Back after another unexpected break, we continue our ongoing OCC Spotlight series with a look at yet another “iconic” character from the Rifts RPG: The Borg! AKA the “Combat Borg” if you’re only familiar with the Ultimate Edition. This nigh unstoppable powerhouse of murderosity has been a go=to favorite of long time players for decades, and in this episode we’re here to tell you why. We spend time comparing the renditions of this class across the two editions of the game, and also dice deeper into some role-playing inspirations for players wanting to bring a Borg to the gaming table.
