25.0 Character Stats & Stat Types
Character Stats & Stat Types are used along with our other features, Abilities & Ability Types and Flair, to create character sheets that can be used within Chronica. They can also be cloned from other campaigns, if you have set them up previously, or check our Discord #campaign-templates channel to see if another user has one you can clone. You can find the stat admin section in the left navigation, towards the bottom, under Admin Settings.
Stats are used to add global variables to all characters, but with custom values specific to each character. (Ex: All characters track Health or Sanity, but they have different values per character.) You can also use stats to add additional profile info like Temperament, Hair Color, Favorite Food, etc. You can customize which stat types appear on which characters using Profile Templates.
Change the Order of Stats and Stat Types
On the main character stats admin page, your stats will be grouped into panels by their stat type. You can sort stat types by clicking and dragging the 'handle' icon to the left of the name. The order is saved automatically as you drag-and-drop. Use this same method to drag-and-drop sort stats within a stat type.

Creating a Stat Type
Before you can add any stats, you will first need to add a Stat Type. Do this by clicking the green "New Stat Type" button in the top right of the Character Stats admin page. Types allow you to organize stats into groups for your character sheets.
All you need for the stat type is a name. Click the "Secret?" toggle to hide this type and all stats within this type from players. This will prevent your players from seeing stats that should not be public.
Once created, you will see three buttons in the top right of the stat type panel. Starting with the orange button on the left, "Clone Stat Type and all its Stats", allows you to duplicate the entire stat type with all stats. This is useful for some games that have similar stats for NPCs vs Players, but you want to mark one type Secret to hide it from your players. This could also be useful if you have a basic Stat Type template that you wish to duplicate out for the rest of your stats.
Editing a Stat Type
The next button in the top right of the stat type panel is Edit Stat Type. Click this to open the modal where you can change the name, "Secret" toggle, or delete the stat type.
Delete a Stat Type
Warning: If you delete a stat type, all stats within that type are deleted, along with any data associated with those stats. This means any character or entity sheets using those stats will no longer see them on their profiles. To delete a stat type (and all stats it contains), click the small green pencil icon button labeled Edit Stat Type in the top right of the panel and then click the red "Delete Stat Type" button.
