InitiativeBoard is a no-frills tracking aid for initiative and damage/hit points in d20 role playing game rounds like Pathfinder, Starfinder or D&D.

Get rid of pencil and paper, and start dragging tiles for players and NPCs on the grid. Starting new encounters is a matter of seconds.

Supports configurable conditions with automatic round countdowns.

Organize your games in up to five campaigns with ten players each.


Quickstart Instructions

First, tap on the Settings (gears) button in the lower left and enter player names for campaign 1 and a name for that campaign. When done, tap “Restart” on the main screen (2nd icon on the bottom row).

In the top right there is a button “1” for the first NPC. Tap on the “+” button to create more NPCs as needed.

To start an encounter, drag the player tiles from the top row to the positions for their initiative value.

Tap on “Start” at the bottom of the board. The tile with the highest initiative value will be marked as “active”, shown as a black border.

Continue tapping “Next” to move the active marker to the next player or NPC.

Excellent for D&D

I use for a D&D campaign and works quite well. Being able to name npc’s as well as player characters makes combat run more smoothly.

Pretty good, saves time

It takes a bit of time to configure, but once it is set you can really get a handle on things. I love the rounds counter for effects. Having the sheet remind you if when you abilities expire is really helpful.

There are a bunch of small bugs you need to deal with, and unlike another commenter, the developers are not responsive to emails. I have submitted a number if questions and suggestions, each one ignored. I do not even know if they are getting emails.

Like most apps, I expect no support. I would recommend only for GM's who want a more interactive tracker.
