5E Character Create Playlist

    What should I buy to DM?

    Just wondering what I should buy to run a session in FG? I currently play with a group on roll20, and would like to do some sessions with them on FG. Right now I think I want to run Curse of Strahd so obviously I would have to purchase that, and the core class pack for my PCs to make their characters. Do I also need to get the Dungeon Master's guide, or any of the monster manuals in order for the encounter in Strahd to work?

    Every adventure module can be used completely stand-alone. The PHB, DMG, MM is not needed to run any published adventure.

    As you noted, you probably want the class packs (or the complete packs, which is the PHB) to help automate character creation, but it is not required as you can use classes and races from the SRD and the Basic Rules and manually enter anything else if a player wants. I do think you'll be happy with the PHB (complete class pack), but that's your call.

    Do make sure you understand the differences between the standard and ultimate licenses, and that you can buy subscription or a one-time license to fit your needs.

    Let us know any other questions.

    Thanks for the response, and I do know that I need the Ult license to have other's connect to my game. I think for now I will go with the ult sub, the core class pack, and Strahd itself. Thanks again!

    More information of the merits of the various options here.
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea here https://www.fantasygrounds.com/featu...rerequests.php

    I never claimed to be sane. Besides, it's more fun this way.
