Blades In The Dark
|Project source||Project URL|
This module is a replacement for the default character sheets in Megastruktur's Blades in the Dark system for Foundry VTT.
This sheet should mostly work with data from the original sheets. Some information, such as the acquaintances section, will be missing until added manually.
Because of the way I've had to handle data, though, it's not advised to try to switch back and forth between these sheets and the default sheets.
To change playbooks, just drag/drop a class from the Class compendium onto the sheet. THIS WILL OVERWRITE ABILITIES, SKILL RATINGS, AND LOADOUT ITEMS Seriously. It automatically resets a bunch of stuff.
I have plans to add a confirmation/check to see if you want to save anything, but it's not in yet, because honestly, it's a decent amount of hassle for something that shouldn't happen very often.
Dropping a playbook onto your sheet will set the default ability scores, add all available playbook abilities, and playbook items, as well as creating a list of default acquaintances.
To emulate the official character sheets, items and abilities are handled as virtual lists. That is, all of the available items or abilities (depending on your playbook) are displayed, regardless of whether you have them equipped or not. These lists are generated from items and abilities that exist in your world and compendia, depending on the settings you've selected:
Edit mode - The lock button in the top right corner toggles most sheet editability. When editing is unlocked, you can right-click and delete custom items that you've added (but not playbook default or generic items). If you've added non-playbook abilities, just uncheck them to delete them from your sheet. You can also edit biography info. This info (Background, Heritage, etc.) is taken from dropped items as in the original sheet, but you can also type into these fields, and this entered text will override the owned item values.
Mini mode - The blue button in the top right corner will toggle the sheet between full view and a mini mode that is suitable for most play needs, showing a list of owned abilities, biographical info, your skill values, etc.
Harm, Coin, Load - These buttons next to the character portrait will open popups for making changes.
