Playing Dungeons & Dragons can be tough, especially on the internet when you fellow adventurers are in different time zones. Luckily, technology has been inching closer and closer to recreating the mythical, if not stereotypical, gaming dungeon with online apps. Michael and I have been tooling around with Fantasy grounds for a bit and we wanted to share our initial impressions. Fantasy Grounds is a beefy and deep tool for playing tabletop games so we still very much had on our bambi legs in the below video. Still, with only the initial bit that we have tested, aided heavily by online tutorial videos, we still really enjoy Fantasy Grounds.
The initial hurdle of figuring out how to use Fantasy Grounds effectively may scare some folks off, especially given the price, but then I remember how difficult I thought Roll20 was when I first used it. Then I think of the hundreds of dollars I’ve spent on D&D insider and books and the time/ financial investment doesn’t seem so harsh. We both agreed that switching our own electronic D&D campaign to Fantasy Grounds would be amazing. Maybe soon?
Let us know your thoughts on this new electronic tabletop future!
