DMs have their reference screens, why shouldn't the player have theirs?

If you're just getting started with D&D 5e then this is the crucial item to help you learn the game. If you're a seasoned pro then this may not be for you but it might help you remember all those little bits that you're forever hitting the books for.

  • Combat Progression
  • Combat attack types
  • Hiding
  • Cover
  • Movement/Travel Pace
  • Jumping
  • Conditions
  • Exhaustion Table
  • and more!

Print it out and study it while waiting for your turn!

Formatted to be printed out on one piece of paper (double sided) to keep your page count low and it'll match the standard character sheets from the game.

*Doesn't include Sage Advice material.*

Feedback welcome!

***Updated Oct. 30, 2016***

- Version 9: Landscape formatting added.

Nice job. Under "Surprise check": "Can't react until end of your turn" should read "can't use your reaction until end of your turn". Easier for new players if you use the official 5e lingo IMO.

Look great! but could the turn section better explain reaction and bonus actions? Those really cause my players trouble. Maybe something that shows the turn broken down into Move/Action/Bonus/Reaction.

Hi James! Thanks for purchasing!

This might fall outside the purview of the Cheet Sheet, but this link might help: http://rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/65187/action-reaction-how-it-works-in-5e-dd

Best of luck!

First of I love the improvements over the months

But I would like to see more for miniature play to help the players use a battle mat and using minis:

1. Under the DMG Page 249 is it possible to add something like "CREATURE SIZE ON SQUARES AND HEXES" picture
2. DMG Page 250-251 there is a picture of miniature cover on hexes and flanking so something like that
3. I would love to see how the different areas of effects looks on hexes and squares.
4. If possible I would like the Flanking, Diagonals and Facing rules on 250-251

Other:
On DMG PAGE 271-272 is it possible to add the optional Action Options?

Under Spell Casting with a spellcasting focus, would it be possible to also include "unless materials consumed or cost specified"? My players - and myself! - keep forgetting that.

Great work. Typo of "want" where "wand" should be in Spellcasting Focus.

Hi Devon, thanks for commenting!

What "charge attacks" are you thinking about? I'm not aware of any in the PHB or DMG.

Firstly let me say you've done some great work! This is going to be very handy for my group of new players. You've got a mistake in the 'Known'/'Prepared' spell classes though. Eldritch Knight and Arcane Trickster are both 'Known' spell classes.

Thanks Blake, I'll double check that!

(Excellent resource!) You can see in the Arcane Trickster description (PHB98) that they only "know" not "prepare" spells. You should also make a note that Arcane Trickster Rogues, Eldritch Knight Fighters, and Rangers can only use component pouches, not arcane nor druidic foci.
Customer avatar
Sean W February 07, 2017 5:14 am UTC
CREATOR
Thanks Anne! I'll make a note about the components. Good eye!

I've double checked the PHB and Tricksters and Eldritch Knights must prepare spells. The rule of thumb is this: Intelligence and Wisdom based spellcasting require preparation thru study or prayer. Charismatic based spellcasting is "known" thru will or devotion. (The exception to all this is the Monk's wisdom based Ki).

I feel like we're talking about different things here. If we're talking about in an 'In World' sense, then yes, seeing as Arcane Trickster and Eldtrich Knight are both "Wizard" style casters, where they learn their spells through study, you are correct.

But -Mechanically- they are 'Known' Classes, like Sorcerer, Bard, and Ranger. Look at their spell tables - EK (PHB75) and AT (PHB98) and compare them to the Ranger (PHB90), Sorcerer (PHB100), Warlock (PHB106) and Bard (PHB53). Each of those classes have a "Spells Known" column, just like the EK and AT. Whereas if you compare them to the Druid (PHB65), Wizard (PHB113), Cleric (PHB57), and Paladin (PHB83) they don't have the "Spells Known" column, because they have to 'Prepare' their spell list first from a whole bunch of spells.

As a side note: My players are loving this hand out, they pretty much use it every session, so thank you very much for the hard work!

Thank so for the reply, Blake. I will give it another look.

I'm glad you and your players are getting so much out them! It's the best motivator!

My suggestions:

1. Can you add the extra combat options from the DMG as an more options in a separate column and tell they are optional ask your DM?

2. Add the tactical move options on a grid from the DMG, do like a playing with miniatures column.

3. The point of origins pictures should show look how they look on a square grid and hex grid.

4. You also should sort spellcaster classes on how they learn the spells, since some of them have the entire spell library to prepare from like the divine casters, while others do not like Wizard.

Thanks for the suggestions, Emil! They may fall into more of a DMs screen situation, but I'll definitely give it a look.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
