DnD 5e Encounter Sheet
In Dungeons and Dragons, a Dungeon Master’s job is busy enough keeping players in line and moving the story along without needing to juggle every single stat and ability for each and every single monster the party encounters. There are several combat trackers out there in the wild and this is one of the best which comes crowd-sourced from this reddit thread originally posted by Neskatomon. This is a repost of the form-fillable DnD 5e Encounter Sheet to save a busy DM some time.
It does take some preparation to setup, but it ends up being much more useful than stopping the action and thumbing through the Monster Manual. A single sheet has three monster types which can have up to ten of the same monster tracked. Three different monster types ends up bringing plenty of variety to a single encounter. I end up printing these sheets double-sided and using one complete side per encounter. It also becomes a great way to easily manage experience.
