I have been using Roll20 since August, 2013. I started when I was trying to find an online battle grid for a D&D 4e campaign when we had multiple people joining via a conference call, and simply describing the layout of the battlefield was far too inefficient. One of the players, Eric V., recalled the Kickstarter for Roll20, and recommended that I look it up. My group has greatly enjoyed the features it grants, and I've gone as far as purchasing a Mentor-level subscription.

+
=== Character Sheets ===
 
+
This project will be a challenge, as deck-building games don't work particularly well in Roll20, but I don't get the opportunity to play with my physical copy of the game nearly enough. This is the first major API undertaking I've begun since the introduction of API command buttons in the chat pane, and I hope to leverage that ability to make up for the lack of card support.

+
Status:
+
* All of the card images have been uploaded

+
* Database of card information is complete
+
* Deck creation is complete
+
* Board cleanup is complete

This will, ideally, be a ''Fiasco'' table which can be run without anyone with GM privileges being present. However, this project is currently on hold.

Status:

* List and select playsets

* Select relationships, needs, locations, and objects

* Establish/resolve scenes and grant white/black dice to self or others (depending on act)
+
* Select tilt
+
 
+
 
+
Needed:
+
* Set text for relationships/etc.
+
* Full tables for each playset (tied in with the above)

Runner-up for the character sheet contest!

Created in partnership with Benjamin Bandelow.

Status:

* Base Solar sheet complete
+
* Tabs organize information
+
* Expandable table for storing premade attack and damage rolls
+
 
+
 
+
Needed:
+
* Multiple sheet configurations in order to allow for alternative Exalt types; this is not yet implemented in the character sheet system
+
 
+
 
+
The most up-to-date (beta) version of the sheet's code can be found on [https://github.com/Lithl/roll20-character-sheets/tree/master/Exalted2e my GitHub account]. The code used by Roll20 (stable) can be found on [https://github.com/Roll20/roll20-character-sheets/tree/master/Exalted2e Roll20's GitHub account]; the former is a fork of the latter, and pull requests are often made to synchronize the two. However, if there is a difference between the two, the former repository will have the newer version.
+
 
+
You should not need either codebase unless you '''have''' to modify the sheet for your campaign: simply selecting Exalted 2e from the dropdown list in your campaign info should be sufficient.
+
 
+
If you want to report bugs or request new features for the character sheet, please [https://github.com/Lithl/roll20-character-sheets/issues submit issues on my repository]. If you want to make changes to the sheet yourself, please fork my repository and submit pull requests to me, rather than forking the Roll20 repository directly and submitting pull requests to Riley.

I have been using Roll20 since August, 2013. I started when I was trying to find an online battle grid for a D&D 4e campaign when we had multiple people joining via a conference call, and simply describing the layout of the battlefield was far too inefficient. One of the players, Eric V., recalled the Kickstarter for Roll20, and recommended that I look it up. My group has greatly enjoyed the features it grants, and I've gone as far as purchasing a Pro-level subscription.

[edit] Background

I have approximately 10 years of experience with computer science, attending Rice University for computer science for four years. Since purchasing my Pro-level membership, I've been putting that knowledge to use when I can with the Roll20 API.

  • Advanced Dungeons & Dragons
  • Black Crusade
  • Changeling: the Dreaming
  • Dark Ages: Mage
  • Dark Ages: Vampire
  • Dark Heresy
  • Deathwatch
  • Demon: the Fallen
  • The Dreaming
  • Dresden Files RPG
  • Dungeons & Dragons 3.5
  • Dungeons & Dragons 4e
  • Exalted
  • Exalted 2e
  • Fiasco
  • Iron Kingdoms
  • Legacy Crossing
  • Mage: the Ascension
  • Mage: the Awakening
  • Mage: the Socerer's Crusade
  • Mutants and Masterminds
  • Nobilis
  • Outbreak Undead
  • Paranoia
  • Unknown Armies
  • Unknown Ponies: Failure is Awesome
  • Vampire: the Masquerade
  • Werewolf: the Apocalypse
  • Wraith: the Oblivion


I have also participated in three LARPs: Vampire: the Masquerade, an oWoD crossover (Vampire, Werewolf, and Changeling), and Exalted 2e.

[edit] Projects

As of January 16, 2015, there are:

  • 179 long pages
  • 179 short pages
  • 83 uncategorized files
  • 80 dead-end pages
  • 28 unused files (several caused by the deletion of Script:Custom Power Cards)
  • 27 orphaned pages
  • 9 unused templates, one of which is marked as a candidate for deletion, 5 are used in the article deletion process, and 2 are caused by errors
  • 7 wanted categories
  • 4 uncategorized pages, three of which I do not have permissions to edit and therefore cannot categorize
  • 3 unused categories, although two ought to be empty, and the third is the target of a soft redirect which contains pages I can't edit
  • 1 uncategorized category (Category:Docs), which I do not have permissions to edit and therefore cannot categorize
  • 1 broken redirects, although the target should be re-created eventually
  • 0 wanted templates
  • 0 uncategorized templates
  • 0 wanted files (plus 39 links to a redirected file name)
  • 0 double redirects

[edit] Character Sheets

I am responsible for the following character sheets:


Games using the Storyteller system (World of Darkness, etc.) are also heavily influenced by my work on the Exalted 2e sheet, which was runner-up in the Character Sheet contest held at feature launch of the community character sheets system. I have also assisted in solving problems encountered by other users in making various sheets, and I designed the Quintessence Wheel for the Mage: the Ascension sheet.

[edit] Git Notes

These are simply some notes to myself on the git command line. The following are much more advanced processes than for example what I wrote about in Beginner's Guide to GitHub. These notes are intended for myself and no explanation is given to accompany them. Utilize at your own risk.

[edit] Delete a Commit

Back up to Head - N or a specific commit:

git reset --hard HEAD~1
git reset --hard sha1

Force the push

git push origin HEAD --force

[edit] Sync a Fork

git fetch upstream
git merge upstream/master
git push origin

[edit] Force Overwrite of Fork

Overwrites everything in the local copy with the original (upstream, the official repo), then uses that to overwrite the fork (origin).

git fetch upstream
git reset --hard upstream/master
git push origin HEAD --force

[edit] Requests

I am not currently taking requests of any kind.
