This is the 2nd ruleset by our own SuperTeddy. It uses a lot of the same core concepts from the 2d20 Fallout ruleset, but is customized for Dune and the unique mechanics of that system.

Any chance of an Achtung! Cthulhu or Mutant Chronicles ruleset?

It's possible.

We are weighing the amount of effort involved with each one, how much reuse we can get from one ruleset to the other, and how profitable they are (or aren't).

So i purchased and downloaded the ruleset. What ruleset should I open if i want to use this? When I open the Dune ruleset to start a campaign, I'm not getting the background like I see in the pictures and it doesnt look like I have the same thing. Am I doing something wrong?

Can you provide screen shots of what you are seeing?

Have you attempted to look over these reference materials in the wiki on how to get started?

Hello Tim,

Make sure you don't have any other themes selected when you load the ruleset if you want to use the default, built-in theme.

Yes, that was the problem thanks

If they let you create a Dishonored one as well, I would be willing to sacrifice a goat to whatever idol is best suited

This ruleset is really well done imo. I really like that opening a blank character sheet defaults to a character creation wizard, I think that’s really intuitive and neat. I hope I can find time to run some games with this soon

We had our first session last Thursday. It was so easy to get the information into FG, I cranked out the entirety of Act I in a few hours.

The session was spectacular fun; looking forward to the next one very much.

@superteddy57 Star Trek Adventures, please!

Achtung! Cthulhu 2d20 would be instant purchase from me. Just saying...

Do you have any plans to convert other books, such as the arrakis sourcebook? I’ve been thinking of buying it but would hold off if it was coming to fg anytime soon

@superteddy57

Is there a possibility that the ruleset could be altered to show the Difficulty and Complication range selection for the players, too, instead of just the GM? I find that as we're playing, I have to stop and make sure I call out each roll before a player makes it, since it resets between rolls, instead of just having them set the difficulty and complication range that I call out.

Last session, I had them do a D3 group roll - which we could have done in a few seconds, but I had to STOP, set difficulty, tell player to roll, STOP, set difficulty, tell player to roll, STOP set difficulty, tell player to roll, etc. It really slowed us down at the end.

If not, so be it...would just be a little more convenient if the players could set their own difficulty and complication range.

I could change the difficulty to function like the complication range. That way it stays put and needs to be changed when the difficulty needs to be changed. As for visibility, I would have to come up with a new control for this to be available for the player's. Certainly will add it to my list of things to consider when upgrading the ruleset.

Awesome! Just having the difficulty stay put would be a great improvement. Thanks for the consideration.

After the bad experience with the Conan ruleset. Before purchasing the Dune ruleset I wolud like to see it working. Is there any video showing that?

I'm not sure of videos, but some background - the Dune 2d20 ruleset is developed in house by SmiteWorks and not by an external part time development team (who did Conan 2d20), so it's completely different in many ways. Also, if you purchase on the Fantasy Grounds store, there's a 30 days no questions asked refund policy.

I’ve been using it since release, and had previously bought and subsequently returned Conan 2d20. Dune is done very well, is good to look at, has all the art assets, and is a breeze to use.

It's a little pricey for me at the moment, but I will surely buy the module down the line.
Any word on sourcebooks getting added, or made available as addon modules in due time as well?

Modiphius announced in their discord that Dune 2d20 is part of the summer sale and 20% off, thought on the Store this is not the case. Is Dune going to be part of the sales?

ddavison
July 2nd, 2022, 15:48
No. Dune is still too new to participate in any sales.

Yeah another vote for a hopeful future where Conan is handled by a team who actually feel like doing the bare minimum (harsh comment, but well... images in the reference guide is a bare minimum and not much of an ask even for a part time outfit)

Looking forward to picking up the ruleset here when I finally get around to reading/running dune2d20

Shame about Mutant Chronicles 3e being discontinued due to license issues for modiphius, it was a great system with solid products and doesn't deserve to be put to pasture :(.

Is there hope the Conan ruleset will get updated?

We are considering redoing Conan at a future date. Much of this will depend upon how well some of the other Modiphius licensed products end up selling and what else we have on the project list. We don't expect that we would make much revenue from redoing Conan since it would be a free update for all previous customers. The reason for doing it would be purely from a customer support perspective. I suspect we will end up doing for that reason alone. Star Trek Adventures is the next 2d20 system we will be releasing. It is in the later stages of development and testing. Once that is released, we will re-evaluate priorities.

Honestly, Conan is the only 2d20 ruleset I own. I was considering buying it until I read the forums. There is a ton of additional content besides the Core Book and the Player's Guide. I think if the ruleset is updated there would be potential to sell some of these expansions:

Conan Jeweled Thrones of the Earth
Conan the Thief
Conan the Barbarian
Conan the Mercenary
Conan The Book of Skelos
Conan the Pirate
Nameless Cults
Conan The Brigand
Ancient Ruins & Cursed Cities
Horrors of the Hyborian Age
Conan The Wanderer
Conan The Adventurer
Conan The Scout
Conan The King
Kull of Atlantis
The Exiles Sourcebook
The Shadow of The Sorcerer
The Age of Conan Sourcebook
+ 8 smaller Shining Kingdoms Modules

Yeah the content from Conan alone makes it great. If you guys don't want to do it I will offer to take it over and see if I can fix it up. I own the ruleset and I am just sitting on it. As an alternative maybe move it out from the vault if it's not going to be developed.

If you need a recommendation - bayne7400 is certainly capable of bringing this game up to a higher standard.

I currently own this ruleset for FGU
but don't use it. There are better presentations on other VTT's. If it were updated and fixed I wouldn't hesitate to move back to FGU as I use FGU for most of my other games. This may be an opportunity lost, but I agree with danman71 above, there's lots of extra content that could be added.

Atreides Ghola

I personally don’t care much about the Conan rule set. Personally, I’d rather see (pay for) content for Dune and Star Trek.
