This extension is designed for those who want to make use of the tools/techniques detailed in the TTRPG Safety Toolkit within Fantasy Grounds.

For more information on the TTRPG safety toolkit, the original PDF is available here: TTRPG Safety Toolkit (https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/114jRmhzBpdqkAlhmveis0nmW73qkAZCj)

This extension implements the X, N and O cards in a way that allows a player to anonymously indicate to the GM. When the player clicks on one of the cards, it opens a window on the GM's screen showing the card clicked. The GM can then click on the card to acknowledge the card. When the GM acknowledges a card, a message is sent to chat indicating which card was acknowledged.

This extension should be compatible with all Corerpg based rulesets.

v1.2 - added compatibility for BetterMenu extension
v1.1 - compatibility fix for FG Unity. Added a chat acknowledgement for O card submissions. Display message in the form of "O card submitted by X of Y players connected".

Thanks for this Matt! Question (I'm at work for a few more days so I can't play with this) that immediately popped into my head though: what if someone is "X Card" -ing the GM? If the GM gets veto power and denies the card, no one else sees it and the GM has just blown the issue over, potentially further compounding the issue.

Also, is there flood protection so people can't just spam it?

Hmm, a lot of those issues depend on communication between the GM and players. If the GM is just vetoing the cards, why would they bother using the system? And why would players continue in a game where their concerns are being ignored.

I suppose I could put in chat notification that a card was submitted, so all other players would know that a card was submitted. Again, it would be anonymous as to who clicked the card. Would that be a good addition to implement? It seems like a chat notification on submission could lead to spamming the chat which would annoy everyone. The GM acknowledgement only happens once per card, no matter how many people have clicked the card.

For flood protection, I tried to keep the window small to be as unobtrusive as possible while still being visible. Clicking multiple times on a card before its acknowledged doesn't do anything. If a player clicks on an X card 20 times in a row, it only shows one window on the DM side, its does not create a new window for each click. Basically for the DM each card is either activated or not. They get turned off once the DM acknowledges them.

I got a request for an addition I will begin working on. The idea is to add a sort of survey of trigger items. So the DM would prepare a list of potential trigger items, the players would each respond like a questionaire and check the ones they are sensitive to. The DM would see which items were checked. I'm working out just how to implement it.

I really want to be able to use this in my Vampire the Masquerade games. Will this work? I have the ultimate version of FG classic.

It should work just fine. I havent had a chance to test it, I dont own the VtM ruleset, but it doesnt interfere with any part of the ruleset code, so it should be safe.

That's great news. Now can you tell me how to add it to my game? Sorry I'm new to this.

In the first post, there is the extension attached. Download the extension file and put it in your fantasy grounds data folder, inside the extensions directory. On the screen where you load your campaign, you should see a list of extensions you can enable. Just make sure the Safety Toolkit extension is checked then start your campaign.

Nevermind. its in a different place entirely. LOL

And yes it does work in Vampire the Masquerade.

That is the install directory, not the data folder. To find the data folder, launch fantasy grounds, and at the launcher screen, look for a folder button in the top right corner. click on that button to open the data folder where the extensions directory will be.

I wasnt aware of a storm. One of the community members reached out to me to inquire about building this, and so I did. Hopefully people that want/need it find it useful.

I'll take a look. I know Unity has been changing things with fonts, so I'll see what I can do with the current state.

Is there a way to tell if multiple people are tapping a given card? I mean, obviously for X or N, you only really need to know that at least one person is, but for O, you kinda need to know if there's at least one person not tapping...

Hmm, thats a good point. I'll have to think on it. The O card really isnt intended to be used anonymously. The PDF describes players typing 'O' in the chat or being asked out loud. let me see, I might be able to trigger it so a chat message is sent for each 'O' card but not the others.

Thanks to everyone for all the reports and suggestions. V1.1 was updated on the first post.

This version fixes the font error with Unity.

I also added a message when an O card is clicked with the number of users who click it and the total number of players. So the message looks like "O card submitted by X of Y players connected". No names are ever displayed and the counter of submissions is reset whenever the GM acknowledges the O card.

Thank you. I find your extension invaluable as well as Better Menus and am glad I can use both.

not yet. I have been working on another extension so this will be my next project after its done.

This is excellent, thank you.

I'd seriously suggest SmiteWorks consider integrating it into the core functionality of FG, actually.

Cheers, Hywel

For those who use this extension, I have begun development on some enhancements. I have fixed a few little bugs and I am adding a new record type to implement a RPG Consent Checklist. I learned a lot about how to do this sort of list thing in my Shops extension, so hopefully it will go smoothly.

I was thinking of creating this as just links and text so people could easily read up on all the sections from the PDF, but inside FG, but this is much better in that it actually, you know, *functions*. :)
Well done.
