View Full Version : Introducing Crowd Sourced for 5E

May 14th, 2023, 05:39
Crowd Sourced for 5E will generate NPCs on the fly to help your GM handle those encounters random encounters.


This is not primarily intended to create NPCs for Combat but they do have sufficient stats to drag straight into the Combat Tracker including all Stats, HP, AC, Armor and at least one weapon attack.

These NPCs will have a 300px portrait and a matching token.

They will have two random backstory entries.

The GM can influence the NPC generation by choosing any or all of Locale, Level, Race, Alignment or Name. You can also add in additional backstory elements and they will turn into chatwindow speech elements ready to throw into the conversation.

The new NPC will be unlocked so that you can tweak them if required.

In case you dont even need the NPC sheet the main details will also be output to the GMs chat window (not to the players) so that you can keep up the role playing without even pausing.

Nice work as always. You may want to add a link to the forge page?

So, I noticed you can type in a name in the Name Field, but when I do then hit create, error messages pop up. Is this feature for future updates? Right now, I just create without entering a name, then change the name on the character sheet.

Also, this is a great extension, thanks, it helps out tremendously.

I have found the error and squished it. You will need to run the updater again.
