Thanks for putting this list of items together. :) Where do I place the files from the "Enhanced Bestiary 1"? As they are xml files I'm a bit unsure where as all the others were .mod files so I put them in the Modules directory.

Rename the .zip file extension to .mod. However, this is actually for the older d20_JPG ruleset, and there is a Pathfinder bestiary 1 included with the standard 3.5E/Pathfinder so I'd just go with the standard one.

It would be nice if there was something like this that covered Human opponents/NPCs. Things like 2-3 variations of every class at each level, brigands, soldiers, guards etc....

Perhaps the NPC file does that... will have to look.

The Gamesmastery Guide NPCs are there for that. They don't do it at every level, but they give a good range. Details available here:

I'm creating this sticky thread to make OGL 3.5E and PF modules easier to find. Please post a link to your modules below.

Thanks for posting this. I've downloaded and installed the demo version of Fantasy Grounds, and managed to figure out how to load up the 3 Pathfinder thingys that come pre-installed, but I was wondering if / where / how other Pathfinder materials (such as the Bestiary 2 and 3) were.

Thanks for this thread (and yay! my first Message Boards post!). :)

I built this module using Trenloe's monster parser and the Pathfinder PRD.
It is basically a bunch of NPCs that are available from the client side. It seems pretty handy but it would be a little cooler if you could drag them into the character sheet somehow and they could be brought into the tracker from there. Without an extension or new feature there doesn't seem to much more to be done with them.. but even so they allow for players to have reference to their familiar's stats and make untargeted rolls without having a separate character loaded.
I've built the same sort of thing for Summoned Monsters but I haven't quite gotten them working the way I'd like yet. Right now I have separate modules for each level of the spell... once I have them combined into one module I'll post that up too.

EDIT: Oops. Forgot to add a common file. Should be happier now on the client side.
EDIT: The File has been uploaded to a later post with all of my Summons and Familiar Modules.

Very nice, Blackfoot.

I started making a similar "summonables" hero lab portfolio, although I was basing mine on the template to be applied (Celestial, Fiendish, Resolute, or Entropic). Note that, except for the Viper, these are also the same animals that can be summoned with the Summon Minor Ally and Summon Minor Monster spells.. so it has an additional use there.

Has there been any thought to creating the higher levels of the Summon Monster lists? I've got a player using enhanced Summon Monster IV, so it would be great to have that (or to learn how to create it myself!)

August 10th, 2012, 16:27
I second that. My players are completely and utterly in love with modules I & II. And I like 'em even more. It is so great, when running a long combat, to not have to worry about the PCs summoned monsters. For them to run their creatures themselves is such a huge time saver.

My players love those modules so much they only summon level I & II monsters, even though they're 14/15th level characters.

How do they do that? I had a player running a Conjuror last night summon an enhanced Air Elemental. What I did was get it from the Bestiary and drag it into the CT. I edited the stats there in the CT, gave it a token and added the token to the map. He told me what he wanted the Air Elemental to do and I did it. Is it possible to give the client playing the Conjuror access to run that Air Elemental? I don't mean just moving tokens around, but can the client have control of more than one creature (themselves) in the CT?

Blackfoot
August 10th, 2012, 17:20
I'm glad you are getting some use of them. I have some of the higher level ones built.. or at least started.. they are more tedious than hard to build... I just need to make a little time. I'll see about doing them tonight.

I'd have to test it again to be sure, because it was a month ago. But from memory, I add the summoned monster to the CT from Blackfoot's module. I then set the monster to 'friendly' on the CT, which means the PCs can move the token. Then, when it comes time for the monster to roll attack and damage, etc., the PCs open Blackfoot's module and drag the attack and damage strings directly to the chat box. Or maybe they dragged the strings directly to the bad guy tokens they were fighting, using damage drop, etc.

Either way, they're moving the tokens, they're rolling for attack and damage, and I can focus on other things.

Great news! I won't be running another game for at least another week or so, maybe longer, but it will be great to have those modules.

Ah, I did change it to friendly in the CT, but I guess that we didn't actually try having the guy running the Conjuror actually move the token. I think he tried attacking using the entries in the CT, but for some reason it didn't work. Next time we do that, we'll test it in more depth. It certainly would be nice for players to be able to control their own conjured creatures.

Paizo declares all of their rules content as Open. If it was not, D20PFSRD could not host it.

