FOURTH EDITION D&D CONVERSION TO M&M THIRD EDITION

Most of these notes can work for 3.5 D&D as well. Looking at the measurements table everything falls into a wide range especially as the numbers increase. I noticed the chart follows the old Second Edition M&M chart as far as strength goes using the mandatory super-strength option. Since that chart is the same as the D&D chart it is good to look at. Every +5 ranks in strength in D&D doubles lifting strength and every rank in M&M 3rd Edition doubles lifting strength. So every rank in M&M covers like 5-6 ranks in D&D. So keeping that in mind I use that to figure out damage, skills, attack, initiative, etc. I use the chart below. Strength will be figured out differently. I hope it makes sense.

Rank Bonus/Rank
D&D/ M&M
1-3/ 1-3
4-5/ 4
6-7/ 5
8-9/ 6
10-12/ 7
13-16/ 8
17-19/ 9
20-23/ 10
24-26/ 11
27-30/ 12
31-33/ 13
34-37/ 14
38-40/ 15
41-44/ 16
45-47/ 17
48-51/ 18
52-54/ 19
55-58/ 20
59-61/ 21

So looking at someone like Spider-Man he would have 44-45 strength in D&D and a +17 bonus to damage. Looking at the chart that would convert to 9 in M&M. You could use this chart to convert either way. And like I mentioned I use this for more than just damage.

Defenses and Initiative

I use Hit Points and Armor Class to figure out the toughness save. First I subtract 10 plus the creatures dex or int modifier plus half it’s level to figure out it’s natural armor. Then I divide the HP but ten and round either up or down. Then I add the natural armor and HP/10 and then divide by two. For example:
The Light of Amoth in MM3 has an AC of 40. Subtract 10 plus it’s dexterity and half it’s level (+22) and you get a natural armor of 8. It has 341 HP divided by 10 equals 34. 34+8= 42 divided by 2 gives it a +21 bonus. Look above and that gives it 10 toughness.
For Fortitude and Will subtract 10 and look at the chart to figure out the bonus.
I use the Reflex save minus 10 to figure out Dodge.
I use dexterity plus half the creature’s level to figure out Parry. The Light of Amoth’s +22 bonus would give it 10 Parry.
Use the chart for Initiative as well. The Light of Amoth has +22 Initiative in D&D which converts to a +10 bonus in M&M.

Ability Scores

For ability scores I use the base bonus without the level bonus. Two abilities are figured out differently. For fighting I use the ability bonus for strength plus half level to determine base fighting skill. Of course if it is more than the parry defense I will lower it and just give the character the close attack advantage.
Strength is also figured out differently and I use the max lifting for the character in D&D to figure out where they land in the scale. Most creatures have 2-3 strength at least and usually max out at 8-9. Also quadrupeds will increase lifting by 25%.
Also the dexterity stat in D&D is used to figure out both agility and dexterity in M&M. Though I will lower agility in some case to get the initiative I want the character to have.

Skills and Advantages

Every creature has a bunch of skills equal to it’s ability modifier plus half it’s level. Plus a couple skills it is trained in. I only use the skills that appear in D&D. Though a few skills I will not use if the creature isn’t intelligent. Like any intellect skills or deception and persuasion. All creatures can use the intimidate skill however. Creatures also will have bonuses to certain fighting skills depending on there powers.
Most advantages that are used are close attack, range attack, improved initiative, and languages. I also use the toughness feat from second edition to show a creature’s innate toughness.

