Default create Chart of combat actions

Hi,
I've created a chart of combat actions, their prerequisites and reminders on how to use them. I think this is helpful when playing. How can I upload it so SJG can have a look at it or for others to download?

I've not found a way to add attachments to posts here. Your best bet is to post the document to a website and provide the link here, so that folks can download it.

Should an automated character sheet track combat actions (and hidden spells?)

It's easy enough in PDF javascript to update adjDX for hits, track turn number, enter hexes moved and engagement status to fill a dropdown list of allowed actions, etc.

Question is how close this comes to unacceptably automating the entire game.

I'm still not seeing where the "automation" is coming from. What you've described sounds more like an "update-able/editable" character sheet in digital (PDF) format...unless this PDF has Alexa built-in and eavesdrops on the conversations at the gaming table???

You know how webpages use Javascript? Same goes for PDFs.

I just updated a PDF form we use in the office to lookup medical providers on the government website.

I had to write a plugin in C++ to handle full text searches of thousand page documents though. Javascript just isn't fast enough for some tasks.

Yes, we call those "pdf forms" at work also. I still don't see how it's "automated". Are you asking if we're interested in a "pdf form" character sheet?

Wait, don't answer here. This really should have been it's own thread. I think we've crapped on this one enough.

Apologies to OP.
