How often do you see a Mon Calamari Cruiser take out a Star Destroyer? Never. It's always the act of extraordinary bravery by some fighter squadron. If you switch it over to use Call to Arms you run the risk of offending people's understanding of the way the Star Wars universe works. Yep strange .....

Re: B5 RPG Space Combat - how is it?

You shouldn't be able to take out anything bigger than a Corellian Blockade runner in a few rounds (6 torps and boom!) LBH This is exactly what I was saying! And that is why I like the Mongoose's space combat system SO much better as there is a balance between fighters and capital ships. They can h...

Re: B5 RPG Space Combat - how is it?

There's a mission in the X-Wing PC game similar to that, you're in an X-wing, you have to knock out the shield generators above the bridge to let the ion cannons on the Y-wwings disable the ship. A lucky B-Wing (or ata push a Y-Wing) could do it without support, but without ion cannons an X-wing wo...

Re: B5 RPG Space Combat - how is it?

How is the B5 RPG's space combat system? Are there rules for starship construction? How do they compare with some of the other d20/OGL sci-fi rules on the market (d20 Future, Blood & Space, etc.)? I only know one other d20 Space Combat system and that is that from StarWars ... and compared to this,...

Hi guys, Vehicles are indeed due for a revision in Babylon 5, starting with starships in August! WOW nice reply Matthew! :D I can't help but remember a similar discussion for the StarWars rpg in regards to the incredible low DR (DR 5) of the AT-ST walker. There the only official reply fans got was ...

Good luck 8) LBH Hey LBH! Thankx!!!!!!!!! :D Well it was interesting we had to deal with the aftermath of not getting the Doc out -- mostly with our own conscience. :( Aside from that nothing was done. But I guess it might have been quite some defining moment in the life of my character who probabl...

I would not allow characters to multi-class into the Technomage base class. If they wanted to become a technomage after initial character creation, they would have to take the Prestige Class instead. I believe that is what it is for. Be that as it may. Would have been nice if the Techno-Mage book i...

Re: techno mage PrC update?

It is clear that techno-mages can't multiclass but someone not yet a techno mage should be able to become one still (even though the requirements are bound to be high -- as they are in the original Techno-Mage PrC). So just registred so that I can now edit my posts :wink: Just wanted to add that my...
