    Attunement - how to?

    I am going in circles trying to find out how to attune characters to a magic item in 5E? Can someone please point me to the answer?

    Hi Peter, welcome to FG.

    The rules for attunement are in the Dungeon Master's Guide in Chapter 7 > Identifying a Magic Item.

    If you mean is there some automatic way that FG handles it or that FG can somehow differentiate between an attuned and unattuned item that doesn't happen.

    There is an extension here which does something like that https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...nement-Tracker
    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/

    Thanks Zacchaeus - so if I equip a character with an item that says attunement required and it doesnt apply the bonus (eg a girdle of giant strength) how do i overcome the attunement to get the effect to work?

    The attunement part is just theatre of the mind - it isn't a mechanical thing. Once it is attuned then in game terms it just works. Unless the item is a weapon or a piece of armour FG won't automatically add in effects. So simply equipping a Belt of Giant Strength won't do anything. You will need to create an effect and apply the effect to the PC on the combat tracker in order for them to gain the benefit. So, if their STR ability score is 16 and they equip a Belt of Hill Giant Strength to make their strength 21 then you'd need an effect STR: 5.

    More on effects in the Wiki here and in these videos.
