released the above piechart showing the top Fantasy Grounds
games run by ruleset for the last 12 month period, and I think its a very interesting graphic.
It certainly shows the dominance of D&D 5e
, with 70%
of the games played on Fantasy Grounds
using the ruleset. Pathfinder, both 1e and 2e
, combine to about 10%
. If you add Starfinder
into the Paizo
slice of the pie, its probably around 12%
is now a very distant number two.
What really brings a smile to my face is the fact that AD&D
comes in with over 11k games run. That's about half the Starfinder
numbers (and more than the number of 4e
games run) and not bad at all for a ruleset from the late 70s ;)

Thanks for sharing this info, Erik. I wonder how these market share figures would compare if pulled from a broader-footprint platform like DriveThru or Lulu. Have you seen similar data from other platforms?ReplyDelete
Some additional context from ICv2 spring 2019 RPG sales: https://icv2.com/articles/markets/view/43732/top-5-roleplaying-games-spring-2019Delete
It'd be interesting to see a comparison and totals of both Fantasy Grounds and Roll20.ReplyDelete
Heartbreaking that Eclipse Phase is not even a blip on the radar.ReplyDelete
Remember that with Fantasy Grounds is heavily bias towards what rulesets are avaliable. The above should be read as "Out of the rulesets avaliable on Fantasy Grounds these are the ones most commonly used."ReplyDelete
Conversely while Roll20 has explicit support for RPGs via character sheet and other customization options. It also has a tag system that you use when you create your game. So what FG calls CoreRPG and MoreCore has additional information via the tags that let's Roll20 figure out what being played.ReplyDelete
