The ultimate toolkit for 5E game masters, with a reusable party tracker and a monstrous hoard of rules, resources, tables, and tools, all in a deluxe notebook.
Lead the adventure
Keep your head in the game with a reusable game tracker that speeds up combat and holds your party's most important details at the front of the book.
Made for 5E
From combat to conditions, encounters to expenses, you'll find every 5E rule conveniently indexed for quick lookup in the heat of the adventure.
Rich with resources
Create compelling NPCs, captivating quests, and much more with over 50 tables that keep you permanently prepared for your party's antics.
100% recycled and sustainably sourced paper and a tough sewn lay-flat binding combine to forge a powerful ally you'll feel good about wielding at the table..
Unique black-on-black cover
HeroBook GM delivers a subtle yet striking appearance with a glossy
black design on a matte black cover. Just like the fantasy world that
hosts your campaign, it can appear opaque and mysterious... but a little
bit of light and closer inspection reveals a wealth of inviting details.
Your players get to level up. Why shouldn't you?
No more disorganized notes
No more heavy hardcover rulebooks
No more wasted paper
Reusable party tracker
The party tracker in the inside front cover is coated with a 1.5mil polypropylene laminate that works with wet- or dry-erase markers. Monitor your party's most critical stats like AC, spell DC, and passive perception. Write and erase initiative orders, monster hit points, and status conditions over and over with each combat encounter. Lose the disorganized stack of index cards and run your game smoother than ever before.
5E rules & quick references
Everything a game master needs at the table is inside: fully indexed gameplay rules, combat, spellcasting, conditions, objects, traps, monsters, and more, all sourced from the 5th Edition System Reference Document. Powerful quick references at the front and back of the book provide easy access to your most commonly needed rules. Simplify your game by combining your DMG, session notes, and party tracking into one beautiful package.
A home for your hero
The unique 4-in-1 note paper combines lines for notes, grids and isometric dots for maps, and blank pages for sketching. Dedicated session logs help you remember what happened last time. A fillable table of contents helps you find your critical notes at a moment's notice. Blank stat blocks let you track custom monsters, NPCs, pets, and familiars. And, of course, over 50 tables and generators help you create anything your game demands with just a few dice rolls.
Tough construction & sustainable materials
A heavy 130lb cover stock keeps your character sheet in pristine shape, and 70lb acid-free satin paper inside provides an excellent bleed-free writing surface that preserves your notes and drawings for eons. The exposed Smyth sewn binding is strong but flexible, so the book opens fully and lays flat on every page. Best of all, it's made of 100% FSC® certified (FSC® C014956) post-consumer recycled and sustainably sourced paper, and printed in a carbon-neutral facility right here in our hometown of Vancouver, Canada.

Frequently Asked Questions
HeroBook GM is bound using a technique called Smyth sewing, where the folded paper signatures are sewn together with thread. This is most commonly used for heavy-duty, library-quality applications like textbooks and bibles. Other than a thin layer of glue, the spine is left exposed for maximum flexibility, allowing the book to open all the way and lay completely flat on every page - very useful when referencing rules or notes at the table. Despite the raw look, it's very strong and will hold up to heavy use over a long period of time.
Nope! All content in the HeroBook GM has been sourced from the 5th Edition System Reference Document, a comprehensive version of the 5E ruleset published under the Open Game License. For anything we can't include for copyright reasons, such as additional races and classes, the book includes page references to the official source material wherever possible.
Yes! We tested a variety of different surfaces to find the optimal surface for both wet- and dry-erase pens. The 1.5mil polypropylene laminate takes non-permanent ink well and wipes clean months after being written. For continued performance of the reusable surfaces, we recommend pressing lightly when writing and using only non-permanent wet- or dry-erase pens. To clean, wipe gently with a soft cloth and a very small amount of moisture only if necessary.
Your HeroBook contains two reusable surfaces: one inside the front cover, and one inside the back cover. The rest of the pages inside your HeroBook are high-quality post-consumer recycled satin finish paper without the polypropylene laminate - these take ink well and do not bleed, but are not reusable.
Because the two sides of the folded cover do not shift much with respect to each other, you will not experience much lateral smudging of dry erase ink when the book is closed. If the closed book has weight on top of it for an extended period, you will occasionally get a little bit of transfer of dry erase ink over to the other side of the sheet. Wet erase ink will not smudge whatsoever unless moisture is introduced.
Maybe! Stay tuned!
