Macros/Call of Cthulhu Examples

From Roll20 Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

This is a guide for creating general CoC macros, not tide to any specific edition. See Call of Cthulhu for more Proll20-related info on CoC.


About Macros

First, there are two places where you can put your macros, in Collection > Macros and in Journal > Character sheet > Attributes & Abilities > Abilities.
The difference between these two is that the first one is for your macros as a player and the second one is intended to keep your specific character's macros. You can save your macros in both, but the first one will need your character's name @{name|skill}, while with the second one you will only need @{skill}.
