Seems to me that this purpose is modeled on Sheridan, as Carrier was on Lyta.

In which case teep abilities wouldn't necessarily be important. A kick ass mental shield perhaps but nothing else. Perhaps some of the Empath abilities could be modified to suit?...

Another great question caused by the Psi corp book. Pg 22. About the test for checking P-Level. The newer version of the test requires a te;epath to perform it . The tester creats a series of mental blocks and images and asks the subject to probe these mental contructs. Sounds OK until you remember...

Re: Unrealistic scale...

You could probably even freeze it to reduce the slooshing effect. Though you'd probably want to maintain it as a liquid as that is denser than than ice at close to freezing (hence the entire ice cubes floating in water thing). It would depend on how complicated the tanks would have to be to counter...

Re: Unrealistic scale...

[ "counter balancing" it with a relatively dense medium (water) wouldn't be too hard (though there's the whole "slooshing" thing, so tanks would need to be highly compartmentalised to reduce that). This would probably be the ships water tanks (which would be located there, in some rotating section ...

Re: Unrealistic scale...

If your complaint is about turning while the center section is rotating, then this statement from George Johnsen, CoProducer, B5, shows that they did think about torque issues. (Btw, ignore the first sentence as he came back and corrected himself.) Kizarvexis I am more concerned with the whole 'eve...

It's been said before that sometimes the pregen NPCs are better or different from what you can build in the rules. Sometimes it's just because the writers wanted tham that way, usually for a reason. We had a similar discussion about the Bester stats a while back. LBH I agree, a similar discussion w...

Finally got a chance to look at the PrC. :shock: How do you tell a Vorlon you've changed your mind? On the other thread there was some comments about the stats for Montessa King in the Psi Corps. It was suggested that she didn't have enough abilities for her level. On actually seeing the PrC it is a...

It should be noted you referenced b5tech.com which has absolutely no canon basis for pretty much most of their stuff.

Looking at the ships and the revised size scale it would seem that you should be able to comfortably fit at least 2 Colossal III spacecraft (Sharlin, Nova etc) into a 1000ft hex.

B5 itself would be 26 hexes long and probably about 8 wide...
