In the PBEM game everyone has the oppertunity to go their own way, Sometimes I pick up some of the PC's background and work with it. Others, the player posts what they want thier PC to do and things take off. In the f...

Psi Corps Book Cover

I picked up my copy of the Psi Corps book and have starter reading it. Looks great. I do have a question concerning the cover. The front cove of my book has 7 small cone shaped bubbles at the bottom and 2 at the top. Is this an indication that the book has the problem that caused the first printing ...

For those who can't attend a convention, the various modules are normally available for "Home Play". One player who will be the GM orders the module and then runs it at a scheduled time. Sometimes this is done in a local gameing store. To work, you need a lot of volunteers to write the modules. A sm...

I just picked my copy up yesterday and there are sections that just jump out at me which are great but the art work towards the back is almost as bad as my best efforts which are very poor. I mentioned this to a friend as we were playing B5 last night and suggested that her husband who is an artist ...

Yes, my game is open for newbees. It allows for play at your own pace.

Drop me an e-mail and we can chat.

Be warned, it's more like life. Not a single module/adventure.

My game is more like life. People (PCs) enter and then go off on their own or meet other PCs and do their own things. I have some story arcs that your PC might become involved in or not. One of the posters here has a PC with two personalities, another is a Markeb female who has a small shop in the Z...

Teep reactions to Shadows

I seem to recall an episode where Talia passed close to Mordin and had a bad reaction from being so close to the Shadows. Most likely season 2 or 3. We have Technomages and Shadowsouled both having a reaction detailed in the rules when they get close to teeps or if they attack teeps. Is there anythi...

LOS = Line of Sight The B5 system (I'm assuming you have read it), has telepathic abilities that have a range beyond LOS, thus suggesting that you DON'T have to see your target to necessarily affect them. I understand LOS. What I didn't understand and still don't is your response to my statement. I...

I believe there is a feat that allows a teep to affect through wall but I don't have my book here.

If you can't affect them beyond LOS what would be the point in ranges beyond LOS?

I've never read the Jovian Chronicles so I can't comment on it.

B5 is rich with intrigue and has many alien races. Mongoose has done a great job of providing a tremendous amount of information.

One class that I had expected to find in the first book that was missing was the Ranger class. Thay have included it in one of the season books and the Rangers are going to have their own book. The rest are pretty much what you'd expect, Telepath, Soldier, Diplomat, Agent and Scientist. That is not ...
