THE KICKSTARTER SUCCESS IS NOW AVAILABLE!

THE DEFINITIVE 5E RESOURCE FOR MODERN & SCIENCE FICTION RULES!

NOW, DOUBLE THE SIZE AND IN FULL-COLOR!

 

The original Ultramodern5 was the most successful non-fantasy ruleset for 5th Edition. This revised sourcebook doubles the content of the original, with revised rules and brand-new mechanics to customize any game.

Ultramodern5 presents races, classes, archetypes, gear, monsters, and scenarios that can be inserted into any campaign. This includes…

Cyberpunk

Espionage

Modern Warfare

Mecha

Space Opera

Steampunk

Techno-fantasy

Wild West

Create a pure science fiction setting or insert any combination of rules into your own fantasy world.

The only limit is your imagination.

THIS SOURCEBOOK INCLUDES

  • 10 new races, including aliens, robots, and mutants.
  • A new lifepath system incorporating backgrounds into an adjustable character history.
  • A revised “ladder” system, offering more customization with character creation.
  • 12 new classes, including infiltrator, medic, and sniper.
  • 26 archetypes.
  • Over 130 different firearms from pistols to plasma artillery.
  • Sci-fi inspired melee weapons.
  • New armor (over 40 new options), including exoskeletons and mechs
  • Rules for portable force fields to mimic popular video games.
  • New gear, including cybernetics (30+), vehicles (35+), and aircraft (14).
  • A complete universal giant robot/mecha construction system (25 pages).
  • A techno-magic spell system with enchanted technology, a new class, and a revised spell list.
  • Over 70 monsters, including aliens, robots, and customizable adversaries.
  • New treasure tables, including loot & shoot rules.
  • Six location maps with action scenes to include in any adventure.
  • A spacecraft combat system.
  • A customizable sci-fi dungeon map system with 30 different rooms.
  • Two new adventures—the cyberpunk/superhero Necropolis and the space horror Threshold
  • AND MUCH, MUCH MORE
FILES
The file size listed to the right is not the size of the PDF. When you purchase this product, you'll receive the PDF in standard and low-ink variations as well as hundreds of MB of maps.

Designer Note: This 2nd Edition of Ultramodern5 includes revised rules from the original and adds races, one new ladder, two new classes, many more weapons and armors, revised vehicles, new monsters, and an entirely new set of rules for spellcasting (techno-magic) and mecha construction. Additionally, the two original adventures (Invasion Proxy and Biohazard) have been replaced with two new adventures, Necropolis and Threshold. The original maps have returned along with a brand new set of sci-fi themed dungeon tiles. The page count includes these maps—the content of the game puts the page count at just under 400 pages. The purchase also includes a zipped file of all the maps in high resolution.

ALL RULES ARE FULLY COMPATIBLE WITH BASE 5TH EDITION

Insert any rules from Ultramodern5 into any existing game of any genre, including fantasy!

So my question is "So is the PDF consistently being updated with the erratas? For the propose of a new gm who wants the latest system rule, but doesn't want sift thought a bunch of extra updates. But like a software update it is a digital version. It should almost take nothing to do it but a little time. As a potential customer I know it take a little bit of extra effort to copy and paste in the correct places, but your customer will love you for it. I also know for the ones that have a Physical copy they could still download a new digi-copy and have an up to-date version on tab. Thank you for your time I look forward to hearing back from you.

On page 105, under the Grandmaster's Drunken Boxing Martial Art Discipline, it states that "You do not inflict double dice damage when scoring a critical hit; instead, you gain one additional unarmed melee attacks as part of the same action (max two attacks gained this way per turn)."

However, the final benefit of Drunken Boxing reads "After you select this discipline a third time, you gain three additional unarmed attacks with a critical hit instead of two."

So my question is, if you picked Drunken Boxing, how many extra attacks would you get with a crit if you had not picked the Discipline a third time? One or two?

