Drop My Torch contains macros and set of tokens used to easily handle a character lighting and later dropping a held light source.



You can install this module automatically by inputting the following module URL:


Once activated in a game world, import the "Drop My Torch tokens" and "Drop My Torch macros" compendiums into your Actors and Macros.

As yet, the light values are set to those of D&D 5e. Pathfinder 1e support is planned for a future update.



Add the "Drop Torch" and "Light Torch" macros to your macro hotbar. Select one or more tokens, then activate the Light Torch macro. A dialog box appears to change which light source the selected tokens are holding. Click the appropriate button, then close. When one or more tokens drop their light source, select those tokens, and activate the Drop Torch macro. An appropriate token will be created in the bottom-right corner of each selected character token, then the character token will be set to not emit light.

The "Light Torch" macro was heavily inspired by the "Light Picker" macro from Foundry Community Macros (

Art for the tokens were kitbashed from Forgetten Adventures ( map making assets. If you like this module, go buy maps or character tokens from them so the art styles will match perfectly.
