5th Edition OGL by Roll20 v1.6

1471789750

Edited 1471790829
Is there an NPC skills attribute that contains their skill bonuses (the ones listed as "Skills" on the NPC character sheet)? I found @{selected|npc_skillsbase} but it is inconsistent. For example, when I used it with an orc (I had dragged all the info over from the srd listing) it listed the intimidation skill bonus, with a jackalwere it lists the perception and stealth bonuses but not the deception bonus; with the faerie dragon it didn't list any of its skill bonuses (I created both of those from scratch).
The OGL sheet is not perfect by any means. However hopefully the devs will put in all these things that are missing after they iron out all the details with Wizards of the Coast. In the mean time the sheet is better than doing things from scratch which is what i did with my 2nd edition sheets. Plus everybody has there own play style and it is impossible to cater to everybody's needs. Hopefully with yours and others suggestions on stuff that is missing they are looking at these posts and trying to fix stuff like this just understand it may take some time to do so.

Been looking at starting up an old 5e game again, going through my player's sheets and converting to this. Love most of the features. For Monk's unarmoured defence, is the only way to set that up currently to use the Custom AC + dex + wis? Because that seems to break auto-calculation from AC bonuses in the inventory, and I have to change the custom base AC.

Because that seems to break auto-calculation from AC bonuses in the inventory, and I have to change the custom base AC. It's the only way I've found too. It also breaks if you become encumbered (or really anything that affects the AC). It also messes up the auto-update for when you change your attributes. Was tweaking my starting character (monk) and changed around my DEX and WIS scores and suddenly wound up with an AC of 19 rather than the 18 I had had before. Based on the behavior (and without any knowledge of the sheet's html or html in general) it looks like the custom AC option is doing a flat change to the AC so that it becomes 10 + whatever the second attribute selected is which then becomes the new "base" score instead of 10. The work around I've found is that you just toggle the custom AC on off once you've made your changes to the sheet and then it recalc's correctly.

Aquaricat said: Just a couple notes on what is overall a great sheet - - Seems like any time my AC changes for any reason, the Monk/Barbarian tweak breaks, and won't work again until I delete the attributes and reset it from scratch. - My spell casting ability resets to None every time I level up.  (Monk base class, which DOES have a wisdom based spell casting ability, but multiclass fighter & cleric as well). Okay, I'll take a look.

Just as a note on Monk/Barbarian AC, there's another option other than the Custom AC, which is to create a weightless item that represents the AC bonus as a way of having it more integrated in the AC auto-calculations.

While that is a good idea, it's not really any better  that much better than toggling custom ac on/off or redoing the custom AC for any change since you can't link it to the wisdom mod that way, although it might be worth it to allow the mods field to parse things like floor, ceil, and arithmetic; in which case this could easily make the custom AC option obsolete. Also, as I was fooling around in the settings page of the sheet, I noticed the field that says "class options (monk)" in my case. What does this do (doesn't look like it's editable in any way).

I'm very new to this, and trying to understand.  This morning I changed to pro, and added in the companion script.  Spell slot tracker is amazing!  It took me an hour, but I eventually got the longrest command into a macro that works on selected tokens so I don't have to type player names.  (That shows you how much a beginner I am.)   My question is with the ammo tracking.  How do you link a weapon to its ammunition?  I'm attempting to link a longbow to arrows.  I see a ticker in arrows to use as a resource.  That lists it in the resources box.  But I don't find a way to link them to longbow, neither in the inventory longbow window, nor in the attacks longbow window.  I'm sure I am missing something simple, but I just can't find it.

The 5th Edition SRD Compendium only contains what is provided by WotC's SRD5. The SRD5 only provides skill bonuses for a few of each creature's skills. As such, the Compendium only provides Attributes for those skill bonuses.

I've been playing around with the resources repeating sections. Anyone know how to reference the values of the additional rows of resources? The tooltip says @{repeating_resource_left} and @{repeating_resource_right}, but it says that for all the rows. I'm guessing there has to be a $X in there somewhere. Anyone have an idea of where to put it or if it uses a different numbering format?

