Post by Rigon »

I've finished my DS adaptation. It's 54 pages (20 or so of new spells). Any interested, PM your email and I'll send it out.

We really need a Castles & Crusades wiki for all the fan created material.

No, I am not volunteering.

There was the C&C Players Site that had fan created material, but I don't think it's been updated in a long time.

I think you did a great job with the conversion; you really nailed the Dark Sun flavor. I like your psionic system (The Book of the Mind), I like how you separated the cleric spells by element, and I like how you did the defiler's experience advancement (I was assuming that you'd have separate XP tables, I didn't think of just giving the defiler a bump on the experience they earn- easier that way).

I'm assuming that you are using one of the multi-class/dual class systems, and I'm also assuming that you are keeping the 10th level spells and transformations to advanced beings (dragons, avangions, elementals, and spirits of the land).

I think you did a great job with the C&C Dark Sun adaptation. If I ever get a chance to run DS again, I'll be doing so with your work.

Probably not. I've never had PCs last that long.

I'd love a copy as well.

P.S.: did you see that WotC is re-releasing Dark Sun in 2010 as their new campaign world for 4e.

Big fan of your Book of the Mind. I can't wait to see what you did with some of the DS monsters, elemental spells, etc. I was actually kinda bummed to see a 4E conversion on the way. I'm joining the Crusade and jumping on the C&C bandwagon instead.

Are you stopping with the first box set or using any of the DS snd box stuff?

Yeah, I decided for ease I would only do the original box set. Everything is there to expand on if someone wants to.
