    *****

    I have been using these for years and have come to rely on them for keeping my games flowing. Durable, easy to use, and easy to store (thanks to the included sleeves).


    Absolutely worth it.

    *****

    The next time the party druid casts Entangle (with its lengthy duration) on the small cadre of soldiers charging at the group and you want to know how to place the spell so that it targets enemies and not allies, and if the center of the spell is within range, and how far does an enemy have to travel to escape the effect, and can the spell be placed so that it affects an enemy but not the two adjacent allies -- then you'll know this product is worth the money. It's great for spells with more than a one round duration. You can easily drop it in place and that's that. No stopping to draw the radius on the battle mat or moving every mini to slide a paper template underneath, or holding a paper template over the minis while each NPC & PC moves. It's quick, easy, and effective.


    Completely worth it.

    *****

    I got this and the 2 cone templates. My groups combats have sped up considerably since I've received them! Completely takes the headache out of figuring out who is within an AoE. Between the 3 sets I got, most commonly used spell radius' are covered!


    Extreme useful but too expensive

    ***( )( )

    This is an excellent product that makes it quick and easy to determine effects on a combat map but not good value for money.

    You can not knock the quality or the role this product serves. Most spell/effect templates are cardboard or clear transparenacies that require your to lift up up map pieces or to guess by holding over the map. It just slips right onto the map over pieces no problem. It also supplies a wide variety of shapes for different effects which make it useful. I also have to report that the packaging of this product is a highlight as you can store the pieces in a resealable plastic insert that is punch with holes for a 3 ring binder.

    My biggest concern is cost. It most certainly is very over priced. You could attempt make this yourself with time and patience - out of cloth-hanger wire. But I do have to say that Steel Sqwire does an excellent job of craftmanship and choice of colours. The colours allow multiple effects to be laid on top of one another. A good idea if you can afford it.

    If you have the cash I would recommend you get this item and to look around as retailers and online shops have these items on special. I tried to get the steel one but was unable and ended up with the Black Template. Black is excellent and really sends out on the battle map.


    Spell Templates Save Characters!

    *****

    Just last night I used the Gamemastery Spell Template: Spell Radius Package in my home game. An evil fiendish gnoll master wearing a necklass of fireballs spelled certain doom for the party. That's when the wizard aimed a spell directly at the necklass. When the item failed its save, all the fireballs exploded. As a DM, I reached for the template. With ease and excitement I placed it down, revealing the wizard PC was just outside the range. 10d6 was quickly avoided without missing a beat of the excitement using the red Gamemastery spell radius template. I give the product 5 stars!

    At GenCon last year I showed Erik Mona my homemade 30' radius template and 15' cone template made from costume wire. He seem impressed and was interested. You're sitting on a gold mine here, Paizo!

    Sounds like you are sitting on a gold mine, MillerHero ;)


    3+ years and not only is there no 30' template available, the existing templates (i.e. this product) is no longer available.

    SOMEBODY is sitting on a gold mine if they would make these. Can't find them anywhere.

    I preordered something similar here: Preorder Roleplaying Spell effects

    You have to scroll down a while to get to the Roleplaying Spell Effect - Tokens. Look for the "Spell Effects - Generic PFS Template", if you want the tokens to be the same as in the Core Rulebook.

    I don't know when this will be produced or shipped, but I got some other items from Arcknight (the producers of said items and the spell effects tokens) and am very pleased with the results and communication with them, though the shipping did take some time

    Any idea when this might be available again?

    It looks like the company that produced those items is not in existance anymore (the website www.steelsqwire.com isn't available, other shops list their products as sold out or not available...).

    Paizo.com does still list the products for legacy reasons.

    -------------

    While not entirely the same product, I got what I linked above two years ago. The shop of arcknight is found here: clear plastic spell effect templates
    These generic spell effect are working quite good.

    Go to Etsy and search for spell template and you'll find many options. Some people will 3D print to your exact specifications in case they don't have something you want listed in their store (this was my case when I searched for a 40' radius template for Entangle).


    There's something better than those templates now: a special flashlight that shines colored templates directly on your battle map. No need to try to wedge that wire template between your minis anymore...

    Isn't that Oracle Sights thing still about a year away?


    I thought they were selling them... oops, sorry then. You'll have to wait a year or befriend someone with templates! :)


    The flashlight will be good for instantaneous effects, but the templates will still be the better bet for enduring effects like entangle or EBT, etc. I found the suggestion of Etsy to be a cheap way to hold me over...
