Palladium Books Does a Kickstarter - Robotech® RPG Tactics™
I don't know if many of you recall, but on April 1st I posted about a fictitious Palladium Books Kickstarter. Three weeks later, I find an actual Palladium Books Kickstarter - go figure.
Robotech® RPG Tactics™- as an aside, is Kevin claiming a trademark on the word "Tactics"?
I was never a huge Robotech fan. I had a friend who got a vanity plate that said Veritech, so the shit was popular in my gaming group back in the day, I just never was into it.
The miniatures look cool, but I still don't see the appeal. Every Palladium Books RPG I have ever owned has had great setting material wrapping a broken system that even Kevin himself houserules into something that barely resembles the original. I don't have high hopes as to how the system will play, but the minis sure do look pretty.
It's doing amazingly well as a Kickstarter - the goal of $70k has been surpassed and currently stands at over $240k - and it just started on April 18th.
I guess Robotech still has a strong following.
Me, I won't be backing this one. I don't have the nostalgic love the the property and minis wargames do little for me these days.