Being in the PRD is not a requirement to be open content, although only open content goes into the PRD. Regardless, the ARG content has been added to the PRD, anyway. :)

Just to be clear here - there are 2 main areas of the OGL that need to be considered "Open Content" and "Product Identity". As an example, from the recently released Advanced Race Guide:

Product Identity: The following items are hereby identified as Product Identity, as defined in the Open Game License version 1.0a, Section 1(e), and are not Open Content: All trademarks, registered trademarks, proper names (characters, deities, etc.), dialogue, plots, storylines, locations, characters, artwork, and trade dress. (Elements that have previously been designated as Open Game Content or are in the public domain are not included in this declaration.)
Open Content: Except for material designated as Product Identity (see above), the game mechanics of this Paizo Publishing game product are Open Game Content, as defined in the Open Gaming License version 1.0a Section 1(d). No portion of this work other than the material designated as Open Game Content may be reproduced in any form without written permission.
Open content can be distributed, product identity cannot. So, in theory, you can't distribute "stuff" with Pathfinder specific proper names. However, if you are distributing material for free into the community you can use the Paizo community use policy to be able to use proper names etc..

Ahoy Community,

I'm rather new to running Pathfinder with FGII, I'm curious as where is the best place to find ready made FGII adventure modules for Pathfinder. When we ran 3.5 we used the module Orcfest. I am having trouble finding many other examples of preset scenarios. My end goal is to run my own scenarios but the idea of having examples of how to best organize adventure material using the FGII system is very appealing to me. Any help would be appreciated!

When you go to 'Module Activation' you see the modules listed and books open, but when you go back to the 'Library' the modules are not on the list?

You have the modules in your 'modules' folder under Application Data.. and they are zipped up or unzipped?

Are you running on a Mac or something by any chance?
Are you running FG version 2.9.1?

The problem is that the modules listed on the first page of the thread are zipped files within zipped files.

The majority of them need to be unzipped first, then re-name the unzipped file .mod

They will then show up in FG.

Was there a parser built to create the modules (i.e. the equipment module)? Or were these hand entered?

I manually added the firearms to this file, but it's so tedious, I'd rather write something to scrape this off of http://www.d20pfsrd.com and make the modules.

Rands
March 4th, 2013, 20:44
You can do a scrape, but you will still need to go through and correct errors in the resulting file.

Depends which you find more tedious, error checking in a large file, or manually entering just the equipment your players will actually use.

I've just released the first development build of a new module parser for FGII, its called PAR5E. The tool has been developed with support for multiple FGII rulesets and RPG systems in mind. Its currently bundled with a library that can parse D&D 5E/Next content for the new 5E FGII ruleset (in development). Moving forward I plan to release (or support) additional Libraries for other key FGII rulesets in the future.

Before then, if anyone is interested they are free to take the bundled 5E library (using it as a template) to create a 3.5E and/or Pathfinder specific version. Once its developed I'd be happy to bundle it in the master github repo.

As an example of what's possible, the bundled 5E library supports the parsing of:


Adventuring Gear
Armor
Backgrounds
Classes
Encounters
Feats
Images & Maps
Image Pins
Magic Items
Maneuvers
NPCs
Reference Manual (with automatic formatting of text to formatted text)
Skills
Specialities
Spells
Story (with automatic formatting of text to formatted text)
Tables (Rollable)
Tokens (with auto linking)
Traps/Hazards
Treasure Parcels
Weapons


PAR5E also supports full content cross-referencing allowing you to create nice indexes and shortcut links to any module content object very easily.

PAR5E currently accepts text files for input and therefore supports traditional cut n pasting of data from PDFs or can be used in conjunction with an online scraper. As PAR5E is written in Perl its available to run on Windows/OSX and Linux and as its based on a scripting language its quite straightforward to update with new features or additional custom Libraries for any FGII ruleset.

More information can be found over at GitHub: https://github.com/drzeuss/PAR5E

This sounds really good. I was going to write a scraper in Python using Beautiful Soup to grab and parse out the table data. I could use the files created as an input for Par5e. This would save me the work of massaging the data into module format.

I see that the Ruleset Creation documentation isn't in the Par5e manual. I'm very interested in seeing it and seeing if I can make something for 3.5/Pathfinder and possibly Numenera (when it comes out. I am a kickstarter backer for it.).

