Coming late to the party - and ye gods and little fishes, has it really been that long since I last posted here? (Other than one or two about Spam....) I would be quite happy to see several of the old D20/OGL books converted - the Quintessentals, and at least two of the Classic Play Books (Book of t...

OT: My only experience with d20 is B5, so can someone enlighten me and tell me what OGL is? Open Gaming License OGL is basically the basis of the Core Rulebooks that WotC produce. It's open content so any one can use it and it is pretty much the same as d20 D&D. One question though, will the new B5...

Hey guys, I am actually grateful for this thread - I want to hear what you chaps do not like about the B5 system, as we have been mulling over a possible 2nd edition. And yes, space combat is my number one bugbear :) So, what else do you chaps want to see changed? Thank you! :D I really did not wan...

Things We Do Not Love About B5 RPG (please get involved!)

First off, I really do like the B5 RPG. I want to run it again sometime soon (after my OGL Steampunk game and the Iron Kingdoms game that comes after that). But I hate the ship combat system. Well and truly hate it - enough that I left it out of my first B5 game entirely. And will leave it out of th...

With a lot of modification, yes I do find it quite playable. Biggest changes: Dropped the weapons tables, and used the ones from Sorcery & Steam instead. Added the automatic weapons fire from Deadlands D20 (why there are no rules for autofire in OGL Steampunk escapes me). Added the option to spend a...

Here's something that's confused me: once you've taken a class and chosen your starting vocation, how do you get into a different one? It seems kind of silly to say that if you start as an Adventurer (combatant), you may never become an Aventurer (hunter) or Adventurer (pilot). It's why the d20 sys...

Ship combat is the one thing about B5 RPG that I cannot stand. I want a vectored system, the show uses a vectored system. The game does not.

So I avoid space combat, and tell people not to take any skills for it.

Average Age of OGL Steampunk Players?

Up until today I had been running two OGL Steampunk games a week, today the younger group (c. 14 year olds) officially broke up in favor of World of Warcraft. They seemed to like running around blowing things up, but not focusing on the plotline. They didn't touch the Amazing Machine rules at all. M...

Cool, I haven't been to the Farmington convention in years, just a wee bit too far for an ingrained pedestrian to walk. There were some really nice folks there.

In regards to the multiclass Artist/Thief.

As for Satan, the Christians say he was dismembered by archangel Michael when he declared he was equal to God. However the old Testament, Genesis, states that he was dismembered by God Himself and cursed to crawl on the ground forever for having tempted Eva to disobey. Refering to the serpent as Sa...

'Satan' is also a title, in fact an ordinary Hebrew noun meaning 'adversary', and the idea of a single Satan and its conflation with Lucifer is an error made in the early Christian era. The 'God vs the Devil' thing is far more a Persian idea than a Jewish one. Another scholarly error that became th...

Thanks for the information. I never read the bible completely and always stopped just after the genesis. Considering the words of Jesus Christ and what has been done by his Christian "followers" since then I wonder whether there is not a "slight" deviation of point of view. Something to bear in min...

Stoning and pressing were common as well. And in fact stoning is the Biblical punishment for witchcraft.... I thought that magic was a gift from God. The Church propagated the idea of the pact with the devil but in the beginning it's with God that people (Jews) made a covenant (written on the devil...
