This is all on athoynilima, a hero indeed. The only thing I noticed was instead of coding to find the character number, you could get the number directly from the character’s page which is beneficial for someone like me who usually can’t test on a web previewer It is indeed awesome! Character points are something I haven’t used much of but when I do, I’d love to place this in a story Once again thank you athoynilima and thank you to Farah for putting together this tutorial

Yes, conquer it

This is incredible! But how do you keep track of the overall points total??

I don’t think there’s a way to do that, so I either just play through the chapter or you can go ctrl+f and type in @CHARACTER + and just count how many of those there are

That won’t work across chapters though (or is there a way for it to do that?) Otherwise no fuss! Just gotta put a little # at the end of everything. But thank you!!

the same way as before. You simply count in each episode the max number of points reader could get. And add it manually So far I dont know about easier way

Oh my goodness, thank you so much!

Quick question: does this only work for point values between 1-50? Or are those just values you picked for the sake of demonstration?

PS: thank you for bumping and keeping this open lol

as far as I know it should show any amount of points. Dunno if there is limit of amount of points.
