I have a couple of quick questions about the Core ruleset

Is there a guide anywhere to the features, laying out a sheet etc?

Also, can you create a character sheet and then save that as a template for each character, or do you have to recreate it for every character?

If you click on the wiki link in the top site nab menu, you can find a link to all the User Guides.

http://www.fantasygrounds.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

These user guides are written for the CoreRPG ruleset, and those derived from it.

Currently, there is not a specific guide for character creation in the CoreRPG ruleset. It's currently just a list of named attributes that you can add dice or numbers to for rolling or applying modifiers directly from sheet.

In the version we have in beta testing, we're adding another tab on the sheet to track textual abilities, and adding sections to the attributes on the main tab.

I've been thinking we needed a copy character option; or , even better, a "copy as template" option. You can simulate the copy character approach by exporting a character to a file, importing character, and changing attributes.

Thanks for that. And yes, "copy" and "copy as template" functions would be fantastic!

also try this thread to get a better idea of how to extend the CoreRPG

And while you are there - back the Ruleset Wizard for Fantasy Groounds so we can see a few more of your games here on FG! No pressure or anything... :)

I have backed it! That would make a big difference to me, and i think FG in general as all of my games both existing and future would be supported straight away.

Must do a bit of promotion for that as well...
