9.2.1 Adding an Item

Add an item using the green "Add Item" button at the top of any inventory or shop. You can also add an item directly into a container by using the "Add Item" button next to that container.

On the Add Item screen, you have two options at the top represented by tabs. You can create a new item from scratch using the "New Item" tab, or click the other tab labeled "Copy Item" to copy an item from your Item Library.

Adding an Item with the Form

We offer a multitude of fields for item tracking. Enter an item name, quantity, value, weight, and description. Track as much or little data as you need for your style of play. Note: Currencies must be set up in order for the value fields to be visible. If you are a Game Master, you will see an additional text box under description for Game Master Secrets.

You can also select a container for the item from the dropdown. For more information on containers, see: Inventory Containers.

The Item Tags checkboxes are used to label items for various circumstances such as "Consumable" or "Quest". These labels appear on the item cards to help you visualize what items are for more quickly.

The last section of the form is where you can add an image to your item. If you are on a Knight, Monarch, or Deity tier, you have access to our Image Library. The image library has a large selection of high quality images you can choose for your items to make your inventory look amazing! We keep a preview video of our image library on this page, but please note it does not always contain the most updated selection: Image Library Preview

Copy Item from Item Library

If you are copying an item from your item library, you can click the small orange "Quick-copy" button on one of the item cards to make an exact duplicate with a quantity of one. You can also click the item image to open the details modal to read the description. With the details modal open, go to the Copy Item tab and use the Quantity and Inventory dropdowns to transfer a custom quantity to the selected inventory.

Quick-add Multiple Items

Another option at the top of your inventory pages is a green button labeled "Quick-add Multiple Items". This opens a condensed form that allows you to record up to five items at once. This is useful if the GM is reading loot quickly, and you want to add items to identify later. The condensed quick-add form allows you to set a quantity, name, and description. Any fields with the name left blank will be ignored.
