    When can we expect to see new features for the DM subscription like init tracker, treasure tracker, etc.?

    Hi there!

    We don't have any timelines of this that we can share at this time.

    Are players able to make changes to their own characters? And if so, can this option be turned off?

    Also, the characters I am using in the campaign are ones from 'My Characters', will edits made to them within the campaign effect those characters outside it. i.e. can I keep templates of the characters in My Characters that don't change - or, should I just copy those characters and keep separate 'templates'?


    Many thanks!

    Hi there! 

    Yes, players can edit their characters and that can not be turned off. 

    The characters in "My Characters" are just a list of your characters, they are the same characters used in the campaign, just in a handy list for you to find. Any edits to them will be universal. If you want a "clean" copy of that character that won't change when players make edits, you'll need to make a copy of that character, however that copy will take up a character slot.

    Not sure if I should file this feature elsewhere, but here are a few related suggestions:

    I get that a DM cannot actually "lock" players from making changes to their characters, but there are certain things I would like to know about. Maybe a change summary feature or alert when either of the following has been altered on characters in my campaign: original (rolled) ability scores, skill proficiencies, background. I don't need this in detail, just know that a player has altered something. This is mostly to keep players honest: e.g. "The DM will be sent a summary of the changes you have made to this character." This will kill any funny business.

    Extend the notes feature or add this: Basically a session log that supports attaching a photo. We often end a session with pawns in position on a battle map. Snapping a quick pic and posting it with a date/time stamp and a short post summarizing the session would be awesome. Kind of like a blog. Perhaps players could comment on posts too.

    Have you considered an encounter (creatures and NPCs) management feature? I cannot tell you how many times I have thought it'd be great to search for a creature and either bookmark or add it (or multiples) directly to an encounter list and have it total the XP for me. Same thing with items/equipment. It could be integrated into the content display, similar to custom wishlists/baskets work on e-commerce sites.

    Let me know and I will break these out into separate feature requests with more clarity.
