Instantly add effects for all racial traits, monster abilities, items and spells found in Volo’s Guide to Monsters!

5E Automatic Effects is a series of modules to aid Game Masters and Players by automatically adding coding effects in the 5e D&D ruleset on the Fantasy Grounds virtual tabletop platform.

These modules pre-build all possible custom and spell effects for your equipment, magic items, spell scrolls and spells, organized into separate modules for each book. Each book will be added to the 5e Automatic Effects bundle as it is completed, allowing you to purchase the entire collection at a 20% discount!

Although the 5e Automatic Effect modules can be used stand-alone, they were designed from the group up to work with the Equipped Effects Extension (created by SilentRuin and listed for sale on the DMsGuild). When used in conjunction, adding coding effects is as simple as adding an item to your character’s inventory - the extension handles everything else!

5e Automatic Effects for the Volo’s Guide to Monsters contains:

  • Effects for racial traits

  • Effects for items, spells and spell scrolls

  • Effects for monster traits, actions, legendary actions and lair actions that are not parsed correctly or need some extra information

  • Unique NPC statblocks to solve the namematching automatisation of equipped effects for non generic effects

  • Lighting and vision effects for features with ambient light

  • Organized into easy to filter groups for effect searching



Detailed instructions on how to use this module can be found on the FG Forums:

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
