Building out a character building system in Pathfinder which spans 10+ years of content (not even counting third party material) is a huge project we don't currently have the resources for. Also, Pathfinder has some great support from PCGen and Hero Lab for generating and getting PCs into Fantasy Grounds already.

    Thanks for clarifying, MW. As I said, I wasn't upset, and I also acknowledged I might not have understood. I have (essentially) no complaints on FG. I love this company and program, and your personal contributions are nothing short of monumental.

    I take it for granted that, with this license, as time goes forward, ya'll will add more and more capability to the PF ruleset. I think the character dragging is a little overboard. Hero Lab does a fairly thorough job of that, and FG has so much better things to spend their time on that other tools just simply cannot effectively do.

    Sorry for my misunderstanding.

    This is great news! I am about 60% done with my own conversion of the Curse of the Crimson Throne Hardcover, so I will probably finish that on my own, but I've wanted something like this for so long, I KNOW I'll be picking up some of the other products.

    This is fantastic news. I mostly run Pathfinder APs and the time requirements to get the material into FG means it's difficult for me to do any sort of customization. Maybe I'm just slow. 8)

    I'm hopeful that the purchasable content includes usable effects for spells, special abilities, feats, etc. The task of fully entering a high level spell casting dragon with multiple feats and abilities is a daunting one. The time saving on that one aspect alone would be well worth the cost of the purchase.

    This is fantastic news. The Paizo APs are some of the higher quality canned adventures out there. Even though I don't run Pathfinder for my group anymore, I'd still snatch up the APs to use during our 5E games so I don't have to worry about creating all the tokens, maps, etc. I'm still a loyal Paizo subscriber for APs and some other stuff that I often adapt for 5E. This just makes it so much easier for me!

    Well done, Doug and the SmiteWorks team!

    Just be cautious. The content will most likely be locked down to the PFRPG ruleset and wouldn't be something you could port over to 5E.

    I am sure I will purchase it, but I have to say I am getting a little frustrated that their isn't some kind of discount system. I have paid for Rise of the Runelords:
    1. Original 3.5 rules from Paizo (PDF included by subscription)
    2. Pathfinder conversion
    3. Hero Lab data sets
    4. Audio CDs of RotRL
    5. (soon I hope) RealmWorks
    6. (soon I hope) Fantasy Grounds

    Just grousing. If there were to be a discount, it should be Paizo doing it in recognition that a user owns the material they purchased through Paizo.

    Although there are some things you can do to allow modules to be opened in another ruleset: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...l=1#post296302 Handy for story, maps, tokens, etc., but ruleset specific data probably won't be accessible/usable.

    Great news.
    A soft answer turneth away wrath. Once wrath is looking the other way, stab it in the back.

    Congrats Smiteworks! While I have only played one game of PF I am excited to see Fantasy Grounds grow... and that theme! Love the theme!

    This won't be something I personally make direct use out of, but it's nice to see Fantasy Grounds leading the way again, and I'm happy for the people who will have their gaming enhanced by this agreement.
