An Add-on Module for Foundry Virtual Tabletop

Author: tim posney Project Source: Project URL Versions 11.313 - 12.999 (Verified 12) Last Updated 1 week, 3 days ago

Versions 11.3.19+ are marked as compatible with foundry v12. There are certain to be bugs so don't consider dae in v12 as ready for game play.

Versions 11.3+ are compatible with dnd5e verison 3+

Version 11.1.12 of DAE is marked as incompatible with dnd5e v3.0 and above so you will not be able to activate the module if you are on dnd5e v3.0 or above.

DAE is tested on and developed for DND5E. It may work with other systems, but probably not. It does NOT work with PF2E. 

You do not need to use DAE for most of the active effect funcitonality to work. You might choose to use it if you want one or more or of:

DAE adds some features to core Active Effects.

  1. Transfer effects (item linked) are now enabled/disbled by dnd5e without support from DAE
  2. The ability to reference actor data in effect value definitions. i.e. @abilities.dex.mod.
  3. An extended set of custom fields, like all of the traits.
  4. The ability to update derived fields.
  5. A slightly extended active effect editor that provides a list of valid fields, a drop down list of options and drop down lists for restricted fields

Do read the on the gitlab, it has lots of information and some of it might not make you more confused.

DAE is known to work with (and has many customisations for) dnd5e/sw5e. It does NOT work with pf2e and will not load with that system.
Other systems are use at your own risk and the utility of DAE will vary widely.
