FG Con 16

Global RPG Con - Friday April 16th to Sunday April 18th, 2021

Event List

FG Con – June 2014

FG Con 4 – Some Stats & Observations! 

With FG Con 4 behind us everyone wants to know when FG Con 5 will be happening. We havent locked in a date just yet but its looking like October 2014 for our next FG Con. We are also looking at what interest there is in running FG Con more often.

With over 40 sessions going ahead it was a busy weekend. Here are some stats!

  • 39% of players played their first Fantasy Grounds session.
  • 82% of players rated their session 4 or 5 stars.
  • 12 different rulesets were played with Pathfinder and Savage Worlds taking 1st and 2nd place.
  • We had some 2hr game sessions and one game that ran for 3 sessions of 4hrs each.

Some of the feedback we got included:

“The GM was very fun and friendly. He played loose with the rules in a way that made the game quick and player focused”

“I don’t get to play games much due to work and family commitments but this was superb. A great way to continue a life long love. Thank you.”

“The improvements Moon Wizard keeps adding are fantastic. The product just keeps getting better and better. I can’t sing your praises enough.”

“The improvements in the last 4 years are awesome!”

It was unfortunate timing that the Steam launch happened the same weekend as few new players were able to get in on games as most were full. Sometimes the gaming gods can be fickle…

For any of you who are thinking about running a session as a GM at FG Con 5 feel free to drop us an email to team@fg-con.com with any queries.

Ruleset Wizard for Fantasy Grounds

And if the Steam Launch wasnt enough – programming guru Psicodelix has just launched a crowdfunding project to complete his Ruleset Wizard for Fantasy Grounds (RWfFG). This awesome tool will greatly speed up development of new rulesets.

The target is ambitious but its an involved and complicated piece of software to deliver. Psicodelix knows his stuff and Im really looking forward to this seeing the light of day. The project basically needs 280 backers at €50 and we are home – whilst that might seem like a stretch I know plenty of people who would like to be able to code their favourite rulesets – or even just the character sheets and themes – and this tool will make that achievable for most of us. All that goodness for only €50.

The new Video for this project has been posted – if you checked it out earlier and werent quite convinced please have another look!


Epic Character Generator

Epic Character Generator

Our friends over at Epic Generator http://epicgenerator.net/ have released new character options for their cool character image generator program. You can download and try the program for free and if you buy anything use the code FGCON2014 on checkout for a 10% discount on any purchases over $10.

You can make nicely detailed and personalised images of your character and some licenses also allow you to use the images in your works.

Also we have one free character pack to give away – if you are interested please send an email to team@fg-con.com and one random responder will receive the free pack.
