Plenty of Room for Characters & Useful Rules Summaries

****( )

The Starfinder Player Character Folio is just chock-full of detailed sheets to record all sorts of information about your character, interspersed with handy summaries of common rules and game mechanics. I used this for B'rrlb'lub, my late, lamented Dead Suns PC, and I found it a useful way to keep track of everything about him and the campaign. The folio consists of 16 pages bound by glossy, full-colour covers, with the front cover folding out to pack more information and the back cover containing a pocket to store handouts and so forth. The most accurate way to give a full account of what it includes is (I'm sorry to say) a page-by-page breakdown.

The inside flap of that cool cover features some more awesome artwork, a list of what type each action in combat is (i.e., a standard, a move, a swift, etc.), and the table that shows how many experience points it takes to level up and at what levels PCs get ability increases, feats, and theme bonuses. That flap then folds out for a two-page interior. The left side is the first part of the character sheet, with space for ability scores, armor class, saving throws, senses, speed, and initiative. There's a lot of space provided here, so things will be easy to read. The right side has a pocket for papers and a very useful summary of common combat actions and maneuvers, what different types of cover and concealment provide, and the effects of common conditions. The general idea is that people don't have to pause the game to flip through the Core Rulebook to find out the effects of being fatigued, for example.

Page 1 ("Skill Checks") lists the tables of skill DCs from that section of the Core Rulebook. There's not a description of the skills themselves, and usually the DCs would be something the GM would determine, so this may be of less usefulness to many players.

Page 2 ("Defense") contains a lot of space to record armor, defensive abilities, and any other pieces of equipment that contribute to armor class and saving throws.

Page 3 ("Offense") is basically the same thing in the other direction. There's space to record full details for six different types of attacks, so if you're packing the veritable golf-bag of weapons, you will be all set here.

Page 4 ("Skills") is where you record everything skill-related about your character, including conditional modifiers and special skill abilities. I appreciated having the extra space that traditional character sheets don't provide.

Page 5 ("Feats") has lines for *29* different feats, which tells me they maybe should have sectioned things off better--perhaps by leaving more room for descriptions of Racial Traits and Theme Benefits (also on this page).

Pages 6-7 (Equipment") has a really nice way to visually keep track of which augmentations are in what body parts, along with space to record weapons, armor, regular gear, money, and even "other valuables" and holdings". I would have preferred more lines for regular gear (I came close to filling that up around Level 6) and a better section on Carrying Capacity.

Pages 8 ("Spells") and 9 ("Drone") are ones that you may or may not have any use for, depending on what class you're playing. But if you are playing a Mystic, Technomancer, or Mechanic, you'll be glad they're there.

Pages 10-11 ("Background") are really important, and something that regular character sheets rarely have room for. There's extensive place to record descriptions, personality, history, family members, homes, affiliation, and more. Being asked to describe B'rrlb'lub's "Quirks", "Phobias," and "Catchphrases" really helped me flesh out the character before I even started playing him.

Pages 12-13 ("Adventure Log") contains a section to track the advancement of your PC as they level up, a section to list allies and foes ("What's that guy's name again?"), a full page to record brief notes about each session in the campaign, and (I guess just for fun) a section on "Achievements" where you can keep track of trivia like "Number of times hit by a crit", "Greatest number of foes in one fight", or "New Sentient Species Contacted".

Pages 14 ("Starship") and 15 ("Starship Combat") contain a starship character sheet and a summary of starship combat. The character sheet is the same one from the Core Rulebook, but it's useful to have it here. The summary of starship combat is more GM-oriented, and doesn't have what players would really need: summaries of common actions depending on crew role and their DCs.

Page 16 ("Notes") contains only a half-page space for miscellaneous notes, and I very quickly filled it up. The bottom half of the page is for Starfinder Society information, including which boons are being slotted.

The inside back cover is just credits and license information, but the pocket continues the summaries of common conditions.

I do have two criticisms of the folio. The first is there's no space specifically devoted to class features. With B'rrlb'lub, for example, I had to squeeze the list and description of his envoy improvisations into the "Other Valuables" section of the equipment page. Every class has their own special features that they'll have to find room to record. Second, the layout of the pages wasn't always intuitive, and I often found myself flipping back and forth trying to find where something was located.

