More Pathfinder Content on Fantasy Grounds

Saturday, March 24, 2018

Bestiary 3 is now available for Fantasy Grounds! It contains all 300+ monsters from Bestiary 3, with tokens, stats, images and full descriptions available for reference and use within the Fantasy Grounds virtual tabletop. Special abilities and spells have been embedded within each monster to keep everything at your fingertips and to keep the focus on the combat and roleplaying that your players love. Since several of the races include details for playable races, we've included a separate Bestiary 3 Player Version that you can share with your players to allow them to build monstrous characters like the canny ratfolk, genie-blooded sulis and more.

We've also released the fifth and sixth volumes of the Mummy's Mask Adventure Path. This completes one of the 6 separate Adventure Path volumes from Paizo that are converted and ready to play on Fantasy Grounds. Check the Fantasy Grounds website for a full list of available Paizo products for both Pathfinder and Starfinder.

Be sure to sync your Paizo and Fantasy Grounds accounts to get the PDF added to your Paizo account as part of the purchase or to get the entire cost of the PDF as a discount on your purchase at fantasygrounds.com!

That looks pretty.

Commensurate support for Roll20 please.

I'd love for Mummy's Mask to make it to roll20, investing $150 for fantasy grounds is just too much in my opinion.

The Standard edition of Fantasy Grounds (the one I use) is only $39. If you want the Ultimate edition, but can't pay $149 up front, you can subscribe for $10 a month (also a good way of trying it out to see if you like it). Whatever you choose, it's a great piece of software with outstanding support and the best user community I've come across.

That's begun, now it's up to the Roll20 people.

At $27.99 per installment on Roll20, you'd be paying $27.99x6=$167.94. If you already own the Mummy's Mask pdfs and sync your account, on Fantasy Grounds, you will be paying $7x6=$42. Now, if you're only going to run 1 AP, Roll20 is slightly cheaper than Fantasy Grounds' Ultimate license plus the Ap (@42+149=$191 vs $168), on the other hand, if you can run an AP in less than 12 months, you can do it for less on FG using the subscription module Callum mentioned above, or, if your players have a Standard license, you can pick up the AP and a permanent Standard license for a total of $81 (this can also later be upgraded to an Ultimate license at a discounted rate.) Also, if you run more than one AP that $42 per Adventure Path comes out MUCH cheaper than $168 per.

If you don't already own the pdfs of the AP you're going to run, then Roll20 is cheaper. If you do, FG is cheaper. Again, maybe Roll20 will come out with a discount plan of their own, but it is currently not available.

Removed a post. Stating a preference among our licensed partners is fine, but insults are not.


I've found Roll20 to be lighter and easier to run with little setup. However Fantasy Grounds is WAY better if you're willing to put a bit of build into it, and Paizo has been making that WAY easier with these modules.

For me, this is all way too expensive, unless there is a discount involved for those who have already purchased the physical and/or PDF copies from Paizo. I understand it's a distinct product, but there is a lot of overlap, and when I consider the cost of membership for Fantasy Grounds, plus the cost of a physical or PDF copy of the product from Paizo, plus the Fantasy Grounds copy of the product, it quickly becomes apparent to me that these sorts of things are not targeted at the middle-class.

Desna's Avatar, Fantasy Grounds does offer a discount equal to the price of the PDF, if you already own it. I don't believe a similar discount has been offered by Roll20.

From my understanding, there is. You sync your Paizo account to your Fantasy Grounds account (or some such), and it "unlocks" the materials you've already purchased in the past. So, if you've built up a library of PDFs or books that you've paid for via the Paizo store, they should all transfer to your Fantasy Grounds account in PDF form.

...I should go do that and see just how ridiculous it gets.

Not exactly.

Any items you have purchased in pdf format here on Paizo that they produce for Fantasy Grounds gives you a discount of the pdf price off of fantasy grounds purchases (which are usually roughly equal to the cover price of the books.) If you do not have the pdf, the price for the fantasy grounds purchase also covers getting a copy of the pdf here on Paizo.

For instance, I have paid $7.00 for each of the adventure path instalments I've purchased on FG because I already owned the pdfs as a subscriber, except for the Strange Aeons series, which happened during a period I had cancelled my subscription. For those, I paid the full 24.99 and then was able to add the pdfs to my downloads here for free/included in that price.

Rulebooks tend to be more expensive in part due to Paizo making the pdfs available for 9.99; your discount is only the amount of the pdf, so a 49.99 rulebook will cost you $40 after the discount if you own the pdf.

Hope that clarifies.

EDIT: just make sure you've synced your accounts on FG store before making the purchase and make sure the discount is showing in your basket before paying.

Appreciate that. How do you link accounts?

Edit: Oh wait, there's the option.

Here

You'll need a partner authorization code from Paizo. You can get this via a link under your (Paizo) account settings. Once you've entered this code on FG, they'll give you 2 buttons- one for linking your Paizo purchases to FG for the discount and one for linking your FG purchases to Paizo to get the pdfs if you purchase something you don't have already.

For those who are interested, Fantasy Grounds is having its summer sale and its basic license is only 29.25 and ultimate only 111.75 during this sale. Lots of their content is also on sale.

As a noob GM I'm gone use Fantasy Grounds for live tabletop meetings. I've allready installed the Core rulebook, Bestiary and the advanced playerguide. Right now I'm learning how FG works.
I've two questions:
Do I need to buy and install Bestiary 3?
Is there a possibility of releasing the beginner box for Fantasy Grounds? This adventure would be e great start for me as a GM.

There are community projects that have converted most of the Bestiaries that can be downloaded free. What's missing are images and tokens for the monsters, player content (PC races), and there may be a mistake or two in the conversion, but the community bestiaries should work for most purposes.

This Thread has links to download these modules.

There is unlikely to be a specific ruleset for the beginner box, given that all the conversions are done by Smiteworks staff or community volunteers/freelancers and they are concentrating on converting adventure paths and core rulebooks.

Beginner Box is mostly just Pathfinder Core with many of the rules removed or simplified, so you could use the Core Rules to emulate it fairly well by not using the rules missing from it. Just make sure your players are aware/referencing the BB rules.

Take advantage of the tutorials that are out there for Fantasy Grounds, as this will help tremendously. Also, consider signing up for a session or two of Fantasy Grounds College! Those guys are eager to help new DMs, very friendly indeed.

Question about Adventure Paths: If I buy an Adventure Path but not the Bestiaries, will I get tokens for the monsters in the AP?

Liberty's Edge

In general, yes. Some specific named NPCs who don't have art in the AP will have a letter for their name instead of an image token, but monsters generally have images from the module or bestiary, whether you have the bestiary or not.

Thanks! That's a big help in figuring out what to buy!
