NotesEdit

  • Written by FPilot
  • All dates are Earth-reckoning. Some dates of extraterrestrial events are approximate.
  • This document is meant to reconcile the RPG material with both the novels and the source material. It is also meant to open the door for gaming based on tangential shows/comics (the Macross sequels, Orguss, Megazone 2-3, and Dougram). This document does not claim to be endorsed as Robotech canon..
