5e x 5 Modern Equipment

This first expansion book requires the basic core found in the 5e x 5 (Fantasy) system and adds guns, grenades, rocket launchers, flame throwers, computers, and other modern equipment. It is converted from MSRD.

This book has no illustrations nor artwork. It's main feature is mixed double and single-column text to help reduce the page count. Currently it has a simple page number found in the upper right corner on every page and a table of contents with page numbers near the beginning. The cover is a simple black cover.

A 5e x 5 Character book is required to create player characters. The 5e x 5 Combat & Conditions is needed for combat prodeedures however there are some notes on how to use the gun feats in combat because guns are not found in the C&C book. The 5e x 5 Monsters book is used for the modern creatures and fantastic monsters. It contains animals, vampires, zombies, werewolves, ghosts, and other NPC stats that the gamemaster can change by swapping out the fantasy/medieval gear for modern gear and changing the names to modern equivalents.

A modern campaign may be doable without using either of the 5e x 5 Spells or the 5e x 5 Equipment and Treasures books. The modern technology, guns, and armor, computers, and gear found in this book may take those two book's place, unless your campaign has magic. Or you may want to add some of the swords which are available in this day.

These modern equipment use a flexible Purchase DC income and expenditure system which is abstract, instead of fantasy gold and silver. I show a chart with US $ amounts. However, any currency such as the Euro €, Pound £, Frank ƒ, or even Yen ¥ monetary systems can be used instead just by making your own monetary table using the Purchase DC values..

Recommended Required Companion Books

If you need the animals, zombies, vampires, ghosts, werewolves and other mythical beasts. Also in near the back are some fantasy NPCs that with a little effort can be turned into modern NPCs. For example, changing a fighter based NPC into a soldier or double agent.

Until a Modern Characters book is published you can alter the fantasy classes somewhat.  A section at the front of the Modern Equipment book has a few of my suggestions.

Prior Version

The PWYW version of 5e x 5 OGL SRD which contains all five books with only minimal format and no columns. try it first and then upgrade for additional convenience and speed.

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.
