Choice and Blood (D20 Modern)

Choice and Blood (D20 Modern)

ZIP File

On a quiet day, an abortion clinic is indistinguishable from any medical building. Some are lone, freestanding buildings; others are just another office in a professional building or cluster of medical suites. Many abortion clinics are freestanding by necessity, because of the religious beliefs of potential landlords, or simply out of fear that having a clinic on the premise of a medical complex would put other patients at risk. It’s not an unreasonable fear: hundreds of abortion clinics have been vandalized or firebombed since the mid 1980s.On protest days, the clinic becomes a battlefield. Pro-life protesters ring the clinic, chanting prayers, singing psalms, holding grotesque signs depicting dismembered fetuses.

Tactics range from peaceful protest and passive resistance to mob violence. Parents bring their true-believing children to prayer vigils, while elderly Catholic ladies pray the Rosary for the unborn. Handsome college age pro-lifers stage die-ins, falling to the street and playing dead to draw media attention and block traffic. Haggard reformers hand out pamphlets and attempt to convert passerby, while ‘sidewalk consolers’ scream at the women walking into the clinic not to kill their babies. Pro-choice counter demonstrators add to the noise and chaos. Attempting to drown out the pro-lifer’s slogans with high volume feminist chants, the unruly DMZ established around the clinic quickly becomes too noisy to hear anything quieter or a bullhorn or a police siren. Pro-choice volunteers, easily recognizable in brightly colored safety vests escort patients and their families through the crush of protesters.

This supplement has all new materials including:

  • History of Abortion in America
  • Protest tactics and strategies for Pro-Life and Pro-Choice supporters
  • New Advanced Class: The Abortion Provider,
  • New Intermediary Classes: Clinic Defender, Sidewalk Counselor, Blogger, Irregular and ER Intern,
  • Campaign Styles: The Medical Campaign vs. the Abortion
  • Nearly 20 new medical and political feats including Flash Mob, Medical Immortality, Reconstructive Surgery and Street Demonstration.

This 24 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 Sanctuary: City of Secrets. Due to the extreme nature of this product it is for Mature Audiences only.

Picking one of – if not the single most – controversial topics in the United States to focus on, Choice and Blood is a “d20 abortion” supplement. The book presents a mixture of fluff and crunch, presented over twenty-four pages. The illustratio [...]

An interesting supplement. The cover art is awful and is the most exploitive thing about the supplement. The first section is a systemless generic treatment of abortion clinics and providers, as well as an overview of the controversy and [...]

There's, obviously, a lot of controversy surrounding this product which just goes to show how much of a hot-button issue it is. There's been a lot of criticism and hoo-hah on the net over the product without ever having seen it. This, I think, says eve [...]

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.
