Starter Set Companion

Suggested Price $2.00

The Starter Set Companion is a gaming aid designed to assist the DM when running the adventure in the fifth edition Starter Set. The Starter Set Companion includes two documents: 

The Dungeon Master's Handbook gives advice for new and old DM’s alike, giving them the tools they need to help make their campaign easier to run. It also includes a set of Tokens to allow the DM to help visualize combat encounters with the various NPCs and creatures found in the adventure. 

The Encounter Sheets document includes combat encounter sheets for all the creature based encounters where combat is a likely outcome. These help the DM keep track of initiative whilst keeping all the creature stats needed to hand; saving the need to flick back and forth through the adventure book to find the information needed.

If you like what you see, keep an eye out for future products coming this way. 

Please also check out the Essentials Kit Companion, also available here on DM's Guild.

Fantastic! A really good resource for helping manage the starter campaign (particularly if you're relatively new to the DM role). The combat tracker & statblock is great. The index of the quests and associated page numbers is too. Definitely wo [...]

Very helpful, takes a step back initially to give the broad strokes of D&D and the adventure, super helpful for new DMs, then goes on to detail encounters and strategy to run LMoP successfully. I home-brewed some companion materials to help me run [...]

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.
