Hosting Service Providers
Foundry Virtual Tabletop is a self-hosted application - but many users may not wish to deal with the headache of managing the technical configuration of the software. I'm proud to partner with the following hosting service providers who offer a managed solution which hosts your Foundry VTT games in a cloud environment. If you're interested in skipping the setup and getting straight to rolling dice, please consider the following partners.
Tired of running your own server and fighting with routers and config files? Use The Forge to painlessly run your own adventures and fight goblins instead!
The Forge is a fully integrated, turn-key hosting service for Foundry VTT created by KaKaRoTo. Get your own Foundry Table up and running with a single click, and benefit from the integrated user experience allowing you to save time and effort, whether for initial set-up or for managing your games regularly. Make your server public or private and share unlimited invitation links for your players to access your game for free. Each game benefits from its own unique subdomain, allowing you to launch into a world directly at any time or confine players to a specific world.
Through the Forge, all assets are delivered via a high speed distributed network of servers, allowing your international players to load your game assets with maximum bandwidth and minimal latency. The only thing that should be slow and painful is their deaths at the hand of a lich! The Forge’s auto-snapshot feature can save your game data after every session and synchronize it with an external server of your choice and allows you to go back in time to inspect what your game looked like on any given date. With unlimited bandwidth usage, high storage quotas, and the ability to import your existing data or export your games for backup purposes, The Forge is the solution for all your game hosting needs.
Developed and operated by KaKaRoTo, you can expect the same level of polish, dedication and quality that you've seen from his numerous free FVTT modules or the convenience and seamless integration that you experience with his Beyond20 browser extension. To learn more about The Forge and for any questions you have please join the The Forge Discord channel.
Please note that The Forge is still in Beta; you can experience the full set of features as it is rolled out in the coming months.
Foundry Server provides a reliable, cost effective, and responsive hosting service for the Foundry VTT gaming environment. Our servers are located on a major US backbone and are configured for reliability and scalability. You have full control over your game server and game data at all times. Hosting is free for all Foundry VTT Patreon members during the Beta testing phase.
Future plans include locating servers in Europe, South East Aisa, and South America and the addition of a true FTP/sFTP server to better manage your game data. So come on over and check us out at https://www.foundryserver.com!
Foundry Server is created by Dax - to learn more about its features and for any questions you have please visit the following support and information page.
COVID 19 Update: In the light of the COVID 19 pandemic we have temporarily transitioned to a “by donation” model instead of a monthly subscription for Foundryvtt hosting. We will be making significate changes over the summer and so we will keep the site in “Beta” mode. You still however will be required to have a valid license key from Foundryvtt to operate your game server.
Content Creators and Integrations
Foundry Virtual Tabletop is proud to have established partnerships with several other creators or projects who are producing fantastic software, content, or services.
Forgotten Adventures is an artistic community of virtual tabletop gaming enthusiasts organized by Stryxin, a devoted artist and dungeon master who creates tokens, props, textures, and battlemaps specifically designed with virtual tabletop gaming in mind. Patreon supporters of Forgotten Adventures gain access to the complete portfolio of assets with new releases arriving several times per month. Stryxin is even tackling an incredibly ambitious goal to draw creature tokens for every D&D5e monster.
I am thrilled to partner with Stryxin and Forgotten Adventures to showcase his fantastic artwork and make it available to Foundry Virtual Tabletop users as part of our D&D5e system implementation which features token artwork by Stryxin for all the creatures which have currently been completed - eventually covering the entire Monsters SRD compendium.
These included tokens are just a subset of the amazing work available in this community so please be sure to support Forgotten Adventures on Patreon for even more content. Visit https://www.patreon.com/forgottenadventures/ for more information!
Dungeondraft by Megasploot is a dungeon and battlemap creation software from the maker of Wonderdraft which is designed to feature an unintimidating UI, intuitive tools for a fast map creation workflow, and a beautiful library of built-in artwork and textures.
Creating a map in Dungeondraft is easy with the smart tiling and object scattering system which allows you to paint detailed landscapes and terrain with just a few clicks of your mouse. Dungeondraft also features a built-in lighting system as well as dungeon and cave generators. The software does not require an internet connection, is DRM free, and is a one-time purchase to buy.
One of the most exciting aspects of Dungeondraft is that it integrates with Foundry Virtual Tabletop using the Dungeondraft Importer which will automatically import and set up Walls and Ambient Light sources attached to your Dungeondraft map for lightning fast game session prep.
Dungeon Fog is an online map maker & authoring tool for RPG game masters. With the extensive DUNGEONFOG Editor you can draw your RPG tabletop maps with just a few clicks – no more patching up map tiles! Create multi-level dungeons, terrain, or entire worlds in an instant. Generate your GM-Notes automatically and export or print high-res images and notes, or send a Fog of War version for your players to your TV!
Thanks to the hard work of community modders, Foundry Virtual Tabletop features a Dungeon Fog integration module which can automatically configure walls and doors for the fog of war and ambient lighting system automatically by exporting data directly from Dungeon Fog and importing into Foundry VTT. Learn more on the Installing Game Systems and Modules page.
To celebrate our partnership, you can use the discount code FOUNDRY when subscribing to the Dungeon Fog service for a 10% discount on the price of subscription! Visit https://www.dungeonfog.com/foundry to take advantage of this offer!
DunGen is a Dungeon Generator that creates high resolution maps ready to import into Foundry VTT. It offers many room variations with several themes to choose from, and uses a custom algorithm to try and generate a logical dungeon. DunGen is still in development and updated often with new rooms, themes and features.
In addition to the generated map images themselves, you can also generate a full scene file including pre-built walls to take full advantage of Foundry’s dynamic lighting. You can see this integration in action in this short video.
