Has anyone out there starting converting gear from FFG to D6?

Oh, I have a flash drive where I'd started working on one of their books. I got overwhelmed with real life stuff before finishing. I'll see what I've got.

I don't have the drive on hand, so feel free to give this a bump in a day or two if things have gotten away from me again, just to make sure that I have a reminder.

I have all but the last 2 or 3 books converted. Have not bothered with the adventures except for Escape From Mos Shutta and Long Arm of the Hurt.

I know that it was a malapropism in that last post, but I'm going to pretend it wasn't. It just sounds more awesome that way.

Anyhoo... do you have all the stats compiled in a single document? And if so, do you think you'll be sharing them, or are you waiting to see if you can get someone to format them really pretty for you?

At this time none of the books has gone through the editing stage. They are complete rips of the books with d6 stats and game mechanics converted to d6 mechanics. It has been several months since I looked at them and its a project I should get back into.

As for releasing to the general public. I probably will not be releasing it in its current form. It is one thing to convert a couple of things its a whole different thing to "lift" everything.

I will probably get around to release books similar in format to the Saga Conversion books. Will have to see.

Yeah, a full rip is something I'd be hesitant to release, so I totally get you there.

Maybe I could help in forming this book of converted items. I have started on armor since d6 is very limited in that regard. I had trouble finding the converted items on your page. I am just finding your game sessions.

Well as I said earlier I have not made the conversions available. Compiling them is another option. My game sessions?

Okay this is what is currently converted: Dangerous Covenants, Enter the Unknown, Far Horizons, Fly Casual, Lords of Nal Hutta and Suns of Fortune.

Stay on Target is in the process of being converted. I have not even started with Desperate Allies.

Escape from Mos Shuuta and Long Arm of the Hut are also converted.

Man, I've been so bogged down I haven't been able to even READ my copies of the FFG books beyond Far Horizons.

Out of interest, has anyone came up for stats for the VT-49 Decimator vehicle that appears in the Star Wars X-Wing miniatures game?

I think these ships would make for interesting opponents against my player's YT-1300 and a nice change from TIEs.

As it stands, I'm pretty much for ripping off YT-1300 stats so that they match up well in combat but if something better exists I'd love to see it!

Cheers!

The YT-1300 is stock in the core D6 SWRPG book.

The Decimator was first stated out in i think it was Saga's starships of the galaxy or the rebellion era guide from the same version.

Nice! This was 2015. Do you have all these stat conversions compiled into a document or documents?
