Statblock 5e Template?
 
Does anyone have a statblock template they use for Dungeons & Dragons 5e?

I don't like the Hero Lab Statblock, a hero lab portfilio isn't needed and I can't find a means to link OneNote Sheets to Realm Works.

So has anyone created a nice statblock template they would post?

Attached (if it worked) is a sample of what a creature looks like in my RW. I'm working on the monsters in another realm for import so this is sparse but gives the gist.

For encounters, I copy the statblock to the encounter as a standard text block for quick reference. Opening extra windows using the RW Statblock or HL options is stupidly slow.

I don't have slow down that is notable unless I made changes to the statblock, however that could be because I don't have a large Realm yet.

Since this post, I did changed my mind on using it. While I did find out I can copy and paste an excel sheet into it, that I custom made for this purpose, I rather use external resources in an image format than a document. And might do that for monsters and spells. Might also do it for Bruenor in terms of the Player's Handbook.

I have a similar setup to yours, except Challenge is a tag, and Damage Resistances and Vulnerabilities are both tags and text. This way if I want to find content with those details, its a tag filter away.

Then again, I'm not sure if making "too many tags" is a thing to be concerned about - I hope not, cos I already have a lot of custom made ones ^.^

But thank you very much for the time to post your response, it was greatly appreciated.

I wouldn't worry about too many tag domains. I have dozens in my main realm.

I think having too many images (database bloat) might be more of a concern than too many tags. :-)
