Toolkit13 System
How to navigate Foundry's interface

Getting Started

To get started, you'll want to get familiar with Foundry's user interface. Characters can be made on the Actors tab, but see the image below for a quick run down of what those tabs in the right sidebar are.
In order from left to right:
  1. 1.
    Chat Log - Where all chat messages and power card rolls are displayed.
  2. 2.
    Combat Tracker - Track combats and combatants. Scenes can have multiple combats, and each combat will have its own escalation die.
  3. 3.
    Maps/Scenes - The scenes where you can place maps and prepare for sessions.
  4. 4.
    Actors - Where your custom characters and monsters are created and stored.
  5. 5.
    Items - All item types that can be placed on actors, such as Powers or Magic Items for characters or Actions for NPCs.
  6. 6.
    Journal Entries - Journal entries where you can store notes that can later be placed on scenes.
  7. 7.
    Rollable Tables - Your custom rollable tables.
  8. 8.
    Music/Playlists - Foundry's music player that can be used to control your playlists.
  9. 9.
    Compendiums - Compendiums of content in your world. The system comes bundled with compendiums for each of the classes, races, and monsters in the Archmage Engine SRD.
  10. 10.
    Settings - Settings for Foundry, the Toolkit13 system, and your modules. The system includes a handful of settings that you can use to tweak it, such as average recovery rolls and a colorblind mode for accessibility.
To make either a character or monster, go to the Actors tab and click the Create actor button. You'll then be prompted to choose the actor type you want to create, a Character or an NPC.
