Pathfinder™ Character Sheet
These character sheets are not endorsed or licensed by Paizo Publishing, LLC.
"Pathfinder™" is a trademark of Paizo Publishing, LLC.
For more information about the Pathfinder™ Roleplaying Game, please visit http://paizo.com/pathfinderrpg.
Since the Pathfinder™ character sheets available from Paizo as PDF are not editable with Adobe Acrobat Reader, I created some by myself to use with OpenOffice writer (I really recommend OpenOffice to everybody, it's a real good office suite, it's cross-platform and, best of all, it's completely free. This means you can even install it beside Microsoft Office without problems or any additional costs).
If you want to see an example, have a look at one of my former Pathfinder™ characters, Hornswell Hike
Since I don't like Excel type sheets, I didn't use oocalc but oowriter. This has a small disadvantage: I can't calculate everything as I could do in oocalc, but I like oowriter's ability to control the layout more (I'm not the expert for OOo, maybe some OOo guru could do the same with oocalc, I don't know). Nevertheless, some values are calculated automatically (more about that later).
If you are in a rush, simply download the Pathfinder™ character sheet for OpenOffice Writer (you may have to use right click and "save as...", since your browser may recognize this file as a ZIP file and could try to open it with an archive browser - which would kind of correct btw., because OOo files actually are nothing else than zipped XML files).
If you want to fill out the sheet completely by hand (without any automatic calculations) or as a base for your own custom character sheets, you should download this one instead.
Truetype Fonts Used
Since I used some non-standard fonts, you will need to get these as well. First of all, you will need the truetype font call "Alois". I got this font in a very cheap font collection about 13 years ago, and it looks like the company which sold it (UK company "GST", it was bundled with a program called "Designworks" for Windows) went out of business (and the foundry "URW" which created it, doesn't even list it on their own webpage!), that's why I think it might be OK to make it available here. I think this font matches the one used by Paizo the most:
Remark: If you are the copyright holder of this font, please inform me and I'll delete the font immediately from this website!
The other two fonts are open source truetype fonts, available at sourceforge resp. at gnome.org: DejaVu and Bitstream Vera. That's all you will need (see your systems documentation how to add new truetype fonts to your system. Normally it's just something like "copy the fonts to directory xyz").
Back to the character sheets themselves, there are some small specials and glitches (which may cause troubles):
paper size is A4 - but the content is small enough to fit on letter paper as well
automatic calculation is used for: Initiative, AC, Touch AC, saving throws, CMB, total bonus for skills, totals in armor table and weight in gear table. You will have to fill all the fields by yourself, which means that e.g. no ability modifiers are copied from the ability table right now (but you don't have to calculate the sums by yourself - at least a small advantage =).
if your text is too long, a new line will be added in the corresponding cell. This will disturb the layout of the sheet. Try to use abbreviations (or try to use a smaller font size - which again may change the layout, sorry for that)
if you've added/changed something and the second page content suddenly spreads out over some additional pages, try to add some blank lines at the border box's bottom(!) on the first page (use CTRL-F10 to show non-printing characters, you'll see what I mean).
I don't calculate "Flat-Footed" AC, because there are some Feats which change this one (e.g. Uncanny Dodge).
For the skills, you only have to edit the ability modifiers once when they first occure, the other fields will be updated automatically (if not, simply press F9). To ease this, I left the "master" fields blank, so they're easier to find.
If you want to change any font sizes/columns sizes/whatever, always keep in mind that this is a very complex table structure, embedded in a multi-columns document. Feel free to try, but please don't ask me for further advice - as I said, I'm not an OOo guru, just a somewhat experienced oowriter user.
Never, ever use Return in any cell (unless you really know what you're doing).
There are some fields which have multi-line content (e.g. Wounds/Current HP or the weapon's description. Please make sure that you don't add additional returns in there (again, it's easier if you use CTRL-F10 to show the non-printing characters).
I for myself always export the character sheet to PDF and use this one for printing/uploading to a wiki page and so on, because you really see how it will look like when printed. But that's only my personal preference, your mileage may vary.
all cells which shouldn't be changed have been protected. If you want to change them, you'll have to disable the cell protection first (with right click->cell->remove protection or something like this - I'm using the german version)
Since it looks like I'm not allowed to use the official Pathfinder™ Logo, I replaced it with a very simple graphic. If you want to change this (for your private use only!), simply find the Pathfinder™ Logo on Paizo's home page, save the jpg, delete the self-made-logo, use insert->image->from file (or something similar, I only have the german version, sorry). Double click the inserted image, remove any borders and use "as char" as an anchor. That's it. Remember that - at least right now - you are not allowed to distribute any character sheets which have been changed to display the original Pathfinder™ Logo from Paizo!
