As I work on the various Easy D&D sections that make up the complete package of resources that I am planning on, I will be occasionally adding to this website showing the progress of each module.
Although not an integral part of Easy D&D, nor needed in a regular D&D campaign. A player cheat sheet that explains the basic options during combat was unnecessarily hard to find online. I didn’t even want something pretty; just a list. A list of what can be done during combat. So many of my students struggle with lateral thinking and without direction can become bored and frustrated.
- Use An Object
And so the ‘Combat – What Can I Do?’ Cheat Sheet was born. A simple, easy to follow and understand guide of actions available during combat. Not exhaustive, nor fully descriptive, but enough to help as a dropping off point for decision making.
The basis for the cheat sheet was another slightly more complicated version I found online (see above) and it’s far more elaborate older brother ~ Link. Both great for your average campaigners, but far too wordy for Easy D&D!
My first mock-up was based on this info-graphic, emphasising certain points and consolidating others. I also implemented InPrint Widgit Symbols; for those who struggle with words.
After ‘finishing’ the Race & Class templates and moving to Illustrator. I worked to bring the Combat cheat sheet inline with those works, adding stroke, refining the colour palette & vectorising the Widgit symbols. And so, I think I’ve pretty much finished this part of Easy D&D and created a useful and usable 5th Edition cheat sheet.
