UPDATE: Version 2.1 is here with some minor fixes:

  • Fixed an issue that would not allow the Extra Weapon 2 field to be filled.
  • Included a generic bonus field to all skills to better handle things like Expertise and magical bonus.

-----------------------------------------

Hello all,

Recently, I've created a fillable PDF character sheet for 5e, built upon the original sheet design, but with some auto calculations and overall improvements. I've run a version 1.0 for my friends and people I play with and they all found it great. With a little tweaks an bug fixes, now I have version 2.0, and I'd like to share it with more people, and maybe improve it even more in the future, based on a larger feedback.

Since it uses java script for automation, it's best used on Acrobat Reader. Other PDF readers might not handle it well.

So I hope you all enjoy, and leave me your thoughts.

What this sheet does:
  • It has drop down list with ready options from the PHB for things such as class, level, etc...
  • It calculates you proficiency bonus, your atribute modifiers, your saving throws and skills, your passive perception, your Hit Dice, Your Equipped weight, your total weight and encumbrance for both cases, your spell save dc and attack bonus.
  • It has an improved "Attacks & Spellcasting" area for better handling ranged attacks
  • It has an "Equipment" area to handle the items you always wear, in the best RPG style - as a bonus, you get a silhouette to sketch your character over, based on your gender choice. (In this version, there's only support for a human-like silhouette, but if I can manage to find some for different races, I'd love to implement them)
  • It has also a "Backpack" area to handle itens you carry around, but not necessarily wear, and an area of "Treasure" for things you keep stashed in a safe place.
What this sheet does not:
  • It does not handle multiclass characters at all. (I actually think people don't play them. My group, at least, ppl never exchange the power cap for versatility... but if it proves a popular request, I might think on how to implement it. Probably a separated sheet)
  • It does not calculate bonus from magical itens.
  • It does not handle the rogue's Expertise. For now it must be noted as a class feature and remembered to be added to the roll.
Edit: Added one of my characters as an example on how to fill the sheet.

    Am I just missing it or did you forget a cell for Experience ?

    @diskdevl Actually, I'm not used to track experience for my characters, my DMs like to keep this control to themselves. So I might have overlooked the need for it. =) Suggestion noted.

    I really like this sheet. I think the HP area is better. And thank you for adding a section for gender!

    I would love to see a section for deity/warlock patron, if you do another version.

    Also, I'm one of those people who like to multiclass. Though I haven't tinkered with 5e's multiclass system much.

    Anyway, thank you for making a nice looking sheet. I will find use for it.

    Also, it would be nice if this sheet allowed a character portrait.

    How about making the sections auto sizing?

    I just started playing 2 weeks ago and I've spent about 18 hours creating my character so far. While I think it's important to know the mechanics, this sheet makes it SO much easier. I would like to echo the previous comments of being able to add a character portrait, an area for XP, and whatever is necessary for multi-classing. Also, I'm not sure if it's a limitation of the PDF creation software, but the ability to change the input text color would be awesome (I prefer to use different colors so that the info stands out better). Regardless, I'll be using this sheet to help explain to my friends how to make their characters!
