    Doomsday Dawn playtest campaign - available products and info

    There are now two products in the Fantasy Grounds store, and Steam, related to the ongoing Doomsday Dawn Pathfinder Playtest campaign:

    1. The campaign itself: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/store...OSMWPZO2100MFG is now complete, containing all 7 parts. Plus a player module containing the campaign backgrounds, and a supplementary maps module (see below).
    2. Four flip mats used within the campaign: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/store...WPZO2100FMMPFG (Note - you don't need these if you have the main campaign product - these provide higher resolution/better quality maps (75 pixels per square) than those used in the campaign - see details below).


    Both of these products are conversions of the Pathfinder Playtest PDFs available for free as part of the playtest here: http://paizo.com/pathfinderplaytest They have been converted for ease of use within Fantasy Grounds, including both reference manuals and story entries with all of the details from the product, and FG ready maps, images, NPCs, encounters, items and treasure parcels.

    Early access

    The Doomsday Dawn campaign product has been provided as "early access" because at initial release it contained the introduction and parts needed to play the campaign in line with the playtest schedule. Additional parts have been added on a regular basis, with each new part available for when the Paizo playtest schedule for that part started.

    Note: part 7 is currently active in the Paizo playtest schedule. The officially scheduled play period for parts 1 - 6 are past, but the feedback surveys are still open, and Paizo are continuing to take feedback from the previous scenarios - there is nothing stopping you playing these first few parts and providing feedback to Paizo. It will get you into the story line of the important Doomsday Dawn campaign and introduce you to the Pathfinder Playtest - with specific playtest goals for each part.

    Playtest updates: With the October 23rd update, which includes part 6, the Paizo v1.5 update is also included.

    Maps

    The Doomsday Dawn campaign product contains all the maps from the base product, in both GM and Player format. GM maps contain labels and secret areas, whereas player maps are blank with secret doors etc. removed, the player maps are 50 pixels per 5 foot square with a FG grid already applied. The exception to this is the maps in part 6 - originally labelled as 1 square = 5 feet, this has been been to 1 square = 10 feet in the errata. The maps were provided in 80 pixels per grid square and are larger than the recommended FG image size - so the maps have been split into 2 parts (along the lines of how the adventure will progress) and provided with a FG grid of 1 square = 5 feet = 40 pixels. This results in the best quality from the original map provided by Paizo, and also being close to (a little over) the recommended FG image sizes.

    Note: Many of the maps in this product have now been updated, based off newly available Paizo graphic files. The maps have been set at 50 pixels per grid square to fit within Fantasy Grounds standards and recommendations. If you feel the map quality is not great for some of these maps, consider looking at the Flip-Mat product which contains four key maps at 75 pixels per square (reduced from the original digital files, not the PDF, so no loss of focus or further digital image processing required). https://www.fantasygrounds.com/store...WPZO2100FMMPFG

    Supplemental maps: Paizo, as part of the playtest, are experimenting without providing maps for some encounters in part 2. Whereas this is acceptable for face-to-face games where the GM can draw on a blank map, it doesn't work too well for VTT gaming. Therefore, as part of the Doomsday Dawn product, a "supplemental maps" module is provided with maps created specifically for these four encounters - allowing you to play quickly and easily.



    The supplemental maps module also includes a basic water map for use in Part 4 and two unmapped encounter areas for part 7.

    Please ask questions or provide feedback in the thread below.

    Footnote - the sale of these products help to support the ongoing development of the Fantasy Grounds playtest ruleset - a challenging undertaking that will last for a year, with frequent updates to data and functionality, and dynamic changes as the playtest rules evolve.

    Tokens

    The Doomsday Dawn module contains custom tokens for NPCs that have artwork in the Doomsday Dawn product. It also contains A-Z tokens in a Pathfinder Playtest red color.

    Would the licensing allow the release of a free "Player Module" with just the Backgrounds for players to create their own character offline using Manage Characters?

    i don't think so... However, I created something similar for people who play on my table and I can open my table sometime for you to check it out. I haven't updated it yet for all the recent errata, but will try to when I have time. Next time I have my table open for character creation I will let you know!

    I don't see why it wouldn't allow for that. Is that not a reasonably standard way of doing official modules.

    To the best of my knowledge, all the previous official Paizo modules (mostly adventure paths) contain a "player module" as part of the product, not as a free add on.

    Ah yes, sorry I missed the "free". Oops.

    Since there is a commercially available module, I'd expect it to be part of that if it was part of anything.

    Sorry... I completely misunderstood your original post... My bad.

    With the standard Fantasy Grounds Tuesday update, part 4 is now included in the Doomsday Dawn. This includes all Paizo v1.3 updates (DC changes etc.) and is in time for the Paizo schedule for part 4 playtesting.
