Interesting. It gives me ideas for how to add something like this as part of my character sheets project.

Saedar is correct, check out Paizo's Community Use Policy and make sure you're using it legally. You're probably fine, Paizo are pretty generous and tolerant, but it's best to make sure.

Ahem. Please check the date of my previous message.

I'm looking to make a slight adjustment to the style of the Starfinder sheets. What do people make of this?

2020 version

(and in Italian)

The design of these is getting better and better. It's taking a long time, but I really think they're going to be amazing.

The 10th Anniversary edition of Kingmaker, due out some time this year, is likely to include more complete hex crawl rules building on the hexploration section of the Gamemastery Guide.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

The three new classes from the Character Operations Manual are now live: the Biohacker, Vanguard and Witchwarper.

Also included in this release are the new starship roles, and an Italian translation.

I added entries for TOS 2nd PRO and Pathfinder 2e Autosheet. Are there any more I should add?

Are there any PDF calculator sheets designed for the 2e animal companions/familiars?

I'm maintaining a list here: List of alternative character sheets. There are several in that list that are fillable PDFs, though I don't think any that do animal companions.

If you find one, let me know so I can add it to the list.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Are they huge?

What's the state of the Community Use Package now? There's some 2e content, but I still don't see things like the action icons anywhere.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

The action icons are supposed to be part of the Community Use Package, but I don't think they've got round to adding them yet.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Here's a new version of the inventory, separated from the Combat page.

This will be optional; the default will still be the current layout, with the inventory on the combat page.

Combat · Inventory

The Starfinder Psionics kickstarter has been over for more than a year and no updates in months. Others have posted that the founder is not responding to any messages thru social media. I've asked for my pledge back. I feel for him if he ran into issues but he can't just keep our money.

Kickstarter isn't a purchase. It's an investment in something you'd like to see happen, but which isn't yet certain. Sometimes this means they fail. But even when they do, the money has often been spent on real things, in an effort to try and achieve it. Refunding that money would mean a sudden, punishing debt to the creators.

It would be a different situation if a bad guy took your money and ran away with it, but that's not what happened here.

I've got prototypes up for the three new classes in the Character Operations Manual. Check them out here:

Biohacker · Vanguard · Witchwarper

These are complicated classes. Two of them ended up spanning multiple pages, and I could yet decide to change the layout.

Feedback would be appreciated!

I realise it's been three months since I last posted an update here. That's because I've been hard at work putting in ALL the data. Patrons now have access to all the classes, all the subclasses, all the ancestries and heritages, everything from the core rulebook.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

If you see one I've missed, let me know. I don't know everything.

And, y'know, post if you see a thing you really like, even if it's already on the list.

I've added a couple of extra links to this.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Today I learned about Strawberry Machine Cake :D


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

That's a very good point, different speeds are a thing.

I'll have to have a play and see what feels right. I don't want to take away from the simple style that works for most people, so what I'll probably do rather than move the inventory to another sheet is just to add an optional extra sheet for more stuff.

I've been preoccupied with Pathfinder 2e for last... year or so now, and kind of left Starfinder alone. But the Character Operations Manual is coming out soon with new classes, which will force me get back to it.

I would think that space for six to eight weapons would be enough for most characters. I have some gun-toting fools who need more, but maybe that's just me.

When I was doing my sheets for D&D 3.5, I figured there would be nobody out there who needed space for more than 5 classes on a single character. That would be nuts, right? Well...

Have you considered an additional weapon or gear sheet.

I really wanted to cut down on the number of pages when I was making the Starfinder sheets, as well as avoid making the assumption that it's the same as Pathfinder. Scrolls, spells and wands? Nope. Slots for magic items? Not any more. Squeezing all of the inventory onto the combat sheet may have been a step too far, but it felt more Starfinder-y.

What spaces do you think would make sense on an inventory page?

Are these actually for people with dyslexia? Or is that just the name?

It's just a name, but I have looked into what people with dyslexia need, and I continue to try and improve.

For example, I've looked at both the practice and the evidence for dyslexic fonts, and found both lacking. Experiments find that, even when users stated a preference for dyslexic fonts, they didn't show a notable improved reading ability.

The most important thing you can do to make life easier for dyslexic readers is simply to reduce the amount they have to read. This lines up with the approach I've taken all along. Long sections of text are broken down into punchy statements using the minimum number of words. That's good for everyone, not just for dyslexic users.

The new version of the character sheets is planned to offer two accessible modes: High Contrast, which uses strong black on white rather than subtler colours; and Large Print, which makes everything bigger (adjusting layouts and skipping elements if necessary). I may also add a Dyslexic version that turn off the all-caps styles and inverts the header colours to make them easier to read.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I'm still working on the class-specific details and the mechanism for building your own, but to give you something to play with right now, here's a generic classless character sheet in five colours:

- Magenta - Blue - Teal - Lime - Orange -

I've incorporated entries from that Reddit link.

Also, if I could make a suggestion? The current sheet is extremely wide to the point it doesn't even fit on my screen, and it would be easier to read/use if it was narrower. I'd personally resize many of the columns to be just enough for the text they contain (Design, Fillable, & Status all have consistent entry lengths and unused space), make the Name column have text wrapping so it can be less wide while still displaying all info with no cut-off, and either replacing the URLs with text that just says "Link" while being clickable with a hyperlink or making the columns have text wrapping set to "clip" instead of the default "overflow" and making the columns shorter that way.

Good point. I've made some of these changes, and I'll do more later.

Somebody else had the same idea, and has been compiling a list of resources here:

Resources Guide on r/Pathfinder2e.

I'll incorporate those into this list either tonight, or soon.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Added Wheldrake's entry to the Classic section.

I recommend creating a thread for it.

I've started compiling a list of all the different character sheets that are out there. It's not complete yet, but it's a good start.

Link to the full list

It divides the character sheets into three styles: Original ones with their own layout, Classic with a retro D&D 3e / Pathfinder 1e style layout, and Variant based on the official Paizo character sheet.

It notes whether the character sheet is fillable, what format it uses, and whether it's actually ready. I've also tried to include a discussion link where possible.

If you spot an error or would like to suggest an addition, either comment directly on the spreadsheet directly, post below, or PM me.

Okay, I'm going to start putting together a list of all the custom character sheets. I'll try to find all the ones I can, on this forum and elsewhere, but it would help if you drop me a PM letting me know about any I may miss.

Can somebody post an example of the print character sheets that HLO generates?

I always felt, in PF1 and D&D3.5, that the first couple of levels were sacrificial. Not just in power level, but character. Any reasonable backstory for somebody who's voluntarily setting out on an adventure inevitably describes somebody who's at least level 3, in order for their skills, feats etc to line up with what the character should have. The new heritage and background setup does a lot to fix that.

It seems like PF2 characters just start at a more sensible level.

Is anyone gathering these sheets in a central location yet, besides this thread?

Not yet.

There's quite a variety of them. How would they best be organised? I'd think:

  • Variants of the Paizo sheet
  • Variants of the Paizo sheet, form fillable
  • Online (Google Docs etc)
  • Original design
  • Original design, form fillable

    I'm still rearranging things every few days, so nothing's set in stone yet. Feedback is appreciated, though.

    The rule would really only make sense of there was a corresponding rule stating that young animal companions are one size category smaller than their mature version, and if the stats for creatures reflected that. But that doesn't line up with nature.


    Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

    It's true, RAW do appear to suggest that a young pony progressing to mature would go from medium to large.

    Obviously this is incorrect, as ponies are different breeds. They don't grow up to be horses.

    I think any reasonable GM would allow you to override this rule with the sensible behaviour.
