Editable Character Sheet
« on: 10 November 2011, 06:57:19 »
Hello, I am going to be running a game of A Time of War over the interwebs using maptools. And I was looking for a character sheet that I and the players could use which they wouldn't have to print out first. And so I was wondering if you people had anything of the sort already made. Thank you.

I would be interested in an editable character sheet as well.  I'm currently working on a spreadsheet that I can use for my campaigns but I need something for a the FRAG Con in April ( http://www.reginagamers.com/index.php/convention ) and my spreadsheet won't be done in time.

I hate to be vain, but if you don't hate GoogleDocs, this is probably the best thing I can find! The thread post will be here: http://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php/topic,17504.0.html

Taron Storm's Character Sheet has worked great for what I need.  I've made some modifications and I will make them available if Taron Storm doesn't mind.

Not terribly surprising there are so many spreadsheets haunting about for AToW.  I have one, Daryk has one, and Kobura now has one.

Taron's sheet prints out to look like the official Character Sheet.  It was in excel format so I just added on the character creation calculations to make it easy for me to mass produce a bunch of PCs for the campaign.

That is something my sheet will never be, is print-friendly, but it's meant to 100% supplant or supplement the character sheet, since one of my players is a thousand miles from me, if we don't have internet access we can't play anyway.

@tbrminsanity:  Go ahead.  Please send me a copy.  Like I said, the original sheet was someone else's that I modified for my games.

Sounds great.  I will make the character sheet available on my website.  The link will be up shortly.

It probably could be reworked to where MS Office would like it.  I know my sheet had initial difficulties in that regard but I did manage to get those straightened out a revision or two ago.

I first read this as "edible" (little tired this morning) and wondered "why would someone want to eat their character sheet?!?"

just print on rice "paper" using non toxic inks so that you can dispose of the evidence

I will look into saving it into xls format.

This is turning out to be more of a pain then anticipated.  My computer has been having "issues" and as such it will be quite some time till I have the xls version uploaded.  In the mean time I recommend using either IBM Lotus Symphony, OpenOffice, or LibreOffice to open the file.  I used IBM Lotus Symphony to create the file so it will probably look best in that program.  If you need a link to any of these programs please PM me.

Like I said before, I would recommend opening the file in IBM Lotus Symphony as it was the program I used to create both files.  I have downloaded the file again and opened it in Polaris Office ( Android ) and I was able to edit the file there as well.  I would try saving the file to a Downloads folder, and then opening it from there.  You may be trying to edit the file from a temp folder and that can cause problems.  Let me know if you have any other issues.

I've changed my website from boxall.no-ip.org to www.thomasboxall.com.  It should work now.

I read the subject line as Edible Character Sheet!  I didn't want to know, but couldn't keep from clicking on the link.  Makes more sense now.  I think I better go have a morning snack break.....
