Besides direct integrations into existing VTT systems, there are also various general tools that support online gaming. Our first general tool is presented below.
The White Eye
Whether you are playing The Dark Eye via Discord, Foundry VTT or are already back to playing at your table. The Discord Bot Das Weiße Auge (The White Eye) helps explore the world of Aventuria and enhances your gameplay! Discord players have the possibility to import their Optolith Heroes and perform checks for talents, spells, liturgies and combat with simple commands. If you get hit despite a dodge or parry, you can calculate combat results, Astral Energy or Fate Points directly in Discord and track them in the integrated Character Sheet.
Gamemasters have full access to their group’s heroes and can also run hidden checks or regenerate 1d6 for everyone after a good night’s rest. Master tools like the easy to use name generator or random master characters will put the world at your fingertips and help you prepare your adventures or come up with things on the fly.
If you need to spontaneously look something up in the middle of a session, DWA is there for you. Whether it’s the rules wiki, one of the 1500+ game cards or converting years, currencies and units of measurement – you can do everything with one simple command.
