alot of the words are spelt the way they are in england but other than that it is relly good book i love it! And well they should be, seeing as Mongoose is an English company :) Our American friends frequently forget that "English" is the correct language, and that they changed the spelling of word...

You might point to Delenn and Sheriden's offspring but this is because she is half human due to having her DNA rewritten by the Chrysalis. There might be other possibilities, where races have been transplated due to, say, Vorlon interference but then they're actually the same race, just living on d...

At the risk of disagreeing with you, Neo and Gabriel_Luna, I like having the stats of the First Ones; after your players are embroiled in their plans eventually they might want to take on the masters rather than the servants (and probably crushed into a pulp in the process, but that's another story...

Re: Shadows & Vorlons - 2nd Ed Treatment?

I would not call the Technomages a boost, more like a joke (sorry Neo) for it messes up the Technomages classes and the ship i think theVorlons and the Shadows dont need to be boosted I think you misunderstand what the purpose of the Techno Mage article was SQ.. One of the main facets of B5 2e was ...

Hellhawk i agree with you; why not convert the stats from the 1st edition to the 2nd edition instead of a rewrite? Things havent been re-written, they have been re-formatted. Some tweaks, fixes, improvements etc...as was the intent of all things second edition. But it certainly isnt a re-rwite or r...

Why would you want to do anything that keeps you from increasing your mastery of the Tech? Or, in rules terms: Why wold you want to do anything that lets you lose spell points? Firstly because a) noone is born a technomage, and not all are traine dyoung.. many techno-mages were other things first. ...

The changes to the destruction spells let me guess, that we will get revised prestige classes and that the Destroyer will become a 5-level prestige class. So what would a Destroyer do at level 16, then? Take up a second prestige class? Or hang up the mantle of Technomage altogether, since there's n...

Just to clarify, I wasn't trying to blame anyone.

We decided to implement the armor damage rules as they were ...

Re: State of the Mongoose 2006 - RPGs

On the other hand, development is about to begin on SpaceQuest, a set of science fiction rules based on RuneQuest, and a number of settings will be appearing to support this as well. Both Judge Dredd and Strontium Dogs have been mooted as possibilities but, as yet, nothing has been confirmed. At la...

It was re-wrote "these" are the new rules and it was playtested, I was among one of the groups that did it, so you may wish to choose your comments a little more prudently ;)

Hi Dom 1 - Pilot as a class skill. This is in the technomage base book, but not the S&P update. The technomages do get a ship as a class ability and the spells for the ship use the pilot skill bonus. Should this have been a class skill in S&P? Correct, this was an accident on my part the original dr...

Re: Starship armor damage

We had our first starship combat tonight (chapter 2 of Ragged Edge) and there was some confusion over armor damage. First, I knew I'd read about it but we couldn't find it in the book. Then, I came here and found a description of it: Armor Damage Also when you attack a vessel the offensive rating +...

Not really, from the, admittedly very glancing look, I gave it, it's basically new rules where the old ones don't work. Unless Mongoose is going to do this for every 1st edition supplement then they still have a long way to go. And even then it's replacement rather than conversion stats. LBH I'd re...
