Genre Plugin: Techno-Thriller


System: Modern d20 OGL


Optional rules, feats, a new talent tree and a new advanced class for Modern d20 gaming.

Adaptable rules sets, like the Modern d20, aren't always tailored for replicating specific genres from fiction and film. The Genre Plugin series provides additional rules for modeling the tropes of a particular genre.

Techno-thrillers are a diffuse genre of speculative fiction and film that deal with everything from counter terrorism to highly detailed examinations of bleeding edge miltary technology and tactics. This genre plugin deals primarily with the unique brand of stealth and tactical action found in techno-thrillers and their video game offshoots.

It includes:

  • Simple optional rules for more lethal firefights, suppressive fire, and cover fire.
  • 15 feats, including Breach and Clear, Combat Rappelling, Tactical Stealth, and many more...
  • The Tactical Teamwork talent tree.
  • A new advanced class: The Operator.

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.
