I was wondering what Goodman Games has planned for character sheets?

I was pondering about designing some simple sheets along the lines of one I made for Classic D&D and posted on Dragonsfoot:
http://www.dragonsfoot.org/php4/archive ... fileid=326

But then I got thinking...

How about the official sheets using the class description pages 'border artwork' around the edges of a landscape sheet? You know the shields and staircase for the dwarf one etc

Just a thought. You could offer another more printer friendly one too of course.
I think they might look rather cool.

Thoughts anybody?

Now that you mention it... Are the official character sheets (like the ones in the beta pdf) available online somewhere?

I knew I forgot something! Thanks for the reminder. Use the link below for now, and I will get this linked to the main site.

These are the bare-bones character sheets I used for play testing (most recent version). I've always meant to ask Doug to turn these into something really cool. One of these days...

These are still the beta sheets, wih the percent thief skills and older cleric lay on hand rules. Just a friendly note!

Thanks for the catch -- just re-uploaded with the "plus" version of the thief sheet. Same link should get you there. There may be some other legacy playtest items on there, now that I think about it - if anyone sees any other "playtest-isms," let me know.

Something like this (but better, and as an actual pdf)?

EDIT: Derp, just saw you specified "landscape".. :oops:

Hey RICK that's exactly the kind o' thing I meant :D

If people want landscape I guess they could just print 2 pages per sheet.

I was going to make some but was worried Joseph might not like us ripping the artwork.

It'd be fantastic if Doug could be convinced to whip some together properly :D

This game is awesome! Best version of D&D EVER!

The Cleric sheet only goes to "Level 3" for spells.

Thanks for the heads up on the cleric spells - headers updated; same link will work with the new file.

We will definitely get some illuminated character sheets going at some point!

Here is a .jpg of the index cards I made. Just print them 4 per page, cut 'em out and laminate.
Don't know if these are any use to some of you but I think it'll save on time and paper for the 'funnel'.

These are so cool. And the lamination is brilliant.

They're great! Personally I do the stock ones, 4 to a page, and cut them out. I have a nice stack of 0-level characters... dead ones. We went through a lot for a while... I do have to say, laminating them is much better for the environment!

I am really getting interested in this game. Enough to register here and start thinking about how to find local players (haven't played a tabletop RPG since 2E).

I like the character sheet examples shown in this thread, but for me it just doesn't feel like old school gaming unless your character is hand-written on binder paper.

I love hand written characters. Once, playing Tunnels & Trolls, the Dm gave us 30 levels to make characters up with. The others had two 15th level guys...

I opted for 30 1st level nobodys...
Wrote them all out by hand :D slaved over them with tender loving care.

Giant bolder trap in the first corridor......splat.
I was left with one character and a lot of mess.

That was my first and only experience of 'the funnel' that is prompted my laminate cards!
I am not writing that lot out again and again :D
