Fantasy Grounds’ 2019 data shows Savage Worlds as the third most popular system on their virtual tabletop; just behind Pathfinder.
Savage Worlds is a popular system, in all its forms, and enjoys a great ecosystem of worlds. One of the reasons it’s so popular on Fantasy Grounds is that PEG didn’t offer much support to other platforms.
This week, Pinnacle Entertainment Group have announced the art director Aaron Acevedo will now also be working as Pinnacle’s Virtual Tabletop Manager. The first announcement that Acevedo has made is additional VTT support.
Hi folks! First, I’m thrilled to be taking on the role of Pinnacle’s Virtual Tabletop Manager. While our great friends at SmiteWorks continue to provide material to Fantasy Grounds, we are expanding support to include Roll20, Astral, and other VTT platforms. Over the coming weeks, we will add official PEG products to the Roll20 Marketplace, as well as adding a new VTT category to the Pinnacle shop itself. We can’t wait to share our products designed for this new format and hear all about your online adventures with them! If you have any questions or comments for us, please contact Dr. Amy Bliss Marshall, our project manager at [email protected]”
Pinnacle COO Jodi Black also added;
“The relationship with Smiteworks, the creators of Fantasy Grounds, and Pinnacle is firmly established. We encourage anyone seeking a fully functional virtual tabletop platform at this time to check out the free demo version found here.”
My take on it is that there’s no disharmony between PEG and Fantasy Grounds’ owner Smiteworks; it’s just that Savage Worlds wants to as available as possible.
