I found this picture on some D&D blogs:
I thought it was a nice way for DMs to set some NPCs basic stats and abilities (like soldiers that the PCs could recruit or something). Then I realized this was on a Party-Tracking subject, there are some status conditions, some order zones, and some circles I don't get the point.
So, firstly, what are the order squares and the cirdle on the top right, and the 3 sets of 3 connected circles on the bottom left?
Second, what is this used for? Who tracks the party? The DM? Players? What is the point of this?
