GreyOwl's Customization Tools-10/11 Cust. Compendium 2nd ed.

Customizing Compendium

Click on the book cover to download the PDF (11 MB).


(1st edition)


(2nd edition)




Abbreviations used in this list:

XT - extra text area (for special abilities, similar to Master Woo's card)
DO - destructible objects
MO - melee objects

All card template borders include an "overhang" folder, which contains the same borders with a 1/8" border around the edges to make it easier to cut without showing any white around the edges.

Classic HeroScape Tools


Card Templates





NOTE: Aquilla borders and backgrounds are thanks to Griffin. Although I modified them somewhat to fit into my templates, a great majority of the work on these was done by Griffin. Thanks again! OtherModern HeroScape ("Marvel") Tools




Card TemplatesOtherProbability Calculator

An Excel spreadsheet to caculate probabilites of various Heroscape dice combinations. Great for balancing your customs, since not everything is as intuitive as it first seems. Supports:
  • Probability of rolling at least a certain number of one type (skull, shield, etc.) on any # of dice.
  • Probability of causing any # of wounds given a certain Attack and Defense value. Includes support for auto skulls, auto shields, and each skull or shield rolled counting as more than 1. Show average # of attacks required to cause the damage and the average # of rounds needed to cause it.
  • Probability of rolling a certain # or higher on a 20-sided die.

Yes they are amazing, if I ever decide to make my own superhero cards, I'll definately use everything here. Great collection GreyOwl!

Feedback: We could all use a little more

These are excellent GreyOwl!! :banana: (I always wanted to use that emoticon)

"Hi Ho, what new devilry is this?" - this may have been said if Kermit the Frog and Boromir were combined and set loose upon the world... probably not though.

I was wondering if someone had made a Marvelscape base sicker, and here it is. Thank you!

This is great, very nice. Now, if only we had some GIMP templates with the Text already allocated with the correct font, unfortunately, that font is apparently not with most PC's, shame.

I use Comic Sans MS Bold for most of my stuff, while in no way near official, it gives them the nice Comic book style

Updated the first post so it is more readable. The font settings are now in a downloadable PDF file. I also added several logos I commonly use.

As far as GIMP templates, I don't know anything about that since I don't use GIMP. I use Photoshop for images and composite the card image layers and text in Microsoft Publisher. I could provide those templates, but they aren't worth much without the fonts. They're also set up as mail merge templates to pull in all my card data from Excel, so they won't be useful without the whole package (can you tell I'm a programmer ? ). It's nice, because if I want to change something on a card, I just update the text in Excel and Publisher rebuilds the completed card. Piece of cake!

I'd like to eventually get the Excel/Publisher system more user friendly so others can use it, but it isn't quite there yet. It's a pain to set up and maintain, though actually using it is pretty simple. I think allskulls was going to try it out but I haven't heard back how it went.

Sorry, I hadn't got back to you. I just upgraded to Office 2007 and I opened up the files to see what I can do but I haven't spent much time with it yet. It does seem like it would be pretty simple once I dive into it. A tutorial would help the process

I have all of the appropriate software and fonts. Can I have a copy (with some brief instructions on how to set it up)? It certainly seems like it would save you time.

I will package it up and send you a link to download it. You can be a beta-tester! By the way, you will need the Excel and Microsoft Publisher versions from Office 2007.

So 2003 version won't cut the mustard?
