    Future AD&D conversions

    Good Day Everyone,

    as you may know all AD&D official modules available for sell in the FG shop are made by community developers. Some modules are work in progress, some are being reviewed by the FG staff and some have been on the back burner for months (don t ask who does what cause nobody really knowns).

    Anyway, I thought I would put some feelers out, what does the AD&D community really wants to be converted? What are your needs as a player and/or DM?

    Obviously there are restrictions in settings development (DL product are not allowed at the moment as far as I know) and porting some box set and accessory products might not add much value to a VTT gameplay or the additional rules etc might be incompatible with the current ruleset.

    However if you don t ask...

    https://www.tsrarchive.com/add/add.html this is a list of product

    Cheers,

    I know some are in the work, don t think we are allowed to convert all MCs (due to 5E being stuck with FR...), however a way around could be to convert the Monster Compendium Annuals... Do you volunteer? you know the deal with me, happy to do the grunt work if you do the effect coding

    Desert of Desolation really added a lot of adventure around the initial I3 I4 and I5 modules.

    I3 to I5 (or Desert of desolation) would be a really nice adventure.
    But I'd personally prefer settings given the store lacks them: Maztica, the horde, Kara-tur, Al Quadim,Ravenloft etc (given we can have just FR and Ravenloft).
    Or, if we talk about crunch books: spells compendium, Item compendium, player option series, Dragon mountain, Tale of the comet (yeah it's an adventure but it add sci fi stuff). Maybe even an official OSRIC extension/ruleset to play AD&D 1ed (do not know if it's possible).

    Basically IMO now AD&D is missing stuff to spark DM creativity, we already have a lot of adventures.

    I wish that all "classic" settings would be available for conversion to FG. There was a poll on that some time ago and i can only hope that something comes out of it.

    Ive already sunken my teeth in some juicy pieces...

    Unless someone shows up with a huge motivation to write an OSRIC ruleset, the closest you'll get is probably Celestian's extension and my mod for it.

    Celestian's extension: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...e-1e-Extention
    My OSRIC mod (and that has a link to AlterZwerg's with magic items too): https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...6&d=1611343327

    Those honestly get you most of the way there.
