There's an update (version 4) to the Foundations Core extension for The One Ring. The extension adds Eye of Sauron check marks against the common skills for those who have Rivendell and want to play High Elves.

Foundations Core folder (https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B75Lr5C1Hpx3RTRremljMXo3N1E&usp=sharing)
You need the foundations_core.pak file for the base ruleset (put in the rulesets folder).
The fcore-TOR.ext file for the extension for The One Ring (put in the extensions folder).

Another update to the Foundation Core extension for The One Ring, thanks to Seosaidh. This update adds the dice icons for the feat and success dice in the game. In the Google Drive folder linked above.

Thank you so much for this one :)
Do you plan on making some visual improvements? or you no longer will update the ruleset/ext...?
One question what's the db.xml in the resources file?? its some kind of update or other thing?

Valarian

sample characters, iirc
improvements are likely to be functional rather than visual. I'm no artist

The resources zip file contains:
- a stance sheet (for combat) by voidstate on the C7 forums
- portraits of the stock pre-generated characters
- db.xml file containing the stock pre-generated characters

The portraits are copyright of Cubicle 7 and credit goes to (probably) Jon Hodgson.
Hopefully, the 64x64 portraits I've provided fit under the realms of fair-use or sample.

The pre-generated character sheets are available from Cubicle 7's downloads page

Thank you Valarian! and congrats for your amazing work!

Im using your TOR ruleset. I did three adventures with it and now we are doing the fourth adventure!

I've updated the extension (version 5) for The One Ring to include a tab on the NPC sheet for light-side NPCs. This has the stat blocks found in The Heart of the Wild and Rivendell. Up to 6 relevant skills and 6 Specialities / Distinctive Features catered for. Die rolls from the tab roll the character dice rather than the adversary dice. Good for people like Amfossa, etc.

There's also an update to the TOR-Resources zip file. It's now basically a sample campaign file, drop the contents in to a newly created TOR campaign to get the sample characters. One thing of note, there's a Eye of Mordor tracker and an Eye token to use with it.

Awesome! I only recently got into The One Ring RPG (having been pretty invested in the CODA Lord of the Rings RPG by Decipher) and was hoping someone out there in the interwebz had done the rules for Fantasy Grounds.

Hi I'm very new to FG and trying to see if I can get TOR to be my first FG game. I downloaded all of files in the Google Drive that were created for TOR.
I have a Mac Pro and purchased FG through Steam.

I want to replace what has been removed, as I own all the TOR books and PDFS. I am able to open the library and see the Adventurer mod with Parts 1-4. I can add verbiage to the Callings, so I thought I could update the other sections. It won't let me.

I've been checking out videos and links to tutorials, indicating I can open a .mod file (change .mod to .zip) and successfully did so. I found the common.xml where I added the verbiage I wanted. I saved it and re-compressed the TOR-Player folder. I then changed the.zip to .mod and then placed it back into the Modules folder in FG.

I can't get it to appear in the library. Can someone let me know what I'm doing wrong? I just want to add more verbiage to the Adventurer data mod.

Thanks.

When you re-zipped the module did you do so from within the directory where all the data was - i.e. select all the files and ZIP from there? Don't ZIP from outside the directory - i.e. don't just select the directory name and ZIP that. If you open the resulting ZIP file you should see all of the module XML immediately, not a top level directory.

Also, use standard ZIP compression - don't use RAR, 7z, etc..

Eberronknight
June 5th, 2015, 16:44
Thank you Trenloe! That was the issue, it works now!

Any reason why I could update verbiage to the Callings section and not the other sections? Just curious as that seemed easier to do in FG versus unzipping and updating the XML and then re-zipping again.

Valarian

You should be able to add flavour text back in. A lot of that would be in the reference section at the bottom of the file.

Hi Valarian! Before posting to the forum, I was able to add flavor text back in but only for the Callings section while FG was running. I didn't have to open the Players.mod and unzip and edit the XML. Here is a screenshot example where with the Scholar, I added flavor... I just could just click my mouse in this section and type info in. I could do the same for Slayer, Treasure Hunter, Wanderer and Warden. When I go to the other sections, I can not just click and edit.

10146

I was thinking maybe it was a Mac issue as I read some threads where Mac doesn't play nice with some editing.

Valarian
June 5th, 2015, 17:39
You shouldn't be able to edit directly in to the library entries at all. Very strange. Does it save the changes to the module? Are they still there if you create a new campaign and open the library? It may be that it's creating a local copy of the reference item for some of the entries. Basically, you have to unzip the module, edit the data file and then re-zip (from within the directory as Trenloe notes above).

Trenloe
June 5th, 2015, 17:53

These changes/additions will only be available within the campaign where the edits were made. All modules are read-only in terms of the base module data not be able to be changed through the FG interface - unless you write an extension to specifically update module data, there is only one such extension that I know of and this is specific to the Savage Worlds ruleset.

