Features

  • Fix the formula for initiative to use the Daring attribute, as stated in Star Trek Adventures core rules, rather than Security discipline.
  • Automatically start combat when initializing an encounter.
  • Automatically "roll" initiatives and reset activation whenever a character joins the encounter.
  • Hide chat messages and notification spam from "rolling" initiatives in the background.
  • If the combatant token is hidden to players based on its token settings:
    • Hide combatant names from players in CombatTracker as well as ChatLog. Combatants show as "Unknown Combatant" (or your localized equivalent). Always visible for GM.
    • Hide target value of dice rolls in ChatLog, to not reveal stats to players. Always visible for GM.
  • Hide combatant initiative of neutral and enemy characters from players in CombatTracker. Always visible for GM. Players only see the turn-order, not actual values.
  • Hide initiatives roll buttons for GM, as they aren't needed anymore.
  • Features inherited from Lancer Initiative:
    • Sort combatants by friendly/neutral/enemy, then by initiative.
    • Support for combatants that have multiple turns per round. E.g. for NPC ship crews or when given by special talents. GM can right-click combatants in the list and hit "Add Activation".
