Otherwise, someone else might be willing to create the template for you.
    What is needed, though, is better pictures of stat cards. The ones I linked above (likely) won't cut it. Ideally, a card cleaned up of the variable text and the image (a separate image of the speed box that appears for additional speeds would be nice but can be a duplicate of the normal speed box).
    AZRogue, assuming you meant those cards, Benimoto posted very clear scans. I'm confident I can clean them up and create a template for use in MSE - just, as I said, without the pictures as used on the actual cards. Do you want me to go ahead?

    Thanks for everyone's efforts... very useful stuff!

    I've combined RandomCitizenX's cards and Nytmare's backgrounds into a PDF with 6 cards per page for ease of printing.

    (Since I'm essentially 'making a jpg of a jpg' the quality degrades a bit. Also the PDF is quite a bit larger than the jpgs, about 6.5 megs)

    Download the combined file

    Very very cool! I'm hoping to run one of the few one shot adventures here to introduce us to 4E ... these will make doing so much easier.

    I wont be doing it face to face, but using MapTool + Skype. MapTool is in the process of implementing a deck / hand set of features that'll make this even better for online play. Neat way to test that feature, too!

    Do you want them as bmps or pngs instead?

    Holy cow you guys, nice work. Well, I may as well post a link to my much less ambitious attempt. It's an excel file with two versions of a 4E character sheet (modeled after those used at D&D Experience), as well as blank (and very plain) power cards.

    Cool, I've updated the pdf with the PNG images, and tweaked the pdf so it's only 1.5 megs:


    (Uncompressed versions of the info cards would likely help with readability... )

    This is my own attempt. Two hours in Photoshop.