Give me a few days, I'll release some developer documentation. At a high level the main app operates a standard loop. The Library (when initialised) registers the data types its supports as well as the key subroutines to handle the parsing action. When a parse action is initiated, the main app loops; each time operating on one of the registered data types, the main app provides a support library for opening/closing/reading and writing files and calling the registered Library handlers for:

- Parsing the data into internal data structures - I used HASH tables for 5E
- Generating lists of data - for FGII's window lists
- Writing the data out in module XML
- Writing the modules's definition (again in XML)

If you take a look at the PAR5Ednd5elib.pm and/or the PAR5Etemplatelib.pm in the subfolder PAR5E, you can get an idea of how it works. Each library exports 3 public routines: initLibrary(), registerDataItems() and registerCustomActions() which perform the initial registration of data and routines.

PAR5E uses abstracted subroutine references to call the custom action routines like parseData, generateReferenceList, copyImages, copyTokens, writeData, writeDefinition, writeReferenceLibrary. Each of these routines is either passed a string to parse or an XML writer object to work on.

Cool. I look forward to reading it and seeing what I can do.

With the part of PAR5E used for the Story mode, it sounds like that is ruleset independent?

Yes, pretty much. Same for Encounters (Combats), Treasure Parcels, Tables (Rollable).

It wouldn't take much to convert the other data classes, just some examples of the stat blocks, some tweaks to the regex and output XML.

Did you work out all your questions?

.mod files are module files that get loaded into fantasy grounds from your FantasyGrounds/modules folder... then you go to the Library within FG and open click the 'Module Activation' button... you'll be able to activate your Pathfinder modules in the window that opens.

It's from the SRD, which is posted on that site. I don't know what source was used to create the modules, so I don't know if *everything* from d20srd is in the modules. The store entry does say "Over 800 pages of information taken directly from the Standard Reference Document...".

It also says it's for the default d20 ruleset, which has been around for a while but the format of data is similar to the 3.5e ruleset.

As this list increases... it seems like it would be a good idea to take advantage of one of the functions built into modules. If, when building addon modules, you give them a categoryname other than PFRPG Essentials they will get sorted into a separate group from the 'standard' material. This seems good for many of these, especially NPCs or Magic Items or whatever that isn't part of the basic 'Essentials'.
I've built all my modules as PFRPG Extras which puts them into their own separate category and seems to work out really well.

Also.. some consistent naming and imagery makes them look better in the library.

So, each time you want to download something from this site you're going to rely on someone to download them and email them to you? Why not just download a browser like Firefox and give that a go - if that fails too just uninstall it. This will help to identify if the problem is your browser or not.

One more thing since I am being a pain in the A$$...does the ext file for controlling the mod files not work for Pathfinder in 3.0?

Does it have to do with the name? I opened a campaign folder I am working on in 3.0 PF and there is an extensionstate XML that only lists the backgrounds but nothing else. Do the extensions have to be enabled(for lack of a better word) for PF?

Here is what is in the XML, I tried but can't seem to edit it.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

Which extension are you referring to? The answer is it may work, but it will need to have the compatible rulesets listed in the extension.xml file. In FG 3.0, Pathfinder is a specific ruleset (although heavily based on the 3.5e ruleset via the ruleset layers) so extensions will need to have the PFRPG ruleset added to the compatible rulesets in the extension. e.g.:

<ruleset>
<name>PFRPG</name>
</ruleset>

Someone somewhere has to create the data module, there's no one whose task it is specifically to do it.

Any OGL material or data that is covered by the Pathfinder community use policy (if you adhere to this policy) can be included in a Fantasy Grounds data module and distributed.

It depends on the material. If it is a scenario, then the only OGL material that may be distributed is the NPC/Trap statblocks. Campaign/Player Companion books are similar - only OGL stuff (feats, spells, etc.) can be distributed.

But, the main hardback rulebooks are essentially 100% OGL (not the product identity stuff in the Inner Sea Campaign Guide) - and the contents of these can be distributed for free. These are all included in the PRD: http://paizo.com/prd/

Is there anything you are looking for in particular?

Whereas new feats, etc. would be quite nice - Fantasy Grounds isn't really a character generation application. Yes, it stores all your character data, but it can import characters from Hero Lab and PCGen. Having modules covering all of the feats, etc. may have limited value - YMMV depending on what you're looking for. I usually find it is just as easy to copy/paste the feat text into a new blank feat entry on the character sheet.

