That's way to early for me. I'll make a fashionably late entrance sometime in the afternoon ;)

I don't think telepaths are meant to be balanced with the other classes. As in the TV show, telepaths ARE more powerful than normals and this is reflected in the game. As Wade put it in one episode it's homo superior vs. homo sapiens! On the flip side though, if you have a human telepath then they a...

It was definately not found in season 1 as in the very last (unfilmed) episode, they are still looking for a cure (I have the script so I'm quite sure about this). However, I will check out the Crusade DVDs so thanks for that. I do recall hearing that the cure would be found in season 2 and that the...

Crusade timeline

I am intergrating my campaign with the Crusade story. Now I know that if it had been continued, they would have found a cure for the plague (prob in season 2) and the Excalibur would have gone renegade due to the bloack ops group that created the Shadow hybrid vessel seen in the series. Does anyone ...

When the Centauri Emperor came to B5, he had 2 telepaths with him. While not shown on the show, I am sure there was a lot of closed-door politics with EarthGov and PsiCorp to allow that to happen. There have been several instances of alien telepaths on Babylon 5. There may be special rules they mus...

Thanks for your reply. I like to keep things canon where possible, but if no location has been specified then I will most likely place it near the rim not too far from the Z'ha'Dum region as that would best serve my campaign ;)

I bought 2nd rules. Although the book itself was better, having all the rules within it (not needing a seperate D20 rulebook), I have to say I prefer 1st Ed and still use it. I prefer minimal rules (as do my players) and 2nd Ed seemed to have lots of rules for the sake of it. IMO, influence does not...

Sector 420

Hi I've not posted here for a while, but I'm back again and working on my B5 campaign. I am thinking of using the secret Earthforce base located in Sector 420 (mentioned in Crusade "End of the Line") and wanted to know where it was located, or at least which systems/worlds it is near to. Does anyone...

Welcome back Ghost Dancer, no comment on the pimping.

Yes, I'm pretty sure he does avoid him earlier as well. When Kosh confronts him I think it catches Morden a little off guard

Episode timeline & race info

Hi I've been a bit of a stranger around these parts lately so thought it was about time to show my face again and do some shameless pimping of my website ;) I've added a few new pages which may (or may not) be of use to people: Episode timeline - now I know there are various timelines knocking about...

So, Pat (Lyta) passes on doing the series after the pilot. Andrea (Talia) takes over as station teep after Lyta is recalled to Earth. Ironheart gives Talia a gift and a few eps later Kosh investigates her using the vicar, Abbut. Andrea does almost two seasons as Talia, but Andrea leaves the show. P...

"Three days is the time to the jumpgate off Io. "

Is that from the Babylon 5 station? if so, that would fit in with my 1 day per gate idea.

There is no jump gate at earth anymore. It was moved to the "transfer point at Io" sometime before, during or after the Earth Minbari war. There's a section about this in the "Earth Alliance sourcebook" if I'm not mistaken. Chernobyl Ah, forgot about IO. I'll check out EA book as well - thanks :)

Hyperspace Travel Times + Jump gates

The Galactic Guide has some basic info on travelling times through real space, but I can't see any info on how long it takes to travel through hyperspace. Does anyone have any ideas on this, or do you tend to just make it up? I currently work on the rule of approximately 1 day per jump gate along th...

My game is set toward the end of 2266, a few months before the events of "A Call to Arms". I don't think my players have seen the film or Crusade so they will be in for a nice surprise in a few sessions :)

Thanks for your replies. Gar - your system seems ok, but does not take into account the luck factor (e.g. what cards you get dealt), for no matter how good someone is, luck always pays a part. I'll check out the Crusade book too but I may try and come up with my own system which primarily simulates ...