Powers

A lot of powers in D&D cause a target to change positions or shift. Now if I figure the power is purely physical then I won’t figure it into the power since basically you could call it knockback. However if that power is psychic in nature and is used to bring the character closer for example I will use it.
Affliction is a great power to use because powers in D&D cause the target to be stunned, proned, hindered, etc. In D&D for example a power which is +32 against fortitude(13 in M&M) and the character is immobilized. Most D&D afflictions will be limited to limited degrees plus limited to one condition in certain circumstances.
For damage I use the average and look at the chart above. So for instance a power does 4d10 + 20
would average 40 damage in D&D which would be 15 damage in M&M. Also I use the upgraded Damage rules in D&D for older monsters.
Some powers in D&D have no rank so I will make it equal to another similar ability or make it equal to the monster’s PL. All a judgement call here.
A lot of monsters have immunities. Some are even constructs. However these creatures I do not give immunity fortitude. The creatures in D&D do not have that or have it in limited degrees like high resistance to necrotic effects. Undead are not immune to necrotic effects. They have other immunities like sleep, poison and disease.
Resist in D&D is impervious in M&M. So resist 10 in D&D would allow a creature to resist 7 ranks of damage in M&M or 13 impervious. If you are using second edition M&M that would be 7 impervious.
Growth and shrinking do not do much in D&D besides increase or decrease reach and how much space you take up. However I do subtract or add bonuses to the D&D ability before figuring it out in M&M. For example the Light of Amoth is Large and would subtract -2 from defenses. So for dodge I would subtract 12 from it’s reflex which is 41. It would then have 29 and looking at the chart would have a 12 after figuring growth minuses in. Also would do the same for stealth and intimidation.
One power I do add to some monsters is additional limbs. I know in M&M that provides a bonus to grappling but I also think it can provide bonuses to other things like resisting tripping. Depends on what the additional limbs are.
Also a lot of powers have big limitations. Like only once per encounter which I count as a -2 limitation. Certain powers like impervious(fire only) would be a -3 limitation.
Some powers have limitations that can only be used if the monster has combat advantage. Monsters get combat advantage if the enemy is blind, dazed, helpless(defenseless), prone, restrained, stunned, and surprised. It also includes if the target is balancing, climbing, flanked, running at full speed(double move), or whatever other condition where a character can't pay full attention to defense.


Pathfinder Conversion and D&D 3.5 to M&M Third Edition

These notes can work for D&D 3.5 as well. Looking at the measurements table everything falls into a wide range especially as the numbers increase. I noticed the chart follows the old Second Edition M&M chart as far as strength goes using the mandatory super-strength option. Since that chart is the same as the D&D chart it is good to look at. Every +5 ranks in strength in D&D doubles lifting strength and every rank in M&M 3rd Edition doubles lifting strength. So every rank in M&M covers like 5-6 ranks in Pathfinder. So keeping that in mind I use that to figure out damage, skills, attack, initiative, etc. I use the chart below. Strength will be figured out differently.

Rank Bonus/Rank
Pathfinder/ M&M
1-3/ 1-3
4-5/ 4
6-7/ 5
8-9/ 6
10-12/ 7
13-16/ 8
17-19/ 9
20-23/ 10
24-26/ 11
27-30/ 12
31-33/ 13
34-37/ 14
38-40/ 15
41-44/ 16
45-47/ 17
48-51/ 18
52-54/ 19
55-58/ 20
59-61/ 21

Defenses and Initiative

I use Hit Points and Natural Armor to figure out the toughness save. I divide the HP by ten and round either up or down. Then I add the natural armor and HP/10 and then divide by two. Use that number to check the chart above. Both Hit Points and Natural Armor determine if you hurt somebody so I figured I would use the average of the two. Initially I thought about dividing by 7 since that is the number of strength increments in Pathfinder which is one rank in M&M. For example M&M rank 10 covers strength increments 50-57 in Pathfinder. But I went with ten for a nice round number. Recently I have been looking at the Pathfinder OGL and tried this formula on object strength. Mithral has a hardness of 15(I know hardness is like Damage Resistance but an alternate rule in Pathfinder used Armor and Natural Armor as DR and HP as vitality points) and 30 HP per inch. So 15 plus 30/10 equals 18/2 equals 9. Look at the chart and 9 gives you 6 toughness. If you double the thickness you get 15 plus 60/10 equals 21/2 equals 10 which is 7 toughness in M&M. I am no expert about Mithral in Pathfinder but the converted toughness is pretty good.
For Fortitude and Will subtract 10 and look at the chart to figure out the bonus. I will also average out Will and Fortitude with HP but only against damaging effects. Most creatures stay the same or within one point whether I subtract 10 and look at the chart or average it out with HP. I figured a creature like the Terrasque shouldn’t be easy to put down with a psychic blast.
I use the Reflex save minus 10 to figure out Dodge.
I use Base Fighting to figure out Parry.
Use the chart for Initiative as well.

