[[File:SW-TCS tall overview.jpg|thumbnail|500px|right|Savage Worlds (tabbed) Character Sheet, v3]]
The Savage Worlds (Tabbed) Character Sheet was created by [https://app.roll20.net/users/173448/g-v G V] and was designed to help streamline game play of the [https://www.peginc.com/product-category/savage-worlds/ Savage Worlds] system by [http://www.peginc.com/ Pinnacle Entertainment Group]. The Sheet attempts to be more Core Rules focused, but does allow for some customization of rules (such as changing the Wild Die type, or modifying the Bonus Damage for Raises on the attack roll).
+
The '''Savage Worlds Tabbed''' Character Sheet (SW-TCS) tracks Wild Card characters, Extra characters, and vehicles for [https://www.peginc.com/product-category/savage-worlds/ Savage Worlds] by [http://www.peginc.com/ Pinnacle Entertainment Group]. It supports the Core rules for Savage Worlds Deluxe (SWD) and Adventure Edition (SWADE), includes support for many popular settings, and allows for customization. It automatically calculates modifiers due to wounds, fatigue, and encumbrance, and provides buttons for trait, attack, damage, and other rolls.

== Character Sheet ==
+
=== Major Feature Tabs ===
 +
Buttons at the top access the major features of the sheet (called tabs).
  
The Savage Worlds (Tabbed) character sheet includes all the necessary core data for a Savage Worlds character, but leverages the unique capabilities of Roll20.  The sheet '''auto-calculates''', Parry and Toughness and a few other setting specific/game expanding derived stats like Strain (cyberpunk) or Sanity (horror). A tabbed interface combined with optional "show/hide" subsections allow for a more manageable sheet. '''Sheet rolls''' ("built-in" macros) can be rolled directly off the sheet or activated using an ability macro.  All attributes and sheet rolls that can be accessed are easily determined with a quick '''mouse-over'''. 
+
[[File:SW-TCS tabs2.jpg|framed|center|Major Character Sheet Tabs, v3]]
 +
<br clear=all>
 +
* Character Tab--- For Wild Cards and Extras
 +
* Vehicle Tab--- Attributes like Handling, Toughness, Top Speed, Crew
 +
* Quest Log Tab--- Including personal appearance and community property
 +
* Configuration Tab--- Customize skills, edges, rules, and design for a particular setting
 +
* Stat Block--- Not really a tab. Outputs to chat, suitable for pasting into other applications
 +
* Release Notes Tab
 +
* Documentation Tab--- Find help here
  
The sheet includes every skill from the Savage Worlds Deluxe Core ruleset plus a few popular skills such as: Faith, Guts, Rituals, Spellcasting, Psionics, and Weird Science.  All skills except for Fighting are hidden by default allowing the player to select the skills s/he will be using for the character rather than contribute to visual clutter.
+
<br clear=all>
  
The sheet also has an alternate version specifically for Mooks/Allies, allowing for quick input and access to an NPC's stats. Below is a detailed explanation of the various parts of the character sheet.
+
=== Common Buttons ===
 +
These character sheet conventions that apply throughout the character sheet.
  
=== The Header Section ===
+
[[File:SW-TCS show-hide buttons.jpg|framed|left]] '''Show/Shrink Buttons''': Next to the section title, click the Shrink icon to hide the section (or shrink it to a summary). Click the Eye icon to show it again.
 +
<br clear=all>
  
The "header" section of the character sheet contains two buttons:
+
[[File:SW-TCS roll buttons.jpg|framed|left]]
* The Configuration button
+
[[File:SW-TCS repeating roll buttons.jpg|framed|left]]  
* The Switch to Ally/Mook (or Switch to Wild Card) button
+
'''<span style="font-family:dicefontd20;">t</span>Roll Buttons''': Clicking the <span style="font-family:dicefontd20;">t</span>roll button will roll its associated trait, weapon, or power. Roll buttons can be dragged to the Macro quick bar at the bottom of the screen. You can make rolls public or visible only to the GM: Hover the item to reveal the settings (<span style="font-family:Pictos;">y</span>gear) icon, then select Whisper roll to GM.
[[File:SW-Tabbed-Header.png]]
+
  
==== Ally/Mook Sheet ====
+
Here's the general formula for the roll buttons:
 +
  Highest of Rank die + Rank modifier, or Wild die
 +
  + Trait Roll Modifier
 +
  + Trait Test Modifier (or Damage Modifier for damage rolls)
 +
  + Encumbrance Penalty (0 or negative for Agility & Strength-based rolls)
 +
  - Wounds
 +
  - Fatigue
  
[[File:SWT-Mook.png|200px|thumb|right|Savage Worlds Tabbed Character Sheet in Ally/Mook view]]
+
Weapon and Power roll buttons are configurable (click the cog):
The Ally/Mook Sheet has most of the same functionality is the Wild Card sheet, but does not roll a Wild Die on any of the roll buttons.  Additionally, the fields have been streamlined and in most cases have a single Modifier field to encompass all Rank modifiers as well as any modifiers due to special abilities or Edges and Hindrances.
+
  
Throughout the sheet are Hide/Show buttons or Checkboxes.  Clicking (or checking) any of these will hide (or show) the relevant section.
+
* Damage--- Rolls damage when clicked
 +
* Atk + Dmg--- Rolls linked attack skill (like Fighting or Shooting) when clicked. The roll result has a button to roll damage. The linked skill is configurable.
 +
* Atkx + Dmg--- Used for guns with RoF more than 1. Prompts for number of skill dice (max is the RoF) before rolling.
 +
* Cast--- For powers, rolls linked skill like Faith or Spellcasting. The linked skill is configurable.
  
Two fields of particular note are:
+
<br clear=all>
* XP/Rank
+
[[File:Sw-roll-template.png|framed|left]] '''Roll Template''': The standard roll template appears in the chat window to show the results of attribute and skill rolls.
* Wounds
+
* The trait roll (left), is already adjusted for the modifiers shown on the next row.
* Trait Test Modifier
+
* The Wild die (or '''Group/Crit Check''') (right), is always rolled. If it's for an extra that doesn't need the crit check, just ignore it. It's rolled automatically to save time.
* Damage Modifier
+
* Modifiers (2nd row) include Wounds, Fatigue, Encumbrance, and others.
 +
* Roll Damage button (bottom row) is visible if the trait roll was made by clicking on a weapon or power.
  
===== XP/Rank =====
+
<br clear=all>
This field is included in case you use the rule for advancing Mooks as found on page 93 of the Savage Worlds Deluxe: Explorer's Edition Rule Book.
+
[[File:Sw-damage-template.png|framed|left]]'''Damage Roll Template''': The damage template appears in the chat window to show the results of damage rolls.
 +
* The damage roll (left), is already adjusted for modifiers. If there are any (like Wounds), they are shown in the next row
 +
* The bonus damage roll (right), is always rolled. Use it if you got a raise on the attack roll or otherwise need it, or just ignore it.
 +
* Notes are shown if entered in the weapon description
 +
* Modifiers (next row, not shown)
  
===== Wounds =====
 
While the Core Rules dictate that a Mook is either UP or DOWN, many have adopted the house rule for a class of mook called an Ace (or some other snazzy name) that have wound levels, but no wild die.  The Wounds field allows you to keep track of the wounds an Ace has and adjust the rolls automatically to care for that.
 
