Though for the latter two effects, I'd say not TK but the ability to influence/read electronics pretty directly. And what the hell would you call that if not TK? It makes little difference if you move great whole chunks of matter, or just a couple of single electrons - it's still moving stuff with ...

are you sure it`s not the Narn equivalent of Swedish meatballs? Nope - everyone knows the narn equivalent (Breen) is completely legit and OK. But when someone seriously thinks he can get away with writing about the Vorlon equivalent (as if Anyone EVER saw a vorlon eating vorlonic food), and then al...

I'd peg here at 13 or 14, Ulkesh found no problem stopping Lyta's probe... Actually not - remember, her probe got through; that's how she knew what the Vorlons were doing ("...gone? what - the colony?" "No, the Planet "). Ulkesh just punished her afterwards for daring to "know his thoughts". That's...

Certainly the Vorlons are at least P20s. Well... " For now, Games masters may assume that Kosh (and, indeed, any Vorlon) is a telepath rated P15... " Main Book, p.141, Kosh's description. The enhanced Lyta will probably also be a P15, as will most Ancients, while the Thirdspace aliens, the Mindride...

...some other smaller ships (frigates and the like) could had been destroyed in larger numbers... ...which is why according to AoG-B5W fluff the Minbari left those at home, mostly. And that's why we only see Sharlins in the EA/Minbari war... really, it has nothing to do with a small B5 CGI budget.....

You all should be glad. I would love to have the books. but it seems to take an age to get them here in England Strange... I can't really get most books here in Austria, so I usually order them from... guess what... England! Leisure Games actually... And I never had any troubles... they get the goo...

Small correction - the Spoo stuff is canon, as that one was from the lips of JMS himself. Much of the rest is at least halfway usable - the alien festivals are nice to have for BG for example, but the "fact" that the EA post office closes for all the listed festivals is just ridicolous, and should b...

It's... well... half-half. It has some realy nice things to flesh out the BG, like Security procedures, some rules and smal tidbits of info, annectotes and such... On the other hand, some of it is really annoyingly bullshit (like the vorlon equivalent of "swedish meatballs") and should be used only ...

Hey, why should I avoid it - I have been a multi-classed Wargamer/Roleplayer all along! :wink: :lol: I just hope they do the ShadOmega better than AoG... but I won't start That rant here... at least not now. I DID like their take on the Streib ship - never liked the whacky AoG version of that one ei...

Of course I do - :wink:
The Daggaden was in "Showdowns-4".
And thus can also be found in "Ships of the Fleet 2".

Well, they are as official as any of Mongooses stuff - they were part of published supplements done under license and supervision of WB. Originally they both came from the now gone space combat game "Babylon 5 Wars" by "Agents of Gamings". And were now re-featured in another licensed product. There ...

Well, guess what I got in my mail today... I think pre-ordering from Mongoose really IS a good idea! :D That's right, a freshly printed copy of "The Coming of Shadows"!
