Features

Overview

  • One-Click Macros for Mythic GME basic components: Fate Charts, Scene Alteration, Events and Chaos Level

Macros

These macros provide complex functionalities summarized in a one-click event. Most of them bring up a Dialog in which the player customizes or elaborates the event.

Selecting a Token will cause the Macros to interact with a Foundry VTT actor, speak on his behalf or even sometimes use its information for better flavor!

GM Emulator Blue Book

  • Fate Chart: Rolls on the Fate Chart. Triggers Random Events when appropriate.
  • Random Event: Generates a random event.
  • Scene Alteration: Checks if the proposed event is still valid. Rolls Random Events when appropriate.
  • Increase Chaos Rank
  • Decrease Chaos Rank
  • Check Chaos Rank

The Crafter Series

Macros for the Randomized Locations Crafter, inspired in the Mythic Magazine 2 are available to be used. You can track Progress Points and use any of your own tables to follow the logic described by either The Location Crafter or The Randomized Version from the Magazine.

TABLES NOT INCLUDED: As a Matter of Principle, I prefer not to include the crafter tables, as the crafter series are already beyond the original scope of the module :)

Creating the random tables by yourself is relatively straight forward, use Nested tables to achieve the Special and Random Results, and even the Known if you have your own Random Tables!

Check my video to learn how to very fast ingest tables into Foundry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-28Nks44SfM

The Oracle Builder

Create your own Oracles with Random Tables, supporting multiple draws per tables and flavor dialogues Oracle Builder

Rolling your own tables

Either from Foundry Random Tables or Tables you have outside (printed, or in a PDF, etc), these macros will help you stay sharp and consistent!

Flavored Roll Table

Keep chat consistency by rolling from a Random Table normally with a question (flavor) in mind

External Roll Table

Keep chat and overall consistency by rolling tables outside your game as if they belonged here!

Chat and Exporting

General Features

  • Every Mythic check in Mythic GME Tools produces a flavored, self-explanatory chat message.
  • A setting Automatic Adventure Logging (default: disabled) exports all oracle checks to a journal entry.
  • Resize sidebar for a bigger chat place with Sidebar Resizer
  • A macro Export Chat to Journal allows dumping the current chat into a Journal Entry with a single click.
  • Rolling dice with Dice so Nice! module enabled will flavor and slowly produce results as the 3D dice give away their outcomes.

This will help keep track of your emulator's guidance and your game!

Formatted Message - Send message to the chat with flavor, color and style

Keep your game chat log clear and consistent, add headers, subtitles, and more

Exporting your game

Export current Chat to Journal - Either for backup or for history tracking. You can do this in two ways:

  • By using the Macro to export current Chat to a Journal Entry
  • By enabling Auto-Logging setting that automatically puts all your chat in a daily journal

Customizing your playstyle

All Tables that are necessary to execute the aforementioned macros are included and may also be used independently.

Macros use Roll Tables. Going to Module Settings lets you choose which tables are being used. Table names must begin with Mythic in order to be eligible. By default, Macros pick up Tables by their name, so also importing the Tables from the Compendium and making modifications on them, will automatically apply to the Macros looking for them. Try to keep the same format of the tables to avoid issues. Delete imported tables to revert Macros to use the original ones.

Saved Progress

  • Chaos Rank: When changing Chaos Rank, the value will be saved and reused across all functions
  • Behavior Actor Disposition: Tokens and Actors on which Behavior Check was used, will save their information in your game. Running Behavior Checks on the same tokens will bring up their current disposition data!
  • Statistic Checks Macro will store the last utilized Attributes for more convenience playthrough!

Configurable Settings

  • Minimum and Maximum Chaos Rank is configurable
  • Custom color for Chaos Die in Variations #2
  • Optional setting rules from Variations #1 and #2
  • Globally select Focus, subject, action and descriptor tables for all Macros (i.e. for a Variations #1 Theme)
  • Automatic logging into Journal Entries
  • Configure different levels of speed and tension when interacting with 3D Dice (Dice so Nice!)

Card Decks

NOTE - Deck Images are not included and can be purchased from DriveThruRPG or similar outlets.

Overview

  • Includes presets for GME Deck, TAC Deck and the GMA Decks
  • Configure your Deck folder for the Macros to be able to pull them into the game (See instructions below)
  • Optionally rotate cards feature (Mythic and TAC need this) - Note: Must be changed within the Macro Script
  • Toggle shuffle off if required - Note: Must be changed within the Macro Script
  • Set image file type to match your card image files. - Note: Must be changed within the Macro Script

Things to Know and Modules

Playing without a GM, Solo or story telling in Foundry requires some practice. The following tips might boost your learning process.

Learn to use Foundry's Chat

Try this on the chat:

Plot Point 1: [[1d100]]
Plot Point 2: [[1d100]]
<b>Plot Point 3:</b> [[1d100]]
Plot Point 4: [[1d100]]
Plot Point 5: [[1d100]]

The dice formula within double brackets on each side will roll for you the dice and print it alongside the rest of the text. With Shift+Enter you can insert new lines on the same chat dialogue. The <b>text</b> styling format will give you a bold text! Check out some other basic tags like <em>...</em> for italic format or <h2>...</h2> for subtitles. Check for more tags here

Install Inline Table Rolls module

With Inline Table Rolls module, you can do the same of the above, but including drawing from random tables, look:

Plot Point 1: [[1d100]] - Theme: [[#Plotline Theme]]
Plot Point 2: [[1d100]] - Theme: [[#Plotline Theme]]
Plot Point 3: [[1d100]] - Theme: <b>[[#Plotline Theme]]</b>
Plot Point 4: [[1d100]] - Theme: [[#Plotline Theme]]
Plot Point 5: [[1d100]] - Theme: [[#Plotline Theme]]