  
===== Trait Test Modifier =====
 
The Trait Test Modifier field can be used to track any modifiers that may impact the trait test that may vary from round to round.  This would include things like:
 
* Range Modifiers
 
* Lighting Modifiers
 
* Unstable Platform Modifiers
 
* Anything else the GM feels is appropriate
 
  
==== Configuration ====
 
[[File:SWT-Configuration-collapsed.png|center|Savage Worlds Tabbed Character Sheet Configuration Window in its default state with the four different configuration areas collapsed and hidden]]
 
  
The configuration window allows the GM and Player a little more control over various aspects of the character sheet. One can tweak the User Interface slightly by changing the Logo or the Background image.  Additional tweaks include modifying how some of the fields display themselves, and even hiding the Arcanum Tab.
+
<br clear=all>
 +
[[File:SW-TCS repeating items.jpg|framed|left]] '''Repeating Sections''': At the bottom of each repeating section (Skills, Hindrances, Edges, Advancements, Weapons, Powers, Armor), there are buttons to add more items, or delete and rearrange existing items.  
 +
<br clear=all>
  
===== Configuration: UI Tweaks =====
+
=== Character Sheet Import & Export ===

+
There hasn't been a working character sheet import script for a long time. When it worked, it required a paid account. You could paste in a Stat Block, run the script, and it would populate all the Character Sheet fields.
  
<small>'''Backgrounds'''</small>
+
With a paid account, you can move character sheets from one Roll20 game to another. As a GM, if you build a bestiary, this would be a way to re-use your work.
:One can choose from various backgrounds to give the sheet a different flavor, one that matches the game being played. Currently, one can choose from the following list of backgrounds:
+
  
<gallery>
+
PEG announced impending support for Roll20. It's hoped that this will include Compendiums of ready-to-use maps, PCs, and NPCs and more. [https://www.peginc.com/virtual-tabletop-vtt-for-savage-worlds-expanding PEG, April 14, 2020].

+
== Character Sheet Tab ==
File:Night-cityscape_3.jpg|Supers
+
 
File:Z-background.jpg|Zombie-esque
+
The Character sheet tab contains all the data for a Savage Worlds character, and leverages the capabilities of Roll20 to auto-calculate derived stats (including Parry or cyberpunk Strain), calculate roll modifiers (including Wounds or encumbrance), and provide buttons for die rolls (including trait, power, and damage rolls).
</gallery>
+
 
:Backgrounds will continue to be added to fill other genre/styles. For example, Fantasy, etc.
+
The sheet includes every skill from the Savage Worlds Deluxe and Adventure editions plus a few popular skills such as: Faith, Guts, Rituals, Spellcasting, Psionics, and Weird Science. All skills except for Fighting are hidden by default allowing the player to select the skills they will be using.
 +
 
 +
==== Attributes ====
 +
If you have a weapon or edge that modifies an attribute, click the cog and enter it in the 'modifier due to edges' field.
 +
 
 +
==== Skills ====
 +
Click the Configure (wrench/hammer) icon to select from standard skills. You can add more skills to the standard list through the Configuration tab. You can add custom skills by clicking the + (plus) button at the bottom left. Custom skills can be linked to any attribute.
 +
 
 +
==== Health ====
 +
Wounds, Fatigue, and Distracted will be applied as modifiers to trait rolls. Wounds and Fatigue are usually linked to Tokens (Bar 3 and Bar 1, respectively).
 +
 
 +
==== Derived Statistics ====
 +
Parry and Toughness are calculated automatically, and Toughness includes modifiers from armor in the Armor section.
 +
 
 +
Size and Encumbrance can be enabled in the Configuration Tab.
 +
 
 +
==== Miscellaneous ====
 +
The Trait and Damage modifiers will be applied to Trait and Damage rolls. Some players link these to Tokens (Bar 1 and Bar 2).
 +
 
 +
Load Limit Modifier - This helps calculate the Load Limit. The Load Limit is a calculated field and is the maximum weight a character can carry before becoming encumbered. The formula is:
 +
 
 +
<code>(@{strength}+@{stMod}) * @{loadlimitmulitplier}</code>
 +
 
 +
Total Load Carried - This is a calculated automatically as the sum of armor, weapons, and gear carried.
 +
 
 +
==== Advancements ====
 +
Use this to record what was added with each advancement. If you increase a trait or add an edge, you should also record that in those sections; this is just a log. This section can be configured to appear on the Character or Journal page.
 +
 
 +
==== Weapons ====
 +
The weapon button can be Damage, Attack + Damage, or if RoF is more than 1, AttackX + Damage.
 +
 
 +
The weapon will only show in the Stat Block and the weight will only be counted if carried (Carried button shows a checkmark).
 +
 
 +
The notes field is shown when rolling damage.
 +
 
 +
==== Powers ====
 +
The configuration button (wrench/hammer) allows multiple Powers sections to support multiple arcance backgrounds (spell casting, psionics, etc.)
 +
 
 +
The trappings field is shown when the power is activated. The notes field can configured to also show at activation.
 +
 
 +
Power points are not automatically reduced when a power is activated. Many players link the power points field to Bar 2 on their token.
 +
 
 +
==== Armor ====
 +
Armor weight is added to total weight if it is carried, even if it is not worn. If worn, the armor value is automatically added to Toughness.
 +
 
 +
==== Gear ====
 +
The weight of gear that is worn is automatically added to total weight.
 +
 
 +
==== Augmentations ====
 +
The Augmentation section can be enabled in the Configuration settings.  This field is mainly intended for cyberpunk settings or any other setting that may use implants to enhance or extend the bodies capabilities, especially if those implants are mechanical in nature.  This section is '''NOT''' a repeating section and there are a total of 12 different rows that a character can use, but they are show in groups of 4 rows.  While this potentially adds to the clutter of the character sheet this approach was taken so that the Strain can be calculated and automatically applied to the '''Strain''' Derived Stat.  Each Row in this section has three fields: Augmentation, Strain, and Details.
 +
 
 +
The initial view will display the first four rows. Below that block is a button to show another four rows.  Clicking that button will display a second set of four rows (8 total will then be displayed). Below that block will be two buttons, one to hide 4 rows and one to add 4 more rows.  Clicking the Hide 4 Rows buttons will hide the last 4 rows. Clicking the Add 4 Rows buttons will add 4 more rows and below that button will be a button to Hide 4 rows.  This has the same functionality as the other Hide button, always hiding the last 4 rows.  Hiding the rows does not erase the data, so if you had Strain values in those rows, the '''Strain''' stat will still be impacted.
 +
 
 +
== Vehicle Sheet Tab ==
 +
The Vehicle tab supports SWD and SWADE vehicles.
 +
 
 +
== Configuration Tab ==
 +
This section is where you can modify the sheet to fit a particular setting you may be playing. Settings are grouped into:
 +
 
