Transformers"-SciFi nach einer erfolgreichen Zeichentrickserie
Veröffentlichung im Jahr: 1986
Fremdsprachige Ausgabe: Palladium Books
Ideeller Vorläufer von Battletech. Was man bevorzugt ist Geschmackssache. Passend gab es von Revell die Bausätze. FASA (Hersteller von Battletech) übernahm damals einige Mechs¸ die dann genauso aussahen wie die von Robotech. Das war ziemlich unüberlegt¸ denn spätestens als in Tokio ein Battletech Center eröffnet wurde ...
The Macross Universe is probably the widest ranging Universe to roleplay in¸ with the exception of the Star Wars Universe which features a heavily populated Galaxy. However though¸ no roleplay has ever been done for the Official Macross timeline. Although¸ Robotech and Macross II¸ which can be termed as Macross spin off's both have roleplays created by Palladium Books. Why no RPG for Macross/Macross Plus/Macross 7 then I hear you ask. This is something which I asked Palladium¸ and received a reply from Mary-Ann Siembeda. According to Mary-Ann it would cost Palladium far too much money to buy the rights from Big West to create a Macross/Macross Plus/Macross 7 roleplay¸ due to the phenominal success of the Official Macross timeline. Although recently it has been revealed that Palladium Books have chosen not to renew the licences on the Robotech or Macross II lines¸ however their official response is that this may change in the future but who knows.
It has therefore effectively been left up to us fans of Macross to create our own Macross Roleplay. Of course the first thing to do was to create or adopt an RPG engine¸ and of Palladium's was the obvious choice¸ as with a little adaptation the Macross II RPG Books can be used as a base for a Macross RPG.
To play a Macross timeline Campaign you will need three books. The Macross II RPG Book for the RPG engine¸ skills¸ etc. The second book you will need is also printed by Palladium¸ and is called The Zentraedi. This books details the Zentraedi ships and more intricate details on their mecha and basic OCC's. The third and final book is the Robotech RPG Book 1¸ this is essential if you intend to play Destroid Pilots. Although Destroids are no longer used in Macross Plus and Macross 7¸ having been phased out shortly after Space War I¸ there were plenty on the earliest Megaroad Colony Ships¸ and they are certainly around if your going to play an early Macross game.
