maptool FoW

Post by nevarim »

Sorry if i make a noob couple of questions:

is there a ready framework for roll dice? i search it but nothing to do :(

second, is there a way to make that every player see only that there is in his own aura?
i'll go to explain better: if there are 2 players in the dungeon and player A is not in same room pf player B player A cannot see where is the B and reverse

thankks for helping me :D

best regards
Neva

1. Rolling specific dice for you campaign can be put in to a macro. Whether in a macro or in the chat window you can type [r: 3d6] to have it show the result of rolling 3 d6 dice. There a couple of ways to show the individual rolls, the easiest is to remove the r:, ie [3d6] but depending on the rest of the macro this may not be the neatest method. You can find more dice expressions here: http://lmwcs.com/rptools/wiki/Dice_Expressions

2. When starting a server there are options to share or have individual views of the map.

i have another question: is there a way to limit visibility to wall?

'll go to explain better:

here the dragon in center left see automatically rooms upper to him instead to see only straight to him

and second the player A (dragon center left) see also what the player B is making, is there a way to prevent this?

settings are these




thanks

Looks like you're not using VBL (vision blocking layer). It's the eye symbol at top and you draw the walls so tokens can't see through it.