Some of the modules Nickademus has put together for commonly used race and class abilties/feats are useful as these are often used:

Race Module. (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?19363-Character-Race-Module)

Look here (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?16074-List-of-Modules) for the PFSRD Complete Paizo * modules as well as the Feats, traits, equipment and Effects from the second post. And there are the race & class modules of course,

Some of the new books might not be available yet, but someone will get around to them. Remember, anything from the Pathfinder Chronicles, Companion, or Campaign Setting can not be put into a distributed module due to not being covered under OGL. There are generic versions of this content on the SRD but it may not have been parsed into the compilations.

As Trenloe asked, anything specific?

Trenloe
February 19th, 2014, 09:52
Remember, anything from the Pathfinder Chronicles, Companion, or Campaign Setting can not be put into a distributed module due to not being covered under OGL.
To be clear here - 99% of Paizo material produced is released under the Open Gaming License (OGL) - this includes the Pathfinder Chronicles, Player Companion and Campaign Settings books. These books contain a copy of the OGL and usually a statement on main page about product identity and open content.

Open content from these books can be distributed - just like open content from other Paizo products.

The thing to be careful of is what is product identity which cannot be used in distributed content (exception - see the link to the Paizo community use policy below) - which is usually the non-game mechanics and all names (places, deities, characters, etc.), storyline, artwork...

This is taken from a recent Campaign Setting book:


Product Identity: The following items are hereby identified as Product Identity, as defined in the Open Game License version 1.0a, Section 1(e), and are not Open Content: All trademarks, registered trademarks, proper names (characters, deities, etc.), dialogue, plots, storylines, locations, characters, artwork, and trade dress. (Elements that have previously been designated as Open Game Content or are in the public domain are not included in this declaration.)

Open Content: Except for material designated as Product Identity (see above), the game mechanics of this Paizo Publishing game product are Open Game Content, as defined in the Open Gaming License version 1.0a Section 1(d). No portion of this work other than the material designated as Open Game Content may be reproduced in any form without written permission.

The Enhanced Bestiary is quite old and is compatible with the d20_JPG ruleset (the forerunner of the 3.5e ruleset). You should be able to get it to work with 3.5E if you edit the module to run in that ruleset.

If I was a lottery winner, i'd pay to have full FG integration on the character sheet and in play, but what I'm really asking about is a library book with the content listed here:
http://www.d20pfsrd.com/mythic

Again, either way, I appreciate it. I'd be able to return the favor for anyone creating this by exporting my campaign as a series of free adventures. I'm rewriting (rebooting) my published d20 setting, Morningstar, to use Pathfinder and Mythic Adventures, and there will be a lot of content to draw from. If anyone reading this is familiar with it, this version is more "Sword and Sandal", and will turn everything up to 11. :D

Is there a parser such as the 4e one?

Trenloe

Is there a parser such as the 4e one?
There isn't a parser like the 4e one as most of the 3.5e/PF material is covered by the OGL and so once someone puts it in a module it can usually be shared without copyright issue. That's what this thread is about - sharing those modules. The 4e Parser was primarily produced to allow people with a DDI subscription to make their own 4e modules as these modules could not be shared due to 4e not being released as part of the OGL or any other creative commons licence.

There is a Pathfinder creature parser that will produce FG NPC modules from NPC statblocks that adhere to the Paizo statblock standard: http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?20522-Pathfinder-Creature-Parser-V2-Beta-Version

The Parse5e project by DrZeuss could have support for parsing 3.5e/PF formatted text in the future: http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?18123-Project-Par5e

Hmm is there a format that I should use when I make a mod? I only ask because there is a lot of material not covered. I mean trust me what is avaible is a god send. Unless I am missing something....which is possible. Also with the Enhanced Beastiary 1, how do you go about fixing that? Forgive me if it was explained in another part of this thread.

The main thing is to mimic the high level XML structures used by other modules in order to replicate their behavior and potentially work with future data record field changes.

The easiest way is to use a module similar to what you want to end up with (such as bestiary), remove all the details you don't want, and replace with records you do want.

Since much of this is very data entry intensive, people on the forums have come up with their own parsers to automate.

Also, you can export a module directly from an existing FG campaign, if you just want to make adventure data modules. (Which will show up as additional tabs in the sidebar campaign record lists).

When you export the module from FG (using the Module Export functionality) it will create it as both campaign data (the NPCs will be under a tab as normal in the NPCs list) and also a library list will be created.

