NOTE:  This product requires Ultramodern5 and core 5th Edition rulebooks. (www.drivethrurpg.com/product/190188/Ultramodern5-5th-Edition)

History once spoke of individuals able to accomplish miracles, eventually eradicated or bred out by a population too frightened of what they didn't understand.  As science filled in the void left by absent gods, these gifted individual decreased until they became all but extinct.  But they never completely vanished.  Each generation, such a rare being appeared with abilities subtle to extreme.  However, despite their desire to reveal themselves, forces continually prevent them from doing so. 

To many of those who know them, they're of an inferior class.  To others, including themselves, they are considered an improvement on the design of man, an upper echelon. 

The apex.

Apex is a module for DEM's Ultramodern5a plug-in rather than a full setting: a set of rules and ideas to allow any number of homebrew settings to work within it.  There is a basic background involving people who gain unnatural powers, but don't let that limit you if you wish to use it as a jumping off point.

Apex includes the following: 

--Tier-based talent acquisition. Over 180 upgradable super-powered talents, totalling over 950 different variations. 

--New sacrifice rules to trade penalties for new talents.

--Eleven new backgrounds and apex-themed life events. 

--Eleven new ladders to focus your superpowers.

--New adversary templates and monsters.

I have read through the book a couple of times, and the only thing I have a question about is the idea of pushing. You do a great job of explaining the punishment for failing the check, but there isn't much context given as to when to use this. What benefits do they get? Is it power specific?

It is very power-specific. Many entries will state what you can gain from pushing. Look under the "Push" entry under the specific talents.

Alright. I remember reading through those before but not drawing the connection. This may simply be a home brew rule thing, but could you, theoretically, use the push system to increase the number of uses of certain abilities. For most tier 1 abilities, you only have one use before a long rest is necessary. Could they, say, push to use it a second time, with all of the risks inherent?

Some of them already have that, but if you want to homebrew additional uses, be my guest.

Looks neat. Are there plans for a physical book?

Yup, and as with Ultramodern5, anyone that purchased the PDF before the print's release will be able to acquire the print at cost.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
