Hello OP forums,

Apologies if this has been requested or if it is already a feature and I just don't know where to look but as a GM, I would really love a way to view my campaign(s) as my players would see it without having to make and invite another account. Does this feature exist I am just missing it?

    It does not exist at the moment, but is an excellent idea in my view. I can get it added to the developer board and see if they bite.

    All the best,

    In the meantime, would this work? Create a free "dummy" account and add the account as a player.

    It might be tedious to log between accounts, but it might be something that will allow you to do this.

    Most of my player-viewable content is also publicly viewable, so just logging out and viewing as a guest gives me most of the answers I have when I need to take a look at something like this.

    Granted, that's just what works for me. Your mileage may vary.

    I'd lke to expand this idea: 3 views, GM view, player view, public view, all as a simple toggle for the GM. I've done the logging back and forth (typically by using different browsers and alt-tab), and its a pain.
