Is 'Asimov' actually the class name? From the announcements I can remember from the series I think it's just the name of a particular liner that travels to and from B5 on some regular route. Offhand, I think Tu'Pari leaves on it when fleeing from Thenta Makur retribution.

There's also the exploding dice option - on a roll of 20, let the player roll again, and add the scores. A second 20 gets another roll, and so on. For a roll of 1, give another roll and take 20 away from that value. If another 1 is rolled, give another roll and take 40 away, etc. This has the advant...

Station plans online release?

I'm wondering whether the guys at Mongoose would consider releasing the station plan on pp.108-109 of the main rulebook online. Much of the info is lost in the book's spine, and it would be handy to have a complete one, both for GM reference and for showing to players. Would anybody else be interest...

Before? I thought you said you wanted to run your campaign from July 2257. Station officially opened Jan 2257 so I make that 6 months after . In that case we appear to be in disagreement over the opening date of B5. I got the date from the core rulebook (p155): 2257: The Babylon 5 diplomatic statio...

I'm picky - I want things both ways :) On the one hand, having only a PDF of certain things would be a bit of a pain. As has been mentioned, a hard copy as a tabletop reference is very handy. On the other hand, things such as maps that you could print out would be very handy on disk, as it means you...

Six months before the station's official opening, then? Gosh. So what did the official opening actually signify? Just a cursory gesture since the station had been going for months? Maybe 'officially operational' means 'as finished as it's going to be' (since Downbelow was never fully developed), and...

Gosh. Well, that comes as a surprise. There seem to be lots of people on that station already, conducting business, and a lot of people in the casino who don't appear to have much official to do. Also, at the end Takashima broadcasts 'on all frequencies' that the closing off of the station is over a...

Date of The Gathering?

I'm putting together my first B5 campaign, but I want to start earlier than the beginning of the first season, and so the first scenario is planned to start off on 7th July 2257, three days after B5 opens it (cargo) doors, at which point the players are en route to the station. Clearly the attempt o...

Heh, it seems that people decided they'd rather not read through my lengthy post - I'd already mentioned I've Found Her. I think the key to FTL travel via hyperspace is not that the speed of light is higher in hyperspace - after all, think how long it'd take you to accelerate to that speed - but tha...

It appears that there was some change made to the travel time somewhere along the way. Encounter 3 begins with 'Seven days later, the Liberty's Fortune pops out of the jumpgate in the Levana system.' An eight day travel time is also mentioned elsewhere prior to this, rather than three, while is the ...
