This module contains a collection of action "spells" that you can drag into PC or NPC caster sections on the actions tab. All of these already have the appropriate cast, damage, heal and/or effect actions attached to them. This collection is far from complete, and I will be adding to it over time. It currently contains some of the most common feats, items, and combat actions which are typically placed onto the actions tab for quick application while in combat. Having these available to drag onto your sheets should help speed up PC and NPC creation time.

If you find any issues, disagree with how I coded anything up, or want to request specific items to 'fast-track' into the next drop of this module, please reply to this thread and I will try to be as responsive as possible.

I will always maintain the most up-to-date version of this module linked to the first post of this thread.

Enjoy!

P.S. Could I get this stickied to the main Modules List thread when you have a chance? Thanks!

This is appreciated, but I hope you know that Smite Works plans to revamp the effects system (possibly including heal/damage/cast actions) so much of this might become obsolete after the Unity engine is done.

I don't think the Unity port has anything directly to do with the structure of the rulesets, which is where the effects system comes from. The Unity port has to do with the underlying FG platform, and I specifically remember hearing that they weren't going to be changing the underlying structure (XML and LUA) of rulesets/extensions/modules for backward compatibility reasons.

Can someone from SW chime in here and shed some light please? Thanks.

Added to the modules list. Thanks for putting this together.

Note: Some effects have REMOVE: added and require the player effect removal extension (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?21546-Player-Effect-Removal-Extension) to operate fully (which is a good thing - thanks for using in the library).

Made a note of dependent extensions in the first post, thanks for pointing that out Trenloe.

I didn't say it did. I said after they do the Unity thing, they said one of the things they were planning to do was revamp how effects were structured. The mention of Unity was just to note that it might be a while before they get to this since they are busy working on Unity at the moment.

I don't remember where I saw it, but it caused me to stop working on my actions module. I'm surprised Trenloe didn't post some info.

Also, you might be able to sweet talk Trenloe into adding a piece of code to the Remove extension that allows for the STACK tag (the code goes in the same place and thus wouldn't be any harder to update the extension). The stack tag would make things like mirror image easier since it increments an effect each time you stack it and decrements it when you Remove it. (Thus you could add the random number of images upon casting and click a Remove button to remove an image each time you were attacked.)

JPG mentions that a restructure of the effects system is "some point down the line" but "not currently scheduled" here: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?24470-Effect-Targeting-5e-4e-CoreRPG-etc&p=214209&viewfull=1#post214209

I would think that you would get plenty of life out an extension between now and then...

Thanks for your job ! Any chance you will add the Paladin Smite Evil ?

I'd say it's unlikely. I'm not really doing much active development on this module right now. I only added the new things in post #11 because they were common things I was running across often while preparing stuff on the GM side.

Too bad... But anyway, thanks for what you have done !

Hi Darrenan, your library sounds terribly useful, but am unsure of how to access the content.
I've dropped it into my module folder. Should I be able to load it in the Library section, or something like that?

Activate the module in Module Activation - then it should appear in the effects window - accessed from the right sidebar, not the library.

Thankyou Trenloe - very much appreciated.

Mmm no. Nothing in this module shows up in the effects window.

After you load the module you should be able to access collections of action 'spells' from the Library. These are grouped into related collections such as Class Features, Combat Actions, Universal Monster Abilities, etc. You can also open up a window containing All of the actions at once. Each action in this library is meant to be dragged into a Caster Class on the actions tab of either a PC character sheet, or an NPC sheet. Each of these spell actions comes with the appropriate cast, damage, heal, and/or effect buttons ready to be triggered, although some of them (such as Poison and Disease) may need additional specifics entered or details tweaked.

Note that I didn't get very far on the class features portion of the library. I think Barbarian, Bard, and Cleric are the only ones I completed. Although, helpfully there is pretty complete collection of all the cleric domain abilities ready to go. However, it has not kept pace with Paizo releases so you may find some class features or domains missing.

thanks guys.

got the gist of what you said Trenloe and found it.

very useful indeed darrenan. guy selling a similar complete 5e package on DMGuild for 30 bucks a pop - id pay for it.

madman, there's no descriptive text for the effects in the mod for 3.3.3 either, but fortunately the effects are properly annotated in the character sheet action tab when u hit the hourglass - I just checked three of them and they worked correctly, uniquely and concurrently (flank, charge, defensive fighting).

Cheers Ripskreig

Awesome! I've been doing that for a while and wondered if others did it as well! It'd be nice if newer FG versions would increase support of spell "actions." I use it to track all kinds of consumables, daily "spells" on items, daily abilities, etc. I usually split it to several spell "classes" - abilities (to include class and racial) and another for "items".

I just uploaded a new version of this module that splits Fighting Defensively and Total Defense each into four separate spells for the various combinations of 3+ acrobatics y/n and Crane Style y/n. Previous each entry had four different actions for those different combinations.

One other note, you may noticed that I have started using IFTAG: here and there in some effects. This functionality relies on Kelrugem's "Save Versus Tags" extension, or one of its many variants. If you're not using one of them then effects containing this syntax will be no-ops.
