    (DnD 5e) Birthright Conversion

    This looks like the easiest edition in the last 15 years to make a conversion of the Birthright rules. It really gives me a ADnD 2e vibe.

    Though maybe it's better to wait for the PHB to come out. Anyone feels like bouncing some ideas around?

    I'd like to keep it as similar to the original rules as possible (I believe the 3rd ed conversion changed too much stuff).

    For real starters, I think all we need are Races (or even just use the races as in the Basic document) and Blood Abilities conversions.

    who's up for it?

    Sounds like a good thing to talk about. As the primary site for Birthright, we will need to have something to show possible new fans, even if it is just ideas, not full rules.

    I have only been following Next/5e from a distance. What are the key elements? What are being used instead of NWPs/Skills/Feats? How are classes specialised?

    Basic rules can be downloaded for free on the Wizards site

    http://www.wizards.com/dnd/Article.a...dnd/basicrules

    All in all, looks like mix between 2e and 3.5, without Feats for the moments.

    I kind of like it.

    Thank you. Having a peruse. Even the secondary d20 roll for advantage/disadvantage sounds quite new. It will be interesting what characters/npcs/races/spells etc can change in gameplay/capability.

    From a quick perusal of the download, I don't see much of a need to do any converting, either the 2E or the 3E versions of Birthright rules would work with only a minor tweak or two here or there.
