Firebrand templates.

You'll need a few of these.

Hi all -
Frank, there isn't a link to the flames so that we can d/l the file. You only this tiny picture, which when yanked and set ablaze on my own pc, that's a lot of resizing.
I'm at a Photoshop class today, and I'm hoping that when I get back from seeing Transformers I'll have a chance to look at these templates and see about increasing the size to fit non-standard 1.5" squares.
Thanks.

the file should have shown up at 200 something pixels, it's actual size.

image found at http://www.inetdaemon.com/Gallery/Digital Art/slides/03 Fireball.html

Here is the image at 1.5" a square [144 pixels]

Not big on photoshop. too many options, thrown at you at once.

Unfortunately i did not get word on my reinstall of win2kpro yet, so my MSpaint can't save as gifs. Thankfully Imageshack autoconverts .bmp to .png.

Attached below are two sheets of firebrands. Make sure to select "No Scaling" to retain the proper ratios. the 12 pack is 1" to a square. The 6 pack is 1.5 inches to a square.

...the text and the example{and the text in that example] of lines in the PHB do not agree on what defines a line!
The editors admit that the rule there is muddled. They advise going with the version in the illustration, in which line spells affect any square that is touched or crossed by the line. (This would be the blue squares in the example you made.)

If you want to back that up, just look here for the specifics.

Oh I read Skippy's article on that. I don't disagree with wotc on this, I just like pointing out the incongruity.

I really like this article; http://wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/mi/20070329a , it was written for DDM, but it works really well for D&D line questions as well.

Other Options

I prefer a real circle to the D&D blocky circle. Because of this I have always just used a true circle. Any cells which are only partially in the AoE get a +2 bonus on the saving throw. This really doesn't doesn't destroy the balance of the game and allows things like a paper plate, a cup, or any number of readily available round objects to be used quickly.

Along the lines of a stencil ... I used a piece of Plexiglas from the hardware store withe the AoE shapes drawn on it. This works fairly well as you just hold it over the minis and it becomes pretty clear which one's are within the AoO. You could do this for the blocky area as well as a true area. I have a cone one and a circle one and they work well and seem fairly rugged.

Any tips on cutting the plexiglass, notably to have a smooth edge on a curved surface?

EDIT

Here is a PDF of the square-grid template for the Black tentacles spell.

I'm thinking of purging heretics, mutants and xenos with the cleansing power of flame, so here are some Dark Heresy related templates.

Any chance we could see some more spell templates? Like the 60ft cone of cold?

Love the PDF format, printing sizes are always hard to guess, but even if a large template needs to be glued together from several printed sheets, PDFs are set at the size you need!

I could compile a list of the undone spell effects if you're interested in dazzling us some more?

Try your Google-fu. There are a lot more products out there in the two years since the last post in this thread.
