We are proud to announce that we are officially licensed to sell D&D source material and content inside of Fantasy Grounds! This is the beginning of a great new partnership between SmiteWorks and Wizards of the Coast that will benefit gamers worldwide.
You can purchase the D&D Complete Core Class Pack with all the class, feats, spells and equipment or you can purchase individual classes only. You can also buy the monsters in packs or as the D&D Complete Core Monster Pack. These products have been converted to work really tightly with Fantasy Grounds to give you the best possible gaming experience - we know you're going to love them. They contain all the great artwork and content from the official products and all the smarts and integration to work with Fantasy Grounds. Not only will you get the same content that can be found in print, but you also get an exciting new Fifth Edition theme, adventures and content customized specifically for ease of play inside of Fantasy Grounds.
For Dungeon Masters and players on a budget, you might pick up a Player Customization Pack and one or two Class Packs of your choice. Dungeon Masters can often get by with just the Adventure of their choice and one or two Monster Packs.
What is a Virtual Tabletop?
A virtual tabletop (or a VTT) is a software program that allows you to play your favorite role-playing game online with other people at different physical locations. Gameplay works very much like it does when you play the pen & paper RPG in person, it just moves it to the Internet. Each person runs a copy of the software and one person still acts as the DM for a group of players. The DM version of the software contains a lot of features to make it easier to run a game as complex as D&D, while keeping the gameplay fast and fun. There are a lot of things to track for an RPG, such as the locations of monsters in relation to player's characters, the amount of hit points (life) that each player's character and monsters have at any given time, whose turn is next, what a certain spell or ability does and when certain effects end. Because this is computer software, we've done a lot of that work for the DM and Players so they can focus on telling and playing out great, collaborative stories featuring the characters they've created.
