DM’ing your first game can be a bit intimidating, and even more so if you are not as familiar with the interface and tools you are using.  This class session will cover how to use the many features of Fantasy Grounds to prepare and run your own games. It is intended for those who have at least a basic familiarity with Fantasy Grounds.

Topics include:

  • Creating the campaign and getting players connected
  • Learning the FG Layout
  • Introduction to the Library and Tokens
  • Setting Campaign Options
  • Basic PC Management (as DM)
  • Managing the Party Sheet
  • Understanding and using the Combat Tracker

FG College (Fantasy Grounds College) is a Discord community of amazing guys & gals who will attempt to help you both LEARN and PLAY Fantasy Grounds (and whatever game you want to play in Fantasy Grounds!). Our Discord server is made up of Teachers volunteering their time and DM prowess to help Students (YOU) learn.
We’ve undergone a huge growth spurt and have added features including regular sessions with experienced GMs, adding teachers from multiple time zones (US, UK, JP), support for many different genres and rulesets,  and a community that supports DMs, content creators, industry people and artists! This is a community based server, and ‘FG College’ is NOT affiliated with the official Fantasy Grounds Company or Smiteworks, LLC.

· Pre-planned and on-the-fly sessions ready to go for LEARNING and PLAYING!
· GMs who love teaching newbies or other DMs
