We haven’t had a good talk about Robotech in a while, so we’re back for another round of it. This time, Matthew explains the universe story, mainly focusing on the progress of and differences between each of the main “Eras” of the Robotech lore. If you’re also a huge fan of the franchise, drop in our Discord and let us know!
Since both of us recently acquired copies of the super-limited black-and-gold Rifts 30th Anniversary hardback edition, we’re here (nominally) to review the overall book and its new content. In actuality we spend most of the time waxing nostalgic on how awesome the original content really is. Turns out neither of us had looked through the original Butts Edition in a lot longer than we remembered! If you also got your hands on one of these, drop into Discord and let us know your number!
Now that vaccinations are plentiful and a lot of the mask and closure mandates are lifting, folks are heading out in droves to go back to their favorite bars – should they still exist, of course. Many of our favorite watering holes unfortunately did not survive the lockdown months, and we deeply lament their passing. Fortunately, our resident “best-dressed man you’ll ever hear” bartender Dr. Xander Gerrymander is back behind the taps and slinging drinks for all of us drunken plebes. In this episode, we talk with Xander about what the bar life is like now that everyone is heading “Back to the Bar” in Summer of 2021.
We’re back to talk about inspirational fiction for helping you get into the “Rifts mindset!” When running any new RPG campaigns, we find that it can be super helpful to immerse yourself in as much relevant and tangential fiction as possible. Give us a listen to hear some of our favorites, and then write in and tell us your own suggestions!
Just Jacob’s guest run with us concludes (for now) with a guided look into one of the “oddities” among the Palladium catalog: RECON, the RPG of the Vietnam War. This one is interesting in that it is _not_ part of the usual Megaversal system that connects most of their games. If you’re interested in learning more about it, give us a listen!
After a short break for some summer travels, we’re back at the mics with a new batch of fun! This time We’re drinking a mix of McMenamins whiskeys and ales while Xander gives us an informative dive into the history of Portland’s own famous chain of McMenamins resorts and brewpubs.
Our guest host run with Just Jacob continues! This time we’re delving into the secrets of Palladium’s modern investigative horror RPG, Beyond the Supernatural. If you enjoyed this game, write us and let us know your favorite game memories!
Special guest Just Jacob continues with us again as we dive into some of the Palladium properties that we’re less familiar with. This time we’re looking at Ninjas & Superspies, Palladium’s tribute to 80s and 90s spy and kung fu action movies. If you have a memorable or favorite N&SS character of your own, write us and tell us about them!
After a lot of listener requests, we’re again taking a look at other Palladium RPG properties. Since there is a handful of them that the two of us are sadly not as well-versed in, we’ve invited our friend and fellow Breakfast Puppy host “Just Jacob” to join and talk about them. First on the list is Heroes Unlimited, Palladium’s classic take on superhero comics-style role-playing.
Our journey through the core Rifts RPG OCCs (occupational character classes) continues! This time we’re talking about everyone’s favorite chemically-fueled super-soldier: the Juicer! These guys are a lot of fun, and we really hope you enjoy listening to us talk about how damn awesome it the class is.
