D&D 5th Edition by Roll20 (Q1Y2020)

My problem right now is that I don't know how to get a character sheet.

Character sheets only exist inside a game.  You need to join a game, or create one of your own.  When a game is created there is a place to choose the character sheet from a drop down list, or it can be chosen from the game settings after the game has been created.

There is a bug with spell slots on the latest version of the sheet, in regards to multiclassed characters. I had a Lore Bard 8/Arcane Trickster 7 with the correctly calculated slots of 4-3-3-3-2 After adding a level of Arcane Trickster through Charactermancer, my slots became 4-3-3-2-0 To verify (and reproduce you can follow these steps, all using Charactermancer: Create a level 1 Bard. Save. Use Level Up to level the bard to 8th level. Save. Use Level Up to add 8 levels of Rogue:Arcane Trickster. Save. Level progression is incorrect as per the screen shot below. As a stopgap measure, I have added slot modifiers on the settings page, so at least the sheet is playable. However, this is a pretty basic calculation that affects many characters. I have only tested this on Chrome, but have duplicated on Mac and Chromebook.

Tell me your secret of great one, I carve for this information so much

Not sure. I just followed the steps I laid out, and since ti was a test character, randomly clicked whatever spells were available. I didn't really look at what they were. Are there spells there unavailable to a trickster (keep in mind Mage Hand is a hard wired choice).

NPC sheet gives crit damage on non-crit ...in specific circumstances. From this thread . To reproduce: Create NPC monster (I used Animated Armor, but the referenced thread demonstrates with other monsters. Use the following settings: Toggle Disadvantage Don't auto roll damage Don't whisper results Every once in a while, without rolling a crit, the damage link in the roll template will send: %{-M2YjLKi13AubCdNNO9u|repeating_npcaction_-M2YjLu69OA8BRUluvv-_npc_crit} instead of: %{-M2YjLKi13AubCdNNO9u|repeating_npcaction_-M2YjLu69OA8BRUluvv-_npc_dmg} In the screen shot below, I am repeatedly hitting the "damage" button on the roll template to verify. To hit rolls are highlighted to show that neither is a critical hit. Please view referenced thread for multiple other screen shots.
Rogues levelled up through the Charactermancer aren't getting Evasion at 7th level. I have tested with both pure-class and multiclass rogues. Replication steps are as follows: Create a level 1 character using the Charactermancer and save them. If this character is a rogue, use the Level+ Charactermancer to increase their level to 7. Otherwise, use the Level+ Charactermancer to multiclass them to rogue, adding 7 levels. Check the Class Features list to see if it includes Evasion.
I'm getting a weird visual quirk where the Wisdom 'box' doesn't show up. Nothing gamebreaking, but it is a little distracting.
Is there a way to see / edit the code for the 5e sheet? I can't find it on github...

Is there a list somewhere of all the attributes in repeating sections? Especially interested in the attributes for the Attack toggle and ability drop-down

That's perfect, thank you!

I've just created my character in Roll20 for an ongoing 5e game that has moved from in-person to virtual for the time being (for obvious reasons). I didn't use the Charactermancer since I'm using a homebrew race and subclass of Ranger. Most things are working fine - ability checks, spells, saves - but when I click on my weapons it shows the attack rolls (always 2, so I guess you take the first if normal, and the highest/lowest if adv/disadv) but no damage. I've got the damage part checked off, and put in the 1d6, 1d10, etc, depending on the weapon, and put "piercing" but although it shows up fine in my "Attacks" box, when I click on it to attack I only get the attack roll and no damage roll.&nbsp; Am I doing something wrong, or is this a part of the sheet that doesn't work properly? We used Roll20 years ago and I remember it used to give the weapon damage just fine under those old sheets.&nbsp;

Hi Heather, and welcome back! If it's just doing something like this clicking the word Scimitar (or whatever weapon name it shows) should roll the damage. Check this part of your sheet's settings If you want the damage to automatically show, change the setting for Auto Damage Roll here. You can also change how you want to determine Advantage/Disadvantage with the Roll Queries setting.
Is the Charactermancer down? A friend and I can't seem to get it to launch when clicking it

The sheet has change a LOT since the last time I played D&amp;D on Roll20. I had made the assumption that everything under the NPC checkbox only applied if the character was an NPC, so I didn't even read that section too carefully. I've now got my sheet set up to toggle adv/disadv, and to always roll damage.&nbsp; Cheers!&nbsp;
Nice job ! It we be usefull for my table.

Is there a way to display the target of an attack or spell?&nbsp; I like to hold my players accountable to their chosen target.&nbsp; I know how to use @target, but I can't get it to display in the chat.

Hi... haven't set up a game yet, but it looks like my face to face DnD group will be moving to Roll20.. as DM am i able to set up their character sheets from the info i have.. or is it a case of them joining Roll20 and then setting up their character sheets themselves? Silly question i'm sure, but i'm a Roll20 noob..

So when trying to use the Charactermancer I only have "custom" available for Ability Score assignments and the only background is "Acolyte." Am I doing something wrong?

If you don't own the PHB or other supplements, it doesn't sound like anything is wrong. The free 5e content is limited to what exists in the SRD or the Basic Rules.

For some reason, spells don't output as attacks for me any more. Even when the spell is set to output an attack, it only spits out the spellcard. If it's selected _as_ an attack then it's fine, but there are no rolls if the player clicks it from their spellbook. Is this an intentional change or is something buggy?

Also had this happen if you switch it a spell card than back to attack it works fine.

That is really strange.&nbsp; In a quick test for me, the drop down exists, but that is only using SRD content.&nbsp; Maybe the combination of books you own is related to the missing domain choice?

I can't reference abilities in the Featues and Traits section on the Core page. Things like&nbsp;@{wisdom} don't work. Is this intentional?

I was able to get it to show by quitting the charactermancer and restarting again from scratch. Not sure what happened. Chad said: Same happening for Warlock. Drop-down for Otherworldly Patron is not showing up.
When creating a Warlock, (using the Tales of Old Margreve), I was able to select The Old Wood patron, but the Nature's Armor Eldritch Invocation isn't showing up as an option for me to choose.

Question about Repeating Trait Update So the update to traits has broken macros for some users. For anyone who cannot understand why some macros are now reporting missing attributes, this used to work on new compendium drops: @{selected|repeating_npctrait_$0_desc} but now it needs to be this: @{selected|repeating_npctrait_$0_description} Either one apparently works on existing NPCs, but people who have built macros that work on the previous method must now re-write to account for future characters. Can a dev speak as to why&nbsp; the name of the existing attribute was changed?
When using charactermancer today, no classes show up in the drop down list. I have purchased the PHB. Any Help?
I am getting this strange text error on all my character sheets.&nbsp;

MaxKalibur, I am trying to reproduce your problem without success. I would really appreciate if you could give me a few insights on your setup: - What is your Operational System? - What Browser are you using. How about the version? - Does it happen when creating a blank sheet, opening an existing sheet or both? - If the problem happens when creating a blank sheet, does using Charmancer vs Manual input makes any difference? - Does it affect only a specific kind of character, like spellcasters, or all of your characters?
Evening, I created a game to create a character to then export to another game. The game I created has no drop-down menu with character sheets. Do I need to import a sheet on my own?
