    D&D B/X or Old School Essentials (OSE)

    Guys, what's the best way of playing D&D B/X on Fantasy Grounds? Any suggestions?

    So... there is D&D2E that is included in your downloads and you can buy PHB/MM and much more in store
    there is Castles&Crusades in store (crazy cheap price)
    there is also Dungeon Crawl Classics / DCC in store

    there is a MoreCore Damned Basic Dungeon out there somewhere which has a lot of functionality but I have to cycle back to one day in the near future and finish off
    this is closer to B/X but with some class variants

    there will also be an announcement on Low Fantasy Gaming in the very near future

    I'm cracking my knuckles and seeing if I can make a ruleset for B/X / OSE, but everyone wasn't lying when they said it takes hundreds of hours. This looks like quite the undertaking.

    Welcome Cassavyr

    Dont crack them too often - you will need them for typing...
    Also dont aim too high to start with.
    Write down the things that are most essential - typically they are:
    1. character sheet that tracks all the core stuff
    2. npcs that track all the core stuff
    3. combat tracker that allows you to roll attacks against defense and allows you to apply damage


    then you get to the cool stuff that makes things awesome but are not needed
    1. shareable library of monsters, equipment, spells
    2. auto class leveling
    3. effects

    I think I'll follow that advice. Thank you. Thinking of it as just a character sheet first feels pretty manageable all of a sudden.

    I quite like Low Fantasy D20, I played a session at a Con recently and the GM got a very good Sword and Sorcery Vibe going wit it

    Just wondering if this "Low Fantasy" game inside FGU will be similar to how 5E works in terms of character building and leveling via drag and drop?

    Thanks