Ability Scores

For ability scores I use the base bonus. Strength is figured out differently and I use the max lifting for what a character can lift off the ground which is double on the Heavy Lifting Scale. Giants and quadrupeds can lift more and this will add to the strength stat or be converted to power lifting depending on how much damage they do. The dexterity stat in D&D is used to figure out both agility and dexterity in M&M. Though I will lower agility in some case to get the initiative I want the character to have.

Skills and Advantages

Skills are pretty easy just check the total skill bonus with the chart. At times I will have a limited skill bonus like athletics-climbing only.
Most advantages that are used are close attack, range attack, improved initiative, and languages. I also use the toughness feat from second edition to show a creature’s innate toughness.

Powers

For damage I use the average and look at the chart above. So for instance a power does 4d10 + 20
would average 40-42 damage in D&D which would be 15 damage in M&M.
Resist in D&D is impervious in M&M. So resist 10 in D&D would allow a creature to resist 7 ranks of damage in M&M or 13 impervious. If you are using second edition M&M that would be 7 impervious.
One power I do add to some monsters is additional limbs. I know in M&M that provides a bonus to grappling but I also think it can provide bonuses to other things like resisting tripping. Depends on what the additional limbs are.A power a lot of magical creatures have is spell resistance. This is similar to power resistance in second edition. It is a reactive nullify power at personal range. I also put effortless on it since the character with spell resistance should be able to do it over and over without extra effort.
Also a lot of powers have big limitations. Like only once per encounter which I count as a -2 limitation. Once per day would be a -3 limitation. Certain powers like impervious(fire only) would also be a -3 limitation.

Misc

Pathfinder has CMB(Combat Maneuver Bonus) and CMD(Combat Maneuver Defense). M&M has no rules for this but it wouldn’t be hard to convert. CMB and CMD deal with special maneuvers like trip, grapple, disarm etc. Some creatures have bonuses versus certain maneuvers and I will treat these as a skill bonus limited versus that attack or whatever other trait might work. I will only do this if the bonus to CMD versus a certain attack is significant.

Marvel Conversion Notes

I will try to make my Marvel conversions compatible with DC characters. Most characters in the DC books I have no problem with the stats and I will use them to gauge certain abilities. For instance I have no problem with Nightwing's Dodge and Parry and use that to figure out other characters who are good at avoiding attacks. I would consider Spider-Man better and daredevil equal for instance. I would consider Batman and Bane having the best Fortitude among normal humans. Characters will not always meet their caps though I will try but not force it. Trying to make them comic accurate from my point of view.

Skills
I like using expertise to distinguish some characters even though some would not be equal to other skills. I also use limited on skills like Vehicles depending on the individual.

Advantages
I use some feats from second edition and will probably add more as I figure which ones are compatible and not broken. These are what I use so far:
Tough-+1 to Toughness saves per rank.
Withstand damage-Reduce active defenses to increase Toughness.

They can be baited with food to come to a location and serve as guardians to that place provided they have a constant food source.

Defense
Dodge 8, Parry 7
Toughness 5, Fortitude 7, Will 6

Power Points
Abilities 58 + Powers 48 + Advantages 1 + Skills 22 + Defenses 11 = Total 140

Complications
Enemies: Demons, those with doing good motivation.
Motivation: Adding to Nine Hell's power by capturing and consuming mortal souls.
Sadistic: Enjoys capturing and torturing foes.

Design Notes
This is a D&D Fourth Edition Chain Devil. Offensively it is PL 8.5 using it's chains and defensively it is PL 9 due to it's fire immunity. It's main weapon is it's chains that are hard to remove due to the chains being wrapped around it's body. It can use them to strike or ensnare an opponent. Defensively it is highly immune to fire and uses Dance of Defiance to avoid melee attacks. This is a immediate interrupt power which allows it to move before the attack gets there. This is represented by immunity melee attacks. But anyone who has a reach longer than five feet can still hit the Kyton since it only shifts five feet from previous position. Chain Devils enjoy capturing foes and killing them slowly.
