    Universal Module Extension

    This small extension should work in most CoreRPG layered rulesets and will allow you to mix rulesets and modules up.
    You will get varying degrees of success.
    Things that will likely work are:
    Reference Manual
    Story
    Images
    NPC - Names and description only
    Items - Names and description only
    Encounters - partial

    You will get plenty of things that dont work, plenty of things that partially work. This cant be helped as different game rulesets have different data structures.
    If Ive missed (or misspelled) any rulesets let me know.
    If you get errors on a type of data... dont complain to me or to SmiteWorks etc...

    Current Ruleset tags that are included:

    d20
    2E
    3.5E
    4E
    5E
    PFRPG
    PFRPG2
    CallOfCthulhu7e
    CallOfCthulhu7E
    CallOfCthulhu
    Savage Worlds

    WOIN

    Classic Traveller
    Castles and Crusades

    Very nice.
    DMing since 1979. Ultimate License holder.

    Currently GMing:
    * Yggsburgh and Castle Zagyg - Castles and Crusades Greyhawk (Mon/Fri - on hiatus)
    * Temple of Elemental Evil - Castles and Crusades Greyhawk (Thursday - on hiatus)

    Thanks for 7+ years of gaming via FG my friends (2e / 3.5e / Rolemaster Classic / Castles & Crusades / Pathfinder / Savage Worlds / 5e).

    There/Their/They're are all different words and do not mean the same thing.

    Great work

    Thank you SO much. Im setting up Curse of the Crimson Throne in 5th edition, and the patch fix I did was to add PFRPG to the layering of 5e ruleset. A lame fix, because everytime FG update 5e ruleset I would be forced to apply the change.
    Again, thanks, it will avoid lots of headaches.

    Not sure what you mean by that, but if it is what it sounds like, you are messing with the fabric of the universe, and you will very likely regret it. Those rulesets are not (completely) compatible, and the issues will be complex and difficult to find and fix.
    But I wish you luck.
    If you ever come to these boards with issues from this, you need to tell folks what you have done or they will waste a lot of time troubleshooting your problem. And, I really don't think you should expect someone to help you when you are doing something this risky and beyond the design of the software.

    Im guessing he just meant adding:

    <importinfo>
    <acceptfrom ruleset="PFRPG" />
    </importinfo>

    to the base.xml

    Well that is fairly harmless and bypasses the need for your extension

    Nope, it doesn't bypass the need for the extension.

    If you change anything in a standard ruleset it will be overwritten by the next update - and FG will even tell you that there is an update available. So this extension is indeed needed!

    Yes, I prefer the extension for the reason Trenloe pointed. As soon as theres a new version of the ruleset, the updater will overlap the changes.
    But, when I did the change Damned shown to the base.xml, I didnt knew there was an extension