It does save the changes to the module. At first I thought it wouldn't, I would close everything down and go back in and my flavor was still there.
If I create a new campaign and open the library, the flavor is gone.

Must be some weird glitch, I thought that would be way too easy. I am brand new to FG so I did not write any extensions of my own, I just placed the files in the folders and went into the FG interface. I figured maybe there was a way to make modules read/edit somehow as I was able to do so with the Callings section.

No worries, I'm doing it as you guys are instructing. I've got a lot to add but I so appreciate you guys giving us TOR fans something to work with!

Thanks to both of you, I was just trying to understand how to add and edit and don't mind going through the normal editing of the data file. :)

Valarian
June 5th, 2015, 18:55
Unfortunately each person has to do their own file. The template gives you the skill names, stats, etc. But none of the flavour or description. An official module would be nice but, from conversations with C7, I don't think their license extends to be able to do that.

Eberronknight
June 5th, 2015, 18:57
I totally get it. :)

Thanks again!

The flavor missing in the new campaign proves that the data is *not* getting saved to the base module.

For some fields in a module, FG gives the appearance that you've edited the module but you haven't edited the base module - the changes are stored in the campaign and "merged" with the module data just for that campaign. The changes aren't applied to the base module.

Hey guys, so I've been working the last week with adding data to the library from my TOR pdf. I just got to Part 3: Fundamentals and noticed 08. Treasure isn't displaying. So looking at the .mod, I noticed you had the ID for "09. Standing" as ID00008, which I assumed it overwrote "08. Treasure" as it was using the same ID.

I just edited the "09. Standing" to ID00009 and now 08. Treasure is showing. Just a FYI.

Valarian
June 15th, 2015, 08:31
Thanks. I'll have to have a look in my own version, and fix the template version.

Hey Valarian, found something else. Should I continue to post to this thread or send you a PM? Not sure what the proper protocol is for the FG boards.

Cultural Virtues- Beornings
Great Strength

When I click on Great Strength is goes to "Giant Strength". I just renamed the string to Great Strength and appears fine now.

Ok the rest of the TOR- Player mod looks good, went through everything in that file. :)

So I began making a character.

*update* I had an issue with getting the portrait/token to show up on the character but figured it out for the Campaign but I still can't get it to work for Manage Character. See attached photo, I can click on Portraits and they display photos I want but I can't click/drag them to the gold ring on the character sheet. Is this not possible?

Also, how do I get the Dice to show the Eye of Sauron or Gandalf's Rune? I saw the graphic images in the core-TOR.ext when I opened it up. Sorry, again just learning everything with FG, it's just been a few weeks into this. :)

Thanks for this great Ruleset!
We tried it last week and it worked really well.
Just two issues..

1) If we roll the normal dice (means not the success dice from the character sheet, which work well) the result dices are not showing their numbers in the chat. they are just plain dark gray. does anyone else have this problem?

10303

2) All my players say that they cannot see any tab labels in the character sheet, means the tab title "Main", "Combat" etc. is empty instead. I do not have this problem myself, even if I connect to myself localy, but each of my remote players. anyone else experiences this problem?

Thank you!

- portraits: only the player can do this himself if he connects and selects his character. You can do this yourself, if you start fantasygrounds a second time and connect to yourself with a local IP (no need for a license in local connect)

- Gandalf/Sauron shows up if you roll the skill by double-clicking inside teh character sheet

I just noticed the same, the dice are not showing their numbers in chat, just as the photo you attached.

Thanks! I didn't get that far to try it out with the skill rolling. Cool! I was figuring about the player adding his own photo, I will try connecting with a local IP to add the photo.

The dice rolls work off the skills, either by drag and drop to the chat windows or double-clicking the skill rating. Weary state reduction of the rolls is automatically recognised when the weary state is ticked.

The normal die rolls showing a blank die is connected to the graphics override to show the custom dice faces.

Valarian
June 22nd, 2015, 06:35
The tab problem could be a corrupt player file. They could remove the downloaded file in their cache folder and the reconnect. It may also be an old version of the Foundation Core ruleset in their local ruleset folder. They should check and download from the folder below or from the link in the wiki.

Then there seems to be something wrong..if I roll teh normal dice they show just blanks... this makes rolling dice other than skills nearly impossible :-(

Hello. Sorry for the newb question but I have been really struggling to get the combat tracker to work. I can get it to work if I use the DnD modules so it is something specific to One Ring. I get targeting to work but then One Ring module does not recognise the targeting and the die rolls though they look perfect are not applied to the target. Also when I type /export the export window does not have the export button at the bottom. This works fine for me with the DnD modules. So where am I going wrong?

