So, long time readers of this blog will know that I have an irrational dislike of some of the formatting decisions for 4e. I totally understand that I have a minority view, and I’m cool with that. I’ve gotten past it.
One area that every gamer thinks they’re better at than the pros is character sheet design. The internet is chocka with the damn things. I’ve had a go at it myself using my childlike ability with Word to come up with the character booklets (linked at the top of this screen). I did this because I wanted to have char sheets that I could hand to a newbie with some hope that they would be able to get playing within 30 minutes. I’ve had success with my sheets, go me.
And now WotC have shown me how it should really be done. At the upcoming D&D Experience show there will be a new delve to play through and a new set of characters too. They’ve put this Githzerai Monk sheet up as a preview, and I love it. That’s not exactly a straightforward class and race combo for the casual D&Der, yet they’ve managed to make it all go onto a double sided A5 sheet and make it colourful to boot. The swine.
