Thaumatech: Modern Magic Items

ZIP File
"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

Sir Arthur C. Clarke.

"...and vice versa."


Thaumatech is a collection of 200 magic items for use with the d20 Modern System, including 100 magic rings and 100 miscellaneous wondrous items. Thaumatech explores the fusion of magic and technology with a spirit of fun-- you don't think that characters in modern-era supernatural d20 games should be thrilled to find the same old +2 battle-axes and masterwork breastplates? We agree!

Slip into a pair of daredevil dress shoes, research a ritual on your e-spellbook, whack a few villains with your trusty Tesla cane, and upgrade your desktop PC with a thaumatech computer processor! Each item is described in detail and arranged on random item generation tables (organized alphabetically and by purchase DC). Furthermore, all 200 items in the book are organized into a single huge table (by purchase price DC) for maximum GM utility and spur-of-the-moment modern treasure generation.

Thaumatech is actually two PDFs in one-- a color version in landscape layout for screen use and a black-and-white version in traditional letter layout for easy printing. All this for just $5.00-- 38 pages of arcane d20 Modern fun, backed by the Cryptosnark promise of lifetime free revisions, replacements, and updates! Review: A- (91%) "The whole work, in and of itself is a winner in my eyes. Scott gave me what I wanted, and I appreciate it. The vast majority of the content is original, functional, and amusing. These FX items are sure to breathe some new life into your magical d20 Modern campaign."

Put Even More Magic Up Your Sleeve: If you enjoyed Thaumatech, you'll want to check out the frankly excellent set of fantasy d20 PDFs that inspired it-- the 101 Collection from Ronin Arts!

Simple and useful. Thaumatech contains about 200+ items. Great resource for high-FX or very low-FX. I'd call it a "must have" resource for a long campaign. Good layout with both screen and print versions available. Well organized a [...]

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.