 +
* Quick Setting Configuration--- This changes the other configuration settings as a group to match a setting.
 +
* Backgrounds
 +
* Logos
 +
* Sheet Tweaks
 +
* Derived Stats--- Stats selected here will be calculated and appear in the character tab. Examples: Corruption, Sanity.
 +
* Field Name Replacements
 +
* Skill Name Replacements
 +
* Additional Setting Fields--- Fields selected here will appear in the character tab. Examples: Augmentations, Fencing Styles.
 +
* Rules Modifications--- These change dice rolls, and derived stats. Examples: Gritty Damage, No Power Points, Use Wealth System.
 +
 
 +
All skills except Unskilled and Fighting are hidden (unselected) by default. Fighting is always visible, since it is necessary in calculating Parry.
 +
 
 +
 
 +
 
 +
== Macros Without Programming ==
 +
**No programming required!** The character sheet provides a lot of automation and you can easily move those buttons into the macro bar or Token Macro bar.
 +
 
 +
=== Turn Rolls Into Macros ===
 +
You can make macros for rolls from the character sheet, so you don't have to open the character sheet for common things like rolls to notice, attack, or unshake.
 +
 
 +
# Open the Character Sheet
 +
# Drag the d20 icon next to the roll down to your macro bar at the bottom of the screen
 +
# This will add the macro but it will have a long name. Right click on the macro to rename it.
 +
 
 +
=== Turn Rolls Into Token Macros ===
 +
You can make Token Macros for rolls from the character sheet. Token Macros appear in a menu at the top of the screen, only visible when you click on your token.
 +
 
 +
First, get the script for the macro:
 +
# Open the Character Sheet.
 +
# Click on the Roll button (dice icon) you'd like as a token macro. For example, choose the Damage roll for the first weapon. The dice will roll and you'll see the result in the chat window.
 +
# Click in the chat window and press the Up Arrow key. The chat window will show the macro script (example below). Copy the text from the macro window. (Don't copy the example below, it won't work for you.)
 +
 
 +
 
 +
-----
 +
'''damage macro example''' (built into character sheet)
 +
<br><code><nowiki>&{template:damage} {{name=@{Ishmael|character_name}}} {{source=Shariha (Knife) }} {{dmg_rank=Str+1d4+0}} {{dmg_roll=[[@{Ishmael|strength_rank}+1d4!+0 + @{Ishmael|damagemods}]]}} {{bonus_die=[[@{Ishmael|vbonusdamage}]]}} {{showap=[[1d0+]]}} {{ap=}} {{notes=Improved Trademark Weapon, +2 hit, +1 parry. 3/6/12}} {{button=y}} {{DmgRoll=[Re-Roll Damage](~-LZkrQ6g_wBtlsu7Z4sM|repeating_weapons_-Lahy6h2MHL4mPqwHHzh_dmg) }}</nowiki></code>
 +
 
 +
 
 +
Next, add an Ability (macro) to the token:
 +
# Click back in the character sheet window and select the Attributes & Abilities tab.
 +
# In the Abilities column, click the ''+ Add'' button. A ''New Ability'' row will appear. Hover it and click the pencil icon. Give the macro a name like "Slash with knife".
 +
# Paste the macro text into the main text box. Click the checkbox icon to finish.
 +
# After you've closed the macro editing box, select ''Show as Token Action''.
 +
# Deselect the token. When you click to select it again, the token macro should appear.
 +
 
 +
== Useful Token Macros ==
 +
With a little scripting, you can make a menu With the SW-TCS you can save screen space and use macros to act without having to open the character sheet.
 +
 
 +
These scripts are mostly stored as Abilities in a character sheet named "player-macros", set so it Can Be Edited And Controlled By = All Players. Storing scripts in a character sheet (instead of the macro list) makes it possible to move all the macros to another game (with the transmogrifier) and edits affect all players.
 +
 
 +

==== Check Notice on Many Characters ====
 +
-----
 +
'''notice-rolls''' (macro) prompts user to click on four tokens, then rolls Notice for each. By [https://app.roll20.net/users/2656153/mike-deboston Mike deBoston]

<br><code><nowiki>&{template:info} {{item=Notice Rolls}} {{@{target|Character 1|token_name}=Notice d@{target|Character 1|notice}, rolls [[@{target|Character 1|notice_rank} + @{target|Character 1|NoticeskillMod}+ @{target|Character 1|ModSum}[Distracted, Wounds, Fatigue] + @{target|Character 1|traitmods}]].}} {{@{target|Character 2|token_name} =Notice d@{target|Character 2|notice}, rolls [[@{target|Character 2|notice_rank} + @{target|Character 2|NoticeskillMod}+ @{target|Character 2|ModSum}[Distracted, Wounds, Fatigue] + @{target|Character 2|traitmods}]].}} {{@{target|Character 3|token_name}=Notice d@{target|Character 3|notice}, rolls [[@{target|Character 3|notice_rank} + @{target|Character 3|NoticeskillMod}+ @{target|Character 3|ModSum}[Distracted, Wounds, Fatigue] + @{target|Character 3|traitmods}]].}} {{@{target|Character 4|token_name}=Notice d@{target|Character 4|notice}, rolls [[@{target|Character 4|notice_rank} + @{target|Character 4|NoticeskillMod}+ @{target|Character 4|ModSum}[Distracted, Wounds, Fatigue] + @{target|Character 4|traitmods}]].}}</nowiki></code>
 +
 
 +
 
 +
==== Character Sheet Core Skills Menu ====
 +
You can make a menu that appears in the chat window with character sheet rolls and other information; this helps players play faster by not having to open their character sheet and by reducing the options.
 +
 
 +
These macros are created in a character sheet named "player-macros" so that they can be easily moved to other games with the Transmogrifier (a Pro feature).
 +
 
 +

==== Shoot with Trademark Weapon Edge ====
 +
This macro is handy but it's also a good example of many elements you can use in other macros:
 +
 
 +
* The Roll Template
 +
* Getting the trait die and trait modifier (like d12!+2) `shooting_rank`
 +
* Getting just the trait modifier (like +2) `shootingMod`
 +
* Getting the additional trait modifier from an edge (like +1) `shootingSkillMod`
 +
* Getting the Wild Die, in case an edge makes it not d6 (like d8) `shootingWildDie`
 +
* Including modifiers for Distracted, Wounds, Fatigue, and Encumbrance `modSumEnc`
 +
* Including modifiers from the traitMods on the character sheet `traitMods`

== Creating Your Own Macros ==
 +
All of the formulas used for the Trait roll buttons follow the same basic formula, shown in this Agility example:
 +
 
 +
This is the basic formula for traits that aren't linked to Agility, like Notice. It doesn't factor in Encumbrance, but it factors in Distracted, Wounds, and Fatigue. This makes scripts that roll Notice look a little more complicated than they really are.
 +
<br><code><nowiki>[[@{notice_rank} + @{NoticeskillMod}+ @{ModSum}[Distracted, Wounds, Fatigue] + @{traitmods}]]</nowiki></code>
 +
 
