D20 Modern Q&A, Examples and "Lessons"

Postby Seance71 » Sat Oct 06, 2012 10:03 am

Have any questions of D20 Modern, I'll answer them to the best of my ability. I'll also give examples and try to teach the basics of the game. Hope I can help you understand any questions you have.

Well I guess my question is how do we make a character?

That, and how exactly do you play and what do you do?

What classes are there to play, and how do they effect the game?

There aren't really 'classes' as much as there are 'professions'. Any profession in the modern world is fair game. You adjust your stats to reflect your professions / hobbies. As far as race goes, you can pick any modern race: Caucasian, Japanese, African, Russian, etc.

I played a low-rider driving, shotgun wielding Mexican gang thug in my last d20 modern campaign.

Well, yes. But to get more specific, there are Strong Hero, Fast Hero, Tough Hero, Dedicated hero, Smart Hero and Charismatic hero. These are the six basic classes to choose from. How to make a character? Pretty simple, first you roll 4D6, re-roll 1s and 2s. Add the top three numbers and that's your ability score, similar to DnD. that's basicly it. It's DnD, Modernized.

The 6 base classes in d20 Modern are built around the 6 abilities: Strength (Strong Hero), Dexterity (Fast Hero), Constitution (Tough Hero), Intelligence (Smart Hero), Wisdom (Wise Hero), and Charisma (Charismatic Hero). You can then choose an Occupation which gives you maybe a bonus feat, or extra class skills, or skill bonuses, and so on. It was an interesting take on the d20 mechanics and it's too bad the system didn't do better than it did. I kinda liked it.

I'll be hosting "Practice" D20 Modern Adventures in the Game room today and every Saturday... If I can.

Well Saturday is my normal Pathfinder game night, so you'll likely lose me on those nights, but I'd like to learn to play anyway.
