    Exploration Mode

    What do people think about maybe altering the party sheet (possibly in the order tab) so that there is a way of assigning the various exploration activities to the players. Maybe drop down list?
    "The small town of Swampspittle is a charming reminder of how Faerun use to be.Plague victims crawl eloquently down it's dung filled streets; greasing the way with puss from thier buboes.While at least two children a week are burnt as a changeling in the handsome market square. The town boasts two taverns, one humourous dwarf and a shop that sells little things made of straw."

    I think you would have to implement it using temporary effects but normally those only get evaluated in combat tracker during a round so not sure how it will work.

    I think having a list of the available roles to assign each party member would be great (maybe adding a second for those who get one automatically like always searching while doing another activity) to help the DM keep track of who’s doing what. Currently I write it in a note and keep it minimizes but this would help make it much easier for me when I’m running game

    Yeah I was more thinking of using as a way to remind the DM and players what mode they are in; like party order

    I think it's a good idea. But I wouldn't use a drop-down list. The usual approach in Fantasy Grounds for non-static data is drag-drop (love it or hate it, it's a very flexible way of catering to expanding data, both custom and official). So, I'd envisage dragging an action (still to be fully developed) to a PC in the party sheet - on the first page or the marching order page or somewhere else. This will fill out the name of the activity plus provide a link to get more info.

    Sounds amazing!

    Drop-down list wouldn't work in some cases anyway - for example high level Rogues have a feat that allows them to have two exploration activities at once.
