Watermarked PDF

Join us as we enter the exciting world of Robotech! Strap into your Veritech fighter and battle giant Zentraedi warriors for the fate of mankind. Defend the earth from invasion in your Destroid. Help maintain the fragile peace after the war that left most of the Earth devastated. Inside this book you will find a complete Savage Worlds setting for the Macross era of Robotech. Play as your favorite characters, Rick Hunter, Max Sterling, Linn Minmai, Breetai, Exedore and more. You can even make your own character to fight in the first Robotech War. 

The background of this book can be turned on and off. 

Note from the publisher: There is now an update to the Robotech Macross book for Savage Worlds. I dont have a change log and I apologize for that, but we were more focused on fixing it rather than keeping track of the new material. Off the top of my head we can say that we updated some stat blocks, for characters and mecha, we added some material to the missions chapter. We fixed some problems with edges, added some quick reference guides and an index, we also added about 12 pages to the book. I think we got everything, but I am thinking we got at least all the major stuff, and probably most of the minor stuff.

Man this is such a great book I always did love Macross even though I didn't care much for the older version of the Macross rpg but I have a question will there be companion books based in the Southern Cross and the Invid timelines and maybe or maybe premade adventure books based in said timelines

Do you need the Savage Worlds rule book too or is this enough to begin play?

Hey guys, a glitch. Several missile or bomb compliment stands for ATM-65 Stiletto ... that is never listed in missile/bomb tables. <--- that's an error, I think... not a bad critic, only pointing something to fix, I think
Although we all know mechas and vehicles by heart... the edition lacks of several key illustrations for them (as for the proto-hovertank, for example)
And a suggestion.
VF-4 (more advanced than VF-1) has a 2d8 ap10 laser as main weapon (plus missiles). This give us an average 18-4 (tough-armor)= 14 id est, 3/16 odds for a normal zentradi to take damage (not counting damage aces or so)... (not to think about power armor or battlepods), and GU-11 (optional to the VF4) does 3d8 ap 6... it is... odd that a newer fighter have less permanent firepower than an old one (same size)

Looks like the VBT-1 CENTAUR has a vehicle handling of 11 in both forms.

Are you planning on creating or adapting any other rules system other than SW?
I love ROBOTECH...but I kinda can't stand SW.

if I'm not mistaken there were two rpgs being developed at the same time. one was for SW but the other company was doing something else.

We are only authorized to do a version for the Savage Worlds game engine. However, our partner, Strange Machine Games, is doing one in their own house system. You might have some luck with that. :D

can we hope to have Southern Cross and Invid invasion ?

Why SMG which are making its own Robotech RPG permit a SaWo adaptation ?

We are planning to future books covering the rest of the eras. We will announce with they are near ready to go. As for your other question, this is done in cooperation with SMG.

It is not a common thing for the new acquirer of a Licence to permit other editors to make their own game with it :) they must be real fans to do this. I don't know yet about the upcoming SMG game engine but I am more a Savage Worlds fan. This is the second licence that is been savaged from the horrible palladium systems and I am quite happy :)

The Palladium system was not horrible in my opinion. I rather enjoyed it for many many years.

it is your opinion, not mine.

I dealt with the palladium system on several books (Heroes Unilimited, Rifts, Ninjas & Superspies, Robotech, Macross II...) who supposed to be run on the same system. Well, even between these games there were differences (number of attack/round, base skills percentages, hand to hand combat, bonus for high characteristics) and that was before the advent of the internet. Then the errata of Palladium Books was the biggest I ever seen...

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
