Quote from: jordvortexanIt has a very open nature and can be summed up in a few pages.
Quote from: MadMosesMaybe Gareth or Todd (hey Todd!) can give us some insight about the current plans or ideas on this?
Quote from: TSLHello to you He who is Always to be Introduced as 'From Germany'
Quote from: TSLWe've actually got several systems in mind. You all know there's gonna be a d20 appendix. [Yeah, groan away.]
Quote from: MadMosesQuote from: TSLHello to you He who is Always to be Introduced as 'From Germany'Aaargh! But what should I expect? There's just nothing else to say about me. I guess I'll just have to live with that.
Quote from: jordvortexanMaybe include a system for folks who dig realism and detail, GURPS probably has the biggest fan base.
Quote from: Jared A. SorensenDude, at least you have the "from Germany" part. Look at it this way:"Hey guys, this is Jared." *silence*"Hey guys, this is Jurgen...from Germany
Quote from: GarethD20 is as detailed as I want to get....and I'll be completely up-front about this: the only reason we're including an appendix of those rules is because of the measurable sales spike that it represents.
Quote from: MadMosesI would say D20 is way "too detailed" for urban fairy-tale UW, but you already told us why you'll include it anyway. Although I would rather see this appendix on the web and not in the book (cause I'm also a bit "afraid" of d20 monster stats in upcoming UW releases), which would mean that I wouldn't have to pay for content that I will never use, I'm aware that this prolly won't have the same boost effect on sales.
Quote from: GMSkarkaI was watching "RKO 281" last night, and as arrogant as it sounds, I want UW2 to be my "Citizen Kane"....completely and uncompromisedly faithful to my vision. Sounds awfully pretentious, but screw it....it's how I feel.
Quote from: GMSkarka1) Keeping it as an appendix. I don't want this sucker eating up the book.2) Putting in some kind of conversion mechanic, so that I don't have to include any D20 stats in any future products. Give the D20 fans the tools to make the conversions themselves, and leave it at that.3) Make some attempt at keeping the UW feel in the D20 rules---come up with UW-specific rules adaptations, rather than just presenting UW as a D&D campaign setting.
Quote from: Jason L BlairDo you think you'll be able to do this and still include rules conversions? If part of your vision is for UW to be able to fulfill the largest group's needs, then I can see it. But if you're doing these conversions strictly for sales, then I'd say your vision is already compromised.
