So I've done a few conversions. I did a quick and dirty Shadowrun-to-SWN on this blog a year or two ago. I have an almost-playable RIFTS-to-AD&D sitting on my hard drive, and now I've got this bug to create a WoD Hearbreakerclone.
I think I've mentioned this before, but there are some great games out there that have rule systems I either don't like or don't have the patience to learn.
While I am on the subject of rebuilds and such, this is my list of pipe dream conversions that I will never get around to, but sort of hope someone else would. Presented in no particular order:
*In Nomine- I'd like to see this converted to World of Darkness or FUDGE.
*Heavy Gear- Stars Without Number
*Alternity- Stars Without Number (The races, etc.)
*Gear Krieg- Savage Worlds
*Jovian Chronicles- SWN
*Tribe 8- Savage Worlds or FUDGE
*Fireborn- World of Darkness
*Dragon Star- Pathfinder (believe it or not). I guess you could also do it with D&D/SWN
*Star Frontiers- SWN!
*Nightbane/Nightspawn- World of Darkness
My WoD thingie is underway as a series of scratchings on my note pad. (Like, a real, dead-tree-paper note pad) Right now I'm trying to decide which bits of the OWoD mechanics I like and which on the NWoD mechanics I like. The frustrating part is that both systems having things I like and things that really get on my nerves. The trick will be coming to a happy medium between them.... but that's another post for another time.
