Inspired by the excitement around the success of the recent TMNT & Other Strangeness Kickstarter, we’re kicking off a series of dives into the original TMNT&OS books, starting with its first official supplement: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures! This is a pretty damn fantastic book, and we’re thrilled to tell you why.
We’re back from the holiday break to bring you an answer to yet another user-request: How do you level up your character in Palladium games? Join us for a bit of a free-form wandering through the things you need to note, and a few tips we have on keeping track of it all. Then stop on by our Discord and ask us any other questions you might have!
After a bit of a break to bask in the glow of the awesomeness that is the return of Palladium’s TMNT license, we’re back to look at the next book in the Rifts World Books series: Japan! Oh man we have a lot to say on this one, so grab a snack and listen along. Then afterward, drop by our Discord server to chat about your favorite parts of this book!
Hello friends! We finally got (most of) our schedules aligned to be able to get Kevin Siembieda and Sean Owen Roberson – aka Palladium Books – on the show! They’re here to tell us (and you) all about their awesome new upcoming Kickstarter project for the TMNT RPG redux / special editions. Such excite! There’s some good info here, so give us a listen and then join our Discord server to discuss your thoughts on the project.
Well this has been a fantastic week for us at the Breakfast Puppies studio, what with the big news that TMNT RPG IS COMING BACK, BABY! YEAH! In this free-form episode, we discuss our reactions to the announcement, and wax nostalgic on memories of awesomeness with the property. You should come on by our Discord community and join in the excitement!
It’s been a spell since we’ve ventured beyond the Rifts/Fantasy games, so it’s high time we got back to talking more about Ninjas & Superspies! Today we’re discussing ways to integrate the N&SS mechanics (namely its variety of martial arts styles) into the greater Megaverse, with a main focus on Rifts and other MDC settings. Give us a listen, then join our awesome Discord server and tell us about your favorite cross-Megaversal martial arts monstrosity!
This one is a listener-requested topic: how exactly do magic and psionics mix into combat rounds in Palladium’s RPGs? Listen in for a walk back through the history of its mechanics, and a comparison of the old ways vs the current ways. It’s a complicated topic, and we have a lot to review!
We kick off this newest session of recordings with a look at Rifter #10. We all know that 9 1/2 is a hard act to follow, so how does this one compare? Give us a listen, then join us on Discord to chat!
Today we’re talking about the Glory Days of Butts! Oh wait, no, we’re actually just talking about another – you know it – “iconic” core OCC from Rifts, the Mystic. The mystic is a simple but fun class that blends magic and psionics together into a kitchen sink kind of caster, which fits pretty solidly in a kitchen sink kind of setting like Rifts. What was your favorite Mystic character? Drop by our Discord and share!
Hey look at us, we are 138! Now that that is stuck in your head, in this episode we discuss the development of good character backstories in RPGs (and especially in Palladium).
