Code: TokenLock
Dependencies: IsGM

TokenLock allows the GM to selectively prevent players from moving their tokens, by resetting any token movement made by player.

Determination of player tokens is based on whether that token has an entry in the controlled by-field of either the token or the character it represents(this is due to change:graphic-events to not specify who changed the graphic).

If controlled by is empty, the GM can freely move the token at any point. If there is any entry in controlled by, the token can only be moved when TokenLock is unlocked.



When a token is "locked", a player can still drag their tokens on the map or use the arrow keys, but TokenLock will reset them to the previous position.. So if Explorer Mode is active, players are still able to accidentally reveal more of the map, even if TokenLock is activated.

Moving of player-controlled Cards is still permissible.

Suggestion: Using UDLWindows(Forum), you could create circles or boxes of DL walls that could block token movement completely, without blocking their vision. Copying these circles, lines or boxes you could then place then on the tokens so they actually can't move.


!tl Executing the command with no arguments prints this help.
The following arguments may be supplied in order to change the configuration. All changes are persisted between script restarts.

    • unlock -- Unlocks the player tokens allowing them to be moved.
!tl-config [<Options>|--help] Swaps the selected Tokens for their counterparts on the other layer.
--help -- Shows the Help screen.
--toggle-allowmoveonturn -- Sets whether tokens can be moved if they are at the top of the turn order.
