CONVERSIONS

Like they said in the d20 Core book, conversion is more of an art than a science. So, you might find there are some discrepancies in the notes below and the write-ups I made. for example. While I started the write-up conversions based on these notes, I fine tunned them afterwards based on my perceptions. I encourage you to do the same.

SKILLS

D6

There are two ways to convert skills from the D6 system:

  1. Every two pips in the skill, above the base attribute score, grants one skill level, up to five. After that, every two pips grants one level. Example: If a Jedi character has a Dexterity of 3D and a Lightsaber skill of 5D, then his Unisystem skill is Martial Arts (Lightsaber) 3.
  2. Unisystem Skill Level = Skill Die Code - Attribute Die Code. Example: If a Jedi character has a Dexterity of 3D and a Lightsaber skill of 5D, then his Unisystem skill is Martial Arts (Lightsaber) 2.

In this site's write-ups I used a combination of both methods. Of course, the write-up you are converting from will influence your results.


EQUIPMENT

     Most equipment doesn't require conversion, like glowrods; just use it as is. Weapons and armors, on the other hand, can be converted by crossreferencing its D6 code and the Conversion Guidelines Appendix in the d20 Core Rulebook (p. 309).


VEHICLES/SHIPS

     I'm still working on them. Be patient, young Padawan.


FORCE

There isn't a hard and fast rule for this one. To come up with the Force skill levels, I used the D6 write-ups and its levels. Example: Mace Windu's D6 write-up lists his Force skills -- Control, Sense and Alter -- as being 12, 10 and 12+2. So, I gave his Unisystem Force skills the same levels: 12, 10 and 12. If you wish to use the d20 write-ups, take all the d20 Force skill ratings of a particular feat -- Control, Sense or Alter -- subtract the attribute bonuses and average them. Example: Mace Windu' s Alter Force skills are Affect Mind +18, Force Push +17 and Move Object +19. Without the attribute bonuses, they become +14, +14 and +16, averaging 14. So Mace Windu's Unisystem Alter skill is 14.

The powers were taken from both the D6 and d20 versions of the game.
