Razuur, 1) You're making me blush again. Quit it. :) :oops: 2) If you liked the Minbari Fackbook, I really hope you'll enjoy Centauri and Narn. I took the lessons I learned from writing Minbari and applied them to the other two races. They came out really nicely... IMHO. 3) The only licenced product...

Having a large battle done in 2-3 hours is exactly what I am shooting for, so never fear... you'll get what you are asking for.

This is also a matter of tastes in gaming. Having seen how Marcus tends to gather information, his 'skill' is more a matter of Intimidation and roleplaying rather than any direct Gather Information. That said, I can certainly see how he should have some skill in Gather Information. That's why I left...

And technically speaking, you could, but remember that this takes time and effort, not to mention being something the Games Master would be well within his rights to limit as he sees fit. As a base rule of thumb, I would treat this like therapy in the real world; no more than twice a week with a sin...

This is where gaming statistics and character background sometimes diverge. I agree totally that Marcus was a worker, but he also had military training. When I wrote him up, I realized that if I made him worker first, it would hamper his total combat ability (which, honestly, is one of the highest i...

Correct. The weapon inflicts 1d6/1d6 in the hands of anyone but an advanced wielder.

The Laser rifle is indeed the Sha'Nar. The Crystal Grenade is the Shard Grenade. The Heavy rifle, Heavy cannon, strike laser, and wing pack were all pulled from the text because of an upcoming military project I have been putting together. I think I might manage an errata posted here if people would...

And that's kinda the point, Red. :) No feat should ever be so powerful that if a character ~doesn't~ take it, they are a fool and will cripple their advancement. At least, that's my opinion on the matter. I wanted to make Turs Andayr available at first level for character that wanted to take it, but...

Calm down, space-invader. We can't always get to every question right away. We have a lot of work to do and lot of things to write, after all. :) In answer to your question, I recommend using Non-Lethal combat in normal instances and subdual combat when running in the Web. The subdual mention in the...

As requested... First, nice background. This is exactly the kind of way a Worker Caste Minbari can be worked into a B5 Campaign. The key, as I see it, to getting Sulann involved in the plot and 'freeing her up' is to remember that the Worker Caste stake their personal honour on the completion of the...

Like other things that are based on a limited number of times per day, you always get at least one use. Thus, a person with Bug Out and no levels in Connection would be able to use it once. As for Master Runner, it has an understood limit of +1 level in any basic class since a character cannot start...
