Boom goes the Dynamite the KickStarter has ended

Thank You Shawn Merrow for the picture
Love you all

Thank You

To all, 
We are coming down to the final day of the Kickstarter. As of this posting we have 4,473 backers and the pledge is at $1,113,587.. I'm floored!! wait 4,474 and $1,113,827.. wow fast..
I would like to take a few moments of your time to say how utterly Thankful I am that each and every one of you are here. When this KS started I was worried that this would not see $500K pledge let alone a million+. YOU all have really stepped up and made this a worthwhile project. The small snowball of an idea has been turning into an avalanche. This could NOT have happened without Palladium Books and Kevin S. Also this KS would be nothing without the skill and hard work of the people at Ninja Division led by John C. Their Ninjas have been pushing, teasing, and designing the stuff that we have all been waiting for more than 25 years for..
I have a favor to ask..
When you can spare a moment I would like to ask you to give a Thank you to the people That took the time to listen to a simple fan of Robotech with an idea. Post a Thank you on the Ninja Division and Palladium Books Facebook pages for the Robotech RPG Tactics project. If you could do that for me I would be appreciative.. Please repost this as necessary....

Last week of the Kickstarter

To all,
This is a worthwhile Kickstarter.. for everyone.. role players, anime fans, tabletop gamers, board gamers, hostorical gamers, terrain makers and video gamers.. this is the ground floor of a big deal! The game is fast and fun and most of all the game is easy enough to teach to your 7 year old.. I wouldn't have been working on this for the past two years if it wasn't worth it.

There is so many quality individuals working on this and testing things and giving solid technical advice. There are people with over 30 years worth of experience in the Gaming and RPG worlds working on this project. Ninja Division, Harmony Gold and Palladium Books have been working together to bring all this to you. There is so much that has been researched and explored that the average gamer doesn't know about. These people are SERIOUS!! I'm amazed at how far this endeavor has grown and taken on a life of its own. But as I have stated before this project means nothing without the dedicated fans behind it. You guys have made this dream come true and everyone behind the scenes are trying to make this the best damn game for all you fans out there. After all, you have been waiting over 25 years for it.. The wait is over.. there won't be a better opportunity than now.."

Force Organizations

Here is the preliminary Force organizations you can use to build your armies..
There is much to be be released as of yet and still no word on the Special characters.. but there is alot here and alot to be guessed at.. But we are still hearing word that there is more after all this..

First Off the UEDF: There is still speculation on the shadowed out mecha in the Support Cards section. The Destroids looks to be fleshed out rather well..

For the Zentraedi: in the shodows are TROOPS!!  LOTS OF TROOPS..  and the elusive FPA (looks like)
ANd the Third Faction - the Malcontents will have plenty of troops to draw from..

 With goals being reached and new items for sale  like the new Battle Foam bags.. there is not much that a Robotech Fan could want... except the Masters and the Invid sagas.. then there is the Shadow chronicles...
 More updates to come...
