After Hours: Rifts Bestiary Volume One

Palladium is still out there, publishing new books. I rounded up Birk, Tom, and Rob from the Orpheus Protocol to examine their latest offering, Rifts Bestiary Volume One. It’s mostly reprinted monsters from older books, but they’ve sprinkled in some new ones.

News: We are still doing weekly livestreams on the Discord! Sometime later this month we will be screening my movie, Motor Home from Hell. Stay tuned for details!

After Hours: Iron Sky RPG Combat Example and the Divided States of America

I recently found out that a RPG based on the movie Iron Sky is in production. The developer posted a 6400 word example of play on a Kickstarter update. I invited Caleb, Birk, and Rob from the Orpheus Protocol to analyze the rules given in the example. We also talk about the TV Tropes page about the Divided States of America, which increasingly feels relevant today.

Check out the Orpheus Protocol today if you haven’t already.

News: Our next RPPR Livestream video watching party is on May 17 at 2 pm CST on the RPPR Patreon Discord. See you there!

Song: Terminal Man by Flowers for Bodysnatchers. Listen to our review on Night Clerk Radio.

After Hours: Gifts for the Gift Throne

As the holiday shopping season is upon us, I have come up with an idea for a new game: a miniatures skirmish game about families fighting each other for the best presents at big box stores and online retailer warehouses. We also review:

  • Deep Freeze, an adventure from Dungeon #83
  • Time and Time Again
  • Maximum Metal – a Cyberpunk 2020 supplement
  • A brief survey of the Imperial Guard codex (3E)
