Basically, it's going to be d20 Modern, brought to you by the guys that brought you d20 Modern.
I have a couple questions about this. Such as- will it actually be compatible with d20 Modern? When I hear the word "pathfinder", I think backwards compatibility, but some comments have led me to believe a lot might change.
Oh, and I've been name-checked in threads on the topic several times, which is flattering as hell.
I guess in some ways, I'm seen as a standard-bearer for modern games because I never stopped writing modern games.
Here's a tip on how that came to pass: I am not faking the funk on liking modern games. Since the first time I laid eyes on Champions, Danger International, Justice Inc. (hell yeah Justice Inc!), Here be Tigers (oh man, here there be tigers), Gamma World and even Marvel Faserip, I've loved the idea of gaming outside a fantasy setting.
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against fantasy games, as witnessed by all the work I've been doing on OSRIC stuff lately, and sci-fi is cool as hell, but there's something awesome about a modern game that no other game can capture for me.
