When this bar first opened, they had a few drinks on the menu I was planning to ding them on (a Manhattan with licorice-flavored bitters? ugh.), but they were all gone on later visits. Hurray!

Printable minis for D&D

I’ve been drawing my own paper, stand-up miniatures for my D&D home game, inspired by the ones I got for being an Order of the Stick Kickstarter backer.

My local gaming store (The 20-Sided Store) is playtesting the next D&D rule system, and the new playtest packet includes 8 pre-generated characters. So I’ve created a paper mini for each of them! (I made two versions of the ranger & cleric, and an animal form for the druid)


If you’d like to use them, a link to the PDF file is below – just cut them out along the thick lines, fold on the thinner lines, and tape the bottoms together!

Printable minis from Bill (PDF)

(They work best if printed on cardstock, with a penny taped to the inside to make a more solid base).

Feel free to use them for your games! And if you do, take a picture and let me know!

Hello, new visitor! If this is your first time here, you’re probably looking for my comic about dating trans men: Orientation Police.  If you like that, you might also like my gay romance comics.

However! I am no longer updating this site regularly! I’m devoting most of my time to my cocktail comics and bar reviews, which you can read at: www.BarScrawl.net!

On this site, you can still read the archives of my journal comic (“The Amazing Adventures of Bill” – the first 400 strips are on this site) and my D&D comics. Thanks for stopping by!
