Hiya everyone! I've been DMing on Roll20 for a few months now, and playing even longer than that. Along my way though, I ran into and made tons of useful and time-saving macros, and I wanted to share them with ya! If you have any or made some from your own campaigns, post them below! It doesn't matter which game, just be sure to mention which one with your post.

Hi Benson, i love it when people share macros, makes it so much easier for new people to get to grips with the way roll20 can handle those fiddly bits of the games :) It was pointed out to me that the best place to share and get them noticed was the wiki page, take a look at the 5e specific one and see if your work can enhance that page at all... that's what i did with 3.5 =D
I have my collection over at https://wiki.roll20.net/Macros_-_Pathfinder_Exampl...
------------------------------ groupPerception /w gm &{template:default} {{name=Group Perception}} {{Player A=[[1d20]]}} {{Player B=[[1d20]]}} {{Player C=[[1d20]]}} {{Player D=[[1d20]]}} {{Player E=[[1d20]]}} rollTreasure (5E DM's Guide, Green boxed 1 = Magic Item, Red Boxed 0 = Cursed Item, can be modified to adjust rarity of items) /w gm &{template:default} {{name=Loot Table}} {{Magic Item=[[1d12cs>11>11]]}} {{Table A - H=[[1d100]]}} {{Magic Item ID=[[1d100]] }} Can you /w gm using the roll templates?

@Gozer Yes you can! You can even /em them, that doesn't do anything special, just changes the background, but it works.

I'm not too clear on the wiki structure in general but to add new section in OSR that relates to variations of it just edit a higher up level of the page and insert your section where you would see it being of the best benefit. If still unsure about how to affect the wiki layout there is a really helpful 'help' section while in edit mode that you can use to ensure you put headings where headings are required etc. Apologies to anyone more wiki knowledgable than I if i'm wrong...

I came up with a new list of new macros, starting from my favorite to the more mundane stuff. xP TTMS /talktomyself My absolute most favorite macro by far, not only because it's incredibly useful, but so simple as well! It's bascially a togglable echo button for testing macros and commands, as well as possibly doing quick GM rolls using other macros that use the /r syntax instead of /gmroll or /w gm [[inline roll]]. This also works for character sheets too, I believe, but that may have to be tested. xP calc /w gm **=** [[?{Calculator}]] Also a great favorite due to simplicity and usefulness. Too much of a hassle to pull out the calculator or type "/g-m-r-o-l-l *space* etc etc..."? Make a macro for it! Now ya just need to press a button and type in your numbers, like, 45+37, and quickly get the result. Remember, you can do dice rolls as well! So you can type in 4d6+3d4+5 and you'll get the result! combat /w gm &{template:default} {{name=Combat}} {{Attack=[[1d20]] | [[1d20]]}} {{Damage=[[?{Damage}]] ?{Type|Piercing}}} This one's a bit more work, but just marginally. Want to do an attack roll? Click the button, input your damage, such as 3d6+3, and then the type. It's then conveniently spat out in a whisper to yourself listing adv. and disadv. as well as the damage and the type. I didn't add modifiers to attack, simply because DMs can easily memorize a single attack modifier, and can just as easily add that number to the result they roll. For more speed, you can delete the last prompt, ?{Type|Piercing} . UPDATE: Revamped roll macros (d4, d8, d10, d12, d20, d100) /w gm **d4:** [[d4]] /w gm **d6:** [[1d6]] /w gm **d8:** [[1d8]] /w gm **d10:** [[1d10]] /w gm **d12:** [[1d12]] /w gm **d20:** [[1d20]] | [[1d20]] /w gm **d100:** [[1d100]] This change is the same reason I did above for the combat. Modifiers can be added easily in the DMs head, which saves precious seconds that really add up than filling out a ton of modifiers. If you'd like to roll more than once, just spam the button, or alternatively, use the calc macro.

