S&P B5 Legacy of War

Postby Sedric the Hero » Mon Feb 02, 2009 4:55 am

I see Signs & Portents is running a 14 part Babylon campaign in it called 'Legacy of War'. I'm disappointed to see it using the Traveller rules rather than the 2nd edition B5 rules (i am unfamiliar w/these other rules and i hate converting from a new system). Anyone on here running this?

I plan to once I get the B5 book. Never played traveller before but I got the corebook just for B5.
Mind if it hadn't had B5 converted I would have got traveller for Judge Dredd.

You should buy it though, a good system that looks like it will be fun to play.

I wonder whether the whole thing will be published?

It's a 14 part series based on B5, being published one part each month. Part 1 was last December. That puts part 14 in the February 2010 issue of S&P.

But the B5 licence expires at the end of June 2009...

Traveller is fairly straight forward and easy to learn and B5 translates well to these rules.

If you *really* wanted to run it for D20, you could do will minimal effort. I've kept rule references down to a minimum. Any skill checks that a required are pretty obvious to seasoned D20 players, so the only thing you would really have to do is convert the NPC stats.

I'm doing it via e-mail on our Yahoo group.

In process of hiring the crew. Captain is hired. She's hiring an engineer now.
