    Tutorial Video Series

    So, following some recent posts about the 'lack' of basic tutorials I've started a series of videos covering the use of Fantasy Grounds. How many and how much detail they go into will depend on available time. The list of videos to date is below

    Video One: Getting Started
    Video Two: User Interface Part 1
    Video Three: User Interface Part 2
    Video Four: User Interface Part 3
    Video Five: Chatbox
    Video Six: Giving players control of NPCs
    Video Seven: Creating Random Encounters
    Video Eight: How to use point buy in Manage Characters
    Video Nine: Changing tokens and names in encounters and using the $PC function in random encounters
    Rollable Tables: A short video on how to create and use rollable tables
    Exporting to a module: This video looks at how to export your creations to a module.
    Creating and using encounters: As the name suggests this video looks at encounter creation.
    A video showing you how to use Valeros's Map Align Utility.

    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 to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    Great work Zacchaeus short focused videos are the best option I believe.

    So Zacchaeus, in your Getting Started video, you reference the video link under Getting Started, and I see now that it has a decent landing page with a pretty good break down of various categories. You or someone that has access to the Wiki, should update it with a link to your channel as well. You have an array of informative tutorials that appear to be more in line with what initial users to Fantasy Grounds are looking for. I would say, add the Digital DM guy as well, but I believe he is working for FG now? And has deprecated his Digital DM channel?

    Anyway, a reference to your resources is a definite must. Cheers!

    I've added a new video to the list in the first post, showing how to change tokens and names in encounters and also using the $PC function in random encounters.

    It has been sticked for a very long time. See the guides videos and other information sticky at the top of the 5e forum.
