VTT - Fantasy Grounds, Foundry & Roll20

Hi Guys,

I use FGU to play our Traveller games online, and I'm very happy with it. I do think however, that Mongoose could bring more people into the game, or at least help some people who play online by having some sort of official character sheet on Foundry & Roll20. There is a (not particularly great) character sheet on Roll20 and a Cepheus one on Foundry, but nothing that looks like the official Mongoose character sheets. is there anything in the pipeline for those people who don't use FGU? (and there are a lot). Cheers.

Yeah, I'm starting an R20 game myself and I'm not very much in love with the sheet that's available there. It's what they have, and I'll work with it, but it really isn't as nice or useful as other companies.

So Mongoose, we could really use some VTT support here....

Yes, the character sheet on Roll20 is functional at best. It does seem to have some bugs even, as I've had it happen in my games that players' info disappears from the sheet with no explanation why. A new sheet would very much be appreciated. Thus far, I've been limping along with the current sheet, but it really frustrates me and isn't a great "calling card"/advertisement for new players. C'mon Mongoose, get someone to do a professional character sheet for Traveller on Roll20, please!

Having seen what is possible for character sheets on Roll20, e.g. the Free League ones for Alien RPG or Twilight 2000 4e, it would be a dream to have something approaching even half their functionality with a smooth, professional layout and appearance.

I wanted to drop in on this one as well - I'd really like to see compendium for foundryVTT. They would be something I would pay for, along with the book / PDF.

The current TwoDSix system for Foundry is actually pretty good and is continually improving... but could really benefit from something as simple as compendiums featuring the official skill list, gear, and maybe some common starships. If I could buy these things rather than having to manually enter them on an as-needed basis, it'd be much more likely my next long-running campaign would be in Traveller rather than some other system where there are fewer wheels to re-invent.

I'm currently running a Traveller Game on Roll20. It's been lots of fun. I ended up using the setting for my game at Travellercon-USA.

I love playing Traveller with my friends online - been doing it on Roll20 for about 5 yrs with no issues.
Branched out to Foundry vtt to check it out.. converted The Relic over to Foundry but haven't published it yet.
I've got an adventure and a few classic starship deck plans on roll20 marketplace - you can also use my ship deck plans on any vtt system.
More to come on both Foundry and Roll20 platforms.
In care you are interested, here's a link to resources about playing Traveller on Roll20:

The systems do work, it's just the idea of getting all the information in there - equipment, tables etc (for me at least!). It's a lot of work up front, even just for the core rulebooks. I definitely want to use VTTs more.

If you do publish the relic for Foundry, I will be interested to see what it looks like / how adventures can be set up for use.
