Foundry VTT - Installing the Compendium Packs

This guide will teach you how to install the compenidum modules in Foundry VTT.

Step 1 - Opening the Text File

When you buy a Foundry VTT Pack from this website, you will download a text file containing the URL (web address) of a compendium module .JSON file.

Copy the complete URL that is displayed at the top of the textfile.

Step 2 - Opening the Foundry VTT Software

When you open the Foundry VTT Software, click on the Add-On Modules tab at the top of the screen, and then on the Install Module button at the bottom of the screen.

Step 3 - Installing the Module

Paste the URL that you have copied in Step 1, into the box next to Manifest URL. Then press Install.

Step 4 - Activating the pack in your Game World

Open your game world and go to the Configuration tab (The little gear icon). Then click on the Manage Modules button.

Here you will see a list of modules that are available to be activated within your gameworld, including the one you just installed. Press the Checkmark next to the new module and make sure you press the Save Modules Setting button.

Step 5 - Adding items from the Compendium Module

Now you should be able to find your module under the Compendium Packs tab (next to the gear icon).

Open the compendium by clicking on it, and now you can drag and drop items from the compendium on to your map.
