I've started converting my favorite 3rd edition module (heck... my favorite D&D module of all time!) to the current 4th Edition rules. I'm looking for help from anyone interested in converting this most excellent module.
I'll need help with the following:
-Converting monsters and NPCs to 4e monster stat blocks. This includes "interpreting" NPCs so a 4e conversion can be made.
-Converting rooms so they can be made into encounters. This may require completely changing the layout of the rooms (such as the Inverted Tower in Szith Morcane) so they are compatible with the 4e mentality or combing rooms to make encounters.
-Thoughts on how to exactly play the game. One of the nice things of CotSQ was that it included a section on "How to Play the NPCs Smart". How does this work with the 4e short and extended rests?
Thanks for any help!
Essentials Started it rolling and we cant be sure about the D&Next thing coming up. Between comments about combat oriented classes and out of combat ones and a sense that perhaps new devs are out of touch with 4e, will 5e be "the past all over again?" Some grognards are the passionate ones that make even the rest of us sigh. But others may be voices of reason who understand the value of true balance and who take up the fight exerting there voices of concern. The reasons for the original design decisions of 4e didnt suddenly go away... It's not about hate, its about love, we love 4th edition. "Can there be a place for those who love 4th edition in 5th edition?"
