{{objectid.statblock}} (or {{}} for short). Include the statblock of the other object

Include contributions

{{objectid.contributions}} (or {{objectid.conts}}} for short). Include all contributions of the other object

{{objectid.contributions?contributor name}} Include the contribution to the other object from a specific users

Include object status

{{objectid.status}} (or {{objectid.conts?block}}}). Include the object name and a colour-coded block showing the status of the other object

{{objectid.status?summary}} Include the status as above but with the first 6 lines of the object notes included underneath

{{objectid.status?name}} Include the object name, styled according to status

{{objectid.status?status}} Include the name as above but also show the status as text afterwards

Object IDs

You will need the object id to reference another object as a transclusion. This can be found at the bottom of the details panel when the object is selected, or you can click other objects (with keyboard modifiers) to automatically enter formatted ids.

While editing notes, you can click objects with the following behaviour

  • Click will add a link to the object
  • Ctrl + Click will add {{objectid}}
  • Ctrl + Shift + Click will add {{objectid.statblock}}

To type the syntax manually, object ids are displayed at the bottom on the object details, underneath the journal and next to the ‘campaign log mode’ button. You can copy the id from here.

Invalid references or those pointed to deleted entries will appear as {objectid} in blue to indicate the invalid reference.

This syntax can be used in the main notes, statblocks, and consumable descriptions.

Include the main notes from one object in another

To include one object in another one, simply use the custom markdown syntax of {{objectid}} on a line by itself in the position you want the other object’s text to appear. When displayed, the entire object text will appear at this position inside a blockquote. It will also include a link icon in the top-right corner of the included block with a link to the original object.

Include statblocks

Statblocks can be included in other objects by using {{objectid.statblock}} (or {{}}} for short).

Include contributions

If sharing is enabled on the campaign and there are users with the contribution role (see Sharing your campaign and choosing what other people can see for more information), you can also include contributions via transclusion by using {{objectid.contributions}} (or {{objectid.conts}}} for short) which will include all user’s contributions at this point. To include just a single user’s contributions, you can extend this by using {{objectid.contributions?contributor name}} (the name must exactly match the name set by the user).

Include object status

The basic syntax of {{objectid.status}} (or {{objectid.conts?block}}}) can be used to include the object name and current status. This will show a block that includes the name, styled according to status, and a status indicator.

Status transclusions can be used by themselves or as groups to give an ‘index’ of referenced objects, e.g. NPCs in an organisation or tasks for a quest.

Use {{objectid.status?summary}} to include the status as above along with the first few lines of the object notes.

To just show the object name, styled by status, use {{objectid.status?name}}. To also include the status as text after the name, use {{objectid.status?status}}.

Name styling

All objects names trancluded with status are styled as follows:

  • Not Yet Encountered / Hidden (normal)
  • Encountered / Known / Active (bold)
  • Destroyed / Disbanded / Dead / Complete / Ended (strikethrough)
  • No Longer Relevant (strikethrough + italic)

The styling closely matches the styling in the object lists.

Shared Campaigns

Transcluded notes on shared objects will appear when the referenced object is also shared. If the transcluded object is not shared, it will show as an invalid references as above.

Objects can be placed within hidden sections to be visible only to the campaign owner.

Hidden sections within referenced objects will also be hidden from those viewing the shared campaign.
