View Full Version : Top-Down Token Search

November 19th, 2014, 18:22
I am looking for a few top-down tokens, and had great luck last time I posted here.

The things I haven't been able to find anywhere (or use similar replacements for) are as follows:
Rug of Smothering (yeah, I should probably just use a top-down picture of a rug, but it's worth asking)
Crawling Claw
Any kind of modron
Flumph (man, I felt dirty Googling "top-down flumph." Don't know why)

Almost everything else, I've been able to find a good one (paid or free), or use something similar. But these....these have escaped me.

Thanks for any help anyone can give!

That's not exactly an answer, but have you tried this tool? https://www.rptools.net/index.php?page=tokentool It's free and lets you make your own token in, literally, about 15 seconds.


EDIT: If they got to be top-down, it's a bit problematic indeed.

Yeah, that's the thing: I prefer top-down style vs. token-style.
Although I agree that TokenTool is awesome.

Its time to brush off your long forgotten artistic skills!

Those are some tough tokens to find...let me see...

There is actually a claw that comes with the tokens that are built in. Just load up the Monster tokens library and you'll find one named monster_creeping_hand_a_01.

For the nothic I used this little bugger...


The aarakocra could cause some trouble, but there's an owlbear token by one of my favorites, Devin Night that could pass. I'd probably do a recolor on it if I was going to use it this way. BTW, this token came from one of the free sets.


And the last I have...and this may not be exactly what you're wanting...a little recoloring on this, maybe adding some wings...that'll make it useable. I just had a statue.


Use a rug from any number of mapping sources for your rug of smothering. :) Modrons and the like...well, a little 3D modeling could probably put one together pretty quick.

Ah, that nothic one is totally do-able, thank you!!

And yes, that sphinx at least gives me a place to start. I'm no artist, but I can PhotoShop another creature's wings onto that, and lower the saturation so it's more sandy/stony.

Thank you so much!!
