House Handbooks and AToW?
« on: 20 July 2012, 00:15:07 »
Are the Handbook stats for creatures and equipment usable for A Time of War?  Is there some resource that can convert the Classic Battletech RPG stats to AToW?

AToW Companion will probably handle both cases.
Kerensky: Ahh! After 300 years I'm free! It's time to conquer Terra!

Blake: Toyama-5, Kerensky's escaped. Recruit 5 House Teens with attitudes.

There have been some variances in the stats of the creatures presented in prior Handbooks to A Time of War rules. Many of these are an effect of game balancing, however, making their changes more arbitrary. Fortunately, because the A Time of War system derives so closely from MechWarrior 3rd Edition (CBT: RPG), conversion is otherwise a fairly direct effort, largely involving "delete the 'D6'"

Hopefully, that helps.

Thank you,
