I have the campaign boxset! :D

But, what do I do with it? I don't have any AD&D material and I only run and play the Storyteller and Storytelling systems from white wolf?

Mage conversion

There used to be a Mage: the Ascension conversion of Planescape out there ~2008. It may have even been hosted on Planewalker, IIRC.

This is a good start, based on Mage. Old World of Darkness, of which Mage was one of the best to read and one of the hardest to run, but its focus on reality being a function of human belief makes it the obvious choice for Planescape. You can probably expect some conversion work no matter what you do, but that's honestly part of what I enjoy about Planescape at this point. And the setting's focus on interaction and ideas means two things-- one, Storyteller/ing is a good fit; two, you probably don't have to reskin every enemy and mechanic. So there's that.

Additionally, most of

Additionally, most of Planescape's material is setting and story. It's fairly rules-lite. So you could just throw your WoD characters (vampires, werewolves, and whatever) whole-cloth into Sigil and run from there. Just treat them like standard primes (with weird powers, I guess) and hash out NPC/planar stats based on the descriptions in the books.

After reading through a fair

After reading through a fair number of reviews as well as skimming a bit of the basic rules online, I have decided to get my hands on the 5e PHB, I have a strange love/hate relationship with the d20 system as a whole, long story short, the reviews make me WANT to run and play 5e, any advice or should I just get my hands an a copy of the AD&D material?
