Yet Another Encounter Calculator for Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition


of Level

Thresholds: 25 50 75 100

Encounter composition

XP Value
Difficulty: 37 : easy
Award: 25 XP


The calculator will calculate values on the fly. Just put in the number of characters in the party and their levels (You can group them by level if you want). Below the party section you will see the calculated threshold values for easy, medium, hard and deadly encounters.

To build the encounter, put in the number of monsters and their respective XP values. The app will calculate the XP award given as well as the difficulty of the planned encounter taking into account party size and encounter size as well.

Below the whole thing is a progress bar that illustrates the relative difficulty between trivial and deadly encounter thresholds for the party.


This calculator has been heavily inspired by http://dhmstark.co.uk/rpgs/encounter-calculator-5th/. I've been using that for years. I needed to learn Vuejs so I decided to implement my own version of his/her fine utility.

And of course, without Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition, there would be no Encounter Calculator.
