Modern Dispatch (#70): Genre Templates

ZIP File

This issue of Modern Dispatch introduces the Genre Template system: A plug-and-play method of quickly emulating any genre with the D20 Modern rules system. Instead of using a supplement which adds layers of detail to the already comprehensive D20 Modern rules, just add a template to all significant characters (PCs and NPCs), to reflect the common abilities and "rules" of the genre!

This issue presents five Genre Templates, including Wuxia, Spaghetti Western, Hong Kong Gunplay, 80s Action Movie and Vigilante Cop.

I usually don't comment on products, I just take 'em and go. But the genre templates are AWESOME!!! I loved the entire idea of it. The extra feats in some genres may make characters a bit over-powered, but since they cover all of the significant charac [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
