Description Edit | History

A simplified version of the 3rd Editon/3.5 Dungeons and Dragons roleplaying game, designed as an introduction to roleplaying, but is - in essence - a boardgame not unlike HeroQuest.
Includes 16 pre-painted miniatures from the D&D Miniatures range (but aren't randomized - each box includes the same 16 miniatures), and the rules are very similar to this game.

Also listed on RPGGeek as Dungeons & Dragons Basic Game

10 D&D 4th Ed combat flow chart
This is version 2 of flow chart I made using Inspiration to help my middle school students learn the combat sequence in 4th edition D&D. I hope others find it helpful! I like it because it puts all the basics of combat onto a single A4 page. Please let me know if there are any mistakes or if you can think of any improvements.

1 Loot Tracker v 1.0
A sheet for your P.C.s to track the loot they find. If your games are anything like mine there are times when people either forget who got what, had too much beer to write stuff down, think they had something when it was actually someone else... etc.... This is a page for your PC's to track what loot goes where and who is carrying what. It is meant to go along with the DM's loot distribution sheet. I will upload this soon and will provide a link here when it is.
