[Call of Cthulhu] Call of Cthulhu 7th edition Framework V4

Post by Merudo »

Note: This framework is a modified version of @booga's CoC 6th edition framework.

Here is a Call of Cthulhu Framework, based on the 7th editions of the Chaosium rules.

Current Version: 4.0.7 (Requires MapTool 1.6.1)
Updated: 5/27/2020
URL: https://mega.nz/file/LMAzxAIY#Cm0jLlPkK ... 1jjevpwdVo
Themes by Lazarius

Installation in A New Campaign: Open the .cmpgn file through the File -> Open Campaign menu of MapTool. Feel free to add more maps and tokens.

Installation in Existing Campaign:
Spoiler
The following elements should be imported in the existing campaign:

Maps:
- GM Map: contains the core token Lib:coc, as well as Lib:date (date system), Lib:lgm (whispers), and Lib:Handouts (handouts).
- GM Monster Vault: contains monsters to import with the "Monsters !" macro.
- GM Parking Garage: contains vehicle to import with the "Vehicles" macro.
- Pre-Generated PCs and NPCs: contains characters you can use for your campaign.

Campaign Properties:
- Token Properties: all required, many properties are automatically calculated through the default properties
- Sight: BombVision required for explosives to work
- States: Most are required but the images can be changed

Macros
- The Campaign and GM macros are needed to activate most of the features of the framework. You can delete the macros of features you don't like.

Tables
- FdP: core images for the character sheets
- Handout Icons and Handout Styles: for the Handouts framework
- Bout of Madness: for convenience, not explicitly used by the framework
- Rules: convenience, to display the rule tables

Example of campaign using the framework: Uncle Timothy's Will

Character Sheet Features:

- Detailed character sheets similar to Chaosium's own sheets. Clicking on a skill, weapon, or attribute triggers a skill roll and displays the level of success (Normal, Hard or Extreme).
- Secondary attributes Build, Damage Bonus & Move Rate are automatically computed based on CoC7 rules.
- Each roll includes a secure tooltip to validate rolls
- Option to roll with bonus or penalty dice
- Players can click the top of their character sheet to switch between Public & Private mode. In Private mode, a character's rolls are only known to the player and the GM.
- Sanity/Wound tracking system (optional): can keep detailed notes regarding the loss of sanity & wounds of a character.
- Indefinite insanity system (optional): if a character loses more than 1/5 of their total sanity in a day, triggers an alarm telling the GM & player that the character is indefinitely insane.
- Sanity roll macro: you can automate sanity rolls for multiple characters through the "Selected Sanity Roll" macro.
- All skills/weapons from the rulebook are supported, and can be added to a character's sheet in a few clicks. Additional skills/weapons can be easily created, or imported from an excel sheet.
- After being successfully used, the player using the skill can tick it for development.
- A few spells are programmed in, and more can be added through the interface. Spells can be cast with a click, which automatically calculates the cost in MP, POW and Sanity, and provides a prompt to accept the loss.

Combat System Features:

- Combat System: clicking on a weapon's name in a character sheet will trigger the combat system. The attacker can select the target, and click to add Bonus & Penalty dice.
- Default values for check boxes are calculated intelligently depending on the target's build, distance, and states.
- If a weapon has multiple fire mode (such as Single Shot, Semi Automatic (2), Burst and Full Auto), you can select the one you wish to use.
- All hit dice & damage dice are automatically calculated.
- At the end the owner of the character is given a prompt to accept the damage. Clicking the prompt will update the character's HP, and possible roll to avoid a Major Wound.
- You can instead make combat rolls manually by click on a weapon's % hit rate in the character's sheet.

Explosives Features:

- Explosives are weapons with a radius that is number greater than zero.
- To spawn the explosive, click on its name on the character sheet. The explosive is owned by the character spawning it.
- Once spawn, move the token into position where you'd like it to explode.
- The character sheet will display the bomb's targets as well as the difficulty of the roll. Targets not in the line of sight of the explosives (such as behind cover) won't be damaged.
- Click "Detonate" to make the bomb explode and inflict damage on the targets.

ImageImage

Chase System Features:

- The GM can now run the "Initiate Chase" to start a chase. The GM picks who is fleeing and who is chasing.
- The macro automatically does the CON rolls and calculates the Movement Actions of everyone in the chase, and set those values in the Initiative window.
- Option for GM to teleport all players and selected tokens to the Chase Tracker. Characters are placed according to the rules.
- Obstacles are not automated. There are a few images of obstacles in the Chase Tracker map - these are intended to be dragged between locations as visual aid only.

Calendar Features:

- Set the in-game world date with the Set Date macro.
- To elapse days, use the "Next Day" macro.
- Characters automatically recover HP, MP, and their Sanity Thresholds are reset, and characters with a Major Wound get a prompt every 7 days to roll for CON to recover.

