What is It?

The 4AD Game Board is a one-page play sheet for Four Against Darkness which combines a "graph paper" grid with four character sheets, experience bubbles for tracking Minions slain and Boss/Weird monsters encountered, and a table for tracking room contents or other notes. The download includes both the recommended 20x28 grid layout, and a larger 30x42 layout.

How do I Use It?

Simply print out the sheet, generate your 4 characters, and play the game as usual, with the convenience of having it all on one page.

Each of the four character sheets contains fields for:

  • Name, Class, and Level
  • Current / Max Hitpoints
  • Attack & Defense rolls
  • Gold
  • Status/Ailment (such as Petrified, Poisoned, Dead, etc.)
  • Spells/Abilities
  • Inventory/Equipment
  • Marching Order
  • 3 bubbles for tracking Clues
  • 1 bubble to indicate whether or not the character is carrying a latern.

Two sets of experience bubbles are above the character sheets, for tracking Minions defeated (10 bubbles filled = 1 roll for leveling up), and Boss/Weird monsters encountered (5 bubbles -- at which point, your next Boss would be the Final Boss). Just above the experience bubbles is a small table, which you can use as you see fit -- taking notes, tracking room contents, or tracking your encounters by some other means.

@Michael : Correct, the # symbol does designate the marching order.

Hi, is the # symbol below the lantern for marching order?
Thanks for this resource!

That is correct! This question has been asked of me a few times, which leads me to wonder if it's not very intuitive, if anyone has any suggestions for improvement. Glad you're finding it useful, though, and thanks for the question!

Just looking at the sheet, I assumed the # symbol was representing that a character had used a bandage during the adventure.

Now that I see this, I guess the sheet doesn't actually have a spot for keeping track of that!

Anyhoo, gonna test out the sheet now, thanks!

Hi James, I don't recall rules for bandages -- is that in the Abyss supplement? Thanks for the heads up!

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.
