When we say homebrew in the sense of 5eTools, it is more than you might be usually used to. Homebrew content effectively means any content that has not been published by WotC. This does not only include content you, or a random person on the internet, have made. It is also licensed content by 3rd party publishers, such as Kobold Press or Mage Hand Press.
You can find all availiable homebrew files in the Homebrew Manager. From there, just click the blue “Get Homebrew” button and choose the files you want. The list is populated from the Homebrew Repository which you can visit directly and see all the source files.
Be aware that when adding a homebrew file to your site, you get a copy of the file at the state it is at the moment. You will not get any possible typo or functional fixes/additions.
It is a good idea to periodically delete and re-add your homebrew choices.
Simply choose a valid
.json file to upload. Be aware that a valid 5eTools json file is also a valid json file, but the opposite does not have to be true. So you cannot use any json file you export from places such as Roll20 or Foundry.
A direct raw link to the
.json file is required. If using Github, for example, you need to click the RAW button at the top right corner.
This will work
This one will not!
Depending on the type of homebrew you want to convert, you will have to do more or less manual work.
For the rest of data types, you will have to write the
.json files manually. While this might seem daunting at first, the following pages will give you the necessary information, tools and guidance to achieve it.
