The following three macros take advantage of a new [[roll query]] feature available on both the live and dev servers. The roll query will pop up a window and ask for a description of the attack. This can be left blank. Then it will ask for any additional modifiers to the attack roll. Finally, it will ask for your damage roll. Just enter this in like you would as if you were typing /roll XdY+Z in the chat window. The use of roll queries make these macros most useful for Dungeon Masters™, but any player can find use for them as a starting point for their own macros as described in the next section.

These macros are for use with tokens that are linked to a journal entry. They make use of the attributes as shown above (ATK Bonus, STR Mod, et al). They will not work unless the token is linked to a character sheet / journal entry and has those attributes on that journal entry. One way to save time is to create a blank journal entry, add the attributes, and save it. Then you can duplicate that sheet any time you need to add a new monster. The macro below does two unmodified attack rolls, asks for any miscellaneous modifiers, and then asks for the damage roll. If the attack is at an advantage, take the highest of the two rolls. If it's at a disadvantage, take the lowest of the two rolls. If it is neither at an advantage or disadvantage, take the first roll.

[edit] Introduction

D&D Next is the fifth edition of the popular Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game series, currently produced and published by Wizards of the Coast. With less reliance on a variety of modifiers and conditions in D&D Next, Roll20 can easily accommodate both Theater of the Mind and Tactical Combat gaming styles.

[edit] Attributes, Abilities, & Macros

[edit] Attributes

Attributes are a variable that can be added to a journal entry. Each attribute has a name, a current value, and an optional maximum value. Any players that you give permission to control or edit the journal will also be able to edit the attributes. Attributes can be used as variables in both Macros and Abilities. In D&D Next, a common set of attributes for monster character sheets would be the following:

  • HP
  • ATK Bonus
  • STR Mod
  • DEX Mod
  • CON Mod
  • INT Mod
  • WIS Mod
  • CHA Mod


Attribute modifications are labeled as follows in the 5e character sheet:

  • strength_mod
  • dexterity_mod
  • constitution_mod
  • intelligence_mod
  • wisdom_mod
  • charisma_mod

[edit] Abilities & Macros

Abilities are journal specific macros and hereafter will be referred to as macros. Macros are a pre-written command or set of commands using any of the same commands you can use in the chat window.

[edit] Generic Attack Macros

The following three macros take advantage of a new roll query feature available on both the live and dev servers. The roll query will pop up a window and ask for a description of the attack. This can be left blank. Then it will ask for any additional modifiers to the attack roll. Finally, it will ask for your damage roll. Just enter this in like you would as if you were typing /roll XdY+Z in the chat window. The use of roll queries make these macros most useful for Dungeon Masters™, but any player can find use for them as a starting point for their own macros as described in the next section.

Attack (Disadvantage)

/em ?{Description}
Attack w/Disadvantage
[[{2d20KL1}+?{Modifiers|0}]] to hit
[[?{Damage Roll}]] damage

Attack (Standard)

/em ?{Description}
[[1d20+?{Modifiers|0}]] to hit
[[?{Damage Roll}]] damage

Attack (Advantage)

/em ?{Description}
Attack w/Advantage
[[{2d20KH1}+?{Modifiers|0}]] to hit
[[?{Damage Roll}]] damage

[edit] Generic Macros Using @{selected|}

These macros are for use with tokens that are linked to a journal entry. They make use of the attributes as shown above (ATK Bonus, STR Mod, et al). They will not work unless the token is linked to a character sheet / journal entry and has those attributes on that journal entry. One way to save time is to create a blank journal entry, add the attributes, and save it. Then you can duplicate that sheet any time you need to add a new monster. The macro below does two unmodified attack rolls, asks for any miscellaneous modifiers, and then asks for the damage roll. If the attack is at an advantage, take the highest of the two rolls. If it's at a disadvantage, take the lowest of the two rolls. If it is neither at an advantage or disadvantage, take the first roll.

[edit] Character Sheets

Character Sheets are a new feature in Roll20 which allow you to use a digital sheet that's similar to a traditional paper character sheet while playing your game. The creator of a game can choose a character sheet template when setting up the game, and all characters in the game will use that sheet template. Use the guides below for specific versions of available character sheets.
