Initiative Modifier

Hi there! New to DMing and I’m having a bit of trouble. I’m trying to set up a few creatures for a Dungeon Crawl Classics module, but adding a modifier to the initiative roll doesn’t seem to work.

i!(1d20+{Init})

I’ve set the Init stat to 2, but every time I test the roll, it just rolls a 1d20 and ignores whatever I’ve added. Is this not supported, or is my syntax just wrong?

Hi,
Your syntax looks fine. It should work.

Let’s see if we can brainstorm this:

  • Is the {Init} stat ignored or set to 0? (you can check by hovering the mouse over the result in chat)
  • Have you double-checked that the stat name is identical? Perhaps copy-paste again just to be sure?
  • Do you have another action that rolls initiative? (ie: stats with “i!”)

It works! Turns out I was misreading the roll this entire time. :sweat: Thank you for the suggestions!
