Has anybody tried to adapt BR to the Darkover books?
The game seems perfect and Aldis is reminiscent of darkovan atmospheres....
One problem may be that Darkovan psychics, especially when equipped with matrix crystals, are a lot more powerful than BR adepts. However, the most powerful are the high nobility (Comyn), and you could just limit those to NPCs - and make large matrix crystals prohibitively expensive.
You should also consider making the psionic talent a background feat that must be taken at level 1 - ESP seems very hereditary on Darkover.
IIRC, the Compact fobids any kind of ranged weapons, including bows. This limits some character concepts.
Anyway, you should be able to find a lot of support on these Darkover pages:
