Has anyone seen a conversion guide for Hackmaster 4th?

For the most part, it would be treated like an AD&D conversion with some more specific things due to HM's "parody."

You might want to start with any more recent "CastleHack" -- unfortunately, the one I found is more the original and only has limited details for conversion:

However, I might be getting different HackMasters confused... so, maybe I am very wrong. I only own the version that had 8 monster manuals... not the newer one.

The new one is 5th and less parody. It is the older one I was looking for. Thanks!

OK, well, I can give you the better link to the now-dead site that used to hold this kind of thing. It included the aforementioned document provided and also a character sheet and some critical hit / fumble rules.

However, this is not a full-blown conversion so if you really want to do HM-C&C, it'd take a little more effort. I am not aware of anything else made known online...

I've not bothered to record stuff I converted as I just did it in game as needed.
