  1. A Neophyte Tackles the FG Extension - Change Effect Visibility with One Line (Part 1)

    Due to posting limits, I have had to split this session into three posts.
    This is part 1 of 3.

    It takes only a single line of code to change an effect’s default visibility behavior in the Combat Tracker. To discover and implement it requires a little work as outlined below.

    Using Notepad++ I searched for the string displayed on the effect visibility button, VSBL, in the 5E ruleset subfolder, of the Fantasy Grounds data folder. No luck, the search failed to ...
  2. My original adventure building process including making the Fantasy Grounds MOD.

    by , June 7th, 2016 at 23:10 (Rob2e's "Fantasy Grounds - The Experience!")
    Well, I did it. I built a 5E module in Fantasy Grounds using a PDF that I created for an original adventure. It was an experimental process to see if I could become my own quasi developer. Since this was an experiment, I didn't record (video) the process. If everything turns out okay, I will henceforth record and share the entire process from beginning to end on my future projects (and perhaps retrospectively on this one).

    My intent was to create additional material for the Dungeon Masters Guild. ...

  3. A Neophyte Tackles the FG Extension - Effect Visibility (Revisited, Part 2)

    Now to add some functionality to the Effect Visibility Extension. I’ll start by modifying the default behavior of who sees an effect when it is initially applied. For the 5E ruleset, when an effect is applied, everyone sees it. I want to change it to GM only. The GM then has the option of changing who sees the effect and when.

    The astute reader will immediately recognize that in an earlier blog I had mentioned I was abandoning this idea because FG v3.2.0 will make it moot. ...
  4. DC 12 Craft Check - Part 1

    Reading Doug's post on dice inspired me to write about a nice Christmas gift I gave each of my players a few years back.

    At the time we were a face-to-face group, and as so often happens in such a setting our gaming table was often overflowing with paper, pencils, rule books, minatures, dice, snacks, drinks... you name it - and I have an old "Board Room" Conference Table as my gaming table, and it was still overflowing! Suffice it to say, dice would go everywhere when we ...

  5. Something a bit different - A discussion about Real Dice

    If you are like any of the gamers that I know, you have buckets and buckets of dice. I received an email from the folks at Easy Roller Dice asking if I would mind reviewing their dice and of course, I said "no problem. I love dice."

    They have a fairly good selection of dice colors and materials, but the ones that jumped out to me were the glow in the dark dice set. That was a set that I didn't have yet. In addition, they sent me a dice cup to use when rolling them. I have ...
