Gambling

Are there any simple rules for gambling, either Babylon 5 specific, or D20? I know it would use a combination of bluff and sense motive, but I wondered if there was a system in place for doing this? I want my players to take part in a poker game - the stakes are the information they need. I need to ...

Although there is nothing about the actual war/crisis, there is some more info of the aftermath with Bester in the unfilmed Crusade script "Value Judegments". I can't remember how much of this is in the write ups in the Crusade book, but in the script there is a flash back to Besters trial. However,...

Hosting is not a problem (but thanks for the offer). If I do go the 2E route then the old version will still be available but I probably wouldn't update it - I will only really hve time to work on one or the other. I will hopefully have time to read through 2E in detail this weekend so I'll come to ...

In theory that's a good idea LBH, unfortunatley it means doing almost twice the work :shock: so I can only realistically do one or the other!

I am planning to update www.starstuff.co.uk and the char gen but lifes been a bit crazy the last few months - I've recently moved house (after splitting with GF) and my work situation is undergoing some major changes so I've just not had time to do anything. I have got the 2E rules and have had a qu...

There is a small mention of Soul Hunters in Darkness & Light. If memory serves they were created by the Vorlons (or maybe one of the other first ones).

Re: Base classes unbalanced?

The Worker class could be a usable one, but it is in my opinion the most underpowered class. It has very limited class abilities combined with average class skills, skill points hit points and poor BAB. For this class to work it would need to have much better class abilities and/or a second good sa...

A couple of months ago, he and his wife convened a dinner with me, Doug, and Peter Jurasik, which was filled with laughter and stories and good food. He wanted to know all the stories we never told him because, as he said, "Who am I going to tell?" So we did. Because we knew we were saying goodbye,...

yup with Technomages, it isnt the spells that need 2e tweaking (though there are no doubt some that will) so much, as the class itself.
Does the class need a lot of tweaking? As in, Technomage Fact Book 2nd Edition, or just a rules suplement? (maybe a PDF download?)

I'm looking forward to the 2nd edition too :D Also, as mentioned in another thread, most of the material in the supplement books is just information, the actual "rules additions" make up a small part of the content (with maybe a few exceptions such as the Technomage book, but even then most of that ...

Well I haven't picked my copy up yet, but that idea just sits wrong with me, mthough I may change my mind when I read it. LBH I thought it worked quite well and linked the two events up nicely - I watched Thirdspace recently and when Lyta speaks for the Vorlons, they say that when they made the art...

Spooky. Just this week, we were talking about a trilogy of books covering the bottom part of the galactic map, entitled IPX, The Rim and. . . Beyond the Rim. . . Oh yes, this is the sort of thing I want to see :) I like my players to explore the "unknown" - much more fun when they haven't got a clu...

Mind Vaults & the Bureau of Telepathic Integration

Having finally decided to set my campaing in the Crusade timeline, a question occured to me (and to one of my players) regarding the new Bureau of Telepathic Integration and Mind Vaults. During the 6 monthly inspections by Mr Jones, they scan a telepath to see if they have misused their abilities. H...

I've only just got round to reading the preview. I think it sounds good and having all the rules in one book is much better tha having to look up half the D20 rules seperately.

The only thing that I'm dreading is updating my character generator to work with this new edition :shock:

Thanks Chobbly ;)
