I noticed there are some things missing from the FW during the last week or two:
1. Miss chance macros. I've added 20% and 50% miss chance macros to my PC tokens in the mean time. Perhaps there should be a checkbox or dropdown list for this on the Attack dialog? It could remain sticky for future attacks as well.
2. Similarly there's no SR roll macro. But Wrath has added that to his spell manager so maybe this one doesn't matter...?
3. It would be nice if the Timer macros (Next/SetupTimer) were on the campaign panel since they'd be much easier to use.
4. When a player sets up a Timer, it should be added to the init in the right location, i.e. just above the creature whose turn it currently is. Or maybe allow the creature to chosen from the dropdown list because often I will cast a spell and then add the Timer while the GM moves on to the next PC/NPC in the initiative. Not sure if macros can do this though?!
5. Timer's Next macro should probably use [g: ] so that the output goes only to the owner and the GM.
6. It would be nice if the Timer could be tied to ActiveMods instead of States. Which leads us to the next one...
7. More modsets are needed.
In particular, stat-boosting/damaging is easier using TempMods when we should have "items" that apply a certain amount of damage. Perhaps using a prompt system similar to the Bard Inspire Courage
that's on the Spells tab. (Which reminds me: why do we have Inspire Courage on the Bard tab when it doesn't work? It doesn't prompt for the bard's level...)
8. The Advanced template got part way through and failed when I tried to run it as a player (the tECL
variable had "Level" in it, which means that it needs an Wiki: eval()
) but the token's stats were already updated so running it again doubled the stats for the monster I was summoning.
All such macros should store the changes into temp variables and then apply them all at once at the end. I'll have to review my Add Fiendish Template
macro to make sure I'm doing it properly myself! Using Wiki: varsFromStrProp()
looks like the way to go...
