Has anyone figured out how to turn the Road Hog background table into something akin to the new AtB Background, education & Skills?

Unless somebody else can come up with a better formula, I'll start converting them over. The best thing I can recommend is comparing those classes with old TMNT books that were post-1989 or so.
Note these would be house rules...

That would work, I appreciate it. I looked at the new AtB Education, Background & Skills, flipped back to the old Road Hogs book, and hit a creative brick wall <chuckle>

Pretty cool. Road Hogs was probably my favorite ATB supplement.

The "Relatives & Connections" I couldn't think of much beyond what I had posted, and most of the bonuses are modified from the AtB Book.

Ah son of a gun... That's incomprehensible to me!
Darnit. I have no frame of reference. I need AtB2.

I really can't recommend AtB2 highly enough. With expanded animal powers and psionics, as well as Vestigial Disadvantages that you can take to give your character more BIO-E, it represents a quantum leap improvement in mutant animal character creation, IMHO.

*sighs*

In the meantime, I don't suppose anybody has any recommended formulae for converting High School, College and Military skills to the skill programs of HU2 and Revised TMNT? Just in the meantime.

Actually, would those New System classes and backgrounds be compatible (advise me, please, I'm open on this) with the new ATB2 system? Or should they go through, say, even more conversion than it takes to bring Old System to New System? I mean, the setting info is still good and relevant... but the backgrounds, even in later stuff, seem so different.

High School, College and Military skills I treat as if the person had a High School or College education, meaning you can only pick (High School for example) X selection of skills.

And yes, I believe they are compatible with the new AtB. They're set up exactly like the backgrounds in the new AtB. I converted them from the original Road Hogs to the new AtB system.[/quote]

I think it's that X that bothers me.

Ok, to clarify the 'X', if you get 3 High School Skills (where X=3, 3=X, etc.), according to HU2 (the newest one) and it's rule on High School Education, you would be able to pick from Domestic, Physical, Rogue, Technical or W.P. Ancient.

Oops, forgot to mention the College & Military Skills. College, treat it appropriate (if the character/player meets the requirements, I'd see nothing wrong with them taking Medical Doctor), and Military you can select from either/both of Espionage & Military categories.
