NOTE: Developing for Fantasy Grounds requires varying degrees of technical ability, depending on how you want to customize the tabletop. The technical development may require editing of XML data files or Lua script files.

There are several options to extend Fantasy Grounds:

  • Ruleset: The files that define how a game system implementation looks and behaves on FG.
  • Extension: A modification to an existing ruleset. (themes, house rules, new features, etc.)
  • Module: A data file that defines campaign or reference data to be used with a ruleset. (equipment, spells, creatures, etc.)

If you have any questions, comments or corrections, please post in the Workshop forum.

NOTE: While the Ruleset Reference is up to date with the latest version of FG, the remaining guides have not been updated in years and may be out of date in some ways. I'm looking for people to assist in updating. (JPG - March 14, 2014)
