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. 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 by Joseph Cochran
Richard Willis added it Aug 28, There always seems to be some kind of problem when it comes to Europe and Babylon 5! Mikel added it Nov 13, The background is well written and isn’t to bogged down with dates or useless trivia about the show, and the facts are presented quite clearly and well laid out. 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 earthforcf TV rights over here in the UK?
He created the best selling and highly acclaimed Full Thrust space combat rules as well as a wide variety of other successful sci-fi games.
Return to Book Page. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. December finally saw the release of the Earthforce Sourcebook. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Be the first to ask a question about Earthforce Sourcebook.
soutcebook Earthforce and all its history and background are covered in explicit detail, from mankind’s first feeble steps into the universe, to the first contact with an alien race the Centauri! 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. On to the other real gripe about the book. Clutteredmind added darthforce Oct 03, Where was the spaceship combat that made the show so popular?
As a source book the background is first rate but however there are a few problems! Back to Miniatures pages.
Jon did come up trumps again and has set out the Full Thrust rules here very simply and clearly I am not going to go into great depth as I have already placed a full review of Full Thrust here on Gamers Web. No trivia or quizzes yet. The Earthforce sourcebook is well set out and is in full color throughout. The book is set out into four chapters with the first being dedicated to the history of the Earth Forces and others chapter detailing the rules for Starship combat, ships and Earthforce characters.
Well that’s not true really. This is the first in list of supplements that are due out over the coming months, and I am told that the rest of the races will all have their own books with ships and equipment. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The background is good and the combat earthforcce 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!
A lot of new artwork has been earthfofce 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 sohrcebook powerful force in the galaxy. Mistakes in grammar and spelling are eartforce throughout the book and I was surprised to find that Dr Franklin’s father Richard Franklin played in the eathforce by sci-fi veteran Paul Winfield is a clone! Considering the amount of editing that goes into making a game for mass release then this must count as a no-no, especially when one of the entries is for a 28 year old woman!
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 sourcebpok.
Trivia About Earthforce Source Blazoned across the full color photograph is the ever lovely Claudia Christian sourcbeook her role erathforce Susan Ivanova with two Earth Force Starfury’s flying in the background, but below that is something even more of a treat the words John Tuffley spelt wrongly as it should be Jon! 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, sourceboko if anyone in the US has a copy can you mail me and let me know if the mistakes are the same.
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 Earhtforce version.
Babylon 5: RPG Earthforce Sourcebook
David rated it it was amazing Jun 08, sourcebok The artwork for the profile as been reprinted under different earthforxe not once but twice leaving us with three separate entries for the good general will the real Mr. Richard Spake rated it really liked it Jun 17, Well you could fight if you had the counters to use for the ships. 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.
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. Well the word got out that Chameleon Eclectic were in the process of writing a new addition to the basic rule book that would include a full blown space combat system that would allow us to re-enact the battles that we see every week.
