    First thing is to familiarize yourself with the interface.

    If you havnt figured it out yourself yet. You can open two FG instances at the sametime.

    CREATE a game with the first one (this is the DM)

    Then JOIN the first using the second instance (This is the Player) (Use 127.0.0.1 as the Host Address (127.0.0.1 is a reserved IP on a LAN that tell the computer to take a good hard look at ITSELF (Loopback it is called)))

    You can then switch between the too see what happens on each.

    If you havnt already; join Fantasy Grounds College (as above post)

    You can learn the cool stuff in these FREE online classes

    Other than that use the Site Search link at the top of the forums to find answers you are looking for (ignore Effects for now as this is advanced stuff)

    Or just ask on here A response will usally be fairly quick
    "The small town of Swampspittle is a charming reminder of how Faerun use to be.Plague victims crawl eloquently down it's dung filled streets; greasing the way with puss from thier buboes.While at least two children a week are burnt as the devil in the handsome market square. The town boasts two taverns, one humourous dwarf and a shop that sells little things made of straw."

    The best ways to learn the program are to try it, look at some of the tutorial videos, and maybe try out the fan run Fantasy Grounds College.

    If you are patient and check the looking for group forum or the discord channel, you should be able to find a group to join. Also look for FG-Con and FG Daze events.

    Like pen and paper based games, there always is a shortage of game masters, so for any of the main stream games you can quickly find players and a little slower for more niche games.
