(Last Update: August 2016 – 19 Character Sheets)
I’ve produced a number of character sheets, primarily for B/X Dungeons & Dragons (or Labyrinth Lord) over the years that the blog has been running.
B/X Dungeons & Dragons or Labyrinth Lord Landscape Sheet
[July 2009] This sheet is a single-sided design that covers just about everything needed for a D&D character, with lots of room for equipment and stuff. There won’t be enough room on this kind of sheet for a mid to high level magic user or cleric because of their spell lists (we just wrote the spells on the back of the sheet).
B/X Dungeons & Dragons or Labyrinth Lord Character Folder
[August 2009] This two-sided sheet is meant to be folded in half to form a digest-sized booklet. The most important information is on the cover and most equipment is on the back page. The middle two pages have places for treasure, spells, and lots of room for notes.
Basic Fantasy Character Folder
[August 2013] Based on the Dungeons & Dragons character folder above, this was modified from my source files by “DonsSword” for the Basic Fantasy RPG.
B/X Dungeons & Dragons or Labyrinth Lord PocketMod Booklet
[February 2011] I love PocketMods – for the unfamiliar they are little 8-page booklets folded from a single piece of letter-sized paper. So I drew up a character sheet for Labyrinth Lord or B/X Dungeons & Dragons in this format. Unfortunately I don’t have the source files anymore and there’s a minor mistake – AC8 is listed twice on the To Hit chart instead of AC9. But it’s a minor screw-up for such an awesome sheet.
Biohazardous Mutant Future Sheet
[February 2010] Mutant Future is a simple game emulating the look and feel of Gamma World 1e while maintaining near perfect rules compatibility with Labyrinth Lord. I was inspired by the trifoil designs of the biohazard and radiation symbols to make this quick and dirty sheet for Mutant Future play.
Dungeon Crawl Classics Zero Level Character Sheets by Kirin Robinson
This awesome character sheet for the DCCRPG was drawn and published by Kirin Robinson of Gelatinous Cubedand the award-winning Old School Hack RPG. He based the design on my old B/X character sheets, and doesn’t link to them on any of his websites anymore, so they are presented here with his permission. These are half-sized sheets – two character sheets fit on a page, and the second page is a set of Torch and Lantern tracking cards that are also totally epic and worth checking out on their own!
Dungeon Crawl Classics Character Folders by Kirin Robinson
More awesome DCC stuff from Kirin. Designed in the same style as the level 0 sheets above, this character sheet is designed to be folded into a digest-sized booklet for easy (and sexy!) character storage and access.
Neoclassical Geek Revival Character Sheet
[July 2014] Taking my hand-drawn style to a whole new level, I designed this new sheet for Zzarchov Kowolski’s fifth edition of the Neoclassical Geek Revival RPG based on the design he did for the fourth edition. The design elements remain almost identical to the original, but the style is a drastic departure from both his original and my own earlier character sheet designs.
Elaborate B/X Dungeons & Dragons or Labyrinth Lord AEC Sheet
[July 2014] Based on the enthusiastic response I received for the NGR sheet, I decided it was finally time to update my Dungeons & Dragons sheets in a similar style. Once again going over the top in ornamentation, this was the final result. The back page of this sheet is the same one as the back page of the NGR sheet because I was too lazy to make a new generic back page.
Fifth Edition Permanent Character Folder by Paul Longino
[February 2015] Modeled after the 1979 AD&D1e Permanent Character Folder, this four-page sheet (well, 5 pages because there are two versions of page 3 to choose from) really hit the spot for my Fifth Edition D&D group after an abortive attempt to use a sheet that was inspired by my own sheets above.
Gangbusters Character Sheet
[November 2014] Actually based entirely on a sheet I was using in a dream, this tries to bring the various elements of the dream sheet together for use with the classic TSR roaring 20’s RPG – Gangbusters!
Quick & Dirty Empire of the Petal Throne Character Sheet
[March 2015] Definitely my least favourite character sheet from the blog, I needed a sheet for a game of Empire of the Petal Throne and threw this together quickly on the spot. It definitely needs a lot of work to bring it up to the level of my other works – but it remains functional.
Empire of the Petal Throne Character Sheet v2
[May 2015] A much nicer and more ornate version of my previous Empire of the Petal Throne record sheet, this one-sided sheet also appeared in issue 3 of James Maliszewski’s “Excellent Travelling Volume”.
Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls
[September 2015] Not my best work – I don’t like how much of the Charisma box is eclipsed in this version. Definitely needs to be reworked one of these days.
Micro Dungeon Crawl Classics Sheet
[November 2015] A very small character sheet drawn on a small 4″ x 3″ pad of paper during a DCC game. There’s enough stuff on this sheet to handle most low-level characters. It is only available in jpg format right now (no PDF link, sorry).
BroadSword 1PG System Character Sheet
[January 2016] A half-page character sheet for the 1PG system game “BroadSword”. While the whole point of the 1PG games is that the rules and character sheet fit on a single page, I wasn’t really a fan of the sheet design. Thus this one was thrown together one evening.
Neoclassical Geek Revival 6th Edition
[March 2016] After producing the official character sheet for the 5th edition of Neoclassical Geek Revival, I was tapped again this spring to see if I would be up to making the sheet for the latest edition. It took a couple of tries, but I’m quite happy with the end result.
Empire of the Petal Throne version 3 (Portrait)
[April 2016] My third run at an Empire of the Petal Throne character sheet, this version was set up in a landscape format because most players seem to prefer that format. It’s also a lot more ornate than my previous versions and includes a bit more information (including ability score modifiers).
