In compliance with a notice from the site, the Combat Spell Charts have been removed from the product. Fortunately, the core of the product is still allowed to remain for sale on DMsGuild.

The next document to be uploaded will be vanilla v1.3, with the Xanathar's Guide spell listings mingled together with the rest.

After that, I'm going to add separate documents for spell listings and summaries from the new line of magic spell books that I'm writing for this site, as well a document with a listing of the spells that I've written for the deity lore pamphlets.

Are you saying they made you remove the damage and stats from the spells? Because I had wondered why that wasn't a a part of the document.

The chart document had too many stats according to the site administration. I'm planning to add a new chart document though, with just the color coding and labels to gain an overview of spells by type.

The Artificer update is finished and I'm currently on updating the sheets for Xanathar's Guide.

I'm going to update the Vanilla to v1.3 with Xanathar's included, and add a separate sheets document for Xanathar's Guide.

I'm also going to update the charts, including the changes to EE Companion spells reprinted in Xanathar's Guide.

When I finish with the Artificer update that I'll be working on soon, I'll make sure to update the Deluxe version for this product with the new spells, and start adding those customized lists.

The Spell Cards by Christopher Sharp actually work well in combination with these cheat sheets for maximum convenience. Here's a link to his list of products. http://www.dmsguild.com/browse.php?x=0&y=0&author=Christopher%20Sharp

IT'S HERE!!! Version 1.0 of the Spell Charts have been added to the Extra files!

Also, I found out that someone made HQ spell cards for the SRD cleric spells and released them today. They look pretty cool so I'm adding a link to them to this post. It's worth noting that spell cards in general can be a great combination with the cheat sheets here, in terms of time-saving and convenience.

I really appreciate this work, as it is a real time saver.

The extra Spellchart with the saves and so on is pretty cool. These listed per class would be really great.

One additional thing: When referencing from whcih source book the spell is, the page number where the spell is to find, would be a really great improvement.

I've decided not to do page numbers for now, since I'm worried about possible future printings that change the page numbers by 1 or 2. Spell charts by class have been included in the new expansion though. Enjoy.

I've just uploaded a second prototype/preview for the upcoming spell charts expansion. New columns for Duration and Components, and "R" designates ritual spells in the spell level column. Sorry it's taking long. Past couple of weeks have been busy.

I should be posting the expansion with spell charts for the cheat sheets sometime next week.

Making the second chapter of Realmspace has been taking me longer than expected.

I like where the prototype list is going. I think you only need to have components and some way of designating rituals. Then once you finish the main list you could make lists for each class with a known/prepared check box next to the spells.

It would be great if the spell entries listed M,S,V, any components that cost gold (others don't matter) and duration.

Okay I'll add that to the spell charts expansion I'm working on. Probably going to be posted about a week or two from now.

Good content but, this is not perfect. This may need a damage roll summary or some little more details.

Okay I'll see about adding a new section that deals with damage-dealing spells. Perhaps a table with columns for damage dice, damage type, range, etc.

I've uploaded a prototype of magic spell charts that have damage dice info, range, etc. - color coded for quicker browsing for specific types of spells. Currently has only cantrips but full version will have all spells, plus separate charts for classes and schools of magic.

A better preview would be nice.....I'm not purchasing it for a table of contents, I want to see what you have actually done with some of the spells that will save time at the table

Okay I updated the Flash Preview to show all the way to the maximum allowed by the system. I hope that helps. Go to the last three pages to see how many spells fit per page as summaries - having a more compact overview in theory should help a player decide what spells they want to use or learn.
Customer avatar
Ryan B February 29, 2016 10:54 pm UTC
Its a little better, but the quick preview is so small, all I can tell is that there are titles in the blue shaded boxes (probably spell names?), then some info in bold, and some in regular.
Is this drag-n-drop where someone can select all the spells they know and put them on one cheat sheet?

You can indeed copy paste the summaries from the purchased pdf for your own personalized cheat sheet. The product provides an overview that lets you browse a lot of spells on a few pages instead of having to flip back and forth between a lot of pages from different sources.

I began working on this because I just wanted to have everything on a few pages instead of having to go back and forth while designing new spells or playing a spellcaster (it was annoying when I was brainstorming new spells for The Artificer). The free stuff online isn't being updated and the non-free stuff online is expensive (but offers content and character creator as well). These cheat sheets are kind of a middle ground where it is being updated (already more updated than the free stuff) and it is just the time saving stuff without the actual content but I'm offering them much cheaper than something like HeroLab. I also kept the spell summaries simple and clean so that I could minimize the number of pages needed for each section...See more

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.
