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.
Join us for a deep dive into the workings of the Skills system in Palladium’s various role-playing games. We go over the differences between Percentage skills, Weapon skills, Physical skills, and Combat skills. What are your favorite skills, or skills house rules? Write us and let us know!
In this episode we talk about the Rifts “Chaos Earth” RPG and Megaverse setting. In between stories from our own current Chaos Earth-rooted campaign, we discuss the hot subject of “is Chaos Earth really a complete RPG?” Give us a listen and find out!
We continue our “Introduction to…” series with a look at Palladium’s long-running Rifter Magazine, including a flip-through review of Rifter issue #1. This magazine is full of all kinds of Palladium-focused gaming goodness. If you have yet to dive into this series, give us a listen to hear what you may be missing out on!
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.

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!
