Package Description

This module adds options to play DnD 5e on FoundryVTT using the metric system.


  • Adds "meters" and "kilometers" as options for Range and Target units on items, features and spells. Also adds "meters" and "kilometers" as options to define actor Movement/Speeds.
  • New scenes are automatically set with measurements in the metric system (each square in the grid represents 1.5m)
  • New actors are automatically set with movement speed equal to 9m and dim sight of 9m.
  • Players with GM ou Assistant GM roles have access to a measurement converter at the top of any actor sheet. This converter is capable of converting values and units of items, features and spells of an actor. (If your sheet's title bar is crowded, you can disable the converter button in the module settings)
  • Changes the label "lbs." to "kgs" and adjusts the encumbrance calculation of actors to the metric system, using kilograms. (Disabled by default. Must be enabled in the module settings. Also enables a weight converter in the same way as the measurement converter)


Updated to work with version 0.7.9 of FoundryVTT and with version 1.24 of the 5th Edition System.


The module is available in the Add-on Modules list to install with the name Metric System for D&D5e.
