Modern Backdrops is a unique and exciting resource for the Modern d20 System gamemaster. This collection offers you a series of well-developed cities, each with its own unique history, information on the important people and places, maps of specific locations, and plot hooks to help jump-start your campaign and get your players involved. These cities were created with the FX game in mind, but the information provided for each city should be sufficient for any style of game to be set, successfully, inside the city limits.

Some example maps:

I picked up Modern Backdrops last night, and I have to say that I'm very impressed. The maps are well done. The content from cover to cover raises the bar on what game writers such as myself need to be thinking about when they begin to write setting in [...]

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.
