Recently someone was running around the internet asking the question, “Hey, where can I find a cheat sheet for players? Something to help someone new to the game or even new to a class?”
My answer was, huh…no where that I know of, but there should be something like that. The DM has the tables on the inside of the DM screen and some great resources and sheets from Sly Flourish…there should be something for players too!
So we put some things together!
The idea is to provide a single page to summarize rules and minimize the amount of time you might have to spend at the table looking things up in books or on the online Compendium. Sometimes they might also help you better understand your options as well, which is good for everyone.
Here we are giving you the first two sheets, which I call “General” and “Skills”. Which we suspect are the most useful of any cheat sheets we could provide.
That said, the plan for the future is to give you cheat sheets for specific classes/builds. Some need it more than others and we certainly can’t have played every class to know which ones need a cheat sheet more than others.
So here’s the short of it! Enjoy the first two sheets. We have a class sheet in the works to give an example of how it can work. But we want you to tell us which classes/builds need cheat sheets the most. Also, let us know if there is anything in the current sheets that could be better. These are living documents (they’d have to be with all the errata, right?) and we’re willing to improve them.
If you want to take it another step further and you want to actually work on a cheat sheet to provide, say the word. It’s an easy way to contribute and if we don’t get some help it’s unlikely that we’ll finish all the classes before the next edition is announced.
For now Temporary Hit Points presents you with:
