This is a great product, but print instructions should be included. I was frustrated when I printed them and all templates were smaller than they should be. On looking through the comments I noted the suggestion to ensure 'actual size' was selected when printing. This really should be mentioned in the product description or on the product itself. Saves a lot of wasted paper. That being said, once you get the printing done, you have exactly what you need.

TL;DR- This product is EXACTLY what it appears to be, but good luck with sizing the pieces and printing them.

This product is just as beautiful as it looks in the display picture, however, I could NOT make the pieces come out to scale no matter what I did. I only have a standard printer with standard paper sizes, and, therefore, I simply couldn't resize or edit the product enough to make it fit to scale on the standard 1x1 inch square D&D mat. I also want to mention that the lines and the cubes DID turn out pretty well! However, the larger (20 ft) radius was impossible to print properly without editting the PDF, and the 60 ft cone had the same issue. If the creator did a bit of adjusting, these pieces could be designed and rearranged in order to accommodate standard printers.

Perhaps this is user error, and I'm humble enough to admit that. However, my wife and I both tried to resize and edit these PDF's for about 2 hours and couldn't manage to print them to scale. I think it's important to note in the product descriptions that this product may need additional work to size properly. As they are, the descriptions point toward a functional and easy to use product, and that isn't what I purchased. The product didn't even come with instructions on how to properly size or troubleshoot sizing issues. Save your money and create your own PDF.

I do want to thank the creator for inspiring me to be more crafty and create my own pieces. Their work really helped me to create my own work, and I'm quite satisfied with what I cooked up.

I'm sorry that you had such difficulty printing these. Other people have also noted having difficulty printing these out, even though I did design them with the standard home printer in mind (I even tested it on my own printer). I am glad that you seem to have found our own solution, but I will try to find the time to create a printing setting guide that comes with the product Depending on the program you are using to print, check for any settings on sizing and margins. Margins should ALWAYS be at none (to print this and my other products, as I keep standard printer limits in mind when creating these), and sizing should ALWAYS be 100%. Sometimes sizing settings like "Actual Size" (like in Adobe PDF). It is also possible that there are proprietary settings on the printer's program changing things that you or I would be unaware of. I hope this helped.

These are great! Have used them a couple of times now in a new campgaign I started running recently.

The only improvement I could recommend so far is to add a 20 ft x 20 ft square (I haven't gone through all of the 5e spells yet to check if all others are covered, but the 20x20 is one we ran into quickly, so I made one myself)

The way the 60' cone was laid out, the right side is backwards, so the design won't look like it does in the preview. That's my only issue with the pack. Everything else looks good.

Edit: Thanks for the updates, chief!

Thank you very much for bringing that to my attention, I completely missed that when lying them all out! I have made some adjustments and uploaded some new files: - Fixed an issue with the 60' Cone. - Added Scissor Icons - Made cut lines less apparent to increase quality in the final product.

I use both Theater of the Mind as well as a grid, depending on the tactical options available to my players. When on a grid, these are a godsend.

A nice-looking set of effect templates for tabletop RPGs. The templates print up nicely and are colorful, and a few paper size options are available. My only gripe is that some of the templates, like the 30' radius and 60' cone, are only available to print in the wide sized file, when both could have fit onto pages in the letter sized file. Overall a very good product for the price.

These are really good! Bought them this morning and printed them on some poly-blend stock which will make them indestructable. The different color circles makes for a nice reminder on what the effect is. Thank you!
