Groupcheck is a popular API script meant to run checks for several tokens at once. You can specify the type of check to run and it will roll it once for every selected token. Note that you will have to configure the script and import the right types of checks before you can use it.

For the full documentation, check the GitHubLogo.png, or the API's info page in the API Selection menu.

Basic usage

Having configured some checks, you can call the script using the following syntax

!group-check [--options] --Check Command

Here, you can supply zero or more options (see the section on options for specifics) that modify what exactly is rolled. Check Command is the command associated to the check you want to run. If no valid Check Command is supplied, a list of valid commands (in the form of API buttons) is instead output to chat, allowing you to press them to roll the corresponding check. Check Command will then be rolled once for every selected token that represents a character, and the result will be output to chat.


Suppose that we are using D&D 5E, and want to roll a Dexterity saving throw for every selected token, outputting the result to the GM only. The command would be

!group-check --whisper --Dexterity Save

Note that this only works after having imported the right data for the sheet you are using.

If you have two tokens selected, representing the characters Sarah and Mark, the script will output (with default settings)

Sarah: [[d20 + @{Sarah|dexterity_saving_throw_mod}]]

Mark: [[d20 + @{Mark|dexterity_saving_throw_mod}]]

Internally, the form of the check is proscribed by a formula; the formula in this case is of the form [[d20 + @{dexterity_saving_throw_mod}]], and the script will fill in the right attribute in place of @{dexterity_saving_throw_mod}.


The script is designed to be easily configured to your specific system's needs. You can configure the script using the !group-check-config command. !group-check-config accepts the following options:

  • !group-check-config --show – will display the current list of checks and the default options for GroupCheck.
  • !group-check-config --import [Name] – imports a predefined set of checks and adds them to the list. Currently, the available choices for [Name] are 5E-Shaped, 5E-OGL(D&D 5E by Roll20), Pathfinder-Official, Pathfinder-Community, and 3.5.

So to configure it for the common 5E sheet, write !group-check-config --import 5E-OGL