Name this Attribute charname_output Give this Attribute a Current value of {{name=}} If you have access to the API, you can use a script like ChatSetAttr to easily add this Attribute to all currently existing Characters. This worked great. &nbsp;Thanks so much for your suggestion and help! &nbsp;Both the API script and adding the attribute worked as advertised! :)

The ID of the repeating section is different and unique for each section. For example resource_left would look something like this: @{repeating_resource_-KFe2MtfvUTW1dQrvcps_resource_left} By ID you would reference which repeating section by the index: @{repeating_resource_$0_resource_left}

Hello - I am trying to use !longrest with the updated API and all I'm getting is a message in the sandbox like this: {"name":"HP","current":"90","max":"90","_id":"-JeSBmNodQyJ5PllaIUJ","_type":"attribute","_characterid":"-Je8R1jNfKmZfSnsyrt0"} The actual HP are not updating. Spell slot counts are resetting correctly, but not HP. I can't find any clear instructions about !longrest other than to put the character name in.

I deleted the old attribute and put HP back into the sheet. Now I just need to update the tokens. PS - just renaming the attribute worked. The old versions were "HP" but needed to be "hp". Didn't have to change anything else.

I'll try that out.

Well, that worked perfectly, how would I reference some of the global modifiers on the settings page (like global saving throw modifier). Alternatively, is there a way I could use the item MODS field to apply the +1 saving throw bonus from a cloak of protection?

Or, adding a value to them which will cause them to be added to the bottom of the Attributes and Abilities tab. For example the global save mod is&nbsp;globalsavemod, I.E. @{character_name|globalsavemod} This mod gets adjusted when you add or remove items that give global bonuses. Check out Cloak of Protection as an example.

How do you delete an attack or inventory line? Deleting all the info in them just seems to leave a blank line, and I see no button to delete them. Edit: Never-mind, found the unlock button that lets you delete items. I feel dumb.

I change the name on the NPC charactersheet to @{selected|token_name} and only ever access the actions from a token. The main benefit with this is that if I have two zombies, the players see things like "mutilated corpse" and "shambling undead" and don't immediately know what kind of monster they are facing. Even when it is a more obvious creature, the chat shows Wolf 1 or Wolf 2 rather than just Wolf.

Found a miscalculated field on the sheet (or I'm misunderstanding what it is supposed to be doing). The magic bonus field, which I'm assuming is where you would put the bonus from a +X weapon or +X ammo, only applies to damage. According to the DMG, it should apply to attacks as well. Ignore that, was apparently just not tabbing out of the field before testing it. And on the note of ammo, would it be possible to change that magic bonus field so that it will allow a query in it (for when you have multiple types of ammo)?

I routinely see situations where changes to the character sheet are not reflected in the display until refreshing the browser or even exiting and re-entering the campaign. For instance, I just made a sheet for a named NPC by copying the generic monster sheet and setting the hit points to hard-coded numbers in both the hit point and hit point formula fields. &nbsp;The change is active because I see the number I set written to the chat window when I click on the hit point formula field. &nbsp;But the sheet is not showing that number, it still displays the original formula. This same sort of update problem has happened on both PC and NPC sheets and seems to occur in any field. &nbsp;Is there some way to refresh the sheet without refreshing the browser or exiting the campaign (obviously disruptive options, especially during game play)? &nbsp;Better yet, is this something to already in the queue of things to be fixed?
Is there a simple way of adding temporary bonuses to attack calculations somewhere I cannot see? Trying to add for instance +1d4 or 1d4 or #Bless (macro that does [[1d4]]) to the MOD field of a weapon attack always fails to calculate. I see that there is a global spell attack modifier, why is there no such thing for regular attacks?
Is there a way to add custom multipliers in calculating the maximum carry weight of a character? This is just for traits like a goliath's powerful build trait or a mount's beast of burden trait. Are there plans to give inventory with weight tracking to an mount/npc?

