Rivet is a browser extension for Chrome and Firefox which links Foundry and the 5eTools website, allowing 5eTools to push content such as creatures, items and the results of rolls to Foundry VTT.
Rivet requires you to have a Foundry game session open in another tab of the same browser as 5eTools.
Rivet allows you to quickly import content such as creatures, items and more to Foundry VTT directly from the 5eTools website.
Rivet will also send rolls you make in 5eTools to Foundry VTT.
The result of the roll inside Foundry and the result in 5eTools will be different!
