All mentions of Treat Injury should be assumed to reference the Medical skill.

Hello, Sundog. You are correct about the molectular pulse cannon. It should be rapid fire, though I left that element off the original write-up as a balancing factor. Without rapid fire, it's a solid, effective weapon. Wioth rapid fire, it becomes a sheer terror. Use whichever version fits your game...

One, the Sharlin is considered a class of ship all by itself by the Minbari and is usually not counted in such comparisons. Two, the descriptions are effectively how the Minbari 'feel' about their ships and what has been said about them by other races. Much as advertising often lists a feature of a ...

Or maybe he has extra copies based on his having dome some reviews (as I have noted he does in other forums). Don't be so quick to assume he hates the game, especially as he has stated quite the opposite several times here.

I can see your point, Guest, but the ship needed to be faster and better able to adjust its speed than a raider vessel (which they were able to fly circles around in the few engagements from the show with raider-like opposents). Since the raiders have an accel of 8, the White Star needed to be consi...

There was virtually nothing there about Minbari prehistory, so a great deal of that section was created wholecloth and approved by the Great Maker. For the rest of it, a mixture of multiple sources, comments from the JMS Speaks web-commentaries, and creative license... which I happily abused. :) -Au...

Old Bear's the man, no doubt about it. 14 is indeed the correct value here. That makes it 6 (!) points better than a Vorlon Transport, so it easily earns its reputation as the fastest thing in space.... or at least, it is until the next ship in its production line comes along. <wicked, knowing grin>...

Thank you, Razuur. Thank you very much. I am glad your wife enjoyed the book as well, especially as I worked as hard as I could to keep the biology consistent and believable throughout that section. (Hard to do for a sentient race with a bone on its head, but hey... :) ) I've got a finishing touch o...

I do the best I can. If it bothers you that much, I am sorry. Dyslexia can be a killer.

If you don't mind my asking, Eryx; what exactly do you mean by 'a little hard going'?

Thanks for liking the book, but I'd love to see what I can do to improve on the next one for you.

As for the Torotha, I went with the most logical of the three (3!) versions I found source material on.

Never discount the morale effects of a round of anal probing...

There is a shining good reason Earth has given the Vree a wide berth before 2265.

I was going to add a joke about 'turning the other cheek', but it seems redundant. :)

Oh... what a thought. Now there's a cool tactic for the Vree in dealing with fighters and vessels rising up out of an atmosphere towards their fleets. Properly timed, the firestorm from their antimatter weapons would cause massive heat flares, pressure disruptions, and more damage than their weapons...

Thank you much, Aide. I know that my post did seem a bit imflammatory, but I care deeply about both my own work and the books put out by our excellent authors. We have a great crew here, and I am proud to be among them. I do welcome criticism, and I hope my tone does not discourage it in the future....
