Features

  • Easy adding of new plugins (simply drop them into the "plugins" folder)
  • Create your own Plugin-Sets (combine various Plugins to use them toegether for a specific system or group)
  • Save/Load scenarios (Add all the resources you need for your next gaming session and save it as a “Scenario”, so you can load it easily)
  • Generic Plugin: ImageViewer (manages a list of images and shown them on a 2nd screen, for example a projector; Also has the capability of drawing onto a picture and move tokens around on it, especially usefull for maps, as it also includes the possibility of using a “fog of war” to hide the parts of an image/map that players should not yet see)
  • Generic Plugin: Note Editor (manages a list of text files)
  • Generic Plugin: Sound Player (manages a list of sound files, for example mp3s, and plays them with one click)
  • Generic Plugin: Generic Character Manager (displays a list of characters in a tree view with a sumary to the right, can be used for any system and is available for PCs and NPCs)
  • Generic Plugin: Video player (can play videos on a 2nd screen)
  • Generic Plugin: Dice roller (rolls various dice - suprise)
  • Generic Plugin: Campaign Journal (a journal, a little bit more comfortable than a simple text file, where you can read single entries and search for texts)
  • Shadowrun 4th Plugin: Full Character Viewer (manages a list of characters and displays a pretty complete character sheet for each of them; available for pcs and npcs)
  • Shadowrun 4th Plugin: Overview Character Viewer (like the full character viewer, it just doesn't use a complete character sheet, instead if shows an overview with the most important (configurable) skills, attributes, etc.)
  • Shadowrun 4th Plugin: Combat Tracker (keeps track of combatants, health and initiative)
  • Shadowrun 4th Plugin: NPC Generator (creates single npcs or groups of npcs based on templates, for example if you need to create a small gang on the fly)
  • Shadowrun 4th Plugin: GM Tables (for starters, simply a list of tables for combat, etc. - later perhaps an interactive version that calculates modifiers)
