    Tell me some advantages of players having above demo or even ultimate?

    Greetings again,

    Its raining pretty good today here in Ventura County California. Yay for rain.

    I have ultimate and another player has Ultimate. What if any would be the advantage of having players play at a higher license?

    What I mean is I have two other players using demo for my game. Is there an advantage to a regular player who plays with an 'ultimate' gm to move up past the demo?

    They would be financially supporting SmiteWorks. Other than that, their is no added functionality or features or capabilities.

    Some players like to have their own copy of certain DLC (say, a Player's Handbook/Guide or some other 'Player Options' supplement) to work with their characters offline. This is especially useful for players who do Organized Play (Adventure League, Pathfinder Society, Starfinder Society and others) as the very nature of Organized Play means you'll have a different group and probably a different GM each session.

    Other groups like to rotate GMs, and in those cases, it's usually best if everyone has at least a Standard license to allow for that.

    Feature-wise, however, licenses are geared towards GMs since the GM is hosting the server the players connect to. If a GM happens to have the Ultimate license, then a full table of demo users can connect to their server. Population-wise, there are still far more Standard licence GMs out there than Ultimate. Also twice per year during FG Con (April and October) all Standard licences are automatically upgraded to Ultimate even if they're not hosting FG Con games.

    Talyn has a great answer.

    I'd add that it's nice to spread around the DMing duties so everyone having at least a Full means you can rotate and the DM is less likely to get burnt out.
    DMing since 1979. Ultimate License holder.

    Currently GMing:
    * Yggsburgh and Castle Zagyg - Castles and Crusades Greyhawk (Monday)
    * Temple of Elemental Evil - Castles and Crusades Greyhawk (Thursday - on hiatus)
    * 2e Greyhawk (Wednesday)

    Thanks for 7+ years of gaming via FG my friends (2e / 3.5e / Rolemaster Classic / Castles & Crusades / Pathfinder / Savage Worlds / 5e).

    There/Their/They're are all different words and do not mean the same thing.
