5e x 5 Modern Backgrounds

This seventh expansion book since the original five fantasy core books built for the Future and Modern Equipment books (wealth systems). It requires the basic core found in the 5e x 5 Combat & Conditions from the system which is a d20 converted to d100 system. It also requires either or both 5e x 5 Future Characters or 5e x 5 Characters (fantasy) which contain modern or future weapons and tools.  This book adds modern character background occupations.

15 categories, 40 types of background occupations, and over 100 specific modern backgrounds are included in this book. It may be used with the modern genre settings or mixed-time-period settings.

If monsters will be used, currently the 5e x 5 Monsters, 5e x 5 Future Robots, and 5e x 5 Future Mecha contain encounter stats or information to build encounters.

The 5ex5 Modern Backgrounds explores modern backgrounds and includes suggested starting fantasy and future classes (recommended modern classes are planned to be added in an update when the modern classes are finished).

Example of backgrounds

Construction Worker

Newspaper Writer

Bounty Hunter

Core Books (two column versions available)

Spells has a background scroll version.

Characters has some border background graphics.

These current versions do not have any other images.

A. Two-column

This version was our first upgrade which uses a combination of narrower margins and two-columns to compact the text significantly. There are neither illustrations nor artwork.

B. Commercially available art

This version uses commercially available art Peter found from several sources. Because of this, you may see art pieces found in other works. It uses creative commons, clip art, and public domain art.

C. Co-author Art version

It has all the features of the previous version with art found by Peter and also includes art by Ken of monsters that were not chosen or available with the commercially available art. Those pieces make this product a more unique version of the monster book.

The d20 into d100 conversion project

In this project, we sought to increase the available d100 OGL content. This converts an alternative core that can be used by those that like rolling two ten sided dice for their RPG gaming.

Our method was to change SRDv5.1, a few d20 OGL sources, some PRD, and a little SRDv3.5 from ability scores, skills, and saves that are d20 based (from values 1 to 30 into values 1 to 150), bonuses that are d20 based (from values -5 to +10 into values -25 to +50), and while preserving the multiple sided damage and hit points system. thousands of numbers were converted.

Format
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.
