This is a workshop for aspiring Savage Worlds GMs who have already watched tutorial videos on the basics of Fantasy Grounds and wish to exploit the various tools that the Savage Worlds ruleset on Fantasy Grounds offers.


We will look at:

-The Preferences menu: set up the preferences to better suit your style of play

-The Chase Tracker: how does it work?

-The Combat Tracker: how to include allies and groups of extras

-Tools: deck of action cards, GM bennies and wild card indicator

-The Adventure Deck: how to deal cards, play cards and trade them

-The SW Enhanced Extensions: more tools to customize gameplay and port your pdfs over to Fantasy Grounds, use it as a reference library and share content with your players without violating copyright laws.

-Various tips to make your job as easy and painless as possible.

I will then open up the workshop for a Q&A.

You will need Fantasy Grounds installed with a Full or better license (If you want to follow along on your own desktop that is – otherwise you’re welcome to just listen).

Because of it’s screen sharing capability, Q&A app and ability to make a youtube video I decided to make this a Google Hangout OnAir! event.I will disable cams and mics but the Q&A app will be enabled so you can ask questions at any time. I’ll do my best to answer them. If you can think of specific things you’d like to see covered by the workshop, email me and I’ll put it on my list of things to talk about time permitting.
This event will run at this time:
This event was previously scheduled to last one hour but I extended it one more hour to allow for your questions to be answered.
This even is presented to you by The Society of Extraordinary Gamers.
To attend this broadcast here’s the link to the event page on Google+: FG Con IV: So you want to be a Savage Worlds GM (on Fantasy Grounds) – Google+
If you know of anybody interested in this, feel free to send them an invite or share the event with your circles, on rpg forums, facebook groups, etc.
Again, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me by email or Google+ (https://plus.google.com/u/0/111990897275745324442/about)

I will have Aki Heikkinen as a guest. The rest of you will be part of the audience and able to ask us questions through the Q&A app. So you don’t have to worry about being on camera or anything.


Bookings for this event have now closed.

    This is great idea! Are you planning to do this with SavageWorlds v3 or maybe in v4 ruleset?

      It depends if the update is officially released before or after the con and if I have time to get familiar with the new features. But I don’t think it’d be a good idea to showcase a beta version. I’ll hint to the upcoming features for sure if v4 hasnt been released yet.
