Hack the Matrix (D20 Modern)


The use of computers and computerized network systems in the last 20 years has changed how everything is done in this new age of information technology. Breaking into a computer system has become as common place in this new information age as drinking a glass of water. The ability for anyone from the age of 10 to 99 is becoming skilled in the use of computers and with that anyone can learn the skills to 'hack' into any type of computer system. Computers like characters can be customized to do the most generic and simplistic things to computers that can do very complex, very specific goals. If you need to gain access to find out how much money the lead drug dealers in the world have or how to make homemade chicken soup, some computer somewhere has that information. The new rules created in this sourcebook are intended to be compatible with the standard rules for D20 Modern, and you can easily integrate them in to your local game. In this Sourcebook there are:

  • New rules for Accessing / Hacking into a Computer Network System.
  • Nearly a dozen all-new Computer Terminals and systems including Series P6 Terminal and Virtual Reality Suit.
  • 7 All-new Operating Systems including an Advanced Artificial Intelligence Operating System.
  • Nearly 20 Computer Terminals Modifications including Fiber Optic Circuitry, Laser Modem and Removable Hard Drive.
  • Over 50 All-new computer programs including Attack v1.0, Force Crash, Pig v2.0 and Skeleton Key.
  • 8 All new Feats including Co-Op Hack and Improved Firewall.

This 18 page PDF is just the sort of thing needed for GMs to add depth to any great d20 Modern campaign world, including Haven: City of Violence and Haven: Full Metal Zero.

This product is also available as a softcover bookshelf edition direct from Louis Porter Jr. Design's Website.

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.
