Unconventional Fun

It was so loud in there. Tables upon tables filled with enthused gamers from all over the country, from all over the world. I could hide behind my screen no longer. I stood up and started gesturing while describing the scene to the players sitting at my table. Moving as if possessed by a tai-chi grand-master’s spirit I would lean over the table to reach out to attentive eyes and ears. Each of them, like me, had made the pilgrimage to Gen Con, the mecca of the tabletop gaming industry. Adrenaline ran through my veins, my senses were heightened, my focus unfaltering amidst the increasingly loud roar assailing me from all around. I was prepared. I had been looking forward to this for a long time. Fun was had by all. I was hooked. It was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life.

For some gamers, playing RPGs is a private, if not intimate, social event shared between friends. We all had this group, this campaign that made a lasting impression. But life happens, groups break apart and we spend the rest of our career Chasing Amy. Gaming takes us back to that special place but the older you get; the harder it becomes to get your gaming fix.

From October 17th to 19th, I will get to experience the thrill of participating in gaming convention again. I won’t have to leave my house. I will not spend anything on travelling expenses and I will meet fellow gamers from all over the world. New friendships will be born.

This is OUR wild party and everybody is invited. You won’t see me gesturing and I won’t have to yell to be heard. Rest assured though, I will be ready. I will be ready to meet you and for a few hours your character will have to survive being chased by mutants and find out what happened to Mark’s roommate. For a few hours we’ll forget about our bills. All this thanks to Fantasy Grounds and FG Con V. Dare try something new. Isn’t it the reason how you got to experience this wonderful hobby to begin with?

Savage Worlds on Fantasy Grounds

Fantasy Grounds has long been known as the VTT (virtual table top) with best support for Pathfinder. With its direct import of characters from HeroLab and its great built in support for the whole Pathfinder system. Over the years Fantasy Grounds has given just as good support for many other systems, one of which is Savage Worlds.

The Savage Worlds ruleset makes playing online a great experience but Savage Worlds is a generic system that supports any genre and there are a huge number of settings available for play.

Can we play one of the many, great settings?

The answer is of course you can! There are some great add on extensions that make personalising the Savage Worlds ruleset for your favourite setting really easy. At FG Con V you will see a whole raft of different settings being played, each with its own style. These include: East Texas University (NEW!), Achtung! Cthulhu, War of the Dead, Savage Firefly, and many more… In most cases these have been fully customised with their own look. Come and join us for some Fast, Furious Fun!!
