About this project
Check out our Early Bird Special pledge level which ends in a few hours! Save money by backing now. :-)
Check out our Codex, Cards, Counters, and Chronicles tools which can transform the way you run 5th Edition fantasy roleplaying games!
The 5e Gamemaster Toolkit is a series of tabletop game aids to help you run well-organized, dynamic roleplaying games. The 5e Gamemaster Toolkit has four parts:
Gamemaster Codex — A 36 page 8.5x11” booklet that is meant for use during the session to build adventures on the fly. It is loaded with tools to create quick non-player characters with stat blocks, generate locations, determine loot such as treasure and magic items, and construct interesting combat encounters with no advanced preparation.
Gamemaster Cards — This deck has cards to track Initiative and basic stat blocks, Conditions such as ‘Blinded’, Rules Summaries for Death & Dying, Healing, and Grappling, and Role cards to equip players to assist the gamemaster in various ways.
Damage Counters — These special plastic tokens are sized to fit under standard 1 inch miniature bases. This allows you to use our Stoplight Damage™ rules to track hit point damage. Run large scale encounters without the hassle of tracking hit points for each creature by hand.
Chronicles Booklets — These four digest-sized booklets are meant to be written in. Malloy’s Almanac is a fantasy calendar with 20 sets of encounter tools. Imaginarium is an idea log with blank dungeons and encounter worksheets. Session Planner includes gamemaster tools to plan game sessions. Game Diary has player tools to log adventure notes.
For those who’ve bought our Dungeonesque RPG products, you’ve already seen our approach to quick adventure design. This new product takes some of the most useful Dungeonesque Gamemaster’s Guide content and adds new features for on-the-fly games. Not prepared for an adventure you’re running? The Low-Prep Adventures section has 10 instant adventure types to jump start your game. Need an encounter or event to toss players after they’ve ignored your pre-planned adventure ideas? No worries, the Codex has tools for everything from hexcrawls to tavern brawls.
We’ve intentionally kept the product small (around 36 pages) so you can quickly find the tables you need without halting the game to wade through 250 pages of dense text. Here is a tentative list of the Codex contents (these might change a bit based on consumer feedback and layout constraints):
People — Names, Quick NPCs, Quick Character Stats, Occupations, Reactions, Traits Places — Hexcrawls, Tavern Names, Weather Things — Quick Treasure, Quick Magic Items, Selling Gear & Magic Items, Costs for Food, Drink, & Lodging, Costs for Services Adventures — Low-Prep Adventures, Adventure Generator Encounters — Wilderness Encounters, Urban Encounters, Something Happens, Plot Twists, Quick Encounter Design Rules — Converting Early Editions, Healing Potion Effects, Mass Combat, Quick Chases, Complete 5e Rules Summary, GM Rules Reference Example of Interior Layout GAMEMASTER CARDS
This deck has several types of cards to help gamemasters run the game.
Put the Initiative cards in plastic protective sleeves, and use wet-erase pens to write on them. One side tracks Initiative and the most critical parts of stat blocks. Arrange them behind the GM screen or in a stack to keep track of turn order.
Key Character Stats On One Side; Player-Facing Name & AC On Reverse Round Tracker cards let you track the end of a round and effects which might expire in a future round.
If you’re not using a gamemaster screen, you can use our add-on Card Holders to stand them up in view of the players. Write the creature’s name on the player’s side of the card. If you want, you can write down the Armor Class of opponents and let players track if they’ve hit the creature or not.
Conditions scards track the 5e conditions such as ‘Poisoned’ or ‘Stunned.’ Rules Summaries present rules for Death & Dying, Healing, and Grappling. Hand these cards to players so they can quickly know the rules without turning to a rulebook.
