  1. Go you! This sounds like lots of fun. How will you work Magic in 5150? A form of ranged attack?

    1. I'm not entirely sure yet. I'm going to use the alien abilities (the Razors seem to have some type of "magic") and otherwise I'll use the goal system...

  2. Can't wait to read it! I've to run my next 5150:NB adventure...

  3. Realy looking forward to a Bet Rep on this. I've never seen 5150 NB play. If I like it, I'll be adding it to the birthday list.
