Pathfinder Character Sheet in Excel


Pathfinder RPG General Discussion

Osirion

Hello:

I am finishing up a Pathfinder RPG character sheet I've created as an Excel template. It's close enough to being finished that I decided to go ahead and post it here so I can get some feedback from the community.

Right now, I've set up a Google group for this file. You don't need to join the group to download the file or view discussions, but you do have to join to post messages. You can find the group here.

The sheet looks a lot like the character sheet in the Core Rulebook.Once you enter your ability scores, class, level and race, a lot of other stuff should fill in for you. Classes, races, feats and weapons are dropdown menus, and the sheet can easily be customized.

Right now, I am in the process of adding class abilities that apply 100 percent of the time (Bardic Knowledge, the barbarian's Fast Movement, the fighter's Armor Training and so on). Almost everything else (other than Spell DCs/Spells per Day) is finished.

The Beta 2 version of the character sheet has been posted. All class abilities that apply 100 percent of the time are now included, most notably the monk's Flurry of Blows ability, which can be calculated automatically from the Weapons dropdown menus.

Enjoy!

Again, this file is posted in a Google group. You do not need to join the group to download the file if you don't want to, though you have to be a member to post. Here's the link again: http://groups.google.com/group/snarfs-pathfinder-rpg-character-sheet


It opened as a text file for me (it's a .xlt file).

I have Office 07 if that means anything!

Keep up the good work :) - and are you planning to add traits and feats from other sources other than core? (Campaign, Companions, Chronicles, etc)

Maybe I'm not doing it right - but I don't see any "Special Abilities" listed with my characters (Rage for barbarian, Wholeness of Body for monk, etc)


Illmirranor,I've been working on an Excel sheet as well. You're welcome to borrow from it if there's anything that will help out:

erian_7's Excel-based Character Sheet

Everything in it is OGC, so nice and legal. I've got all the traits and feats from the various Pathfinder products through the recent Cheliax material in place.

Hey, guys:

Aaron, I'm not at all familiar with Office 2007. I built this in Excel 2003, and it's definitely an Excel template and not a text file. Maybe someone else more familiar with Office 2007 can shed some light on this, but I'm surprised it doesn't just open for you. Sorry you're having trouble.

Lorekeeper, the current version is just Core Rulebook. I may add more material later, depending on the reaction I get to this sheet.

Also, the sheet doesn't presently put anything in the special abilities section. I chose to limit the initial version to a two-page character sheet modeled after the sheet in the Core Rulebook. I also chose to not use any VBA code. That greatly limits my ability to program the special abilities section with things like Turn Undead and Barbarian rage, but I plan to add macros with more sophisticated code in future versions. I wanted to see how much I could do without macros.

Erian, thanks for the link. I hadn't seen your sheet but have downloaded it and will take a look!

For the "text" problem, since the file is saved as an Excel Template (FLT) file if you click that link directly in some browsers, it will indeed open up as a "text" file. Right click, "save as" to wherever you want, and it should open just fine (did for me). This may be a MIME type issue or some such.

You approach without macros is exactly my thought as well for my sheet--I want it to stay as simple as possible so other folks can modify it as desired. To that end, I've automated all the class abilities solely through formulas. I may not have a chance to look too much at your sheet in the next few days (on vacation in Disney World!) but I'll definitely check it out and give some feedback.

Hey, everyone:

I've finally finished up my Excel-based Pathfinder character sheet. You can find it here.

The sheet only incorporates rules from the Core Rulebook, but there are instructions in the FAQ that you can use to easily add classes, races and so on.

Enjoy!

Osirion

I forgot to mention that while you have to join this Google group to comment on the file, you don't need to join if you just want to download it. Just go to the Files section, right-click the file and select Save Target As or (in Firefox) Save Link As.


Wow, hell of a job! Thank you very much my friend!!!
