As Conversions Specialist of the Online Journal, it is my job to convert the stats from one system to the next.

But due to recent events that have made doing the conversions very non-apparant, I am improvising the creation of an Conversions Staff, who will help me convert single system stuff to another system.

The only thing is, we are on a major time crunch. I mean, like I need to get a group of people as in right now to help me complete these.

All I want for now are people who can convert something from d6 to d20. I will give you your assignments upon reply.

Either reply here, pm, email me if you want in. But please hurry, and thanks for any help I may get.

Okay, this is what i REALLY need. I need someone who is good at doing character conversions and someone who can do creature conversions. I can do them, but MAN they are time consuming.

Probably not a good time for me (smothered in art requests, help! ;) )
but I'll see what I can do as I am fluent in both d6 and d20 systems.
I have converted equipment from d6 to d20, though I have never converted d20 to d6.
I mainly use common sense than actual conversion rules detailed in the core rulebook which in my opinion.
Converting characters I look at the character description, history and personality when deciding on classes than actual statistics.

Though I have more experience converting equipment as a Gm of d20, I am finding equipment in high demand from players as opposed for aliens and creatures for their "next" character. Though it really is unsettling as a Gm when players talk about 'their next character', Am I doing something wrong?

Ok well if you want me to have a go, just email what you need, and I'll help out with the Journal ;)

Well, when you promise that it isn't a real shedload of creatures, I'd volunteer to convert them. :)

So Im guessing 100 creatures wont be good for you? :D Just kidding. No, there arnt that many, and besides, me and Korpil (and possibly Korris) will be able to do some.

Hey, may I suggest that the more advanced d20 personnel like you and Korpil take care for the characters? I'm happy that I know how to engineer creatures now, but characters are more difficult. ;) So I would use more personnel for doing the characters. :)

You know, Ive always thought creatures were harder because d6 only gives you three attributes, but d20 gives you so much added stuff to it. But I will take your advice and concentrate our main efforts on characters.

Okay, heres the deal, it seems theres been a bit of a mix-up in communications between the staff, and a lot of misunderstandings. This time crunch isnt the time crunch i thought it was, but the deadline will still be comming by shortly (although now none of us really know when). Sooooo, Ill still need a staff, and will be setting up a private part in DLOS that will be password secure for the conversions staff to discuss what needs to be done, etc.

We still need more members to this staff, so if interested, just contact me.

It will be easier for me just to set up a Yahoo Groups account; as we need to get rolling quickly.

Anyone who still wants to join can.

Of late I've spent time converting my group's D6 characters to d20 characters, and I feel I'm fairly capable.

There may be some method to my madness, but I doubt it. If you want someone who works more with feel than think, you're welcome to me. ;)
