Earthforce Sourcebook | RPG Item | RPGGeek
The background is well written and isn’t to bogged down with dates or useless trivia about the ezrthforce, and the facts are presented quite clearly and well laid out.
Scott added it Jul 09, No trivia or quizzes yet. December finally saw the release of the Earthforce Farthforce. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. If you are reading this and live in the UK wait till the corrected book comes out before making a decision as you wont get a refund, and if anyone in the US has a copy can you mail me and let me know if the mistakes are the same.
Refresh and try again. Rchertkow added it Dec 29, If the show airs in the US in September we get it almost a year later, and as for licensing of official B5 products, well lets just say that we need to get our act together.
Apart from the omission of the counters and the other mistake, the Earthforce sourcebook is a really good read and will become a useful tool to gamesmasters and fans of the show everywhere. The book is set out into four chapters with the siurcebook being dedicated to the history of the Earth Forces and others chapter detailing the rules for Starship combat, ships and Earthforce characters.
I telephoned the UK distributors for the game and was informed that it was a mistake at the printers and that it would be rectified in later prints.
I would love to say that this book fulfilled all of my expectations but that wouldn’t be quite right. Mikel added it Nov 13, To be completely honest with you, I thought that perhaps my copy of the system had been opened in the store I bought it from and that the sheets of card stock counters for the combat system had simply fallen out. Richard Spake rated it really liked it Jun 17, From the moment you pick up the book and look at the cover it looks as if you’re in for a real treat and that the long wait was worth it.
Phil rated it it was ok Mar 25, Coming along late again a major delay with the UK printers and last minute changes! Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. It wasn’t until I spoke to a friend of mine who got the game before me that I found out that he had no counters either. Franklin please stand up! A lot of new artwork has been created for the game and it takes as the title suggests an in-depth look at the history and role of the Earthforce and way that the Alliance has grown to become a powerful force in the galaxy.
On to the other real gripe about the book.
I like a lot of fans of the hit TV series waited anxiously for the release of the official B5 roleplaying game, only to find it dogged by licensing laws which meant almost a five month wait after its US launch something to do with the TV rights over here in the UK? The artwork for the profile as been reprinted under different names not once but twice leaving us with three separate entries for the good general will the real Mr. He created the best selling and sourcenook acclaimed Full Thrust space combat rules as well as a wide variety of other successful sci-fi games.
Well that’s earthfore true really. Books by Joseph Cochran.
Jason rated it it was ok Feb 01, Patrick rated it really liked it Nov 12, As I mentioned you get a very cool combat system to use in the roleplaying game and it allows you to fight combats between a wide variety of space craft from the Earth Alliance, Narn Regime, Centauri Republic and the Minbari.
Return to Book Page. Well no mention of compensation was forthcoming and I have emailed Chameleon Eclectic on several occasions now and still have had no reply? For those of you who don’t recognise the name, Jon Tuffley is the owner and creator of Ground Zero Games and perhaps one of the best sci-fi games designers in the business.
Earthforce Sourcebook (Babylon Project RPG)
Here was something I was really looking forward to getting stuck into, having spoken to Jon earlier in the year 97 at Euro Gen Con and got the low down on the system. The artwork is excellent and even if you’re not a gamer you could find a lot about the shows history by reading the book and looking at the way the ships have developed over the years.
Clutteredmind earthflrce it Oct 03, Overall a good earthfoce let down by silly mistakes that could have been avoided. The background is good eartbforce the combat system a very much simplified version of Full Thrust is first rate, but there are a few problems that really should have been caught before the book was sent to the printers!

Shannon Lewis rated it liked it Mar 10, Pam Wesy added it Jun 08, Well the day came and the Babylon Project was released, to a major out cry from many gamers.
I can only speak about the UK version of the book as I haven’t seen the US version yet and I am not sure if the mistakes are the same as in the UK version. David rated it it was amazing Jun 08,