As damned says this looks like you're running an old version of the 3.5E/PFRPG ruleset. There is no control named "toggle_attack" in the 3.0.6 3.5E or PFRPG ruleset - there was in 3.0.3 though. When you load up your campaign in Fantasy Grounds what version is reported in the chat window? You should see 3.5E or PFRPG version 3.0.6.

Hey Thorun - for those that are ZIP files extract the MOD files.
In explorer address bar or in the windows search feature or in the windows run feature type: %appdata% and press enter. double click the Fantasy Grounds or Fantasy Grounds II folder and then modules. Stick them in there. You then need to Activate them from within Fantasy Grounds as normal.

Do *NOT* put them in the Fantasy Grounds II directory, this is no longer valid.

Your best way to get to the right directory is:

Open Fantasy Grounds. On the first screen click the "Open data folder" icon in the top right (above the 3.0.8 version number).
This opens Windows Explorer at the FG app data folder. Go into the modules directory.
Copy your .MOD files into this directory. Note: the .MOD files will be tagged as video files in Windows (this is just because windows sees .MOD as an old video/audio file format) but if you try to open them they won't play, as they aren't video files they are Fantasy Grounds data modules.

You will then be able to activate these modules within Fantasy Grounds (for the ruleset they are designed for) - see this Wiki entry on module activation: http://www.fantasygrounds.com/wiki/index.php/Library

The module ZIPs that have db.xml and definition.xml in their root directories are meant to be renamed to .mod (instead of .zip) and stored in the modules directory of FG's data folder.

In other words, a .mod file is simply a .zip renamed with a specific archive content.

As far as I'm aware none of them directly download as XML files. As the FG forum doesn't allow uploading of attachments with .mod extension modules need to be packaged as .zip - some module developers just change the .mod extension to .zip, others zip the .mod up within a zip file. If the .mod is changed directly to .zip then when you open the ZIP file it will show the module XML files - I believe this is what Trueshots is referring to when he says the modules download as .xml files.

Don't change .xml to .mod that won't work.

What I was explaining above - you won't be downloading a .xml file directly, you'll be downloading a .zip file - this is true for all downloads in this thread, including the 3 book of the damned. Open the .zip file, if you see within the zipped file a .mod file then just extract that .mod file from the zipped file and put that in your FG \modules folder. If you see XML files when you open the zipped file (in the case of the book of the damned files), exit the zip application and just rename the base .zip file you downloaded to be .mod.

Could someone (Trenloe?) please clarify why there are two 'effects' modules above?



'Conditions and Effects (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?18006-Effects-library&p=153520&viewfull=1#post153520)' takes one to the 'Effects library' thread to acquire 'effects.zip', a .mod file in disguise (i.e., rename it to 'effects.mod' to use).

'3.5e/Pathfinder Effects: 4322' is a direct attachment. The attachment is a zipfile containing a single entry, 'Effects.mod'.

The definition.xml files inside those .mods are identical:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<root version="2.07">
<name>3.5 - Pathfinder Effects Library</name>
<ruleset>3.5E</ruleset>
<author>ArchAngel</author>
</root>

While the common.xml files are nearly identical; and the differences that do exist are all
like the following example pairs:




1: <label type="string">Climbing</label>
2: <label type="string">Climbing; GRANTCA</label>


1: <label type="string">Kneeling</label>
2: <label type="string">Kneeling; AC: -2 melee; AC: 2 ranged</label>


1: <label type="string">Running</label>
2: <label type="string">Running; GRANTCA</label>


Then, starting at item id-00033:


<label type="string">Aid; ATK: 1 morale</label>

and for the next 600+ lines (until almost the very end) they are identical. Then there's a bit of discrepancy involving


1: Charge bonus and Charge penalty vs. 2: Charge

Sorry for all the detail, but I wanted you to know I had done my homework.

So, anyway, what's the story?

Thanks.

- s.west

p.s. While editing and previewing this post the above 'attachment', i.e. 'Effects.zip' shows up with its name. Then, when I post the thread, it becomes, 'Attachment 4322'. Puzzling to me, but, hopefully, not confusing to you.

First, open the ZIp file - if it contains a .mod file just extract that into your <FG App Data>\modules directory. If it includes .XML files inside the ZIP file then rename the .zip file to .mod.

