Re: Missing power...

Nope...and I have mentioned it several times. I was thinking that they will add it to Thirdspace (Second Edition book? not sure if everything is coming out in 2nd Ed now or not). There are many, many, many Psi Powers that are not documented. I would buy a book that was dedicated to Psi Powers (not j...

I have to wonder if Thirdspace will include any Psi stuff since they covered that a P9 can detect Hidden Cameras.

Since that is also where we find out that the Vorlons made Lyta into a Memory Keeper as well I wonder if her Character Stats will refelct that.....at least Modification I.

Re: Confused about some powers

I've got a question about a few powers whose range to P-rating seems to be off. Jamming has a Power requirement of 15 and close range. However, P12s can get long range. Likewise Locate Mind needs P10 for close, but P7 for medium and P9 for long. Is there an erratta I'm missing, or do I misunderstan...

So what you are saying is there is no real purpose in attaining P-13+ level? not at all, the higher the P-rating the harder it is for other Teeps to make the will save. Which also could give a GM a carrot for the P-13+ characters, by allowing a P-13+ to double their Charisma bonus when determining ...

Re: Detecting Telepathy and making your save

Like a doofus I ran off and left my book at a player's house. Can someone tell me what the rules are for detecting that someone is using telepathy, and if every power that may possibly affect you (from Pain to Jamming) allows a save? Also, are there any telepath prestige classes apart from Prophete...

True, but for the most part those are 'One shot' plot elements that only Lyta and the Great Machine are capable of. One could consider letting a P-13+ Teep have access to one power from the Vorlon Telepathy chart in 'Light and Shadows' if you like, but I would make them really earn it. So what you ...

Influence in Second Edition

The search engine is wonderful on these types of forums....grrrr I was hoping that they would break the forums out into First and Second Edition (like another game company I have been spending my time at). I finally decided to give B5 another try with the Second Edition. Influence seems to be a thor...

Of course this still does not answer the question. Are there any special abilities for P13+ like in the show? Lyta controlled a whole room full of people (at least 52 that I was able to count by using slow-mo on DVD). She was also able to extend her senses through the air ducts and then send a messa...

In business, there is a thing called "Due Diligence". If a company was diligent in attempting to find out all the facts in a business deal and the deal turned out to be bad for that company, the company is not held liable for that contract. That is the whole justification for using Telepaths in the ...

I agree with Barbara completely. A GM that allows a Psi (GURPS) / Telepath (B5) to run wild, gets what they deserve. Unless you are running an Akira level Psi game, most Psi characters never dominate the game/show/book without someone to place the character in check. A Psi character may have an adva...

Now that is a cool way of looking at it. You have esentially a Q40 Tesla Coil that opens the tear into Hyperspace. I tend to (when I was creating my Outpost 23 background) look at Q40 as Plutonium; dangerous, rare, has to be processed under very exacting conditions and so forth. But it has a decay ...

I agree with this opinion, I'd make them top at level 20 and make it match with the end of their "story". It also prevent PCs to become so uber they won't be afraid of combat anymore, which is kind of wrong from my point of view. Got to keep it realistic. I thought that is what makes Heros...someon...

I don't think her powers are linked to XP, or the mods the Vorlons gave her added a ton of XP. She always had the powers, she is just discovering them within herself as the season progresses. LBH Quite correct. There were some things that the Vorlons left a built in users manual as with Thirdspace ...

Wheel of Fire

After all the time I waited for this (I had to order it online since my FLGS, and F no longer stands for Friendly, and it got lost in shipping), to say that I am disappointed just does not describe me. I had suggested that in a Second Edition Rules change that if Mongoose only puts out books for the...

Bester is in the catagory of Epic after Wheel of Fire, as he is a 10th Level Psi-Cop/10th Level Telepath.

I would like to see how they work this, since most of the main characters would be Epic level anyway, especially the way Telepaths are done.

what I would like to know is how much is consumed with each jump? It would have to be a small amount otherwise your average person would not be able to afford to travel outside their solar system. I don't think Q40 is a fuel for jump gates/engines. I think you just need it as a building material. L...

As would I.

Errata seems to be in short supply for all of the products. I know some have been answered in the Forums, however a link to the forum for the product would be nice as the search engine is selective on what it returns.
