I know next to nothing about Luther Arkwright, but I noticed that Big Finish have released a three CD Luther Arkwright audio adventure.

Their audios are generally of pretty high quality, and the blurb makes it sound rather good. I'll find the budget to buy it one of these days.

Myself (the fantastic Marcus Kaide) : Try to prevent yourself being sucked out of a shuttle bay along with the atmosphere (when you just accidently triggered the decompression sequence) by grabbing onto a toolbox. As toolboxes aren't fixed to the deck this doesn't help matters. As a GM : Forget abo...

I just got a pay rise and splurged on all the books I hadn't got yet :)

Then I splurged on some other stuff.

Now I need to wait a couple of months without spending anything to let the bank balance recover.

The gathering is not where Kosh comes for the first time in B5 ? and sinclair is in trouble about it ? Yes. It was going to be the feature length season opener, but it took longer then expected for the network to come back and say "Yes, you can have a series". So season 1 started at the front end o...

When I GM I tend to ignore most of the rules in the interest of speed (better to advance the plot then spend vast amounts of time rolling dice IMO), but still get the books as they are packed with vast amounts of really juicy background information.

I won't swear to it (Matt can do that later if I'm right), but I seem to recall that all the Mongoose published stuff is JMS approved and canon (as are the books and comics).

Re: Region 2 Season 5 DVD Release Date?

*plans bulk order* Oh! And don't forget The Movie Box Set. Oddly, the Region 2 version seems to lack In The Begining and The Gathering - but, IMO, that is a good thing as they are available seperately and I already own them :) And then there is Crusade - which never got a chance to live up to its p...

I'm no physicist or anything so this is the bit I'm having a hard time with.

Raghesh SyncStation

Page 130 of the Centauri book shows a location marked Raghesh SyncStation. It 100% clear as to what this is. My best guess is that it is the orbital platform mentioned in the text - in a geosynchronous orbit. Is this right? Also - is Raghesh a misspelling of Ragesh? The text matches up with what we ...
