Character creation options


General Discussion


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Reading through the rulebook, I didn't like that I had to flip through so many pages to a)find all the options I needed to pick for a specific character, or b) compare the different classes on similar statistics (i.e., how does a wizard's skill points stack up to a bard's).

I created a spreadsheet with all the relevant statistics common to all classes. Here's the link - Character Options

If you find mistakes, or if you can see how to make this a better tool for character creation, please let me know. Who knows, maybe this (or a similar type of chart) could wind up in the final product (Hey, a fella can dream, can't he?).


I love this! A spread that has some sort of table/chart that I can use to quickly reference 2/3 of my character instead of having to check at least 4 different pages not including feats, skills, and equipment would be amazing! I've seen a few people say that charts scare new players, but I feel like it'd frustrate new players more to be trying to find all of the info they need than to have a spread that's just a chart labeled Quick Reference.

I couldn't agree with you more about what frustrates new players. That's partly why I created it - at least one person in my playtest group doesn't have much in the way of PF1 (or RPGs in general) experience. Of course, I also made it for myself - I got tired of flipping through the rule book.

I made a sharable folder on my Google Drive where I'm compiling all the useful sheets I created or found in the forums. When I found the sheet, I attributed authorship in the description.

Feel free to share the files, or the folder link.

Thank You

The Fighter is actually an Expert at Simple and Martial weapons and not Trained. And Trained in Exotic weapons. :)

Might I also suggest you use a different background color on every other line to make it easier to follow the same line to the end. Something not too different from white, perhaps light grey or something...

Nicely done, btw.
