Hello all, I cant seem to find a conversation guide online for conveting 2e adventures to 4e. My wife bought Paths of the Damned for me and I would live to run it using 4e.

Anyone know of a conversion guide out there.

Thanks

Hello Gary,

I cannot give you a conversation guide, but converting 2nd ed. to 4th ed. is rather easy. I am almost finished with converting The Thousand Thrones for my campaign. It is mainly converting the NPC stats, while for tests you have to apply some common sense (ie. T-Test becomes Endurance-Test, most Ag-Tests become Athletics-Tests etc.). For the NPCs you can keep the stats as they are most of the time (Dex and I need some fidgeting), whereas you have to check the Skills (and apply advances in accordance to the PC careers) and Talents more thoroughly.

Cheers

Thank you--this is great. I checked my PM and nothing was attached--iprobably because I just recently registered (e.g., when I tried to PM you, the site said that was restricted for me because I was a recent registrant). My email is dr.vril@gmail.com if you can resend? Much appreciated either way.

There is a free Pdf on drivethrurpg for converting 1st and 2nd edition to 4th edition. That might be aimed at converting PCs but should be applicable to npcs too.
