Description

Summary

This extension is a total rewrite and a major upgrade to my original player journal extension. It adds a journal tab to character sheets so players can create their own journal entries. It also allows them to save stories, notes, maps/images, and pretty much any kind of record shared with them to their own character sheet for easy reference later. It offers filtering and searching capability. It also allows DMs to auto-add records to player sheets so no more will you have to hear the dreaded "Can you reshare the map?" or "Can you reshare that story entry?"


If you previously had my Player Journal or Character Sheet Tweaks extension active, this will auto-import your old journal entries. However, old story and note links will be converted to journal entries instead of links. But those links didnt actually link to original content anyway.

Watch the video for full details on all the features but here are some of the main upgrades from Journal 1

  • Supports all rulesets (though i may need to add some on request)
  • Can add all record types to the journal, not just notes and stories
  • Players can now drag any link from the journal to chat
  • Preserves links to original source, so upgrades to original will show in the journal
  • DM feature to add records to journal
  • Sorting and filtering
  • Journal time stamps

My original journal was a quick hack of the character sheet and notes that offered useful and solid functionality but was really not well thought out and could not be easily extended with new features. This extension required a complete rewrite of the journal and has gone far and beyond what it was originally capable of. That is why I have chosen to create it as a new separate extension instead of adding to the old one. However, I will continue to support the old one to deal with any conflicts or changes that may be needed to keep it functional.

Extension General Reminder

It is impossible to ensure all extensions work with each other, so I can't guarantee there will not be conflicts. Even with FGU updates, functional extensions can break. I can't guarantee this extension will always work, but I do my best to keep extensions updated ASAP. This is also an initial release and there will likely be some bugs I will have to work out in the first week or so. Especially with less common rulesets. So please contact me on my Discord if you find any issues.
