Fantasy Grounds with Mutants and Masterminds

Post by Glistam » Fri Jul 21, 2006 12:32 pm

My friends and I just recently acquired Fantasy Grounds to use for our gaming. I wonder if anyone here knows if a Mutants and Masterminds ruleset and character sheet has been created for Fantasy Grounds, and where I can find it? Any help is appreciated.

I just got Fantasy Grounds as well. I would love to have a M&M ruleset for it.

I'm not aware of anything for Fantasy Grounds, but there is a definition for KloogeWerks.

Ruleset and Tokens

Post by Talwynor » Wed Aug 23, 2006 4:47 pm

My understanding is that a ruleset/character sheet may be forthcoming...regardless, I'm getting ready to run a campaign and will use a standard d20 ruleset if my campaign starts before it is done. In the meantime, I've just finished creating tokens for the DC Universe...I've got over 50 done at the moment!

I'm the one working on the Character sheet, Ruleset for M&M in Fantasy Grounds.
I'm about 2 weeks from a usable product. (about 1 week, then I'm submitting it to M&M for approval).

That's great news Chi! I'm starting a game up the week of the 17th and was hoping we might be able to use your sheet/ruleset. I think it can be done without one, but just barely and not very well so your news is a godsend.

I'm hoping your effort starts the ball roling on seeing some superlink products targeting the FantasyGrounds community.

For those that are looking for a game, the game forum is hosted over at FourUglyMonsters.com and can be found at http://www.fouruglymonsters.com/communi ... y.php?f=37

We're looking for players. Game sessions will be run every other week and the setting is based on several discussions that have been had here, namely establishing an Ultimate DC Universe.

Do things like Fantasy Grounds, OpenRPG, and Kloogewerks provide any tangible benefit to tabletop gaming? Are the maps and sheets printable, for example, or do they make it viable for the GM to use a laptop as a realtime gaming aid?

Anyone know what ever happened to Dr. Chi? Really wish I knew how to or had the time to learn how to make a ruleset for MnM myself.

Did this ever get finished and released? If so, is it compatible with FG2?

Chatty,

I can't speak for those programs you mentioned, but my Battlegrounds virtual tabletop software is designed with face-to-face play in mind. The map is shown full-screen, and the user interface is hidden away until you need it, so it is ideal for use with a projector, large monitor, or HDTV (assuming you have one in the room where you game). It can even be used in a LAN, if everyone has their own laptop.

In addition to the battlemap, it offers a turn sequence panel to keep the game moving along quickly, since everyone can see who's turn it is and when their own turn is coming up. Another nice feature is the ability to show visual aids and play sound effects or music to liven up the game session.

You can check it out at http://www.battlegroundsgames.com. There's a free demo available for download.

OpenRPG has a good initiative tracker and is useful if you want to record what happened in the game. I haven't tried using it for character sheets and the like because I've got a perfectly useful tool for that called Excel.