Role cards help the gamemaster recruit volunteers to help during the game. The gamemaster selects things they want help with and puts the cards out on the table. Volunteers take a card which lets the GM know which roles still lack volunteers. Here are the eight role card descriptions:
1) Turnmaster — Run initiative on behalf of the GM. Consider alerting players in advance when they are up next in the turn order. 2) Battlemaster — Manage miniatures, game tokens, and terrain on the battlemat. Could include marching order and coordinating who is on watch at night. If asked, track damage taken for GM-controlled creatures. 3) Rulesmaster — Have a copy of the core rules and be ready to look up rules as questions come up in the game. 4) Soundmaster — Use devices to play background music that is thematically appropriate for scenes and battles. 5) Grubmaster — Coordinate meals for the group which could include ordering take-out, Keeping track of menu orders, and picking up food. 6) Logkeeper — Track game-world time and the locations to which characters journey. This could include calendar dates and drawing maps. This could also include names of players who attended. Give a copy of your notes to the Chronicler (if you have one) at the end of the session. 7) Quartermaster — Track rewards characters receive: money, treasure, and group treasure. Includes knowing where you keep group treasure. This could also include experience points. Give a copy of your notes to the Chronicler (if you have one) at the end of the session. 8) Chronicler — Take notes about the story during the game, and collect additional notes from the Logkeeper and Quartermaster at the end of the game session. After the game, write up an overview of the game session and publish in a blog post or other medium. We’re still working on the art for the deck back cover and deciding how we will package the cards (tuck box versus plastic case), but we will share pictures and details on that before the Kickstarter ends.
These special plastic tokens are sized to fit under standard 1 inch miniature bases and allow you to use Stoplight Damage™ rules to use tokens to track hit points. Run large scale encounters without the hassle of tracking hit points for each creature by hand.
Ever have a dozen Orcs on the battlemat, and have trouble keeping track of each creature’s hit points? Logistics of tracking a large number of minis can be challenging. Damage Counters make this easy.
It is time to set a course for adventure in your 5th Edition and Pathfinder RPG games with a spectacular set of pirate plunder and aquatic adventure on the seven seas and exotic ports of call with the Pirate Campaign Compendium from Legendary Games!

Starfinder: Dead Suns
Chapter 1: INCIDENT AT ABSALOM STATION

You all have received a message from a dwarf by the name of Duravor Kreel, a member of the Starfinder Society. In this message he says he has a offer for you that if your task is successful could bring you notoriety with the Society itself. He wants you to meet him on Absalom Station. After you've arrived he'll show you around the Station, get settled in & help with your membership into the Society. Why he picked you? The dwarf has heard some things about each one of you off the net & knew you'd be perfect for the job. After your arrived, he'll explain the job in more depth. He excited to see everyone.
Now, where or not, your a native of Absalom Station, you've decided that you needed some time away where it's a vacation or a job you're returning on the shuttle, Okimoro. A non-descriptive shuttle like any other that frequents the docking bays of the Station. In particular, Docking Bay 94 ("what a piece of junk".........) on this day.
The brightly lit docks of Absalom Station are abuzz with activity as travelers bustle by, preparing to board or disembarking from starships bound to or from any of dozens of worlds. Brash and swaggering star pilots, scurrying ysoki mechanics, and expectant colonists mingle with enigmatic kasatha mystics, hard-faced asteroid miners, imposing vesk mercenaries, and more, creating a microcosm of the abundance and variety of life in the Pact Worlds. New arrivals meet friends, loved ones, or business contacts, and are whisked away into the humming activity of daily life on the vast space station.
Docking Bay 94
Beyond them, ground crews tend to the docked ships, and dockworkers in mechanized cargo lifters load and unload freight and luggage. A sharp tang of ozone hangs in the air—a byproduct of electrical discharges from the docked ships—but underneath, the station’s atmosphere has a slightly used aroma. The docking bay’s deck plates thrum beneath your feet, though whether it’s from the passage of innumerable feet or the vibrations of the station’s power conduits and air recycling systems is impossible to say.
Taking in your surroundings the bay looks like any other docking bay, a large, worn yellow painted "94" lays on the floor directly in front of everyone (everyone is in the grey "trapezoid"), that steps off the shuttle. A information kiosk in on your left. There are set of giant double doors North of the party & there are 2 passages that to the side of those doors.
Anyone outside the shuttle, give me a Perception Check.
About this project
It seems like no matter how many dice you buy, you still never have enough d6s... meanwhile, your collection of unnecessary d20s keeps getting bigger.
Dice of Rolling are not rocket science. They’re just regular dice that come in the amounts you actually need, and they use color for more than just decoration. One simple purchase, and you’re good to go for most of the situations you’ll encounter in the 5th edition of the world's greatest roleplaying game. And since each dice type is a different color, you'll always grab the right ones. It’s kind of a no-brainer, but nobody else is doing it so we're bringing it to Kickstarter.
This is the dice set we’ve always wanted for our table, and with your help we can bring it to tables everywhere!
We’re keeping the rewards real simple. You can pledge to receive 1, 2, 4, or 20 sets, and each set will include the same 29 color-coded dice + microfiber dice bag.
