Fantasy Dice Electronic Ruleset for Online Games

As promised the Fantasy Dice rules module that has been in development for some time now is available on RPGNow and DriveThruRPG. This is a great way to run your Crimson Exodus games online.

The ruleset is free for use, but you will require a copy of Fantasy Grounds II which is a commercial software for roleplaying using a virtual online tabletop with 3D dice, interactive character sheets, map and image sharing, chat and much more. I have no affiliation with FGII, but I’ve used their software for years and find it great for hosting and playing . . . → Read More: Fantasy Dice Electronic Ruleset for Online Games

Fantasy Dice Ruleset Video – Part 1

I’ve uploaded the first video for how to use the Fantasy Dice ruleset for the Fantasy Grounds II virtual tabletop software. The ruleset will be released first for backers of the Crimson Exodus 2nd Edition kickstarter, but will eventually be available either on its own or with other Radical Approach products for free so that everyone can use Fantasy Grounds to play Fantasy Dice games online.

 

Fantasy Dice Review

I don’t quite know where to place Fantasy Dice. It’s an odd sort of game to catagorise because it blends roleplaying and gaming really damn nicely. For example, during character creation, as well as picking a number of numerical values to represent skills and attributes, you get to choose a number of values described only by words, which are designed to encourage roleplaying as well as tactical play.

Wealth and Treasure

In this post I want to discuss how your spend and acquire wealth in Fantasy Dice (and so also Crimson Exodus). It might not make a lot of sense to anyone who hasn’t read the rules, and most players don’t need this much of an understanding of how the wealth stat works. This post is targeted at GMs and players who are interested in the mercantile aspect of roleplaying.

So, in Fantasy Dice what you can afford is determined by your wealth, and so the worth of everything is usually discussed in the term of who can afford it. For example, only the wealthy can afford alchemical ink, but . . . → Read More: Wealth and Treasure

Fantasy Grounds II Rules Module

A brand new Fantasy Dice rules module that has been in development for some time now will soon be released for Fantasy Grounds II to further support the Fantasy Dice roleplaying game for those who rely on online play. As mentioned in the previous post there is already a completely free online game service for Fantasy Dice where you can share character sheets and run games, but Fantasy Grounds II is well established and an online roleplaying game software package which simulates a lot of the tabletop face-to-face experience with virtual dice rolling, integrated maps, character sheets, and more. Much of . . . → Read More: Fantasy Grounds II Rules Module

The Radical Roleplaying Community

An exciting new project has been progressing behind the scenes to build a new online roleplaying community on the web. The site is now complete and ready for use and what it needs is players and game masters to come and use it for their games. Spread the word and bring your friends!

The initial idea was to just create Fantasy Dice character sheets so people could share their characters from Crimson Exodus and other roleplaying games.

The character sheets were designed so they could be kept private or shared with everyone. Thus you could send a link . . . → Read More: The Radical Roleplaying Community

Fantasy Dice One Page Combat Primer

 

Following the One Page Fantasy Dice Primer a new One Page Fantasy Dice Combat Primer is now also available to download for free.

Like the one page primer, the combat primer is not an explanation or complete summary of the system, but intended to give a brief overview of the fundamentals of the combat system.

Together with the one page primer, the one page combat primer is a great cheat sheet reference during play, or as an overview for new players introduced to the Fantasy Dice system . . . → Read More: Fantasy Dice One Page Combat Primer
