Now available for Mac Users
Mac users can now try out the Demo and activate or purchase a Full version of Fantasy Grounds. They can play cross-platform with users on Windows or Mac/Linux/PC users running outside of Steam. It took almost an enitre day, at least 6 cups of coffee and lots of help from Zeus to pull it off, but the simpler installation works fairly well.
* Zeus is one of the forum users and regular community contributors for Fantasy Grounds and not "the" Zeus from the Greek Pantheon.
The Ultimate Upgrade is available
Originally, we weren't sure we'd be able to provide the Ultimate license for Fantasy Grounds on Steam. Now it is available as an Upgrade and is currently 25% off for the launch week. The Ultimate functions exactly like the regular version on Steam but with one major difference. If you host a game with an Ultimate license, you can have regular users and
Demo users join your campaigns. They will be treated just like regularly licensed players when they connect. This means that you can run as many campaigns as you want with as many of your friends as you'd like and they don't ever have to buy anything.
Chaosium's Basic Roleplaying (BRP) System is now available
Check out BRP and find out why Chaosium's systems are so popular. The ease of understanding with a percentile based system can not be overstated. There is no easier way for players to wrap their head around having a 65% chance at success -- than having a skill with a 65% success attached to it. Oh yeah, it's also 25% off for the launch week.
Rolemaster Classic Ruleset is now available
RMC, as it is known, is one of the crunchiest (is that a word) systems there are. There are sophisticated tables available for nearly every type of attack. The learning curve is a little steeper for this ruleset than for any others, however, the RMC community on FG swears by it as a way to play the game much more quickly than it would be in paper. The automation of chart lookups during combat allows for much faster play without losing any of the complexity that players love. One GM recently ran a 4-hour session for FG Con and was able to complete 5 separate battles in that time period. For those familiar with RMC, you will realize how impressive that is.
Hey, guess what. It is 25% off during launch week.
Fiery Dragon Token Pack now available
Fiery Dragon have been long time supporters of Fantasy Grounds, and it seemed only appropriate that we make one of their token packs the first ones available. The artwork is cropped profiles and are very beautifully drawn. The first set was built to cover many of the monsters and creatures you may come up against in a D&D 4E game; however, they are suitable for any fantasy setting and come marked as such. You can use these same tokens in Castles & Crusades, Savage Worlds, Rolemaster Classic or even in one of the community rulesets.
Did I mention that they are 25% for launch week?
