Fantasy Grounds :: The Virtual Tabletop for Pen Paper Roleplaying Gamesfor download as I am told steam version will cause issues if you have it already.
I currently own all 5E content except the DMG.


Making a DD Character in Fantasy Grounds - YouTubeorFantasy Grounds Adding 5th Edition Module Character Creation - YouTube

I will make up the rules as I go along.

Rule 1: Don't be a dick out of character, if you character is a dick that is fine.
Rule 2: This will be all typing so do not correct typos or grammar if everyone knows what that person meant let it slide. I'm sure I will fuck up in the moment, deal with it.
Rule 3: Judgement free zone, this will be a place to get your nerd on whatever that means for you.

Suggestions: Learn the tool as much as possible on your own time and help everyone be better, also learning DnD 5e rules is a good idea. Fantasy grounds does not stop you from breaking the rules and I don't know most of them yet. Some good info on 5e rules:5th Edition DND Rules and Overview of Combat - YouTube



Donations will all go toward campaign modules and add ons, thank you to all that have donated so far.

Just so I'm clear you're looking to run this Thursdays at 8? How long are you planning the sessions to last? Just want to make sure I can commit to the whole thing and not screw anyone

no worries, even if you think you can only play once a month I suggest giving it a go, recruiting up to 8 players because I expect not everyone will stick.

I'd certainly be interested. (Not sure on wife, but she does such things as well - mentioned it to her while drugged up and got a "Cool...." whatever that translates to)

But kinda busy tonight, she just had a procedure this morning, so AFKs are plentiful with caretaking that would prevent me from not feeling like a fifth wheel tonight.

I'm very interested, but can't get on to make a character tonight. The Thursday evening thing is what works for me. If possible, I'd like one of the 4-8 spots for tomorrow (I'm assuming tonight is just for fun, and won't carry over to whatever campaign you begin for the weekly).

Logging on now to create.

I've always wondered what a Dragonborn Barbarian would be like...

Count me as a maybe for this, I'd really love to dip my toes back into "tabletop" again. Can't do chargen tonight because I'm a bit under the weather and sleep deprived, but I'll try and hook up with you later.

I have 4 characters made by various folks, one is RL friend and I know he is going to play. So far we have Druid, Warlock X2 and fighter.

Will leave the game up so feel free to mess with it.

Might be interested, I'll have to look into it. I got nothing better to do on Thursday night but it's been a long time since I did real DnD. I assume it takes a mic, which means I'll have to locate mine.

Edit - read it all typing. Sounds good to me even better. Gonna make a character after lunch.

Yes sir, glad to have you.

Typing will be slower but removes any social awkwardness of new players coming together, that and once we are all familiar with the tool any time lost typing will be made up.

edit: Updated the rules.

I kind of prefer typing. Back in EQ when team speak was still kind of rare I typed out all the shit for the guild as we raided and such.

It looks like you may have to buy the full version in order to join. The version that installs does not have the same functions as in the demo video. Will try again later today after work if it is still open.

This is probably a stupid question but for this we should start at lvl 3?

No, you need to open your library and add the modules, you then have access to the player side and can add a new character.

No, I will run something that will gain people levels/teach them how to play.

It appears every time I hit "start" it creates a blank level 0 character. But then I have no idea how to change the name or actually roll that character, but I have 3 level 0's.

I get to where I can open a set of maps that I assume go with this game and added 5e rules automatically, but still no idea on how to start my character. If I hit the green + it just throws in a level 0 again.

Sorry for being a dumb asses, it's probably super clear. I get someone named Nalgah at the top of my screen and that's about it.

Nm getting somewhere adding modules now. Nm apparently those were automatically added when I started on this game with the 5e modules.

Once you assign a guy double click the top icon assigned to you to access the character sheet.

How you create a character is you login, green plus sign, open your library, click modules, open the two closed books, go back to library and click the DD PHB deluxe, you can then click and drag the class/feats/backgrounds etc into your character sheet.
