Hi, I was wondering if anyone had come up with a way to combine the World of Warcraft characters and monsters with the Descent gameplay/combat? I really enjoy both games but I would love to be able to use the more robust WoW characters with Descent's more tactical combat system/dungeons. Thanks!

I'm pretty sure the official WoW RPG game is based on the D20 system, that should help you working out equivalent stats etc

I've thought of this too, but there is a big but:

If you want to use Descent's combat system you'll have to completely abandon WoW board's combat system. If you want to do this, you have to remake all the characters, and all the spells, and all the items to fit the new system.

And the fantastic level-up system and the feel of customizing your character in WoW board is intricately tied to the combat system that simply can't be played on a dungeoncrawl level as it doesn't adjust at all for Line of Sight or distance or intricate movement, you'll have to come up with something that most game designers would kill to have come up with.

I think he just wants to use the minis from WoW in descent. I started doing a similar thing but can't find where I left it.

Ah, well that won't prove to be any problem at all. Just invent some awesome stats for the minis, some stats for the characters and go game!

I guess making up some stats for the characters and monsters would work but I was looking/hoping for the type of system that keeps the level and skill progression from WoW like Zimeon suggested.

Yeah, I know, which is why I came here hoping that someone else had already done it

What if you give stats to monsters and had a combat system in a pvp way?
