Babylon 5 Roleplaying Game and Fact Book: Signs and Portents
"It was the dawn of the Third Age of Mankind, ten years after the Earth-Minbari War. The Babylon Project was a dream given form. Its goal - to prevent another war by creating a place where humans and aliens could work out their differences peacefully. It is a port of call, a home away from home for diplomats, hustlers, entrepreneurs and wanderers.
Humans and aliens wrapped in two million, five hundred thousand tons of spinning metal, all alone in the night. It can be a dangerous place but it is our last, best hope for peace. This is the story of the last of the Babylon stations.
The year is 2258. The name of the place is Babylon 5.


Featuring the space station that changed the destiny of an entire galaxy, this all new roleplaying game allows players to take the role of characters on board the Babylon 5 station and travel to the many stars and planets seen in the award-winning television series.

Minbari Federation Fact Book
"Of all the races in the universe of Babylon 5, none save perhaps the Vorlons are more enigmatic and mysterious than the Minbari. Possessing a culture steeped in tradition and dogma, the Minbari closely resemble humans but are very evidently not human. They are stronger, faster, and possess acute senses that humanity can only begin to understand.
They are deeply spiritual but feel no need to share or even explain their beliefs to others. They gave great respect for their elders and accept the rule of a single council even on worlds far from their own territory. Their ways are unfathomable, even to some of their own kind, yet none dare question their motives. At least, none dare question them openly.
This book will detail the Minbari Federation in its entirety. From the homeworld of Minbar to its colonoics, culture, religious practices and military every part of the Federation can be found in these pages.

Narn Regime Fact Book
"It has been said that to defeat the monster, one must become it. There can be no greater example of this than the metamorphosis of the Narn into what they have become. There is, however, an inner peace left within them that not even a hundred years of slavery and warfare can extinguish or destroy. The Narn are a slucly in contrasts. They are a brutal, savage race capable of much bloodshed and violence, but they are also inherently spiritual and given to lengthy philosophical debates and contemplative reflection.
When the final day of the Narn dawns, their destiny will be only what they make it. No one else will ever shape the future of the Narn again. Whether they fall into darkness, consumed by their own hatred, or rise above their own past to find a new fate among the stars, they will do so through the strength or weakness of their own character.

League of Non-Aligned Worlds Fact Book
"In the world of Babylon 5, perhaps no single example of the fractious yet enduring concept of unity can be found than the League of Non-Aligned Worlds - several very different, very alien groups brought together by the universal languages of need and fear. United in their desire to have more power than they could individually wield, the League of Non-Aligned Worlds collectively represent more ships, more guns and more temporal power than any of the 'major' governments of the galaxy can claim. Even the Minbari Federation would be hard-pressed to deal with the enmity of the entire League.

The Zocalo
"The Zocalo is a teeming marketplace set at the heart of Babylon 5. Stall holders and shopkeepers ply their trade to thousands of workers and tourists as they pass through the centre of the huge spacestation. And all manner of goods, both mundane and fantastical, can be had. It is a cosmopolitan mix of races and cultures, built out of the need for progress and understanding, but beneath this fagade of co-operation beats a black heart. A seedy black market of illicit goods and services can be had for those who know where to look.

Inside You Will Find
Equipment & Weapons - A plethora of gadgets and gizmos, ranging from the ridiculous to the sublime. Most items debut here, although a careful viewer will recognise them, or at least their implied presence, from the show.
Services - Presents the cost for various services, ranging from the fees for maintaining a potted plant in your room to
renting a starcruiser or putting on a fireworks display.
Creating Items - A complete system is presented for creating unusual and unique artefacts, some of organic technology, others simply built using theories of technology radically different from anything currently in operation.
Trade - In addition to presenting long equipment of kit this book also delves into the world of galactic trade. It starts this
exploration in the Zocalo itself.
Black Markets - The Zocalo also explores the black markets on Babylon 5. A knowledgeable shopper can find anything from fake identification cards to enough guns to supply an army."

The Psi Corps
The text has scattered notes by Byron, to tell the truth in the face of Psi Corps propaganda. A fun read.
-Wayne


"Telepathy is fundamentally communication - a bridging of thoughts, a direct link between minds. Civilisation is built on communication; telepathy is the most recent link in a chain that began with cave paintings, primitive grunts and gestures. Each new medium of communication brings upheaval in society. The printing press, the telephone, tachyon transmission and the rest all wrought change, engendered fear and confusion before they were understood and seen by society as necessary steps in evolution.
The Psi Corps is a bridge to the future. As the past century has shown, the changes needed to assimilate telepathy into human society are difficult and painful. The Psi Corps holds telepathy in trust, protecting it from abuse and finding the best possible path for it. It is a necessary step as we take our place in the galaxy."

