The Glitterbois #0096: The Glittery Guide to Game Prep

Today we respond to listener email! This episode’s topic comes from Douglas, who asks for some advice on making game prep easier. Matthew and NPC both have their own tidbits to share, and while it’s mostly focused on running Rifts games, it can be applied to a lot more beyond. If you have your own tips, please drop by our Discord and share them!

The Glitterbois #0095: The Long Joyous Path to Expertise

We are not experts on anything that we talk about. Just fans – really passionate ones with a lot of experience in the subject, but still just fans. But the more we read, play, and talk about these games, the greater our expertise grows. In this free-form episode we converse about our experiences so far, what we’ve learned, and what we hope to see.

The Glitterbois #0094: Rifts Inspiration from Marvel’s Avengers

Join us for a fun thought experiment, in which we take the characters from Marvel’s Avengers (primarily the MCU versions) and use them as root inspirations for a similarly-focused adventurer team in the Rifts role-playing game. We are very specifically _not_ just re-creating them in the system, but instead looking through the Rifts catalog for options to create characters using those heroes as thematic templates. Included is a deeper discussion on how the seeming lack of balance in the game can actually work in the story at your table just as well as it would an Avengers movie.

The Glitterbois #0093: Rifts Sourcebook 2: The Mechanoids Review

The Mechanoids are back! ARCHIE-3 dun goofed and now our favorite villains from the Megaverse are invading Rifts Earth! That’s right, we’re looking at what I think may be the first big cross-over event in the Megaverse publication history: Rifts Sourcebook 2. Is this one as awesome as it sounds? Give us a listen, and then join us on Discord to share your thoughts!

Bikers Dice and Bars #077: Space Games

NPC’s been crazy-addicted to space-based video games lately, so in this episode (or intervention?) that’s what’s on the agenda. We talk about the major genres of space games, and some of the more popular ones along with others you might never have heard of. We mostly focus on video games in this one, but there’s a wee bit about tabletop as well. What are your faves? Stop by our Discord and let us know!
