My sword-and-sorcery conversion of SWSE is ready for perusal here:

http://www.gneech.com/swordandsorcery/index.html

Granted, it seems a little anti-climactic after the big 4E announcement, but still! Anybody out there who wants to take a look at it, try to break it, tell me what they like or hate about it, and so on, please do with my blessing and gratitude!

EDIT: The file above is now version 1.02, which adds a stat block for wolves (which were supposed to be there before but fell out somehow) and fixes a few typos.

ANOTHER EDIT: 8/24/2007 - I have added a new adventure conversion here:

http://www.gneech.com/swordandsorcery/downloads/swords_against_sorcery_conversion.pdf

This is a S&S Saga conversion of "Swords Against Sorcery" for Runequest/Lankhmar by Mongoose Publishing, which I highly recommend and can be purchased as a PDF here:

http://enworld.rpgnow.com/product_info.php?products_id=21713

This conversion includes rules for Undead in S&S Saga, as well as statistics for
tiny monstrous hunting spiders, large monstrous hunting spiders, undead giant salt spiders, the Gray Mouser, a third level cult priestess, skeleton warriors, and 15th level lich nobles
!

Enjoy, and please let me know what you think!

UPDATE 12/21/2007 -- I have added a character sheet and a finalized High Fantasy Races writeup. My next project will be a character creation quicksheet. Enjoy! I have added some errata to the main page, as well.

UPDATE 12/23/2007 -- Character creation quicksheet added! http://www.gneech.com/swordandsorcery/downloads/saga_character_creation_quicksheet.pdf

Thanks! This looks like tremendous fun -- and this makes me sad that I didn't allocate funds for a copy of Star Wars Saga this pay period :(

Wow, that looks awesome.
Have you considered releasing the parts that aren't ripped from SWSE as Open Game Content so others can use them? I haven't read it in depth, but it looks like your spell system is quite different from SWSE's.

Thanks!

At this stage it's not quite robust enough to stand alone really -- but by all means snag the spell system for house rules if you'd like! Everything that was "just like in SWSE" I put in a placeholder so that I wasn't just cribbing off closed content material.

As for publishing it as an OGL release, I'd be happy to discuss it with a publisher, but I would say it was premature to really invest in a project like that with 4E around the corner.

Cool, thanks for releasing this. (Not all of us are "bowled over" by the 4th Ed news.)

So next I hope we'll see Saga + Mutants & Masterminds = kick-arse supers game!

This kind of seems to be overshadowed by some other stuff going around here at the moment, but I just wanted to say "Thanx!" I've only skimmed it so far but it looks really, really cool (and it kind of kills two birds with one stone for me at the moment).

Hey, that download worked great :)

Looking it over, I'm much impressed :) Way to go. Gives a good feeling for a S&S type of game.

Actually with your premission and if I can get a few players I'd like to do a playtest of it play by post.

Do High Men get illiteracy or Knowledge (literacy)? The document doesn't specify.

Also, there are three references to "buying X with skill points", which you might want to change to "select as a trained skill"

High men get Knowledge (Literacy). And you're right, re: selecting as a trained skill. I'll change that for the next round. :)

I have only given it a quickly look, but THANK YOU very much for the time you have spent on this. I was going to start a Conan campaign, but could not bring myself to learn all those rules (of the Conan game). Now I have a SAGA conversion that will do the job BETTER.

THANKS A MILLION.

(Oh, and if you would like any art work for further updates, if you have any planned, I will gladly do them, as my way of saying thanks. Just pm me.)

d :D
