With the update of version 0.2.5 of quick hits it will remove your old saved playlist setting. You will need to update the Quick Hit settings.


Quick Combat module for FVTT

Adds the ability to add a Combat Playlist. Whenever you start combat the playlist will start.

Adds Auto Experience Tracking. When NPCs are defeated it will add the experience to PCs.

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.
  • Combat Toggle Keybind - Keybind combination to start and stop combat. Its not located in the Configure Controls Settings Menu, Under Quick Hits.
  • Combat Toggle Keybind WITHOUT playlist - Keybind combination to start and stop combat, but will not start the Combat Playlist or Fanfare Playlist. Not longer exists due to Playlist Selection Window
  • Remove Defeated NPCs? - Will delete any of the defeated NPC tokens from the scene.


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.


Start Combat

Quick Combat Tokens Selected

Select all tokens for combat.

Hit the Combat Toggle Keybind hot key.

New in Version 0.2.6 If enabled: A Window will pop up asking which playlist to start. Select which playlist to start or None to start no playlist and continue the same as before.

Quick Combat Playlist With Boss

If you have set a boss playlist in the settings the option will appear.

Quick Combat Playlist With Boss

If no boss playlist has been set in the settings the boss playlist option will not appear.

Quick Combat Start

Adds all selected tokens to combat tracker, rolls all tokens initiatives, starts combat.


End Combat

Quick Combat End

Hit the Combat Toggle Keybind hot key, a warning will pop up to make sure it wasn't an accident.

Will remove all combatants, and if experience tracking was enabled will find all defeated NPCs, calculate experience and display a chat box with all PCs experience.
