I just skimmed through the Al-Qadim conversion to 3.5 rules on Kynn.com. I've not had a proper look yet, but thought I would pass on the good news for any 3e FR fans who wanted to use Al-Qadim in their game.

The downloads include:


I'm not sure if that covers everything yet, but if anyone has used these rules, I would be glad to have your input.

EDIT: The kynn.com website has been hijacked by cybersquatters. Links replaced with links to the Wayback Machine.

EDIT 2: New upload of Al-Qadim 3.5 by Kynn Bartlett.

Wow that all looks pretty cool, thanks for posting the links. I'll post some thoughts once I've had a read through.

The end. As far as the subject is Al-Qadim.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean here. :?

Are you saying that Kynn Bartlett has made a mistake?

I'm saying that one of the very basic properties of this setting gone mysteriously missing (funny, given attention to other details, yes).
Everyone (except Pantheon League - but then, it's one more reason why other folk tend to think they're jerks) see demihuman differences only in terms of natural advantages/disadvantages. I.e. the only reason why goblinoids, ogres and mermen weren't PC races right from the start is because Land of Fate was published a year before The Complete Book of Humanoids.
The Enlightened don't give a dead fish for the squabbles of old elven/orcish gods and whatnot, and Law of the Loregiver doesn't recognize such differences, so the only "big deal" divisions between mortals are Enlightened/barbarians and Pantheon/everyone else. Isn't this one of the main points?

I currently have problems only with "Core Classes" and "Prestige Classes", the rest works.

That is correct, it is a major deviation w.r.t. the original material. Racial hatreds are non-existent in Zakhara, except to some extent among unenlightened barbarians. Zakhara is a cosmopolitan setting, where most races are supposed to live together.

Just a question, does anybody saved the "core classes" pdf? It's now damaged or somehow unavaible.
Can anybody help me? :(

Hi Psicokato. Welcome to The Piazza!

I just tried the Core Classes link, from the top post again and could read 13 pages out of 13.

This is via the Wayback Machine, so sometimes it is a bit slow. Maybe you tried at a busy time when their servers were not working. Try downloading it again.

Let me know if it works.

That one doesn't work for me either. All the others downloaded properly.