Still, even with those complaints taken into account, I found this a worthwhile and useful way to record information about my character, and being able to keep little things like handouts and post-it notes in one place was an added bonus. When starting a new campaign, one could certainly do worse than forking over $ 10 to play in style.


Nice folio

*****

A nice colorful booklet.
Keep your info' together.
Get a cool bonus for SFS players.


PDF Out of Order

***( )( )

I can't understand why the pdf of the character sheet would have the first page all the way at the back. Sure, you can overcome this, but it's just sloppy. Please fix.


Very, very good

****( )

This is an excellent item for not only write-ups for favorite characters, but also has information one needs without going to the books AND gets the creative juices going for little things like family, background, and so forth. This is not something for a disposable character-not at its price.
Another option is buying and downloading the PDF copy.


****( )

If I had but a single significant complaint, it would be that the player info page (name, stats, etc) is way off toward the back of the pdf and that means babying a printing session if I want double sided pages.

Beyond that, this seems to be much improved compared to the PF one. When printing a PF folio from my friend's pdf, the greys were always so light I could barely read the text, no matter the printer settings.
This problem is completely nonexistent in the SF folio and indeed is almost replaced by a problem of large areas of dark color. Fortunately, it's not too bad on most pages so I'll be happy with the readability.

Hmm... don't suppose there's any screenshots of what the sheets look like are there? Probably not.

How similar is it to the Pathfinder Character Folio?

Shadow Lodge

Can you please try to make the folder part of it wider than the pf version? The pf version is not very good as a folder because it's not wide enough to put a letter size piece of paper in it without folding it.

I love Charter folios like these...as I am sure they can tell by looking at all the Pathfinder ones I have gotten...so I am glad this is being released the same time as the Core book.

@Eric: I believed the fixed the issue with the PF Character Folios with the latest print run (though I may be wrong as I don't have one handy atm).

Is the PDF version form-fillable/saveable? I.e. can I fill in character details, save them, level up later, and print it out, all without grubby handwriting?

Dark Archive

With this available on august 17th, when can we expect the "normal" two page (i think) Starfinder character sheets to be downloadable for free?

If it is like the Pathfinder one, then no. It is not form fillable.

The Character Sheet and Ship Sheet are already available. You can find then in the "read more" section on the Starfinder Core Rulebook page.

That's the normal basic sheets, they're asking about the expended folio sheets (this product).

I just got mine in the mail this morning and I have got to say it is gorgeous. Not only does it have all the room I need for character creation, it also has a list of common skill DCs and a list of common conditions as well as a SFS fame tracker. The inside cover appears to be able to be written on, unlike the pathfinder ones I have at home. All in all, I love it.

I got mine today but there is no first page with Character name and attributes in it. Am I missing something here?

The inside of the front cover should "open out" to reveal the main character sheet, a cheat sheet on combat and a pocket for holding player handouts.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Maps, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

The character sheet is actually near the end of the PDF, if that is what you are looking at.

Man, I got mine in the mail today, and wow! It is too pretty to actually use haha.


If we preordered as part of the subscription shouldnt we have access to it by now?

It's part of the Starfinder Accessiores subscription so ... yes, if you are subscribed to that line.


Can anyone who has purchased the PDF let me know if it is form-fillable/saveable? I.e. can I fill in character details, save them, level up later, and print it out, all without grubby handwriting?

I don't know, but traditionally Paizo PDFs of a similar nature are not fillable, so I doubt it.

As I understand it, it's due to limited granularity in the security settings of PDFs, so that the only way they could allow that is by removing some anti piracy measures.

Ah ok. Thank you.


Is it just me or the order of the pages odd and randomly placed?


It is very pretty. And pretty useful for rules summaries. Too nice to write on though


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Yes, the order of the pages in the PDF certainly seems randomly organised. I used up a lot of paper and toner before I could get a usable order of pages. :(

I just opened the PDF up in GIMP and reordered the pages to my liking.
