Features to improve your game

Roll buttons

Rolling dice is what role-playing games are all about. You can create roll buttons that do exactly what it says on the tin: allow you to roll dice. Behind every roll button is a roll string that determines how many and the types of dice that should be rolled.

Roll buttons can be named or have a label so you can have button that says Strength and will roll 1d20+5 when you press it.

Roll buttons serve an important function in making Universal sheets very powerful for creating sheets for any system there is out there.


Creating tables can be powerful in organizing the contents of your notes. When you create a table you get an unstyled table. You can then easily add more rows or columns, remove them, or change them to header rows or header columns.
