Creature Handouts that come with Monster Manual

Score + 28
1579220737
I would love to see Creature Handouts included with purchase of the 5E Monster Manual (and other creature supplements), similar to the handouts seen in 5E Adventure Modules. I am currently having to manually upload images for creature handouts every time my players encounter a new monster, and I think the inclusion of these handouts by Roll20 would help many a DM improve the game for their players! Thank you! ^^

This is a great idea. The handouts already exist, just collect them up and make them an addon that comes with the purchase of the monster manual. +1
HOLY HECK YES! Upvoting this to the max!

Alternate idea: Just put the pic in the creature description, and all the rest of the description in the GM Info section. Then you can just click the “Show to Players” button on the existing creature sheet, and not have to double the number of items in the journal.

You can simply show the bio to the players (just edit away any text about rules etc you don't want them to read)

Although currently I just right click the image>copy image> go to discord and post in the general chat... But not all my players have dual screens...

These are all great workaround suggestions! ^^ Though the main reason I posted this suggestion wasn't because I had difficulty showing my players images - rather I simply love the format in which creature handouts are presented in the various different 5E Adventure Modules, and was hoping to have access to those handouts for creatures from the Monster Manual, etc.

Agreed, I like the idea of having a "Codex" for the monsters that my groups have encountered. Like a D&amp;D version of catching all the Pokemon. ^_^ Plus the formatting would appease my sense of consistency. :)

visibility bump - I love the handouts that come the the modules, I use them to contain monster knowledge for my adventure's and it irks me that I have to make my own, that aren't consistent with my others :( even though I have purchased the MM.
