Zipper Initiative

An Add-on Module for Foundry Virtual Tabletop

Author: caewok Project Source: Project URL Versions 12+ (Verified 12.324) Last Updated 2 months ago

This module uses the zipper initiative as described by @Taking20 in YouTube.

Under zipper initiative, PCs and NPCs are sorted alternating in the initiative order. One (mostly aesthetic) change from @Taking20 is that an NPC will be given initiative equal to the PC that it goes after, instead of one less initiative value. This is primarily to better resolve ties without losing the alternating order, as well as to more easily resolve initiative that uses Dexterity to break ties.


NPC leader

The module will use the following rules to select the NPC leader:

  1. If a single NPC rolled manually, it is assumed to be the leader.
  2. If multiple NPCs rolled manually, the one with the highest bonus will be the leader. (Note that in this scenario, the leader might not have the highest initiative roll.)
  3. If no NPCs rolled, the NPC with the highest bonus will be chosen.
  4. If bonus cannot be determined, the NPC will be selected at random from the relevant group.

See the Github page for more details.
