Dear D&D Beyond Developers,
As a Dungeon Master using your software I have come across the following feature request that could potential aid a lot of fellow DM's run their campaigns in a more effective manner. As you know, D&D has a plethora of options to chose from when making new character sheets. This is based on the content owned by the Dungeon Master and/or the player. But because this is the only limiting factor a DM who owns SCAG for example would open this content to all the players in his shared campaign even though he may not want to. I understand that as a player one has the option to follow the DM's guidelines but not all players are proficient in navigating through all the books and their content. This leads to headaches as DM's will have to filter, explain, deny and delay the character creation process because the player is unaware of the sources he is choosing from. I propose the following:
To let Dungeon Master's control the content available in their campaigns through global restrictions placed on their campaign managers.
My Content < Campaigns < Create a Campaign
Enable a check box enable system of content allowed for that campaign.
My Content < Campaigns < View Campaign < Edit Campaign
Enable a check box enable system of content allowed for that campaign and a warning box to let the DM know their existing characters may have unassigned features due to changing this feature and proceed with caution.
This functionality is best left for Campaign Management only since players may accidentally restrict themselves and blame the software as a result. This feature could be an enhancement for Master Tier subscribers as potential revenue incentive for developing this.
