Please someone knows how many system conversions are explained in this product by Dimension six?

I think it details conversion between AD&D and Runequest and vice-versa.

Are there more systems covered?

thanks

I believe it also converts Arduin and Tunnels & Trolls.

Correct.

Here is the complete list of F.R.P Game Systems included in the Complete Fantasist.

AD&D
Ardiun Grimoire
Rune Quest
Tunnels and Trolls

Per Forward: Not an exact quote... paraphrased.
"There was to be a Fifth Game covered in this volume.
But Chivalry and Sorcery belongs to a different type of F. R. P. game system... like Empire of the Petal Throne."

To be honest:
In the context of what it is meant for; it is probably one of the least used but more useful tomes gathering dust on many collectors' bookshelves.

The books forward went on to say they had planned to cover those two and other systems in a future publication.
As far as I know that never happened.

There is a simialr conversion product that converts accross systems by Armoury called DataCon. Published a few years after Compleat Fantasist, but taking in other games systems IIRC.

Data Con cover different genres: Fantasy, Cyberpunk, Comic, Horror, Space, Multi-genre and Mech. For each one, several games. For the Fantasy, the one of interest, Data Con offers the conversion charts for AD&D, Palladium, RQ, MERP, GURPS, Hero and WH. Sadly, no C&S stats...
