5e x 5 OGL SRD

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $3.00

5e x 5 OGL SRD

These are minimally formatted, not illustrated, single column set of five PDF ebooks. Text only.

We are fans of d100 games.

However, there is basically only one major Open Gaming License (OGL) d100 game that is available to help create new d100 games.

So, what is the easiest way to turn 5e into a d100 stat/skill game? Multiply it by five.

Hence, this converted system we call 5e x 5.

We do preserve the combat damage and hitpoint system - which is more compatible with the other d100 systems.

Having converted the attributes, skills, and saves with the remaining time until Oct 31 deadline we added a few more OGL sources to help expand this d100 conversion. It has some PRD, 3.5e SRD, and a few other OGL sources converted to d100 mixed in.

Included are:

5e x 5 Characters PDF 224p

5e x 5 Spells PDF 231p

5e x 5 Equipment and Treasures PDF 158p

5e x 5 Combat and Conditions PDF 55p

5e x 5 Monsters PDF 408p

If you like our efforts and want to seem more conversions to d100, please contribute via Pay What You Want (PWYW) or consider one of our other RPGNow products available now listed below.

Core Books (two column versions available)

Spells has a background scroll version.

Characters has some border background graphics.

These current versions do not have any other images.

Monster book version choices


This is our one-column raw text with minimal formatting.

B. Two-column

This version was our first upgrade which uses a combination of narrower margins and two-columns to compact the text significantly. There are neither illustrations nor artwork.

C. Commercially available art

This version uses commercially available art Peter found from several sources. Because of this, you may see art pieces found in other works. It uses creative commons, clip art, and public domain art.

D. Co-author Art version

It has all the features of the previous version with art found by Peter and also includes art by Ken of monsters that were not chosen or available with the commercially available art. Those pieces make this product a more unique version of the monster book.

In addition, depending on the demand for this version, new paintings may be added in the future.

The d20 into d100 conversion project

In this project, we sought to increase the available d100 OGL content. This converts an alternative core that can be used by those that like rolling two ten sided dice for their RPG gaming.

Our method was to change SRDv5.1, a few d20 OGL sources, some PRD, and a little SRDv3.5 from ability scores, skills, and saves that are d20 based (from values 1 to 30 into values 1 to 150), bonuses that are d20 based (from values -5 to +10 into values -25 to +50), and while preserving the multiple sided damage and hit points system. thousands of numbers were converted.

Thank you, to all those that downloaded and especially those that contributed to the 5e x 5 d20 to d100 conversion project in this first month of open access.

Updated 5e x 5 Future Characters v1.01 has the newly converted Mutations, which could probably be used in a superhero type game as well as future genre. Mecha is only a quarter the way worked and not yet included.

Here is the early access links giving access to those who contributed in the final few days, as well as some new access to formatted versions of fantasy set.

1) 5e x 5 Modern (set) currently includes 5e x 5 Modern Equipment V1.03 and 5e x 5 Modern Characters V1.0 . Psionics is only in it's early stages - three organized lists on a spreadsheet and my first attempt at telepathy cantrip in a .doc document.

2) 5e x 5 Future (set) currently includes 5e x 5 Future Equipment 01, 5e x 5 Future Characters v1.01, 5e x 5 Future...See more

To let everyone know of the future plans:
December will be focused on error updates for the fantasy core and developmental additions to modern & future.

For modern & fantasy, I'm working with the Psionics material which requires both a version change and numerical conversion. "Fighter in the Here and Now contributors" and higher that receive the Modern gift will see that first draft version.

For future mecha & mecha equipment and character mutations (a form of traits & flaws) are in the works at the moment. "Wizard From the Future contributors" and higher that receive the Future gift will see those first drafts as well.

All of the early access contributors will gain access to 5e x 5 Modern and 5e x 5 Future v1.0 material as soon as I finish the first conversion. I normally send out update emails for fantasy, modern, and future updates currently on a weekly basis as soon as the latest updates are uploaded. As time goes by and the...See more

I originally downloaded 5ex5 for free to try it out. After I received the e-mail about early Modern and Future access, I then purchased 5ex5 for $5 in order to get a look at Modern and Future.


Do I need a new e-mail with links that reflect the fact that I have now paid for 5ex5, or did I misread the e-mail? I thought it said that I still had until November 30 to buy 5ex5 in order to receive Modern and Future early access. Perhaps I was mistaken.

Thank you for your time and effort in this d100 version of D&D 5e, as well as for clarification on this issue.

Here's two that included contributions since that last announcement or any unclaimed from the prior announcements.

Unclaimed Gift access as of Nov 25 at the time of this posting.

Hi Stephen,

Thank you for contributing $5 after trying it out.

I have to input the account numbers manually listed and create a discount ticket links. Yours is entered on these two new links, but not on any of the prior ones since they didn't have your account number entered before this time.

For contributors between now and Nov 30 midnight, I'll create the final one the after the deadline on Thurs Dec 1, so that everyone is included.

Thank you again

Several updates to all three types of products:

5e x 5 Core (Fantasy) has an updated Monsters V1.02 PDF. There is a new list called Monsters CR & Terrain V1.0 PDF which can be used to find level and setting appropriate monsters. Also there is an updated Equipment & Treasures V1.01 PDF.

For 5e x 5 Modern has an updated Equipment V1.03 PDF.

For 5e x 5 Future has the new addition Robots V1.0 PDF.

Cybernetics conversion might be the easiest to do next. Either that or Mecha.

Check your "My Library" under each of the three products for the updates.

A 5e x 5 Future Equipment Update: Check your 'My Library'.

A separate 5e x 5 Future Characters which has converted 8 character backgrounds has been added to the 5e x 5 Future Equipment Folder for those that contributed.

One week since original release we've released the converted Modern Equipment, Future Equipment, updated half of Monsters with more text, corrected errors, and modified the game to create Technology, Expertise, and Vehicle skills.

Monsters book v 1.01 will be the first update coming up with new description text from 3.5e, environment, and organization information. Also some AC, saves, and noticeable stat corrections. The CR Hit Points chart will also be corrected.

File Size:

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.
