Postby Terrible Tim » Thu Aug 09, 2007 5:20 am

Is there a (offical) B5 universe map? I would like to see where the different racial boarders are.

There is a supplement for the B5 RPG that focuses just on the B5 Galaxy...take a look at this link
http://www.mongoosepublishing.com/home/ ... sSeries=11

There should be a map in it, theres one on the cover lol...been thinking about picking it up just to see whats in it. Anyone ever take a look at it? Is it worth the cost?

That looks perfect. Is there a printable picture file available? I might have to get this book in the near future.

There used to be a map free to download but they seemed to have removed the free downloads from 1st edition books. I still have it at home I think, could upload it for you when i come back from work.

I have a copy of the B5 system map that Mongoose put up as a download with the first edition of the RPG. Email me and I'll send it to you.

This map actually does not really show any galaxy, but the mass distributen throughout the universe, as far as I can tell.

Thanks

Really handy to have, now all I need is an A1 printer!

Just looking at it inspires all sorts of campaign ideas, as you can tell which systems are going to be the most important in any particular war. I feel a muse in the air.....

Technically that map does show the Milky Way Galaxy, as well as the odd by-itself galaxy (such as M31 and the LMC) if you look carefully enough...

Hmmm. That map certainly makes the Akdor thingie makes sense(why EA was in such a rush). It WAS in very good strategical position in case EA would get drawn in conflict.

Only thing I can't explain: The troops were supposed to be(officially) relief troops for IO? B5 on Epsilon Eridani? Okay from where the heck those troops were coming then? Assuming they came from EA controlled space any movement toward B5 would be basicly AWAY from Io...

Wonder who drew that map? Didn't think that one certainly!

Would make more sense if the EA space would continue to quadrant 15. That way B5 could be viable route toward Io(even if still not even close to direct line).
