In my current AD&D campaign, I've used Tomb of the Iron God (for S&W), Orange B3 (B/X), Grinding Gear (generic D&D module scaled to about B/X or so), Dark Chateau (C&C), parts of Demonspore (S&W), and Barrowmaze (LL, so B/X) with no problem. I don't really convert; I just use them as-is, and it's worked just fine.


That's pretty much how I see it. S&W, LL, C&C are all sufficiently AD&D that it's easy to use the products without any real issues. Works for me....

Yes, I would buy that.  Not interested in the Pathfinder version.


Frog God Games should really do things properly IMO and publish its stuff as OSRIC versions.

I'm not sure about LL having never played or seen the rules. I understand that Dwimmermount will be LL (or am I mistaken). Has C&C changed? The 1st edition of it seemed pretty much a duplicate of the 1e AD&D PHB but without the whimsy.

So far with S&W it isn't as much about conversion as it is about expanded the game information covered. Again my experience is primarilly in using the S&W version of Tome.

Labyrinth Lord is just B/X D&D with a few other bits and pieces thrown in.

I've found myself picking up numerous free/cheap PDFs via RPG or Drivethru websites recently, for S&W, LL, C&C and having sufficient information and compatibility to be able to read it as though it'd play in a campaign styled on AD&D without much drama.

But yes, I agree with Sardan, if FGG put out a S&W Tsar or other major rework item, I'd be in!

C&C hasn't changed materially for purposes of this particular discussion.

But compared to AD&D, C&C has always had some fundamental systemic differences that promote a slightly different play style: Saving throw balance, the SIEGE engine, and the default xp system not being primarily based on treasure acquisition.
