D&D 5E – Fillable Monster Cards

Download your free fillable cards HERE.

Top Dog Games makes an excellent set of monster cards that they call “Stat Trackers”. I bought a set and I love them. They come with several blank cards that you can fill in by hand and you can buy more. You can find their site HERE.

And you can find then on Amazon HERE.

I made a PDF form-fillable version and I thought I would share. There are three cards on one 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet.

I filled in One card as an example (a Guardian Naga doesn’t really have a swim and fly speed). On the original cards the Monster name is repeated at the top and turned upside down so it can be seen by the players when you fold the card and hang it on your DM screen. I’m not doing that so I made it a blank area where I can draw or insert an image of the monster. Even if I was using it as intended, I don’t always want the players to know the name of the monster, so I could put the image upside down if I wanted to do that.
I made the bottom two large text areas as editable text areas so you can change all, or any part of the text to bold, italic, underline, or a different color, or change its size. Also, the ability modifier is calculated for you when you fill in the ability score.

Enjoy.

 

Winged Fiend – A New D&D Next monster

I  created this monster for my Fires of Hell module. It is included in the module but I thought that I would also post it here. You can send in a LOT of these little guys to give your players a hard time. Individually they are laughably easy to kill and do a tiny amount of damage, but in large groups they can be quite nasty.It helps if you have a lot of 20 sided dice (I know that I do). Once you figure what you must role to hit, roil your handful if to-hit dice (up to 16 Wing Fiends can attack a single opponent) but you don’t have to roil damage because each hit inflicts only one point of damage.  I had to add a smaller size category to those included in the play test rules.

Enjoy!

Inspired by the D&D Miniatures monster cards, I created a Word .DOC file to use as a template for creating and printing Monster cards to use as a playing aid during combat. It is formatted to print a single 4” x 6” card. You can download the file here: Monster 4×6 card
