Title: Does D20 Work Across All Campaigns?
Post by: Shiftkitty on February 08, 2016, 02:09:08 PM
Does the D20 system work across all of the various campaign worlds published for it? What I mean is, if you have D20 Modern, Gamma World D20 and D&D 3e, do they mesh seamlessly? Is the damage from, say, a Winchester 30/30, a bastard sword, and whatever GWD20 uses comparable? Or are there conversions that need to be done?

The d20 system was never meant to be cross compatible. Each d20 game was meant to be customized in possibly incompatible ways while keeping the basic big-picture the same.

That said, I don’t think you’d have too much trouble mixing-and-matching.

While I spent a lot of time trying to patch bits from different d20 games into my own mashup, I gave up on d20 before playing more than D&D3e and a little Star Wars. So, I can’t say for sure.
