Lords of Pandius 04 -- Immortal Ability Score Range Conversion

After all my thoughts on the prior posts in mind,  I've created the following conversion approach for the individual ability scores of Mystaran Immortals into the Lords of Olympus rankings.

There's still some fine-tuning necessary, since:
  • D&D hit points figure heavily into the durability of a given immortal
  • there are four 'ability scores' in Lords of Olympus, while there are the classic six ability scores in D&D
  • there are a lot of Mystaran Immortal abilities that may or may not have Lords of Olympus equivalents (like the Aura ability)
  • quite a number of Mystaran Immortals will devolve into Heroic and sometimes even Mortal range!
That last bit can be addressed by reiterating that Immortals of Mystara are not quite 'gods' either. That and the fact that these Immortals are NPCs anyway, and not likely to get into the scrapes that PC Immortals will get into. And possibly that they have other secrets (like powerful Olympian artifacts hidden from the sight of other Immortals) that compensate for this arguably 'fatal' level of ability.

That's my side of things. Let me know what you think, my friend.
