    Default Dragon Age d20

    Hey, everybody, I want to ask if anybody would be interested in working on a Dragon Age d20 using Star Wars SAGA as the base rules.

    I know there is an official Dragon Age game, but I've looked at it and don't really like it, and I don't think it captures the feel.

    So, here is what I envision. Talents from the game would remain as talents in SW SAGA, for the most part, although a fair few would be feats. The base classes would be Warrior, Mage, Rouge, and Noble. So is anyone interested at all?

    While I'm currently working on a BESM campaign, I think Saga is the perfect system to make a Dragon Age game. The Talent system is very similar to that of Dragon Age, and even the force power system fits mages very well.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. So would you like to help work on it. I'll get the mage up later today.

    I certainly could review stuff, as I like Saga and Dragon Age very much. But as said, I'm currently in the middle of building a setting and adjusting a system myself, so I'm not available for any writing stuff.

    That works out well with me. I just realized how busy I am too with HP d20 as well. I guess I'm just in a homebrewing frenzy.

    Why would noble be a class? The nobles you can be/fight in Dragon Age belong to the classes that are classes in the game.

    One thing to consider is how close to the game you want the classes to be.

    At the very least, you need 4 races (human, elf, dwarf, qunari), 3 classes, 12 prestige classes, and probably all the spells.
    However, I think it's a better idea not to emulate all the warrior and rogue abilities and instead stick to what feats and talents can be salvaged from SWS. It's less work and also less likely to completely screw the system up.
    Skills I would leave almost completely untouched, expect for removing those that are directly related to high tech equipment.
    What's left is weapons and armor, which shouldn't take more than 20 minutes.

    While nobles aren't a class in DA, I think the class would work quite well in an d20 game. But then, you'd also have to provide four specializations for them.