 +
This is the basic formula for Agility and Agility-linked traits like Fighting. It takes into account Encumbrance.
 +
<br><code><nowiki>[[@{fighting_rank} + @{FightingskillMod}+ @{ModSumEnc}[Distracted, Wounds, Fatigue, Encumbrance] + @{traitmods}]]</nowiki></code>
 +
 
 +
-----
 +
'''Agility Roll Formula''':
 +
<br><code><nowiki>/em @{character_name} attempts to be agile and rolls [[{1d@{agility}![Agility], 1d@{wilddie}![Wild Die]}kh1 + @{agMod}[Agility Rank Modifier] + @{agrollMod}[Agility Roll Modifier] + @{ttmod}[Trait Test Modifiers] + @{encumbrance}[Encumbrance Penalty] - @{woundsMod}[Wounds] - @{fatigue}[Fatigue]]]</nowiki></code>
 +
 
 +
 
 +
 
 +
=== Shortcuts for Creating Macros ===
 +
The tabbed character sheet has a lot of hidden fields that you can reference in your own macros.
 +
 
 +
For Attributes and built-in Skills, hover over the attribute or skill and you'll see a tooltip like <code>@{tAgility}</code> or <code>@{tAthletics}</code>. When you create a new Ability (macro) as above, just use enter something like <code>%{selected|tAgilityRoll}</code> or <code>%{selected|tAthleticsRoll}</code>.
 +
 
 +
 
 +
'''Hidden Fields''':
 +
These fields are hidden but available to make it easier to make your own macros:
 +
{| class="wikitable"
 +
|-
 +
! Field Name !! Ability Macro Text
 +
|-
 +
| rollAgility || @{rollAgility}
 +
|-
 +
| rollSmarts || @{rollSmarts}
 +
|-
 +
| rollSpirit || @{rollSpirit}
 +
|-
 +
| rollStrength || @{rollStrength}
 +
|-
 +
| rollVigor || @{rollVigor}
 +
|}
 +
 
 +
The Ability macro text does not need to be enclosed in double square brackets, nor does it require a /r or /roll, because the value of each field is already a roll.  Creating that macro will roll exactly as if the roll button next to each Attribute had been pressed.
 +
 
 +
<br clear=all>
  
:You can also choose to not use a background and have have a plain white sheet.
+
=== Roll Templates ===
 +
When you click on the character sheet for a Trait roll, the output in the Chat window is formatted by a Roll Template. When you click on the sheet for a damage roll, the output is formatted by the Damage roll template. There are many Roll Templates available and you can use them to format the output from your own macros.
  
<small>'''Logos'''</small>
+
* Roll--- A black 2-column table used for Trait rolls
:The logos one can choose from (currently) are all for official settings and are used with permission from the respective copyright holder. More logos will be added over time as permission is received to do so.
+
* Damage--- A red 2-column table used for damage rolls
 +
* Info--- A tan 1-column table with a text field
 +
* Description--- A black 1-column table with a text field
 +
* Unshake--- Uses emote (italic, tan text) with a roll to unshake.
 +
* Running--- Uses emote with text and a roll to run.
 +
* Consumables
 +
* Emote--- Italic, tan text on a tan background.
 +
* Gritty
 +
* Statblock--- A tan 1-column table with many fields for a complete Stat Block.
  
<small>'''Other Miscellaneous Tweaks'''</small>
+
Use a template by specifying the name followed by a series of field/value pairs.
[[File:SWT-Att-DiceDDM.png|right|Attribute section using the Dice Drop Down Menu]]
+
:'''Dice Drop Menus''': Replace the standard drop down menu with a drop down that shows the die type rather than a textual version of the die type.  These special Drop Down menus are only for the Wild Card version of the Character Sheet and only work for non-Repeating sections.  When selected, the Wild Die will also use the Dice Icon as well.
+
  
:'''Hide the Arcanum Tab''': Selecting this will hide the Arcanum tab from the Wild Card Character Sheet.  Selecting this also hides the Arcanum section when the All tab is selected.
 
[[File:SWT-NoArcanum.png|left|View of the Wild Card Tab row without the Arcanum tab]]<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
 
  
[[File:SWT-QLog-FontList.png|right|Font list menu for the Quest Log]]
+
-----
:'''Quest Font Type''': The quest font type is used to change the font used for the Quest Log on the Journal tab.  There are 9 options to choose from, 8 of which are handwriting style fonts.  The intent is to give the quest log a little more of an immersive feel.
+
'''example-roll-template'''
:[[File:SWT-QuestLogWithFont.png|left|Snapshot of the Quest Log with a handwriting font selected]]<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
+
<code><nowiki>&{template:roll} {{name=Mike the Portal Maker}} {{trait=Open Portal}} {{source=Spirit}} {{skill_rank=d6}} {{skill_roll=[[1d6!]]}} {{mook=[[1d0+1]]}} {{wild_die=[[1d6!]]}}</nowiki></code>
  
===== Configuration: Game Settings =====
 
:[[File:SWT-Game-Settings.png|right|Snapshot of the Game Settings Configuration Window]]
 
: This section of the Configuration is broken down into 2 areas: Home Brew Rules, and Setting Modifications.  Setting Modifications is further broken down into 3 groups: Additional Derived Stats, Field Replacements, and Additional Fields.  This section is where you can modify the sheet to fit a particular setting you may be playing.
 
  
:'''Home Brew Rules''': Currently, there is only one option under this section and that is allow a progression of Bonus Damage Dice when raises are achieved.  According to the Core Rules, when an attack succeeds with one ore more raises damage is rolled with an additional d6—however, some groups play where each additional raise on the attack roll increases the die type by one, to a maximum of d12.  Checking this box will provide a drop down menu where the appropriate die type for the bonus damage can be selected.  This will be outlined later in the appropriate section under Skills and Arcanum.
+
The <code>mook</code> field needs a 0 or 1 value, you should enter either [[1d0]] or [[1d0+1]].
  
:'''Additional Derived Stats''': This grouping provides more Derived stats to flesh out a campaign. These are different from the other groupings in that the items under this heading will appear in the Derived Stats section of the Basic Info tab. Currently, this section includes (each will be discussed in the Derived Stats section of this guide):
+
Most templates have a set of fields you can use. The Info template is unique; you can send any field name you'd like and it will show in the output.
::*Fame
+
::*Firewall
+
::*Grit
+
::*Sanity
+
::*Strain
+
::*Street Cred
+
  
:'''Field Replacements''': These are options to re-label an existing field of the character sheet.  For example, Low Life refers to money as Clams, and 50 Fathoms as well as Pirates of the Spanish Main use Pieces of Eight.  The money field remains the same, only the label changes.  In most instances, the field that is being replaced will be listed in parentheses next to the new field label.  The options available are:
 
::*Claims
 
::*Code Name
 
::*Pieces of Eight
 
::*Origin of Parahuman Abilities (this modifies the Physical Appearance header, but doesn't really replace anything—merely adds to it)
 
