In other cases, conversion guides are written by other players who have done this before. {{Rifts}} and other Palladium games are usually played in converted form, since the Palladium system is unpopular (although doing so publicly often leads to cease-and-desist orders from Palladium, who do ''not'' take kindly to the practice at all). When players convert games, they often use the GURPS, HEROSystem, and TabletopGame/{{FUDGE}} roleplaying systems, since these systems are specifically built to accommodate conversions.

In the context of tabletop RoleplayingGames, a '''Rules Conversion''' is an attempt to run a game built for one roleplaying system in another roleplaying system. In some cases, this is supported officially, with conversion guides or sourcebooks published with the original game creators' approval. Some of these works only provide the converted material from the original game, while others may include rules and guidelines to help players convert material to the new system themselves - and some do both. Numerous official conversions from other games have been released as {{GURPS}} or TabletopGame/D20System sourcebooks.
