What Makes Everyday Heroes Special?

If you know 5th edition, you’ll be able to jump right away into this modern-day RPG. In this system, we introduce six archetypes based on the d20 structure from Strong Hero to Charming Hero. We’ve also added backgrounds and professions to add a further dimension to your character. Backgrounds give you special skills and ability bumps based on how you were raised. Your profession gives you additional skills, ability boosts, and starting gear. Here are a few examples:

New Classes

An Overhauled Wealth System

One of the biggest complaints about d20 Modern was the Wealth System. We revised the system so you don't have to pass a DC check to buy groceries. In our system, you can buy any legal item that costs less than your wealth level. Thanks, Amazon Prime!

Our favorite sharpshooter, Saorise O'Connor, doesn't like to be followed.

A Better Chase System

Let's face it, most chase systems suck. But what's a good action sequence without a car or foot chase? We've created a narrative chase system that ties seamlessly into combat and faithfully recreated the movie scenes you love.
