B/X Conversion Notes

Want to convert B/X monsters quick and dirty to GURPS? Use these notes:

  • HT = HD x5 or x10

  • Dodge = 6 to 10, estimate
  • Damage = 1d3 or 1d6 per HD or by weapon (swing = +20%)
  • Special Damage = 1d3 or 1d6 per HD (or 5 character points per HD for a power)
  • DR = estimate based on armor, or (roll-over AC - 10) / 2
