    Campaign Game Statistics

    What are your thoughts on having a semi-automated way to build and display game statistics for each of your campaigns?

    Background
    I've considered building something like this for quite some time and one of the recent discussions about dice rolling high or low for players prompted me to build out at least part of it. My thinking centered around having the capacity to point a tool to a campaign folder, have it extract all this information from the chatlog and also player data, images and other campaign information from your campaign files to post into a nice looking campaign portal online. In order to flush this out more fully, we'd have to invest some additional development time and that would most likely mean some form of cost.

    1. Would this be the sort of feature you'd be willing to pay an annual subscription for?
    2. Would doing something like $10 every 6 months be reasonable?

    This is something that would fall to me for development, so it wouldn't impact FGU.

    It currently supports 5E but should be able to work for other d20 based campaigns with minor tweaks. Supporting other rulesets would require additional development but should be possible.

    Here is a link to our weekly D&D Storm King's Thunder statistics:

    If you already have a campaign record set up in the game calendar section here on the forums, it is for a 5E game and you are one of the first 3 people to upload your chatlog.html file and provide me a link to your campaign, I will set up your campaign as well and give you a link. If you have a non-5E game, you can upload your chatlog.html as a zipped file here too and I might be able to run that through my script as well -- but no promises.

    This looks awesome ddavison!

    Question, I have my campaign on the Game Calendar ( https://www.fantasygrounds.com/calen...ex.xcp?id=2503 ) but I'd like to not put the connection info there as my game is full, not recruiting, and playing with friends at the moment. (We've been going for several months now, we just dont really use the Game Calendar here for tracking, we have our own Discord server) How else could I go about sending you a link to my campaign/chatlog? Would private message be ok?

    Edit: Never mind, I see it doesnt show the connection stuff even after I turned on the "Accepting Players" option. Heh. I'm silly.
    Well I suppose I'll just add to this post the chatlog you asked for, and hope :P

    I never did answer your question, but, as for myself, I'd definitely pay in the ballpark of $10/6mos, seems totally fair and reasonable. I'd love something like this!

    YES PLEASE, but from what I know about the cheap data costs in AWS DynamoDB or Redshift or Google Firebase, I think any subscription cost is too much. Perhaps limit to Ultimate license holders?

    It does look interesting. I would rather pay once for it though than paying a subscription cost.

    It would certainly be good data to use against the PC's telling them. .see you roll a lot of critical hits.. You just don't like when they hit you!

    I'd sign up for something like this and the cost you quote would not be a deterrent for me.
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/
