Adds a Hotkey to quickly add PCs, and NPCs to the combat tracker, roll their initiatives, and start combat.

Current Game System Support

This module has been tested with the systems listed below. Plan is to make it available to other systems in the future. For other systems, everything except the Experience tracking should work, but this has not been tested yet.


How To Use Quick Combat


FoundryVTT Version 9 Updates

With the new keybind capabilities built into Foundry Quick Combat no longer requires any dependencies, and some of the settings have moved/changed as noted below. The same basic functionality still exists.



Quick Combat Settings

  • Combat Playlist - select from a list of playlists to play when starting combat, or None to not change the playlist.
  • Fanfare Playlist - select from a list of playlists to play when combat ends, will randomly select a track to play.
  • Boss Combat Playlist - select from a list of playlists to play when starting combat, or None to not change the playlist. This is separate from the Combat Playlist.
  • Only Roll Initiative for NPCs? - When adding combatants to the combat tracker, only roll for NPCs and not PCs. If your players like to roll their own initiatives. Doesn't do anything for the OSE system.
  • Combat Experience Tracking - (DND5E Only!) For any defeated NPCs will add any experience and for all PCs in combat will add any gained experience.
  • GM Experience Whisper - Only Message the GM the experience gained.
  • Remove Defeated NPCs? - Will delete any of the defeated NPC tokens from the scene.
  • Enable Combat Markers? - Adds combat markers to current token and on deck token.


Keybind Settings

Quick Combat Settings

Under the Configure Control Settings Menu is located a Quick Combat Action Category. Where the Combat Toggle Keybind setting is now located. This can be changed as before.

NOTE Due to the way this Foundry setting works I had to change the default keybind from Shift + C to Alt + C.


Pets and Summons

Included with the module is a compendium of features Pet and Summon.

Quick Combat Settings

If any character sheet has either of these Features included into them they will NOT be included in the combat tracker.

Combat Markers

Combat Markers will only work if the following modules are enabled:

Adds an animated icon to the Current Active Turn Token and the On Deck Token.

  • Current Token is the Yellow animated image
  • On Deck is the Blue animated image


  • The On Deck marker will skip any defeated combatants
  • Any hidden (sneaking) tokens will be skipped from being marked. I havent found a good way to make the animation hidden just yet.

Combat Marker Settings

Once Combat has started and every time the next turn button is clicked the Current/On Deck markers will move to the respected tokens

Combat Markers

The combat Markers will skip any defeated combatants when finding the On Deck Marker

Combat Markers Skip Defeated

The Combat Markers will ignore any hidden token, if token becomes visible the animation will not be applied until next turn.
