Modern Dungeon5 is a source book for playing the 5th edition of the world's best known fantasy role-playing game in a modern setting. 

There's 5 new classes, designed for modern-era and/or sci-fi settings.

  • The Augment: Enhanced by science to attain physical perfection, how do they use their near-superhuman physique? Methodologies: Chemical Cowboy, Geneticist, and Jekyll.
  • The Charmer: Using their personality and appeal to manipulate others, do they serve a cause or just themselves? Archetypes: Commander, Entertainer, Grimace, and Undercover Agent.
  • The Expert: Specializing in one thing to become the best in the world, what area do they master? Specialties: Debunker, Hacker, Medic, Occult Scholar, and Saboteur.
  • The Gadgeteer: Creating powerful but unstable prototypes, how will their inventions change the world? Archetypes: Inventor, Operator, and Cyborg.
  • The Trickster: Confounding and befuddling opponents, are they highly skilled or just really lucky? Archetypes: Everyman, Harlequin, and Tychemancer.

There are also modern-era archetypes for each of the existing classes -- along with updates to their starting equipment and tool proficiencies to keep them current.

To flesh out your character, there's also 25 new backgrounds you can choose from, allowing you to build a character from any walk of life.

Plus rules for car chases, hacking, and a bunch of other stuff that medieval characters could never dream of.

Love your guys stuff, but, can we get a better preview of the contents rather than a nice pic of the back of some cards? Thanks.

Wow. This has to be my sloppiest roll-out yet. As embarrassing as these sorts of mistakes are, I'm grateful that you point them out to me.
I've activated the Flash preview but I'm not sure why the first page always looks like a photo negative. It's happening regardless of which pages I select so I think it may be the application.
The pdf is still fixated on the cards file. Not sure if deactivating it and reactivating tomorrow will reset it or not.

Drivethrurpg has this listed as a pathfinder first edition book as well as a DnD 5 book, but everything in the description references DnD 5 solely, so I presume that is a mistake.

Indeed it is a mistake. Modern Dungeon5 is 5th Edition-only.Thank you for letting us know!

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.
