Conversions

Modern:

Literacy is now free; consider adding Appearance, Charisma, or raising some of those level-8 stats. If magic doesn't exist, Llewellyn probably becomes a traveling musician of some kind, and all his skills/stats go up with the points from spells. Change TLs, skills and languages to fit (unless he's a hard-core SCAdian . . .

Near Future:

Literacy is now free; consider the same things as for Modern. Llewellyn might be into serious rock now, and have some modest cyberware - most likely an interface to a music synthesizer. Adjust skills, languages, and TLs to fit.

Space:

Literacy is free, so go look at those stats or Appearance. Consider adding free-fall. Some of those languages will likely turn into alien languages.
