    Moving from Roll20 - can I pregen my player's characters?

    Hello guys,

    I'm new to FG, since the lockdown in London my group moved to online playing, we've been using Roll20, but I have been considering coming to FG. Bought the Ultimate License on the Steam Summer Sale, so I want to move at least the group I'm GM'ing for to FG from the next chapter of our AP.

    The problem I have is that some of my players are a bit change averse, so I wanted to make that move as painless as possible, preferably I'd like to transfer all their characters ahead of time so I can just assign them to the players and have them start playing from the get go, which is what I did for Roll20, where I had their character sheets I just entered everything, and the 1 character I had to create for a late comer I just left a few options open for him to choose. In Roll20 at least it's easy to assign the character to another user, in this case the players.

    Can I do something similar on FG? I'm reading through the documentation on the Wiki, but would like to get a jump on things even though there's no hurry right now.

    @Trenloe thank you for the quick reply, this is much easier than expected, I'll get started on character creation then.

    Just a tip from someone who has made plenty of mistakes while learning FG: watch the videos
    I know the program looks somewhat intuitive, like you could figure it out by just playing with it (and to a point you can), but the order of operations and many optimizations that can make a big difference can be anything but obvious and you can get months and months into using it and be missing really key/useful stuff.
    Or, if videos aren't interactive enough, jump on Fantasy Grounds College in Discord and do a small group class. They're a friendly bunch, if you can handle setting your time zone offset correctly, and you'll have a solid foundation on the basics to build off of.
