D20 Modern



About the adventure

"No kiddin', there we wuz! In the good ole town of Mastication, we wuz mindin' our own bizness when all of a sudden a guy we thought we done buried two weeks ago walks into the saloon. Now, he didn' look so good. He didn' smell too good neither. Then all of a sudden again, he just grab the bartender by his suspenders, hauls him over the bar, and takes a big ole bite outta his neck. I tell you whut! Now there's blood gettin' everywhere, the barmaid's screamin', the bartender's screamin' louder. It wuz a right mess! Just what are we supposed to do? Wait! Ole Roy just busted in and told us that the good folk from the cemetery and the not so good folk from Boot Hill just got up and are headin' this way! To say things've just gone from bad to worse is an understatement!" The Western genre just met the Zombie Apocalypse genre in this fun little one-off. Will our players survive, or will they join the legions of the mindless undead? Uses the Sidewinder Recoiled system from d20 Modern.

Additional Details

How to prepare

All players should have a working microphone so that they can communicate with the GM and other players. Once you sign up, you will need to send the GM your email address so that he can send you a link to the Roll20 room. You can use physical dice or the dice roller on Roll20. Your choice.

What I provide

In addition to the source books, if the players wish, I will provide them with a copy of a blank Sidewinder Recoiled character sheet. Maps will be created in the Roll20 room.

Gameplay details

Role-playing mixed with a heavy dose of combat and a bit of a mystery to solve.

How will character creation work

Players will create their characters together at the start of the session. All characters, regardless of class, will be 6th overall level. Characters need not be a well-oiled unit, but going it alone or playing a character that is problematic for the rest of the party might mean your character won't live too long.

Players can expect

  • Combat/Tactics: High
  • Roleplay: Medium
  • Puzzles: Medium
  • Experience Level: Open to all
