Addons are smaller forms of content that are meant to enhance existing games. This might include card decks, maps, single encounter adventures, and adventure continuations.

You can check out our video tutorial on how to use Addons down below to help you get started quickly!

After purchasing your Addon, a purple button will appear offering the option to “Create Game with Game Addon.” Clicking the button will take you directly to the Create a New Game page and informing them that, after creating the game, the Addon will be automatically added to the game.


The Addon's Marketplace description will have overview instructions on how to include the Addon into the game at the top, the intended Character Sheet to be used with the Addon if there is one, as well as a link to the Bug Report Thread for the product.


Addons can also be accessed from the Game Details page. The Game Addons dropdown will have every available Addon listed. 


Installing Addons

Installation is simple; all you need to do is the following:

  • Expand the Game Addons section in the Game Details page.
  • Select the desired Addon by scrolling through the list or searching by name.
  • Click the Add to Game button. 
  • When you launch the game, your Addon will be available in-game. 

Adventure Addons will create handouts and entries under the Journal tab and new Pages in the Page Toolbar for included maps. Map Addons will create new Pages for maps.

Removing Addons

To remove any Game Addon content you've added to a game, simply remove the addon itself from the Game Details page. If you ever delete a Game Addon unintentionally, remove the Addon from the Addon List on the Game Details page, then add it back to the game again.

You can also use this process if you accidentally delete specific items in-game and need to re-add them. Please note that removing and re-adding a Game Addon will overwrite the previous version of the Addon and any changes you may have made.


A Bundle is a group of Marketplace items assembled together in a convenient one-time-purchase package. For example, the Volo's Guide to Monsters Bundle gives you not only the Compendium Expansion, but also an Addon and a Module version of the book's provided battle maps. When you're on a Bundle's marketplace listing, all the available content that comes with it will be listed under the section, Bundle Includes These Items:. If there is downloadable content (an image pack or a PDF for example), it will be available on the individual Marketplace item listing rather than on the Bundle's listing page. The access for these individual items will behave exactly in the same fashion as similar singular products.

Addon Troubleshooting

Accidentally Deleted Content in Addon

If you ever delete a Game Addon unintentionally, remove the Addon from the Addon List on the Game Details page, then add it back to the game again.
