AS to CBT damage conversion
« on: 08 December 2019, 02:16:35 »
Hey all, I'm playing in a campaign currently and I believe that I had previously read somewhere of a way to convert damage from Alpha Strike to Classic Battletech and visa versa, so I wanted to inquire as to where I can find that information.

If anyone knows, it would be a great help.

Converting AS damage to CBT in the way that CBT records damage would be impossible. You could get near damage total numbers, but no hit locations means you'd take creative freedoms in order to do it.

You can convert CBT record sheets to AS cards using the conversion rules currently only available in the Alpha Strike Companion book. The Commander's Edition mentions a PDF resource of this available on the website for conversion, but that has yet to be produced due to limited resources being stretched thin on other projects that have taken priority (from what I understand).

These rules already exist. Because Battleforce and Alpha Strike stats are identical, you can use the Converting Battleforce to Battletech rules, beginning in page 378 of StratOps.
