To do: Conversion of the various types of magic in the Player's Handbook


To do:

  • Conversion of all D&D spells should NOT be attempted, as this way lies madness and it would be highly redundant anyway. Instead only "iconic" D&D spells - such as Magic Missile - should be converted, as well as spells that would fill existing holes in the GURPS spell system - such as "Mass Heal" spells, for example.
  • Since D&D has a large number of summonable monsters, the energy cost for summoning them should be calculated.
