Halo Dungeons and Dragons

OP Slime Slayer

I am really a fan of Halo, and I am getting into Dungeons and Dragons, so I thought, why not combine them both?
As it is based off the idea of DnD (5th edition) it needs many items, abilities etc. I removed spells as, while it would be cool, Spartans don't use them.
The setting, as many of the players (my guinea pigs) don't really know the story of Halo Reach-5 the Dnd campaign will go along the lines of Halo 1-3, with the ending being similar to Halo 3's, meaning room for another campaign. They will be playing a squad of spartans, so it's almost like a fanfic where Blue team goes on the Halo adventures.
I also removed classes as there aren't sorcerer or druid spartans, and replaced it with specialities. Each player can pick 2 and they can overlap. I've made this spreadsheet ( https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1RpYWWX5PW0o4wdB9c0E4mo0bxcwJNphtYTFFTZfNUxg/edit?usp=sharing ) (also ignore the weapon stats, they will be done later) that details the specialities' abilities as the characters level up, as well as something I have deemed, 'combos', which are special abilities that combine the two specialities. For example, Heavy Weapons Spec. and Tech Spec. would have a turret as their combo for level 5 unlock. As there are two specialities per player, there are now 2 types of level: player level and spec. level. Player level ranks as they normally would, in this campaign it is whenever they pass a certain milestone in the story (eg. destroying the first Halo). Spec levels alternate, and sometimes dont rank up, as the player does. Say the player is level 2, spec #1 is level 1 and spec #2 is also level 1. Say however, they are level 3, spec #1 (their choice of which order their specialisations are in) is level 2 and spec #2 is level 1. Level 5 and 16 are levels when they unlock their combos, the combinations of both specs.
Thank you for putting in the time to make this project better. Comment below if there are any questions and on the google spreadsheet with ideas

I really want to get into DnD my friends are into it alot! But now that youve done this and making a project out of it its making me want to play DnD even more!! This is really good and like Dib said are you still doing this project? or is it still under development? :)
I'm in this role playing community that makes me feel like its DnD, not with the jetpacks and all but definitely everything else.
Hey Guys since I last posted I've found a Halo Dnd role playing game. It was painstaking to convert the manual into black writing and a white background so I could print it off, but I got there. Don't ask me why I printed all 317pages lol. But anyway here is where I found it, a person named Vorked created it so if you like it let him know. oh and will be testing this game on the 6th Sept, So will let you know how it goes. :)
