    Fantasy Grounds Ruleset Usage Q1 2018 -- All Holding Steady!

    Fantasy Grounds has sent over its Q1 2018 usage reports, broken down by game system. No real surprises -- D&D 5E is way in the lead as usual, followed by Pathfinder, Savage Worlds, and then D&D 3.5. with very little change in their percentage shares since 2017. However, the total number of games is up!

    "CoreRPG" is the default module used for multiple game system without specific modules of their own. For those looking for Starfinder, the Starfinder module for Fantasy Grounds only launched in February, so it should feature prominently in the next quarter's statistics (the offline version outpaced Pathfinder in ICv2's Fall 2017 list).

    You can see the full stats for 2017 here. D&D 5E is up 1% to 65%, Pathfinder holds steady at 12%, as does Savage Worlds at 6%. D&D 3.5 has dropped 1% to 3%. Total games has increased by just over 38K (about 6%) from 619,481 to 657,782.

    Does the data reflect active games with at least one session during the quarter or total games within the environment as logged by subscribed DMs regardless of activity?

    Be well

    Those are step function increases for 5e. Wonder what generated the increase.

    Interesting. With that many players and so few on the FG Lfg forums, it appears most have a group in mind before jumping in.

    Yeah, it's likely very DM driven.

    I'm presently learning FG and already have my group formed for when we go live with it.

    Not really surprising. 5e is the 80-pound gorilla and the rest of the world is... I guess making it ok? depends if you see lack of growth as acceptable or not.

    I'll admit I was not expecting to see savage world so high.

    Doesn't cover genesys since it uses a barely modified Star Wars EotE engine that still registers as star wars
