Welcome to the home of Earthdawn D20, a conversion of FASA's Earthdawn 1st edition to the D20 System.
The Project: I'm attempting a conversion of the entire Earthdawn 1e book to the D20 system. The abilities are switched over to their D20 counterparts. The races are all being created in bulkier (+2 modifier total instead of balanced) Earthdawn format. I'm converting the disciplines to 20 level core classes. The talents are becoming a mix of skills, feats, and class abilities. Skills will become D20 skills. Spells will become D20 format however there will remain only 8 levels of spells because I'm using a magic system based more on the Earthdawn system. Karma points and strain are surviving relativity untouched. Hit points are scrapped in favor of the Vitality Point / Wound Point that closely retains the Earthdawn feel.
The Future: After the conversion is up in draft form I'll be making revisions based on personal play testing and your suggestions. Also I hope to create more D20 material for the setting and do some CC2 mapping.
Update (7/30/2001) - Yeah! Hit 2000 on the counter. Thanks to everyone that has looked at my page. Keep coming back because those Talents etc. are getting there.
Update (7/30/2001) - Added a graphic for the Guest Book.
Update (7/29/2001) - Added a guest book, so please post a message! Got a nice amount of work. The Talents, Skills, Classes, Karma, VP / WP System, and Recovery Tests should be typed up soon.
Your suggestions will be extremely valuable to me, so please comment on my conversion at Earthdawn_D20@hotmail.com.
