Deal of the Day - Ultramodern5 (D&D 5e Modern / Future Sourcebook)
Technically not an OSR offering, Ultramodern5 is a D&D 5e offering (and many of my readers at least dabble in 5e).
The idea of a modern / future sourcebook for D&D 5e intrigues me more than a little. I figure I could always steal ideas for White Star.
On sale for the next 25 hours for $5.20 in PDF.

From the blurb:
Ultramodern5 is the follow-up of the popular Ultramodern4
The mission of U5 is to present 5th EDITION rules for use in non-fantasy settings. These include pre-modern settings, contemporary settings, and those that are far flung fantastic and futuristic. U5 presents modern and science fiction rules in a game usually reserved for fantasy. There is no established setting in U5.
It presents classes, gear, and scenarios that can be inserted into any campaign, including the following:
Wild West (with or without aliens)
You may explore the rules in whatever context you wish. Rules are generalized, encouraging homebrew settings and the rebranding of elements.
Create a pure science fiction setting, or insert these rules into your own fantasy world to offer a unique spin.
THIS SOURCEBOOK INCLUDES:
--A revised “ladder” system, offering more adjustability with character creation. Modify your class with one of seven ladders.
