    Halt! Player Safety Extension / X-Card

    There has been some recent discussion about how players can signal that the game may have taken a turn into topics or descriptions that are making them uncomfortable. This simple extension adds 2 small icons at the top of the chat window like this:


    When double clicked (I have set it to double click to avoid accidental usage) it will output a message to chat like this:


    At that point the GM and Players should evaluate the current scene and accept that someone is out of their comfort level and rework the story.

    The message is anonymous and not tracked in any way.

    This extension (or similar) is something that you should consider using when running one shots at conventions or for a group of players you dont know quite well. You might also use this extension when introducing a new player to an existing group.

    Great idea to make the message anonymous

    Damned, thank you so much for the contribution. With your permission, I'm going to translate the extension into Spanish and use it in my games. In Spain we call it X-Cards.

    This looks great!

    Like CthhulhuRol mentioned, you may want to consider naming this "X-Card", as that's a well known safety tool in the RPG community.

    I appended X Card to the title. I havent called it X Card as the mechanic is similar but not 100% the same.

    Great, that should do the trick, so users searching for "fantasy grounds x-card extension" will easily find this.
