Where would I find templates for building 5th edition monsters, races, and classes? I'm putting together a new campaign and have need of crafting some things.

As JNAProductions said, the DMG has some fairly good guidelines, but even some of the official stuff is kinda screwy *coughIntellectDevourercough*.

A good guideline to keep is to give anything you make a purpose. Each class tends to have a role, and try to stick to that role by not going too wide.

Races are probably the easiest to make. Follow the general trend with how races are designed, and if you think of a unique idea, run it past a few people here on this subforum for balancing checks.

My question was not specific enough. Apologies. I am looking for a form-fillable document that I can plug numbers into. Thanks again!

I believe there are a few blank sample tables that can be easily copy-pasted in the 5E Homebrew Compendium that shouldn't be too hard to find.

Check this out:


I've created a couple creatures using the html template and it's pretty cool if you're going for style. Legitimately recreating the D&D5e style would take a lot of time in Photoshop, and they use some expensive af fonts.

That's just for monsters though. Anything else and things start getting more and more esoteric or non-existent.
