My idea is essentially a way to make choosing skills in the heat of battle faster and more user-friendly.
Instead of trawling through menus and tabs, imagine entering battle, pressing a very easily pressed hotkey, like spacebar, and a new overlay comes up, one which basically looks like cards / post-it notes with all your abilities and spells that are currently available to your character in that moment.
That way the workflow would be:
Roll initiative > Press spacebar > Click on one of several full-screen ability cards that pop up
Roll initiative > Sift / scroll through actions > Sift through bonus actions, etc > Lose track of where things are > Click back to spells > Get frustrated at not finding the thing you want
I think this feature could be especially good for new players that are feeling overwhelmed by the sheer amount of visual information the character sheet presents them with.
Thanks a lot, your service is fantastic and I look forward to seeing how it evolves over time :)
