Re: Death of Personality

I'm putting a NPC into my PBEM game and was looking for ideas on how DoP should work. The situation is that the NPC was involved in an event about ten years ago and then dropped out of sight. About three years ago, he was captured as a Raider in an attack on a freighter. Found guilty in EA space, h...

Ahhhh.... Technomages. The most likely to be asked for class, but the rarest in the galaxy. :) Unless of course you make it the core of your campaign.

I like the idea, though it might make it more of a pain to keep track of things if you have anything approaching a moderately sized fleet. Unless of course you could just roll one initiative for each side, though keeping track of all the weapons would still be a minor headache.

You're close to what I've been thinking about doing, but have not taken it as far as I have. Space is BIG. As such, instead of doubling the range penalties, I square them. -2 becomes -4, -4 becomes -16, etc... I need to game this out a bit, and I am thinking it might be too harsh. The other alternat...

Too bad it's an April Fools joke. I was hoping the B5 Wars game would make a come back. Let's wait to see what Mongoose does with their system for B5 miniatures before we start wishing for the B5 Wars past glory and greatness. Besides, it reminds of a certain Centauri diplomat. Good guy, but had a ...

Currently running a game in College Station.....from Kosovo.

I'm getting my players to set up characters and then I am going to develop backgrounds with them while I am deployed. It'll get much more fun when I get back to Texas.

Ditto regarding fighters being able to fly below the level of the matrix affect of interceptors. And Shadowscout's got it right about the bigger guns being able to intercept. AoG set up the basic combat principles within the B5 universe and Mongoose is following in their footsteps. Though in this ca...

I can definitely see people wanting to AoG's weapon recharge rates, as far as trying to adapt them I don't even think you have to do that much. All you should do is take the rounds in B5W which I've heard are 10 seconds (which I used in explaining time for a jump engine to cycle in another post) an...

Walmart's return policy is pretty much that if you bring them something that they stock, they'll take it back, even if you bought the TV a week ago, watched it, then brought it back because you were just sent to a different duty station and didn't have your TV with you. At least, that's what I hear ...

I agree that they should act the same, but does that mean they should both threshold on 19-20 or on 20?

I think that's the reason some of us gripe so much some times. We have been shown that they actually care about answering our questions quickly, and their success has gone to our heads.

There is a pretty big difference between the B5 Wars setup from AoG and the D20 rules for the B5 RPG. So I wouldn't take too many of AoG's rules and try to put them into the D20 system, atleast not without a lot of work. Your first question-how does firing work: Since the book doesn't specifically s...

After reading all of these posts, I have come to a conclusion.

There really is not enough specific information out there on ...

Loose the dogs of war! The first case was the reptile alien stowing away to B5 and what ruleing would be most likely? This could be as sticky as you want it to be. Maybe the alien just ran into the party and asked them to help it get off station. They could help for reasons of good will or good eco...
