So, I've had this stack of 3x5 index cards for some time with no real use for them. Now that I'm running SWD6 again, I came up with an idea: quick-reference NPC sheets. Instead of having a stack of character sheets or a list of stat blocks, I've come up with a printable template that can go on a 3x5 index card.

3x5 template.

Here's one that I just filled in.

I'm planning to make up some 5x8 variants after I get ahold of some 5x8 index cards.

And here are the 5x8 cards. They're a bit more useful if you have a recurring villian but don't want to take up much of your GM space with full-size character sheets.

EDIT: I forgot to include a space for Special Abilities. Here's the fix.

I'll see if I can figure out how to do that.

I think I prefer these over the 3x5's. Of course, that makes them roughly the same area as a regular template, just with different dimensions. My GM when I used to play D&D3.5 used these, but there was no possible to way to fit all that character info on a 3x5. With WEG D6 characters, it looks like it would work.

Nice Smile.

Personally I keep everything on my notebook. XLS file with all NPCs, tables, music, graphics to show. We only use pen and pencil for drawing a map during an encounter.

I use the 3x5's for "filler" characters, like thugs and the like. Hence the lack of damage trackers. For major recurring NPC's, I use the 5x8's.

Nice templates.

I've used 3x5 cards for minor characters: mooks, thugs, and spear carriers. I've handwritten the cards in the past, which allows me to use the card out to the edges. I'd like to print them out, but I don't know how to use all the space. For main characters I use an MS-Word template so that I can type in the info, store electronically, and then print as needed.

Thead necromancy activate

Since I never was able to locate fillable versions of these cards I made versions of my own. Which you can download from here.

This is a great idea. Even just jotting them down by hand on index cards wouldn't take long at all.
