I've avoided posting this, untill now, as it always seems that the whole issue of what should have been in the main book, but wasn't, could easilly turn into a flame war. That is certainly not my intent, and if I am encouraging anything of the sort, please accept my most sincere appologies. Yes the...

yes its gona be in about a year and a half when the 3.0 version is hard to find. Wrong. In the area I live in right now, you cannot get it. All of the stores I have been to have already stated they cannot order the old one, either. they have printed so many its gona take a long time before you cant...

I dont think they could use any D20 modern for the simple fact i dont belive D20 Modern is Open source. so i dont belive Mongoose had any option there. Your belief that d20 Modern is not open source does not change the fact that d20 Modern is, in fact, open source . The d20 Modern SRD is available ...

As I noted in another post (in the translators thread), I find the lack of a "Raider" class just as jarring as the inclusion of the "Lurker" class. Raider falls into just about every class though. There isn't a school for raiders somewhere LOL they're all those who become disenfranchised enough to ...

Sure, everyone wants something different. I wouldn't have made the game a D20 product personally as I don't think the system fits a sci-fi setting. Well... I think d20 is a fine system, and can certainly be used effectively in a sci-fi setting (although I would personally borrow more from d20 Moder...

I ask that you leave the classes alone - apart from Worker which needs something to make it attractive to players. Lurker is a fine class although I feel that it covers too big an area. I was going to post a bunch of thoughts here. Instead I will simply say that I disagree for reasons already expre...

Raider falls into just about every class though. There isn't a school for raiders somewhere LOL they're all those who become disenfranchised enough to seek money in a less than legit way with a modicum of piloting ability. I can see this. Then we need a basic "thug" class. In fact, the idea of the ...

As I noted in another post (in the translators thread), I find the lack of a "Raider" class just as jarring as the inclusion of the "Lurker" class.

So... I would like to see a "Raider" class, either in the companion or as a download on the site.

OK, I'll conceded the first point to a certain extent. I do think that due to 3.5 and the malleable nature of D20, including skills and feats in the core book would be a good idea. Less flipping through books and the ability to actually find the material you are looking for. On the other hand, ther...

*I disagree with the no D20 logo and the inclusion of the OGL bits that were missed. Why bother? I feel like a broken record, but here goes: because this is advertized as a Role playing Game, not a Campaign Setting. As a Role playing Game, it should stand alone (or at least as alone as is legally p...

TELEPATHIC SENSITIVITY

Above, I have a feat called TELEPATHIC SENSITIVITY. This feat, I think, underscores the idea of the background feat. Start with this one. The feat would look something like this: TELEPATHIC SENSITIVITY You have the genetic marker for telepathic abilities. You abilities at this stage are severely lim...

BACKGROUND SKILLS AND BACKGROUND FEATS

These rules are used much like the regional feat rules in books like the FORGOTTEN REALMS CAMPAIGN SETTING. BACKGROUND SKILLS : Each character, at character creation, is allowed to select two skills that are to be considered CLASS SKILLS for them, no matter what class they advance in. This represent...

This is, indeed, exciting news. A few things I would suggest: Do not place the d20 logo on it. By making this OGL only, you can include those two areas of the d20 system that cannot be included when the d20 logo is attached to it. Include the 40-odd pages of material from the SRD that (in my opinion...
