Old School Character Sheets

Post by QuelessQuest » Wed Jun 20, 2012 10:18 am

I wanted some old school looking character sheets, so I went back to the source. This is a work in progress. Completed items posted below.

Get the pdf versions (best when printed on goldenrod):

Updated 7/7/2012: Cleric typo fixed. Wizard sheet has less spells, but room for Mercurial Magic!
Updated 7/10/2012: Thief added. Tweaks to Cleric and Wizard to add a notes section for unused traits.
Updated 7/12/2012: Warrior and Elf added.
Updated 10/29/2012: Dwarf Added. All classes updated to remove redundant 'Class' line. Warrior updated to include spot for "Luck Weapon"

Cleric
Dwarf
Elf
Thief
Warrior
Wizard

I was expecting to see pictures of college rule with pencil written scribbles of information - but I really dig the throwback to the old 1ed AD&D style.

As a character sheet maker myself, I say good showing QuelessQuest.

That is a lovely piece of work! :D


I feel really behind the curve on the character sheet thing -- those wthl long memories will remember a DCC 'tribute' character sheet I did back in the stone age... I can picture the DCC RPG sheet I want to make -- I just have to carve out the time to actually make it! :roll:

I remember that sheet. I used it for a bit back in the stone age. My group enjoyed it.

Thanks for the CS. I have a cleric in my group who wants to give it a try.

I thought about it and I might add it. Wasn't sure how much I wanted to deviate from the original sheet it is based on. Would need room for 20 spells + mercurial effects. Something I could mess around with.

Well, it's brilliant work, and it captures exactly the original sheet it is based on.

What about a second sheet for listing spells? You could put other wizardy junk on it, as well... stats for a familiar, notes about the patron, etc.

My goal wasn't to create optimal character sheets, but to envision what a DCC character sheet would look like in the old AD&D character sheet format.

I agree, wizards would need more detail. Once I finish all the basic, perhaps I'll revisit the wizard sheet. Or add a second page that is custom to the wizard that allows for the details of the spell to be recorded and the front the sheet will just be for listing the spells and marking of which are lost for the day.

That's actually a great idea. the litle box in the front of the sheet can be used for a 'quick-view' of your spells, and then have a separate sheet for more detail.

These look great, and I hope to see more. Oh, it should be "opposed" in the Lay on Hands table, however.

I think Wizards need room in their spells list to detail Mercurial Magic and Manifestation information. That is something that room is something I see missing on most character sheets.

One can simply use TWO boxes for each spell:name + effects, that could work OK.
