Today we take a look into the life and story of one of the more complex characters of the Robotech universe, Breetai the Zentraedi warlord. Initially a villain set on destroying the puny earthlings, he grew over time to become their unexpected and greatest ally. We dive into bits of his story across the shows, games, comics, and more.
What began as our “February Book Club” is now wrapped up in this episode (totally released on time thanks to the magical science of imaginative revisionist history!). If you haven’t read this book yet, but you plan to, don’t listen to this episode yet! If you have, or you are not planning to, give us a listen and then post your own comments in our Discord. And thanks for joining the fun!
In our newest Character Spotlight, we’re turning the shine to Captain Henry J. Gloval, commander of the great SDF-1 from the epic animated series Robotech. We also talk about starting our brand new (monthly?) book club! We’re kicking things off with Robotech: Genesis by Jack McKinney, which we’ve mentioned many times before on this podcast. Link is in the notes, so grab a copy and read along with us if you want to join in!
We’re finally back to doing another Robotech episode, and this time we’re taking a deeper look at the awesome Cyclone. These soldiers with their transforming suits of motorcycle armor are just about the coolest damn things ever made, and you get to play one! We also talk about some of the extended properties around the Cyclone, including the lamentably awful Xbox games. Give us a list, then let us know your favorite versions of the Cyclone!
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!
Much like magnets are to a pair of rapping clowns, missiles in Palladium have mystified and frustrated players for 30-odd years now. We’re finally here to talk about them, and how they are meant to be played at the table. If you have your own missile house rules, write us and share them!
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!
Matthew’s here to lead us through a deep look into his favorite character from the Robotech series, Roy Fokker. Roy is everyone’s favorite pineapple-salad-loving Veritech-flying Big Brother, and it’s a shame we never got to see him fully statted up. Write us and let us know what your favorite Roy moment was from the series!
Following up on last episode’s theme, we’re doing another brief game introduction, this time on Palladium’s late Robotech RPG. This one is Matthew’s all time favorite, and as such we have a lot of glowing things to say about it. Give us a listen, and let us know what your own favorite Robotech RPG memories are!
