Digging Through The Archives: The Angst Squadron Folder

angst squadron folderBack in high school, we used to spend our lunch breaks blasting through malicious alien mecha in defense of the remnants of humanity precariously huddled into a handful of settlements across the inner solar system.

This was the folder that contained all the source material, character sheets, maps, and errata that were necessary–outside of the main books–to sustain the game, enthusiastically “donated” by Mr. Wes Davis (of the “Bloody Bastard” squadron), a friend that I introduced to the wonderful world of anime and RPGs.

In addition to all the lunchtime RPG nonsense, we developed our own little version of the Robotech universe that brought together even more marginally-related properties into one big, Carl Macek-inspired soup. We even had our own website (hosted on Angelfire) that let us reach out to other fans in the pre-social Web! Since I now have my own dedicated corner of the web, I figured it would be fun to migrate the old sites over to the AirborneSurfer domain, just as a sort of art piece and a reflection of how far we’ve come in the past 20 years.

Dear writing staff of Robotech: Battlecry,

You’re a bunch of goddammed bastards and I hate you. Please find the pointiest object within reach and impale yourselves upon it, you [edited for content].

Sincerely yours, et cetera,
