I wanted a way to play D&D online, I tried some VTTs and I liked MapTool the most, but I missed tools from other VTTs and tried to emulate them on MapTools and the existing Frameworks were a bit confusing for me. And since I am very familiar with pen and paper RPGs but not very familiar with virtual tools, I tried to make it look and feel more like the physical thing, with visuals and dice rolls...
This new version of my framework contains a MapTool 1.6 campaign file with 3 maps that are required to work properly (and shouldn't have their names changed).
A DM Screen map for the Library Tokens, a Character map for character creation and to keep the PC tokens and a Handouts map for images shared with players.
This is a complete rework, it has less content than the old versions, but it's design is more consistent, it supports Markdown mostly everywhere, its loads a little bit faster and it's easier to modify, so with time I will add more content and others can export content to each other.
It contains a a little more than a couple monsters, items and features, all SRD classes, races and background, and a notebook with instructions covering how to use the framework.

2.0 overview: https://youtu.be/5Tjg3HXnZpo
A DM Screen map for the Library Tokens, A Bestiary map for the monsters used on the adventure, a Handouts map for images shared with players, and a Character map for character creation and to keep the PC tokens
There is also a Compendium Folder with Monsters from the Monster Manual, Races, Classes etc, as well as a copy of every Lib: Token just to be sure, it also contains global macros (meant for GMs)
It also includes a sample adventure to show some of the features. It's just an example, it has no balance, the story makes no sense and there is no pace. But in the future I may adapt Lost Mines of Phandelver.
Also some rolls on the chat window, all those 6 are just luck. Clicking on [+crit] will take the result and roll the dice again.
