Converting BECMI to 5E levels

by KtA

I think the simple way to do it is:
levels 1-7 are the same,
from 8th to 25th level, 2 BECMI levels convert to 1 5E level,
above 25th level, 3 BECMI levels convert to 1 5E level.

BECMI: 5E
1-7: Same
8-9: 8
10-11: 9
12-13: 10
14-15: 11
16-17: 12
18-19: 13
20-21: 14
22-23: 15
24-25: 16
26-28: 17
29-31: 18
32-34: 19
35-36: 20

This makes the four 5E tiers match up pretty well with the B/E/C/M level divisions.

So under this, Name Level is 8th level, CM1 (for levels 15+) converts to being for levels 11+, and King Ericall (28th level) becomes 17th level.
