Hey all, Not sure where it got lost in the translation, as I tested the mod on a separate PC and it loaded and displayed just fine. I'll repack it this weekend and send it to Hannah for inclusion. Hannah, if you want to take John up on his generous offer, and get a repaired version out before then, I think that's also a great idea.

Hi, I have been trying to get the Fantasy Ground mod working on my end. I place the file in the right folder, but it doesn't appear in my library. Is there anyway I can fix this?

Hi Val! I'm not a FG expert, so let me ask the person who made the mod and get back to you!

Hello! Dan, who made the mod, says that after you put the .mod into the Modules folder (which it sounds like you did) you have to load it. So within FG, in the campaign you want to use it, click the Library button, then from the Library window, click the Modules button in the lower left, then in THAT pop-up, find the College of the Opera module and click the Load button, and make sure you also select the toggle next to the load button to allow players to load it. Once it is loaded, you and the players should see it in the Classes button area.

Let us know if that doesn't work and we can continue to troubleshoot!

Hello, I have the issue as well, and there are a couple other people in the FGC I've spoken to that also have the issue.

The issue is even though the module is placed in the correct modules location, when going to the library and modules to load it, it doesn't show in the list to try and load it (either scrolling through or searching) even though other modules are there as normal including other dmsguild ones.

I found the issue with the Fantasy Grounds module. When it was packaged into a .mod, they left out the db.xml file. This is the file that actually has all of the content. They only included the definition.xml file and the thumbnail. The definition file just contains the name of the module, the author and the ruleset it belongs to.

the thumbnail used was also really huge. it was a 3000x2000 thumbnail image (normally its around 100px for the thumbnail). and no graphics were included either.

Hi all! Thanks for the information. I'll see if the creator of the FG module is able to fix it.

If they are not, please reach out to me, I've already recreated the material as a working FG mod.

Hi John! Dan has kindly agreed that it's best to get a working version up ASAP, so I'd be happy to take you up on your offer. DM me on Twitter and I'll give you my email.

Just a quick note: Aria di Bravura requires a reaction. This will be updated in the next version, once we've finished gathering feedback and comments!

One may say given the bravura style and how quickly you have to sing, reaction is appropriate. MWahahah

I can't reply to a reply on a review, so I'll reply here.

I follow the Mike Mearls rule to compare all subclasses to the core subclasses, not to those in Xanathar's or other sourcebooks, because those are often deliberately "better" in some ways. And I have to agree with John B., 'stunned' is a devastating condition, and way too powerful for a 2nd level cone or area of effect spell that also deals damage. But to break Mike's rule and compare it to the Blade, the flourishes add -- at best -- one bardic inspiration die to the damage against one creature. Stunning, say, three creatures guarantees critical hits against them from all attacks until the stun is broken. That is WAY more powerful than a Blade's flourish... and the...See more

Hi Ed!

There will be a balance/tweak after more playtesting (as well as clarification of things like Aria di Bravura being a reaction). I'm glad you enjoy the subclass, and I trust you'll give it a second look after the tweaks!

Also, I mean....*I* would totally try Piercing Resonance on Strahd......heehee

So here is my suggested fix (at least how I would try it) for Piercing Resonance: After saves are rolled, may expend one Bardic Inspiration die to stun one affected target that failed it save. I find this similar to stunning strike and Ki points, while limiting it too. The idea is that the one who failed the save is the one the voice was focused on.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
