The originals were of course a couple of my favorites of all time, and I wasn't aware that the Return modules even existed until recently. The only problem is they are 3E! So now I might have to down-convert them to 2E. Is there any official position on down-converting a 3e+ adventure to 1E/2E and offering it for sale on FG?
    Wizards has not allowed us to touch anything from 3.x or 4e, and an official implementation would probably have to be for the ruleset the adventure was originally for if they ever did. Only reason we're getting basic as well as 1st and 2nd edition modules for the 2e ruleset is because it's all the same basic system at the core.

    Actually, I just discovered I was wrong about Return to the Tomb of Horrors; it's 2E! Written by Bruce R. Cordell, with a forward by Gary Gygax, published in 1998. The forward is really interesting where Gygax talks about the original. It also looks very large. The PDF I found of it is 100M. Come on, who want's to get this into FG!?

    RttToH would be a huge beast to convert. I think it probably is bigger than Night Below, but would likely sell for the same $29.99 price point. I'd buy it though.

    Which is why it won't happen. We only currently have permission to do Ravenloft and Forgotten Realms (and their directly related sub-settings). We do not have permission to convert anything with any branding for campaign settings outside of those. The current Greyhawk and Mystara adventures are allowed because they don't have the big banner across the top saying Greyhawk or Mystara/Known World.

    Unfortunately also not currently a possibility for the same reason.

    But let WotC know you want this.

    I'm not so sure about that. Do you have some information from Doug on this? As far as I am aware only settings are not allowed. Adventures from settings (outside of Dragonlance, that request NOT by me) have not been rejected when I requested to convert them.

    To be clear, I am certain we cannot convert settings not approved by WoTC and I've been told those settings are only ones that 5e has used so far.... which excludes a fair few ;(

    Short version of the story, request to convert it, the worst they can say is no.
