    You can do that. If you have links between the two you'd need to create the main module first, then re-do the links in the second module making campaign so that they point to the main module, and vice versa. It can get a little complex if you're not 100% aware of where the links go. So you may want to restrict the links between the two modules and just keep links to the current module only - which is pretty much best practice - i.e. only link within the same module.

    teleporting without error
    OK, that gives me the info I need to know. If I'd been thinking ahead I would have done the last half in a new campaign where I'd already exported the first half, and just activated that module into the "back-half" campaign to use for links. Unfortunately, I didn't do that, and redoing the links is redoing many, many links (and introducing new chances of glitching the redo). Maybe in a while when I've recharged my batteries I can reconstruct the back half in that manner. I appreciate the explanation!

This makes adding, editing, maintaining and exporting an updated module quicker and keeps all data for one module in that one campaign.

    Sure, you have to switch between campaigns to create the player and GM modules, but this is a small price to pay for the gains in efficiency and reduction in errors of using a campaign per module.
    Hi, i understand, to an extent, splitting source material in to DM/player, but could you explain or give an example of why you would want to do that regarding an adventure?

    For an adventure there would be no need for a split unless you are including player facing material such as new backgrounds, classes, races, spells etc. When we are saying split into modules we are talking mainly about reference material, NPCs, and other DM only related stuff and the aforementioned list of player related material.
    If you need to contact customer support or 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 here http://fgapp.idea.informer.com/
