Physical artifacts are wonderful at the gaming table.  From dice to counters to sheets, we as gamers love to have tools and items to help us play more effectively.  Spells are one of those things that we have to look up constantly and it slows the game down.  So what if you have cards for your spells?  You could go through your deck (spell list) and select the spells you prepare for the day, with handy information on duration, casting time, effects, and material components.  

You can buy pre-made cards, but they aren't cheap and you can't customize them with house rules or make your own special cards for abilities or spells.  What about items? What if you need several Healing Potions?  What if more than one person splashed Bard and you need more than one Cure Wounds card?

Make your own.  It's easier than you think.

There is a FREE program called Magic Set Editor that lets you make your own Magic The Gathering cards.  The problem is that you need a template specific to 5th edition DND, with the right fields, icons, and backgrounds...

That's what you are buying here.  This is a Template for Magic Set Editor that lets you make your own 5th Edition DND cards.  Even better, I've already done the work on over 140 spells and items in the CORE rules and am including them as well.  See the sample PDF below for samples of what cards you can make.  You can then print as many as you like.

These templates include:

  • Themes for all PHB classes
  • Various card colors, including black, red, green, yellow, blue, grey, purple, and teal, with gold & silver trim
  • Specific card types for Spells and for Items (general and charged), with custom fields.

Note: These templates work with Magic Set Editor, a free program that allows you to create your own card sets and export or print the card images.  YOU MUST INSTALL MAGIC SET EDITOR to use these.   

Please View the README in the zip file for full instructions and Version changes.

IMPORTANT COPYRIGHT NOTICE:  You are buying the templates for these files only.  NO card text is being sold.  You are responsible for entering your own card data.

This is astonishingly good! Gotta ask though, any chance of adding a line attack symbol for the spell cards? Having all the options except for that one messes with my OCD a little xD.

Either way amazing product.

Really glad that these are still around after having made use of them back in my 4e days. Appreciate the gift that's provided for purchasers of this product.

If I may ask, is this missing a template for a class or two from the PHB? Noticed that the monk and barbarian classes are missing, however fighter and rogue are present. Even though they are not necessarily spell casters.

Monk and barbarian don't cast any spells in core PHB, so I didn't need to make any card templates for them.

Not entirely sure. I use sleeves so I don't have to worry about backing, and it helps keep the cards stiff (I slide a poker card into the sleeve then slide the printed card on top of that). My recent development time was spent making the new Pogs/Tokens product.

Yes, edit the Style files (in each of the mse-style folders) with a text editor and set the font for each field to what you wish.

I absolutely love these! I have been looking for a way to make properly sized item cards without too much hassle.
One thing though, would it be possible to add a printer friendly option in the background/border choices? Maybe a white choice so that you can get all the information but you dont have to spend so much ink on printing. It would really help considering ink isnt too cheap these days. (Unless I am missing something)

I cannot get some of the card sets to load up. I downloaded them, put them into the MSE file, and some, like the paladin load up fine, but some, like the ranger and wizard, do not. Any suggestions?

Hey Joseph. Not sure what the issue is. I just double-checked the link in the Readme file and downloaded the .mse-set file. When I double-click it opens fine. https://i.imgur.com/JGalWRF.jpg

Perhaps you can try re-installing? Make sure the files are in the right place. If you still have issues, email me at: daniel@educatedgamer.net We'll get you squared away via hangout or something.

I think it would be great if you could add images for the backsides of the cards, which would add a very nice finishing touch to the card

Just bought these and the templates look great, but I did not get the 140 spells and items you made from the CORE rules. All I got was the data, the fonts, 2 word docs of blank templates and the read-me file. Thanks for help figuring this out and cheers for making these

They are in a link via the Readme document. Download each separately and open them AFTER you have installed MSE and the templates. They should be called Druid Spells.mse-set, warlock spells.mse-set, etc.

Version 3 Changes:
* Updated Readme.html to include link to YouTube instructional video
* Changed the Top Left icon in circle to be a level selector, to make spell levels easier to see at a glance. Action icons weren't as helpful.
* Tightened up all background frame graphics to create more editing room. Lessened the curvature of the trim.
* Moved Duration, Range, Description fields up a bit. Enlarged Description field slightly to reclaim more editing space (approx 10 pixels).
* School - Level at bottom changed to School - Domain. Allows classes with bonus Oath, Circle, or Domain spells to indicate the source next to the school.
* Tags field just below the spell name for things like Concentration or Ritual. I still tend to use (R) in the title and a different background color for rituals, but it's now explicitly stated on the card if desired.

Just a couple comments:

The default dropdown menu for spell school has "bard" and "cleric" listed for some reason and not "abjuration" or "conjuration".
And things that would be nice to add:

* a visual indicator for spell level.

* a visual element for concentration / ritual tags, whether a text dropdown or an image.

* a separate place to list material components, maybe a small box below the components dropdown.

* a text box below the spell name to fill to indicate if it's a domain/origin/circle/pact spell.

It's very simple to make these changes by yourself. All you need to know is here: http://magicseteditor.sourceforge.net/node/5678
I would recommend a text editor like notepad++.

Hey Kevin. I've incorporated all of your changes in Version 3! Thanks for the valuable feedback. For material components, I widened the field so it should support more text, like "V,S,M* (1,000gp)". See change notes above, and download the new version 3 zip to see.

Hey these templates are great. Is it possible to change the language on the templates (like school, components...)? I'm a first time german dm and would love to use these with the german version of the game.

Ja, das ist durchaus möglich, allerdings nur mit etwas Eigeninitiative. Man muss dazu nur die entsprechenden Einträge in den Dateien "game" und "style" ändern. Ich empfehle dafür das Programm Notepad++

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.
