And I would argue that, perhaps one level in every 3 or 4 of a typical Enlisted Navy type should be in the Soldier class...

Perhaps I need to write up an article on common multi-class paths...

...hmmm...

Re: Errata...please?

It doesn't have ... a mass combat system that doesn't work ... It does have a starship combat system that does not (in my opinion) work. ===== Issue #1: The Sensors, the Acquire Target bonus and Firing my weapons For example, on page 73, it states that a character may take any of the following comb...

I posted a discussion (in this thread) on several options for hit points. These would allow a Game Master to tailor the game to the level of combat deadliness desired in her/his game. Please feel free to use any and all of that. If you want it edited, expanded upon or trimmed down -- I am available ...

*snickers at your sig* Doesn't the Primus have four battle lasers? Or was this something from 1st Edition that we corrected in 2nd Edition? Oops... That would be a typo... yes, it has four battle-lasers. I am a Centauri player, to the bone. And despite the Primus being a bit undergunned (compared t...

{snip} However if a player is blantantly abusing the system, the GM should just say 'No'. There's no need for for multiclassing penalties in B5 IMHO. Agreed. Which means we can leave behind this whole "favored class" thing as well and move on. In a related note, I would like there to be more "core ...

I seriously doubt it, given the tendency for _all_ ships in Babylon 5 to have sizes that seem to ... well, let's just say that the sizes for all ships in Babylon 5 tend to change to meet the needs of the story at the time, and the whims of the special effects guys.

I like the new rules. One thing I would add would be that each of them also has listed in their Skill Bonus section " Profession " for the chosen profession; i.e.: Dock Workers would gain a +1 to Profession (Dock Worker) . Optionally, one could rule that Workers gain an additional +1 with their prof...

Next wish: Right now we have a series of maps in the B5 RPG. Two in particular are very important: the star map (which claims only shows "major" systems and capitals), and hte map of the B5 Station. What would it take to get Mongoose to publish a full-sized poster version of the starmap on high-glos...

I would like, either in this companion volume, or as a book in-and-of itself, a "Who's Who" of the Babylon-5 Universe. For an example of the sorts of things I would like to see in this book, check out the Steve Jackson Games' WHO'S WHO I and WHO'S WHO II books. In these cases, I would like to have p...

OK... now for some of my ideas (more later and this weekend): Setting the Tone with Hit Points : In the default Babylon-5 setting, we have a bit of a dichotomy. On the one hand, hit points are kept relatively low (1d6+a few to start; then you get 1, 2, or 3 hit points each level thereafter) in order...

That is enough. True. KD, you are not helping.
