Any suggestions how to convert between Tunnels & Trolls to DCC? I have a dungeon I'd love to convert over.
T&T is a little tricky because it mostly relies on a single number, whereas more complex RPGs have multiple numbers. This means you won't have a perfect conversion, but you can "fake it" and get results that are pretty good.
The first step might be to look for a similar monster in DCC. Of course, that won't really "convert" since a monster might be strong in one game and weak in the other. This might or might not matter to you, as T&T is known for not balancing encounters.
It might at least help you with damage. "Ah ... so the monster fights a lot like an ogre, so I can use this damage ..." or whatever. Same for AC and some of the other key stats.
Hit Dice are actually pretty easy, however, and HDx15=MR is a good rule of thumb to convert a D&D monster into a T&T MR (and DCC monsters are very similar to D&D ones). Sometimes adjustments are needed, and I like to use +/-3 MR for each +/- to HD.
Maybe that helps?
