I have a bunch of ship stats that I was considering submitting. They're in D20 and I have no experience converting. So my question is should I send them in in d20 only or should I go pester people in the D6 to see if anyone nice will convert them for me?

The Online Journal has people on its staff who do this kind of conversion work, Rogue Janson. There should be a brief capsule or write-up to accompany it. If you've got that, send it in and we will do the conversion!

Ok, thanks.
I read you had a conversions specialist but preferrred both systems and just imagined this incredibly stressed specialist slaving in a darkened room over hot stats day and night.

Seriously I think my job is the easiest on the Journal so don't worry about it.
Everything that comes out will be in both systems so if it's not in both systems I just convert it. (Doesn't mean we don't prefer submissions in both systems... :D)

Well there's a bunch of starships submitted to make your job a bit harder Overlord :janson:. It's the last week of term, I'm bored and my economics work is too hard, so I'm passing the time making stats.
All in all they're probably not all that interesting for D6 players, but imo D20 still doesn't have all that many ships, especially ones that are properly RCRB compliant (not to mention compliant to the revisions in the revised starship rules).

Are you reverse engineering the Pirates & Privateers database, Janson? That's one of those projects everyone agrees should be done but just doesn't get done.

No, I'm afraid not. At the moment I'm mainly doing things from X-Wing Alliance and some other lucasarts games, which have the big advantage that I don't have to visualise the ships, along with a little bit of my own stuff.