::*Species
 
::*Threat Rating
 
  
:'''Additional Fields''': These are fields that can be shown in other areas of the character sheet, but are not Derived Stats.  Most of these additional fields appear on the Basic Info tab, but no all of them. The list of additional fields includes:
+
==== Damage Roll Template ====
::*Augmentations (Equipment Tab)
+
This will put a 'Reroll' button at the bottom of the damage template. Be sure to change the part that says '~test|Work-the-room' to the name of the character sheet and name of the macro you add this to.
::*Home World (Basic Info Tab)
+
::*Occupation (Basic Info Tab)
+
::*Permanent Injuries (Basic Info Tab)
+
::*Ship Name (Basic Info Tab)
+
::*Worst Nightmare (Basic Info Tab)
+
  
Each of these additional fields will be discussed in the section of the guide detailing the appropriate tab.
+
<code><nowiki>{{button=y}} {{DmgRoll=[Reroll](~test|Work-the-room)}}</nowiki></code>
  
===== Configuration: Core Skills =====
 
:[[File:SWT-ConfigSkills.png|right|Skills available to Wild Cards in the Configuration window]]
 
:The Core Skills windows are essentially identical, the only difference is which character sheet view is affected.  Rather than list out all the skills available (see the screen shot), all the skills from the Savage Worlds Deluxe Core rules are available, plus the following additional skills:
 
::*Faith
 
::*Guts
 
::*Psionics
 
::*Ritual
 
::*Spellcasting
 
::*Weird Science
 
  
:All skills are hidden (unselected) be default, except for Fighting which is always visible, since it is necessary in calculating Parry.

Each tab will be discussed in detail below, except for the All tab.  This tab displays all sections in one, long scrollable section (as if there were no tabs).
 
  
====  <span style="color:white;">Basic Info</span> ====
+
{{mbox|text=The roll templates will break if any of the fields called aren't properly filled out. This is most likely to occur with roll templates used in conjunction with repeating sections.}}
<blockquote style="border:1px solid #755b27;background:#dbc792;color:#755b27;padding:10px">Basic Info</blockquote>
+
:[[File:SWT-Basic-Demographics.png|600px|right|Basic Info Tab: Demographics]]
+
:The Basic Info tab contains much of the core information about a character and is broken down into two basic categories: The Demographic information, and "The Other Stuff".
+
===== <span style="color:white;">Demographics</span> =====
+
:'''Demographics'''
+
::This section contains the following fields:
+
:::*Name - This is the Characters Name.  If the Field Replacement Code Name is checked (in Configuration), an additional field will also appear labeled "Civilian Name". This is useful for Superheroes or Spycraft type settings.
+
:::*Player - This is the name of the person playing the character
+
:::*Homeworld - This field is one of the "additional fields" and is useful for Sci-Fi settings where the characters may be from different homeworlds.
+
:::*Race - The character's race would be entered here.
+
:::*Gender/Age - These are two different fields.  The first is Gender where the player can enter the gender the character identifies as. This is an open text field allowing for more genders rather than the standard binary Fe-/Male. Age is a numeric value representing how old the character is.
+
:::*Derived Stats—This section's header consists of: Base (the starting or default value), Mod (Modifier—any bonuses or penalties that affect the derived stat), Armor (any armor values that may impact the Derived stat—this really is only fro Toughness currently), and Current (the sum of Base+Mod+Armor).  There are a couple of Derived Stats with a different header and those will be detailed below. 
+
:::**Pace - The pace of the character. The Base value is 6
+
:::**Parry - The character's parry score. The Base value is (Fighting/2)+2
+
:::**Sanity - This field is one that can be added via the Configuration window. It was first introduced in the ''Tour of Darkness'' setting.  The Base value is (Spirit/2)+2
+
:::**Charisma - This field is the standard Charisma stat for Savage Worlds. The Base Value is 0
+
:::**Fame - This field is one that can be added via the Configuration  window. It was first introduced in the ''Pirates of the Spanish Main'' setting.  It is a measure of ones standing in society and starts at 0
+
:::**Firewall - This field is one that can be added via the Configuration  window. It was first introduced in the ''Interface Zero 2.0'' setting. The base value is 4
+
:::**Grit - This field is one that can be added via the Configuration  window. It was first introduced in the ''Deadlands'' setting. The Base value is 1 point of Grit per Rank (i.e. Novice = 1, Legendary = 5)
+
:::**Toughness - The character's Toughness score.  The base value is (Vigor/2)+2
+
:::**Street Cred - This field is one that can be added via the Configuration  window. It was first introduced in the ''Interface Zero 2.0'' setting. The base value is 2 points per Rank (i.e. Novice = 2, Legendary = 10). Generally speaking, the max amount of Street Cred one can have is 10, however, this can be modified by Edges, though there is no place to capture the Max Street Cred Modifiers.  The Mod field for this field applies to a person current Street Cred rating, and the Current value = Base+Mod
+
:::**Strain - This field is one that can be added via the Configuration  window. It was first introduced in the ''Interface Zero 2.0'' setting. This represents the strain on the body and Spirit due to cybernetic augmentation. The base value is 0.  The Max field indicates the maximum strain your character can handle. Current = Mod + Strain totals (calculated from the values in the Augmentations section of the Equipment Tab).
+
:::*Wild Die - This is the Wild Die that will be used when rolling a Trait Test for a Wild Card character.  This is a text input field (or can be changed to the Dice Drop Down menu via the Configuration window) so it can be changed to accommodate homebrew rules and/or edges that may modify the Wild Die.
+
:::*XP - This is a numeric field to capture the number of experience points a character has
+
:::*Rank - This is the Rank of the character.  0-19 = Novice, 20-39 = Seasoned, 40-59 = Veteran, 60-79 = Heroic, and 80+ = Legendary.  Unfortunately, at the current time this field does not auto-adjust and must be manually updated.
+
:::*Occupation - This field is one that can be added via the Configuration  window. This field is used in various settings to indicate the characters occupation that is presented to the world.
+
:::*Money - Moolah, Dinero, how much cash a character has available to purchase stuff...
+
:::*Ship's Name - This field is one that can be added via the Configuration  window. This field is used in any setting where the character may come into possession of a ship (whether it's a space craft or a seafaring vessel, no distinction is made by this field)
+
===== <span style="color:white;">The Other Stuff</span> =====
+
:'''The Other Stuff'''
+
[[File:SWT-Basic-OtherStuff.png|600px|right|Basic Tab: The other Stuff]]
+
::This section encompasses everything from Attributes, to Health, to a Character's Description, to various Modifiers. It includes:
+
:::*Attributes
+
:::*Health
+
:::*Miscellaneous
+
:::*Logo
+
:::*Worst Nightmare
+
:::*Physical Appearance
+
  
::'''Attributes'''
+
For example, if you are using a roll template for a damage roll and calling the fields from one of the repeating weapons selection, ALL fields for that weapon will have to be explicitly initialized (i.e. you will need to make sure that you have entered a value in every field at least once--even if a value was already there when the weapon was created (default values do not initialize fields in repeating sections, so you will need to enter each field and hit enter to ensure that the values are activated). If field information is missing, the roll template results will not be what you expect.
:::The Savage Worlds Tabbed sheet contains all five standard Attributes (Agility, Smarts, Spirit, Strength, and Vigor). Each Attribute consists of three elements: Rank, Mod(ifier), and Roll buttons. The rank is broken up into two elements: the die type and any bonuses to the skill die type. The bonus to the die type only applies to the skill rank and will not be added to the Wild Die for any rolls. The reason the Rank encompasses two fields is to allow derived stats to calculate properly.  Toughness cannot take half of 12!+2, but it can take half of 12+2.  The modifier under the Mod column is applied to both the Skill roll and the Wild Die roll.

