In total their are 4 different skills i need to add. all of them are intelligence based so because of this I simply edited the html and translation to change arcana and religion to their respective 'new' skills, and i figured out how to reorganize them to maintain the sheet as an alphabetical list from top to bottom. The issue that I've encountered is that when trying to add in an additional skill into the html as a new item (shadow-lore) but i cant actually get the skill to display in the skill list. I'm not proficient enough in html editing to see what im missing but at request i can provide the html code i'm using to figure this out. Essentially, how do I go about introducing an entirely new skill to add to the base amount shown from 18 -> 20 Edit: I've been able to get the html to display the skill in the advanced options though not on the main page of the sheet at this point. Editing my Translation accordingly Also I apologize if this isnt the forum to be asking this but it's the only one I saw that made any sense You could do it without modifying the CSS by making a "tool" based on intelligence. Has the same roll as a skill and you can be proficient or not in it.

That was what I intended to do if i couldn't figure out how to add on the additional skills in this situation. If possible I'd like to try and find a solution to add it in the skills section (OCD is painful sometimes). Figured that I'd see if someone else may have encountered this issue already and had a solution for the edits already
There is a 'Crit' field under both 'Damage' fields within Attacks & Spellcasting entries. For more information, please see: Attacks & Spellcasting For some reason I thought max damage+die roll was RAW. I understand this to be a houserule popularized by Chris Perkins. Great.  Thank you.

Under the skill_bonus value= you'll want to change the base attribute it uses to fit the new skill. Under the skill_options div you'll want to give the "row skill" div the same treatment, copying it and replacing it with your new skill's name. Under the <!HIDDEN FIELDS> section you'll need to copy and paste the proficiency formula for your new skill
Alright cool that makes sense, looking back over it, thank you for your quick reply @Steve K.!!
There are some very long spell descriptions that could be summarized with a to-lazy-didnt-read (TLDR) version. Can we get the spell descriptions pulled from the SRD to first display a TLDR version and a button to show the full description? Examples: Bless: 3 creatures within 30' get +1d4 to attack and save rolls Hail of thorns: first ranged weapon hit explodes with thorns. All creatures within 5' (including original target) take 1d10 piercing damage DEX save for half

Adding summaries to the the Description fields of complex spells (perhaps using formatting for emphasis) might be the most plausible way of implementing this. Alternatively, you could create an Ability macro for each especially lengthy spell description and replace the contents of that spell's Description field with an Ability Command Button plus the summary text.

Alternatively, put the summary text (like Bless's +1d4 to d20 rolls) in the target field, Then your target field output has the basic effect right there.
How do you roll intiative on the npc sheet so it's added to the turn tracker?

I figured out a solution... Step 1, add a spell twice to your spell list (example Bless) Step 2, Modify the first spell description to: (modify $1_spell to $x_spell where x is the index of your second spell) ***TLDR:*** 3 creatures within 30' get +1d4 to attack and save rolls [Full Description](~@{character_name}|repeating_spell-1_$1_spell) Step 3, Remove the "at higher level description" from the first version You can even do this for attack type spells. Step 1: add a spell twice to your spell list Step 2: modify the second version, change OUTPUT from "Attack" to "Spellcard" Step 3: on the "CORE" tab of your charactersheet, modify the attack description for your spell [Full Description](~@{character_name}|repeating_spell-cantrip_$1_spell)

My skill rolls are not adding my proficiency bonus. Instead, they add "Jack of all trades" whether it is toggled on or off.

Is there a way to turn off the NPC action description? I would like players to see the attack roll and damage but not the description. Not display the DC, effects, duration of condition, save results, etc.

You could make a 2nd version that's just for rolling to the players, or do a GM roll instead so only you get the results.

Is it a known issue/bug that the NPC version of this character sheet rolls double damage die when 3d dice are enabled? &nbsp;The actual numbers are correct its just the visuals which are wrong:

The additional 2d6 you're seeing are the critical hit dice.
Why are the 3d Die rolling critical when it wasnt a critical (see the chat window result)?

Michael M. said: Why are the 3d Die rolling critical when it wasnt a critical (see the chat window result)? Because roll20 resolves the result of all submitted rolls (Including any possible crits) before displaying the results.
IC. &nbsp;OK, that explains it, so no way to get rid of it unless damage rolling is turned off. Its a bit confusing for new users/players is there a reason why this cant be split off and rolled only when there is a critical?

Michael M. said: is there a reason why this cant be split off and rolled only when there is a critical? Yes, as Franky H. stated, Roll Templates don't cause inline rolls to occur or not; all Roll Templates can do is prevent inline rolls from displaying in the Text Chat.
IC. &nbsp;Thanks for explaining it.&nbsp;

I'd recommend running through&nbsp; these steps to make sure you've got everything set up correctly. I have gone through those steps exactly. Following&nbsp; Silvyre's advice , I made sure to&nbsp;create a repeating resource box&nbsp;to assign my ammo to, but the ammo never updates when I use the longbow attack, whether damage is rolled or not. Just as a quick checklist,&nbsp; -Companion API script is in my campaign -Ammo Tracking set to 'on' in character sheet -Missile Weapon and Ammo were created by dragging from compendium into blank item slots -Use as resource checked -Tried using linked ammo from all boxes (class resource, other resource, left repeating, right repeating) None updated the resource fields in any way.

Hey, Don't know if this has been asked before, I tried searching and couldn't find it. I am using the new UA Revised Ranger and for my Animal Companion I get to add prof bonus to AC. I tried using the custom AC option and changing the base to 10+@{pb} but it doesn't seem to register. Am I missing something? What is the best way to do this so it auto updates the AC as I level up?

Every post (and wiki page) that I read on the matter said to install the "5e Shaped Companion Script," which I did, despite reading the very legible warning that it would not work for the OGL sheet which I was quite clearly using. As soon as I realized there was a companion script for OGL, I tried that and it worked instantly. Whoops&nbsp;¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I feel the sheet would benefit from - When you un-check an item within the inventory as "equipped" and it grays out, that the items weight is also removed from the total weight. Currently the weight is still added to the total even if you unequip the item from your inventory, the only way to solve this is to remove the quantity but this can cause players to lose track of how many they had when they unchecked the item. So making it so when you unequip the item that it also removes the weight from the total weight without&nbsp;&nbsp;having to remove the quantity would be a lifesaver. This is making tracking items carried and their weight really annoying.

Items listed within the Equipment block are those which are stored on your character's person. "Equipped" items are those which are currently worn or wielded by your character, conferring any bonuses that are gained while those items are equipped (in fact, the Mods section only functions when the "Equipped" box is checked). The Treasure block on the Bio Page is better suited for recording items that are not usually on your character's person. Alternatively, the Simple inventory will not calculate items weights.

Alright I have a player in my game who has advantage on all there initiative checks. However, the character sheet only does Initiative with the single roll and does not do Advantage. I have also looked it up and no combination of the premade macros give me what I need or don't want to work properly because they won't call up the specific attribute I want to call up. Then When I try to have it automatically go over to the turn tracker what I have found always uses the second roll whether it is higher or lower than the first roll. If someone could help me out with this it would be wonderful, Thank you.
