Overview: Posting Goals & Activity Rating ⭐

Posting Goals

Game Masters can now set up a pace for their campaigns. A campaign pace determines how many messages a day each user in the campaign should send.

  • Fast – at least ten messages a day per user
  • Medium – at least four messages a day per user
  • Slow – at least one message a day per user
  • No Pace

If a user doesn’t hit the posting goal of 1/4/10 messages day, we send nudge notifications at 4 PM and 8 PM to hit the goal.

Activity Rating

Suppose users don’t hit their posting goals regularly, their activity rating decreases. It increases again when they start accomplishing the posting goals—the app weights in mainly on a recent period. In case your rating is bad, it shouldn’t be that hard to get it back again.

Overview: Notes 📜

Both Game Masters and Players will be able to write notes in-campaign. You can use them to save info about a campaign or a character.

Notes don’t work cross-campaign. Each campaign has its unique notebook for each player and a Game Master.

Overview: Custom Rolls

Game Masters can now let players roll any number of dice and even combine them. You can use it for damage rolls, custom mechanics, or anything else.

Bugs & Performance

You’ll probably encounter bugs and crashes. Let us know about them at info@fireballrpg.com or in our Discord. We will try to eliminate them (with fire & coffee) as soon as possible. 🙌

Exclusive for Fireball Kickstarter Backers