[edit] Intro

Savage Worlds (tabbed) Character Sheet, v3

The Savage Worlds Tabbed Character Sheet (SW-TCS) tracks Wild Card characters, Extra characters, and vehicles for Savage Worlds by Pinnacle Entertainment Group. It supports the Core rules for Savage Worlds Deluxe (SWD) and Adventure Edition (SWADE), includes support for many popular settings, and allows for customization. It automatically calculates modifiers due to wounds, fatigue, and encumbrance, and provides buttons for trait, attack, damage, and other rolls.


Contents


[edit] Major Feature Tabs

Buttons at the top access the major features of the sheet (called tabs).

Major Character Sheet Tabs, v3


  • Character Tab--- For Wild Cards and Extras
  • Vehicle Tab--- Attributes like Handling, Toughness, Top Speed, Crew
  • Quest Log Tab--- Including personal appearance and community property
  • Configuration Tab--- Customize skills, edges, rules, and design for a particular setting
  • Stat Block--- Not really a tab. Outputs to chat, suitable for pasting into other applications
  • Release Notes Tab
  • Documentation Tab--- Find help here


[edit] Common Buttons

These character sheet conventions that apply throughout the character sheet.

SW-TCS show-hide buttons.jpg
Show/Shrink Buttons: Next to the section title, click the Shrink icon to hide the section (or shrink it to a summary). Click the Eye icon to show it again.


SW-TCS roll buttons.jpg
SW-TCS repeating roll buttons.jpg

tRoll Buttons: Clicking the troll button will roll its associated trait, weapon, or power. Roll buttons can be dragged to the Macro quick bar at the bottom of the screen. You can make rolls public or visible only to the GM: Hover the item to reveal the settings (ygear) icon, then select Whisper roll to GM.

Here's the general formula for the roll buttons:

 Highest of Rank die + Rank modifier, or Wild die
 + Trait Roll Modifier 
 + Trait Test Modifier (or Damage Modifier for damage rolls) 
 + Encumbrance Penalty (0 or negative for Agility & Strength-based rolls) 
 - Wounds
 - Fatigue 

Weapon and Power roll buttons are configurable (click the cog):

  • Damage--- Rolls damage when clicked
  • Atk + Dmg--- Rolls linked attack skill (like Fighting or Shooting) when clicked. The roll result has a button to roll damage. The linked skill is configurable.
  • Atkx + Dmg--- Used for guns with RoF more than 1. Prompts for number of skill dice (max is the RoF) before rolling.
  • Cast--- For powers, rolls linked skill like Faith or Spellcasting. The linked skill is configurable.


Sw-roll-template.png
Roll Template: The standard roll template appears in the chat window to show the results of attribute and skill rolls.
  • The trait roll (left), is already adjusted for the modifiers shown on the next row.
  • The Wild die (or Group/Crit Check) (right), is always rolled. If it's for an extra that doesn't need the crit check, just ignore it. It's rolled automatically to save time.
  • Modifiers (2nd row) include Wounds, Fatigue, Encumbrance, and others.
  • Roll Damage button (bottom row) is visible if the trait roll was made by clicking on a weapon or power.


Sw-damage-template.png
Damage Roll Template: The damage template appears in the chat window to show the results of damage rolls.
  • The damage roll (left), is already adjusted for modifiers. If there are any (like Wounds), they are shown in the next row
  • The bonus damage roll (right), is always rolled. Use it if you got a raise on the attack roll or otherwise need it, or just ignore it.
  • Notes are shown if entered in the weapon description
  • Modifiers (next row, not shown)




SW-TCS repeating items.jpg
Repeating Sections: At the bottom of each repeating section (Skills, Hindrances, Edges, Advancements, Weapons, Powers, Armor), there are buttons to add more items, or delete and rearrange existing items.


[edit] Character Sheet Import & Export

There hasn't been a working character sheet import script for a long time. When it worked, it required a paid account. You could paste in a Stat Block, run the script, and it would populate all the Character Sheet fields.

With a paid account, you can move character sheets from one Roll20 game to another. As a GM, if you build a bestiary, this would be a way to re-use your work.

PEG announced impending support for Roll20. It's hoped that this will include Compendiums of ready-to-use maps, PCs, and NPCs and more. PEG, April 14, 2020.

You can easily output character data as a Stat Block in a format that many other sites will import.

[edit] Character Sheet Tab

The Character sheet tab contains all the data for a Savage Worlds character, and leverages the capabilities of Roll20 to auto-calculate derived stats (including Parry or cyberpunk Strain), calculate roll modifiers (including Wounds or encumbrance), and provide buttons for die rolls (including trait, power, and damage rolls).

The sheet includes every skill from the Savage Worlds Deluxe and Adventure editions plus a few popular skills such as: Faith, Guts, Rituals, Spellcasting, Psionics, and Weird Science. All skills except for Fighting are hidden by default allowing the player to select the skills they will be using.

[edit] Attributes

If you have a weapon or edge that modifies an attribute, click the cog and enter it in the 'modifier due to edges' field.

[edit] Skills

Click the Configure (wrench/hammer) icon to select from standard skills. You can add more skills to the standard list through the Configuration tab. You can add custom skills by clicking the + (plus) button at the bottom left. Custom skills can be linked to any attribute.

[edit] Health

Wounds, Fatigue, and Distracted will be applied as modifiers to trait rolls. Wounds and Fatigue are usually linked to Tokens (Bar 3 and Bar 1, respectively).

[edit] Derived Statistics

Parry and Toughness are calculated automatically, and Toughness includes modifiers from armor in the Armor section.

Size and Encumbrance can be enabled in the Configuration Tab.

[edit] Miscellaneous

The Trait and Damage modifiers will be applied to Trait and Damage rolls. Some players link these to Tokens (Bar 1 and Bar 2).

Load Limit Modifier - This helps calculate the Load Limit. The Load Limit is a calculated field and is the maximum weight a character can carry before becoming encumbered. The formula is:

(@{strength}+@{stMod}) * @{loadlimitmulitplier}

Total Load Carried - This is a calculated automatically as the sum of armor, weapons, and gear carried.

[edit] Advancements

Use this to record what was added with each advancement. If you increase a trait or add an edge, you should also record that in those sections; this is just a log. This section can be configured to appear on the Character or Journal page.

[edit] Weapons

The weapon button can be Damage, Attack + Damage, or if RoF is more than 1, AttackX + Damage.

The weapon will only show in the Stat Block and the weight will only be counted if carried (Carried button shows a checkmark).

The notes field is shown when rolling damage.

