Zhuge

(no subject)

The curtains of fate have parted, revealing to me that I will be dragooned into running a game of Rifts sometime in the distant future. While much of the setting in Rifts is quite appealing, the game mechanics seemed unnecessairly complicated. Has anybody attempted or seen a decent d20 conversion for Rifts? Now I know a lot of people on this board scoff at the mention of d20, but it's something the would-be players are already comfortable with, and I don't want to make them learn a new system from ground up.

I'm looking to focus more on the cyberpunk side, rather than a game which emphasizes giant robots and insanely powerful magic creatures running around the mutliverse doing enormous amounts of mega-damage to one another. Thoughts?
