Hello! I really love both of the Hellfrost settings and am looking to buy everything I can for them. Is there anything I can buy for Hellfrost and Land of Fire that doesn’t require updating to SWADE? I’m thinking of buying the Hellfrost bundle on Drivethru RPG. And possibly some physical books from a local game store here. Thanks for making such an amazing product!May 29, 2019 at 12:25 pm #10659
The current version of Hellfrost hasn’t been updated to SWADE. Wiggy has said:
There are no plans for a SWADE conversion.
There are plans for a totally revised edition of Hellfrost using the SWADE rules, though.
And also the following:
In general terms, HF is a priority, but not our top priority – that’s reserved for a different project. We’ll be starting to discuss things in more solid terms when we begin to get new art ordered over the next few months. Likely it will be 2020 before the book is out.
In the meantime, there are fan-made conversion notes availble here: My Hellfrost conversion to Adventure EditionMay 29, 2019 at 12:58 pm #10660
Thank you! I was just wondering if I could buy some stuff in print right now, maybe some stuff that isn’t super rules specific. I will buy the PDFs as I go though. Thanks for the reply!May 29, 2019 at 1:28 pm #10661amerigoVMinion
The Gazetteer and the Atlas I believe have no stats in them. When you start getting into the Expansions and its more mixed. Really, its just the players guide and how things like Magic is handled. The bundles are pretty cheap right now so you may as well pick them up and start Hellfrostin.

I bought the DTRPG Bundle! It is pretty awesome!May 30, 2019 at 7:35 pm #10665May 31, 2019 at 8:20 am #10666
Thanks @dpmcalister! I had another question. Is the Hellfrost conversion guide the only one I will need? Or would I also need the DX to SWADE conversion guide available on their website? Also will Hellfrost conversion guide work for Land of Fire? Thanks again!May 31, 2019 at 5:36 pm #10667May 31, 2019 at 6:29 pm #10668QuigsMinion
I’m actually just starting a Hellfrost campaign in Heldalund with 3 players next week. We are using SWADE as the base, and then injecting Hellfrost specific things as needed. If you ran SWADE with just the No Power Points, Multiple Languages, and Dynamic Backlash (for arcane backgrounds only) setting rules you’d be 90% covered. Then insert the Hellfrost-specific races, edges, hindrances, knowledge skills, gear and spells. Spell would likely be the most work as you’ll need power point costs and ranges may need to be tweaked, but I think someone on these forums did that already.
The Hellfrost rules for weather, overland travel, and monsters are still all very usable as is.May 31, 2019 at 6:50 pm #10669
