    Supported Rulesets

    • Dungeons and Dragons 5E - Mostly done
    • Pathfinder 2E - WIP
    • Other Rulesets might work to some degree, but expect oddities to occur.

    Special Contributors

    Big shout-out to MeAndUnique and Saagael for their invaluable help with .xml and .lua code.
    Without them this theme wouldn't evolve any further, so make sure to shower them with praise! <3.


    Hello fellow Adventurers,
    I proudly present to you my take on a dark, reduced and calm Fantasy Grounds Unity user-interface for Dungeons and Dragons 5E.
    I tried my best to make it look more modern (within the limitations of FGU) and support most available extensions.
    It is useful if you tend to play in dimmed light conditions and don't want to melt your eyes with the rather bright official themes.
    It was developed at 120 cd/m screen brightness in AdobeRGB color space.
    Most monitors ship with brighter factory settings and can't use the full Adobe Color spectrum, so what you look at probably doesn't look like I had intended it to.


    • Total visual support for other extensions. I adjust all graphics and fonts they come with to play nicely with my theme!
    • Reduced, dark color palette.
    • Eye-friendly contrasts for good readability even with small fonts (at least 7:1).
    • Redone UI elements. No soft edges, no rounded corners, no 3D Effects, no textures - simple, flat and clear.
    • Fonts replaced with Roboto Sans.
    • Font sizes and colors adjusted.
    • Color Coded Action Buttons for ease of use.
    • Script enhanced radial menu that features more unique icons than normally possible. Big thank you to Saagael.
    • Removed link Icons in Hotkey Bar - brought to you by MeAndUnique!
      -> You have to re-link already placed hotkey links to make the icon disappear.

    Visually Supported Extensions

    I try my best to make all available extensions visually compatible (there should be no code related problems). Not all extensions need dedicated support though, only those that add custom graphics assets and font colors.
    If an extension you use is not on this list, chances are it doesn't need extra treatment and works out of the box. If not, shoot me a message and I will take a look.

    Compatibility Information

    Supported extensions are not necessarily compatible with each other. You have to make sure of this yourself.

    • If you are using Better Menus by Celestian, make it load after my Theme by adjusting the loadorder to 1501 or higher.
    • Font extensions have to use a loadorder of 1501 or higher to overwrite my theme. If they include font color code, they will overwrite mine though.

      In general it is advised to have my theme load last at all times, but for special cases like this.

    Planned Features and known Problems

    Please see the GitHub project file for information on what's going on with the theme.

    Hall of Fame

    • When darkness crawls and shadows loom, one misstep here could spell our doom; Smart the one with torch and lamp, will be remembered as a champ; As he who gave the gift of light, is henceforth worthy the title knight.
    • The cartographers pride is a finished map. The travelers joy is a detailed map. The adventurers staple is a bundle of maps - They all came signed by the one whiteTiki.
    • Whispers in the kings hall, the traveling bards, puffers on the street, voices at the regulars' table, the birds in the trees; They all sing praise to the one Aridhro, who made sure the army's soldiers won't use adrenaline during battle, but solely move on caffeine alone.
    • The warriors raise a freshly brewed toast to cmtpcm, who contributed to the cause with a large gift of coffee!
    • The Valkyries cheer, for their master has spread his wealth and name to support the cause. MadNomad!
    • Hushed voices whisper a glorious name. A supporter that aided the cause! Did you hear it too?
    • The heavens sing of a name, angelic and pure, an euphony to ears and heart. Its wielder brought gifts from the storytellers wares!
    • The scribes bow their heads in awe to, MeAndUnique, Saagael, mattekure, Superteddy57, Styrmir, damned and Trenloe for their help and ingenuity with complex scripture.
    • Wisdom poured by CMYKMatter and Drowbe helps the eye stay focused.

    Reporting Issues

    Either describe where and what, and/or simply send a screenshot that illustrates the problem.


    • FGC or FGU?
      - FGC: There is no support by me, sorry, the theme is purely FGU based.
      - FGU: Did you make sure my Theme loads after other extensions? It uses a loadorder value of 1500. In rare cases other extensions need to load after my theme (like Better Menus).

    • Are you on the latest version of FG and the Theme?

    • Are you sure you don't have duplicates in the extension folder or other themes active at the same time?

    • Are you using the 5E ruleset?
      - Yes: Read below
      - No: Right now I do not work on other rulesets but for basic Pathfinder 2E support, but please report here anyway. I just might fix it, if it's not difficult to do so.

    • Have an Error-Log?
      use /console in chat to bring up the console again in case you closed it already.
    • Got me a screenshot?

    • Are you using other extensions?
      - Yes: Does the error still occur when you disable all other extensions?
      - Yes: What is/are the conflicting extension/s?
      - No: Read below

    • When does the error occur and is it tied to a specific interface component?

    • Is the error reliably reproducible?

    Well it’s certainly dark
    If you need to contact customer support or 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 here

    Yes it is! I added some information on screen brightness, as this theme is very sensitive in this regard.

    Funny how a skin change can make something look 'old' or 'modern'. This looks modern.
    Fantasy Grounds Unity Lives! Good job, Smiteworks!

    Thank you very much. I'm kinda shooting for a more modern look.
    Later down the line I may introduce a version that is a little bite more dynamic, talking simple color gradients and the like. No promises though .
