The Fiery Trial
Author: Bruce Graw -- Published: Jun 2003 -- Format: Paperback
Amazon Amazon.com Price: $24.95 -- In stock soon (Order now to reserve a copy)
Click for larger image DESCRIPTION:
Fiery Trial is more than just a few scenario modules thrown together. It is designed to act as the centrepiece of an epic campaign—an entire story arc the Games Master can use either on its own or alongside other arcs of his own creation. Between the various modules, months may pass before the players start the next scenario. In many cases, the players may not even be aware that any given module is part of the same series, until they discover a clue that ties things together. Frequently this revelation only occurs at the end of a module, providing an excellent cap to an evening.s gaming. The payoff moment, as each player suddenly realises what they have been a part of, is one of the most rewarding facets of the Babylon 5 roleplaying game.

S2: The Coming of Shadows
Author: Matthew Sprange & August Hahn -- Published: Aug 2003 -- Format: Paperback
Amazon Amazon.com Price: $24.95 -- Usually ships in 24 hours
Click for larger image DESCRIPTION:
The Coming of Shadows is a sourcebook for the Babylon 5 roleplaying game, exploring in detail the personalities and events of 2259. Used in conjunction with Chapter 8 of the main rulebook, Signs and Portents, Games Masters can now accurately extend their campaigns and story arcs beyond 2258 to include the dramatic galaxy-shaking events detailed here.

Every episode of the second season of the Babylon 5 television show is fully covered in The Coming of Shadows, along with numerous scenario and campaign hooks that will make it easy to integrate them with ongoing story arcs already unfolding in current games. As described in Chapter 9 of the main rulebook, Campaigns on Babylon 5, players can witness or even become directly involved in these events, engaging in story arcs of their own that may put them at the centre of the galaxy alongside the heroes of the television show. This sourcebook also includes the main personalities found on board Babylon 5, updated from those that appeared in the main rulebook in 2258, as well as featuring a few new faces. New rules additions, equipment and vehicles are also featured, expanding the Babylon 5 roleplaying game no matter where or when the Games Master chooses to set his story arcs and campaigns.

The year 2258 set the scene for players new to the Babylon 5 roleplaying game. The Coming of Shadows will elevate games to new levels of passion and excitement as players begin to discover just who the real powers in the galaxy are...

The Minbari Federation Fact Book
Author: August Hahn -- Published: Oct 2003 -- Format: Paperback
Amazon Amazon.com Price: $34.95 -- Usually ships in 24 hours
Click for larger image DESCRIPTION:
What little is known to other races about the Minbari is a tantalizing assortment of minor facts that hint at something deeper but reveal very little of it. The Minbari are physically strong and quite languid in their movements. They have no hair on their heads or bodies, though facial hair sometimes occurs in older males. The back part of their skulls extends through their epidermis into a bone crest that adorns and protects the back of their heads. Patterns of color, generally a pale blue, cover the scalp and usually run from the brow all the way back to this skeletal ridge. As with human fingerprints, no two skull crests or scalp patterns are exactly alike and seem to be as identifying a mark among Minbari as their own faces.
