I thought ya'll might get a kick out of this, if you haven't seen it or tried it before.

It's a quick character conversion tool for changing your Star Wars D6 characters into D20 characters.

Behold the pure stupidity of it!

I tried to convert Szardra (that chiss fighter pilot jedi I made in another thread) and discovered that most of her skills were rendered useless in the conversion process.

Things I learned: The Tactics and Command Skills have no equivelant in Star Wars D20! Behold my mighty commander reduced to a dumb grunt who couldn't command a dog to lay down!

Specializations don't exist. So if you have a highly specialized character, good luck converting her!

Your characters can't have more than about 5D+2 in any Skill because that would mean you can't convert it to a first level Star Wars D20 character. And we all know that starting out at higher than first level is a sin. Rolling Eyes

Have fun! Post your results or tell us of your misadventures. Smile

My biggest hangup is the fact that no skill is higher than 5D+2... Sad
Mad

Although I would say that this will make for a very good 1st level character... haha Laughing

I'll have to try making a decent basic character and then convert. Or try one of my less experienced characters.

So basically folks who have been playing with a certain character through numerous adventures where their character has managed to get skills of 6D or better might as well not bother using them unless their going to give them amnesia. Or for that matter GMs shouldn't bother with major NPCs either.

It doesn't adhere to the max of 4 ranks at first level, and you have the possibility of having so many feats starting out. But no matter what, you'll probably end up being toned down. I had a character that was getting up to 12 ranks for skills.

No thanks. Give me a conversion to D6 from D20 any day.
