – which was written largely in the late 80s and early 90s – and our own understanding of the technology of our modern 21st century world. We discuss things like computers, communications, electronics, and more. What’s your preferred approach to this conundrum? Write us and let us know!
Our semi-historical dive into the long-running Rifter series continues! In issue #3 we see a huge flood of love for the Ninjas & Superspies RPG, in addition to some fun new worlds and classes for Rifts and other properties. This one’s s goodie, and you should check it out if you haven’t already!
We haven’t had a good talk about Robotech in a while, so we’re back for another round of it. This time, Matthew explains the universe story, mainly focusing on the progress of and differences between each of the main “Eras” of the Robotech lore. If you’re also a huge fan of the franchise, drop in our Discord and let us know!
Since both of us recently acquired copies of the super-limited black-and-gold Rifts 30th Anniversary hardback edition, we’re here (nominally) to review the overall book and its new content. In actuality we spend most of the time waxing nostalgic on how awesome the original content really is. Turns out neither of us had looked through the original Butts Edition in a lot longer than we remembered! If you also got your hands on one of these, drop into Discord and let us know your number!
We’re back to talk about inspirational fiction for helping you get into the “Rifts mindset!” When running any new RPG campaigns, we find that it can be super helpful to immerse yourself in as much relevant and tangential fiction as possible. Give us a listen to hear some of our favorites, and then write in and tell us your own suggestions!
Just Jacob’s guest run with us concludes (for now) with a guided look into one of the “oddities” among the Palladium catalog: RECON, the RPG of the Vietnam War. This one is interesting in that it is _not_ part of the usual Megaversal system that connects most of their games. If you’re interested in learning more about it, give us a listen!
Our guest host run with Just Jacob continues! This time we’re delving into the secrets of Palladium’s modern investigative horror RPG, Beyond the Supernatural. If you enjoyed this game, write us and let us know your favorite game memories!
Special guest Just Jacob continues with us again as we dive into some of the Palladium properties that we’re less familiar with. This time we’re looking at Ninjas & Superspies, Palladium’s tribute to 80s and 90s spy and kung fu action movies. If you have a memorable or favorite N&SS character of your own, write us and tell us about them!
