Welcome. Here is my attempt at converting Wraith: The Oblivion 20th Anniversary Edition to Chronicles of Darkness rules. This is an ongoing experiment that has not yet been playtested. See additional sheets below for Arcanoi. Use it as is, or use it as a starting point for your own conversion. This document is sure to evolve. Leave feedback in the comments or email me at callishka@gmail.com. --GC Fournier

Opposing with Willpower
18
When the old rules call for a Resisted Willpower roll, or say that the Difficulty for a roll is the target's Willpower, use the following modifications
19
● If the number of successes on the roll is an important factor, use the rules for CofD Resistance. Subtract either the target's Resolve or Composure from the dice pool before rolling. Resolve resists powers that affect the intellect, memory, or mental focus. Composure resists powers that affect emotions, desires, or social interaction.
20
● If what matters is just whether the roll succeeds or not, use the rules for CofD Contested actions. The target rolls their Resolve + Composure and the character for whom the most successes are rolled wins the contest.

Regaining Pathos
24
● A wraith can roll one of their Passion ratings at a time
that Passion has been explored (+1 if the wraith
is experiencing the Passion and no bonus die when observing others experiencing the Passion), with each success
granting one point of Pathos.
25
● Once per session a wraith can roll their Memoriam rating, with each success granting one point of Pathos

See also http://www.shamzam.net/blog/downloads/world-of-darkness/ for a 1st Edition nWoD conversion pdf created by NTam and Selpoivre. Their update of the Passions and Fetters systems may work better than this. The website is in French, but the pdf is in English. Look for the text "Aide de jeu : Wraith le Néant version MdT 2" to find the download link.
