This guide contains an overview of the Fantasy Grounds ruleset creation system. The document is divided
into sections, of which you will find a list in the menu on the left.
A full license is required to customize rulesets.
To create rulesets, you only need a text editor for editing the files in the ruleset folder. However,
it might be useful to take advantage of a dedicated XML editor, in order to minimize errors in
XML syntax, or a syntax hilighting Lua script editor, for a better script file modification experience.
Throughout the development and testing of a ruleset, you may find the following slash commands useful.
- "/reload ruleset": This command reloads the ruleset after modifications can be made. This feature is
officially still in testing, but is a convenience when working on rulesets with no clients connected.
- "/console": This command opens the console window, which you can use for displaying debug information
throught the use of the print script function.
- "/openwindow [windowclass] [datasource (optional)]": Allows the opening of windows without a user
The ruleset reference documentation
The ruleset reference documentation contains information about all the XML
and script entities available for use in defining rulesets.