A couple of these could use a facelift, but these are some that I use regularly: Communications Macros Desc a quick way to put a Description, prints in bold centered text in the chat, just type when the prompt pops up, or just hit enter to send: Time Passes /desc ?{What|Time Passes} Em(as) have any token with a name shout something in the chat. Just type in the prompt. Click on a token, click on the macro and it appears in chat as: Frau Blücher speaks: Release the Kraken! /emas @{selected|token_name} speaks: ?{"what?"|eh?}i wGM allows players to communicate with the GM with the press of a button, they just type whatever they want and only you and the character know about it. /w GM ?{Briefly"| Nevermind.} @{selected|token_name} wCH any person with a character sheet can whisper to any token, the controlling player only receives the whisper. by using a click they target the whisper. Notifies all that something was said, but not what was said. @{selected|token_name} speaks low. /w @{target|token_name} ?{"What"|um} /w[language] For every specific language in your game, elvish/klingon/whatever, make a character sheet and give control of that sheet to all players who understand that language. Give the macro to all of those who can speak it. Click character token, click macro, enter text, all who understand the language, others just get the babble line. /w Elvish ?{Say Something|"blah,blah"} /em @{selected|token_name} is babbling in Elvish All of these can be used with 'canned text' If a NPC has a canned speach, like directions to the tax office or the dragon's lair. Or a long scene setter that you want to get exactly right. The air is chill and sharp, a light breeze blows from the east, where the town lies sleeping, only the bakers building their fires when you left your bed and climbed the hill toward the ruins. You smell a papery smoke mixing with the smell of pines, when suddenly looming in the darkness its form only visible by the lack of light. Far off to the north a shooting star streaks through the inky blackness. Blind Roll Several of my macros use the Blind Roll Script. This script generates a roll to the GM without giving the information to the player. Depending on your system this is very good for skill checks and similar situations. If you do not use the API, you can either substitute /gmroll for !broll or remove the roll and substitute a request for the GM to make the roll. This is a link to the script. https://app.roll20.net/forum/post/430878/hide-player-dice-roll-from-the-player#post-432137 /w GM Picks Pockets ?{Who?|"-"} 45 % [the player selects the macro, a prompt asks for the target] !broll 1D100<45 [the script is called to roll the dice and report only to the GM] Two other ways to do this are: /w GM Picks Pockets ?{Who?|"-"} 45 % /gmroll 1D100<45 [This one allows player to see results] or: /w GM Picks Pockets ?{Who?|"-"} 45 % the Gm would then use: /gmroll 1D100 or /w GM [[1D100]] to get the results. You can mess around with the syntax to make it do almost anything, these are best done as token macros for individual characters.

Awesome, thanks Alicia! That's a much better hefty boost to the stats than before. I actually rolled the template and got a 5 on an Attribute once, oopes. xD Or possibly give the chance to everyone to roll twice and take either table.

Heh, The lowest you should get with the one I suggested is a 6 vs 3 with yours without the rerolls.. Though I've rarely seen anything lower than a 10. Would take an exceedingly bad roll to get a 6.
Built up a new macro, cathering to any of you 5E GMs out there!

The API buttons can only be used to trigger an API command i believe, i don't think they can run macros unless you have an api that runs the macro upon command? Happy to be corrected though... [edit] corrected myself, i haven't really played with the buttons but to get them to display correctly you need the following formatting as per the wiki [Button Name](!Button Action) <--- note the ! at the start of the action...

Magic Missile is a silly spell, here is a macro that calculates the number of darts based on Spell Slot Level cast and only shows damage for those darts! Macro Content: (This is from a D&D 5e Character Sheet Spell Book in the Effects Box) My [[?{Spell Slot Level|1}+2]] **Darts** do **Force Damage** to selected targets: Dart 1 [[1d4cf<0cs>5+1]] Dart 2 [[1d4cf<0cs>5+1]] Dart 3 [[1d4cf<0cs>5+1]] Dart 4 [[{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|1})/2),1}kl1*1d4cf<0cs>5+{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|1})/2),1}kl1*(1)}]] Dart 5 [[{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|1})/3),1}kl1*1d4cf<0cs>5+{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|1})/3),1}kl1*(1)}]] Dart 6 [[{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|1})/4),1}kl1*1d4cf<0cs>5+{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|1})/4),1}kl1*(1)}]] Dart 7 [[{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|1})/5),1}kl1*1d4cf<0cs>5+{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|1})/5),1}kl1*(1)}]] Dart 8 [[{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|1})/6),1}kl1*1d4cf<0cs>5+{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|1})/6),1}kl1*(1)}]] Dart 9 [[{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|1})/7),1}kl1*1d4cf<0cs>5+{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|1})/7),1}kl1*(1)}]] Dart 10 [[{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|1})/8),1}kl1*1d4cf<0cs>5+{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|1})/8),1}kl1*(1)}]] Dart 11 [[{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|1})/9),1}kl1*1d4cf<0cs>5+{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|1})/9),1}kl1*(1)}]] The darts all strike simultaneously, and I can direct them to hit one creature or several. Output:
How could this be modified to work for a spell like Scorching Ray, where each ray also requires an Attack Roll (they don't automatically hit, like with Magic Missiles. I am trying to work it out so that each "ray" has its own separate line instead of combined into 1 Effect, with each line containing the ATTACK roll as well as the DAMAGE ON HIT for the applicable number of Rays (with 0's showing in the attack roll and the damage rolls similar to the magic missile above for the ones beyond the total number of rays). I don't think I understand the math enough in the {}kh1 above.

