    Temporary Increase in Ability Score/Stat

    Fantasy Grounds Unity

    Looking for a solution to ability score increases.

    I know effects are coded in the [Actions] tab.

    What is the proper syntax on the character sheet to accomplish a potion of strength that increases the Strength score by 1d4 for 10 rounds?

    [NOTE: I prefer a more automated solution versus hand-keying the change if possible, whereby the effect disappears without GM interaction.)

    What ruleset? Depends on that You could use STR: 1d4, but then the d4 is rolled every time (when the die expression is supported by the ruleset), otherwise roll the d4 manually first and then apply the corresponding effect for it

    Nylanfs: I see that the CTRL-Scroll feature does indeed increment/decrement the score (handy), yet it involves more mental energy to remember/track rounds to resolve the end of the effect.

    Kelrugem: I am using the DnD 5E ruleset Dungeon Master's Guide. (I am used to 3.5E , but have decided try the 5E.) The STR: 1d4 would be nice if it worked for me.

    I clicked on the effect - Chat window PotStrengthChat.JPG

    Yet the Strength score was unaffected, though the Combat Tracker reflects that the program recognized the button was pressed.

    Roll a strength check with that character, does the roll include a bonus?

    Effects do not change the stats in the sheet, but the results related to it (you will see some effects notification in the chat) But I just checked, 5e does not allow dice for STR effects So, roll the d4, and then apply STR: N where N is either, 1,2,3, or 4 (assuming the d4 is not rolled every time?)

    LordEntrails: (I have chuckled over your name!) I have included the snip that reflects the effect listed in the Combat Tracker did not have an affect. Strengthcheck.JPG

    However, the response from Kelrugem (THANKS!) provides this is a known state in the 5E ruleset.

    (NOTE: The 1d4 increase in this instance is a one time raise - no fluctuation in strength until the duration ends.)

    I am VERY new to Fantasy Grounds, but I love what I am seeing. The support has been great!

    You could also create custom effects in the effects window; one for each bonus that the players can then use after rolling to see what the bonus will be. Or just make one that you edit the bonus for prior to applying it.
