Hi!

My name is Clark Peterson. I run Necromancer Games. I think I am going to send all our fans over to this site to check this software out. I am absolutely floored by the demo and if the real program even delivers on 1/3rd of what it seems to promise, this software will be the best thing I have seen in some time. Truly amazing!

I emailed the developers. Hopefully they will send me buttons to put on our main page. I want to get everyone I can to use this stuff!

Parallel modules of your pen and paper products offered thru say prgnow.com, pre-modularized for FG use would be swell < grin >

God bless,

Awesome...I would love to see cooperation between FG and Necromancer.

BTW, Clark...thanks. I can't think of something you guys have put out that I don't really dig...

I would love to offer parallel pre-modularized-for-FG versions of our products.

By the way, if anyone wants to do a conversion of our free adventure the Wizard's Amulet, I am by this email giving blanket permission for anyone to convert and distribute a FG-modularized version of that adventure.

(obviously, anyone can convert and use a module for their personal use or the use of their game group, but there would be restrictions on distribution beyond personal use without permission, which is why I am giving the permission that I give above so you know you dont have anything to worry about if you make and distribute a FG version of the Wizard's Amulet).

No problem!!!

I love the idea of a virtual table top. I loved playing on the original Scared Lands online chat game when d20 first started. But I really found the interface lacking. So this has been a little pet interest of mine.

I havent yet been contacted by the software developers (guys, if you are listening, email me at clark -at- necromancergames -dot- com) but when I am contacted I'd like to talk about a way to give people permission to convert and create FG-modularized version of Necro modules. I dont know how to do it yet and would need help doing it. But I would love to help pump up this whole genre of gaming! And I am pimping this site hard on our message boards (and even on ENWorld).

So someone please go do a Wizard's Amulet conversion!!!

Adventure can be found here:

for the inet search impaired. :)


I took a real quick look though and it seems pretty good. No maps though that I saw.

Well, we had the Code Monkeys here for a while and now Necromancer's. I guess as long as you guys don't merge and become the Undead Code Monkeys we'll be ok.

There is a great tool for getting large amounts of text into FG here:
http://forums.fantasygrounds.com/viewtopic.php?t=346

but it requires that the text start out in Word. It breaks it up into pages, dm text and chat box text.

Would it be possible for either you to use this to get the text into a FG module and then give us the .mod to work with or

supply the adventure in word/text form so we can do the above. Retyping in all the text is quite a chore. If you want to you can email it to me at [email protected] and I'll work on converting it over the weekend (as time permits) and make it available.

Thanks,

rv

I'll email you the Wizard's Amulet in text (Word) format tonite. And I will also include the cheesy maps, though map updates in Dundjinni might be better.

Responding to the Summon Vampire spell that Orcus cast....

Cool stuff.

I'm also from the Necromancer Games boards. I've been looking for the best virtual tabletop for quite awhile. Orcus' recommendation goes a long way with me.

I think that if you guys want to be successful you really need to partner with module publishers out there. Necromancer Games would be a great partner, I suggest that you do a deal!

Whether Necro's stuff or any other publisher's stuff gets out there through an agreement between Necro and FG, or however else, I think we can all agree as players that we just want the stuff out there...

I dunno about you guys, but the thought of having a couple of key publishers on board with this app just totally rocks. I would love to see guys like Monte and the Goodman Games guys follow suit!

Ha! I'm lazier then you. :)

How about you work on the text and I'll work on some maps?

This all sound very promising. I would like to see the conversion of the Wizards Amulets as a cooperative commnunity work. msd started a discussion at his site about the conversion.

Wow, that is a very nice adventure. I like the different options that are given and the side bars. Are all your modules that good?!

Sigh... I guess I'll have to buy some.

Not to pimp Necro on someone else's board but seeing as Necro is pimping FG, dude...yeah. If you don't have The Crucible of Freya, definitely good pickup, The Grey Citadel, The Lost City of Barakus., etc.

All good stuff...

I am very good at maps and such....... Photoshop/illustrator user... I could help if you like, as I am trying to expand my portfolio anyways....

Also, I am working on a workaround for the importing of Etools characters, Monsters and such. (I am going a different route, making the program output an xsl style sheet that mimics the format of FG so you can manually cut and paste the entries into your xml file)

Anything that I can do to help... let me know.

Sweet! Necormancer stuff is awesome! Let me know when you get that mod finished, I'd love to use it. Also, I would love to see Necromancer modules converted to FG format -I'd buy that for the same price (perhaps a bit more, like 25%-30%) than a module PDF.

I second that! I own a bunch of Necro products, and all of it is top notch!
