I'm pretty sure that it did take place between B5 and Crusade. To the best of my knowledge they have not been done in novels. The Bester novels skip right over it.

Indeed. At a later date, there will be an ISA Ranger prestige class with less stringent entry requirements. However, we are all going to have to wait for the ISA to be set up first :) Based on what was in Legend of the Rangers and some of the later B5 episodes, I wouldn't make the ISA ranger any mo...

My .02s... Personally I hated Ivannova, the fearlessness and intimidation just panged of self rightous spoilt kid. And she seemed as Russian as Ross Periot. Some scenes with her worked but most didn't as she seemed almost psychotic in her failure to emotionalise or connect. Certainly the officer mos...

I agree. Constructive criticism helps make future products better. When you give all negative criticism, it just makes everyone think you're a jerk.

Guest is clearly a troll. Stop feeding it. I've already posted my grievances with the 2nd season book, but I want to stress that I'm still 75% happy with it. The other 25% I can look past. Its still one of the best values for the dollar in the gaming industry at this time, being full color with 142 ...

One of the things most people probably don't realise is that Spelling, Gramatical and Typographical errors are actually COMMON in written published material, even where the writers come from an English Language background. Even in Language textbooks there are errors. Its a GAME you bought, NOT a bo...

Barendur, the reason that people like Sheridan and Marcus weren't in the Core book is that they would open the floodgates. If they are included, what about people from later series, or tech, or synopsi? Suddenly the book blossoms into an Encyclopaedia, or a lot of detail is cut out. I also diagree ...

So I just got my copy of The Coming of Shadows. Unfortunately I have to say that the title is a little too accurate. The pictures are so dark I have a hard time making out what most of them are supposed to be. Whoever is in charge of this needs to increase the brightness and the contrast next time. ...

"The Hand"... So in my B5 universe, the Hand was just a bunch of mid-born guys who found that extremely old city (probably build by Lorien with his race's equivalent of lego blocks), with the extradimansional portal or whatsit, and hid there from the Shadows (or the Vorlons, or the Kirishiac, or so...

Looks great! I'm really happy that you guys have been making so much available early. Putting the White Star into Signs & Portents 1 so that they can be used before the book they're actually released in was very cool. This is extremely cool as well. Keep up the great work with this game! You're maki...

Re: What I'd Like to See

This was exactly what went wrong with the expanded Star Wars universe - having established the Death Star as the ultimate weapon, a bunch of hack writers kept coming up with a never-ending succession of even more powerful weapons (the ludicrously indestructible Sun Crusher being my personal 'favour...

Re: What I'd Like to See

As well as Crusade stuff, I'd like to see material based on The Legends of The Rangers movie (particularly the enigmatic Hand who are supposed to out-Shadow the Shadows) and the other movies and possibly - although there are probably copyright issues - the books and comics. No offense, but can't we...

I'm in favor of this. Of course I'm the type of GM that doesn't dwell on a lot of rules restrictions unless there are players who are intent on abusing them. Luckily I have a good group of players, so I'm willing to give them some slack. As for the benefits of taking a lot of different classes, I'm ...

This is, indeed, exciting news. A few things I would suggest: Do not place the d20 logo on it. By making this OGL only, you can include those two areas of the d20 system that cannot be included when the d20 logo is attached to it. Include the 40-odd pages of material from the SRD that (in my opinio...
