Minimalist Character Sheet

Rune

Once A Fool
I like my character sheets free of clutter and with a prominent space for a portrait (when did we gamers decide it was a good idea to get rid of the most important section of a character sheet, anyway?).

Here's a sheet; put whatever information you feel is important wherever you want to look for it.

Huh. I didn't know that when I uploaded this in the downloads section, it would start a thread here.

How do you handle skills?

I posted a pic of a character I rolled up in my other character sheet thread, but here it is again:

The color appears a little distorted in the pic because its actually a black & white scan; the pencil markings wouldn't really be visible, otherwise.

And, while I'm at it, I'll go ahead and edit a shot of the clean sheet into the OP.

Kind of nice. Though I like form-fillable myself, I like the one-page concept. The portrait area is useless white space to me, though, as I can't draw stick figures.

Huh. You say, "useless white space," but I hear, "another place you can write stuff." :D

Heh. My friends all decided that my gnome had to have the pointy hat, too.

Where do you write Personality Traits, Bonds, ideals, and flaws? In the blank space of your choice?

He's got them in the lefthand box in his example I quoted.

Yup there they are. Thanks. I apparently have a real hard time reading handwriting on an image on the internet. Which isn't a critique of the actual handwriting mind you. It's much better than mine.

[MENTION=67]Rune[/MENTION] Interesting design! While I appreciate the minimalism...the real litmus test for a one-page character sheet is not a 1st-level PC (who it is easy to fit onto one page), but an 11th-level PC that has been "lived in."

I also second the value of including portrait space – one of the most fun I had was ad-libbing D&D where we began with character sketches and then rotated them around the table, each player adding an artistic touch like a pseudodragon familiar or a word or something to each player's sheet. It really did wonders for kickstarting everyone's creativity.

Thanks! I suppose how much you can fit in depends entirely on your handwriting. Personally, I just like being able to organize things into easily-referenced sections and I wanted to make a sheet that facilitated deciding where those get to be.

Of course, at 11th level, you'd need a different sheet for the spells (or the back, or cards). But I'm pretty sure this particular gnome will never live that long. The real question is whether or not an errant wild surge-fireball will take out the spelljamming ship and the rest of the party when he goes.
