View Full Version : New to FG - Former AL DM/LC

Bad Karma

So for the better part of time since 5E has come out, I've DM'd. I DM'd the last two seasons of AL until my school/workload became too demanding to spare the time. I've clocked in a bit over 2k hours on roll20 DM'ing(mostly)/playing also.

I've heard about FG from a few people and decided to give this a try.

I'm not entirely sure how to navigate FG just yet, but I'm a quick learner. If anyone is looking for a reliable player, hit me up.

I have a couple of T2 characters, and I would be totally down to play non-AL games also.

My name is Elliot.

Thanks for your time.

Hi Elliot, and Welcome! to the Community.

To help you out with the interface: If you haven't done so already, let me encourage you to take a look at some of the great Tutorial Videos available on the Fantasy Grounds Wiki (and on YouTube). Damn's are good, as are Xorn's, and people seem to like mine as well (mine are also available from the links in my sig, below).

Start with the ones on the CoreRPG, because the CoreRPG forms the foundation of just about all the RPGs we play with Fantasy Grounds - so by learning how to use FG with the CoreRPG you'll learn about 80% of what you'll need to know to play any RPG with Fantasy Grounds. Once you've gone through the CoreRPG Videos you can then go on to Videos about your chosen RPG.

When you get familiar with the basic Fantasy Grounds product the next step is to check out some of the Extensions (Plug-Ins) for FG, such as the DOE: Sound, DOE: Locations, DOE: Weather and DOE: Organisations Extensions (to name a but a few).

And keep on asking questions - we're a pretty friendly lot here, and we love answering questions.
