About this project
DID YOU MISS OUT ON THE KICKSTARTER? DON'T DESPAIR, PREORDER YOUR STAT TRACKERS RIGHT NOW AT
Stat Trackers are a way for 5th edition GMs to track initiative and and have every stat they need for the monsters, player characters and npcs right at their fingertips.
Stat Trackers will be printed on high quality, durable paper stock and double scored for easy folding. You just fold them and place them over the GM screen in initiative order.
The players' side has the names of all the combatants in initiative order.
The GM's side has all the vital stats and information needed for every combatant involved. Each monster, player character and npc is completely presented for the GM's reference. No more juggling books or flipping through notes. Every stat, attack, special ability, etc. is there in a condensed, easy to use format.
We are offering 314 Monster Trackers consisting of 200 official monsters (from Aboleth to Zombie) plus 114 official animals / nonplayer characters. Monster Trackers are individually edited by a 30-year veteran GM of the game. They have been designed to present the most commonly needed information in a bold, easy to read format. Every bit of information you need from the monster listing is present on the card in a condensed, succinct format. No need to reference books or notes.
To add monsters to your collection we have created Blank Monster Trackers. Simply fill in the vital stats for any monster not included in our set, be it from a module or a home-brew monster, and add it to your collection.
The players are represented in the initiative order by their Character Trackers. Character Trackers are filled out by the players to provide vital stats the GM might need during a game; armor class, hit points, spell DC, passive perception, ability and skill modifiers and more.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR GAME
Stat trackers are designed to free up some of the juggling and paperwork the GM has to do during a game. Flipping through books or referring to notes is annoying and time consuming. Less time spent hunting for what you need means more time for adventure!
They also help solve the age old question, "who's turn is it?". Hanging the stat trackers in initiative order on your screen helps both the GM and the players. I even place a small spring clip on the Stat Tracker of the combatant whose turn it is as a visual reminder to the players and myself. When that player is done, I move the clip to the next combatant in line, and so on.
We are turning to you, the Kickstarter community, to help me make this product a reality. We need your support to print them in sufficient numbers to make the price reasonable and quality high. Thank you!
@$12,500 -- Stretch Goal One: Upgraded paper UNLOCKED!
Stat Trackers were already being printed on durable, 65# cover stock. When this project hits $12,500 we will upgrade the paper to 80# cover stock!
@$20,000 -- MONSTER MASH: 5 Additional Monster Trackers UNLOCKED!
We will be adding 5 custom-built monsters to all Monster Tracker Sets and Stat Trackers Complete Sets ordered through Kickstarter. What kind of monsters you say? While I have lots of home-brewed monsters I have created and used over the years, I have decided to also accept ideas from you, our backers and the gaming community in general! If you have custom 5e monsters you have created and want to submit them for consideration, go to our Stat Tracker Facebook page and check out the guidelines for submitting them here: https://www.facebook.com/stattrackercards/
If your monster is selected you will get bragging rights and a credit on the actual Monster Tracker card for that creature!
@$25,000 -- Upgraded Box! UNLOCKED!
The Monster Tracker Set and Complete Stat Tracker Sets already come in a handy file box with a tuck and fold-style lid. When we reach $25,000, we are upgrading the box to a full-telescoping, 2-piece rigid box with awesome, full-color cover art! Check out the mockup below!
@$30,000 -- ROUGE'S GALLERY: 5 Additional Monster Trackers UNLOCKED!
We are happy to announce our $30,000 stretch goal, Rogue’s Gallery: 5 Home-Brewed NPCs added to all Monster Tracker and Complete Stat Trackers sets. That would make the new total 327 Monster Trackers!
@$45,000 -- UPGRADED MONSTER TRACKERS UNLOCKED!
We will improve the quality of the product once again at $45k by upgrading all preprinted Monster Trackers with an additional layer of protection and durability. All 327 Monster Trackers will now be coated to offer stain resistance and better handling over time!

Risks and challenges
The risks for this project are pretty minimal. Since I have been in the print design field for more than 25 years, I have a good handle on the production process required for this project. All details of the job have already been negotiated and I have the printer on standby ready to go. A large number of the Monster Trackers are already designed and the rest will be finished shortly. I have run a successful Kickstarter for my father-in-law, Antonio Masi's Bridges of New York: Limited Edition Prints, and so am familiar with the Kickstarter process and fulfilling pledges.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
