Form-Fillable Character Sheet (New and Improved!)

SCRPG Character Sheet (FF-PP)

I've played a number of different RPG systems, and I tend to be a bit obsessive about character sheets—especially digital ones. I've always preferred a clean print-out or a paperless version over eraser marks and my bad handwriting, so I've created and edited a number of form-fillable character sheets over the years. When I got my hands on the SCRPG sheet, I saw a few spots where I knew I could tweak and make some minor improvements.

And then before I knew it, I had overhauled the entire sheet.

So with all due respect to the folks at >G and Critical-Hits, at the link above is a new-and-improved version of the SCRPG form-fillable character sheet. My goal was to make the sheet as polished as I could, while also mimicking the Sentinels of Freedom and Daybreak sheets that have already been published. Here's a (non-exhaustive) list of the changes:

  • Corrected all field dimensions and alignments
  • Converted main font to Gill Sans Nova (available as part of Windows 10) and corrected embedding
  • Changed hero point checkboxes from circles to diamonds
  • Standardized font size for Powers, Qualities, and Ability names (no longer Auto)
  • Standardized Ability game text to two lines of 8pt font, with the option to customize using Rich Text Formatting
  • Renamed and reorganized fields for better ease of use / tabbing
  • Minor graphical changes
  • Fixed bugs (including some I created)

Along with the blank sheet, I've included two test runs I did to re-create Tachyon and Headlong as a proof-of-concept, and I think the results are pretty darn close to the real thing. That said, I'd love to hear feedback from the community if there are any further corrections or improvements I can make. Thanks for reading the wall of text, and enjoy!

It looks really good, I'm going to have to try this one out.  (I was very much annoyed by the incorrect text alignment in certain areas of the official one.)
