Counter Types: Add four types of counter to the character sheets: checkbox, fraction, number and success/failure.

Triggers: Triggers allow you to automatically change a counter's value or state when the triggering event occurs. For example, for a homebrew Exhaustion counter, you could set a trigger to increase a character's exhaustion when they are reduced to 0 HP, make the character dead when they reach 10 levels of exhaustion and reduced their exhaustion when they take a long rest.

The available triggers are: 0 HP; Half HP or lower; combat end, if hit 0 HP any time during combat; long rest; short rest.

Required Modules


LibWrapper is used to wrap Foundry VTT's application render method to add data to the character sheets without editing the HTML. This should no longer be required with the release of Application V2.


The Radial Status Effects feature is a modification of code developed by Dorako under the MIT License, which is reproduced here: Licence
