Remarks

This Character Record Sheet only works with Adobe Acrobat version DC, either Reader, Standard, or Pro, running on Mac OS or Windows. Note that mobile versions of Adobe Acrobat do not support the auto-fill and auto-calculations (see FAQ). Get Adobe Acrobat Reader DC for free here.

Mac users, please be careful to never open the sheets with Preview. Opening them even once with Preview will cause the sheet's form-fillable fields and automation to be the subject to a disintegration spell.

Please take a look at the sheet's built-in FAQ before posing your questions.

If you try this sheet, please rate it and, if you feel like it, write a review. I would love to get your feedback!

 

Acknowledgements

The Dragon Head added in v12.1 on the first page is taken from the character sheet by Bruno Mendonça, which is a well-made and compact one-page character sheet worthy of your attention.

The 'Player Reference' page added in v11.9 was inspired by the Character Sheet by /tg's /5eg. The dragon in the header has been directly copied from that sheet and it deserves all the credit.

These sheets would not have been in the state that they are in now, without to the work of some awesome people:

A big thanks to Gretkatillor over on ENworld.org. The code in this character sheet (since its redesign from v6.0 onwards) has partly been borrowed from and was otherwise inspired by Gretkatillor's work.

Furthermore, some people on ENworld.org deserve my thanks for their help with transcribing stuff: shmooel.yakov, Fitsou, Athinar, and Noah Ivaldi.

Lastly, Noah Ivaldi deserves a special mention for his help in making sure everything is proper English, which as a non-native speaker is very much appreciated!

Hello! I love this character sheet a lot!

But I have one issue when using the basic, free version of adobe acrobat. What I really like to do when I'm organizing my character sheet is bolding the names of class features and continuing the description on the same line not in bold (similar to the original version of orcpub). I tried to look up the issue and it looked like bold, underline, and italicize have to be turned on in options using editor, but I can't get the editor. So I was wondering if you can activate them or suggest a different pdf viewer that can use these features.

Great to hear you like the sheet.

Unfortunately it is not possible to format the text in the fields that the code has to put text into. Enabling 'rich text' features (the things that allow you to make things bold, underlined etc.) will have some unfortunate consequences for the automation to the point that the class features will no longer be correctly displayed or updated. I have looked into doing this as I would definitely love to be able to make things easier to read, but it is unfortunately not possible with how the code of the sheet is set up. Changing the set up to accommodate this would mean that you will no longer be able to edit the field and I don't want the sheet to be run just by the automations and not have any option for...See more

I love this sheet; it works very well, and I've recommended it to everybody I play with.

However! I discovered what appears to be a bug in the import feature. I used it to bring an older character into the latest version of the sheet, and there's an issue on the first DDAL log page. The "Start" line on most entries is non-fillable, because it populates from the previous entry. On the very first entry, it's fillable on new sheets. However, on the sheet with the imported data, the cells are blank and unselectable. HOWEVER! The number still appears to be there somewhere, because it does properly cascade down the sheet, even though it doesn't show up in the first log block.

Are there plans to add half proficiency to the skill/ability checks on the character sheets? I know Bards "Jack of All Trades" gives half proficiency on all ability checks that don't already have proficiency including Initiative. Champion Fighter also has Remarkable Athlete that does that as well for a few skills.

You can set the sheet to use both "Jack of All Trades" and "Remarkable Athlete". It will automatically do that when a class your character has gets that feature. You can manually check or uncheck this feature with the modifier fields.

These Modifier fields are hidden by default and you can toggle their visibility with the "Mods" button in the 'JavaScript Window'-toolbar and with the "Modifiers" bookmark.

This is fantastic! I've never had such a good sheet that works with UA material, let alone one that links to the source PDF!

One request though, and I'm surprised this hasn't already been added: Could you please allocate a space for Conditions and Exhaustion? At the moment every member of my group using these sheets is just jotting down "Exhaustion: 1" on the second line of the Current Hit Points box, and it seems a bit over-cumbersome when compared to every other feature on the sheet.

