I have uploaded an app to play tannhauser online remotely check it in its thread Here http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_foros_discusion.asp?e.... You still need to own the game as there are no rules or automation there, just the tokens, maps and a dice roller.

The FFG forum thread was closed when they changed platform, essentially the tannhauser online app is a "ruleset" (a mod) for a role playing app called Fantasy grounds. FG is free for use 1vs1 so you dont need to pay for it!

You can chek how it works in a couple of videos posted in Miahs blog here http://miah000.blogspot.com/2012/02/fan-submission-video-ins...

Miahs blog seem to be offline too! :-(

I'd like to check this out. It appears to work with Fantasy Grounds, yes? I can't figure out how to install it, though. Did I need to get the paid version of Fantasy Grounds?

Found the original blog post with the explanation, http://miahs-front-toward-enemy.blogspot.com.es/2011/10/fan-...


How to install video (4 min):

How to play video (20 min):

For ease:

I have been playing Tannhauser for a while and also came across the difficulty to play Tannhauser with someone over a distance. I have seen some of the trials done by people like Miah but decided to give it my own try on a different direction.

I have done so using a well known software often used for pen and paper role playing over the internet called "Fantasy Grounds 2", together with a voice program like Skype.

The program has a free demo which is all you need to play Tannhauser (as it is restricted to only 1 client and 1 host and that's all we need for 2 players), it can be downloaded here: http://www.fantasygrounds.com/downloads/ just click the option "no serial" during the installation.

The only other piece you need (only for the computer that is going to act as a host) is the "Tannhauser for FGII campaign" I have created for the tool which can be found here:

Last version: http://www.mediafire.com/file/xr6zu7bcocxzq8n/Tannhauser_Onl...

Version including an old FG2 demo software: [url]http://www.mediafire.com/file/171a9w9ncbl7swm/Tann_Final.rar[/url]

To install it, with FGII already installed go to start -- > programs --> Fantasy Grounds II and then click on "Application data folder", unzip the content there, overwriting if prompted.

Do read the "readme" it contains all the installations instructions you might need.



Once it is installed just open the program, on the host click on "Load demo Campaign" and select "Tannhauser".

Once the program is open click on the "Story" box, (top right) and the rest is explained inside! the tokens can be found on the token box at the bottom




Here is a capture of how it looks during a game, (it looks cluttered due to small screen space but try it in a 1920 monitor, there is plenty of room!!)



Some features:

- Characters sheets can be minimized for convenience and screen real state

- Integrated dice roller

- Integrated tables for randomly rolling challenges and crate contents

- Tokens can be rotated freely (so the stats marker actually work as intended in real life!

- Community created maps inside!

I don't quite understand. What's the relationship between Tannhauser Online and Fantasy Grounds?

I used fantasy grounds in the same way someone would use tabletopia or tabletop simulator.

I have all the graphic resources in case anyone wants to bring tannhauser over to one of these platforms.

I would have exalted if someone puts Tannhauser onto tabletop simulator on Steam...

Can we just play Tannhauser Online with your mediafire file without any one of these platform?

No you need to download the free demo of FGII or use the file that includes an old FGII version and install that one.

Did I mention that you only need 2 players and FGII is free for 2 players?

Just in case... FGII is free if you want to play tannhauser online (2 players)
