Modern Dispatch (#1): Alternate Armors

ZIP File

Many people have asked for armor in d20 Modern to be handled as Damage Reduction. This is the way many games (especially modern ones) have handled armor, but d20 Modern's designers chose to make armor function as it did in d20 Fantasy, providing an armor bonus (but renamed defense).

However with armor bonuses from class, armor as Damage Reduction seems a natural fit and is presented here as an optional rule.

Worth checking out, but I would never buy it. Its a list of modern armor for d20 games with a Damage Resistance and a smaller Defense Bonus. In someways this is a more accurate portrail of the principles behind bullet proof armor. [...]

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.