Here's what their email said

This is not the email with my order information or address

Hello Ethan,

Good afternoon. Actually, I am unsure of what we are doing because I have not heard from the manufacturer on if they are sending you the replacement or sending it to us to send to you. More than likely the order of books that we have coming is just the normal retail version, and you had ordered the Alternate Artwork version. That being said, we cannot do anything until we work out with the manufacturer what is going on or you work something out with them sending you a replacement directly. It appears that you were getting quicker communication from them through DrivethruRPG, so I would suggest continuing your dialog with them and seeing if they can send you the correct replacement. It would make things a lot easier to work out by cutting out the middle man (i.e. Us). If I can be of further assistance, please let me know and have a great day!


Best Regards,...See more

PURCHASER
If your Vigor score improves to the point your modifier increases, does it retroactively improve how much asset you gain?

Either way, asset gained every level should be a minimum of 1 point. As it stands, someone with low Vigor (anything less than 12) would never be able to cast spells. If this is intentional, you should at least include wording in the magus class (and possibly the tuner race) that allows them to ignore a negative Vigor modifier for purposes of determining asset (and probably VR). Granted, most people would stick a decent stat in Vigor if they want to be a magus, but there are still some knuckle-dragging GMs out there who make people roll stats, perhaps even straight-down-the-line style.

Ugh. Now I'm shuddering in disgust just from thinking about being forced to play in such a barbaric fashion.

I do believe in a previous errata update that every instance based on an attribute is a minimum 1.
Customer avatar
Craig E September 11, 2020 4:50 am UTC
PURCHASER
That errata entry only says that the number of uses of a feature (regardless of source) should be a minimum of 1 if a stat modifier is involved in determining the number of uses. Thus, this doesn't apply to all types of features. Asset is a resource, but has no specific number of uses per short or long rest. It is, after all, spent on a permanent basis to learn spells permanently. In this regard, the magic rules in chapter 9 are even more inflexible than those laid out in the PHB for sorcerers, warlocks, bards, rangers, eldritch knights, and arcane tricksters.

Does the "Biological Engine" feat on page 215 mean you can use the normal 1 MP free action when concentrating, or does it give you a different free action that recovers 1 MP, with the feat-granted one not being subject to the normal restriction on not recovering MP while concentrating? My pedantic mindset says there's at least a couple different ways to interpret this, so I figured it was best to ask about RAI instead of going with my own interpretation.
Customer avatar
Chris D September 09, 2020 7:18 am UTC

Yes, this means with Biological Engine, you regain 2 to your vessel for free each turn.

Would the Gunslinger's One Weapon Cinematic Style and Converging Fire abilities (pg 69) apply to melee attacks made with the gun?
Customer avatar
Chris D September 07, 2020 4:44 pm UTC

Cinematic style effectively enables you to swap between melee and ranged attacks at will. Just a reminder that a weapon that offers a bonus to ranged attacks does not give you a bonus to melee attacks with that weapon. :)

Thank you very much for the clarification! I was dream building a Martial Artist with the Gun Something-Something Martial Exploit, when I saw the One Weapon Cinematic Style, and I figured I should make sure before I got too excited.
Customer avatar
Craig E September 08, 2020 3:55 pm UTC
PURCHASER
Phil, you should've led with gun-something-something, because without that, a melee attack with a gun means smashing the enemy in the head with it. When you have that exploit, however, ranged attacks within 5 feet *ALSO* count as melee attacks at the same time. This means you can use your cinematic style from gunfighter (or any other ranged attack benefits) under these conditions.

Also keep in mind that, technically, converging fire's attack bonus doesn't only apply to *ranged* attacks you make with small arms! You can even use it to smash the enemy in the head more accurately... although I would only do that if you're out of ammo, since you're probably gonna lose your proficiency bonus.

Keep in mind, having an attack that simultaneously counts as both a ranged attack and a melee attack is NOT necessarily a good thing! Among other things, you'll chew through ammo in a heartbeat. Anything that affects either type of attack applies, both positive and negative. While this is fine if there...See more

Thank you for the insights.

Yeah, a shield and lasgun is a very, very bad idea...

The character is also a Barbarian from base 5e. So he needs melee weapons that use strength to get that sweet Rage bonus.

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.
