Quick Reference Cards using Magic Set Editor


Pathfinder First Edition General Discussion


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I wanted some handy, printable reference cards for creatures and stuff for my game, so I decided to fire up Magic Set Editor and fill in the necessary text.

The result! (Ignore the houserule stats such as DEF and AR.) The 'casting cost' icon in the top right is its hit dice.

I think it turned out nicely. More complex creatures may require two cards.


I suppose that's one way to do it. XD Let us know how it works out for ya.


I did this for my spells in my very first D&D 3.5 game. I was playing a Beguiler, which is a "fixed list" caster that gains -every single spell known on their list at that spell level- whenever they achieve a new level of spells. Since the GM was equally unable to keep up with knowing what the heck my giant pile of spells known were/did, the cards were quite helpful to keep my abilities straight in my head and let the GM quickly reference all the details of any given spell I cast.


Yeah, I've done that with a sorcerer a couple of times, using Perram's Spellbook.


You might like the Ander's Power Cards skin for MSE that he designed for 4E.

Our group absolutely adored it while we were playing 4th. Between those and Alea Tools' magnetic markets , they made 4th a much more enjoyable experience.

Given the right character, I'd absolutely break out the Ander's power cards again for PF. An Occultist, for instance - a card per school, mental focus invested, resonant power bonuses, etc.


If I were playing 4e, that would be useful. I'm not using cards for spells at this point, just creatures. I'm GMing. Making spell decks for GMing would be a pointless endeavour.


Delightful! Had a friend that did the same for shadowrun.

How did you get it like that? Do you have the template to share?


That looks like the Full Text style to me. It should be in one of the sets.
