The roster mentioned is effectively the roster of fleet structures and ships per division given in the Organizations chapter. The ship-by-ship roster proved to be both problematic and impossible to approve, so it was not given in the text. Apologies for any confusion. :( -A (Just assume that if anyo...

Thanks for the words of encouragement, guys! I hope you all like the League of Non-Aligned Worlds when it comes out. I am putting together the chapter synopsis and research for it now. :)

<chuckles> Greatest Mongoose; surely not. But thank you... <blush> Now, to your questions: The reason data plugs and links are left undetailed is that they are so common and yet so widely varied from setting to setting that the decision was made to leave them undefined.

Well, here are two good reasons not to multiclass like that:

1) You end up with a base attack of +2.

2) Many of the basic feats provided by doing this would simply overlap, making them effectively occur again.

<nods>

Certainly your opinion, Ed.

Tell me, the large amount of rules crunch, the entire section of Status rules, the expose on Centauri tactics, special groups, and military forces, and the break down of the Noble Houses was not enough for you?

<sighs>

Sorry to hear it.

It would not be the first error Amazon has made where our books are concerned. They credit Bruce Graw with writing the Minbari book...

Sigh...

They've been emailed about it twice now. Maybe they'll fix it... eventually... :)

Thank you, guys. It's posters like you that make me actually come back to the firestorm these boards can be. :)

And thanks for the Hokey Pokey references. I can see Londo doing it, and it always makes me giggle.

First draft or no, this is some sharp work, ShadeTree. Congrats!

(Though I am very, VERY worried about anyone who might desire to install a joy button in a pet. That sounds like far more information than I need to have about anyone... :) )

I think the thing that Nift is trying to elucidate (and doing a damn fine job) is that 'a million years more advanced' is a bit of an over-simplification. There comes a point where weapons and armour eventually come to a tapering level in advancement. Once you have an energy beam that can negate the...

Ah yes, the reptilian slaves from Centauri space... They do indeed look like raptors (in a way), but they have mostly blunt teeth and they are plant eaters (primarily), though they have developed a taste for meat due to their exposure to Centauri cooking. It is taboo in their culture to kill sentien...

Hey there, Morgan. Excellent questions. The change from the only real source of GROPOS info (the basic book and some supplimental website stuff) comes from the partial text of the book that was never published and my own extrapolation of that work.

I personally think Shonuff has it right on the nose here. There is no gaping plot hole as I see it; the 'no fire will burn there' is foreshadowing and setting up the scene for Valeria's funeral pyre. Pure and simple. It was one of the better cinematic touches, for me, in the whole film...

The part about the Centauri women not normally being able to grow hair is actually taken from a JMS dissertation on the Centauri written shortly after the beginning of the series itself. I went ahead and added the genetic abnomality (which was approved) that allows some women to grow hair to explain...
