Character Sheet Templates

I was asked; a few days ago if I could put together a sheet template for 5e.

I finally figured out how to do that in such a way that you guys can just copy it out and fill it in, using Notepad, or just directly into the Other section of your character sheets.

You can find the template down in RPG Resources: Other.

If anyone has any requests for other systems, I’ll see what I can do. Don’t expect anything /too/ fancy; we’re still limited by old code. But I can streamline a little of the sheet building for you, at least.

Remember to close your tags! Very important! Also, for those of you who are website designers… please do not get clever and use CSS. Just don’t. Thank you.

LFP: Grande Temple of Jing (Pathfinder)

In his own words, as posted on the Portal forums:

Looking for players for my Grande Temple of Jing dungeon crawl. I currently have up to three slots available and would greatly appreciate at least one more player (two or even all three would of course be wonderful). I have a Cleric of Cayden Caileen currently being NPCed if anyone would like to take them over, but I expect most people would prefer to apply with their own characters, which is also more than acceptable.

I am going to request that anyone who puts in an application be able to get on the portal, read posts, and respond at least once per week. If you do not feel you can meet this requirement on a regular basis (obviously some weeks may be missed due to circumstances) then I ask that you not apply.

If you have interest in taking over the cleric please talk to me either here or in a message and I will get you the information you need and we can slip you in. If you wish to apply with your own character simply follow the rules in the world description. If you have any questions about these rules, feel free to ask me here or in a message.

LFP: Doomsday Dawn (PF2Playtest, Pathfinder)

In 4651 ar, a Chelish scholar named Imivus became fascinated by the history of Ancient Osirion, a fascination that swiftly grew to an obsession after Osirion’s government denied him permission to mount an expedition into the desert sands. Frustrated and with wounded pride, Imivus organized several secret, illegal expeditions, but he vanished in 4657 ar during his 11th such journey—an expedition that sought the Veinstone Pyramid of the Four Pharaohs of Ascension. Imivus hoped that discovering the rumored pyramid would establish a firm connection between Ancient Osirion and influence from an alien presence from the Dark Tapestry beyond the stars. In particular, Imivus was chasing the legend of a long-lost book called The Last Theorem—a book that he believed would answer all of his questions.

Welcome, fellow Portalites, to the End of the World…
This game is intended to run through the playtest scenario for Pathfinder 2; and as such, follows some pretty firm creation rules. Those of you who have not done so should probably go over to paizo.com and download the rulebook for the playtest.
There probably will be discussion of this thing in the Portal Discord; I can but encourage people to drop in and check that out.

 

Interested parties should definitely look at the full writeup for all the necessary information; and talk to Sylverthorne if there are questions.

GM’s Tip of the Week

How have I not talked about running combat yet?!
PSA for those of you interested; the Pathfinder 2 Playtest is officially available, and can be downloaded from Paizo.com for those interested. Interested parties looking either for a group or for a GM should either check in at Rondak’s Portal forums, or at Rondak’s Satellite; our Discord server.
Okay. Combat. Read on past the cut, folks!

GM’s Tip of the Week

Character creation is one of the fun things about being a player; you get to imagine being somebody else for a while; think up a whole personality, history and extended family. Some players don’t go quite that far, but I know a number of them that do, and really enjoy the process.
For a GM, who is running a whole menagerie of characters, many of whom are as far from human as one can easily get, it can be a serious project just to create a small town. And then you have encounters, and … whoo. Notebooks, just full of NPCS!

GM’s Tip of the Week

I seem to be doing a lot of callbacks to old posts lately, but new information does come up, and I’m always willing to re-examine old data, in the light of new discoveries, to see if a thing still works, or needs to be turned over and rebuilt.

Question of Sevens

Traditions in this town are odd; surely one escaped prisoner isn’t such a big deal… is it?

GM’s Tip of the Week

We got to talking a bit about CR – that’s Challenge Rating – a bit in Discord the other day; Demagor, Andi and I. CR is not really a useful measure of how dangerous a given opponent might be, though. The example creature in this case is an imp; a minor devil. On the face of them, Imps are tiny nuisances, barely a threat to a party. They don’t do very much damage, and unless you get a swarm of them, they’re not much of a threat.
Or.. are they?

Question of Sevens

The cave system has never been well-explored, so finding that it contained ruins was not so much of a surprise as it might have been. But the axe.. that was a moment of luck…

GM’s Tip of the Week

Hello, fellow Portalites!
So, last week I talked a little bit about including the full spectrum of sexuality and gender representation, writing people, writing real people. This week I’m going to talk about the subject that frequently reduces every one of us to giggling teenagers… which is fine, I’d rather touch the subject with humour than with judgment and unpleasantness.
