Color Coded - Auto Calculating - Character Sheet for 5e Dungeons and Dragons

Suggested Price $1.00

This is a color coded character sheet for 5e Dungeons and Dragons. It is both form fillable and auto calculating. First put in your level, and then your abilitiy scores and watch your skills and abilities auto-populate. 

In 1.92, additional drop down boxes for SRD class, race, and alignment have been added. Weapons and damage type also help for quicker adding of weapons. Encumbrance is autocalculated if you enter numbers in the lbs. boxes, and if you do not use encumbrance, it is easy to ignore.  Most of the character fluff is removed and is designed so you can have your skills and abilities at your fingertips. 1.92 also includes a black and white version that too is form fillable and auto calculating. The third file is a simple color print version in case you want to do everything by hand (ahem, bards). 

The file was created for my wife so she could use her laptop during play, and the top information being the most necessary. The color coding was designed to help an eleven year old child play, but it proved to be a big hit with the local players in my area and my play testers. 

By moving character ideals to another page, this allows quier access to your mechanics, which you will be using long after your memorized your character's backstory and faults.

I believe the majority of people will be able to use the character sheet without issue, auto calculating and then printing are just a few clicks away, but those using digital devices will see an even greater case of versatility as you can auto-update on the fly.

I hope you enjoy, and as always, if there is anything I can do to improve, please leave constructive criticism in the comments and I will be happy to answer and help.

The file has been fully tested in Adobe DC and Pro, as well as Foxit Phantom and Foxit Reader.

Uploaded 2.2 with Intelligence Saving Throw bonus fixed, along with another bug I found while fixing the Intel ST. Coin weight also wasn't calculated correctly into total weight. Thanks for letting me know about the bug, much appreciated.

I like the character sheets, and my players found them useful. Only real issue we had with them was the placement of the stat vs bonus. Not having the option to place the stat value in the large box, and instead having the bonus there "feels icky". We all prefer to have the bonuses in the smaller boxes and the actual stats in the larger boxes, even if "the bonus is what's used the most". Also, the character notes section on Gnome v20 only allows a single line of text that is infinitely scrolling. Otherwise, you're doing a great job with this!

Will fix the single line of text and upload 2.1 as soon as that is done. I won't send an email blast because I should be able to get it done tonight and don't want to spam everyone with each little update. I can easily switch the "icky" part for you. 50/50 toss up on where people like those stats and I had to pick one or the other. I'll think of something and make it work for you. Thanks for the compliment though, I will keep working on it.

2.1 is up with all fields tested and fixed for the single line problem. You will want to download option B, which switches the stats and bonus boxes. Should be more appealing to your group now.

Is there a way to include expertise in this form. I love the rest! But I can't manually edit my skill checks.

Funny you should ask because I'm working on Expertise right now. That will be v2.0. No ETA, but should be very soon. I have the code down (fingers crossed), but I need to rearrange some of the graphics to make it look nice and not just crammed in there.

Although I downloaded this, I cannot get any of the form-fillable blocks to work. Given this, though, I like the color-coded idea!

Glad you like the color codes, but I would like you to get the full use out of it. If you start basic, and just enter the character level, does anything happen?

Updated to 1.92 and removed the Watermark that I had drivethru put on. Please give it another go and see if this version works out for you. Thank you.

Suggestions (keeping in mind I'm entirely ignorant to any process involved in the creation of this, just spitballing - it's already great. Feel free to tell me to shove it if suggestions are unrealistic).

- A slight margin in Combat and Non-Combat skills boxes, so that text isn't touching the left-most border. For tidiness' sake.

- Drop-downs for Class / Race / Allignment / Religion, etc from a pool of options listed in PHB.

- Carrying on from the previous point, Hit Die calculation. So choosing class + race + constitution modifier calculates HP during pc creation.

- Drop down for equipped armor type with a check box for a shield (yes/no) for AC calculation with the dex modifier that comes during pc creation. Can leave the misc option for those with magical items, that may or may not be homebrew

- Maybe a button to randomize ability scores, to emulate the rolling of dice. Or you could build in a point-buy system with the standard 27 points - or...See more

Thank you for the suggestions. I'm working on better aligning the boxes now and will update (to 1.9) when I get that and a few more small projects done. Race, class, and alignment dropdown boxes are in the works, but no ETA, I can only say I am trying to get to them ASAP. I'm still reading the SRD to make sure everything stays legal. Unfortunate the rest of your suggestions are a bit out of my league at the moment, but I will look into it. Only started learning Java and form fillable PDFs two weeks ago.

With that said, thank you first, for your purchase, it really does help keep me going. Second, thank you for the suggestions. The more suggestions I get, the easier it is for me to spot potential problems or ideas others are looking for. I will keep looking at Java ideas and improve on them as I am able to.

You're doing a great job, man. I'll definitely be checking back to update to the new versions as you put them out. It's really nice thus far.

Thank you, greatly appreciate it! I will send an email to everyone when it is updated, that way you will not have to check from time to time. Save you the hassle.

Seems that the watermark was locking down the file so everything was locked out, which explains why it worked for me but not others. I removed the watermark. Fully download the file, open, and it should work. If it doesn't, please let me know and I will fix any further problems. Thank you to all who have been patient with me.

To be honest, I'm not sure. You would have to give me a translation, but I do not want to publicly post my email or other personal information and I see no way to privately message a creator, though I'm new to this so I may be wrong. I just need a translated sheet and I can do the rest.

On the left panels in the Publisher tab, there is a Contact link. Send me a translation through there and I will do what I can and post a Spanish version.

Put in your level, and then your character stats (18, 11, 13, etc) in the top boxes. Your modifiers and everything will auto calculate from there. Let me know if you are still having issues from there and I will double check the file. Thank you for your purchase.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
