Computed Values

A few mathematical operations are available in a computed value. Using references and variables, it's a great way to make a dynamic character sheet, without having to use scripting.

Values types

You can create a string value by putting the value between double quote ("my string"). Here are the common rules of string values :

  • When using + between two strings, they will be concatenated : "hello" + " there" -> hello there
  • When using + between a string and a number, the number will be converted to a string : "you have " + 5 + " hp" -> you have 5 hp
  • When using any other operation between two strings, or a string and a number, the string will be converted to the number 1 : 4 - "general" -> 3

Mathematical operation

You can use + (adding), - (substracting), / (dividing), * (multiplying) in a computed value.

round(value)

Returns the value rounded to the nearest integer. If the value if .5, it is rounded to the higher integer (for example round(4.5) = 5).

floor(value)

Returns the largest integer less than or equal to the value.

ceil(value)

Always rounds the value up to the next largest whole number or integer.

avg(value1, value2, ...)

Get the average for all the values in the arguments.

sum(value1, value2, ...)

Get the sum of all the values in the arguments.

if(comparison, then, else)

If the comparison is a success, returns the "then", otherwise the "else". If "else" is not set, else equals 0.

Examples

Using a reference and a variable:

round(@dexterity/2) + $proficiency

Adding references:

sum(@dexterity, @strength, @constitution) + 5

Conditional value:

$bonus + if(@dexterity > 10, 8)
