I have read on a number of forums and reddit that the booklet that comes part of the gamemasters toolkit contains a fair bit of added info,maps, tables and guidance relating to running a Fallout game. Stuff they didn't put in the coore book because it would of made it 100 pages longer and more expensive to produce and then sell. Just wondering if this is on the cards to be added to fantasy grounds too?

For the record, those extra pages won't make the book harder to sell. It is already overpriced. :)

Unfortunately we don't provide ETAs on product conversions. Depends on the developer in completing the conversion.

Is the content in the works? I just found the booklet via very original PDF file and I am outraged how much critical info is put in this supplement instead of the core book... :(

To answer the other question, it does contain some cool and useful information for an Overseer. Much of the content works alongside stuff from the Core Rulebook and would be a welcome addition to anyone running a game. I'm actually starting to run a game locally and building this content was what helped me pull the trigger to decide to run a game.

From a pricing perspective, we were able to negotiate with Modiphius to get a lower price point for this product to more accurately reflect the amount of content that was included. Much of the physical product would not apply to the FG version, so that allowed us to price it at $14.99.

If you get it, please let us know what you think.

Yes. I finished the adventure and it looks like it will probably go out next week. The starter set only includes the adventure because the rest is duplicated content from the Core Rulebook.

The GM's Toolkit is only about 60 pages and 40 pages of it are corrected loot tables that should have been properly proof read before the Core book was released. There's only about 15 pages of worth while material on navigation and scavenging that is useful. In my opinion it was a cheap ploy to get more money out of the Core Rulebook.

I see there are some area maps, are there any battle maps or mission maps?

No tactical battle maps. There are only 2 maps and it is for the wasteland and fir the Boston area. It is a single large flip mat. It would be useful for campaign level movement but not for combat.

Great customer friendly move with negotiating lower price. Thanks for that, as it softens the insult from the Modiphius’ decision to cut from the core book.

Looks like a good value added product for a Fallout game.

Does the FGU version of the Fallout ruleset support tactical battle map play or is it intended for theater of the mind play primarily?

You can import images for the battle space and use the standard features provided by CoreRPG. There is no specific and dedicated zone support.
