GM HEART MONITOR: Foe hp tracking

UPDATED:


See my latest post below.
Quick mock up of an icrpg enemy heart tracker. Print it on both side of an A4, laminate it, grab a thin red whiteboard marker and this is how to use it:

Perhaps cross out a dead foe. Make another foe, drawing a dividing line a bit further by however many hearts it has.
Full sheet:

Comments and suggestions welcome! I still haven’t tried it at the table…

That is practical! Thank you for sharing! And printer friendly, too! Woop! Woop!

All good! Cheers!
Let me know if it works well or not. A few ideas are having it portrait instead & switching the fill in to something to strike through like small circles. Perhaps arranged as hearts.
Idea is based on something Alex shared on discord.

Printing it for later use, for sure! :smiley:


#5

Awesome!!!

Perhaps less hearts and more writing space for each…but this guarantees a session.


#6

Rad! Yeah. Definitely a lead pencil n’ eraser stage design. Let me know how it goes!


#7

Yo, How does this feel to people? ticking or slashing the circles instead of colouring in, for speeds sake.

I Think that this is a nice alternative! Maybe offer both options?

Ok here’s another version: From landscape to portrait. Ticking/slashing instead of colouring in. Option to divide into two for those half heart foes. Circles below for adding a tracking number. i.e. Goon #1 An extra line for notes and a few other lines for various things I think I might need. Let me know your thoughts.
Thinking of a bare bones version, if this works when I get to try it, to have alongside if more tracking is needed. One of my players characters took the qs2e hunter QUICKDRAW ability and put all his points into DEX and so sometimes I need a lot of foes. LINK

Cheers GMagnus! I’ll leave it like this until I get to GM again at the end of Jan.
I’m thinking, the players get a sheet, why not the GM… I mean me? Happiness if other GMs find it useful.
Trying to keep it pretty loose but with enough to keep me organised. I’ve been flipping all over my journal at times. Its a mess. You know how you sometimes see these beautiful journal pages come up on the web. Mine ain’t. Random thumbnails, tallys and shopping lists etc all over the place… I digress.

You and be both, brother!
