In this very special episode of BDaB, we get roaring drunk and celebrate Poppy’s upcoming 40th birthday with a deep look into all of the games, bikes, and drinks that were popular back in 1981. This includes opening a bottle of a 1981 D’Oliveira Madeira, purchased special for this occasion!

Welp, it is finally here: our much-requested look into Savage Rifts. It’s a topic that we will probably return to multiple times over the course of this podcast, as there is a lot to talk about here. This episode is our longest yet, our apologies if it goes over your lunch break. But we have a lot to say, and hope you’ll stick around – and then talk to us after with your own thoughts!
This time around we are taking a dive into the recent newsletter emails from Kevin himself. There are some big things in the works, including some awesome new anniversary hardcover releases, and we want to talk about how cool they look.

Continuing our “OCC Spotlight” series, we take a long, loving look into what makes the Robotech “Veritech” so cool, and why its pilots are the best of the best. If you grew up with Robotech and also have fond memories of this iconic transforming mecha jet fighter, write us and let us know!
We at The Glitterbois believe that the Palladium core game system is ridiculously easy to approach and get acquainted with. We’re here to give you the basics of the core game mechanics that underlie all of the worlds of the Megaverse. It really is as simple as this.
