Do I really have to use it

Yes, of course!


Pls update and add Permissions

The plugin is super but not up to date. Pls update the Plugin, add permissions. My user cant add his Characters. Only Admins show the Button in menu.

Pls add new places for Raids, Discription and custom fields. This Plugin can be much more and i hope, u read my review. Great work. pls dont stop.
