I'm noticing that in 4th edition, it's more important than ever to visibly track conditions on monsters, and even on PCs. Bloodied is the most important, but other conditions are relevant, too. What products and/or tricks are out there to help with this?
Actually, I seem to be able to do this. I keep a piece of paper with all the monsters on it, their HP, conditions etc. I frequently also note down the players' conditions here as well. Occasionally the players get confused but then they ask me. It's a fairly laid back way of playing but it works.
What I really have a problem with is keeping track of all the little temporary bonuses or penalties (+1 to attack or -2 to defense and the likes), that keep popping up as a result of powers or feats or other things. A couple of times we have found ourselves in the situation where an attack that happened one or two turns ago and missed actually was a hit because of a bonus we had forgot to count. Do we then backtrack and replay the game (hardly a very elegant solution) or do I simply insist that it's still a miss and move on (possible making my players annoyed and not really helping the mood of the game)? I don't really want to spend money on some fancy system of tokens or whatnot, that could help me (I spend enough on the books) and I already have enough things to keep track of on my little piece of paper.
Magic solutions would be appreciated.
