Okay have a couple of questions. If there is a document or video that explains any of these please point me to them.


What is the common voice communication used when playing? I have seen Discord, Teamspeak, Google Hangouts, Skype, and who knows what else. What do you recommend?

I have several really imporant NPCs, one of them is even a Wild Card. I notice that when I use FG it does not track encumbrance penalties for NPC's. I don't like the fact that their encumbrance is not tracked, but am I better to leave them as NPC's or make them GM owned characters.

The party has a mule that will carry some of their gear. Currently I have it as an NPC and added the gear to the Party Tracker. Is there a better way to do this?

Lastly, I noticed on the party tracker that NPCs can only be put the marching order as pins. Is there something I am doing wrong?

It's all individual preference. The main two seem to be TeamSpeak or Discord - probably due to there each having a free to use server for FG games:

Drag the token from the NPC sheet or the Combat Tracker to the "Marching & Formation" map.
