Re: Converting monsters from BFRPG to Iron Falcon

Thank you. I am just curious. When I use the formula you give, it's correct -- it matches up with the AC of the monsters in the Moldvay basic book and the 1978 Monster Manual. Swords & Wizardry also has the same descending AC. But what is interesting, for S&W ascending AC it is off by 1 point from t...

Converting monsters from BFRPG to Iron Falcon

Was wondering if you could share all the formula(s) needed to convert a BFRPG monster to Iron Falcon. I'd like to use the BFRPG core rule book & Field Guide monsters in IF games.

Re: The future of Iron Falcon?

My first exposure to D&D was in 1983 with the Mentzer red box. You as well (or perhaps Moldvay) and well you are the author of the best system that clones BECMI. So I really appreciate your interpretation of the first four booklets of OD&D. I am going to read your Iron Falcon book to learn OD&D and ...

Re: The future of Iron Falcon?

Have you read "White Box Heroes"? It's 40 pages and an expansion one can purchase (PDF or book on lulu.com). It adds several classes to the 3 booklet white box set or Swords & Wizardry.

Wondering if this would be a good addition to Iron Falcon.

Re: The future of Iron Falcon?

Oh this is handy. So that author goes over the necessary Chainmail rules as well. I read that the first supplement (Greyhawk) introduced an alternate combat system to replace Chainmail's along with other Chainmail & Outdoor Survival board game references. I just bought your Iron Falcon book in hardc...

Re: The future of Iron Falcon?

Yeah you have a point there, about just supplementing it. It's a very solid core and it's making the learning of the original rules much easier.

Thank you.

Re: The future of Iron Falcon?

Also, I like that you use the traditional save system vs. a streamlined single saving throw of Swords & Wizardry. Very happy you preserved the descending armor class as well. You didn't even give the option for ascending armor (unlike S&W) which is surprising since you chose ascending AC for Basic F...

Re: The future of Iron Falcon?

I have been reading Iron Falcon, and really enjoy it. I also have a copy of the original White Box rules and supplements. It's nice to have a book that puts these together in an enjoyable and aesthetically pleasant manner. I also have Swords & Wizardry, and I find Iron Falcon more accurate in certai...

Re: Some Conversion Questions

Is dndclassics.com a legitimate site? It's the only place I can find TOEE affordably--a "watermarked" pdf (whatever that watermark may be.. it might annoy me but they don't show me the watermark in the preview). Or I can buy it for like $50 off ebay then resell after I'm done with it.
