This stand-alone extension for Fantasy Grounds allows you to create and preload multiple NPC groups, then activate them with one click as your players explore a dungeon.

This extension unlocks the following functions:

  • Preload multiple NPC groups on a battlemap, but keep them off the Combat Tracker, 

  • Make the groups visible to your players with a single click as they explore your dungeon,

  • Add and remove entire groups from the combat tracker with one button click,

    • A “friends” button extends this functionality to friendly & neutral NPCs as well!

  • Preemptively buff NPCs before they are encountered,

    • Setting up an ambush has never been easier!

Note: This extension was created for Fantasy Grounds Unity 5E ruleset. It has not been extensively tested on FG Classic and thus will not be supported / maintained with FG Classic in mind. Use on FGC at your own risk.

Also, understand that Extensions = RISK: We want users to understand that extensions are code that is added or overrides portions of code in the Fantasy Grounds Unity (FGU) application. When the underlying code in FGU changes it can break an extension. We promise to maintain support as FGU is updated. When you run with other extensions they can conflict by trying to overwrite the same parts of the FGU code. We will keep this extensions working with FGU changes, and other extensions created by SilentRuin. We make no promises to resolve conflicts caused by extensions created by other authors.

Art and maps in the screenshots are not included with this extension.

I waited a while for this to get back on being able to be sold I was so excited when it was listed up again. It will not let you down, this is amazing, so helpful as a DM tool to set your game up ahead of time with all the tokens on the map but not clu [...]

Waited a while to get this extension, and the wait was worth it. Keeping the combat tracker managable is something that speeds up sessions, so I really dig this. I find it to be pretty simple to work with, and loaded up a large encounter with multipl [...]

Rules Edition(s)
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.
