    Great teaching video. Also, I happen to know there are codes already done for every spell, feat, race trait, and class feature I did at the DMs Guild. Everyone SHOULD learn how to do these themselves, but for lazy people (ME!!) the codes are already done for everything except items. And that project is on the burner. The burner hasn't been turned on, but it's on it.

    I see the benefits of coding or just going out and buying these from the DMs guild. Zaccheus latest videos are good, been waiting for these for awhile...!
    Also, another community member and great boon for DnD5e fans are the codes that Rob2e sells online in a discounted code package as a Purchase-able FG supplement for 5e from Rob2e: http://www.dmsguild.com/product/2265...ate_rem=878507. I am glad to be surrounded by dedicated, helpful, and supportive community members! Long live Zac and Rob2e!

    Great work!
    The most important rules of FG - 1.) drag player portraits onto the Combat tracker!
    2.) Drag NPCs onto the Combat Tracker! 3.) Drag icons from the Combat Tracker onto the Map!

    I just purchased these and they are fantastic. It saves so much time for me though I really need to get better at figuring this stuff out - lol.

    A question then on part three. For DMG and DMGTYPE the targeting was set to Self, but for ongoing damage the targeting was set to Target. I would have expected all three to be set to Target as the damage is applied to the target, not to the self.

    What am I missing?

    "Target" for the effect is not combat targeting, it determines where the effect goes when it is applied - i.e. which creature the effect appears on in the CT. You want the DMG and DMGTYPE to go on the character that is rolling damage - as it will be applied to all of their damage actions no matter who the target is.. DMGO needs to be applied to the creature who will have the ongoing damage.
