Amazon is selling the P&P and the 2E Fleet Book, while listing the 2E Rule Book as temporarily out of stock: http://www.amazon.com/Powers-Principalities-Babylon-Mongoose-Publishing/dp/1906103941/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1250033061&sr=8-1 http://www.amazon.com/Babylon-Call-Arms-Fleet-Book/dp/1905850646...

WTB: Brakiri and Minbari

I am interesting in possibly purchasing Minbari and Brakiri models: I would prefer unpainted, unassembled models, if possible, but am willing to consider assembled, painted models so long as pictures of them are available. Thank you!

Indeed! Regardless, even if buying a Warlock is "cheesy" the problem still stands; the only way the Defending player remotely has a chance to win a battle and thus get the initiative to bring the fight to the Raiders player is if he gets a high Raid priority points roll early on, or consistently get...

Tentative Advanced Raider Campaign

If anyone remembers, a friend and I had started a Raider campaign; you'll also remember I abruptly stopped posting updates to it. The reason is simple. My opponent, the Defending player, gave up because, put simply (No offense to Matt) the Raider player had far too many advantages. He could bring ho...

What I'd like to see from the show is the iconic ships performing up to snuff, and particularly the EarthForce Navy being more than the semi-decent to decent punching bag they end up as in ACTA... that, and Narn being the formidable naval force they're acclaimed to be. Ships like the Omega and G'Qua...

Why not also slap on that if you CBD! you can't use an SA in the next turn, as your crew try to sort things out again?

Tschuma has it right. As I note in the end phase for the first campaign turn, we're using modified fleet lists and rules (modified beam rules, the "BBS"). Thanks for reading, though.

Except that, in the case of this battle, the Shadow player is apparently only taking 20 Shadow Scouts, which would mulch through the 36 flights of Vorlon Fighters, leaving your four Destroyers and two Light Cruisers to fight off the remaining Shadow Scouts. Sure, they'd cause some damage, but they'd...

5 war points? Take 2 light cruisers, 4 destroyers and 36 fighters. Set up a pillbox of Vorlon death with the cruiser in back and the destroyers up front. Make sure you all stop for a turn so you can all stop and pivot the next. The first two two turns you will outrange him so pop as many scouts as ...

Centauri are strong if played well and the dice favour you - like everything in this game. You're very vulnerable to critical hits, especially so since Centauri have below average damage scores. Your main weapon, ion cannons, struggle to hit hull 6 targets, even with twin-linked. You lack beams and...

4AD is fine - it should just be forward arc because on screen evidence shows that it is not boresighted. In the one episode we see the G'Quan fire at an angle, we also see it fire into the side arc. So we should add that. http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/gregsmith/misc/G'Quan%20firing%20(600%20x%20348).j...

I take Auroras to Thunderbolts in a 1:2 Ratio (1 Aurora for every 2 T-bolts), though even then I find them rather underpowered for their relative cost and survivability. You need massive numerical superiority to get anything out of fighters with any speed, otherwise you're plinking away for handfuls...

And yes I know the G'Quan blows up a lot in the show, it's a large part of why the crit tables are so nasty, but in that case make the G'Quan a lower pl to indicate it's ability. It takes B5 and a G'Quan to take on the Primus right? Ripple Took a crippled G'Quan and B5 to take on a Secondus/Primus ...

The proposer cited evidence, that WS end up with no crew due to large holes in the hull, rather than leaving any MArie Celeste-esque type hulls floating around, structurally intact but with a dead crew I caught that, but its poor reasoning. Because of their very nature, white stars are more likely ...
