Greetings fellow gamers. It’s that time of the week once more. It’s time for me to post another article to the FG College Times.
This week, I want to talk about how Fantasy Grounds has changed the way that you play RPGs and D&D.
If you’ve read my articles for any amount of time, you’ll know that I tend to be a bit wordy, so you’d think I would have a lot to say about how Fantasy Grounds has changed things for me. But…. You would be wrong. In my case, Fantasy Grounds is the ONLY way that I have played RPGs and D&D, so I have nothing to compare it to. I mean, if you think about it, in my opinion, I got the best, and there is no reason to change.
But, I am sure there are many players who started out playing back in the day with pen & paper, and I would like to know how using Fantasy Grounds to either run your games or play in games has changed things for you.
From my experience, I would have to say that the things I enjoy most are that Fantasy Grounds is not limited to just the latest version of D&D (5e at the time of publishing this article). You can play many different rulesets, such as Pathfinder, Starfinder, Call of Cthuhlu, Savage Worlds, 13th Age, Castles and Crusades, and many more.
I also appreciate that the math is taken care of for me. I don’t have to add my modifiers to my attack rolls, or saving throws. It does it for me. Hey, magic. No, not really, but I digress.
Lastly, and it’s just a little thing, but I like being able to change my dice to any color I want. If I were playing in person, I’d have to have a cache of dice to do that same thing. In Fantasy Grounds, I merely pull out the palate and start mixing my colors to make the hue that I am feeling the most that day.
So, enough about my personal ideas about the program. What do you think? Fill out the form below and let me know how Fantasy Grounds changed the way you play RPGs and D&D.