As a first time user of these modules, I was unsure which modules to get so I just got all of them - which was a mistake.
I wanted to help other first time users by letting them know my opinion here of what to grab:

Character Classes and Character Races by Nickademus42 - great work and solves some of the FG issues with character creation by providing links that you can drag/drop to your character for Race specific and class specific abilities. And the classes are very complete including Oracle, Ninja, Gunslinger, etc. These files also have the DOMAINS for Clerics, and other races.

Bestiary 2-4 - Love these because the monsters are at base level - which allows you to type in the library search - a monster and click each bestiary until you can find it. Very nice.

PFRPG Paizo Magic Items and Complete Paizo Spell lists are wonderful. I use them over all the others (PFRPG Magic Items, etc) because they have a list for "ALL Magic Items" or "All Spells" allowing me to just bring that list up - type it into search and there it is. The spell list shows even spells for Oracles and other Classes

The Equipment, Feats and Traits are also great for completing a new character but after its created - I never touch them. They seem to be about 90% complete - with a few of the newer feats, equipment, etc missing (all three need an update but for the most part - they are good).

I also grabbed some extras that I will probably not use much but it does complete my library:
Basic Familiars, Summonable Monsters, etc from Blackfoot -
Standard Conditions File
Advanced Races Guide by RTFallen
The PFRPG Magic Items is more complete than the Paizo Magic Items - so I have it as well but it doesn't contain a "All Magic Items" list which I felt made it harder to use.
PFRPG Basic Rules and PFRPG Advanced Rules - I don't use because I have it all covered above
PFRPG Spells I don't use over Nickademus42 files.
I grabbed the NPC Codex files but haven't used them yet.

So as I said - this is just my opinion but I thought it might help some of the newer users. Dulux has been using them longer so maybe he can jump in with his opinion as well.

Hope this helps

How usable are some of these modules for 3.5? Such as 'Gamesmastery Guide NPCs' and 'NPC Codex'? I don't know much about Pathfinder, other than it is similar to 3.5, but after level 1 don't most of the EL and CR numbers not really match up with 3.5? The 'Gamesmastery Guide NPCs' was already enabled for 3.5, but is listed as 'PFRPG Essentials', so I'm a bit unsure on the compatibility.

Thanks!

You can review the actual stats here: http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/ (links to the relevant guides down the left hand side).

They're usable with 3.5e - just take into account the usual 3.5E/Pathfinder differences, see the 3.5E to Pathfinder conversion guide for more info: http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/v5748btpy89m6

They are to provide library references. And to allow you to drag race and class *abilities* to the Abilities tab.

This is all for reference, they don't automate anything or change the character stats in any way.

It's still nice to have all of these reference entries within your character sheet - all in one place and at your fingertips.

You'll need to download the ZIP files and extract them so you have.mod files. The follow the instructions here: http://www.fantasygrounds.com/wiki/index.php/Data_Files_Overview#Modules You'll need to copy them to <FG App Data>\modules - get to the <FG App Data> directory by clicking the folder icon in the top right of the main FG launch screen.

Then load up a 3.5E or PFRPG campaign and activate the modules you require. Info on module activation here: http://www.fantasygrounds.com/wiki/index.php/Library#Module_Activation

Here's an updated version of the Summon Natures Allies module, with the fire elementals adjusted so that they deal appropriate additonal fire damage with their attacks, and also get fire immunity applied when dropped onto the Combat Tracker. I've also copied the generic elemental descriptions and special ability text into the small elementals (it was already present in all the other sizes).

When I went to fix one of these sorts of things in the past I was told that it was better to report the bug than to actually fix it... that way the creator of the module wouldn't run into 'version' conflicts. Is this not the case? As the creator of this particular module I would be happy to do an update to fix this issue, I found another with one of the higher level dinosaur summonables so I need to fix that as well.

Yeah, you're right, Blackfoot, that does make sense - sorry! I suppose I wasn't thinking of it as a bug fix, more of an enhancement - I'd made the changes for use in my own game, and then thought I might as well share them.

The 3.5E stuff is pretty limited as the WotC SRD wasn't anywhere near as expansive as the Paizo PRD for Pathfinder, and there was very little of the WotC 3.5E material released under the OGL. Community members can't produce non-OGL material without the permission of the copyright holders.