Thanks in advance, or just for reading. Love the sheet regardless. <3

Thank you for the suggestion.

The idea of adding a condition tracking space to the Printer-Friendly sheets has been brought forth before (it is already available on the Colourful sheets).

Excellent work. Really love this. I have one thing that's bugged me for a while and wonder if it's a bug or if I'm doing something wrong. I've got a 12th level Divination Wizard and I've used this character sheet since her creation (level 1). As you know, wizards can gain spells by finding spell scrolls, etc. Anyway, I'm having problems when I level up and regenerate my spell sheet, about a half-dozen spells disappear from the list, and I need to add them in manually. Has anyone else reported this? It's been happening for me for a couple months now, I think.

However, I'm not able to replicate the problem that you are describing. Could you help me to reproduce it?

Can you please tell me the steps to take, starting with a freshly downloaded sheet of the latest version, to make this bug apparent? That includes the way you level your character, is that by clicking the "Class" button and then adding a second class, or do you just type the name into the class field, or maybe you change the level field value and then do something in the pop-ups. The more details, the easier it is for me to reproduce.
Also, it would be helpful if you can send me a copy of the sheet with which you are having this issue. This can be through email (flapkan[at]gmail.com) or by uploading the sheet on a cloud sharing service (like google drive) and sending/posting a link to it.

When using the Blood Hunter Profane Soul class and multi-classing into another class that casts spells, it will not show the spells you know for Order of the Profane soul. I have done this several different times, and it doesn't seem to work. I may be doing something wrong, I just wanted to point it out.

Also, I have reviewed this and it is seriously the best character sheet. I absolutely love it.

Thank you for the review!

And thank you for reporting the bug with the Blood Hunter. This stems from the special feature that I had to make to get that class' spell slots working while multiclassing. A recent update broke that feature, unbeknownst to me, because I don't test the fan-made additions when releasing a new version. I think I found a fix for this and you can expect it to work again with the next version of the sheet.

I've noticed that some of the 'Unearthed Arcana: Modern Magic' spells are in the wrong level of spell list. For example, the UA document states that the modern spells can be used by sorcerers, warlocks, and wizards, and are listed as such:

CANTRIPS (0 LEVEL)
On/Off

1ST LEVEL
Infallible Relay
Remote Access

2ND LEVEL
Arcane Hacking
Digital Phantom
Find Vehicle (this can also be used by Paladins)

3RD LEVEL
Haywire
Invisibility to Cameras
Protection from Ballistics

4TH LEVEL
Conjure Knowbot
Synchronicity
System Backdoor

5TH LEVEL
Commune with City
Shutdown

However, when attempting to build a Technomancer wizard (for example), attempting to choose the spells reveals that Infallible Relay is in the 3rd level list (should be 1st), Arcane Hacking is in the 5th level list (should be 3rd).

Keep up the amazing work! I can't wait for future...See more

Thank you for reporting this errors. I guess I made some mistakes during the rush of getting all UA articles into the sheet. Both spells have been corrected, Infallible Relay is now a 1st-level spell, and Arcane Hacking is now a 2nd-level spells, not a 3rd-level as you wrote, I guess you made a similar mistake as I did when adding the spell ;)

I've been trying to add the Gunslinger Fighter Style created by Matthew Mercer but have been unable to as I have only a basic version of Adobe. Considering the popularity of Critical Role, and especially his classes he has put out, I was wondering if you were considering adding a Critical Role/Matthew Mercer optional tab to your pdf? I'm using it in a homebrew game and prefer your PDF over any other I've found to this point.

Thank you for the review!

In order to add any custom code to the sheet you have to use the "Add Custom Script" bookmark. This opens a dialogue where you have to paste the code. This will work on the free version of Adobe Acrobat.

You can get custom code for several third-party materials, such as the Fighter's Gunslinger subclass, with the "Get Additional Content" bookmark, which will open a Dropbox folder in your browser. There you can locate the script, download it, and open it with your favourite text editor.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
