I've been meaning to return to Tri Tac's wonderful Fringeworthy game for ages, but these days my group really doesn't have the time to grapple with a very detailed, slightly clunky and complicated RPG. The obvious answer: convert it to Mercenaries, Spies and Private Eyes.
Much of the source material is useful without any stats, although I do need to add some equipment, creatures etc. In particular, the key alien threat of the setting, the malevolent shapeshifting Mellor, needs a solid presentation; most of the other creature encounters will be fine using the lazy GM's friend, the Monster Rating from Tunnels & Trolls.
First step, a simple character sheet.
If I put together anything coherent enough to share (my GM notes are mostly fragmentary and purely useful to me) I'll post it here.
