Classic Old-School Character Class Reference Cards (Old-School Essentials, OSE, B/X, OSR)

Selected Option:
PDF + Card(s)

Less Paperwork, More Play! Less Downtime, More Dungeon Delving! Speed Up Your Character Creation.

This set of printed character class reference cards is compatible with Old-School Essentials Classic Fantasy. It contains class reference cards for cleric, dwarf, elf, fighter, halfling, magic-user, and thief player characters. For our gaming group, copying character class information to character sheets was time-consuming and boring. They just wanted to quickly grab a handy reference sheet with all the needed details and play. That is why I created these reference cards--to help facilitate rapid class selection by players (they just pass them around) and to eliminate the need to copy class abilities and other information from the game books to character sheets. The cards are a huge timesaver during character creation and help you get your players into the action as soon as possible.

Two bonus Magic Use reference cards are also included--one that summarizes the Arcane magic use rules and another that summarizes the Divine magic use rules. These are a helpful reference for players who haven't memorized these rules and want to play a spellcaster.

Although these class reference cards are specifically designed to be compatible with Old-School Essentials, they will also work with other B/X-derived OSR games as well.

The sturdy, double-sided, low-gloss, UV-coated cards are printed in a 6" x 6" format so they are easily readable and can conveniently fit right next to a character sheet without taking up too much space. Only the Classic Fantasy classes are included because the Advanced Fantasy classes are not open content.

Product Information
File Size:

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.