[edit] Powers

The configuration button (wrench/hammer) allows multiple Powers sections to support multiple arcance backgrounds (spell casting, psionics, etc.)

The trappings field is shown when the power is activated. The notes field can configured to also show at activation.

Power points are not automatically reduced when a power is activated. Many players link the power points field to Bar 2 on their token.

[edit] Armor

Armor weight is added to total weight if it is carried, even if it is not worn. If worn, the armor value is automatically added to Toughness.

[edit] Gear

The weight of gear that is worn is automatically added to total weight.

[edit] Augmentations

The Augmentation section can be enabled in the Configuration settings. This field is mainly intended for cyberpunk settings or any other setting that may use implants to enhance or extend the bodies capabilities, especially if those implants are mechanical in nature. This section is NOT a repeating section and there are a total of 12 different rows that a character can use, but they are show in groups of 4 rows. While this potentially adds to the clutter of the character sheet this approach was taken so that the Strain can be calculated and automatically applied to the Strain Derived Stat. Each Row in this section has three fields: Augmentation, Strain, and Details.

The initial view will display the first four rows. Below that block is a button to show another four rows. Clicking that button will display a second set of four rows (8 total will then be displayed). Below that block will be two buttons, one to hide 4 rows and one to add 4 more rows. Clicking the Hide 4 Rows buttons will hide the last 4 rows. Clicking the Add 4 Rows buttons will add 4 more rows and below that button will be a button to Hide 4 rows. This has the same functionality as the other Hide button, always hiding the last 4 rows. Hiding the rows does not erase the data, so if you had Strain values in those rows, the Strain stat will still be impacted.

[edit] Vehicle Sheet Tab

The Vehicle tab supports SWD and SWADE vehicles.

[edit] Configuration Tab

This section is where you can modify the sheet to fit a particular setting you may be playing. Settings are grouped into:

  • Quick Setting Configuration--- This changes the other configuration settings as a group to match a setting.
  • Backgrounds
  • Logos
  • Sheet Tweaks
  • Derived Stats--- Stats selected here will be calculated and appear in the character tab. Examples: Corruption, Sanity.
  • Field Name Replacements
  • Skill Name Replacements
  • Additional Setting Fields--- Fields selected here will appear in the character tab. Examples: Augmentations, Fencing Styles.
  • Rules Modifications--- These change dice rolls, and derived stats. Examples: Gritty Damage, No Power Points, Use Wealth System.

All skills except Unskilled and Fighting are hidden (unselected) by default. Fighting is always visible, since it is necessary in calculating Parry.


[edit] Macros Without Programming

    • No programming required!** The character sheet provides a lot of automation and you can easily move those buttons into the macro bar or Token Macro bar.

[edit] Turn Rolls Into Macros

You can make macros for rolls from the character sheet, so you don't have to open the character sheet for common things like rolls to notice, attack, or unshake.

  1. Open the Character Sheet
  2. Drag the d20 icon next to the roll down to your macro bar at the bottom of the screen
  3. This will add the macro but it will have a long name. Right click on the macro to rename it.

[edit] Turn Rolls Into Token Macros

You can make Token Macros for rolls from the character sheet. Token Macros appear in a menu at the top of the screen, only visible when you click on your token.

First, get the script for the macro:

  1. Open the Character Sheet.
  2. Click on the Roll button (dice icon) you'd like as a token macro. For example, choose the Damage roll for the first weapon. The dice will roll and you'll see the result in the chat window.
  3. Click in the chat window and press the Up Arrow key. The chat window will show the macro script (example below). Copy the text from the macro window. (Don't copy the example below, it won't work for you.)



damage macro example (built into character sheet)
&{template:damage} {{name=@{Ishmael|character_name}}} {{source=Shariha (Knife) }} {{dmg_rank=Str+1d4+0}} {{dmg_roll=[[@{Ishmael|strength_rank}+1d4!+0 + @{Ishmael|damagemods}]]}} {{bonus_die=[[@{Ishmael|vbonusdamage}]]}} {{showap=[[1d0+]]}} {{ap=}} {{notes=Improved Trademark Weapon, +2 hit, +1 parry. 3/6/12}} {{button=y}} {{DmgRoll=[Re-Roll Damage](~-LZkrQ6g_wBtlsu7Z4sM|repeating_weapons_-Lahy6h2MHL4mPqwHHzh_dmg) }}


Next, add an Ability (macro) to the token:

  1. Click back in the character sheet window and select the Attributes & Abilities tab.
  2. In the Abilities column, click the + Add button. A New Ability row will appear. Hover it and click the pencil icon. Give the macro a name like "Slash with knife".
  3. Paste the macro text into the main text box. Click the checkbox icon to finish.
  4. After you've closed the macro editing box, select Show as Token Action.
  5. Deselect the token. When you click to select it again, the token macro should appear.

[edit] Useful Token Macros

With a little scripting, you can make a menu With the SW-TCS you can save screen space and use macros to act without having to open the character sheet.

These scripts are mostly stored as Abilities in a character sheet named "player-macros", set so it Can Be Edited And Controlled By = All Players. Storing scripts in a character sheet (instead of the macro list) makes it possible to move all the macros to another game (with the transmogrifier) and edits affect all players.


[edit] Check Notice on Many Characters


notice-rolls (macro) prompts user to click on four tokens, then rolls Notice for each. By Mike deBoston
&{template:info} {{item=Notice Rolls}} {{@{target|Character 1|token_name}=Notice d@{target|Character 1|notice}, rolls [[@{target|Character 1|notice_rank} + @{target|Character 1|NoticeskillMod}+ @{target|Character 1|ModSum}[Distracted, Wounds, Fatigue] + @{target|Character 1|traitmods}]].}} {{@{target|Character 2|token_name} =Notice d@{target|Character 2|notice}, rolls [[@{target|Character 2|notice_rank} + @{target|Character 2|NoticeskillMod}+ @{target|Character 2|ModSum}[Distracted, Wounds, Fatigue] + @{target|Character 2|traitmods}]].}} {{@{target|Character 3|token_name}=Notice d@{target|Character 3|notice}, rolls [[@{target|Character 3|notice_rank} + @{target|Character 3|NoticeskillMod}+ @{target|Character 3|ModSum}[Distracted, Wounds, Fatigue] + @{target|Character 3|traitmods}]].}} {{@{target|Character 4|token_name}=Notice d@{target|Character 4|notice}, rolls [[@{target|Character 4|notice_rank} + @{target|Character 4|NoticeskillMod}+ @{target|Character 4|ModSum}[Distracted, Wounds, Fatigue] + @{target|Character 4|traitmods}]].}}


[edit] Character Sheet Core Skills Menu

You can make a menu that appears in the chat window with character sheet rolls and other information; this helps players play faster by not having to open their character sheet and by reducing the options.

These macros are created in a character sheet named "player-macros" so that they can be easily moved to other games with the Transmogrifier (a Pro feature).

