So, yeah…just occurred to me today. And of course, in the 'graphy page, Burning Sands is listed as a game reference for BE. Seems obvious then, to use some things from it to run Burning Sands, right?
I mean, exchange combat skills for Close Combat in general (since in the books, everyone seemed to be trained with everything anyway), keep the lifepaths and other stuff otherwise intact from BSJ, then add in the newer World Burning from BE (think about it - factions would be the Sisterhood, The 9, Splinter Religious groups, the Syndicate, Rebel Houses, Houses Minor…).
Then play it out straight. The Jihad is trying to invade, the Nobles are defending. Seems EASY to me (I’m sure I’m missing something, but the base idea is sound, no?).
Anyone done it before? How’d it go?
