Game Design: P20 Modern Roleplaying Game
The P20 Modern Project is dedicated to creating a revised and improved version of the Modern SRD using the Pathfinder RPG as a guide.
The P20 Modern Project (name subject to change) from Super Genius Games (www.supergeniusgames.com) is dedicated to creating a revised and improved version of core d20 rpg rules, designed to update the Modern SRD rules, and bring many of the innovations pioneered by the Pathfinder RPG into the genre of modern gaming. The head design team intends to take the time to consider every aspect of the game rules prior to beginning the process of writing, and the project allows time and resources to ensure any new rule is thoroughly researched, developed and playtested before becoming part of the final project.
Obviously such an undertaking requires flexibility regarding the path of design, but patrons also have a right to know what the end-goal of the project is. This the following core design principles are presented, to outline what we plan to achieve.
Using the Modern SRD as our baseline, and the Pathfinder SRD as a blueprint for updates and improvements, create a streamlined, updated, complete core d20 ruleset able to support campaigns set in a wide range of post-industrial settings. Backwards compatibility with both the Pathfinder RPG and Modern SRD is a design goal, though it is secondary to creating the best rpg possible drawing from those two sources.
The game will be anchored by a set of flexible, balanced, useful core classes that can be used to represent a slew of modern and futuristic character archetypes easily even at 1st level, but remain versatile enough to be used in games with civilian or military focus, high magic and psionics or limited to real-world technology.
Characters from the finished RPG should be interchangeable, from a balance and rules perspective if not one of storyline, with characters from the RPG Pathfinder Core Rulebook. If you want to have paramedics and SWAT members taking on dragons and labyrinths, this product will be designed to assist you.
Lead Designers include d20 luminaries Owen K.C. Stephens and Stan! and longtime industry professional R. Hyrum Savage. To learn more about each of them click here: http://www.supergeniusgames.com/...
