12/25/18 - 5eRV is now form fillable!


These sheets were developed over a year of trial and error to reduce page-flipping. The goal was to be simple and elegant, nothing flashy or gaudy. Since it is no longer available, I made a fork of MPMB's Player Reference Sheet so my players can have easy-to-follow notes. My version of it leaves much of MPMB's text largely intact, with some moderate sectional changes. Since I only adopted it, please give MPMB a big thank you for creating the original reference page (thanks!). Recommend printing duplex and using the Mongolian Baiti font.



5eRV:

  • Brand new form with alphabetical skills, optimized space, a separate section for racial/background, more room to write spells, and a big ol' section for features and traits!
  • Moved letters inside circles, therefore there's a new system to fill in circles so only letters representing traits are visible. Examples:
    • If a spell requires Material components, fill in (V) and (S) bubbles so that only (M) is visible. If a spell is not Prepared, fill in (P) so it is not visible.
    • If a weapon's damage is slashing, fill in (B) and (P) bubbles so only (S) is visible.
    • If resistant to fire damage, fill in (I) and (V) bubbles so only (R) is visible

  • form-fillable available for both Spellcasting and non-Spellcasting variants!

Totally functional but not actively maintained:
Classic:


  • Caster (e.g. Sorcerer, Bard, Warlock) standard + form fillable
  • Non-caster (e.g. Fighter, Monk, Barbarian) standard + form fillable
  • Companion
  • Druid Forms

Inky:

  • Caster (e.g. Sorcerer, Bard, Warlock) standard + form fillable
  • Non-caster (e.g. Fighter, Monk, Barbarian) standard + form fillable
  • Companion
  • Druid Forms


Please consider showing appreciation with a review and rating. Thanks!

All character sheets are now form fillable! (but long-form spell sheet and druid sheets are not)

12/17/2018
Background page adjusted to match aesthetic, along with some sane structural changes that emphasize backstory and reduce the amount of space necessary for basic metrics at the top banner. Also discretely added some of graphics back from Classic so the sheets weren't totally sterile. Added long format spellbook at a user's request. Apparently some casters can know a LOT of spells.

12/14/2018
Spells pages got a facelift. The header is smaller/more consolidated, the spell-stat bubbles got reworked, each spell level has its own box now (aesthetically nicer), and space increased for all spell levels! In addition, fewer lines for wands/scrolls, but two lines for each entry + more space. Overview now has Exhaustion counter at the top of Buffs/Conditions. Changed filling bubbles to have text inside, with the new method for use being to black out incorrect attributes leaving only correct letter visible (see above for clarification). Added a Companion sheet befitting the 5eRV style. Download new sheets under 5eRV.zip and enjoy!

The v7 sheets are ready to go! These are now the official 5e Revamped (5eRV) sheets, meaning development for Inky and Classic will end. Classic and Inky sheets will of course remain available as they are. v7 sheets will be made form fillable, but so far no ETA

    Interesting... any chance of you posting a form-fillable version? Also, what are the two little circles beside the the larger Ability Score circle for? I get that one is for the modifier, but the other?...

    Edit: I'm guessing one for base score and one for adjusted (eg. spell or magic item improved) ability score & big circle for modifier...

    If I could move the Movement, Senses & Carrying Capacity boxes from page 1 to page 4, it would awfully close to my ideal sheet.

    I liked your idea, so I had to think on it a little. I was able to change the sheet to incorporate your suggestions.

    Also, the jpg of the first page gives you a little hint regarding how I intended the sheet to be used.

    Additionally, I have no intention of making it form-fillable because my players all do pencil-and-paper, so the incentive simply isn't there. If you have Acrobat or a similar software, feel free to try it yourself! I'm distributing this sheet because I spent some hours on it in Illustrator to get it how I wanted it and thought maybe the community as a whole might like it too, but you're absolutely welcome to edit it, create a fork, recolor, whatever.

    Looking good!

    I've always found it a bit odd that the Personality Traits, Ideals, Bonds & Flaws sections were right there on the first page when the rest of the character background and personality stuff is page two. I mean, I made my character right? Don't I remember who he is? I've always let my players choose rather than roll that stuff.

    Great work! I love that you've kept it clean and easy for beginners.

