Complete revamped 5e sheet (form fillable) + INKY Edition

File Information

Now form-fillable + INKY variant!

There are so many different sheets that had some features I loved but also features I didn't, so I took the time to combine what I considered the best parts of others' work, then build some stuff from scratch that I thought would be more useful. I don't have a cool name for these sheets, but my goal was to reduce page-flipping during a game. I typically have my players print out a spell sheet rather than use the one on page 3, but I kept this upload to be more universal. This is a pencil-and-paper sheet with the intention of being simple and elegant, nothing flashy or gaudy, and with some effort, now a form-fillable version available. Components were inspired from elements in yazgang's, Valton's, and SpadaBastarda's character sheets. The guide page is included as well, so players new and old can conveniently have it next to them. Please rate, comment, and enjoy!

The pages have been combined (5e Revamped.pdf) or available as individual pages, for your convenience.

Form-fillable variant of older version available here



Some months ago I made custom sheets for a local gaming bar when they host learn-to-play DnD nights. I wanted those sheets, which are "fancier," to be available to everyone who is a fan of the current sheets. The sheets are mostly the same with some obvious aesthetic differences. All things need names (I guess?) and so I named these the "Inky" edition.

It was pointed out to me that the sheets no longer resemble much in the way of the sheets that inspired them, which is kind of crazy (and cool). For purely aesthetic reasons, I decided to remove the DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS logo in the banners and replace them with the name of the page, i.e. "Overview", "Background", etc. and replace the images much like I did with the first page a while back. This also establishes that these sheets are not actually affiliated with WotC or DnD, and so shouldn't actually bear their name and trademark. I never touched that part before because I wanted them to resemble the official sheets as much as possible and be more like a "flavor", but a dozen iterations later, here we are, and I think it was time to finally remove it an just name the pages. Hope you enjoy it! Also made the Deity section on the Background section a little nicer, inspired by Adventures League sheets.


A reddit user forked the sheets to suit their campaign needs (yay!) and showed me their work. I rather liked how they increased the font size of the ability score names, something I've been struggling with figuring out how to do for months, and while I didn't copy their method (required cutting off the tops of the circles), it did inspire me to finally figure out a solution that was made available after opening up the space in the previous version.
  • Ability score names moved and made much larger
  • Returned the bubble-based method for resistances/vulnerabilities in a more compact way (I like this method better)
  • Spells page minor touch-ups in the header for consistency and increased size of M/V/S/P/C bubble guide
  • File sizes of combined pdf's down by half
  • form-fillable version now identical to pen-and-paper version (and thus has the same edits)
    • all bubbles on spell page now active
    • a touch of color on some bubbles
    • I haven't set the tab order yet
I'm always the DM, so I never had to fill one of these out. Rolling a character recently, I finally got to try these sheets, and immediately knew what needed improvement: space.
This update (hopefully the last?!) incorporates my best effort at maximizing space on these sheets without adding clutter or removing crucial sections.
  • Carrying Capacity and Inspiration moved
  • Ability score area expanded
  • Increased space for skill bonuses and made it more visually pleasing
  • Weapon ATK bonus section larger
  • Darkvision moved above initiative, other senses removed
  • Conditions swapped with Hit Dice / Death Saves (updated in pdf, but not in the Guide page)
  • Resistances changed to be more compact and remove erroneous options
  • Features/Traits modified to improve organization, with Languages on top, and class/background/race proficiencies below it, and empty space to write below that
  • Companion page got a little overhaul for consistency
  • form fillable variant now available!
    • text now auto-scales in forms​
Overview Page:
  • Consolidated conditions with buffs/debuffs
  • Consolidated temp hp with current hp
  • Extended attacks and spellcasting to include more weapon attacks (4) and cantrips (6)
  • Added concentration bubbles to the left of cantrips on Overview page
  • Gave minor facelift to weapon attack area
  • Shield added to Armor Class area to indicate if player is using a shield to boost AC
Spells Page:
  • Added bubbles next to spells to indicate Material, Verbal, Somatic, and if it requires Concentration
  • Added little quick-reference of bubbles to the top of the Spell Sheet
  • Facelift for Spellcasting stats on top of Spell Sheet, with area to also jot down spells available through wands/items/scrolls
  • Generic points-tracker circle added to header of spell sheet
  • Added spaces for skill values.
  • Proficiency and perception is larger
  • Backpack has columns for quantity and weight
  • ​Expertise bubbles added
  • Point-Pool added beside spell attack/DC for things like Lay on Hands, Sorc Points, Ki Pool, Barbarian Rage, etc.

    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. - Created by: /u/gcook725 on Reddit

    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!
