Or is there some reflective lesser light applied?

    If just raw LOS type of lighting I assume it would go pitch black the second the light source is "out of sight" regardless of the fact light reflects off walls and such. Just want to make sure there is not some very cool tricks going on to deal with light not being simply "sight". I get its harder to do that sort of thing but just wondered about it.
    I will confirm once I get my hands on it to fully test it, but I believe that content revealed by the torchlight would remain visible, but that the player that gets left behind may find themselves sitting in the dark with the torch light visible up ahead. Our token locking and movement allows for movement through darkened areas and you stop automatically when you hit an obstacle that you didn't otherwise see. The tool also allows the GM to modify the amount of falloff for light sources so it doesn't have to be a sharp drop from light to dark.

    Looking forward to that feature!
    The past is a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back.

I'm still waiting for my version to play with and I'll be doing some experiments with it all over the holidays.
    Oh man, this is gonna be cool! I am excited to see how this works!

    That falloff sounds very cool.

    What happens when a character with darkvision closes his dominate eye and he is in torch light as well?.........

    This is a sarcastic question...... haha

    It should automatically revert to Cyclopean darkvision. The problem is that if the character stares directly at the torch light for more than a few seconds and then looks into the darkvision space, they just see colored spots.

    LOL. I think he's just winding us all up now
    If you need to contact customer support or if there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea here http://fgapp.idea.informer.com/

    This is looking amazing!
    I'm wondering - do those walls and lines have a "height" that you can set for longer shadows etc?