The Rangers
"Of all the groups, secret societies and allegiances created in the Babylon 5 setting, the most memorable and influential is arguably the Anla'shok. The Rangers are an intriguing organisation best defined not as what they are but as what they are not. The Rangers are the guardians at the gate, the shadows against the shadows. They are not warriors on any battlefield but the hidden ones of back alleys on distant worlds and the corrupt corridors of traitorous powers. This sourcebook both removes some of the mystery from the Anla'shok and adds several new layers of 'grey area' for Games Masters to use in their campaigns. It greatly expands the character options for Rangers, both in the hands of Players and as characters they encounter during the course of a campaign.

Inside You Will Find

The full history of the Anla'shok, from their founding a millenium ago to the changes brought about by the formation of the Interstellar Alliance, along with guidelines for professional behaviour, how to proceed during missions and what procedures a well-trained Ranger should take when dealing with unknown lifeforms, interfering government officials and even the most dangerous of combat situations.

The various tools and weapons available to the Rangers for use in the field, from the ubiquitous denn'bok to the multiple forms of the White Star combat vessel at their command, including a walkthrough of a standard White Star cruiser from aft docking bay to its front weapons array.

Details of important sites of the Anla'shok; Tuzanor, City of Sorrows, the ruined planet of Kaddora and the mysterious Anla'shok caches
that Rangers find in the most unlikely of places.

This book is also filled with information about how to play Rangers as characters, including new prestige classes, the Ranger as a full character class and new feats and options for members of the Anla'shok to take during play. Gamemastering tips are given on how to incorporate the Anla'shok into existing games or create a new campaign centred on an Anla'shok group."

Mars is the most populous planet in the Solar System apart from Earth and the most capable of sustaining itself without outside support.

GROPOS troopers have fought on a hundred alien battlefields to keep humanity safe. Starfuries patrol the space above every world from Ceti Gamma to Sinzar. As the Alliance grows and the alien races grow more jealous of humanity, the need for military strength grows ever greater.

Darkness and Light - The Vorlon & Shadow Fact Book
"'There are beings in the universe billions of years older than either of our races. Once, long ago, they walked among the stars like giants, vast, timeless. Taught the Younger Races, explored beyond the Rim, created great empires, but to all things, there is an end. Slowly, over a million years, the First Ones went away. Some passed beyond the stars never to return. Some simply disappeared.'
'But not all of the First Ones have gone away.'


Intelligent life is ancient in this universe. Before the Earth and the Sun congealed out of space dust, there were races travelling between the stars in shining ships. Living beings heard the echoes of the Big Bang reverberate off the cosmic spheres. Alien voices sang as the stars of this galaxy were born. These beings eventually found life developing on a hundred worlds. Not wanting to be alone, they nurtured this burgeoning life. Slowly, over millennia, more sentient beings evolved and took their first steps towards the stars.
These races would become the Vorlons and the Shadows. Unfathomable years later, they would be as gods to the Younger Races. One embodies the principle of chaos. The other purports the rule of order. Darkness and Light, each as terrible and powerful as the other, locked in an aeon-old struggle for dominance of the galaxy.

Inside You Will Find
History & Technology: Full histories of both races, told from both sides of the moral divide, and the fantastic details of their technological advances - and how they work.

Merchants, Traders & Raiders
"'There is nothing finer than setting eyes on so many tons of spinning metal, thousands of people and miles of electronics held together by millions of credits. It is beautiful.'

A wise person once said, 'Money is the root of all evil'. There is very little that has not or will not be done for money. Be it dollars, credits, ducats, toka or ook'ar'a... greed sees no difference. The lifeblood of trade lies in the worth of currency and few would argue against its greatness. While some understand just how powerful the application of funds can be, traders feel its weight like no other.
The Babylon 5 universe is filled with starship battles and riots that permeate the galaxy. Yet not all plots and schemes are enforced from behind a firing console or powered-up PPG. Most are fought with credits and politics, boycotts and embargoes. Wars of this kind can be fought without a single shot being fired but still crush entire populations in their wake. A merciless master of trading warfare controls thousands, making pawns of all others.
Whether you wish to escort priceless shipments to a safe harbour or attack them for fun and profit, this book is your invaluable key to success! Whether used for plot support or reference material, Babylon 5: Merchants, Traders & Raiders embroils Babylon 5 fans in the dangerous world of trade plots and piracy.