Additional Macros and Systems:

- Combined Challenges: to have multiple characters attempt a Strength or Size challenge.
- Selected Damage: Can quickly inflict damage on characters, and checks for Major Wound.
- Group Roll: to quickly do group Idea and group Luck rolls.
- Heal macros: can be used to quickly heal up a character, and to remove Major Wounds if HP reaches half of maximum HP.
- Age macro: Can age characters, changing APP & EDU if need be, and providing prompts to change STR/SIZ/DEX/CON. Not currently linked to the calendar macros.
- Rule tables: display rules for Combat, Damage, Firearms and Chases.
- Selected Sanity Rest: To reset the Sanity Threshold if the party finds a place of safety within a day. The "Next Day" macro can be used if a full day passed.
- Development Phase: can do Skill improvement rolls, Luck improvement roll, as well as updating finances and Credit Rating.

If the characters are able to rest in a safe place, the GM (or player) can use the campaign macro "Selected Rest", which will reset the indefinite insanity threshold for the selected PCs & NPCs. The threshold is equals to 4/5 of the sanity of a character. If the sanity of a character reaches or goes below the threshold, a warning is sent to the owner of the token & the GM telling them the character is indefinitely insane. Check page 156 of the Keeper's guide for the rules.

Nice work Merudo! I tested for a bit and couldn't find any bug so far.

I'd suggest to add interface for the skill rolls (including attack rolls from the Weapons section): to add whether bonus or penalty dice are taken into account, and if the difficulty of the roll should be Hard or Extreme. That should cover most needs.

Thanks!

I've released version 1.1, with these changes:

- There is now an option at the top of the character sheet that allows the player to choose if they want to roll with bonus or penalty dice.
- I've corrected a bug if the sanity / wound frames were displayed & the GM clicked on a creature.
- I've translated "folies" to "disorders" in the code.
- I've added back the calculation for the Major Would Threshold.

I like the addition of the sheet's parameter, but I think it'd be preferable to also have a popup just before each roll, with radio buttons for 2 Penalty dice, 1 penalty dice, etc... (5 choices total, and you could have the pre-picked option be the one that is already selected on the CS that you just added). That would also allow the player/GM to select the general difficulty (Normal, Hard, Extreme).

Also, when you roll Penalty/Bonus dice, only the dice for the tens is rolled more then once, so all the rolls should have the same unit: 58, 28, 98 for example.

I really dislike popups, so I probably won't implement this.

There is not much point in selecting the difficulty either - the GM can just state what difficulty is needed when rolling. The output shows clearly what type of success is achieved.

Almost forgot: since you used the French themed Character sheet, please also give credit to Lazarius (he designed the layout and did all the nice graphics). Thanks!

I did a bit of testing on the combat interface, and noticed that the new Bonus/Penalty dice mechanics worked very well!

A couple things that do not seem to work though:
-- the ammo count does not seem to update after a firearm attack (I think it used to work in my version)
-- the target's HPs do not update after the GM click the extra comment in the chat to update the HPs
-- the calculation of the damage in case of extreme success may be off (maybe it's still calculated based on 6th edition math, I don't have my books with me right now to check).

Great work!

Thank you for your comments!

I forgot to program the ammo count decrease after using a weapon. I'll make sure to include it in the new version.

The target HP's do update automatically for me when clicking the comment in the chat. When you click the link do you get a confirmation message ("Creature took 5 damage") or do you get nothing?

I believe the damage calculations are correct. For impale weapons, the damage is Max Damage + Weapon Damage Roll, while for non-impale weapons the damage is simply the Max Damage. If the target has any armor, the damage is decreased automatically.

EDIT: I did more testing with the HP damage macro, I think the issue is that the page isn't refreshed properly when damage is done to a token. In other words the HP is decreased, but is not displayed right. I'll fix that too.

EDIT2:

Update 2.3 (7/01/2019)

- Fixed bug where the character sheet would not refresh correctly after an attack
- Fixed bug where the outcome of an attack wouldn't be displayed correctly to the chatbox

a) if i copy characters the stats seem to freeze, skills cant be used etc.
I'm not sure how to replicate this. I copy pasted tokens and I never had an issue. Could you provide a little more details on how you copied characters?

b) The Movement "Calc" on characters dosnt work / refreshes.
It's not supposed to work for monsters. For characters, their value should be set to

Code: Select all

[macro("[email protected]:gm"):""][r: macro.return]
in the token property for "Deplacement".

c) monsters seem to not work at all for me..if i create a new one i cant enter spells, stats dont update...and all sorts of stuff.

It is working for me through the Monsters! macro & by copy pasting existing monsters & editing them.

Could you provide a little bit of details on how do you created the monsters?

EDIT: If you upload your project somewhere, I'd be happy to check out what's the issue.

Sure will, gonna set up the New Version copy my maps and tokens over and then Replicate it and make a step by step, log what happens with the new Version.

one thing i do wonder is how to set up the Light effects. what "scale" are they Made for? since it seems...the Lighting is...rly rly small for most light sources. I know that is only partially your Framework but..it got us into a problem yesterday when we ran an adventure and realized the flashlight wouldnt even illuminate 1 train comaprtment.
(Playing Blood on the Tracks :D)

probably obviosu that im just getting used to maptool. hope you all be patient with me im trying to learn!

- New explosives system! You can now specify a radius of explosion for weapons. When clicked, these weapons will spawn a bomb token. Move the token where you want to use the explosive, press "Detonate" on the bomb's sheet, and prepare for massive damage!
