    Ultramodern4 OGL Rules Released for Free

    The Ultramodern4 ruleset, which aims to place D&D 4th Edition squarely in a modern/future genre, can now be downloaded for free. The rules are designed to cover the genres of Cyberpunk, Espionage, Modern Warfare, Space Opera, Technofantasy, Urban Fantasy, and the Wild West (with or without aliens). Released by Dias Ex Machina under the Open Gaming License, the free version contains no artwork or layout.
    Ultramodern4 is presented as an OGL to both support 4th Edition gaming and to reach a larger fan base. The decision was a difficult one, brought on from conversations with fans regarding the insecurity of the economy. Simply put, some people didn't want to spend money on something they might hate. Ultramodern4 is the result of three years of writing, rewriting, and playtesting. We're proud of the system and believe that so passionately, we're willing to let the product speak for itself. Even though the OGL does reference maps, these maps are only available in the full edition (as they cost money to make). We are hoping that this OGL will reach a larger audience which may result in more sales. If you like what you read, please purchase the PDF or POD, or barring that, send a donation via PAYPAL to Slipstream2@serenadawn.com.

    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.
    You can download for free right here.

    NOTE: This OGL lacks both layout AND artwork.

    The mission of U4 is to present 4th EDITION D&D 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.

    NOTE: The PDF is NOT watermarked
    "Amethyst is an extremely vibrant new setting, presenting a campaign world that feels holistic in scope, even as the possibilities presented in this book barely seem to scratch the surface."
