Post 100

Post 100. I didn't even think I'd get this far. I sure as hell didn't think this little rewrite of D20 Modern would still occupy my mind, let alone become what it's turned into.

Before I get into certain thank yous, and shout-outs, I'll go and post what was updated.

Core Rulebook Changes

4e 1.21 to 1.22
Changed Aircraft Operations feats to remove the notion of regular helicopters
Changed Pilot to include general helicopters
Changed Cleave to not include "The same bonus as used"
Changed the entire Vehicle combat rules, and replaced vehicles with more generic archetypes.

Removed "SHort description" from feats

Modern Magika Changes

Added the Craft(Alchemy) skill that allows you to make potions

Added glass globes and the globe launcher to Modern magika.

Supply Drop 3 Changes(The one with the generic guns)
Added Generic machine pistols

Alright, now that I got that out the way there are a few people and organizations I'd like to thank for all the help with this once-shitty system

Boots: Thank you for all your help with rules, and theories and being able to bounce numbers off of you. It has definitely been appreciated and I seriously do not think that the system would have gotten better without your input and your contributions!

Spindly: Would not have been nearly as fluffy or given me ideas for generic things based off of your artistic designs and explanations. I am glad to have you as a contributor to this system!

Druin: Thank you for being our human calculator. Magic would probably still be broken without your brain.

The Playtesters: This includes Gordon, AniaMay, Ned, and the rest of the #opsandtactics crew(Sorry if I missed anyone). Could not nor would not have wanted to do this without you guys, thanks a million for being guena pigs

/tg/: Thank you for telling me how shitty it was in the beginning so I could fix the core issues

/k/: Thank you for the oddly specific gun knowledge I needed to complete armory and a host of other firearms related things.

Readers and Contrubters: Thank you for reading this system. I say often that I didn't really make this for anyone else, and it is true, but thank you for taking a chance on a D20 Modern heartbrake(Of all things) and either loving or hating it. Thank you for everyone who's ever emailed me, gave me constructive criticism on the system or some rules, or even picked it up. I may write this for myself, but I keep going cause people enjoy it. 

As for that, I think with the vehicles finally done, I can call the system more or less complete. There is still much to do with editing the system for real consumption, and possibly talking to someone to start a Print on demand, for those that want printing.

The PDF will always be free, forever.

Edit: I just realize that I posted this nearly 4 years to the day I started this accursed blog!

So hooray! Anniversaries!
