Zentraedi (Robotech Book Three), softback supplement for Robotech, by Kevin Siembieda
“The Zentraedi are one of those great villains of all time, the ultimate antagonist. They are a race of 60 foot giants, consumed with conquest and violence. Merciless warriors, they are relentless in combat and would rather die than acknowledge defeat. We can hate them because they are cold, cruel, and ruthless instruments of destruction. We can fear them because they are an enigma from another world possessing superior strength and numbers. We can loathe them for their cruelty, brutality and maniacal fervor to conquer . . . to destroy. We can sympathize for them because they are mere puppets, twisted and made ugly by an insane puppeteer. For they are victims of yet another race’s mad design; artificially created, cloned, grown and indoctrinated into a short, bleak life of constant war and death. Toss in the mystery of the SDF-l space fortress, proto-culture, and the insane Robotech Masters, and there you have it. A truly compelling antagonist.
This book is about these tragic villains. We take a closer look at their lives, tactics, weapons, mecha and space cruisers. They are presented as villainous, non-player characters, and developed for use as player characters (good or evil). All of it is provided for your gaming enjoyment.”
