View Full Version : NPC Attacks

This should be a fairly simple question. I did some searching, but did not find the information or at least did not understand what I was finding.

I'm creating an NPC's attack. I want to do a simple bolt attack that does 2d4 +2 damage. I can type that into attack entry field, but it does not function as an attack I can click on and generate a result.

How can I make it an clickable auto attack?

it should look something like:
Bolt +5 (2d4+2)
You didn't list whatever the 'attack' roll was so I'm making a random assumption.
The damage goes in ()'s and it doesn't work without an 'attack' bonus.

It should be:
Bolt +5 ranged (2d4+2 piercing)

This will correctly set the attack range type, and damage type. If you are using standard weapon names (i.e. crossbow, longsword, etc.), then the damage types will be assumed if not explicitly stated.

Thanks that seems to work. I had tried something very similar, but this works.
