I couldnt even begin to guess... there are licenses i would like to see, but for all that, I have yet to see any of those likes brought to fruition in any serious way. I've often thought (with Mongoose and other companies) I think I know what a particular license will be... but they invariably end u...

People should not be too overly critical based on the TV series either (the two part mini series was much better than the followup series), but the whole thing is based on a series of books and it is very good.

I used to love Dark Future, with the campaign rules from White Dwarf it was a bucket load of fun.

Mage wrote:I know about the villians and that, but the magic system would be really complicated, as it is so open to creativity and imagination.
But it does have very fixed and immutable limitations, which if broken have dire consequences as the heroes find out to thier cost.

I also would not say 'no' to some manga titles, like Full Metal Alchemist. Fifth element and battle royal would also make damn good RPGs.
Full Metal Alchemist would be cool, that has some really nice elements...though does get a bit trippy towards the end :)

Would Like to See

After being inspired to point out some games I'd like to see put into RPG form after reading Mage's top ten wargame wants. And after not being able to find the individual threads relating to these particular games anymore I figured i'd repost a list of my own. (please note these are RPG wants, not w...

It never ceases to amuse me, when people make real life comparisons to RPG game issues.. "Why would X work in the game when it doesnt in real life".. The "Why", is because it IS a game and therefore not bound by our own earthly limits, laws and strictures. Suspend disbelief my friends... RPGs are no...

1) As is often the case in such books, the production model ships are better than the players can make using the construction rules. Same was true of Meks in A:2089 LBH Thats correct, we raised the point during playtest and the abover is pretty much the explanation we got. As for point 2, that isnt...

I watched a pretty good Conan inspirational film yesterday on Sci Fi. It was called "Minotaur", based on the greek mythology. It was actually pretty good and had all the conan elements, scantily clad women, crazy evil villain, huge demon spawned beast, dark magics and prophecies and plenty of blood ...

Good point about SpaceQuest Neo. I'm not a fan of the D20 system. The current version of B5 isn't flawed, and just feel it's not the right kind of rules for the universe. It's rather gritty, and I found that lowering the hit points didn't give you that feel. Garibaldi gets shot in the back at the e...

Re: Is this game dead?

This board seems awful quiet lately? Everyone sick of B5? Personally, I pray some day that it will be on thr runequest system. I love Babylon 5, but I feel that the D20 system isn't right for it. I would prefer to see an MRQ version of the rules, like they are doing with Slaine. Well theres always ...

Personally I would have said something along these lines, costs slightly less than others mention because the impetus is to assign multiple areas and thus increase the costs in order to get a facility that provides for quantities as needed and required. As a thought, I would also allow multiple faci...

Re: Looking for some B5 fonts, please help

Hi all, Can anyone point me in the direction of a couple of B5 fonts, specifically the B5 Station font and the Psi Corps font (As used on the signs in Season 5's The Corps is Mother, The Corps is Father). I want them for a little side project of mine. I'll likely be using them in Word so compatible...

I'm psyched about this game. I am a huge fan of both MMOs and traditional tabletop games, and most of my tabletop players are into both also. What I have seen of this game so far looks sweet, and I'm just torn between playing a demon summoning spellcaster or a greataxe wielding barbarian. Hmmm,... ...
