Hi, I'm the VTT content developer. Thanks for letting us know! I won't be able to directly provide customer support via DriveThru RPG discussions, I'll only be able to do that through email at, or if you prefer, one of our other listed support channels such as Discord.

In this case I believe this is where you're stuck: Login to your new Foundry VTT "World." Go to the Settings tab (top right "gears" icon), click the Manage Modules button, and see if the Advanced Fantasy module is there. If it is, enable it by checking the box and submitting the window. Your content will be in the Compendium Packs tab (book icon with an @-sign inside).

If this is not where you're stuck, I encourage you to send an email. It will be helpful for you to show me a screenshot of which Foundry VTT page it says you have purchased the content, because that may be a clue as to what to do next.
There are some things you can try:

Out of curiosity, does this support both descending and ascending AC?

The free OSE system on foundry does, so yes. :

I'm very happy with this release!

From what I gather, it's compatible with v11 only. It should be mentioned very very clearly on the page, *especially* since v11 stable release is less than a day old (at the time of this writing). Same goes for all the modules.

Also, for the owner of books and PDF, will there be some kind of discount? Thank you!

Yeah, I bought it, redeemed it, and haven't upgraded my FoundryVTT from v10 to v11. It's not showing up yet.

Recommended by the FoundryVTT developer to check the package pages before purchasing on DriveThruRPG.

Does require v11.

And requires the ose Game System for FoundryVTT.

Hi, I'm the VTT content developer. If there's an additional place we're advertising this content where we've forgotten to write V11-only, please contact me on any of the support channels we've listed. I've just given Foundry VTT Staff some feedback that V10 should show the content greyed out, and give a version warning, so you're not left wondering what happened to your content.

Product Information
Silver seller
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
