Hello all,

I have started development on a Foundry VTT module which will allow you to import some material from Realm Works into Foundry.

The module requires that you generate an RWoutput file from Realm Works (not RWexport, but RWoutput).

The contents of this file are then processed by my module to generate journal entries in a single compendium within Foundry VTT. Each time you use the tool you can import into a different compendium, or the same compendium. If importing into the same compendium, then existing entries with the same title will get replaced.

The module can be found at https://github.com/farling42/fvtt-import-realmworks

Note that due to the restrictions of what Realm Works will allow to be stored in the RWoutput file, it is not possible for you to transfer your RW-purchased modules using this method.


I have been testing this with an 8 MB rwoutput file which contains 400 topics.



- Each topic imported into its own Journal entry within the named compendium.
- most normal snippet types
- simple pictures
- statblocks (inline within the journal entry)
- HL portfolios (inline within the journal entry)
- links between RW articles/FVTT journal entries.
- child topics listed at the end of the parent topic's entry.
- (optional) inbound/outbound links listed at the end of a topic's entry.


- create Scenes from smart images
- create Actors from HL portfolios
- support more snippet types
- read RWoutput from a file instead of having to paste into browser window
- display annotations and gm_directions in a distinct way

I'm sure this is totally surprising and unexpected, but an 800MB realm is a no go with this.

A small fraction of the contents of this file crashes the browser (chrome) itself just trying to paste. Not surprising in the least of course. A 16MB file worked perfectly.

Where do images get imported to? I host on AWS so want to make sure I keep an eye on storage.

I look forward to seeing this progress!
