    Generic 5e Letter Booklet

    I have just uploaded Generic 5e Letter Booklet to the downloads area.

    This character sheet is designed in three sections:
    Front: Basic data and Fluff
    Center: All Crunch
    Back: Equipment

    Notable features
    Folded: Easier to keep inside the Player's Handbook between sessions.
    No room for damage: Damage and death saves change way to much and deteriorate the paper. Better to track that in a blank sheet.
    No room for spells: For non-casting classes is lost space and for casting classes it's never enough.

    You can find the file here in the downloads section. Please use this thread for comments.

    QFT.

    The bit of paper on the side on my character sheet for hit points gets worn out way faster than anything else.

    I like it, all good ideas, and the booklet format is quite original.

    I followed a different approach for proficiencies, but the standard one is also ok.

    You could slightly improve the use of space by also removing Inspiration, similarly to what you did for death saves and current hp.

    Put a piece of tape where you track your hit points and write on that

    Instead of a blank sheet, for my players I created class-specific "resource sheets" to track expendable resources: HP, HD, spell slots, sorcery points, channel divinity, lay on hands, etc. Some of the players loved them, others shrugged. *shrug*

    Typos

    On a cursory glance, I noticed at least one typo on the sheet. "STRENGHT" on the character stats, the saving throws, and on the skills page, for example.
