Well, that was fun

We’ve already talked about licensing, support and compatibility for Level Up: Advanced 5th Edition. With under 13 weeks to go before the big Kickstarter launches, we wanted to share some of the other work we’ve been doing. Alongside the actual hardcover books, we want to be sure there is robust electronic support for our game.

Interesting.....public? So, people could just steal it free? I hope they pay, because the books look amazing in the previews....

On the other hand, Paizo pretty much does this....and you can use DnDBeyond free with the SRD rules....so, I guess you aren't on an island.

Now, build me a character builder! :)

So, for clarification "When we launch, we’ll have the full rules online" means that it will be the full rules from launch going forward, not just the launch/Core rules available online, correct?

I don’t understand the difference? They’ll be available at launch and after launch.

This'll definitely be handy. As much as I love the hardbooks, and will be getting at least two of them for LU (not quite sold on the other MM yet), being able to look stuff up in pdfs and online is very useful. Especially since it'll make it easier for my friends to make their characters, since I doubt they'd buy the books until we had a chance to play.

I made this comment in another thread but this seems like the proper place for it instead.

Have y'all thought about Foundry VTT Support?

Also wanted to say to keep up the great work :)

I know I'm really hoping for it. Don't think I could ever go back to R20 after using Foundry. I'm assuming it would be easier to fork the 5e system and add to it instead of building a new one from the ground up, which should help speed things along. I've mentioned it in the Foundry Discord before, and really hoping someone goes for it. Def have a game I want to run once it has a system in Foundry.

With the caveat that creating versions of a game for each platform takes months, yes, we've thought about various platforms. At launch we'll have a Roll20 character sheet, and we hope to go on from there in 2022.

Given the open Javascript nature of Foundry specifically, would the team be in support of a community driven development of the System for it so you could focus on platforms where that isn't an option? Or would you rather wait and develop the system yourselves? Not a programmer, can't offer to be part of it, but thought it might be a useful question.

Thanks for the response Morrus!

I do agree with HeroicVanguard above though! Hopefully you would allow the community to help make a system if it helps alleviate time and money from you guys :)

I use Roll20 and am quite happy with it, but I would also like to switch eventually to Foundry. Whenever we finish my current campaign by the end of the year or beginning of next, I would like to have a full Level Up/Foundry reboot.

The Kickstarter doesn’t end until early November. Whatever comes out of it in terms of various VTT platforms, they will take a lot longer than a month to do - likely many months of work. The only thing we know for certain right now is we’ll have a Roll20 character sheet at launch. Right now all our energy is focused on getting the books ready for October.
