Roleplaying games are all about your character. Whatever your game, you spend a lot of time looking at your character sheet so it's worth having a good one.
We here present a surprisingly complete set of character sheets for Pathfinder RPG and for Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 (see the small print below), covering hundreds of classes, along with familiars, spell books, NPCs and map templates.

When I started playing D&D, I wasn’t satisfied with the character sheets it came with. In investigating the other options, I found many with features that were interesting, but none entirely to my satisfaction. I started compiling a list of desired features, and soon found myself designing my ideal character sheet.
The feature I was most certain of was that each class would have a sheet of its own. There are hundreds of classes you can play, each with their own rules and variants, and a one-size-fits-all sheet can’t possibly do them justice.

When you play a roleplaying game with friends, you each play a character. A character sheet is where you keep track of what your character knows, what they're capable of, what they're carrying and what state they're in.
These character sheets are for the Pathfinder RPG and Dungeons & Dragons 3.5.
The standard character sheets for both D&D 3.5 and Pathfinder try to cover all different classes and all possible characters with the same design, meaning a lot of space is wasted while important details get overlooked.
These sheets are different for every character. On top of the core pages each class gets a page of its own, as well as extra support pages for inventory, spells, animal companions etc. The result is a comprehensive set of sheets tailored to your character. You even get to pick a colour.
First, go to the Download tab and start building your character for either Pathfinder or Dungeons & Dragons. After a few steps you'll be able to download a customised PDF containing exactly the pages you need.
The character sheets are made to be printed on A4 paper (or A5, which is A4 cut in half), not US Letter. Since they'll be written on in pencil and rubbed out a lot, I recommend printing them on thick paper (120gsm) or thin card (160gsm), and using both sides of the sheet.
Where a page has two A5 halves, you should be able to print the same page on both sides of A4 then cut it in half.
Yes, you'll still need the rulebooks to play the game. These character sheets don't replace them at all, they just make it easier to keep track of.
Both Paizo and Wizards of the Coast have created great stuff, and I wholeheartedly encourage you to go out and buy it. The same goes for any third party material you play with.
No, these are made to be printed out and written on in pencil.
No, because doing that for the entire set of hundreds of pages and making sure all the calculations are correct would be too much work.
Other people are free to take a copy of my sheets and add features like that, and several have made a start on it. Have a look around various forums to find them.
Yes, the sheets have been translated into several languages and more translations are in the works, but it's a very big job. Contact me if you'd be interested in helping to translate it into your own language.
I'm English. American spelling is available as a Language option, but it isn't and never will be the default.
These character sheets are free, and will always remain so. In fact, they're more than just free, they're open source. That means anybody can change them to suit their needs. Head over to the Open Source tab for more information.
You can send me a little something if you like:
Or if you're ever in southern England, drop me a line. I rarely say no to a pint of real ale.
Quite possibly, but my time is limited. My focus is on the most played classes, and I'm limited to ones where the information is legally available.
Maybe, if they're reasonably popular, but it's not my priority.
This project has been much improved by the suggestions of hundreds of people. If you have feedback, suggestions or improvements, I'd love to hear them. Leave me a message with this button:
This project is more than just free. These sheets are everybody's to change and use. Anybody can take the building blocks and use them to create new versions or whole new works of their own based on this design.
It means everything that makes this project work has been published. All the artwork, script files, source code and other stuff are available for you to download.
It means that all this stuff has been released under a license that lets you change them and use them in new ways (provided you stick to a few simple rules).
It means you can contribute back to this project, and your work can be of benefit to others.
And it means that this project can continue even if the original creator (me) loses interest and takes it away, as long as a copy survives somewhere.
Anything covered by the license, including:
If you make useful changes, I encourage you to give them back to the community. Send me a message with your contact details, and if I like your work I'll incorporate it into the project. Even if I don't, you can still publish it on Paizo's forums or the web for others to see.
You're not allowed to:
Using the sheets as you like isn't stealing them, it's permitted and encouraged.
The only way you could “steal” the sheets is to plagiarise them - to claim that you made them yourself. Don't do that.
