5E Modern

11 posts in this topic

So I'm thinking about trying to use the 5e rules for a more modern/no magic setting, that will eventually have some magic/alien tech elements.  I'm just wondering how to prune back the classes and stuff to a no magic setting.  Fighters and Rogues should work for the most part.  Might needs something for people who want to play an intelligent character with lots of skills.  the skill list would also need updated to include things like computer use, or would computers and cell phones be tools?  Definitely need to include the modern weaponry, although maybe not have everyone be automatically proficient.  I know one of the play test supplements had things for modern clerics and warlocks.

The WOTC site has a few 5E modern files in the articles section.

Those are very cool.  Thanks.

 

ADD got the better of me, and I decided that is was too much trouble to download each file individually.  Have to do that some day, though.  Be nice to have a complied download in the root directory, but that is me being lazy / ADD, I admit.

Finally downloaded and sorted this all (if you want a cleaned up copy in Word, just PM me with an email address).

 

What he did with the Advanced Classes is genius.  I was trying to convert it to a new class for multi-classing, but actually throwing it into the core class is excellent - pick an advanced class at 3rd level (no restrictions) and then the advanced class adds to your normal level progression.  Very elegant solution.

I like the way the advanced classes were handles as well!  If I was running it though I'm not sure how multi-classing would work.

Simple - no multi-classing :)  That will be my rule.

So I've run 2 sessions using these modern rules and they seem to work alright, although the characters are only level 1-2 at the moment.  First level seems to be just as swingy as normal, especially with pistols doing as much damage as a great sword.  We will have to see how higher levels balance.

      Hi everyone!
       
      Today I'm back with this miniature, for a friend, that will be used in a local D&D tournament :)
       
      Feel free to give me some feedbacks!
       
      Thanks!

      I decided to start painting up minis for my various PCs
       
      -An unidentified Grenadier Halfling fighter (chain & shield) as Lvl 7 Rogue, Magnus Perrywhimple (soon to be con only)
      -Mystic Theurge as Lvl 1 Monk/ Lvl 1 Rogue Stede Blackthumb (Acolyte of Candlekeep),  on an acquisition mission to atone for learning and copying ritual magic without permission
      -Juliette, as Lvl 1 Half Drow Sorceress, Grz'zilda (the Ghastly Gourmet) who was rescued from Hillsfar and while hiding her heritage is now adventuring.
      I've done a few passes at a few things. But not full base coats yet. Photos later.

      Known as the Prince of Pleasure, Graz’zt is a creature of debauchery and desire who strives to accumulate more power. He delights in ostentatious finery and pageantry, sating his decadent desires with subjects and consorts alike. He particularly relishes the spectacle of a self-indulgent person’s life collapsing into ruin. (description from the box)
       
      The plastic on the sword was all kinds of messed up. It had some kind of weird film on it or some kind of layer of plastic flash. It was for a friend and I tried my best to trim it away, but it still bothers me. The rest of the model I am happy with. As with the previous dragonkin rogue model I painted, I am glad I tried something different besides grey and brown for the ground.

      Hi all! I've been a fan of Matt Colville for awhile and his Running the Game series for awhile now and thought I'd spread the goodness here.
       
      For the uninitiated, this series of YouTube videos is aimed at newer DMs who are looking to start running D&D for the first time (especially at the beginning of the series), but there's plenty of good stuff for DMs of any experience level to mine. I've found them incredibly instructive for how I run and think about my game to be sure.
       
      And, while there's a focus on D&D, there's certainly material that is transferable to any game you're running. Anyway, have a gander (note: this isn't the first of the series, but rather the first of his I saw, which is about railroad campaigns vs the sandbox)!

      I just started painting miniatures and am really excited how this one came out. I spent quite a while(maybe 40 hours or so) painting this while watching my hubby play Witcher 3. Any suggestions or tips for a new painter? I still need to find a base for this guy!

      77343: Goroloth 
      Army Painter Primer
      Vallejo Game Paints
