Package Description

DFreds Convenient Effects is a FoundryVTT module that adds easy to use toggleable active effects for common use cases in the DND5e system.


Let Me Sell You This

Do you struggle to remember what all those conditions and spells actually do to players and NPCs? Or how they interact? Consider this. Your player just rolled, but you forgot that they were invisible and should have rolled with advantage. But wait a minute, the enemy is also invisible! So now it cancels out. "Oh drats," you think to yourself to further prove this crazy point, "the player also has Bless cast on them! Has that expired yet??"

Sure, you could figure all that out... if you wanna be lame. Or you could be cool and just use this module.


What This Module Does

This module helps with the types of issues described above by providing dozens of pre-configured effects for conditions and spells that can all be applied quickly and easily.

You can configure some stuff:



How to Use

On the controls on the left, two new buttons have been added to the Token Controls. One opens the Convenient Effects application and the other deletes any convenient effects currently applied to the selected token. To apply a new effect, open the application and select the tokens you want to apply to apply an effect to, and then click the effect you want to apply. This will toggle it on or off for the selected tokens. If any tokens are targeted, the effect will be applied to them instead.


Required Modules

  • libWrapper by ruipin - A library that wraps core Foundry methods to make it easier for modules developers to do their thang. Note that if you for some reason don't want to install this, a shim will be used instead. You'll be pestered to install it though so... just do it
  • socketlib by Stäbchenfisch - A library that makes it easy to do difficult things with sockets

Modules That Help