I am looking for complete stuff that is ready to use, hoping it is like the 5th stuff so it can just be dragged/dropped.
This relies on the drag/drop automation being built into the ruleset, not the module. There's basic drag/drop automation for the 3.5E ruleset for PCs, but this is limited to equipment and populating the text of abilities, etc.. There's nothing like the 5E character creation automation.

You still have to drag items to the Campaign items list - as this is where you edit them. Drag your base mundane item to the campaign items list (or create one there), open it and then drag the relevant +X item template from the PFRPG Magic Items module to the mundane item, it will apply the relevant bonus. There are templates for Magic Weapon +1 to Magic Weapon +5, Magic Armor +1 to Magic Armor +5. Then when you drag the weapon to the character sheet, the bonus will be applied to the damage and to-hit bonus. Any armor bonus to AC, etc. has to be manually applied to normal.

You can also drag some abilities (e.g. flaming) to a base item. But you can only do one magical ability this way - e.g. you can't make a +1 flaming longsword this way. If you want to, I'd recommend adding the flaming ability and then manually applying the relevant bonus (+1 in this example).

There's really not much automation involved here, but you can reduce some of the manual process this way. All of this has to be done in the campaign items list, you can't add abilities to items once they are on a character sheet (well, you can - but the code that calculates bonus doesn't run, it only runs when the item is first added to the character sheet).

Greetings,

I have a couple of Modules-related questions:



I notice that there is a new Extensions (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?96-Extensions) subforum under the Armory (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?44-Armory-(campaigns-modules-rulesets-maps-and-tokens)) forum. Good move! I'm wondering why there isn't a corresponding Modules subforum? Are Modules too ruleset-specific for that to make sense? Or maybe there is some other reason?
And,

In Xorn's (Jason Hibdon's) excellent FG: Adventure Building YouTube tutorial, here (timestamped) (https://youtu.be/V-zeGC3e8Ss?list=PLePiBJtKmjLn5IzhpakEcVqAHoYfezZbe&t=736), he describes a method for implicitly linking from the new campaign module he is creating to a token residing in a separate, closed-but-present, module in the modules folder. He also mentions this in his '5E->PAR5E Tutorial' thread here (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?21964-PAR5E-Tutorial&p=219762&viewfull=1#post219762). The relevant text from that post follows:

As far as NPCs when FG-exporting, I just open the NPCs I need in the MM mod, then drag and drop each one's link into the adventure NPCs, like in my Adventure Building tutorial. Re-link the tokens if you want the module to work without the MM module present (or just close the module and /reload to make the tokens work with a closed MM).
I tried (or, at least, I thought I tried... maybe I made a mistake (?)) to do something similar, except that the object to which I want to link is the Diplomacy entry from the list of Skills in the PFRPG Basic Rules Module.

Should that work? Or will I always be required to have that Module open when using this campaign module?


Thanks!

NPCs and Story and Items (and a few other things) will export in your Module. Skills will not. You will need the source module present and activated.

For the most part there have not been a lot of modules shared.

Greetings,

I have a couple of Modules-related questions:
...

1) Modules are usually pretty much ruleset specific.

2) tokens in modules work differently from everything else in a module. Everything else is stored in the FG database format. If you link to data (not tokens) within a module then that module must be installed and activated. Otherwise you'll get an error when you try to open the link: remember this? https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?20794-DOE-Locations-Extension&p=287047&viewfull=1#post287047 ;)

September 5th, 2016, 05:08
Trenloe,

Yes, I remember that, but Xorn's step-by-step instructions, and the /reload operation, appeared to be demonstrating something that would overcome that limitation. However, as you point out, I now see that it's the 'type' of data that Xorn was causing to be implicitly linked (i.e., 'Token' data) that makes his example work.

I get it now.

Thanks.

p.s. I know that you guys probably think that I'm just flying in circles, but, I assure you I am making progress. I have set a goal to become completely fluent in FG before restarting our RotRL campaign in a month (from now)...

Do I even need to do this? Is there an equipment / loot generation module which has these tables already created?

If there is no such table, and I go ahead and finish putting in all this information, is it possible to share it with the community?

What exactly are you creating from the PF Core Rules? the OGL "PFRPG Basic Rules" module that comes with FG has the equipment, weapons and armour tables from the CRB.

I'm copying the tables (the picture shows Table 15-3, armor and shields, major, as well as three rolls on the table to generate results) for all of the magic items... basically every table in chapter 15... to make it easy to generate loot or items from within FG.
