    3. Restart Foundry to reload the module.

 

Unlock your Compendia!

Remember that you need to unlock your compendia to be able to add things to them.

 

Default Setup

This module comes with 12 Default compendia:

 

Customize

To change the default setup, edit the module.json file. All compendia are defined within the "packs" attribute beginning with line 10.

For example:

 

{
  "packs": [
    {
      "name": "monsters",
      "system": "dnd5e",
      "label": "Monsters",
      "path": "./packs/monsters.db",
      "module": "my-shared-compendia",
      "type": "Actor"
    },
    {
      "name": "my-custom-items",
      "system": "dnd5e",
      "label": "My Custom Items",
      "path": "./packs/items.db",
      "module": "my-shared-compendia",
      "type": "Item"
    }
  ]
}
 

Note: There are no compendium Types for Classes, Feats, and Features in Foundry, so the Item type is generally used for these.

 

Dependencies

DnD5e Game System is required: The Game System adds some SRD Compendia. Using Compendium Folders is highly recommended.
