For the most up-to-date information about the status of our project, check our project updates on Kickstarter!

Is Everyday Heroes a complete system?

Yes, the core rulebook is 400+ pages and gives you everything you need to run a modern roleplaying game. It includes everything from player creation to tips on gamemastering. It also includes hundreds of modern-day foes - from pit bulls to hired assassins.

What if the pledge level comes with the special hardcover but I want the standard hardcover?

No problem, we will let you swap out versions of the core rulebook in the Pledge Manager.

Why build the system on 5th Edition?

The original d20 Modern was based on 3rd edition, therefore we felt it was only right to update to 5th edition. That was the best way to keep the core of the d20 Modern system alive. Also, we want as many people to play this game as possible and 5th edition is the most popular system in the world.

What are Cinematic Adventures™?

The Cinematic Adventure™ is a 100+ page digital book that is divided into two parts. The first part is a set of game mechanics that are in line with the world. The second part will be an exciting adventure set within the world. Some Cinematic Adventures™ will get expansion books to further flesh out the gameplay experience.

Can I buy a hardcopy version of the Cinematic Adventures™?

We have now found a printing option where we can offer a print version of the Cinematic Adventures™. We will give you the choice between print and digital in the Pledge Manager. Shipping will be calculated in the Pledge Manager as well. Just not, we plan to release these adventures every eight weeks during the 2023 year. Depending on current shipping issues, we may face delays.

When will the Cinematic Adventures™ be delivered?

We will send a new Cinematic Adventure approximately every six weeks. If you didn’t buy the entire Season Pass, you will receive your adventures on the same schedule.

What if I only want to buy a few Cinematic Adventures™?

If you only want to back certain Cinematic Adventures, you will be able to do so by purchasing add-ons. All versions of the adventures will be available via the add-on system.

What is a 2023 Season Pass of Adventure?

The Season Pass of Adventure is just a fancy name for buying all eight of the Cinematic Adventures at a discount. When you purchase the season pass, you get all eight adventures - each one sent to you every six weeks. Beyond the eight adventures you buy, there is no further obligation. There is no recurring charge on your credit card. It’s just a way to incentivize you to buy the entire set of Cinematic Adventures™.

Will there be a 2024 Season Pass?

If enough people like the 2023 season pass, we will definitely pursue a 2024 lineup.

What's the difference between Cinematic Adventures™ and the Season Pass?

There is nothing different between the two. All eight adventures make up the season pass. By buying all eight, you enjoy a large discount.

What is the Hardcover Compilation?

Since we will be introducing new game mechanics in each Cinematic Adventure™, we thought it would make sense to compile all of those new rules into a handy expansion. Even without buying the adventures, you can enjoy all of the rules for any of your favorite 5e games. The book will be delivered in both digital and hardcover formats.

What are Digital Bundles?

The Digital Bundles give you all of the digital products you need for any given Cinematic Adventure. It gives you the adventure itself, it gives you a version you can play on Roll20, and it gives you the related Syrinscape SoundSet - all for a discount.

What is Syrinscape and what are SoundSets?

Syrinscape is an amazing company that makes ambient sounds and sound effects for games and adventures. Many of the famous actual play podcasts use it to provide ambiance for their games. We have partnered with Syrinscape to make SoundSets for our Cinematic Adventures! I mean, what’s a movie without an amazing soundtrack?

What is Roll20?

Roll20 is the largest virtual tabletop service in the world. The VTT gives you the ability to play our Cinematic Adventures online with friends from all over the world. Our partner was also kind enough to bundle the Roll20 Version of the Everyday Heroes core rulebook into every pledge level!

Last updated: May 17, 2022 14:19

What about Foundry?

Don’t worry! We’ve signed a deal with Foundry to deliver our game on their platform. You can purchase the Core Rulebook as an add-on today. The VTT version of the Cinematic Adventures™ will be released soon after the Roll20 versions.

How will shipping work?

In order to provide the cheapest and most accurate shipping costs, we will charge shipping through the pledge manager. The shipping costs we show are merely estimates.

Last updated: May 17, 2022 14:19

Do you have legitimate licenses?

Yes, we do. Through blood sweat and tears, we do. I mean, if we didn’t, we wouldn’t have needed these legal notices below.

Can I fulfill my digital orders through DriveThru RPG?

Yes, we are working with them to help us distribute the PDF versions as an alternative to getting them directly from our website. Thanks to a few of our backers who expressed interest in this.

Last updated: May 20, 2022 10:58

When will shipping be charged?

We currently don’t have shipping prices entered for physical rewards in BackerKit. We plan to wait until closer to fulfillment to enter & charge you for the physical items on your survey to get the most accurate/fair fulfillment prices. We will update backers after entering those shipping prices before we charge you in BackerKit.

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.
