Author: jagoe Project Source: Project URL Versions 11 - 11 (Verified 11) Last Updated 1 month, 2 weeks ago

A Foundry VTT module that allows GMs and players to specify journal entries that get opened automatically once combat starts.

 

Features

The module allows you to specify a list of journal entries and a frequency mode for each. It then opens any of those entries according to their frequency whenever a combat starts.

 

Opening the note overview

To open the note overview, navigate to the "Combat Encounters" tab in the sidebar on the right and click on the note icon at the top.

How to open the note overview

Alternatively, you can use the built-in (and configurable) keybinding ALT + J to toggle the overview.

 

Adding journal entries

To add journal entries, drag them from anywhere (the journal tab, the chat, Quick Insert, and so on) onto the drop area.

How to add journal entries

You can add the following note types this way:

This will work for entries that are stored within your world, as well as for entries in a compendium.

 

Removing entries

To remove an entry, click the corresponding trashcan icon in the Actions column of the entry.

How to delete entries

This will remove the journal entry from the combat notes list, but not delete it from Foundry.

 

Setting the frequency

By default, each entry will have a frequency of Always. You can change each entry's frequency by using the dropdown list in its Frequency column. The following frequency modes exist:

 

Specifying N

If you pick Once in the Nth combat or Every Nth combat, an input field will appear in which you can enter the value of N.
Next to the input field you will find a counter that will help you determining how many combats out of the necessary n combats have already occurred.

Specifying a frequency with N

 

Automated display of combat notes

Once you are done setting up your notes, they will now be displayed based on their frequency once combat starts.

Each user has their own list of combat notes that no other user can see or use.
