Dungeon Master's Character Cheat Sheet

Dungeon Master's Character Cheat Sheet


Player: "I listen at the door."

DM: "You hear a couple voices talking ... does anyone speak Goblin?"

Players: *searching sheet* "Nope."

DM: "Yeah you don't know what they're saying."

What if you, the DM, had a handy dandy cheat sheet that showed you at a quick glance your players' language proficiencies? Character flaws? Bonds and ideals? Passive Perception scores? Stealth modifiers? (It's amazing how much more stressful stealthy situations are when the players don't know how well they're sneaking around!)

I wanted a cheat sheet like that, so I made this one. I've included two .docx files, one with my exact sheet you can use as a template, and the other with comments on it indicating what a few things are and how I use it.

Alternatively, you can see the whole thing below as a JPG image, so feel free to make your own from there if you'd like, too!

(In case you're wondering, yes, those are actually my players' characters for my current Saturday game. It's an interesting one.)

Rules Edition(s)
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.
