ACTA Minbari Fleet- advice needed

'LBH- you were correct as usual. EA factbook shows that Mars has 2 senators out of 120. Incredible when you think that UK alone has 3 EarthGov senators. If Santiago is promising to keep earth out of war and cultivate closer relationships with mars, I cant see these being anything that Marie Crane's ...

On a different note, what say do Mars and other human colonies have in the governing of Earthforce. Thinking about the "no taxation without representation" angle. I can see "Marsies" being disgruntled at having to pay tax for Earthforce. Whilst "Earthers" might resent the extra expenditure incurred ...

I quite like the idea of Marie Crane policies not being diametrically opped to Santiago. I like B5 because it is not black and white- most organisations are varying shades of grey. I don't want the PC's thinking that challenger is "good" and incumbent is "bad", especially before Clake's coup-de-etat...

B5-Season 1-Presidentail election Question

Hi We know that incumbent Present Luis Santiago promises to cut the budget and keep Earth out of war. His agenda for his second term includes cultivating a closer relationship with the Mars colony and "preserving Earth cultures in the face of growing non-Terran influences”. What do we know specifica...

Have been reading fiery trial. I like the way it is structured- it gives a good framework for running campaign in 2258 but with enough flexibility to drop in any alternative or home written scenarios. I particualrly like the Universe today handouts- I am looking forward to getting those printed off ...

Not sure about Fiery Trial before Cold Equations, never real lined the two up against each other. What do you mean by online resources? not that I use online stuff much for my gaming, but I do have all the old downloads from the Mongoose website kicking about somewhere on my hard drives. LBH Thanks...

Thanks LBH That was a quick reply!! I was worried after the old B5 RPG section of forum had gone that would nt get much response. In that case I wont bother tyring to get Leap of faith for the moment. I will sit down and have a good read through Fiery Trial. How easy would it be to run it before Col...

From what i can see, the Cold Equations/Ragged edge and 1st ed The Fiery Trial are all set in 2259 ie during season 2. Is there any of the publishe...

One of those Japanese trading kit models, Futura I think, made a transparent smaller model of the Bird of Prey. Not sure on it's size. Never picked one up, didn't see the point, if it's cloaked, you're not meant to see it right? :lol: Just so the persons who has it in his/ her fleet knows where it ...

Also, on a personal note, my entire Early Years fleet is white, Third Age fleet grey, Crusade fleet dark grey and Psi Corps fleet black. @ Locutus: You mean him? :wink: LOL, IIRC there was someone else actually but I've just run with the same idea :) It also helps keep ships from each fleet separat...

UK Players??

Hi- I have seen the UK club locator in other part of forums. But it appears to relate to ACTA rather than B5 RPG.

Anyone playing B5 RPG anywhere near Leeds/West Yorkshire?

Have car- can travel!!

Cheers