When you click off of an input field, this triggers a blur event which updates the sheet and triggers and sheet workers or logic. Are you saying when you change, lets say, an attribute score from 10 to 12, the attribute modifier just above it doesn't change if you click anywhere else on the sheet?

I didn't go that granular with my first pass of the inventory system. It might come with another pass. For now you could create a new character that's the beast and use their inventory. Or, if fine tracking of inventory and weight isn't a big deal when it comes to beasts of burden just track it on the Bio tab or switch to simple inventory from the settings tab.

If work is still being done on the sheet, a global attack modifier field would be greatly appriciated.

Sorry, what I suggested you'd put in the AMMUNITION field and is only for querying using one type of ammo or another. As for a query to the attack and damage for ammo for weapon, the sheet workers don't handle queries. So, I'd recommend setting them up as seperate attacks, IE Longbow/Arrows vs Longbow/Arrows+1

ok, I think I'll keep it the way I have it which is a query in the description for what ammo to use, and then just add the +1/2/3 to the attack/damage in my head (not exactly hard head math after all). Although, since the ammo part of the template comes after the description in the sheets default roll template output I might move this to the ammo field so that it only prompts me when I make the attack, not when I make the damage roll as well.

Seems like a lot of work for a bonus that will only be active on a single roll some of the time. Bless lasts for a minute, so its essentially for the duration of an encounter. The GetStuff macroes were made in order to be able to read the hovertext of the rolls. Since it then Simply reads as 1d20+x+y+z instead of the full calculation of the STR mod, or proficiency bonus. The #Bless macro was actually required, since otherwise the template would apply critical hit dmg whenever the bless die rolled a 4.

Ah, ok, you could also just add another set of inline roll brackets around them, although if the macro way works, that's cool too. EDIT: hah, gonna have to let my GM know that about Bless (this is my first 5e game). We were doing it as a one time bonus. Should be very helpful for surviving our crazy GM ;).
For spells like thunderwave, where there's a damage roll and some flavour text "Each creature in a 15-foot cube originating from you must make a Constitution saving throw. On a failed save, a creature takes 2d8 thunder damage and is pushed 10 feet away from you.' However I can't see a way of making the flavour text come out whilst also rolling the damage, does the player just have to remember the flavour?

A quick and dirty way (from my limited understanding of the 5e OGL sheet) would be to take the flavour text that is added from the SRD as standard and add it to the damage roll in single square brackets '[]': This will mean that when you cast the spell you will be able to hover over the damage result and read the full flavour as a notation. The spell already summarises the effects if a save is made so you don't need the full text, just the bits that help apply the damage and other effects: Hope that helps as a workaround until more knowledgeable people can come along?

You could also add flavor text to the 'Type' field. e.g. "Thunder within 15' cube".

When you click off of an input field, this triggers a blur event which updates the sheet and triggers and sheet workers or logic. Are you saying when you change, lets say, an attribute score from 10 to 12, the attribute modifier just above it doesn't change if you click anywhere else on the sheet? It seems to happen with any field. &nbsp;I've noticed it most when changing the hit point formula and the change was not reflected on the sheet after hitting the gear to close the edit view. &nbsp;This is usually just a display effect - clicking the formula rolled the correct value, although there have been a few occasions on the PC side where spells and attacks seem to get stuck into an unchangeable state that is only fixed by reloading or exiting the campaign. After more tinkering, it does look like the sheet worker is not keeping up or not getting triggered. &nbsp;After posting the question, I edited a couple of dozen NPC sheets. &nbsp;Before closing the edit view, I tabbed over several fields and made myself wait a couple of seconds. &nbsp;Every time I did that, the edit occurred as expected.

I'm assuming that you are using the attack output for this. This duplicates the spell in your attacks section on the core part of the sheet. You can enter descriptive text in the description field there, and it will display when you click the spell (clicking or calling the spell triggers the attack).

Thunderwave already mentions in the save section you save vs being pushed. If you wanted to add more info, you could use the DESCRIPTION section.
