    I don't think you can do this. Grappled is not an effect which is recognised by FG so you would have to set that up using an extension such as this http://https://www.fantasygrounds.co...ity-extensions. You could then use that in an IF statement to do stuff. Unfortunately you cannot use that to force a Save. This is one of these things which you would have to do manually I'm afraid.

    I noticed Grappled is not in the official list of effect but I was trying things like
    SAVE: 13 STR
    SAVE: 13 strength

    Couldn't get FG to do the auto roll though - I know FG is very fussy about format/grammar of an effect

    Effects "effect" the result of a roll - they only trigger their effect when a roll is made; they don't trigger rolls (other than DMGO (ongoing damage) and REGEN (regeneration)).

    SAVE is used to adjust the result of a roll of a saving throw with either a numerical or die modifier, not to trigger the actual saving throw.

    Is there a way to trigger a saving throw - as there is in 4e FG - would be similar to rolling a death save on end-of-turn?

    The death save is built into the LUA code of the 5E ruleset. There is not a way to setup/trigger saving throws through effects. The LUA code of the ruleset would have to be modified to do this.

    You could, of course, set Grapple up as an at will spell, and have the player cast Grapple.

    Quite an elegant solution Griogre.

    Glad you liked it. I've found you can use actions to kinda fill the gaps in special cases.
