Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition by Roll20

1707874553

Edited 1707874729
Someone brought it up about a year ago. It was read but bypassed because there were other problems that were more important. In the grand scheme of things, everything is important, but D&D is the money maker. If you want to be heard, play D&D, learn to code all this and fix it yourself, or if your lazy like me, just wait for the crumbs and hope it's something you wanted to see get fixed or go to another VTT. That's your options, like 'em or not.
Funny you are speaking of D&D. They are implementing a whole new sheet for this. And tbh I have hopes (even though they are very little), they will do the same for Cthulhu as well (with a different base and thus new possibilies to add things later on without breaking the sheet as has happend so often in the past)...

I don't know what happens but when I roll a roll with a skill, it rolls two dice, two tens and two units, this doesn't happen with characteristics, I have disabled the bonus/penalty rolls in the character sheet and in the game options. this is the general configuration of the game and this is the character's
I'm getting an error message on my character when I click on Luck, " No attribute was found for @{ Milton Daniels|luck_roll}".  What is this and can I make it work properly?
Is EDIT Mode Enabled or Disabled? If the field itself is empty and you click on it, you get that error as no value is present. To fix that, Turn ON Edit Mode, enter the value and turn it back off. You can also toggle those fields in settings that you can edit them even with Edit mode turned off...

This seems to be an old configuration / old screenshot as they added the "Arkham Skills" recently in settings... But regarding the roll behavior... this is intended! WHY it rolls that many die I cannot tell you, but devs stated it is intended earlier in this thread...

I tried both, and nothing happened. Including re-entering the value. TheMarkus1204 said: Is EDIT Mode Enabled or Disabled?

We had this roll come up in last night's session. 2/28/24 It is a homebrewed game, However, last I read we thought a 100 roll would reflect a failure or crit failure. Clearly this hasn't been fixed. I had to explain to the player that by going over 100 on the skill that there is still a possibility of failures. The perk of this though is that you get to have a higher value of a Hard or Extreme roll. She won't ever roll over 100 so that skill is locked. I may give her a bump if she rolls a 01 but we haven't crossed that bridge. I try to be more tolerant and enjoy the players working thru insanity than death.

It is more than likely a setting, if not, and you run mods of some kind, don't forget to reset your sandbox. I have my initiative rolls flake out at least 1x a session and the players just can't roll. After I reset the sandbox magic happens again.. Just throwing this out there to help you.

100 is always a fumble, even if you have a higher value than that... and according to the devs, it WILL get fixed SOMETIME in the future... there is no ETA as always! But since they are NOT going to implement a select for different ERAs although there are quite a few of them now and even the new ones directly from CHAOSIUM is really sad and tbh makes me not want to use that sheet anymore for those OR buy any other Cthulhu Product here on Roll20... THOUGH I do HOPE that once the new DnD Sheet is finished, we will get a NEW ONE that has a true era select and other neat features!!!

Just a quick question, and I hope it's appropriate here: Has anyone bought the Keeper's book and Investigator's Handbook on Roll20? Are they worth getting? i have the physical and pdfs of both so I don't need them to run anything, and I ran a CoC campaign without having them in Roll20 but I'm wondering if the books are useful to have in Roll20.  Thx.

Are there any books or other items in the marketplace that you do recommend? As I said, I ran a module previously without problems - Horror on the Orient Express - but I spent a lot of time typing in monster stats and spell information and finding appropriate images to use as tokens, etc. It would be nice to cut down on my preparation time and effort, if I can. I'm probably going to be running another module soon - either Masks of Nyarlathotep or Curse of Nineveh.  Any suggestions on useful items in the Roll20 Marketplace?

The Grimoire and the Malleus Monstrorum are really good. With those you can just drag'n drop spells if needed from the Grimoire or Monsters / Entities when needed from the Malleus Monstrorum ;) Saul J. said: Are there any books or other items in the marketplace that you do recommend?

Sorry, it seems to have been corrected in the few days since I last looked at this.
The Malleus Monstrorum is very expensive... I'll have to think about whether or not it's worth it once I've read through the module I end up running. But, thanks for the recommendations!

Any Updates on the sheet?
Hi GM Scott, that was brought up about a year ago. My advice for you is play D&D. That sheet gets more updated than Call of Cthulhu.

While I do understand this, I also see the missed opportunity on Roll20 Side! There are so many GREAT Adventures for Cthulhu and with the "official" sheet, you can not simply play those but need to adjust the sheet first... Also, since there are Chaosium Products available on the Roll20 store, why not add Regency Cthulhu and others as well? And I do know as well that the focus lies on DnD 5E as it is the "main" System here on Roll20 (or rather the system that is played most!), but it would not hurt to look in other directions (or systems) as well and expand their catalogue on those!

The choice of what to put on the marketplace is up to the originating company. If Regency Cthulhu isn't there, it's because Chaosium doesn't put it there. (And the reason there, too, is money; Chaosium has to consider the amount of money it will make from sales on Roll20 vs. the amount of money they will have to pay someone like Sigil Services to "Roll-20-ize" the book and get it into a format for the compendium.) So that has nothing to do with Roll20 and everything to do with Chaosium. As for "looking in other directions", again this comes down to money. Roll20 has a finite amount of coders and employees, and therefore a finite amount of development time. They're not going to put someone on a project that earns 10% of what a D&D project earns, unless there's a reason. It's all about the money. The only way to get more Developer time on Cthulhu is either: A) get Chaosium to put products on the Marketplace that require it. For example, Arkham introduced new skills and went on the marketplace. Ergo, the sheet got edited to support those necessary changes. B) Get a lot more people buying Cthulhu products on the Roll20 Marketplace. If it becomes a larger portion of their market share, then they'll devote a correspondingly larger part of their developer time to it.  However, getting upset because they're not supporting changes that don't make them any return (in essence, doing the work for free), doesn't make a lot of sense. That's not how businesses stay in business. That's why fans can create sheets for other systems, or other sheets for Cthulhu. They can choose to devote their time and knowledge to seeing the changes they want to see, and it doesn't impact Roll20's bottom line.

If it becomes a larger portion of their market share, then they'll devote a correspondingly larger part of their developer time to it.  However, getting upset because they're not supporting changes that don't make them any return (in essence, doing the work for free), doesn't make a lot of sense. That's not how businesses stay in business. That's why fans can create sheets for other systems, or other sheets for Cthulhu. They can choose to devote their time and knowledge to seeing the changes they want to see, and it doesn't impact Roll20's bottom line.

Foundry users always make me laugh a little. It's like Linux users. "Hey, you should be using THIS product instead! Sure, all you have to do is set up your own server, configure your router, hack your install, load your modules..." Or, I could use the Windows equivalent, which just works.

Thing is, I have a foundry License and there are enough hosters out there to host my games (theforge for instance). Yes, it costs a fee, but it really is worth it because you don't have to "hack" your Router in case of Port forwarding to get Players to actually join your games... I know that several Chaosium Products are already implemented for Fantasy Grounds. But as said, for the running campaign I will stay with Roll20 and after that? We will see!

Will THIS ever get changed? (Skill order in other languages) In the Screen you see the Sheet in German! As you can see, the Skill order is wrong! Skills do appear in the original order of the English Skills! WHY is this STILL a thing?! (Asking this NOT only for myself but for my Players as well!) EDIT: "Navigation" should be "Orientierung" "Schätzen" should be "Werte schätzen" EDIT 2: THIS does absolutely NOT look good and should be fixed! (Layout issue!)
German Translation of the NPC Sheet is a mess! It is a mix of different languages!
