Status Flags

Dark-Platypus Status Flags are essentially sheets of die-cut laminated stickers that you can use to assign temporary effects to your monsters and PCs, using our Action Stands or another method of your choosing. Our first Status Flag sheet contains over 100 flags great for use with 4th Edition D&D. It’s more flags than you’re going to need, but it lets you customize the flags you want for your game.

Action Stands

Keep track of your Heroes, Enemies and Armies! Dark-Platypus Action Stands offer a convenient way to keep track of individual damage and effects on identical figures, whether in a role-playing game, tactical skirmish game, or large-scale strategic war-game.

To provide an example of how they work and what they’re good for, look to the pictures. Here we see a dungeon room filled with 4 skeletal wyrmlings (sculpted by me; available fromGoodman Games). Your adventuring party (not pictured) bursts into the room. In round one, the fighter deals 16 points of damage to one of them, and the elf ranger shoots another one for 3 points. In future rounds, the DM is going to have a little bit of work on his hands remembering which was which, especially if they start moving around the room!!However, note the 4 Action Stands that have been placed next to the figures. Each one is numbered, so now the GM can mark the damage on a separate sheet, and will always know in the future which skeletons were wounded. And players can announce “I’m attacking skeleton number 3”, which further cuts down on confusion.Also note the ‘Bloodied’ status flag that has been placed atop number 4, to indicate that he’s at half hit points.I’ve used a role-playing example here, but these things are equally at home in space combat simulations, massive battlefields both archaic and futuristic, and really just about any game where you might want to tell otherwise similar units apart. Get sets with different colors and you can easily assign teams or differentiate squads. Use our Status Flags and magnetic Status Flag Bars below to assign a variety of temporary effects (great for 4th Edition!), or design your own flags!

Magnetic Stalagmites

Each set includes six stalagmites of various sizes (each set includes the exact six pictured here). Also, the pieces are magnetic, so they will stay in place on your Magna-Map Combat Grid during play!

Six-Pack of Pillars (Magnetic)

These fine pillars are resin-cast and pre-painted. They are made right here at Dark-Platypus Studio, not overseas, so they are a little more expensive than the bendy walls (pound for pound), but we think they’re worth it! Each pillar stands about  1.75 inches high, and is about a half-inch thick. Perfect for use with the magna-map magnetic surface. Each pillar has a tiny, powerful magnet inset into the base.
