Re: B5 Space Combat - Some Thoughts - and Comments?

A Call to Arms functions as a stand alone game, allowing you to fight B5 battles in space to your heart's content. It will also have links to the RPG, so if your players have moved into positions of great responsibility, they will be able to lead entire fleets to war. That is the first point - A Ca...

If the game is supposed to interface with the RPG, then a slightly reworkrd version of the B5W system would be great.

Otherwise it would depend on the scale of the game in question.

Actually the whole story is... Bruce (Agent 1) bought out the old AOG inventory from several distributors early last year and has been selling them quite legally ever since. I have ordered over $500 worth of stuff myself (at thats at about a 25% discount or more). For full details look at the "Would...

Ok here's what I understand about Jump Drives and how they recharge. In Babylon 5 Wars one combat round is 10 seconds. Most jump delays are between 20 and 24 rounds. So 10 * 20 = 200 seconds 200/60 = 3 minutes 20 seconds Which means in the time it takes a shuttle to warm up, launch from the Warlock...

The harsh language aside: ...I hope thatsomeone informs J. Michael Straczynski that a racist makes his idea look bad. This part actually has quite a point.

An earlier post from Agent 1 said it was basically done on a "that looks good" basis.

Personally I would like to see Mongoose resurrect the B5W system and edit it into a perfect starship combat d20 system.

Its already pretty close and shouldnt be too hard to convert.

It is, but Bruce is on record in these forums as saying that the ship designs are generaly done on a "that-sounds-good" basis.

A few key ships were evidently carefully converted from other sources (probably Babylon 5 Wars) and the others compared to it until the "that-sounds-good" point was found.

Then the G'Quan jumps in and starts firing at the ShadowShip, which mysteriously stops moving and does nothing in return. There was a playtest rule in B5 Wars that explained that situation. Anytime a Shadow ship was hit with a sustained (a weapon firing mode that allows a weapon to continually hit ...

You guys should pick up a copy of "War Of The Ancients" for Babylon 5 Wars if Bruce still has any. It really lays out the whys and hows of the ancient races and explains most of the things covered in this thread in a creative and canon manner. Just a few points being: Way back when, the Shadows pilo...

Personally, I would like to see a set system for converting ships from the Babylon 5 Wars system to the RPG system.

The B5W ships were well balanced and distinct, with a few tweaks that system could be reworked into an excellent ship system for the rpg.

Normally LOS means "visible in range", in this case LOS probably means the same thing as the true LOS reference to telepath LOS range in hyperspace (if you can see it, you can jam it).

I was hoping that B5 would use the Con/Vitality system from Star Wars. It is much more effective for representing the kind of high-tech combat we see in B5. Lets face it, shrugging off a PPG hit just isnt likely, no one is going to be able to survive a glop of superheated plasma square to the chest....
