Evil Genius Productions to Release Fresh Take on 2002’s “d20 Modern” Game for its 20th Anniversary
The forces of evil are at it again. The Hackers are sabotaging power plants. The mafia is rebuilding. Master Thieves are stealing the world’s precious artwork. Gangs are taking over new turf. Evil geniuses are trying to take over the world. Who will stop them? Perhaps you, just Everyday Heroes™.
“EveryDay Heroes” starts with key “d20 Modern” elements such as the basic classes — the strong hero, the fast hero, the tough hero, the smart hero, the dedicated hero, and the charismatic hero — but builds on this convention by introducing several new subclasses, a new wealth system, and a fully revamped chase mechanic.
The “d20 Modern” tabletop roleplaying game was released 20 years ago. “d20 Modern'' was one of the first and most popular roleplaying games set in the current day. Over a four-year lifespan, the system released 11 expansions. The game also created an explosion of 3rd party products that complemented the original game.
“It’s exciting to revisit the d20 system I helped design 20 years ago,” said Grubb. “How we think about game design has evolved significantly so this is a great opportunity to bring concepts of the ‘d20 Modern’ game into the fifth edition era for today’s players.”
The game was designed by Bill Slavisek, Jeff Grubb, Rich Redman, and Charles Ryan. Grubb has also joined Evil Genius Production’s design team to create the new “Everyday Heroes” game.
Grubb is joined by fellow “d20 Modern” producer Stan! Brown and veteran game designer Steve Miller. These veterans have worked on some of the most iconic role-playing settings ever released, including “Forgotten Realms,” “Dragonlance,” “Ravenloft,” “Marvel Superheroes Roleplaying Game,” and the “Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game” by West End Games. The three veterans are joined by two upcoming game designers, Chris Ramsay and Sigfried Trent.
