Fantasy Grounds is now available on Steam
FG Virtual Con 4 - May 8 through May 11th (Play for free)
Description
Release date: Released May 9th, 2014!
Fantasy Grounds is a virtual RPG tabletop for playing role-playing games online (such as Dungeons and Dragons). It is designed to move all the conventional things you do at the gaming table into an online environment, such as 3D dice, character sheets, maps, miniatures, chatting, combat tracker, and more. In addition, the user interface is designed to capture the spirit of the pen and paper role-playing experience. Over 25 different role-playing game systems are supported by Fantasy Grounds at this time, with more being added by the community and developers over time.

For the GM (game master), Fantasy Grounds allows the GM to create and keep track of all their campaign information within the application. The GM gets to choose when to share (or unshare) the information with their players. Visual campaign materials (maps, miniatures, handouts) can be provided by the GM directly from common graphics file formats (such as JPG and PNG); or map and token packs can be purchased at the Fantasy Grounds store. Fantasy Grounds also provides game system automation for many common game mechanics to help speed up play. One of the core tenets of our approach is to provide as much automation as the GM wants in their campaign, but never require automation to be used. Finally, many game system definitions in Fantasy Grounds allow GMs to specify options to customize the campaign experience.

For developers, Fantasy Grounds can be customized from the ground up to create a unique tabletop environment. Developers can create custom themes, house rule packs or define a new tabletop for a new role-playing game system. All materials to develop for Fantasy Grounds are available online on our website.

A free demo is available on the web site to try out the product with some example campaigns.

Note that many of the images and content displayed in the screenshots and videos are DLC add-ons that can be purchased to work with the software. You can import and create your own content or purchase additional DLC which is fully licensed from third-party publishers in the roleplaying industry. Out of the box, Fantasy Grounds comes with support for D&D 3.5, D&D 4E and Pathfinder. Both the 3.5E and Pathfinder rulesets come with freely available content provided by Wizards of the Coast and Paizo as part of the Open Gaming License.

Operating Systems supported: Windows primarily, with support for Mac and Linux via Wine. We are completing a wrapper for Wine that will make it indistinguishable from a native Mac app. We have been stable on Mac and Linux for the lasts several years and have purposefully limited all new code to features that are well supported in Wine.

For those who didn't see, Fantasy Grounds is now available for purchase on Steam. DLC will be released each week and priced at a 25% discount during each DLC's launch week.

I'm working on a few things next week and this is hopefully one of the items I'll make good headway on. We need to get existing keys to activate without showing up as a Demo, work on the Mac and Linux ports and the work to implement the Workshop on Steam. I think there is one other item that is slipping my mind at the moment, but those are the main, critical items at the moment.

so when will Custom content from players be available to share? there are a few other games on steam that have this function and i think FG would work great with it, granted they would need to be approved since they can't be premade adventures and such.

Any time a player connects, they download the GM's ruleset into memory without needing to make another purchase. We are only selling one version of Fantasy Grounds on Steam, which is $39.99 - but will have a 25% launch discount.

The built-in rulesets for 3.5E comes with included library modules full of monsters, items, spells, etc. from the D&D SRD.

If you have an Ultimate license, your players don't even need to buy FG.Currently there is no good way for us to post that for sale on Steam, so you'd have to pick that up on our store if you chose to and then install the Demo version on Steam, which will recognize that you have an Ultimate and run that instead.

Also, how customizable is this? can i build entire campaigns from scratch?

also SR5e, GURPS, DarkHeresy/DeathWatch and d20Modern support plz?

Rulesets for DnD 3.5 + all supplements implemented when?
also what USPs do you have as opposed to roll20?

convince me to spend 150 bucks.

also, when in possesion of the ultimate pack (and extra rulesets like call of cthulu), do players connecting for free then also get the ability to use the extra rulesets?
