Description:

Posthuman: The Definitive D20 Guide to Human Augmentation is a 29-page resource that expands the options for technologically enhanced characters. The new rules here are designed to be compatible with the standard rules for futuristic D20 roleplaying, and you should have no trouble adding them to your game.

Here’s what you get:

The Posthuman Template Class: Instead of using a fixed template that adjusts a character’s effective level, we present the concept of a template class: a five level option that allows you to choose how powerful you want posthumans to be and whether or not you want to abide by the standard drawbacks for augmented humans. If you don’t like the idea of penalizing characters for their enhancements but you don’t want to trash game balance, this is the section for you.

Biotech: Next, we’ll look at biotechnology and how it can replace or augment characters’ natural abilities. You can use these rules with characters from standard classes. Like cybernetics, biotech comes with its own complications, keeping biologically engineered characters from running roughshod over play balance. To transcend these drawbacks, just plug in the Posthuman class.

Nanotech: Nanotechnology seems to have an unlimited potential to augment human ability. The rules in this section present a modest array of nanotech enhancements that, like biotech, come with drawbacks to balance out their benefits. Again, you can plug in the Posthuman class to mitigate or remove these restrictions.

Posthuman Characters: Finally, we present three enhanced characters as a proof of concept and to give you ready made enemies, allies and player characters.


Posthuman: The Definitive D20 Guide to Human Augmentation is written by Malcom Sheppard (author of several supplements for White Wolf's Mage: The Ascension, among other products) and is the premiere release in Adamant Entertainment's TERMINAL IDENTITY line of Cyberpunk-genre products.

An RPG Resource Review: After a brief run-through of the contents, the Introduction explains that modifications to the very person are part and parcel of many future and especially cyberpunk genres. Sometimes they are background, sometimes they occupy [...]

Disclaimer: The art and layout of the books in the Terminal Identity line offends my sense of aesthetics. The art is photo-realistic and appears to be digitally retouched images. This style of artwork has never appealed to me and I feel it detracts from [...]

"Definitive" D20 Guide to Human Augmentation? Hardly. Incomplete and lacking in detail as well as lacking in any original information (other than a debatably useless prestige class) is more like it. A waste of money. QUALITY: Po [...]

I'm quite pleased with what I've seen in Posthuman. This is something that D20 has needed, and I'm sure I'll find it applicable to the D20 Modern, and D20 Future gaming that I'm doing. I also feel it will be useful with the Fourth Millenium setting materi [...]

Though the idea of the level template is not new (it is found in Genjitsu's Shaping the Self), this is an excellent approach to different power levels. There is an nice selection of cybertech, biotech and nanotech. If you want to use any of these three, [...]

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.
