D&D 5E Complete revamped 5e sheet

I have just uploaded Complete revamped 5e sheet to the downloads area.

Hello all,

I've recently taken to creating what I consider a more ideal character sheet for my players. I saw many different sheets that had some features I loved and others I didn't, so I took the time to combine those great elements. I don't have a cool name for the 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 I welcome anyone to adapt it to being form-fillable if that's what you prefer. I would love any feedback the community might have. Enjoy!

Pavel

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.

Thank you and a suggestion

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!

Great design!

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!

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.

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.

Nice!

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.

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).

4th dot 5th level spells

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?

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!

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.
 

Absolutely love the sheets!

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!

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.
