I would just remove luck.

Then it wouldn't be SPECIAL. More importantly, if I'm not trying to preserve the acronym from the game why change the ability scores up so much at all. Luck will be tricky to work in, but I think it's possible.

Why not play the d100 fallout system?

Because d100 systems suck. Too much math for too little gain. Since most of those systems dole out bonuses in 5% increments anyway there's no real point in using d% beyond trying to avoid being sued by TSR, a problem that hasn't been real for decades.

Satyrn said:

I'd consider capping the starting scores at something like 7 or 8, just so there's room for growth in everything.

The video game doesn't cap so I'd prefer not to do so myself. It does make the high ability perks a little tricky to design though.

I'd like to see what you do with Luck - maybe just go as simple as make it so everyone has 5e's Lucky feat, with a number of uses equal to the Luck score.

Valmarius said:

My suggestion for Luck, to try and mirror the way it's used in Fallout:
Every time a PC misses on an attack or fails a roll, they get a luck token. At any time they can hold up to their Luck stat in tokens.
After any roll they can add luck tokens to increase the roll by +1 per token spent. This increase is considered part of the natural roll, so a 19 can be turned into a crit with the expense of one Luck token.

This mean Luck is essentially a mechanic to make sure you get more crits, and can be used as something of a 'get out of jail free' when things go wrong.

Luck will be the fun nut to crack so I'm going to leave it for later - try to get everything else in place first. One thing I will say, if luck is rarely checked as an ability perhaps its perks can be a bit stronger to compensate.

So let's look at the level 1 perks.

Strength 1

You are trained in all sorts of melee weapons combat (unarmed combat is a function of the martial artist perk).
Advanced: +2 to attack rolls with melee weapons
Expert: +4 to attack rolls with melee weapons and you may make an additional attack on your action.
Master: +6 to attack rolls with melee weapons and you may make two additional attacks on your action.

Sleight of Hand
Perception 1

You can pick pockets or perform similar tricks.
Advanced: +2 bonus
Expert: +4 bonus
Master: +6 bonus

Life Giver
Endurance 1
Advanced: +30 hit points
Expert: +60 hit points
Master: +90 hit points

(Not sure on those amounts)

Hard Dealer
Charisma 1

You drive a hard bargain in trading
Advanced: +2 bonus when haggling over price (items 10% less than list by default)
Expert: +4 bonus when haggling(items 20% less than list by default)
Master: +6 bonus, 30% reduction in prices.

I'm considering putting appraisal in this as well. Traditionally appraisal is Int based, but my reasoning is there is a charisma factor as well because there's always a "to the right buyer" component to an appraisal. To measure whether a person is the right buyer is a function of charisma. Trade is also a social interaction for the most part.

Intelligence 1

Each time you take this perk you learn a language

(It's more useful than VANS in any case)

Agility 1

Advanced: +2 to attacks with pistols
Expert: +4 to attacks with pistols, no disadvantage on second shot, third shot possible with disadvantage.
Master: +6 to attacks with pistols, no disadvantage on second and third shots, fourth shot possible with disadvantage

(A hint on how I intend to use advantage/disadvantage)

Fortune Finder
Luck 1

Advanced: +2 to treasure table rolls by the GM on the character's behalf (if multiple lucky characters are in the party these don't stack, just use the luckiest)
Expert: +4 to treasure table rolls
Master: +6 to treasure table rolls.

After All: Zombie Survival d20 Homebrew

After All: Zombie Survival d20 Homebrew

Title says most of it but here's the long and short. System is very lightly 5e D&D (really just using the d20 chassis, hitdice, adv/disadv, and bounded accuracy/six ability scores).

Players begin as a modern individual in a modern near-Earth (obviously there's some weird science cause, well, zombies). You get a pool of hitpoints at level one based on three of your six ability scores (which are Strength, Agility, Endurance, Intellect, Instinct, Presence). Endurance plus half Strength plus half Presence.

Weapons deal their die value to human opponents but all weapons deal exactly one damage to zombies. Zombies have 6 hitpoints, but each hitpoint represents a region on their unliving body. Players roll to attack and, based on how high they roll, can choose which body part to target. When a zombie's body is damaged, there's usually an effect.

For example: Player rolls to hit, gets a 16. Torso AC is 8, Arm AC is 14, and Leg AC is 11. So the player gets to choose which region they strike. There's no benefit for hitting the Torso other than doing 1 measly damage. Arms disable zombo grapples and swipes. Legs reduce speed or even cripple and knock prone, if both legs have been damaged. If the player had rolled an 18 or higher, they could've gone for the Head. Head hits are autokills, cause zombies.

This means players can roll like crap and still take a zombie down by hacking it to pieces. But if they roll high, autokill. When they fight living human opponents, they roll attacks and damage like normal for 5e. Zombies deal 1d4 damage on a hit but if they deal damage, the player character has to save vs. Agility or Instinct. If they fail, the hit was a bite and they become a zombie in 24 hours.

Instead of having a class, each character begins with a background. This is what they were before it all. Teacher, Mechanic, Doctor, Cop, Nerd, etc. Some weird ones are thrown in, like the Immune (who can't become zombies) and Prepper (who start with a safe house but have disadv. on social checks against NPCs). Each background gets a trait that helps them. Teachers can learn another background trait and can teach it to others. Cops start with a gun and ammo. Nerds recognize variant zombies and learn their powers upon first encountering them, rather than having to learn them through a fight.

Heavily reliant on amorphous slot-based encumbrance rules for what you can carry. Survival conditions take up inventory slots, like dehydrated, tired, or diseased. Items either take up a half slot or a whole slot. Negligible weight items are free to carry, like pencils, AA batteries, etc.

When players take damage, they roll a d6 to see where they've been hit. They take a wound that has an effect based on where it hit: arm wounds make it harder to attack, leg wounds slow you down, gut wounds sicken you, etc. Armor provides DR to specific body regions. Weapons typically deal higher damage than their 5e counterparts for lethality reasons.

Definitely including variant zombie types from across the various franchises. Boomers, clickers, sprinters, "ant" zombies from World War Z, shamblers, screamers, pukers, animal zombies, brutes, armored, biomass, behemoths, etc.

Sound interesting?

Homebrew d20

Here at the DDN, we hold d20 Modern in pretty high esteem. As such, we have created a large amount of material on the subject over the years. Here, we will keep all our d20 Modern homebrew, neatly stacked and sorted for your convenience and ease of use.

The Magician– take this class if you want your character to be a flashy stage illusionist.modern.jpg

Jason Voorhees– terrorize your PCs with this slasher film favorite!

Freddy Krueger– no Halloween is complete without mentioning this godfather of horror.

Satchel of Sugar Storage– this magical bag will help your character make the most of trick-or-treating. Happy Halloween!

The Ork one last time– because it’s my website and you can’t stop me… no one can…

The Ork again- I love orks. Get over it, because I sure won’t.

The Ork again- because the first article runneth over but I have more to say.

The Orks– from Warhammer 40k, these big green bruisers can find a home in your modern or future game.


Oktoberfest magic items – if you ever thought there was more to beer than just getting you drunk, you were right!

Rig B –an enchanted tactical harness, ’cause the only weapons that matter are the ones you carry with you.

Home-made weapons -though originally intended for use with d20 Apocalypse, these quirky death machines might find use in your d20 Modern game.

Cars -you need wheels, we got wheels.firefight.jpg

Boats -we got water transportation covered, too.

Orbital Laser -is your campaign absurd enough that you need these stats?

Planes -come fly the friendly skies of Doderman Air
