    Utility: FG Print Tool (Print campaigns or character sheets)

    I've made some updates to the FG Universal Character Print Tool to allow printing of a 5E campaign and to clean up a few items on the 5E character sheet.

    Download Link:
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/727h3741n7...tTool.zip?dl=0

    Video Walkthrough:
    https://youtu.be/fJBLruikePc


    The included PrintCampaign5E.xsl sheet will print out the story, encounters, random encounters, images, NPCs, items and treasure parcels for a 5E campaign. This should be fairly easy to modify to support other rulesets.

    The 5E character sheet has been modified to use a javascript script called textFit. This makes text shrink or grow to fill a specified width and height. It can be used with character sheets and other areas where the length of text is unknown but it must fit in a specific area.

    The output from this can be used to publish to DMs Guild as long as you include the Fantasy Grounds mod file and mark it as a Fantasy Grounds product. You must have legal rights to distribute all the content included. This tool does not grant you rights to any content that you don't already own the copyright for.

    If you modify and create alternate versions of the XSL sheets to support other game systems or you make any significant improvements, please consider sharing those back here and granting us permission to incorporate those into the default installation.

    Installation Instructions:
    1. Download the zip file
    2. Unzip it to a folder on your computer
    3. Run FGPrintTool.exe


    UPDATES
    2019-02-19 Table of Contents style story items work in the HTML to provide hyperlinks within the document (not shown in video)
    2019-02-22 Added ability to skip content by placing NPCs, items and stories into a new group called Ignore

    I've stickied this here, but if you want to put it somewhere else, Doug, Just move it along.
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    Does the print version have to be included in the same product as the FG version or can two separate DMsG product be done? i.e. one FG module and one PDF module.

    I believe they need to be paired together -- otherwise we don't get any portion of the proceeds. Normal DMsGuild is split 50/30/20 (author/OBS/Wotc) and items with FG modules that are properly flagged are split as 50/30/10/10 (author/OBS/Wotc/Smiteworks).

    Ah, I had forgotten about that! Certainly want you to get any proceeds as appropriate.

    I have a question, (newb tinkering with the 5ed xsl to print WFRPv3 ruleset) so please forgive the ignorant phrasing of my question.
    <snip>
    I looked at the file a little longer, and I think I see how the PrintCampaign_5E.xsl answers my original question.

    I use FG online as well as at the tabletop. I usually stream my games; Savage Worlds - Sat at 6, Sunday at 2 and 6pm and 5e on Monday at 6:30 pm Pacific time. Look for 7thSim on Twitch!
