Basic Fantasy Character Sheet

Total newbie here. I noticed that there are a number of character sheets available in the Profiler, but a Basic Fantasy sheet is not among them. The BF character sheet is very simple, and I am wondering if anyone here has any experience using a character sheet that is pretty much just a blank sheet of paper with a few notes on it. Perhaps more specifically, does everyone here use the Profiler, or do y'all every just keep your character sheets in your game's thread?

Gary Elf Fighter Armor Class 17
Level 1 Hit Points 6
XP 10 Next: 2,000 Attack Bonus + 1
STR 16 (+2) Death/Poison 12
INT 9 Wands 13
WIS 8 (-1) Para/Stone 14
DEX 13 (+1) Dragon Breath 15
CON 13 (+1) Spells 17
CHA 11 Money 15 GP

Hi there, mpls.

A lot of people use the Profiler, but that's for the games which have character sheets. Anything else usually makes a text-based sheet like the one you just typed up, or depending on the game, spreadsheets, PDFs, and other options. I don't think there has been a demand for Basic Fantasy to date, which is why our very busy coders haven't attempted to get one set up. Unfortunately when we're volunteers, we have to work around our own schedules.

I'd say your best bet is the table in a game thread somewhere. Most GMs post a Characters thread just for each character to be listed, that'd probably be where I'd put it, potentially in secret text if you desire to keep your scores hidden.

Thanks! That sounds perfect. I was debating shoe-horning the BF sheet into, say, a 5e sheet. But I'm glad to hear that people would be fine just keeping them in the thread.

For something we don't have on hand, I don't think anyone would mind. (Provided you teach them the table code...)

I would suggest a 3.5 or PF sheet.
It has more of an 'open' layout. Editable skill list and large tracts of blank lines.
