    Basic = I try my best to have no gamebreaking UI issues happening, other than that you must request eg. extension support specifically.

Special Contributors

By now I must call them Co-Authors! MeAndUnique and Saagael have helped me tremendiously with their invaluable help with .xml and .lua code and general workflow.
Without them this theme wouldn't be available with this level of polish! 3.

Illustrious Community Egghead bmos has also contributed greatly to the theme and my learning process. Thanks!
Shoutout to Zarestia and all the folks at the unofficial developers guild, you rock!


Hello fellow Adventurers,
I proudly present to you my take on a dark, reduced and calm Fantasy Grounds Unity user-interface. I did my best to make it look more modern (within the limitations of FGU) and support most available extensions.

If you tend to play in dimmed light conditions or prefer a dark UI for your Software, my Theme might be to your liking. It was developed at 120 cd/m screen brightness in AdobeRGB color space. Most monitors ship with brighter factory settings and can't use the full Adobe Color spectrum. Therefore, make sure that you're not using exaggerated brightness and contrast settings.


  • Substantial support for other extensions - My theme overwrites UI elements of other extensions, no patchwork graphics styles please!
  • Reduced, dark color palette.
  • Eye-friendly 7:1 value contrasts for good readability even with small fonts.
  • Completely remade UI. No soft edges, no rounded corners, no 3D Effects, no textures - simple, flat and clear.
  • Fonts replaced with Roboto Sans.
  • Font sizes and colors adjusted.
  • Color Coded Action Buttons for ease of use.
  • Script enhanced radial menu that features more unique icons than normally possible. Big thank you to Saagael and MeAndUnique!
  • No annyoing link Icons in the Hotkey Bar - brought to you by MeAndUnique!
    - You have to re-link already placed hotkey links to make the icon disappear.
    - This functionality is now also available as the standalone "Bartender" Extension, measures are taken that there is no conflict if both extensions are active.
  • and a lot more...

Visual Extension Support

I try my best to make all available extensions visually compatible (there should be no code related problems). If you find an extension out there that needs adjustments to fit my theme, give me a heads-up and I'll try to fix it.

Compatibility Information

This theme uses a very high loadorder of 1500 in order to be able to overwrite most extension's UI elements out there. Therefore any extension that you want to overwrite my theme with must use a loadorder value of 1501 or higher. This is set in the extension.xml within any extension.

  • Currently there are no reports of incompatibilities or conflicts.
  • If you pay close attention to the console log you might find [Warning] entries related to this theme. You can safely ignore them, as they only tell you, that you're not using an extension supported by my theme.

Hall of Fame

  • The nameless soul led on in silence. A ghoustly figure floating just a few feet in front of me, ragged clothes billowing in an otherworldy breeze.
    The translucent body shimmered in a faint silverish, blue light. I followed it into a room, that looked to have been a study at some point in the distant past.
    Crumbling parchment and dried out inkpots, old maps of long lost kingdoms and tomes of forgotten wisdom lay about in a somewhat orderly fashion.
    "Remarkable!", I thought, as I let my eyes examine the treasures before me. The ghostly figure stopped and turned to me, his fair face seemed to kindly smile as he noticed the exitement in my eyes.
    His hands began to gesture around the room, pointed at some of his belongings, and then at me. He smiled again.
    I understood, nodded, bowed deeply and then returned his smile. Certainly not as fair as his, but in kind.
  • Where wares and coin change purse and hands, the one called Bayne there proudly stands, manifold a craft displayed, unlucky those who come too late, missing out on goods so great!
  • Kindred spirit, generous soul, artful script makes worth a scroll, it's weight in gold and read out loud. Thank you bmos, you can be proud!
  • The one who shares with golden heart, bright in soul and sound in art, has given plentiful his craft; abundant the amount amassed; eyes wide open I childlike laughed. Thank you Dud-in!
  • The incantation rose about, the whisper soon became a shout as magic made his body stout. Thanks to Nick Frost for donating!
  • When darkness crawls and shadows loom, one misstep here could spell our doom; Smart the one with torch and lamp, will be remembered as a champ; As he who gave the gift of light, has earned himself the title knight.
  • The cartographers pride is a finished map. The travelers joy is a detailed map. The adventurers staple is a bundle of maps - They all came signed by the one whiteTiki.
  • Whispers in the kings hall, the traveling bards, puffers on the street, voices at the regulars' table, the birds in the trees; They all sing praise to the one Aridhro, who made sure the army's soldiers won't use adrenaline during battle, but solely move on caffeine alone.
  • The warriors raise a freshly brewed toast to cmtpcm, who contributed to the cause with a large gift of coffee!
  • The Valkyries cheer, for their master has spread his wealth and name to support the cause. MadNomad!
  • Hushed voices whisper a glorious name. A supporter that aided the cause! Did you hear it too?
  • The heavens sing of a name, angelic and pure, an euphony to ears and heart. Its wielder brought gifts from the storytellers wares!
  • The scribes bow their heads in awe to, MeAndUnique, Saagael, mattekure, Superteddy57, Styrmir, damned and Trenloe for their help and ingenuity with complex scripture.
  • Wisdom poured by CMYKMatter and Drowbe helps the eye stay focused.
