I've bought all the script books so far but not sure about this next set. Since most of it seems to come from online sources I think most fans will know most of this stuff already.

If anyone does buy this one, I'd like to hear if its worth getting or not.

Not sure of the release date (I would guess Nov/Dec), but I'm scheduled to start work on the Zhodani book in a couple of months :)

Can we know what kind of group of player characters will be appropriate for this campaign? Pretty please ? There will be fighting but the campaign is not combat oriented. Stealth, investigation & negotiation skills will also be needed, so you a balanced party is recommended. Some, if not all, of th...

Each system has details on the main world(s) including a brief history, laws and places of interest. The scenarios on each world vary - some are small, some are big, but they all form part of the campaign.

Yes, most will be illustrated and some of the larger vehicles will have deck plans where appropriate.

Yes, the system already exists :)

One may suspect that a vehicle design system may very well show up in one of the upcoming vehicle books. Just a thought. Correct. The Civilian Vehicles and Military Vehicles books will include the vehicle design system. I will be starting work on these books next month :) I'm not sure of the exact ...

That would be the 14 part adventure "The Legacy of War", being published one episode per issue of S&P, currently on episode 4, which means the last episode should be in next January's issue. Provided, that is, that further episodes can be published after the B5 licence expires, or that there will b...

Re: S&P B5 Legacy of War

I see Signs & Portents is running a 14 part Babylon campaign in it called 'Legacy of War'. I'm disappointed to see it using the Traveller rules rather than the 2nd edition B5 rules (i am unfamiliar w/these other rules and i hate converting from a new system). Anyone on here running this? Traveller ...

There is one editor, as with most of our publications. . .
That means Yes?
Not really no. There are other people involved in the process of putting a publication like S&P together.

Edit: but the editor probably has the biggest and toughest job ;)

Cheers, although typically I did find a few prices after I made the post (P98 1st Ed rules) which I can use as a baseline (not sure how I missed them before!).

Ship Costs

I am trying to get some approximate values of ships but can't see any in the books. I don't necessarily want costs of each individual ship, but just some guidelines. E.g. cost of a fighter, civilian transport etc.

Any suggestions would be helpful, thanks :)

What makes you say that? No matter how advanced computers are, they still need people to design and program them.

So fusion power it is then, thanks for the info :) I suspect that power in B5 is not as fuel-dependent (is that the right word?) as in Traveller. I agree, but they do definately need fueling. I do remember a couple of references, one in In the Beginning and/or Atonement when the Grey Council mention...

Ship Power Systems & Fuel

I've never really thought about this until now, but what sort of power systems and fuel do ships in B5 use? I know that Quantium-40 is used for hyperspace, but other than that I don not recall any mention of how they power their engines, weapons, life support etc. I would guess different races would...

I've never really thought about it TBH, but it would make sense to allow it. I don't think the rules police will be knocking on your door if you do ;)

That's great news. I always liked to play the mystic class - and with my dice rolling that meant I generally got to cast one spell a day lol but still great fun.

A few years ago I managed to get hold of the books 1 to 4, but never found 5 or 6 within my price range and in reasonable condition.

Just about every roleplayer I know hates D20 with a passion, so my players are keen to give the new Traveller rules a go when they come out, as am I.
