New to the B5 game. What to buy?


I am pretty new to the B5 game.

Which are the best books to buy?

I have a budget for 4-5 books.


If it was me I would go for the main rulebook, The Zocalo, Galactic Guide, the Season 2 book and then one random book of your choosing. :)
I would go for the core rulebook, the sourcebooks on the Minbarri, Centauri, Narn, Earth Alliance, and the League of Non-Aligned Worlds. That should give you lots of material to play with.
I'd say pocket core book (saves cash), Galactic guide, and League book for more POC race options, plus maybe Zocalo and a storyline campaign ish thing like the previously mentioned second season book or maybe a standalone adventure like Athena Strain to start things off.
Assuming here that you know the TV show anyway, my recommendation is the B5 rulebook and the four main races books (EA, Minari, Narn and Centauri).
