Item description for Babylon 5: Darkness And Light (Babylon 5) by Various (Illustrator)...
There are beings in the universe billions of years older than any of our races. Once, long ago, they walked among the stars like giants, vast, timeless. Taught the younger races, explored beyond the rim, created great empires, but to all things, there is an end. Slowly, over a million years, the First Ones went away. Some passed beyond the stars never to return. Some simply disappeared. Some are still here. Agents of Order and Sowers of Chaos, the Vorlons and Shadows remained behind to guide the younger races. They cloaked themselves in mystery and legend, influencing events on a galactic scale through subtle machinations. The elder races are the grey eminences of Babylon 5, never stepping into the light. Until now. Darkness and Light cover the history of these elder races from the dawn of time until a million years hence, exploring their beliefs, plots, technologies and servitor races. Both sides of this epic and ancient conflict will be fully explored.

Reviews - What do customers think about Babylon 5: Darkness And Light (Babylon 5)?
Wow lots of history. Jan 4, 2008
The information in this book is awesome. There are tons of History on the Vorlons and The Shadows. If you don't want to be spoiled on the History of these first races, and other First Ones, like Lorian's race "The Speakers". There are other races mentioned in the History... and of course there are gaming mechanics for the Vorlons and Shadows, but also for some of the servitor races.. like the Drakh, and Zenier, and a couple others. Some of the planets known for those races as well.
It is a very informative book... highly recommended if you want to game with those two races, or you are just a Babylon 5 fan who wants to know more about these ancient races.
