Virtual Tabletop Layout


The gametree is where all your nodes will be stored. Nodes consist of a variety of objects from text files, folders, miniature databases, and macros. Many people use the gametree to store character sheets which store character information to make rolling easier.

Features Node: This node (titled OpenRPG+ 1.7.1 on most applications) is installed along with another demo node. This node is important as it has s amples and templates for nodes which you will use to build your own. If at any point you lose the node you can right click the game tree and select "Insert Features Node" from the menu.
