Extremely useful at the 5E game table. I printed a few on cardstock and leave them lying around when we play. Even as long as we've been playing 5E we'll usually find several instances in each game session to consult the chart. Great quick reference. Well done.

Hi, is there any chance to make an editable pdf for this? I'd like to translate this into a version in my language.

That is a great idea. Unfortunately, I can't do it for two reasons:

1) I lost the original editable file, so I'd have to recreate it from scratch at this point to make any changes.
2) I wouldn't know how to make an editable pdf even if I did have my original file. My technological know-how is limited.

You can probably open it in Adobe Illustrator and edit it. (I lose my original files all the time and have resorted to this more than I care to admit.)

I have Adobe Acrobat Pro DC and when I open it I can just hit the Edit button.

Hi Duy, I just used Acrobat Pro DC to edit the file and translated from English to Arabic.

I would love to give you my translation (Arabic), and Duy or anyone else who do their translations should send you their copy. Yours is great and simple, I love it! Contact me @ d20arabia (twitter) and I'll share you a link or email for it.
I'm very interested in doing the same to some of your other products if that's alright with you. [no credits/royalty is required]

I have a lot of work on my plate, but I'll definitely comeback to this and make it editable at some point if this interests you.

Excellent resource for DMs to present to new players. If you have a homemade or DIY DM screen put this on the player's side.

Really nice. Make a second page with conditions so that I can laminate it and use it as a reference card and money will flow your way.

Nicely simplified! However, there is no REACTION option.

True, but reactions are usually triggered by another creature's actions, not your own. And a lot of the time, reactions don't even occur on your turn. Thanks for the feedback!

I'm super gluing it to my DM screen. For a more constructive critique, I actually really like the soft pink/ muted red color palette. It makes the whole read seem more pleasant and open feeling; furthermore, I greatly enjoyed how you elaborated on both, "Your turn's main action," and, "1 INTERACTION."

This a great flowchart for your players as well as DM's to make sure the game is moving smoothly.

Thanks, William! If you wouldn't mind also saying so in a review that would be great.

Rules Edition(s)
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.
