  • ARCANE OF THE MIND - This setting is not so much of a magic setting but rather a system of unique mental powers called "Psychic" abilities. Very similar to the more powerful psionics found in many fantasy settings but adjusted to provide a modern approach.

By the way folks the GRC team are such strong supporters of Open Gaming that they regularly send me, unrequested, their new products and specifically ask me to post them to the SRD. I'll be adding this but it will be at least a month before I can get to it though. If this product sounds like your cup of tea you should check out http://www.d20modernpf.com/ to see the full base rules then come back here and click the Add to Cart button :)

By the way, I was interviewed last night for the Bamf podcast and we discussed Modern Path a bit. The purpose of the interview was to talk about the Mutants and Masterminds SRD site (www.d20herosrd.com) but d20 Modern and Pathfinder came up so we talked a little about Modern Path as well. The recording should be posted today or tomorrow according to Mike @ Bamf.


Very cool, thank you and thank you again for all your hard work!

Modern Path Sale, $1 off the rest of the month, also minor update to the Arcana pdf.


We are updating the Modern Path pdfs, (any yes, it will be a free upgrade) and we want your input of likes and dislikes and what needs to get tweaked out.

A few thoughts we have and would like your input:

Class AC bonus, Keep or drop?
Hero Points, keep the modern progression rate or just use the PSRD or just drop?
Gun Combat, tweaks, I know burst fire is a bit much.
Arcana Hero Class, drop and just roll everything over to the Modern Hero?

We want the Modern Path rules to work within the PSRD, and able to work with other Modern supplements.

Thank you for your help and input!


I just bought a copy.


Thank you, please let us know what you think


Here is the raw update to the Modern Path PDF and Hero Lab dataset.

The PDF: I still have to edit some of the wording, format it, and add the art, but the new mechanics are all there and ready to go.

The Hero Lab Data set: It’s all there and with script updates. You will have to redo you old characters. I moved some the slots around. For example, the difficulties are now under the Flaws. Once the PDF is finished I’ll post the files in the auto updates.

This update should enable you to easily incorporate your old d20 Modern material and other current modern setting Pathfinder material into the Modern Path. Some of the big changes are to: armor, firearms, wealth and fame. There are also tweaks here and there.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

You can find both the PDF and Hero Lab Dataset at:

New update to the pdf and hero labs dataset


Big Updates to the Modern Path. You should be able to easily use your old modern material and the new other modern supplement. Also included in the update is art!

Print on Demand is always difficult to set up, but will be coming soon.

The Hero Labs data set and the Arcana pdf is also updated to the new updated rules.

It seems it takes the store front a bit to catch up to the new info, but the files are there to download.

Contributor

Emails are being sent as we speak notifying folks of the update. :D


Thank you!

New Modern Path for Hero Lab updates and new data from other sources.

BTW – I didn’t include the MSRD files due to load issues. But if you want them, just let me know.

Please let me know of any bugs.


New Modern Path Hero Lab updates.

I got the old MSRD prestige classes working in the Modern Path dataset. So you can use them as archetypes for the various class or with the Modern Hero class or just as prestige classes.

A few new weapons, armor and gear and new "PL" material.

There is a check box to use the old MSRD material along with the Modern Path material. If you check that box, you get the MSRD skills, feats, rep and wealth.

Hopefully there are no load errors or bugs, but if so, just let me know.

The dataset is a free update within Hero Labs auto updater.

Dark Archive

Sounds interesting, I will have to check it out when time and money allow.


The dataset is free and the Modern Path SRD is also free.

Hero Lab:
