Modern Maladies (D20 Modern)

Watermarked PDF

Modern Maladies provides an in-depth look into the hazards of disease and illness in a d20 Modern campaign. Some of the physical ailments presented in this product derive from pure fiction, but many also exist in real-life - including biological weapons, chronic conditions, and worldwide epidemics. For the authentic diseases, defining their effects in game terms can never fully characterize their impact on actual sufferers of such conditions. Even so, most GMs should find Modern Maladies useful for introducing new challenges and realistic hazards for their modern heroes to encounter.

This PDF contains 30 real world diseases, 10 fantasy/sci-fi diseases, several templates for monsters created by disease, and the Advanced Class: CDC Specialist.

Once again Neil Spicer writes a good product. As no other d20 publisher has a book or pdf devoted entirely to diseases (that I know of), this is a needed resource. It first looks at rules (new and old) for diseases and then lists about 40 real 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.
