I finally got my copy today. After a fight with Wal-Mart.com, which refused to sell it for unknown reasons after I had ordered it in advance, and then having my second order through the ENWorld online store get lost in the mail, it finally showed up, slightly damaged from shipping, but more or less ...

Well, we can always hope that a new show would pick up where the plague left off and show us the same story he had originally intended from a different angle. I just hope that the new how focuses less on the station and is set on a ship that goes places and does things. Either way, this is the most ...

On the other hand attacks on countries are welcome . See Iraq or Earth Alliance Fiction Book. So it seems. A personal attack is something, which requires some kind of personal involvement on both parts. A summary abuse of ALL people of a nation is much easier to perform, as there will be no possibl...

I think length/height is a valid thing to want an "accurate" measurement of. After all, how else am I going to be able to tell a space-suited PC who wants to take a walk on the outside of the ship how far they can go?

Not this again. Let it drop already. Better yet, the mods should just start deleting these trolls.

Why not some optional rules? How about an option for regular D20 style hit dice - not as the recommended game mode, but something for a more combat intensive game. Information on Crusade. Give me everything you have on the drakh, the excalibur, the drakh ships, and the drakh plague. More locations o...

Too late. (Maybe "taking everything serious" and "not even understanding the concept of 'humour' at all" are somewhat more accurate german traits? ) Hmm, not a fan of satire are we? That's okay, the English didn't understand it in the 1700's when Jonathan Swift submitted A Modest Proposal . Humanit...

Just in case anyone reading my earlier post isn't familliar with me from other boards, don't take anything I say seriously. Unless I mean it seriously. Most people should be able to figure out the difference with little difficulty.

Okay. . . What would you like to see in such an errata? As someone with a strong German heritage, I recommend something like this: People of the world today are righteously sensitive to the point where reading fictional material about their country of origin or heritage causes unwanted pangs of nat...

As someone with a strong German heritage, I laughed when I read the description of Germans in the EA Factbook. I laughed even harder when I read the troll that started this thread. This dude clearly needs to lighten up and look in the mirror to figure out why nobody likes him. On a separate note, wh...

Yet another reason to hate Wal-Mart

Maybe the reason they can't ship it is because they messed up on the price and listed it for close to $10 below the MSRP? Limited printing my hairy arse! This order is for the Minbarri Fact Book. Dear Darrin Drader, We are writing to let you know that we are unable to fill your order for Babylon 5. ...

I finally managed to track down a copy today :D . I'm glad it has the prestige classes and history, but the parts that really drew me in were the detailed information on the coliny worlds and the ships. I have to say that this is the best expansion book to date and I am very much looking forward to ...

Re: Have you seen Babcom?

The fan produced Babcom had an issue a few months ago that went into where Crusade was going and how Gideon was going to be taking on the blackest of EA black projects! :shock: It was quite an eye-opener and I just wish the series had survived to show it all to us.

Actually that makes a lot of sense. I don't actually agree with every point you make about the core book, but I'm not going to call you to task to defend that review again.

Thanks for the clarification.

The reason I ask isn't that I don't think it deserves a 4, but rather because the B5 RPG & Fact Book, which in my opinion is technically as good in design, longer, and with much clearer pictures was only given a 3 by the same reviewer while containing much of the same type and quality of material. I...

KDLadage, I hope you don't mind me asking, but in your review you basically focus on the shortcomings of this book, including the faults with the pictures and the mistakes. I clearly don't disagree with those points. There's also the general feeling people (including myself) have voiced that the epi...

Crusade - How long?

Clearly every B5 fan who had high hopes for Crusade was immensely disappointed when TNT (AKA the Stinking Bastards) cancelled the series before it even had a chance to air. This disappointment deepened when LoTR turned out the way it did. In terms of gaming though, I think this era had just as much,...

Man, I really wish I knew what JMS had in mind for that series. While at least one of the episodes was lame (the X-Files rip-off), the other shows were interesting and had some very memorable characters. I feel jipped I didn't get the chance to know Galen, Dureena, and Max better [shakes fists in de...