Trenloe
August 18th, 2015, 20:45

I don't think targeting has been implemented in this ruleset. Targeting is always one of the most difficult pieces of functionality to develop correctly, so it is very often left until a later release or left upto the GM and players to do manually. The framework is there for you to play The One Ring, there are just some game mechanics you'll need to do manually.


Also when I type /export the export window does not have the export button at the bottom. This works fine for me with the DnD modules. So where am I going wrong?
Right-click and select "Export". If in doubt always right-click to get a context sensitive menu.

Hi, I have the Extension for The One Ring by Valarian (if I remember correctly) and it is great.

I have been preparing the maps and adversaries to play The Theft of The Moon (a great fan based intro scenario by Zed) and everything seems fine.

I then started to add generic adversaries from the books: orcs, spiders etc. This again is fine, apart from that when I come to select them I have a big long list of adversaries to scroll though to find the ones I want, and I have only added a fraction of the adversaries available.

My questions are:

1. Is it possible to create folders in the adversaries tab so that I can put all orcs in one, all spiders in another etc?

2. Is it possible to resize the windows that the maps and items appear in? I play as a player in a WFRP 3e game and an arrow icon appears if you mouse over the edges of maps, but this isn't seeming to happen in this.

3. How do you add player characters to the combat tracker? I can add adversaries fine and they appear with their stats, but I can't seem to add the player characters.

4. Is it possible to add magic items? If so how?

Thanks in advance for anyone who is able to help me.

Loving this game and can't wait to finally play over Fantasy Grounds, as I live in an area where there are no groups that I am aware of. And I have little time to join a group. Stupid work!

1. Right-click and add categories to the NPC area. Name them by writing in the chat area and dragging to the category icon.
2. Press CTRL and drag the edges of the windows.
3. Drag from the portrait of the character in the top left to the combat tracker.
4. Magic items are just items. Add description. Or create a note and add it to the notes area.

I have a question about the character sheet. On the GM client its showing the names of the tabs. But when the player looks at the player sheet the only tab they can read is the Main tab, all the other tabs are unnamed. How would I fix this?

Okay i worked it out. I copied the files below from the fcore-TOR.ext to the foundations_core.pak

charsheet.xml
charsheet_combat.xml
charsheet_fellowship.xml
charsheet_gear.xml
charsheet_listitems.xml
charsheet_main.xml
charsheet_notes.xml
charsheet_rewards.xml
charsheet_years.xml

Seems to work out okay. But I didn't extensively test it.

Also how does a client zoom into a image, it seems to just move the player tokens. How do you resize the image on both gm and player client? I cannot make it a rectangle.

Valarian
May 6th, 2016, 20:00
You don't need to copy the files. Put the foundation_core.pak file in rulesets and the .ext file in extensions. You select the extension when starting a campaign and this puts the files over the base. You'll be missing all the NPC and combat tracker functionality.

Resizing the image, you press CTRL and drag the edge of the image.
Zoom in - press CTRL, go to the + icon in the bottom right of the image, move mouse up / down.

Durak
May 11th, 2016, 19:14
I did what you said. I did turn on the Extension when creating the campaign. I put the files in the correct folders. But the player client does not see the tab names in his client. The GM sees everything the way you said.

I show you what i mean.
Player View

(removed pic)

GM View

(removed pic)

You can see on the player view there are no names on the other tabs. Also you can see the icon for moving the view in the GM screen is not on the image for player view. So they don't have the ability to move the view around. But CTRL does resize the window.

Valarian
May 11th, 2016, 19:24
This will be down to not having images in the foundations folder that were in the extension. You need to utilise the extension.

Valarian
May 12th, 2016, 09:31

Have you seen this? Syrinscape has an Esteren Dearg soundset under development. Subscribers can see and play it, not sure it's in general release yet. (I agree with the poster that the music is a cut above most Syrinscape content, which ranges from good to quite good already.) https://forum.syrinscape.com/t/esteren-dearg-is-epic/3025

I'm interested, but couldn't do it until later in the year when my work schedule settles down. (But others, charge ahead!)

Glad that you've made yet another ruleset for yet another interesting game! Thanks, Valarian.

I must be doing something wrong because I downloaded the fcore-TOR.pak and cannot get the character sheet to work beyond opening...

How do you mean? There's not a lot to the character sheet beyond standard Fantasy Grounds form filling, just the double-click or drag-and-drop on skill and other number fields to roll the dice. Have you opened a campaign, or using the character sheet in Manage Characters?

I have a problem with the ruleset.
There is nothing in the "library" , the window is empty.
So I can't see any module or choice what I want in the right panel of FG.
What did I do wrong?

For copyright reasons, the library module provided is a bare bones template only. Have you downloaded the template .mod file and placed it in the modules folder?

