I've been working on this since the playtest was announced, and I'm finally ready to preview it. Here's a character sheet for

  • Your character portrait, chosen from a long list or upload your own
  • Extra pages for spellbooks, animal companions, etc
  • Minis to cut out and play
  • Pages for GMs: maps, NPCs etc
  • 100% free and open source

I like the way you did the proficiency rank indicator! And that it have the same look (shape) as your alignment. :P


Dotting for when can view on laptop/pc...

Here's the second public preview:

Silver Tooth Flynn, Human Monk Pirate

In this case, we have a pirate monk with the dragon stance. The Pirate archetype isn't in the final book, so this is based off the playtest version combined with the official monk.

Q: When will this be available?
There's still a lot of work still to do - I only just got the book, after all. My rough goal is to get it ready by the end of 2019, but that's not a fixed deadline.

Q: Will it cost anything?
No. This is free and open source.

Q: Where can I follow progress on the project?
On Facebook, Patreon or GitHub Patrons get regular previews and behind the scenes access.

Q: Are you still supporting Pathfinder First Edition?
The existing character sheets for 1st Edition aren't going away, but I'm not going to be adding anything new to them either. I just don't have the time to do everything.

Here's the next preview:

Fizzlepop, Gnome Rogue Bard

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


These are phenominal and I am about 87% sure that I probably used a character sheet from you for PF1 because they also were phenomenal. I can't wait until they are finalized.

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 -


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


Loving the character sheets and am excited for the eventual full roll-out.

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.


Fair enough :)

Sweet, can't wait. You make the best character sheets.
