The Babylon 5 Roleplaying Game is a role-playing game published by Mongoose Publishing in 2003.


The Babylon 5 Roleplaying Game is based on the Babylon 5 TV series. The game's mechanic is the d20 System published by Wizards of the Coast with character classes and races specific to the setting. Characters have a low number of hit points meaning that they can die very easily, in keeping with the show.[1]

Publication history[edit]

The Babylon 5 Roleplaying Game was published by Mongoose Publishing in 2003. A second edition of the core rules was published in 2006 using the WotC Open Game License.[2] In 2008 Mongoose published Universe of Babylon 5, a set of rules allowing the game to use Mongoose's edition of Traveller as its RPG engine instead of the d20 System.[3]