The modules menu is an older version. There's a book icon is the top right of the navigation bar, rather than a link in the library itself. To activate the module, double-click or left drag the book icon against the Adventurer module. The module should then appear in the library.

After that, it's a case of unzipping the .mod file and editing the common.xml inside. A lot of cut & pasting later, rezip the unzipped folder, from inside the folder making sure that the definition.xml and common.xml files are in the top folder of the zip file. Then rename to .mod and put back into the modules folder.

Thank you. I don't realize there is an icon library at the top.

Hello. I am not sure how to use all of these files. I have donloaded the rfcore-tor.pak, the tor-player.mod and the tor resources. I am unsure where to put everything though

Try this wiki link that talks about where to install each file.
https://www.fantasygrounds.com/wiki/index.php/Data_Files_Overview

.pak = Ruleset
.mod = Module
.ext = Extension

The easiest way to find your FG data folder is to click the folder button on the upper right of the FG Launch screen.

Still not sure that I'm up to a full campaign, but an intro to the ruleset and a couple of adventures should be okay. I'll see what I can do with timings. How would Sunday afternoon UK time suit? Around 2pm to 6pm ish (https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20181111T14&p1=3592&ah=3).

Yes, the time slot is good for me (8am CST) usually, just have a few non-gaming commitments this month unfortunately.

Though I think Hector may be available for this weekend so if you can get a group together please do so and don't wait for me.

Happy gaming!

I've set up a calendar entry starting the 18th Nov. I'll add a link for voice to the GM announcements once I have something set up.

I'd be very interested (I loved a FGCon game you ran a few years ago). But, after having Sundays free for ages, I'm now busy Octboer 18th and 25th. But then free again after that. I'll keep an eye on this thread to see when you play and if there's a chance for me to join (depending on space and your permission of course!)

The time slot is good depending on the weekend. I could do Nov 18 but Nov 25 is a family holiday. (I can also log in Nov 11 in this time slot.)

Would you want us to make up characters beforehand?

I can't do tonight. We can skip the 25th if the majority can't make it.

Ideally, unless you need help creating the character. Azrapse's character builder, linked in the useful links GM announcement is pretty good at guiding you through the process. I'll start with going through the character sheet in the ruleset, where the information goes and how it works.

Just found that character creator. Pretty slick. Hereís the link for easy reference: http://azrapse.es/tor/sheet.html

I assume you want us to stick with the starting cultures? Iíll make a Woodman of Wilderland, a wanderer who can heal and make campsites on the trail as hospitable as home.

Update: Done! I've used this nifty tool and it eases the character creation process. Next up: find a portrait and choose a name. I'll poke around for collections of Tolkein-styled character portraits... referrals welcome.

FYI-- needs a name but I successfully used this tool. I've got this saved as code so can edit (I think) as needed. I've only skimmed the character creation rules so can't claim to understand the mechanics (but I'll read them more closely in the coming days). This is a character chose for roleplay and inspired by the feeling of vast wilderness and journeying that The One Ring evokes.

Concept: Wanders the lands near and under the eaves of Mirkwood. Makes a hospitable home in the wild for travel companions he befriends, with food, song, healing, and wayfinding.

Couldn't find portrait treasury but here's a couple that will do:

Valarian, a module design question for this rule set: I've exported a module (campaign images that I'd like to keep organized by keeping it separate from other content) and and can see it and open it in the module window, but once it's opened, it doesn't appear in the library or elsewhere. Can you help--is there a trick with listing categories or something to make it compatible so the base ruleset can "see" it?

Hi Hector,

I am sure you have, but... did you look to see if there was a new category in the normal images window (not in the library)? That’s where they should appear, I think.

Your question prompted me to work out part of the solution, thanks:

I hadn't been using the index option, highlighted in yellow. When I did so and re-exported, the module appeared properly in the Library window;
...but I'm having no luck getting it to appear as a category tab in the Images window (see blue highlighting). I did create one when I exported the module (named "Marsh")
Perhaps it's a quirk of this version of CoreRPG? See build version circled in green.


Thanks!

I don’t think it uses CoreRPG, it uses foundations core, which is different.

Looks like the images have appeared, though, so that is something.

If you don’t find another way, you could always edit the module and add the category...

Good point. I've given it a shot, added "Marsh" in both of the following code excerpts (where there had previously been no value), but so far this hasn't added a new category tab to the Images window:

definition.xml :


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<root version="3.3" release="1">
<name>TOR FoMarsh Campaign Elements</name>
<category>Marsh</category>
<author>Hector Trelane</author>
<ruleset>fcore-TOR</ruleset>
</root>


First part of db.xml :


<image>
<category name="Marsh" baseicon="0" decalicon="0">
<id-00001>
<image type="image">
<bitmap>Portrait--Beldan.jpg</bitmap>
