A conversion is taking elements from one game and putting them into another. Types include:

  • System to system: Taking a game mechanic from one game and adapting it to another.
  • Setting to system or setting conversion: Using the setting for one game with the rules to another.
  • 'Setting to setting or stealing stuff: Using story elements from one game in another game.

Conversion necessarily includes a certain amount of house rules to make it work.

In miniatures, conversion means modifying a figure.
