D&D 5ed20 Modern

Behind the Screens – D&D 5th Edition & D20 Modern

In today’s Behind the Screens article at WotC, Daniel Helmick has put together some more rules for creating a D20 Modern world using existing 5th edition firearm rules, and d20 modern armor in a D&D 5th edition game.  Some of these thoughts are in my Star Frontiers game, so this is great that he put some time into this and I can tweak my game a bit.

Also, for Damage Reduction, a DR/5 ballistic will reduce ballistic damage by 5 points from a hit.  If you are looking for the official d20 Modern System Reference Document you can find All-in-One MSRD Download here:  http://www.wizards.com/d20/files/msrd/MSRD.zip
