View Full Version : 5E - Sentient Items

August 1st, 2022, 18:46
DM's can now bestow wonder onto the party in the form of Dynamic Items. The items contained in this extension and module, with more modules to follow(which will sell for 500 coins), will work with the extension to allow the DM to bestow upon the party items that modify their description. This is the sentience hiding it's abilities until one "worthy" of it's abilities comes around.

What this means is this extension scans the character sheet for the classes and race of the PC. If either class and/or race matches the requirements set forth by the item, it leaves that section of the description available for review. Otherwise it deletes that section and displays only a basic description of the item.

Extension now takes into account character level, not class level, and Alignment in the form of abbreviated text like LG for Lawful Good or CE for Chaotic Evil. Neutral should be TN for simplicities sake.

:: DM NOTES ::
These items do not require attunement as the item attunes to the user. Any Dynamic Items made by yourself should NOT be attunable.
Any custom items made by yourself must come from a module and be identified.
User made modules can be updated in session by simply reloading the module after exporting, for quick fixes.

The extension can be found here (https://forge.fantasygrounds.com/shop/items/731/view).
A video showcase is available here (https://youtu.be/g7M2fdwTEl4).

Self-updating Items. The items will now reveal their abilities automatically when the character makes the necessary changes without the dm needing to drag a new item to the inventory list once the requirements are met!

The DM will need to reset the item one time after this update if they are already using a Dynamic Item.

Sorry about the long break from maintaining this extension. I had school and another massive project on my hands, it's still not finished but I've earned a break after 9 months of development. For my break, I've returned to FGU to try and fix my extension. Which is exactly what I have done. This extension has returned and been more optimized from it's prototype phase. Working on a new update to follow this one soon. It should be a nice one!

Sentient Items has been relabeled Dynamic Items. Dynamic Items has undergone another update, this one makes Dynamic Items fully compatible with Advanced Effects. So that any descriptions containing effects coding will extract that coding and pass it onto the combat tracker by way of Advanced Effects.

This will be very useful for my campaign, I have weapons that evolve as the characters level up, this will simplify things for me.
