With this episode, we conclude our run through the original Palladium Fantasy 1st Edition world books. This one sort of bridges the gap between 1st and 2nd edition in some ways. There’s a lot to talk about here, so buckle in and give us a listen!
Continuing our celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Palladium Fantasy RPG, we now come to Book 6, their first full length campaign. And it’s an epic one, indeed! Give us a listen as we review this one, then drop by our Discord and share your adventure stories with us afterward.
In recognition of this year being the 40th anniversary of the Palladium Fantasy RPG, we’re dedicating our next few episodes to taking a look at the rest of the original line-up of first edition fantasy world books. In this one we cover two of them at once, as books 4 and 5 were both slim enough and covered related content. Join us as we chat excitedly over how awesome the Northern Wilderness is, and then join us on Discord to share your own favorite gaming memories in this realm!
In response to another listener request, we spend this episode talking about our personal favorite OCCs in Rifts and a few other Palladium properties as well. This is probably a topic we will revisit multiple times down the line as we do this show, re-reading the hundreds of books we have still yet to even mention, let alone review. Thanks for the topic suggestion, friends!
Back to the Rifter series, we’re finally at the april fools issue, Rifter 9 1/2. This is a great read, and a book that belongs in every collection. As always, after giving us a listen, drop by our Discord to join the conversation!
In this free form chat, we welcome as a guest Dave Robison, the Buttery Man Voice. Dave is a fascinating human with a vast array of activities attributed to him, including: Corpse Coffee (and associated webcomic), Archivos Story Organizer, various podcasts, and more. We talk about: Coffee cocktails, starting your own coffee company, the early days of podcasting, storytelling, audio fiction, and how to get involved with freelance voice acting. Thanks for joining us, Dave!
We’re back from a life break to release more fun discussion on Palladium’s gmaes, yay! This time we’re looking at the first and only (for a long time) third-party licensed Rifts book, the Manhunter RPG, from Myrmidon Press. This sleeper and oft-forgotten title from the early 90s somehow managed to completely blow our minds. Give this a listen and then stop by our Discord to share your thoughts on it!
We’re here this time talking about a very simple cosmetic “house rule” change to the core Attacks per Melee mechanic. It’s a long chat, and meanders wildly. Give us a listen and then share your thoughts on the topic with us on Discord!
Today’s fairly rambling discussion episode is (mostly) about the idea of “Perception Rolls” in Palladium’s games. It’s a contentious subject, and after you give us a listen, we invite you to share your own thoughts on the matter on our Discord server.
We return to the Phase World setting with the third Rifts Dimension Book, aka the Phase World Sourcebook. This is a companion piece to the previous book in the series, expanding the universe with more setting and system info. How does it stack up? Drop by our Discord after listening to share your own thoughts!
