Character Conversions

This page is specifically for links to character conversions I've completed. While not all of them are hosted here on Improved Initiative they all have the careful thought and finely crunched numbers that readers have come to expect from my character builds. The goal is to add two new character conversions a month, so be sure to check back often!

Game of Thrones

The Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin is one of the best-known fantasy series in print. Not only that, but its rich cast of characters has been the inspiration for countless tabletop games. If you're looking for inspiration, here are some of the bigger names in the book series.

The Avengers

My first character conversion series, these were originally lost when Yahoo! Voices closed its doors. Re-hosted and better than ever, here's how to assemble your dream team in Golarion.

Slashers, Serial Killers, and Psychopaths

Gotham Knights

Gotham City is a crowded place with so many vigilantes running about they can become hard to keep track of. For those looking to emulate the heroes of this crumbling metropolis, here are some of the most popular characters brought to life!

Badasses of History

History is full of jaw-dropping hard asses, and I thought it would be fun to do my best to recreate some of them here. These builds are one part character conversion, and one part history lesson, so strap in and find out what your history books weren't teaching you.

The Rogues Gallery

Batman is a force to be reckoned with, but so are the men and women who make up his rogues gallery. If a hero is defined by his villains, then the Dark Knight must be one of the best-defined heroes out there.

One-Off Character Conversions

This section is for characters who are either not part of a series, or whose series I won't be doing in their entirety. Some of them will be comic book characters, some of them will be from books, and some of them may be pop culture icons that transcend medium. But, you can find them right here, waiting for you.


  1. It would be cool to see some villains like for avengers ultron and for batman the joker and Harley Quinn also it would be neat to see a vision build and some X-Men or a quicksilver and scarlet witch build

  2. how about an owen from jurassic world ranger build with raptor companions?

    1. An interesting idea. I may get to something like that eventually, or use it as filler between series, but I'm trying to stick to bigger groups of conversions. Things like Batman's Rogue's Gallery, Heroes of Pulp (The Shadow, Green Hornet, etc.), and others are much more likely. One-offs like Own, Judge Dredd, or the Punisher may show up at some point, though.

  3. The predators would be great for hunting players

  4. How about Sol Badguy? I could probably see him as a Magus/Barbarian or something

  5. Another GOT character that would be great is Daario Naharys

  6. The Spook from the Last Apprentice.

  7. Another series you could do would be LoTR characters for Pathfinder.

  9. I know you have said that you are doubting if these conversions are reaching anyone, but I implore you to continue; they have much to offer for an aspiring gamer, I certainly like them a great deal!

    It reminds me of something they do over at Geek and Sundry, character conversions for the D&D 5th addition. They've done the Sailor Moon Scouts, Harry Potter characters, the Firefly crew and even Disney princesses.

    Speaking of princesses, while less action oriented Sansa would make for a nice addition to the GoT characters you've got now.

    If you need any other ideas (doubtful), two things that come to mind the most are Alan Moore's "The Watchmen" and the Defenders of Marvel's Netflix shows. Since you've got Punisher and Will Simpson (one of my favorite of your conversions for how unexpected it is) you could definitely expand and get a Defenders list with the likes of Brawler Luke Cage, Investigator Jessica Jones, Monk Iron Fist and Ninja Daredevil/Matt Murdock. Then you'd have plenty left over for their 'rogues gallery', like Assassin Elektra, Kilgrave (wizard of the enchantment school, psionic?) Cottonmouth, and Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin himself... who I have no idea how to convert to Pathfinder terms but would love to see it done!

    Could work to make an entire campaign set in NYC following 'the Incident'. Thanks to you.

    Please continue the great work.


  10. Im loving these conversions and use them in many of my games. Thank you so much

  11. I'd like to see a conversion of the Alchemist from Chronicles of Vidocq. He's not exactly what I'd consider a Pathfinder "Alchemist" exactly, but he would be a neat and awesome foe in an urban setting.

  12. What about the heroes from Justice League Dark: John Constantine, Madame Xanadu, Deadman... That would make for some interesting character conversions

  13. thanks for this nice information about all the episodes and characters but I have already got this information on
