Heya. My players were interested in a nice way to track threat and momentum in STA. I made this script. The chat report is pretty ugly, maybe someone who knows templates would clean it up. Actually, I know a tiny bit, maybe I can make it nicer.. Perhaps in an edit.&nbsp; edit: nvm, I don't know how to send the value in a template from the api script, or how to call the value from a template macro from the game. Leaving it as ugly. edit again: ok, I made it slightly less ugly. I'm using the default template, because the lcars template from the character sheet adds "successes" no matter what, as far as I can tell. Anyways, as the comment at the top of the script says, you'll need a few macros, and a character sheet. Hope this is useful to someone. Here's the Gist: <a href="https://gist.github.com/Bastlifa/291d456123179b335" rel="nofollow">https://gist.github.com/Bastlifa/291d456123179b335</a>... Edit: I edited the gist to add a check before anything else that it's an API message. I didn't remove the redundant checks yet. Edit: removed redundant api check.

That's a great first script! &nbsp;I can help you with getting the formatting working, if you're interested.

Yeah, that would be a lot better, if I could get it working in the LCARS template, rather than default. I'll say something on gitter.

After playing around with inspect element to find the html for the lcars template, I was able to update it to output a bit better.

Yeah, thanks for the idea. I actually referenced your tokenmod script to see how to put html into the api script. Edit: Aaron simplified the code, reads easier, less copy/paste. I updated the gist to that.
