To say I'm excited is an understatement. 140 downloads in 11 hours of the Swords & Wizardry Continual Light "Pre-Release" rules is simply awesome!
Its a pre-release because I've asked the community to give it a read through and let me know of any corrections needed or omissions there may be. I'm hoping to have a "final" copy ready to be uploaded to OBS this weekend. POD is planned. Pricing will be PWYW in either case.
Original post with "Change Log"
I've included the following in the current working document for those (like me) that wish to use Swords & Wizardry Complete resources with Swords & Wizardry Continual Light:
CONVERTING SWORDS & WIZARDRY COMPLETE RESOURCES TO SWORDS & WIZARDRY CONTINUAL LIGHT
There is a large amount of resources for Swords & Wizardry, the bulk of which is written for Swords & Wizardry Complete (SWC). The good news is, converting from SWC to SWCL is a snap if you follow these basic guidelines.
Remember that SWCL defaults to a d6 for HD and basic weapon damage whereas SWC defaults to a d8. Therefore, do the following:
Hit Dice / Hit Points - Decrease HP of SWC monsters by 1 HP per HD in published adventures.
Damage Rolls / Dice Conversion - Use the following Chart:
SWC Dice SWCL Dice
Armor Class (AC) - remains unchanged.
Converting the 1d4 and 1d3 looks a little odd. There seems to be a more logical progression using 1d3 and 1d6-2 respectively, flipping the values.ReplyDelete
math made sense at 2 AM ;)Delete
1d3 and 1d3-1 now respectively
Isn't 1d3-1 a coin flip?Delete
And anyone interested in the art used can find it on rpgnow by looking up my name,and you can get all of my art in that charity bundleReplyDelete
actually, a coin flip would avg 1.5, this averages 1.3 - but the coin flip would be easier ;)ReplyDelete
