Fantasy Grounds will be providing ready-to-run content for Kobold Press and their Tome of Beasts and Book of Lairs products. It's a great set of resources for all you 5E GM's out there. Check out the very successful Kickstarter they are running for some ways to buy bundled versions of print, pdf and FG versions at a discount over buying them separately.

Once they are complete, they will also be available here in the store and on Steam.

Awesome! I had messaged their Kickstarter account asking about possible Fantasy Ground support, and they said would contact you guys. I'm glad an agreement was reached!

@ddavision.... does this mean that you might distribute non Wizards pre-made modules too?

looks like there is no need to for a 5e ogl as loads of third party companies are producing 5e material,

No there is, at least for PCGen because we can't create a character generator without it. :(

Have you checked out these guys http://www.goatheadsoftware.com/, they do a 5e character generator plus combat tracker with all the Monster manual preloaded

Unless he's only using the Basic Rules and has permission from WotC for that, he's violating copyright. Our policy at PCGen is that we always seek the publishers permission to put anything in, I've contacted WotC three times, two were either ignored or not received. The Last time I was told to wait for the new "license".

Good to see this Tome of Beast being made by KP. D&D 5e needs this even though it is not an official WoTC release.

So to get physical + digital + FG versions it'll be the $90 donation plus increase the donation by $34 = $124?

It would be nice to see a FG package up there.

There already is a package to just get the FG module without any physical goods.

$27 for just the liar book
$39 for just the monster book
$49 for both books

Yea, I saw that and like it.

I meant a package with all physical, Digital, and FG, sorry about that.

lambchopsil
October 29th, 2015, 23:29
Ah, that's what you meant. Yeah, no full package like that :(
FG just isn't big enough to warrant adding another pledge tier. Currently only 39 people got the $49 tier for both FG modules out of over 1.5k backers

That's how many people picked FG only, but what we don't know is how many people (like me) picked another tier and donated extra for FG.

David32780
October 30th, 2015, 00:07
Yea, thats a pretty good show of support for FG.

They added several new tiers just now:
$74 for all 3 formats (PDF, print, and Fantasy Grounds) for just the monster book
$124 for all 3 formats for both books

It adds up to the same as if you got the physical tier with FG as an add-on, so no additional discount :(


I also want to point out that according to the comments in the Kickstarter, the FG-only tier doesn't appear to include the PDFs for the adventures and heroes.

ya last night i changed my pledge to the all 3 formats for 124. seemed like the better deal.
