ABOUT

  AD&D rules can be used to run games in the present day, or have people/items incorporated into an AD&D campaign, this is possible due to Spelljammer and Planar travel. Note that while modern weapons are terrible destructive, most of them can't harm creature only hurt by magical weapons! The exception to this is explosive weapons, but even then they wouldn't effect non-corporeal creaures. Other problems exist such as sounds causing cave-ins and that when someone caryring lots of ammunition is hit by a Fireball, there ammo may explode if they fail their saving throw...

  These tables have items, weapons and such divided into categories and prices. Prices are only approximate, DMs should rule on types of weapons exact ammo capacity and cost, the better they are, the more expensive they become.

  When using firearms, they often have two modes of fire, single shot and full automatic. Full automatic weapons have a tremendous recoil, this imposes a -4 attack penalty. And firing "from the hip", fast shooting generally used in close quarter fighting, inflicts a further -4 hit penalty, shooting is always considered "from the hip" unless the characters are at ranges greater than 20 yards, or if they state, or have time to aim properly. So someone firing full auto without taking time to aim gets a -8 penalty to hit! But the amount of bullets fired tends to guarantee a hit...

Note that conventional armour (and thus most creature's armour class due to thick hides, except dragons, bulettes and similar with truly dense hides) is of no use against these inherently armour piercing weapons, and they are considered AC 10. However, Dexterity, cover, and magic all apply as normal.

Reloading a weapon takes 1 round.

ANTI-TANK ROCKETS: it's important to note that their blasts create narrow, focused "jets" that are designed to destroy one target by direct impact and deep penetration, not an area around it--they can make a hole through nearly a foot thick steel, but won't flatten buildings, contrary to what's seen in movies. Only a few weapons can affect tanks and fortified structures, such as these missiles.

ARMOUR

Modern body armour is specifically designed to resist armour piercing attacks such as bullets, and to disperse the energy, reducing damage inflicted per attack, but damage cannot be lowered beyond 1 hp. However, unlike older types of armour, it cannot be repaired, it must be replaced after sustaining damage (i.e. if a character is injured more than once in a battle he must get new armour, or it's abilities will decrease at the DM's discretion). Laso, called shots can be used against a target's head, bypassing his amrour, as helmet armour is rarely as good as body armour, if any is worn at all.

"bug" There are numerous types of listening devices, ranging from telephone taps to tiny microphones. These are rated as per Level, as if they were thieves, with abilites of 5% per level. So a high level one, level 10, as would be used by the FBI for instance, has a 50% chance no to be spotted. The chance to hear something of value as per Detect Noise would also 5% per level, unless the DM has specific chances. Recent advances mean that some bugs are asctually video cameras!
tiny
$50 per level
Reciever for bug Bugs must transmit their information in some way, these are radio recievers, special "burst" high speed transmission are used with the more advanced bugs, they are rated per "level"of the bug they are to work with, powerful receivers can work with low level bugs, but not the other way around.
