I don't remember seeing one in A Call to Arms, but as many report it, I fond that reliable. Where I'm sure there is on e is in the Crusade series. When the senator comes aboard the Excalibur, he is brought to them aboard a Warlock, and we get a good look at it before it jumps out.

The Narn don't feel to me like they use a jury system,.. I expect a court run by a member of the Ka'Rhi. He will listen to the evidence and be offended by this human's actions and his interference in Narn business and custom. The impact of the character statements will be small. The employer's state...

If we are to talk about what a Narn jury is going to think, disregarding the evidence at the trial and so forth, the narn jury is going to say, "How dare this human interfere with the honorable execution of the Chon'Kar. Fry the bastard." At this point, I don't think we even know for sure if the Nar...

If you really wanted to try and make this a justifiable killing, you should have let him go, maybe shoved him to the back of the bathroom. Stepped back from him, keeping him at gunpoint. Tossed the sword to him, and told him that he could leave the sword and walk away from his Chon'Kar, or take up t...

Just because you are a licensed security officer with permission to use a weapon in the performance of your duties does not give you the right to misuse that force. Cops on the street can NOT just decide the guy is guilty and shoot him. There are laws against that sort of thing, even assuming that y...

The depositions would seem to indicate that the incident in question would be deemed appropriate had the defendant been a Narn (at least by another Narn). I believe that the letter from G-Kar, a high ranking member of the Ka'Rhi, would be enough to convince the court to treat the accused per the sta...

I will post my defence today, and when I do, I will post it here also, so that everyone here can keep up with the tormented struggle of Max Wolf. You've got a defense to present against this?

I would have to go and rewatch the series to find it, but their is a throw away comment about robotics in one episode. My gut feeling is that Garibaldi made the comment and indicated that something bad had happened in the world of robitics and they had been banned. If I had to guess, I would suggest...

I agree that the character should bear the consequences of his actions, but that doesn't mean he has to be convicted in a court of law, and it doesn't mean the consequences have to be immediate. Moden did all sorts of terrible things, but he didn't get his come uppance for three years. Then he paid ...

Having all the facts is actually what invalidates this forum. The court which is going to try him for murder will not have all the facts. First we need to know a few things about the court in question. How does the Narn legal system work. Who does the burdeon of proof fall upon? Does the prosecution...

At least while clothed, Centauri and human female look almost eactly alike. The Centauri wears a wig, the human shaves her head. A close examination might pick out differences in the teeth, but the Centauri females are much more similar than the males. The biggest problem is going to be more social....

One item to add confusion to the Omega. They deliberately used tricks to make the bridge look bigger on the small set they were using. That is bound to make figuring out the layout just that much harder. I also vaguely recall that it was actually CNC, just redressed.

Even when I have had my laptop at games, I haven't found it to be of much use. Better to have everything printed out ahead of time. I have used theme music for games on occasion, but in those cases, I used the stereo.

The cross-class skills aren't about being realistic. If we were trying to be realistic, we'd junk the class/level system altogether and go with a points based system where you buy all your character's abilities, like hero system or gurps. Cross-Class skills are all about play balance, where a charac...

I think the difficulty in joining the rangers would have a lot to do with when and where you were. The rangers of the early seasons would be near impossible to join. They operated in secret, revealing themselves to no one, secretly recruiting contacts and members while trying to avoid the notice of ...

Even if I did choose to buy a PDF product, I'd just end up printing it out and binding it myself, and I am far more likely to be playing under conditions where I can't use my computer than where I can use my book.

These ships are powered by massive fusion reactors and probably some sort of fusion engine design. I'm sure that the engines and such are deliberately away from the crew areas to reduce radiation exposure. The engineering section will be where the ship's engineering staff monitor and control the vit...

Mekton uses a similar system, with large vehicles like battlemechs and starships using a different scale of weapon. Almost all equipment and vehicles were built with the same rules, and could bescaled up or down as appropriate. Take a Battlemech at 1/10 scale, and you had a suit of powered armor (an...