[edit] Shoot with Trademark Weapon Edge

This macro is handy but it's also a good example of many elements you can use in other macros:

  • The Roll Template
  • Getting the trait die and trait modifier (like d12!+2) `shooting_rank`
  • Getting just the trait modifier (like +2) `shootingMod`
  • Getting the additional trait modifier from an edge (like +1) `shootingSkillMod`
  • Getting the Wild Die, in case an edge makes it not d6 (like d8) `shootingWildDie`
  • Including modifiers for Distracted, Wounds, Fatigue, and Encumbrance `modSumEnc`
  • Including modifiers from the traitMods on the character sheet `traitMods`

[edit] Creating Your Own Macros

All of the formulas used for the Trait roll buttons follow the same basic formula, shown in this Agility example:

This is the basic formula for traits that aren't linked to Agility, like Notice. It doesn't factor in Encumbrance, but it factors in Distracted, Wounds, and Fatigue. This makes scripts that roll Notice look a little more complicated than they really are.
[[@{notice_rank} + @{NoticeskillMod}+ @{ModSum}[Distracted, Wounds, Fatigue] + @{traitmods}]]

This is the basic formula for Agility and Agility-linked traits like Fighting. It takes into account Encumbrance.
[[@{fighting_rank} + @{FightingskillMod}+ @{ModSumEnc}[Distracted, Wounds, Fatigue, Encumbrance] + @{traitmods}]]


Agility Roll Formula:
/em @{character_name} attempts to be agile and rolls [[{1d@{agility}![Agility], 1d@{wilddie}![Wild Die]}kh1 + @{agMod}[Agility Rank Modifier] + @{agrollMod}[Agility Roll Modifier] + @{ttmod}[Trait Test Modifiers] + @{encumbrance}[Encumbrance Penalty] - @{woundsMod}[Wounds] - @{fatigue}[Fatigue]]]


[edit] Shortcuts for Creating Macros

The tabbed character sheet has a lot of hidden fields that you can reference in your own macros.

For Attributes and built-in Skills, hover over the attribute or skill and you'll see a tooltip like @{tAgility} or @{tAthletics}. When you create a new Ability (macro) as above, just use enter something like %{selected|tAgilityRoll} or %{selected|tAthleticsRoll}.


Hidden Fields: These fields are hidden but available to make it easier to make your own macros:

Field Name Ability Macro Text
rollAgility @{rollAgility}
rollSmarts @{rollSmarts}
rollSpirit @{rollSpirit}
rollStrength @{rollStrength}
rollVigor @{rollVigor}

The Ability macro text does not need to be enclosed in double square brackets, nor does it require a /r or /roll, because the value of each field is already a roll. Creating that macro will roll exactly as if the roll button next to each Attribute had been pressed.


[edit] Roll Templates

When you click on the character sheet for a Trait roll, the output in the Chat window is formatted by a Roll Template. When you click on the sheet for a damage roll, the output is formatted by the Damage roll template. There are many Roll Templates available and you can use them to format the output from your own macros.

  • Roll--- A black 2-column table used for Trait rolls
  • Damage--- A red 2-column table used for damage rolls
  • Info--- A tan 1-column table with a text field
  • Description--- A black 1-column table with a text field
  • Unshake--- Uses emote (italic, tan text) with a roll to unshake.
  • Running--- Uses emote with text and a roll to run.
  • Consumables
  • Emote--- Italic, tan text on a tan background.
  • Gritty
  • Statblock--- A tan 1-column table with many fields for a complete Stat Block.

Use a template by specifying the name followed by a series of field/value pairs.



example-roll-template &{template:roll} {{name=Mike the Portal Maker}} {{trait=Open Portal}} {{source=Spirit}} {{skill_rank=d6}} {{skill_roll=[[1d6!]]}} {{mook=[[1d0+1]]}} {{wild_die=[[1d6!]]}}


The mook field needs a 0 or 1 value, you should enter either 1d0 or 1d0+1.

Most templates have a set of fields you can use. The Info template is unique; you can send any field name you'd like and it will show in the output.


[edit] Damage Roll Template

This will put a 'Reroll' button at the bottom of the damage template. Be sure to change the part that says '~test|Work-the-room' to the name of the character sheet and name of the macro you add this to.

{{button=y}} {{DmgRoll=[Reroll](~test|Work-the-room)}}


Optional fields for Trait Roll Template usage:

Template Field Description
{{skill_roll(2-4)}} Additional options for more trait tests, to support multi-action and/or Frenzy type actions.
{{skill_name(2-4)}} Additional options for more trait tests, to support multi-action and/or Frenzy type actions.
{{skill_rank}} The die rank of the Trait (skill or attribute).
{{skill_rank(2-4) Additional options for more trait tests, to support multi-action and/or Frenzy type actions.
{{skill_rank_mod}} The die rank modifier of the Trait (skill or attribute).
{{skill_rank_mod(2-4) Additional options for more trait tests, to support multi-action and/or Frenzy type actions.
{{wild_die}} The formula used for the actual Wild Die roll. Must be done as an inline roll.
{{wild_die(2-4) Additional options for more trait tests, to support multi-action and/or Frenzy type actions.
{{wild_die_rank}} The Wild Die die-type.
{{wild_die_rank(2-4) Additional options for more trait tests, to support multi-action and/or Frenzy type actions.
{{enc}} Encumbrance penalty
{{wounds}} The number of wounds for the character
{{fatigue}} The number of Fatigue levels for the character
{{att_mod}} The Attribute Roll Modifier
{{skill_mod}} The Skill Roll Modifier
{{ttmod}} Situational Roll Modifier
{{sit_notes}} Situational Modifier Notes (can be used to list all the situational modifiers that equal the one modifier value)
{{bonuses}} Generic field for blanket bonuses
{{penalties}} Generic field for blank penalties
{{notes}} Generic field for notes

Example of usage: &{template:solidtrait} {{name=@{character_name}}} {{skill_name=Agility}} {{skill_rank=@{Agility}}} {{skill_rank_mod=@{agMod}}} {{att_mod=@{agrollMod}}} {{ttmod=@{ttmod}}} {{wounds= -@{wounds}}} {{fatigue= -@{fatigue}}} {{skill_roll=[[1d@{agility}! + @{agMod} + @{agrollMod}[Skill Modifier] + @{ModSum}[Other Modifiers]]}} {{wild_die_rank=@{wilddie}}} {{wild_die=[[1d@{wilddie}! + @{agMod} + @{agrollMod}[Skill Modifier] + @{ModSum}[Other Modifiers]]}}


For example, if you are using a roll template for a damage roll and calling the fields from one of the repeating weapons selection, ALL fields for that weapon will have to be explicitly initialized (i.e. you will need to make sure that you have entered a value in every field at least once--even if a value was already there when the weapon was created (default values do not initialize fields in repeating sections, so you will need to enter each field and hit enter to ensure that the values are activated). If field information is missing, the roll template results will not be what you expect.

[edit] Bugs and New Feature Requests

As of April 2020, discussion of features and bugs is in the [SWT Test Game v4 and later].

As of July 2020, these are the known bugs:

  • Bug - Encumbrance shouldn't be on non-Agility skills and custom skills. (Workaround: Recreate skills as custom skills.)
