Character List

The list of active PCs in a campaign is shown in the upper left corner of the tabletop, and grows to the right as more PCs are activated. Only players can activate PCs for the character list. See the Character Management topic for information on how to activate PCs.

Character List

Player Actions

  • Select a Character: Double Click the character portrait in the Characters Campaign Tool. This Character will then be owned by that Player Name.
  • View a Character: Click on the character portrait (with a single active PC), or double click on the character portrait (with multiple active PCs).
  • Release a Character: Right click on portrait and select Release. The character will be removed from the active character list until it is re-activated. The character will be available for another player to select. Releasing a character will also remove it from the players local cache so do not do this with a character you are playing long term.
  • Toggle AFK: Right click on portrait and select Toggle AFK. An icon will be placed on the portrait to indicate that the player is AFK (Away From Keyboard). The AFK icon will automatically toggle off once the user types in the chat window.

Playing 2 or More Characters

  • Select additional Character: Open the Characters Campaign Tool and Double Click the second character portrait. This Character will then be owned by that Player Name.
  • Activate a Character: Click on the character portrait (with multiple active PCs). The active character will be used when chatting, and is denoted by a bold name in the character list. The active characters dice color will be used for all rolls made while that character is active.
  • Release a Character: Right click on portrait and select Release. The character will be removed from the active character list until it is re-activated. The character will be available for another player to select. You should do this if you are picking up a missing players character for this session only.

GM Actions

  • View a Character: Click on the character portrait.
  • Kick a Player: Right click on any character portrait owned by the player, and select Kick. The player will be disconnected from the session, and all characters activated by the player will be released.
  • Ring Player Bell: Right click on any character portrait owned by the player, and select Ring Bell. The default OS sound will be played on the player's machine.
