    FGC Player view DM Info

    I want to share an interesting little quirk we experienced last night in one of our games.

    With the ability to drag and create links to the record banner images and buttons, it is possible for the DM to create a link in a story entry that allows a Player to open the GM view of the combat tracker, party sheet, etc spammer links deleted
    The player can view the GM version of the combat tracker including HP, attacks, open NPC records, etc. But they cannot make changes, advance initiative, etc. I dont believe its a security issue as it requires specific steps from the GM and the player only gets view access, not the ability to edit. But perhaps crafty GMs/players can come up with a use for it. I created a video to demonstrate the process.

    Welcome to the FG forums.

    Yep, if the GM shares a link to their combat tracker then, yes, the players can access it. But, as you say, they have limited interaction as they don't have GM rights.
