Free Ammunition and Potion Counters for D&D
This is a set of counters designed to make it easier to keep track of potions and ammunition during combat in Dungeons and Dragons . I've designed them in such a way as to make it very easy to get nice attractive double sided counters that are perfectly lined up. Single sided counters are a pain when they're upside down!
All the ammunition items and thrown weapons in the 4th Edition Player's Handbook have been included, except throwing hammers as I doubt many people would equip themselves with more than one of those.
I've included throwing knives and throwing axes, though I don't see these as Daggers and Hand Axes respectively. Throwing knives are generally pretty lousy for close combat being light and well balanced for throwing, so you may want to treat them as shurikens in terms of stats, though it's entirely up to your DM. As for the throwing axes, I've treated them more like tomahawks, but I must confess I don't really know too much about those, having grown up on the opposite side of the world to where those were popular. I've imagined them being relatively small, about 10 inches in length and weighing relatively little so that characters might carry a few of them... In terms of stats I'd be inclined to treat them as shurikens too, but if someone out there has a better suggestion let me know. I've only included 2 Javelin Counters as it seems highly unlikely that there'd be many people going dungeon bashing with whole bunches of pointy 10' poles strapped to their backs... let me know if you think there should be more.

Use the counters like you'd use Energy in Risk 2210, or money in Monopoly. The denominations are marked by size in addition to the printed detail so that you can tell them apart at a glance. Different ammo types are also coloured differently so that it's very clear which ammo is which.
There are 4 different Potion counters, but they have been identified by colour rather than type. You can decide whether Healing Potions are green or red in your world.
