    It is called the Complete Core Class Pack in the store.

    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

    Oh ok, thank you. I wondrer why they dont use the same title as the physical version. Its kind of confusing when you know what you are looking for and its called something else. Oh well, little quirks that you have to figure out

    This was the way Wizards of the Coast wanted it, becasue it is possible to buy individual packs for each class and an additional pack which allows for customization. So, logically, the PHB is a combination of all of those packs and customization options; hence the Compete Core Class Pack.

    Oh, so the individual class packs and character customization aren't expansions of what is in the PHB / Core class packs? They're just class specific to break down the cost for beginning users? good to know that, thank you. You saved me from buying those extra.

    That brings up another question then. Are the monster packs, like the D&D Monster Pack-Dragons expansions on what is in the core monster manual or are they the same materials covered in the core monsters?

    I agree, especially since they didnt do them all that way. For example, The Dungeon Masters Guide is still the same title whether it is hard copy or digital...makes no sense and is confusing for those of us that are new to using digital content versus hard copy.

    Yes, the Monster Manual has all the monsters whereas the packs are just a subset of the monsters.

    The DMG was sold as is, and not available in different parts like the Class packs and Monster Packs; hence the reason why it's got the same name.

    This decision was one that was outside of our control.

    To specifically answer the class pack and monster pack question, they are subsets of the complete core class pack (i.e. PHB) and complete monster pack (i.e. MM).
