Ultramodern 4 on its way

29 posts / 0 new
Last post

The mission of U4 is to present 4th EDITION rules for use in non-fantasy settings. These include pre-modern settings, contemporary settings, and those that are far flung fantastic and futuristic. U4 is perfectly suited for any of these following campaigns:


Cyberpunk 
Espionage 
Modern warfare
Space opera
Technofantasy
Urban fantasy
Wild west, with or without aliens


U4 has no included setting, allowing you to explore the rules in whatever context you wish. The rules are offered in a general way, not assuming any time period. The equipment lists a wide range of various firearms. Though most are modern, there are quite a few that are retro and futuristic.


Features:




  • The new "Ladder" system which offers more adjustability with character creation. Modify your class with one of seven ladders.



  • Eleven new classes including sniper, faceman, infiltrator, and the grappler.



  • New armor including powered combat suits.



  • New skills & feats.



  • All new weapons including traditional firearms, rocket launchers, and laser rifles.



  • Pimp your auto. Purchase vehicles and modify their features.



  • All new opponents from fanatics to tanks.


And we have preliminary sketches...

Ahhhh guns. Who doesn't like guns?

Similarly, who doesn't like Modern?

Copper for the craftsman, cunning at his trade.

This is 3rd party support for 4th ed?  God, this looks like one of the things I wished they had made.  I'm gonna have to check this out. . .
"I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody." --Bill Cosby (1937- ) Vanador: OK. You ripped a gateway to Hell, killed half the town, and raised the dead as feral zombies. We're going to kill you. But it can go two ways. We want you to run as fast as you possibly can toward the south of the town to draw the Zombies to you, and right before they catch you, I'll put an arrow through your head to end it instantly. If you don't agree to do this, we'll tie you this building and let the Zombies rip you apart slowly. Dimitry: God I love being Neutral. 4th edition is dead, long live 4th edition. Salla: opinionated, but commonly right.

And I thank you for that.  We've actually been around for some time; wrote Amethyst and all.  

Here is the latest tease...

I'm going to have something more substantial this week.

We have two files available for download. The first is the Ultramodern4 OGL pre-release, showcasing the first six pages of the Ultramodern OGL. As we stated, this OGL has no layout or artwork; that's saved for final product. The second file is the Ultramodern4 "Hot Sheet"--a reference sheet for all the common new rules added to UM4, sans skills. There, you will find the new damage types, basic attacks, and keywords.

So EXCITED!

One of the big elements of Ultramodern which hasn't received a lot of attention is the adventure section. A quarter of the book is dedicated to encounters, maps, and opponents. This is but one section of one of the larger maps.





One of our LARGE maps for Ultramodern4. I mean large...like 10 MB.


Very nice, but do you have a version where the grid lines up straight for those of us that us VTTs instead of printing them out?
