Welcome to the Robotech RPG section of the Warp Zone.

I was first introduced to Robotech by a friend in high school. At the time the show was airing after school on a local station so I managed to see the entire series fairly quickly, except for the third segment. For some reason our local station would only air the first three or four of the New Generation episodes. It wasn't until a few years later when the episodes were released on video that I finally got to see them. When we discovered the Robotech RPG from Palladium Books, my friends and I immediately began playing. At first it was a friend of mine who ran the game, a Sentinels campaign (a pretty good feat since the Sentinels rulebook hadn't come out yet), and later I started running a Macross-era campaign, which only lasted a short time.

During my first year of university I joined a gaming group and decided to dust off my Robotech Macross campaign and try running it again. This game was a hit and lasted a few years, eventually transforming into a Sentinels game when the characters left Earth with the REF fleet. Later I tried to start a Southern Cross campaign, but it didn't catch on. Over the years I tried to restart the Southern Cross game to no avail, until around the time of the Robotech cartoon's 20th anniversary when the last attempt finally got it off the ground. My little corner of the Robotech universe had not been completely dormant in the interim, though; I had managed to run a couple of one-shot games at RPG and anime conventions over the years, set during the Malcontent Uprisings.

As the Southern Cross game marched towards the Invid Invasion era I wound up starting a second game, set around the same time but taking place in deep space with the characters being part of the Robotech Expeditionary Force and resurrecting some of the story elements from my defunct university Sentinels game. This game ran in parallel with the original, now taking place in the Invid Invastion era, for a few years before wrapping up while the original soldiered on. Finally after more than a decade, and nearly three decades after that very first Macross campaign in university, the Southern Cross/Invid Invasion game came to a close; wrapping up all the storylines and elements I had been carefully seeding since that very first campaign.

This site has the details about all the campaigns set in my little Robotech universe, from the Macross and Sentinels campaigns I ran in university, to the one-shot Malcontent Uprising games I ran at conventions, and tales from the Southern Cross/Invid Invasion/Shadow Chronicles game and the New Generation game. Some of the RPG rules I used for running the later games are also posted here.
