apart from the rulebook which one of the mongoose B5 supplements is your best and why?
Hmmm, that's a toughie. For me, it's the Minbari Federation Factbook, followed very closely by the EarthForce one. The Minbari book didn't have as much material on Valen as I might have liked (apart from painting him as a mythical figure), but I suppose the information from the 'In Valen's Name' comic series and the To Dream In The City of Sorrows will be expanded upon in the Ranger book. A nice big chapter on Valen might be nice...
The stuff on Minbari worlds is great to see, and the way the maps of the two Minbari cities (even though for some reason I'm convinced that the 'Cathedral' as it is called by the Rangers, is in Tuzanor not Yedor) are presented is really useful. The Warrior Caste fighting styles are excellent, and it is nice to see some thought has gone into the Minbari history. The stuff about the Vorlons grooming the Minbari throughout so much of their history was a really good read. The only things I thought the book missed was a little bit more information on the clans within the Religious Caste (like within the Warrior Caste) and a ship chart. But, that's really just griping. :wink:
Honourable mention to the main rulebook itself. The amount of B5 related information, about the station itself and pulled together in one place, is impressive.
