Savaged TSR 80's properties?

#1 Postby The Warlord » Sat Oct 25, 2008 10:43 pm

I've gotten the bug to go back and buy games of my youth, but naturally using them with SW.

I'm curious if anyone is aware of conversions for the following:

Star Frontiers
Gamma World
Buck Rogers

Dark Sun (not 80's but cool)

Try savageheroes.com.

I know they have a Gamma World conversion, at least.

I'm running a Savaged XXVc game at the moment, but nothing's really written up, if you know what I mean.

I've just done a few Gennie and Equipment conversions and that's it.

In an old issue of Shark Bytes, there was a Star Frontiers conversion. That might work for you.

Cool!
Lets us know how the XXVc game gets on.

For some reason, I have a heck of a time figuring out what the contents are. I suppose I need to register. Anyway, know which issue has the Star Frontiers stuff?

There's the Sharkbytes Star Frontiers stuff, but there used to be another fan conversion of Star Frontiers as well. I'll have to see if I still have the file.

When I first saw this thread, I thought you wanted to Savage some old properties from the Radio Shack/Tandy TRS-80 home computer (circa 1977). :)

Hmm. Could it be the terrible organization of the site, perhaps? :wink:

The Shark Bytes Topical Index should help. It's stored under Downloads > Errata & FAQ, but this link will get it for you direct.

Did somebody mention the Trash-80? I never owned one, but my friends who had Commodore's, or Apple's were well aware of the less-than-stellar Tandy's. hehe

I found a conversion of Crash on Volturnus online, but I can't remember where.

Its on CmdrCody_2000's page. There is a problem with his new page, though. He forgot to put the links to the pdf files on the page. He has the file name, just no linking URLs. So you have to type: http://www.geocities.com/cmdrcody_2000/pdf/ and then the file name that is listed.

He has quite a bit of Star Frontiers stuff, some Gamma World items, and a bit of Traveller, Thudarr the Barbarian, and Battlestar Galactica stuff, too.
