How about a TOC?

01 - Introduction
02 - Shipbuilding in the Galaxy
03 - Bare Hulls
04 - Outfitting the Essentials
05 - Arming your Vessel
06 - Finishing Touches
07 - Classified

The books details and gives you not only the means to produce ships, but also to modify them, as well as where they are built, the facilities needed, how long it takes, how difficult it is, what it costs etc.. This is an fantastic resource for anyone wanting to buld or create variants or reverse engineer existing 2e ships etc.. and covers all the techs for the known races.

Firstly, thank you.

Secondly, you won't need to reverse engineer any of the 2nd Ed ships...Ships of the Galaxy is scheduled to come out at the same time and TOTALLY has that covered.

(Although Mark totally knew that already...this was more for general consumption. :) )

Given it has a release date of May 29th, seems unlikely.

Not that I'd mind being proven wrong in this case :lol:

TOC? I am sorry, but I am not quite sure that book is this. Can you please specify?

I just picked up theRPG, and the whole system's knocking me on my butt.. Just ... wow. I finally get the bloody Influence rules, too. Anyway, will the ship building books also be OGL?

I'm pretty sure all B5 2E books will be OGL, it would be silly for future 2E books not to be.

Or at least they won't need the PHB.
