About this mod

Adds aura effects for D&D 3.5E, 4E, 5E, Pathfinder 1, and Pathfinder 2

Permissions and credits
FG Aura Effect
This extension is built to accommodate auras of any kind. Paladin auras, or even spell auras (such as spirit guardians). This is a relatively complex extension and will require some explanation and examples.

Compatibility and Instructions
This extension has been tested with FantasyGrounds Unity 4.0.10 (2021-02-04) and 4.1.0 (2021-05-15). It works with the 3.5E, 4E, 5E, and PFRPG rulesets. When using with versions before v4.1.0, you must have token locking enabled (and you still may encounter some issues).

5E users should check out GKEnialb's Token Height Indicator which makes the auras height-aware.

Not currently compatible with SilentRuin's Polymorphism Extension.

AURA Effect
AURA: 10 friend; Aura of Protection; SAVE: 5
This will add a 10 foot aura around the person who has this effect.
Allies within 10' will receive an effect "FROMAURA: Aura of Protection; SAVE: 5".
The bearer of the AURA effect will also receive its benefits.

The following aura types (used for AURA: 15 friend) are allowed:

  • friend
  • foe
  • all

FACTION() conditional check
To further limit bonuses/penalties/conditions applying to the bearer of the AURA effect, there is also an additional conditional type "FACTION()".
AURA: 10 foe; Test; IF: FACTION(foe); ATK: -5

The IF: FACTION(foe) ensures that the penalty to attacks does not impact the bearer of the AURA effect but only their foes.

The following faction types (used for IF: FACTION(friend)) are allowed:

  • friend
  • foe
  • neutral
  • faction
  • notself

You can also use the "!" operator in a FACTION conditional to reverse the results:
AURA: 10 all; Test; IF: FACTION(!foe); ATK: -5
This will add a 10 foot aura around the person who has this effect.

Anyone within 10' will receive an effect:
FROMAURA: Test; IF: FACTION(!foe); ATK: -5
Although the effect will be visible on all actors within 10', the penalty will only be applied to people who are not specifically foes.

Option for disabling aura effect chat messages
"Silence Notifications for Aura Types" can be set to a faction to hide their aura apply/removal chat messages.
