Hi Everyone!

First time Fantasy Grounds user, but long time D&D player! (20+ years) :)

I tried the demo and I was sold, so I decided to upgrade to the ultimate version, and here I am!

Although it'll take a bit of time for me to familiarize with the DM tools, I am looking forward to hosting something with the new 5th D&D edition rules. I'd like to write my own adventures, and prefer to play with those who actually like to "roleplay" (as in acting out their character)

but hey... I'm up for anything since it's so hard to find (much alone hook up) with like minds these days. Just looking for a fun experience with what little time I have.

Nice Meeting you all.

Welcome Stephen71.
Fantasy Grounds has a learning curve but it really is a fantastic platform.
Try and grab yourself a game or two as a player to ease yourself in before doing the GM thing.
Visit here often and use the New Posts link https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/search.php?do=getnew&contenttype=vBForum_Post to see games being posted.
Check out this thread and https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?23765-Game-Announcements/page2 and let the GMs know you are keen.
Add your Timezone and your availability (days of week and times) to your profile and/or your signature too.

And watch a couple of videos when you have time.

Welcome to FG!

Never be shy about asking questions. The people here are just about the nicest and helpful you will find on the net. And yes, FG isn't all that transparent regarding how many things work, but it really isn't that hard to get into if you're willing to spend a little time to understand it.

And if you'r einterested, the Adventurers League games are a great way to learn the program without having to commit to a full campaign. Feel free to sign up for any games in the Game Announcements thread or via the Adventurers league online tool referenced there.
