There are plenty of D&D monsters as big as a Kaiju – and while you may have taken on plenty of D&D dragons in your time, you’ve probably never been up against anything quite like Godzilla or Mothra. One tabletop RPG publisher is giving you the chance to jump in a mech suit and take on some giant beasties, however – by creating a D&D version of Pacific Rim. ‘Pacific Rim’ is one of eight Cinematic Adventures created to supplement the Everyday Heroes RPG from Evil Genius Productions.

Do you remember Wizards of the Coast’s d20 system, originally developed for the 3rd Edition of Dungeons and Dragons? Or more to the point, the d20 Modern system, released in 2002, which took the core mechanisms from the d20 System Reference Document (SRD) and revamped it for a modern setting (even futuristic in terms of d20 Future!)?
Well, if you do, and you get excited recalling your exploits in the system, then keep reading, as this might be of interest. If you don’t remember it, and haven’t a clue what I’m rambling on about, keep reading anyway, because you never know when the lure of a Role-Playing game might grab you and this has the promise to be great…

Dave Scott of Evil Genius Productions sent me this press release to share about their upcoming product, “Everyday Heroes.” I thought d20 Modern was a pretty cool concept back in the day but, I confess, that it dropped out of my memory hole. I think it’s really cool that someone is bringing it back and converting it to the Fifth Edition SRD chassis for maximum audience. One of the original authors, Jeff Grubb, is attached to this so I’m looking forward to watching it develop.

It is not often I get sent press releases, but I am always happy to help out other publishers. I confess to never having played d20 modern, and in reading around this I found it was based on D&D 3.5, and I have never played that either. Everyday Heroes™ shares some DNA with 5e and I have played that!
