How about a section specifically devoted to linking up players per region to find game and/or advertising local gaming groups. I put together a Facebook page for people to coordinate getting together to play games in Southern California (www.facebook.com/RobotechRPGTacticsSoCal) and would like to let anybody who joins who is local know so when ever we get our game from PB we can actually play.
A scratch building or miniature modding sorta forum would be nice. Be a good place for custom ships, custom miniatures, etc.
Another good one would be a forum for STL files of robotech stuff. It could be used by various modelers to upload their models, so we can all get them 3D printed on our home printers, or upload to shapeways and print them that way.
Ya, I was thinking sub forums for the 3 specific factions, The UEDF, Zentradi and the Malcontents. Each faction is going to have their own unique playstyle, why not give a place for those specific discussions?
I mean more like a running forum based chat Role Play for Robotech/Palladium/Rifts. One person creates a story line, offers the narrative and then participants chime in to the scenario similar to a standard pen and paper RP game.
Ultimately though, a forum for other Palladium RPGs wouldn't be a bad idea. I am a fan of alot of them
