HP Squares

Post Sun Jun 07, 2015 10:13 pm

What character or wingding is used for the HP squares?

I'm thinking of trying to make some HP pages that I can just grab to keep track of hit points during battles. Either a page dedicated to different numbers of HP (1 page of 4 HP, 1 full of 6 HP, etc.) or just a page of assorted HP.

I can't tell you what the character is, as I can't remember... but it's a standard HTML entity. Try this page out:

http://basicfantasy.org/checkboxer.html

I've never cleaned this one up for public consumption, but it's what I use to create hit point boxes in my adventures.

Also, one of my regulars created a sheet which I haven't yet posted that contains nothing but rows of 25 or 30 (I forget) boxes for use with random encounters.

It needs at least a little explanation first.

I've cleaned up the checkbox generator page a bit, added some explanatory text, and linked it from the Tools page. So it's now an official tool... for whatever that is worth.
