D20 Future

d20 Future
d20 Future is an accessory for the d20 Modern role-playing game written by Christopher Perkins?, Rodney Thompson?, and JD Wiker?. It facilitates the playing of campaigns in the far future, using elements such as cybernetics, mecha, mutations, robotics, space travel, starships, and xenobiology. d20 Future is the most extensive of science-fiction d20 games, being in fact a source for all sci-fi d20 games.


The book presented a number of campaign models, which provided a framework for building a full campaign setting but did not include a full-scale setting. Campaign models that are or can be used in space opera include:

* Bughunters, an adventure game and bug hunt setting inspired by Aliens?, Starship Troopers, and its predecessor in Amazing Engine.

* Dimension X, an adventure game setting based on the concept of parallel universes, which are referred to as dimensions.

* From the Dark Heart of Space?, a Star Wars? style setting inspired by the eternal struggle between good and evil, with a touch of the Cthulhu Mythos.

* Genetech?, apparently an uncredited adaptation of the background of the Moreau Series of books by S. Andrew Swann?. It originally appeared as a mini-game in Polyhedron #155.

* Mecha Crusade?, an anime-inspired (primarily Gundam?-inspired) setting taking place in the 2050s that focuses on the war between Earth and the Colonists, with giant fighting robots (mecha) being used on both sides. It originally appeared as a mini-game in Polyhedron #154. Mecha Crusade uses a different system than the Guardians of Order-published d20 Mecha?.

* Star*Drive?, a political space opera taking placed in the 26th century. It is a remake of Alternity Star*Drive? campaign setting.

* Star Law, a remake of the popular 1980s Star Frontiers space opera-based? role-playing game. The mini-setting is cited to use material from Star Frontiers? Alpha Dawn and Zebulon's Guide to Frontier Space.
