  • (2020-09-15) Ron Power: I really love this app, but I do have one issue. For some reason the little map icons in the Table of Contents for the various adventures with map support - they do nothing. They just bring up an empty hoverable box. Clicking on them does not take me to the maps, it usually just takes me to the chapter head. Not sure why this one feature is not working for me.
  • (2020-07-06) griff9999: Makes dnd beyond better. Honestly just got it for the character folders but was surprised and pleased by the other features.
  • (2019-03-12) Dackota Johnson: Very nice plugin that lets me stay within Chrome where I have just about everything else I need as a DM anyways. My only suggestion to have it be a complete combat tracker would be to add initiative similar to health where it can auto roll for it or I can set it.
  • (2019-02-11) Very awesome, suggestion if you have time: When adding monsters, it's super easy to click them in, but if you want to delete them, you have to click the cog and hit delete. Maybe an X right next to the cog to just quick delete the monster? Otherwise, awesome work!
  • (2019-02-02) Patrick DeCastro: I was so impressed with the maps with linked references. I was disappointed that only a few campaigns had linked content. But I look forward to future additions. I hope this hasn't fallen by the wayside in lieu of other feature updates. Curse/fathom should consider making this an official feature in DDB. I just picked up LMoP when I noticed the linked references and it made me want to pick up more adventures just for that. As a new DM who started with digital content, it's a great extra to have these references to minimize the necessity of having to flip back and forth through pages, search PDFs and search for keywords in the midst of an adventure.
  • (2018-09-13) D K: My only complaint is that not all the maps have been linked. Other than that, it's great!
  • (2018-08-30) Adam Apperson: Sweet Saranrae! Linked map locations!? Yes, please and thank you. Character folders? Phew. Great job!
  • (2018-07-06) Wyatt Mann: A lot of work and love has been applied to this easy-to-use extension!
  • (2018-07-06) Kornstalx: The map overlay tool is invaluable as a DM! So much info at a glance.
  • (2018-05-24) Eran Arbel: It's incredibly useful when managing monsters in combat. I just wish if it could have a note section so I could write in some tactics ahead of time.
  • (2017-12-22) Matt DeKok: Love the ability to sort characters into folders! Very helpful!
  • (2017-12-18) Kappus117: Fantastic, simple application. Retail space of my notebook paper is extremely valuable as a DM, and having this application track their HP has been an epic boon. Ran into a small glitch, but I've reached out to the developer and received a response / working resolution within minutes.
  • (2017-11-28) Oliver Barker: Sparse, but very useful. The reconfigured print layout is excellent for preparing a pen and paper game. The encounter tracker is most handy for impromptu gaming. An amazing addition would be a function to print all the monsters in an encounter as a batch, along with an initiative tracking sheet. I don't know if that would be possible. Monster images on printouts would be nice too!
  • (2017-11-13) Cory Owens: + Clean UI + Runs quickly - Can't add arbitrary lines (for instance, if I just want to track the HP on a door or other terrain feature, or some monster made up on the spot) Would also appreciate initiative tracking, but that might clutter the UI.
  • (2017-10-21) Ana Mesquita: Really nice features, pretty good to manage encounters getting the best possible usage on DnDBeyond during a session.
