    Default Converting D&D 3rd edition characters to Traveller T20

    I just thought I'd convert some iconic D&D characters to T20, I'll start with some easy ones. We'll do Caramon Majere, Goldmoon, Riverwind, and Sturm Brightblade.

    Caramon converts to a 5th level Mercenary, and we'll give him suitable sci fi equipment.
    Goldmoon converts to a 5th level Barbarian with an artifact that substitutes for the Blue Crystal Staff
    Riverwind converts to a 5th level Barbarian , the artifact Goldmoon and Riverwind found transport both of them to Terra.
    Sturm Brightblade is of the Noble class, he comes with a yacht

    So how would they work as Traveller characters? I picked the easiest ones to convert.

    Heathen Cleric Goldmoon begins play as a heathen cleric with no clerical powers, which means she cannot channel positive energy, access clerical domains, turn undead, or cast clerical spells. She does count as a cleric of Mishakal for the purpose of accessing the power of the Blue Crystal Staff. When she studies the Disks of Mishakal, she will gain access to the following abilities:
    Special Actions turn undead 6/day (+3, 2d6+8, 5th)
    Cleric Spells Prepared (CL 5th, +4 melee, +5 ranged touch)
    Deity: Mishakal. Domains: Good, Healing
    SQ spontaneous casting (cure spells)
    Blue Crystal Staff[/i] the staff holds 20 charges, when it is fully charged. It regains charges at a rate of 1 charge per day, although when it is placed within the open hands of the statue of Mishakal in Xak Tsaroth it automatically regains full charges (this can only be done once per day).
    The wielder of the blue crystal staff can use the following powers of the staff without expending any charges: cure minor wounds, detect poison.
    The following powers drain 2 charges from the staff: command, cure light wounds, remove fear.
    The following powers drain 4 charges from the staff: continual flame, cure poison.
    The following powers drain 6 charges from the staff: [i]remove blindness/deafness[/i, remove curse, remove disease.
    The following powers drain 8 charges from the staff: cure critical wounds, restoration.
    The following powers drain 10 charges from the staff and can be used only by a Cleric of Mishakal wielding the staff: raise dead, regeneration.
    The following powers drain 14 charges from the staff and can be used only by a Cleric of Mishakal: greater restoration, resurrection.
    Besides its ability to heal, the staff can also be used in combat, since the goddess Mishakal understands that sometimes evil must be confronted directly. If wielded by a character of good alignment, the blue crystal staff functions as a +2 quarterstaff in combat. In the hands of a cleric of Mishakal, the blue crystal staff becomes a +5 holy quarterstaff, dealing an additional +2d6 points of holy (good) damage against creatures of evil alignment..
    By expending 2 charges (as a free action) during combat, the wielder of the blue crystal staff can automatically deal double damage (triple damage on a critical strike). By expending 4 charges, the wielder can choose to deal triple damage (quadruple damage on a critical strike). This ability can be used as many times during a single day as charges allow; however it may be used only once upon an individual opponent. If this ability of the blue crystal staff is used, the staff cannot be used to heal for 1 hour per charge expended to deal additional damage.
    Once per day, the staff may teleport without error, but it is the staff, not the wielder, that activates the power and chooses the location (at the DM's discretion), unless the wielder is a cleric of Mishakal. Also once per day, the staff may be used to automatically deflect the breath weapon of any dragon, protecting a 10-foot radius around its wielder and preventing any damage to the wielder.
    If a character of a non-good alignment attempts to wield the blue crystal staff, she suffers 2d6 points of holy (good) damage every round, and cannot make use of the staff's powers.

    I have to buy him suitable equipment. I used the NPC starting equipment funds in the DMG and converted its copper piece value into credits, that comes to Cr430,000 for a 5th level character.
