See, I'm trying to figure out where that impression ever came from. We don't actually see it but we know Marcus took out at least 30 men in a bar during the episode where Delenn is kidnapped and he barely has a scratch on him. I also can't think of a single main character who dies in combat.
Stracynski has said many times that he used Lord of the Rings as one of major sources of inspiration for the series and I think that even some of the Mongoose Publishing writers would like to see more of that epic feel to B5. Certainly the people who mention that there are evil creatures lurking beneath Nar'Shal that the Dur'Nara help to keep at bay must be thinking of more of a D&D style campaign. I just wish that they'd give us more of a description of what is lurking down there or at least some examples so that GMs can still make up their own stuff but also have a base to work from.
So, out of curiosity, am I the only person who doesn't structure their Babylon 5 campaigns around League sessions and just have everyone voting on political stuff or just trying to run a business and watching fluctuations in the galactic market?
Are there no holy crusades against the forces of darkness? No combat against beings that legends are made of while telling them to "get the hell out of our galaxy"?
So am I the only one playing things that way. What sort of campaigns does everyone run?
