this is a stupid thing to argue about anyway so I'm not going to.
Its retarded to say that even though everything in it that is campaign specific is specific to greyhawk, its not greyhawk.
I mean WTF?
I hate to be hall monitor, but this thread is for discussing d20 Modern, not merits or flaws of the D&D Players Handbook.
Who's arguing? :confused:
I disagree with your statement, that's all. It's all good. If you believe that it's tied to Greyhawk, then that's cool. I was just discussing it since you brought it up, but if you don't wnat to continue then that's cool too.
I usually do homebrews, but Dark*Matter has a lot of cool things in it.
I was thinking about the pirates one in d20 Past but it was too D&Dish for me. (But pirates and Call of Cthulhu would rock!)
Homebrew, What ifs, mix and mash, that sort of thing.
My favorite home brew is to take to cultures, that in reality have never met and mash them together. Say Medieval Spain and the Hindu Empire. Or Renaissance Italy meets South African apartheid with Humans as the oppressed majority.
My favorite d20 setting/mini game would have to be Jonathan Tweet's Omega World from Polyhedron #153. Really awesome post-apocalyptic science-fantasy. There's not much d20 stuff that excites me, but Omega World is fantastic! And it's an awesome homage to the old Gamma World to boot!
I really do not have a favorite d20 setting. I do love a whole lot of the ones that are based off movies and tv series (like Star Wars/Trek/Gate, etc). I also enjoy the D20 Modern setting with all the future and past books, as well as the Urban Arcana setting. I may be using the D20 Modern to set up my own RPG version of the AT-43 story and co-opt a more tactical combat style by using the AT-43 Tactics rules. Oy! So many options and so little time....
I love the Blood and Guts D20 Modern Military RPG myself.
Truth be know I haven't played or GMed a bad one using d20 Modern rules yet but I like the home brewed ones best.
My d20 Modern Homebrew is spawned from the film Boondock Saints. Basically the game picks up a year after the end of the film, and "Saints" have gathered in major cities across the states.
PC's can themselves be Saints, cops, Feds, or anyone else on the side of the vigilantes.
It's been fun... real fun!!
Silent Hill Modern d20 rpg :biggrin:
personally, I really like the idea of a d20 modern/post-apocalyptic/future Terminator campaign. (Yes, I am aware of the future fate pdf file. I like the idea, but dislike much of the implimentation of the machine's stats.)
My vote for my favorite published setting is still "Year of the Zombie" from UKG Publishing. Tim Willard really loves zombies, and it always showed in his work the level of research he's done. In a setting that's '20 seconds' into the future, it's a great zombie product. I regard it as the definitive d20 zombie product (with all respect to All Flesh Must Be Eaten, but the d20 tie-in for AFMBE was just that, a marketing tie-in).
I personally think the OGL Steampunk kicked ass as a game.
