We venture back into the mystical lands of the Palladium Known World for a look at the second book in the Fantasy RPG product line: Old Ones. My friends, this one is truly epic in every conceivable way. Join us as we gush love for this book, and then hop onto our community Discord to tell us your memories of its adventures!
Following on the heels of our episode on Rifts Book 5: Triax, we now dive into its companion book, Rifts Sourcebook 3: Mindwerks. This excellent tome expands the content in the previous World Book, introducing some fantastic new villains and locations for your Germany-trotting adventurers to explore.
Our progress through the long series of Rifts World Books continues with Book 5: Triax and the NGR. This continues the ongoing trend of giving your players new villains and (potential) allies in their adventures across the warped and fractured world of Rifts Earth.
Today we take a look into the life and story of one of the more complex characters of the Robotech universe, Breetai the Zentraedi warlord. Initially a villain set on destroying the puny earthlings, he grew over time to become their unexpected and greatest ally. We dive into bits of his story across the shows, games, comics, and more.
We’re making characters for the TMNT and Other Strangeness RPG! Will we ever actually play them in anything extended or worthwhile? Who knows! If you want to hear some actual play with this crew], drop by our Discord server and let us know!
We made it to episode 100! Hell yeah. Joining us to celebrate are our good friends Basem and Cranny from the Turtle Power Pod, to talk about the late but great TMNT and Other Strangeness RPG from Palladium Books (written by the late, great Erick Wujcik). Thanks for all your support, friends, and here’s to another hundred and more to come!
In this session, Jacob and NPC jam out their ideas on and approaches to handling large-scale combat and warfare in Palladium games (and namely Rifts). Our thoughts on this are all over the spectrum, and we’d love to hear yours as well.
“In the year 1994, From out of space comes a runaway planet, hurtling between the Earth and the Moon, unleashing cosmic destruction! Human’s civilization is cast in ruin! Two thousand years later, Earth is reborn with A strange new world rises from the old: a world of savagery, super science and sorcery. But one man bursts his bonds to fight for justice! With his companions Ookla the Mok and Princess Ariel, he pits his strength, his courage, and his fabulous Sunsword against the forces of evil. He is Thundarr, the Barbarian!”
Welcome back friends! Today NPC is joined by retuirning guest host Just Jacob to talk more about Palladium’s metal-as-heck Fantasy RPG, focusing solely on what made the first edition rulebook so dang great.
