A modern d20 System sourcebook by Stan!

"... [A] remarkable approach to rules design that almost perfectly matches that taken in official d20 Modern products.... [O]nly the book's black and white art and trade dress differentiate it from a full-blown Wizards release."

-Dungeon/Polyhedron, January 2004

Green Ronin has released a print version of the Modern Player's Companion, compiling and integrating the information from the original PDFs.

Heroes can face some pretty tough decisions. But nothing compares to the choices a player has to make. Whether at character creation or when leveling up, just figuring out how to get the hero on your character sheet to match the one in your imagination can be the toughest challenge in the game. Modern Player's Companion provides expanded options for creating, developing, and equipping characters, offering even more ways to personalize and customize the heroes of any modern-world d20 game. Modern Player's Companion includes seven new starting occupations, including Bohemian and Tribal; nine class combinations that illustrate how to flesh out a character concept by multiclassing with just the six basic classes; eight new advanced classes, such as the Enforcer and the Survivalist; twenty-five feats including Cross-Training, Poker Face, and Sidestep; new equipment, from duffle bags to laser pointers, along with equipment packages that enable heroes to quickly gear up for action; and a whole lot more. Give your d20 character the edge with the Modern Player's Companion.

The full contents of Modern Player's Companion is available as two PDFs or one print volume.
