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.
I haven't explored the post-apocalypse genre that often, so this is a big deal to me. I want to get deep in there and do it right, coming up with weird, outlandish things in a world devastated by cataclysmic forces. PCs will be eating crock-rat and scorpion-skunk roadkill, drinking their own piss, giving hand jobs for precious gasoline, and pretending to worship the glowing faces of a malevolent and insane god that floats somewhere in the yellow smog of the forbidden zone. Not everyone will survive. In fact, some won't even want to. That's just the way things are now.
There are already a lot of cool post-apocalyptic RPGs out there. Gamma Turquoise: Santa Fe Starport will focus on making your after-the-bomb gaming experience more awesome. I strive to hit that sweet spot between rules-light and rules-non-existent, where flavor, story, ideas, artwork, scenario seeds, and random tables dominate. Indeed, this book will have utility far beyond the scenario presented. You'll want to give this to your grand-kids when they go off adventuring in post-apocalyptic lands.
I provide you with the finest tools so that YOU can create your own irradiated landscape full of mutated skeezoid scum dogs (tentacled, of course). But this won't be a lame outline that you have to flesh out. No, you're in good hands - Venger's warlock hands!