    I came across the below sheet on Reddit just a few minutes ago after seeing your sheets, and I thought it would make a fantastic addition to your style.

    I'm just getting some friends together to start playing D&D (I'm pretty much the only one with experience, and that's limited, and it'll be my first time being a DM...) and I will be using your sheets for everyone. They're all new, so I don't want to bog them down with overly complicated sheets or try and suggest they have a freaking laptop with them.

    Anyway, thanks a bunch for your great work in putting together these sheets using some of the other excellent ones and your work and style!

    I downloaded your character sheet last night and had a great time transferring my warlock to it.

    One suggestion, though: I wish the deity and character appearance boxes on the second page of the form-fillable document were editable. I'd like to be able to put images in those areas.

    Thanks!
  6. pdimens
    I want that too! Not yet sure how to do that. I'll read up on it when I update the form fillable one to match the current pen and paper.
  7. alienux
    Nice job, and I like the extra info on the sheet that isn't included on the official sheets. I'll definitely show these to my players.

    Ok, I figured it out (I think!). Try downloading again and you should have the updated version with insert-able images for character and deity.

    It works! Thank you! :-)

    I'm running a Call of Cthulhu campaign, the d20 rules updated to 5th edition. Much more streamlined! We're using your Inky version for our character sheets and everybody loves them.
  11. Yaarel
    In your link, your ‘cheat sheet’ is also nice.

    I like your descriptions for Perception (use your 5 senses) and Investigation (make connections between clues).

    Firstly, I really LOVE this sheet, its the only one I use. Thank you.

    Secondly, maybe I am missing something, but I do not understand why on the spell sheet on the slots expended there are 4 dots on the 5th level spells? Shouldn't it have 3? and if so can we get it fixed?
  13. pdimens
    Thanks for the feedback!

    That's a great question and a common one! Warlocks get 4 spell slots for level 5 spells, since their spellcasting is kinda different.

    Friggin warlocks.. always screwing things up! =)

    Thanks for the reply. I'll have to edit it for my own purposes then, I dont like the exception changing the rule. Thanks again for the sheet, its really great!

    Love the sheets, especially Inky! Is there any chance a form-fillable version is in the works for it?
  17. pdimens
    I'm just past half done with updating the current form-fillable. This overhaul makes the whole process pretty much start from scratch, so it's taking a while. After I finish that, I'll consider whether I have the time to do the same for Inky.

    These sheets are great, and I've been lurking and using them for a few versions now.

    However, had to make an account and mention... I can't seem to paste text into the Features and Traits section with the newest update? I can paste it just about anywhere else, but arguably the longest section needing the most lettering of all cannot be pasted into?

    I wouldn't have bothered to say anything, but I've been trying to make a new character for a couple weeks now, and due to having to fill the entire form out before I can save it on my program, things keep going awry. I've closed out of it by accident a few times, and the power has gone out on me TWICE, and I lost everything.

    Please update with the ability to paste into Features and Traits!

    Great sheets otherwise, upvoted!
  19. pdimens
    First off, thank you so much for the kind feedback! I'm sort of beaming with pride that you've stuck to these sheets through their many iterations (I know I keep changing things!), and I hope that you continue to find newer versions to actually be improvements over older ones. That being said, if you haven't tried them yet, please try the v7's and let me know what you think! Those are a really big overhaul, and I'm considering moving in that direction if it is indeed an improvement over the current "Classic" version. Also, thanks for making an account just to contact me; that's a big step to take, and I appreciate the dedication to communicate both your feedback and issue.

    Regarding your issue: I downloaded the fillable form straight from the website and opened it up in MasterPDF editor, and I cannot reproduce your copy-paste issue for the Traits section. It seems to work without issues on my system (Arch Linux + MasterPDF editor), which makes it difficult for me to identify what needs to be fixed/changed. Your pdf editiing software should totally let you save the filled form without having to fill everything out- that's crazy! I would suggest Foxit or Adobe Reader if you're using a Windows system, and Adobe Reader if you're using macOS. Try using one of these other softwares and let me know if your issue persists.

    First, let me say that I absolutely love your sheets and have been using them almost exclusively since you first released them.

    Would you be willing to release the source files for your Inky variant, the same way you did for an earlier iteration of your base revamped sheets on Reddit last year?

    Thanks again for some great sheets!
