Now I took over the Renegade RPGs, (actually they were Renegade VS Destructicon RPGs at first) in the middle of the first episode. This was unexpected as Ravage18 just gave over control to me one night (Yikes!) So I had no time to figure anything out expect to just keep going and taking form G1. We borrowed from Armada, Energon and Cybertron but there wasn't much there except for a gimmick or two.
So with me at the held of the Renegade rpgs, I figured the best continuity to use was the G1 cartoon, loosely. The reason why is because between the end of season two and the movie, you have almost 20 years of time where anything could of happened. Plus the Marvel and UK comics left no room for anything for me to squeeze in! So the G1 cartoon/movie is something of a loose foundation for the Renegades. (See, loose foundations can be a good thing!) PlusHoist likes to us the Underbase story from the comics so there is lots of space for that now!
So now in retrospect, I think its best to leave something out and make up new things. Right now I like pulling bits and pieces from different TF sources as it helps for new stories and to explains things. As of right now I'm working on the Destructicon history and borrowing from here and there.
So another thing is, in the first earliest Renegade RP's here the main opposition, oyur main mad guy was called "Armada" originally. I'm not sure if that was because of the cartton influence over time but it has since been revised to something cooler like "Arvardatron", not only that but Jazz also came up with a pre-"Armada"/renegades back history with the earliest days of our heros with the opposing force of Legion, Jhiaxus, and Accidicus and a whole HUGE pre-renegade history which is well worth a read!
It's well worth a read, the first three chapters here:
All created by Jazz.
