Thunder Rift - HQ Conversion

Postby torilen » Thursday September 24th, 2015 9:14am

I started working this morning on converting the basic D&D adventure, Quest for the Silver Sword,
into a HQ adventure. I can't copy and paste actual adventure text, so what I am doing is taking any
numerical item (combat, treasure, stats, etc.) and creating a notes booklet to go along with the
adventure.

I have mentioned before about wanting to convert some Forgotten Realms stuff into the HQ, and
I still may do that. I've given it some thought, though, and basic D&D has much less to worry about
as far as rules and stats, and so is more easily converted. And Thunder Rift is one of my favorite
published settings for the Known World, so Quest for the Silver Sword seemed a logical place to
start.

I hope to have the conversion done by the end of the weekend (maybe even by tomorrow, but I
don't want to get hopes up).

I'll post the booklet in this thread when I am done. I will post the other adventures that go with
the Thunder Rift setting here, as well - hence the overarching title.

I would love to see the final results of this work.

Now if someone would convert "The Palace of the Silver Princess" I would be stoked.

If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.
If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.

So, I am on page 13 of 16 of the adventure. Total of 5 pages of conversion so far...of course, there is some
empty space at the bottom of a couple of pages, and it is 12pnt font.

Anyhow...long story short...I'm almost done. It is a bugger...but hopefully will turn out something fun and
semi-useful.

Stay tuned... ... ...

Thunder Rift is my all time favorite D&D setting. Can't get enough of it.

I'm probably going to tackle the actual setting book when I get done with Quest for the Silver Sword.
I don't know how much of that really needs converting. I'll find out. :)

Sorry this took so long to finish. But, finally,
It is done. I had to wing quite a few of the stats,
So I hope this works out well.

I have no idea what the hero level should be for
this. I would guess they shod have at least some
experience and equipment/skill upgrades.

Enjoy folks. And keep watch for further conversions.
