Reloaded TO Classic Conversion Rules?

#1 Postby Amdramnar » Tue Aug 28, 2012 2:42 pm

I always prefered the Classic rules over the Savage World rules not to mention I have EVERY book from classic Deadlands, Hell on Earth, and Lost Colony.

I find plenty of Classic to Reloaded conversion posts but so far none the other way. With the new Reloaded line and stuff comming out for that, I may be interested in converting characters, monsters, etc back to the classic versions.

If you have all the books, then it's simple; just use the stats for the creature listed in the Classic book for 97% of the stuff. Walkin' Dead are Walkin' Dead.

For anything else, those other 97% should give a pretty good idea how to convert over. The primary thing would be any special abilities, but there's likely something similar in Classic somewhere to work from.

If running an adventure, I might keep an eye out for opposition numbers that might be hard to handle in Classic and reduce them.

What I'm interested in doing is taking some of the unique material, like scrounging/money and the encounter tables and using them in Classic. I'm also interested in looking at Guts, since I agree with Reloaded about people being used to all of the crazy stuff and magic.

I've also been looking at a subset of Junker rules for making quick devices (with the full rules being for that labored creation). I was looking at this independantly of Reloaded, but I may look to it for inspiration.
