[BECMI] Timothy Brannon working on an HPE-series conversion

Post by Tim Baker » Wed Apr 19, 2017 6:38 am

OSR designer Timothy Brannon is working on a conversion of the Nentir Vale HPE-series adventures into BECMI. If you're interested in the Nentir Vale but don't care for 4th Edition, this may be a fun opportunity to delve into the setting.

He started with a quick conversion of the Ghost Tower of the Whitchlight Fens solo adventure that's available for free.

That's really awesome.

I do hope he continues, like he said he might.

Too bad I know next to nothing about BECMI... but is good to see some Nentir Vale love. If he needs help, I'd like to help.

If you know AD&D (1st or 2md ed) you known about, what?, 80-90% of BECMI/Original D&D. They are quite close. More so them AD&D (or OD&D) is to 3rd.x, 4th or 5th Ed D&D by a wide margin (not to sat they are bad systems, just indicating the closeness/compatibility of those 2 older systems).

Hey Tim!

Thanks for coming over to The Piazza to talk to us. You might want to pop over to the Introduce yourself here topic, say "hi" to the entire community and tell people a bit about yourself.

How did the new bits turn out?

Do you have an index for this, where I can look to see if new updates have been posted?
