Hi folks, here's my updated version of the editable BRP character sheet.

- you can add a picture in the top right hand of the sheet
- roll Character Attributes
- change the initial Skill values according to Fantasy/historic, Modern or Future (according to BRP rules)
- have all needed tables one click away during character creation
- Auto calculates the Characteristic rolls
- Auto calculates Skill Category Bonus
- EXPORT your character so you can import it later and edit it again with normal Acrobat Reader
- print the character sheet with a colorful font for easy reading
- now features a nicer font for easy reading
- nicely prints at 115% on an A4 paper sheet with nearly no wasted white margin

Please use Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the file, otherwise the Javascript routines in it will not work correctly or at all.

Download it from the Downloads section here!

Have fun!

thanks mate! Just keeping it up-to-date, and since my shiny color laser printer wants to see some action, I decided to make it more appealing. LOL.
Will send it over to Chaosium, maybe Charlie updates the old version as well. But it seem they are still busy with their website anyway.

This is very, very cool! What did you use to put it together?

Cheers,

Hi Nick,

I use Adobe Acrobat X and a bit of underlying Javascript (supported by Acrobat). Nothing fancy, but it takes some time to get it all lined up correctly. It's fun, though.

Huhn - shows how long it is since I paid attention to what's in Acrobat! Last time I looked properly at Acrobat forms they were a complete pain in the arse, but that was, er, 7 or or 8, I think...:o

It still is, Nick, it still is. It is slow, unresponsive at times and their own version of Javascript sucks at times. But unfortunately it is still the most uniform document type able to run on different operating systems and still looking the same on all machines. There are other possibilities, but they either cost money, are very specific or do not run on all the various devices on the market.

The original fillable Charsheet I did was done in Acrobat 7, which was made available by Chaosium in 2008/2009. It also featured a dice roller, but it was extremely slow to use. With Acrobat X it got a bit better, but due to space constrictions I eventually decided to drop it.
I do a lot of Acrobat forms these days (freelancer) and it is really interesting what more you can do with a pdf. I am currently working on a layered Charsheet PDF for the different settings (Fantasy, Modern, Future) that adds a thematic border around the sheet to make it a bit more fancy. I'll make it available once it is finished. :)

Cheers,

Rob
