Form-fillable 2e Char Sheet

reposted from G+:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1KPl5WJCfta4nS30-Zv2C-OTephzwAPV5

Prior to the release of 2e, Jeff released a pdf of the new char sheet.  Somebody added forms and reposted it.  (I'm sorry, but I don't remember who did it...I'll gladly give credit if the name surfaces.)  Anyway, the sheet as I found it tried to autocalculate the combat chart near the bottom, based on Fighting Ability (FA).  It was little janky and didn't work, so I looked at it, and tried to fix it.  I eventually got annoyed and stripped the math out and re-did the calculations, without relying on the FA value.  So, for this sheet, simply put in the value needed to hit AC 0 in the proper box, and everything higher and lower will auto-calc/fill.

There are some other changes I'll probably make (fonts and text size) and I'll post any update here and on G+.  I WILL NOT try to do a fully auto-calc sheet, as I need to be prepping 5 adventures for gary con, and don't have time for this.

But this is a perfectly serviceable sheet which will save our players from having to roll for Decipher Script to read the damn thing.

THANK YOU!!!!

I've been looking for one, Need to create a bunch of Premades for TotalCon 2018 in a couple weeks. I'll be running two runs of the Adventure Module I wrote up.

Thanks for posting! Already put the link up in my group chat.

Re: Form-fillable 2e Char Sheet

You're welcome, guys.  Again, someone else did the bulk of the work, but I'm glad I was able to contribute a little bit.

Re: Form-fillable 2e Char Sheet

Has anyone had any trouble printing this sheet after filling it in? I'm trying to get the pregens finished off for GaryCon. For some reason, on the closer printer to me this one prints only the first page, and that blank, without any of the field data. It also prints:

ERROR: typecheck
OFFENDING COMMAND: cshow

STACK:

It must be an error at the printer since I was able to print to the farther-away machine (which I have to hustle to before anyone wonders when we went into cryomancy!).

Just wonderin'.

I never had trouble in the past, but I haven't used it in a year.

EDIT -- Sorry, I was thinking of Maezar's sheet. I've used these ones very recently with no problems.

I've begun printing the character sheets for my games this morning and have not run into any issues.

Nope, no problems on 4 different printers from 2 different computers.

Re: Form-fillable 2e Char Sheet

Yeah, it's the printer driver. I have tried several now. There's something about booklet printing to ledger paper that just screws up every one I try on this machine. I can't ask for *too* much IT assistance since I don't print that much stuff for work . . .

Re: Form-fillable 2e Char Sheet

Rich, I can't thank you enough for this. It was a total lifesaver for my games at Gary Con and will make life incredibly easy for me in future cons. I loathe making my players fill out their own character sheets at cons and I despise making player try and read my chicken scratch.
