This is where I’ll put random stuff concerning my hobbies, particularly Dungeons and Dragons (I prefer 3.5 over 4th Edition), Ragnarok Online, and Warhammer 40k. As noted in the title, this is where I indulge in my personal blend of geekery, so fair warning to casual readers: head back to the main blog, ASAP.
Some of the following are my personal attempts at converting the rather MMORPG-flavored classes from RO (or at least the ones relevant to whatever story I have in the back of my head) to D&D. In hindsight, 4th Edition’s structure would be much better suited to the conversion, but I haven’t really gotten too many 4th Edition games under my belt, though I have played a lot of 3.5, so that’s what I will use, with some house-rules of course.
As for the conversions, it’s inherently difficult to get a balanced D&D conversion when the actual source material isn’t balanced. At all. It’s a problem for Ragnarok Online, and indeed, most MMORPGs that inevitably a single setup for a single class can pretty much destroy most of their fellows. So I’m not going to even try.
The Warhammer 40k stuff is pretty much self-explanatory, so I won’t go into it further.
