Using Basic Fantasy core rules for other Genre

Post Wed Jun 09, 2021 5:45 pm

So recently it came up that a few of my players were interested in playing a Star Wars style RPG. I did some digging and found a few but some required a bit of learning curve compared to the OSR style they are used to. This got me thinking if it is possible to use Basic Fantasy core rules as a template to reskin to be used as a hack for Star Wars. The big hang up would be dealing with force powers.

I know of Star Wars Galactic Adventures that is on Wizardawn and that looks like a great system with a good OSR feel but wasn't floating over well with the players due to limited accessibility.

I also looked into West End Games Star Wars D6 system and that is also fairly simple but sadly my players have become very rooted in the core rules and style of Basic Fantasy.

Not sure if anyone has done a homebrew hack of BF to play more like a universal system for other genres but just wanted to see if anyone else has attempted something similar?

I did find that post when searching yesterday and that got me really excited. Not sure how complete it was.

Have you looked at White Star (https://barrelridergames.wordpress.com/white-star/)? Not BFRPG, but it's a very Star Warsy version of Swords & Wizardry White Box. Probably lots of stuff in it you could use.