I worked up a scorching ray that will do 4 rays but I can't seem to get any more than that working. Maybe someone can figure out why I can't get past #4. I used the multi-attack tag from the standard 5e sheet to get the four attacks. When you cast three rays (as a level 2 spell slot), it put's 0's in for the rolls. When you cast it at a level three spell slot it makes 4 rays and it will put the numbers in for the attack and damage. Here is the code I used for that. &{template:5eDefault} {{spell=1}} {{title=Scorching Ray}} {{subheader=@{selected|character_name}}} {{subheaderright=Evocation Level 2}} {{subheader2=Range 120'}} {{subheaderright2=Level ?{Spell Slot Level|2} spell slot}} {{emote= Hurling [[?{Spell Slot Level|2}+1]] Rays...}} {{multiattack=1}} {{mattack1=[[1d20 + [[@{Selected|intelligence_mod}]] + [[@{Selected|PB}]] + (@{Selected|global_spell_attack_bonus})]]}} {{mattack1adv=[[1d20 + [[@{Selected|intelligence_mod}]] + [[@{Selected|PB}]] + (@{Selected|global_spell_attack_bonus})]]}} {{mdamage1=[[2d6 + (@{Selected|global_spell_damage_bonus})]] Fire}} {{mcritdamage1=[[2d6]] Fire}} {{mattack2=[[1d20 + [[@{Selected|intelligence_mod}]] + [[@{Selected|PB}]] + (@{Selected|global_spell_attack_bonus})]]}} {{mattack2adv=[[1d20 + [[@{Selected|intelligence_mod}]] + [[@{Selected|PB}]] + (@{Selected|global_spell_attack_bonus})]]}} {{mdamage2=[[2d6 + (@{Selected|global_spell_damage_bonus})]] Fire}} {{mcritdamage2=[[2d6]] Fire}} {{mattack3=[[1d20 + [[@{Selected|intelligence_mod}]] + [[@{Selected|PB}]] + (@{Selected|global_spell_attack_bonus})]]}} {{mattack3adv=[[1d20 + [[@{Selected|intelligence_mod}]] + [[@{Selected|PB}]] + (@{Selected|global_spell_attack_bonus})]]}} {{mdamage3=[[2d6 + (@{Selected|global_spell_damage_bonus})]] Fire}} {{mcritdamage3=[[2d6]] Fire}} {{mattack4=[[1d20*[[{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|2})/3),1}kl1}]] + [[@{Selected|intelligence_mod}*{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|2})/3),1}kl1}]] + [[@{Selected|PB}*{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|2})/3),1}kl1}]] + @{Selected|global_spell_attack_bonus}*{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|2})/3),1}kl1}]]}} {{mattack4adv=[[1d20*[[{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|2})/3),1}kl1}]] + [[@{Selected|intelligence_mod}*{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|2})/3),1}kl1}]] + [[@{Selected|PB}*{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|2})/3),1}kl1}]] + @{Selected|global_spell_attack_bonus}*{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|2})/3),1}kl1}]]}} {{mdamage4=[[2d6*[[{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|2})/3),1}kl1}]] + (@{Selected|global_spell_damage_bonus})*[[{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|2})/3),1}kl1}]]]] Fire}} {{mcritdamage4=[[2d6*[[{floor((?{Spell Slot Level|2})/3),1}kl1}]]]] Fire}} Like I said I tried to get the attack #5 to work, but the code kept breaking, and I'm not sure why. The trick is to multiply all the rolls by {floor((?{Spell Slot Level|2})/3),1}kl1} a nd increase the divisor number by one for each additional attack.
The macro's use the new powercard script and a rollable table(call mine rolljabber) to produce the following: !power {{ --charid|@{selected|character_id} --emote|~L**//@{selected|character_name} [[ [txt] 1t[rolljabber] ]]//** --format|initiative --name| Let's Get Ready to RUMBLE!!! --Initiative|[[1d20+ @{selected|initiative} &{tracker}]] }}
Nice touch with incorporating a table into the emote for the initiative roll. How many entries do you have on it, out of curiosity?
Only 8 so far. If I think of anything witty I add it.
Like I said, I like the touch and flavor that it creates, Kunguru. :)
Here is a macro I made to produce a status board for selected tokens. It can be copied and produced for others. It requires the Token-mod and has functions such as appending the name of the token to match its condition. This way it shows up in the turn counter as well. Also clear all removes relevant icons to stats, and resets the name to the one matching its character sheet. /w GM @{selected|output_option} &{template:5eDefault} {{classaction=1}} {{character_name=@{selected|character_name}}} @{selected|show_character_name} {{title=@{selected|Token_name} Status Board}} {{freetext=[Blinded](!token-mod --set statusmarkers|bleeding-eye name|@{selected|character_name}_Blinded) • A blinded creature can’t see and automatically fails any ability check that requires sight. • Attack rolls against the creature have advantage, and the creature’s attack rolls have disadvantage.

