Buff Cards

Buff Cards

ZIP File

Most spellcasters' main job, besides healing and dealing damage, is buffing - they enhance the prowess of the other party members or themselves. But once the buff spells start flying, it can be pretty hard to keep track of all these changes and additions to the PCs stats and abilities. Enter: the Buff Cards. These cards help you with that. They're a very simple concept, both in usage and design. Whenever a buff spell is cast on a PC or another creature, the GM need simply hand the player the appropriate card. The player then lays the card down in front of his character sheet. Each card not only reminds everyone which conditions apply, it also provides details of what the condition does. The result? Less time fumbling through rulebooks or trying to remember what's going on. And one less thing to worry about in combat is always good!

Colour Code

Deflection - Light Red

How to use these cards It's simple! Print them out on card (either in colour or greyscale - your preference; just pick the right PDF: -C for colour, -G for greyscale), cut them out and hey presto! It might be worth making a couple of decks, because often more than one PC will be affected by a given condition. Three or four sets might be a good number. There's a separate document for all mass buff spells, of which you'll need only one set.

These are a must have for any DM, who is either playing with players new to 3.5 or a large group. I have cut them out and Laminated them they are a great asset at the table [...]

BOught these to ease game conditions. Not overly impressed with them the spell cards would work the same as these. The only difference is the boxes you can check off, but then again use the spell tracker card and you have your boxes.<br><br> [...]

Bless and spells like that that effect more then one person should have been put into the Mass Buff Format also. As it is if I want to print Bless for all of my allies (to have it handy so they remember the effect) then I have to print that page 4 more [...]

A few quick notes. The fronts and backs of Stone Skin (stoneskin?) and Transformation are swapped. Oops! Prayer is a mass buff, not individual. It would be useful if you included non-spell buffs like Bard Songs, as well. [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
