Is there any real interest in getting this converted over to D6? I've got all of them downloaded, but I haven't done anything to convert any stats.

This would, of course, come after the Jedi Academy Training Manual, and I would prefer for it to wait until after adventure 10 is out, but I still thought I'd ask if anyone wants to see this.

I'm indifferent about it. But I do agree that you should wait until the finale comes out before any conversions are made.

I read through the outline and this campaign seems really familiar somehow. I just can't put my finger on it. Was it adapted from an old Rebellion era campaign?

As long as we are talking about converting WotC campaigns, I much rather see a converted Living Force campaign guide. I understand WotC doesn't have the adventures posted anymore so this may be difficult.

I'm pretty sure I've converted all the few normal stats found in these PDFs, though maybe they haven't made their way to any of my books yet. Frankly, I don't think there's enough here to get worked up about...

I could do with having the stats converted, if anyone isn't busy? Very Happy

I've also got a friend who is doing a D6 DoD Campaign. I'll see what I can do about putting it into the schedule for the both of you.

I believe I said that before, but I have got pretty much all of the DoF stats converted (apart from the last issue). If you post what you need I can try to throw it together in one file.

I'm just about to start the second adventure, so stats from there would be great.

But apart from that I could do with pretty much everything!

The last one is up!

I can't help converting this one since I'm currently working on my GRE studies. However, there aren't very many stats at all in the adventure.

I read somewhere- I forget where- of a group who did a Dawn of Defiance from the Imperial Point of view. Kind of an anti-Dawn of Defiance.

With the whole of the d20 stuff moving towards it's termination (and a strange consequential renewed energy to finish the conversion guides on my part), my mind keeps wandering back to DoD. Now, Gry, you've mentioned that you have most of the stats for that. Does that include the NPCs that you have along the way?

I've only sort of picked through a couple of the adventures, butI was thinking of looking through the campaign and even making suggestion notes to GMs as to how to transition over to appropriate D6 difficulty levels with D6 skills. However, I've been thinking that to have NPCs, difficulty levels, and whatnot requires a bit more than our theoretical conversions, but would actually require play testing.

What are some other thoughts?

I suspect the best approach might be to look at characters who are "statted" out for both systems and see how they match up. Then use that as the basis for a conversion sheet.

I've found that the old d6-d20 conversion from d20 SW 1st edition works reasonably well for converting from d20 to d6. In fact, probably better than it handles the task it was designed for, since there is no "level fiddling" in d6 to make the skill points match.

Obviously no conversion method is going to be perfect, as the game systems are different, but as all the stuff you guys have converted in the past shows, it's not too hard to get a decent "ballpark" figure.

I would be happy to assemble all of the DoD stuff into one "sourcebook".

I have not developed any stat conversion ability as of yet, but I have appropriate software and could assist in putting it all together.

LMK?

Well... I've Gry has most of the stats, I wouldn't mind doing the rest of the conversion (even the NPCs). I think that this is a good idea, though I think that this will probably be something that we do either in between his work on Scavenger's or after the Unknown Regions is completed.

Cheshire, you mentioned wanting to see the work I've done so here you go:

The biggest challenge that I had was Valin Draco, I couldn't figure out what to do with him...then I found Tremayne's d20 stats and realized that Valin is a slightly more melee-oriented clone him. So I just ditched a lot of Tremayne's "culture", switched around some Force Powers, and gave him and extra 2 pips in Lightsabers. Thanks to you and Gry, most of the hard stuff (the creatures) are already taken care of. Here's what I have for the fourth adventure "Echoes of the Jedi". A lot of the more esoteric features of some of the creatures I'm playing by ear.

Note: I'm taking over this game from another GM (with the condition that we change from Saga to D6), he preferred playing and I've always been more comfortable behind the screen in Star Wars. I gave the players 50 CPs to get them at roughly the same power level that their level 6 characters had, so I tried to balance it with those skill levels in mind.