Nice work, I will look forward to playing with it after Game of Thrones.
Benson this is an awesome thread buddy. Thanks for posting it and thanks to everyone else for pitching in. Wish I had something to give back but I'm still very new to all this API thing.

Macros are essentially text commands that you can execute with a single click of a button. Any text commands in Roll20 can be used in macros, and vise-versa. If you'd like, I'll probably run a teaching session about Macros on Wednesday or sometime over the weekend if you're interested in learning. It's really not that hard; you just need to learn the syntax. xP

Also, I thought I posted it here before, but apparently I didn't. o.o So here's another update to my roll macros below. ^.^ I added escalating dice so when I click d4, besides getting a result for 1d4, I get 2d4, 3d4, and 4d4, all within an instant, as well as some secret GM saves. So if the GM wants someone to do a secret save, all he/she has to do is click on the token and click the macro, and the result will be whispered to the player. It takes away control from the player rolling his/her dice, which sucks, but it's quick, easy, and fast, which is always a plus. Also, it'll be like a status update informing the player, which is very useful for Constitution saves against disease. gmSave /w @{selected|character_name} %{selected|Strength_Save} /w @{selected|character_name} %{selected|Dexterity_Save} /w @{selected|character_name} %{selected|Constitution_Save} /w @{selected|character_name} %{selected|Intelligence_Save} /w @{selected|character_name} %{selected|Wisdom_Save} /w @{selected|character_name} %{selected|Charisma_Save} d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, d20, d100 (using 5E template) /w gm &{template:5eDefault} {{ability=1}} {{title=d4}} {{subheader=Rolling d4s to GM}}} {{rollname=Result}} {{roll=[[1d4]] ► [[2d4]] ► [[3d4]] ► [[4d4]]}} /w gm &{template:5eDefault} {{ability=1}} {{title=d6}} {{subheader=Rolling d6s to GM}}} {{rollname=Result}} {{roll=[[1d6]] ► [[2d6]] ► [[3d6]] ► [[4d6]]}} /w gm &{template:5eDefault} {{ability=1}} {{title=d8}} {{subheader=Rolling d8s to GM}}} {{rollname=Result}} {{roll=[[1d8]] ► [[2d8]] ► [[3d8]] ► [[4d8]]}} /w gm &{template:5eDefault} {{ability=1}} {{title=d10}} {{subheader=Rolling d10s to GM}}} {{rollname=Result}} {{roll=[[1d10]] ► [[2d10]] ► [[3d10]] ► [[4d10]]}} /w gm &{template:5eDefault} {{ability=1}} {{title=d20}} {{subheader=Rolling d20s to GM}}} {{rollname=Result}} {{roll=[[1d20]] | [[1d20]]}} /w gm &{template:5eDefault} {{ability=1}} {{title=d100}} {{subheader=Rolling d100s to GM}}} {{rollname=Result}} {{roll=[[1d100]] | [[1d100]]}} http://i.imgur.com/NkPtkbZ.png?1

A modification to the 5e attack macro: Multiple Attacks! By combining both the Weapon and Spell attack attributes, you can make a single macro that attacks twice. Great for Barbarians, monks, etc classes that get multiple attacks. Flurry of Blows example, using character journal attributes: &{template:5eDefault} {{weapon=1}} {{title=Flurry of Blows}} {{subheader=@{Selected|Token_Name}}} {{subheaderright=Two Strikes}} {{attack=[[ 1d20 + @{DEX}[Dex] + @{Prof}[Prof] ]]}} {{attackadv=[[ 1d20 + @{DEX}[Dex] + @{Prof}[Prof] ]]}} {{damage=[[ 1d6 + @{DEX}[Dex] ]]}} {{critdamage=[[1d6]] Addt'l Dmg}}}{{spellshowattack=1}}{{spellattack=[[ 1d20 + @{DEX}[Dex] + @{Prof}[Prof] ]]}} {{spellshowattackadv=1}}{{spellattackadv=[[ 1d20 + @{DEX}[Dex] + @{Prof}[Prof] ]]}}{{spellshowdamage=1}}{{spelldamage=[[ 1d6 + @{DEX}[Dex] ]] }}{{spellcancrit=1}}{{spellcritdamage=[[1d6]] Addt'l Dmg}}
