ShadowHaven:Chummer Setup

From ShadowHaven
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Chummer is a useful tool that comes with a bit of a learning curve. Because the Chummer developers cater to such a wide audience, the software itself is capable of handling a variety of different play styles, house rules, and options.

This page will help you set up Chummer to play nicely with ShadowHaven's rules.

User:Teksura has created a helpful video showing how to set up Chummer, and install the amends file File:ShadowHaven Rules.zip. If you're not familiar with the program or how to install an amends file, you can see the video here
