    In case you don't already know, there is a hidden message spread among the art in the core rules. I believe the message was updated for the latest printing and is contained in the new art assets, which are labeled in the image library as 8th Printing. It requires some decoding, which is most of the fun.

    Cool stuff! Thanks again for all the work. One question: is there a way or could there be a way to make mass NPC saving throw rolls for NPCs that are on the combat tracker? My players were facing 20+ beastmen the other night and an Invoke Patron spell covered the whole lot of them. I ended up just rolling 20d20s but if it were automated it would be much easier to assign effects after the fact.

    I believe if the player targets them all, and then clicks the save button for the spell, it will roll saves for all the targets. If the “remove on miss” option is enabled, it should un-target any NPCs that make the save.

    You're absolutely correct. I can't believe I didn't realize that mechanism works the same as the 5e ruleset. Now I feel dumb; delighted but dumb. And it adjusts the DC to the spellcheck rolled; awesome!

    It’s probably a commonly overlooked feature. If a player targets before the spell check, it will auto-roll saves if the check is successful. Useful as long as the spell doesn’t have different saves based on the roll result...

    The base spell check detail has fields for last and best rolls. The last roll field is where the save DC comes from. Best is just for fun.

    Working on the next update.

    I am adding fields for melee/missile attack and damage modifiers to allow an easier way of entering those lucky roll modifiers. You can find this in the Weapon Meta dialog box linked in the Attacks header on the Actions tab...

    Also planning to clean up the skills list. The blank field will look similar to the spell check roll summary, but it's blank in the screenshot for now. I am going to add a class bonus field separate from the miscellaneous bonus for clarity. If you prefer the current skills list, let me know. I want a more streamlined look personally.

    Just loaded up the latest DCC ruleset and was paging through the Reference Manual and got "Database Error: Invalid file xxx" messages throughout the book. I think they are on the new assests... we don't appear to have come through.



    NOTE: Spoiler to hidden message maybe?

    These are the images that did not come through on my update.
