Happy Inktober! I've been doodling bits and bobs for hand-drawn OVA character sheets for the campaign I'm about to run. I've also been working (for a million years!) on a bestiary of sorts to use in that kind of game. Up until now I've just had them scribbled on 3x5 cards (though I'm slowly transcribing them all to a digital format) but I decided to make something fun for them for this next game!

I really wanted some feedback on these first before I do a full character sheet.

Image

This should be the front and back for a monster or NPC card. It's designed to fit four to a sheet of 8.5x11 paper. (Alternately, you could just keep them on the same side of a half sheet of paper, which you could put in one of those half-sized binders. I really like those, too.)

I want to put monster info on them and laminate them so I can write on them with a dry-erase marker, I think. Any excuse to use my laminator.

Space for a little illustration and notes/info up top (plus Threat Value! very important) and Abilities/Weaknesses at the bottom. The back side has all the combat stats and room for four attacks. In addition to the Health, Endurance, Defense, and Threat Value that the sample characters in the book have, I also made spots for the base DX and Attack roll, as well as Initiative.

I've gotta run to my Friday Rolemaster game so I'll show off the fully finished cards when I get back!

I almost forgot -- I messed up the measurements in that first image and made them about a 1/2 inch too short. The final ones are fixed, and the attack spacing is way less wonky.

In the end.... I forgot to label the Abilities/Weaknesses section. ;_; I'll probably just write it on there before I make copies haha.

(Full size.)

So... there's a spot for all your combat stats, including initiative roll. You add up all that stuff (minus initiative) to find your TV, so that's pretty convenient? The little heart and sweatdrop are just for decoration but I guess you could put the bonus from Abilities/Weaknesses in there too if you wanted.

Notes... definitely put Armor and Resistance/Vulnerability in here.

The Items section is something I needed for my own OVA game. The blocky bits are for Gear Abilities, and you can put other stuff on the lines below that. And your money in the gold coin! :D

The Abilities/Weaknesses section is customized for my game, too. Underneath every Ability, there's 15 dots -- those are for experience points. A +1 Ability costs 1, +2 costs 2, +3 costs 4, etc. The same as the scaled costs in the book. For Weaknesses, I decided it would cost 5 points to buy down a point of a Weakness.

Lemme know what you think!

I can't tell you how much I love these sheets! The iconography for everything is brilliant—from the ! TV to the sweatdrop Endurance to the die-shaped Roll. I know this is geared towards your fantasy campaign, but the chubby little stars and hearts make me want to abscond with it for some magical girl hijinx.

Thanks for sharing!

Everything is better with magical girls, Clay. Everything.

This was a lot of fun. I have two or three sketchbook pages of little icons and stuff that I doodled all separately before I put them together in a sheet. It counted for Inktober because I did it all in pen, ha.

ALSO. My stars are chubby and round because I've tried for years to practice making them even and I've never been able to, so I started drawing them using circles as guidelines.
