Fantasy Grounds is a virtual tabletop (an application acting as a virtual online gaming table) primarily intended for pen and paper style narrative role playing games. Fantasy Grounds is designed to perform many of the things you would do while playing at a conventional gaming table including character creation, handing out sheets, maps and notes, combat resolution, roll dice and keep track of all game information. Run games as the game master or take part as a player, the application provides all the necessary tools to communicate, manage information and perform tasks.
Fantasy Grounds currently supports Rolemaster Classic (RMC). The ruleset includes the complete text of the core Rolemaster Classic rules: Arms Law; Spell Law; Character Law; and Creatures and Treasures. In addition you can purchase adds ons including Fantasy Weapons, The Armory, the HARP adventure module ‘A wedding at Axebridge’ and the Rolemaster adventures Shadow World: Tales from the Green Gryphon Inn and Dun Cru.
