Don't leave Waterdeep without it. Sep 19, 2006
This is a great product. I have tried many of the aftermarket character sheets, and this is by far the best one. It contains just about all of the information you may need, as well as, a lot of stuff you don't. The inside cover even contains some basic statistics that are helpful to PC's, similar to the way the DM screen provides statistics to the DM. The paper is a nice heavy stock, which is key for all of the erasing that is done during leveling. Perhaps one of the most fun sections is in the back where you can track your achievments from toughest monster slain to number of times you saved the world.
That being said, there are a couple of ommissions. The turning check ommission is a big one, as every party has a healer, and almost all of them are clerics. Another odd omission is is the lack of a Grapple box. The current 3.5 character sheets have one, so why not this? Odd.
Despite these small oversites, I would still give this a 5 because it improves on the standard character sheet in so many ways. If you play D&D at all, definitely make this a priority puchase.
Throrough, but not complete Apr 1, 2004
This is the best character record-keeper I've found so far, apart from the personalized, made-at-home variety. Of course, if you have the time to type up your very own complete and thorough character sheet, you wouldn't be looking to buy one on-line, right?
Of the kind that require money to change hands, this is the best. You can keep track of your characters progress by levels, very handy for those times when you drop a level, there's a section for equipment, spells, feats, abilities, skill, all nicely laid out so that you can not only write in the bare facts but have rooms for things like spell descriptions, location of items and the like. The sections for cohorts, familiars, mounts, followers, contacts and places you've visited are also handy, enabling you to flesh out your character's world all within the tidy pages of one little volume.
My qualms with this item are few, but here they are. First of all, there's no section for turning undead. It seems a minor exclusions, but it would've been a fairly slim box to include and would have been indispensable for the divine spellcaster. Likewise, arcane spellcasters can write out just about everything for their character except the saving throw type for their spells. It's nice to be able to have the spell name, level, description and saving throw DC all in one neat row, but unless you've memorized if a Will save negates, or a Fortitude save halves, you're still going to have to look up to spell, so no time is gained.
Still, I've used four of these so far and definitely plan on using more. A wise and useful investment.
Great for going beyond the 2 page standard sheet Jan 26, 2004
I absolutely love this item. Yes, you can print out a D&D character sheet for free online, or copy the one from the book, but if you really want to develop your character, this is the way to go.
The format is easy to read, and you have plenty of space to fit all your feats, languages, and especially items, separated into magical and non-magical. Ample areas to insert stats for familiars/cohorts/paladin warhorse etc. are also nice. There is also an area to log highlights of your adventures, and to add contacts your character has made - very handy for remembering all the names of people you've come across.
To expedite looking up stats for the character, I recommend removing the cover (easy to do, it's just stapled on) and putting it into a clear report cover (which you can get cheap from any office supply store). You can then easily stick post-it notes to the plastic for current hps, treasure gained, notes, etc.
This product has been updated to v3.5 compatibility, though I haven't found it on this site.com.
