A little de-inspiration just in time for NaNoWriMo. In the words of Neil, "You should be ashamed of yourselves."
Since there is no suitable gallery for RPG materials, I made the following suggestion: support.deviantart.com/entries…

Star Wars Saga Character Sheet V2 by archaeobibliologist
Star Wars Saga Character Sheet V2
This is a character sheet for Star Wars Saga Edition RPG. This is version 2 of the character sheet I submitted a while back. You can find the original version of the character sheet here. This character sheet is unlike any other Star Wars saga character sheet I've seen available online. Here are some of the advantages in using my character sheet.

#1 - That's How It Works! - This character sheet is designed to show the relation between abilities and skills. Every skill is sorted by the ability modifier it uses. I find this method of skill sorting much more intuitive and easier to learn.
#2 - Do The Math! - Between the Ability Score and Ability Modifier boxes the equation used to calculate the ability modifier is included. No need to consult the chart in the Core Rulebook anymore. Just do the math!
#3 - Armor Will Defense - In later Star Wars Saga manuals, certain armors could also provide Will Defense. I included a Will Def space in the Armor box (a feature that seems to be missing from every other character sheet I could find online)
#4 - Creativity Blanks - Some character sheets online were designed so that Feats from the Core Rulebook were listed and could be checked off as the player got those feats. But... there are far more feats in Saga roleplaying than exist in just the Core Rulebook. I did not fill in Feat names or descriptions, or Talent names or descriptions, so that the players in your game may take whatever talents they find in whatever rulebook the GM allows them to use.
#5 - Some Action Included - Where appropriate I included the action necessary to switch from one weapon group to the other

Version 2 of the character sheet expands on the awesomeness of Version 1 with several new features!



#1 - Less Erasers Needed - Ever noticed how you were still wasting a ton of pink erasers, updating a number that is consistent throughout a particular ability? Now, the ability modifier numbers, and half-level numbers are larger squares that span multiple rows where that same number can be used. Erase the number once, not multiple times!
#2 - Some Cleanup - I noticed a few typos in the version 1 character sheet shortly after submitting it. I patched up all the typos I remembered... hopefully I got them all.

If you wish to leave a comment/critique:
For those who are not subscribed, please feel free to leave long comments. I know the critique feature is subscription locked, but I don't want to miss your input because of that. I will take critiques from anyone, but it is greatly appreciated if I get critiques from tabletop RPG gamers familiar with the Star Wars Saga game or those who have played before.
Please be verbose on explaining why you like certain features or what can be improved.
If you reference elements on other character sheets that you would like included in my character sheet, please upload the other character sheet to Dropbox or Sta.sh and include the link in the critique so I can see them both side by side while reading your comment or critique.

You may not copy, revise, edit, change, or submit this character sheet anywhere else. If you want others to find the character sheet, give them the fav.me link so they can download it directly from my deviantART gallery.

Adapted from bankuei.wordpress.com/2010/03/…
My version has extra options, and is reworded significantly.

Before playing any tabletop RPG game, the players and GM should sit down and decide the answers to each of these questions. This way, the game will go smoother since everyone can enter the game completely informed.

I created this entire checklist in Inkscape

LLAMA'S ARE ALWAYS RETURNED!! Just give me a llama, and you'll get one back. Llama for llama!


Hi, I'm archaeobibliologist! I am normal person with opinions and feelings, just like everyone else. More specifically, I am an INTJ, with an IQ over 200. As an introvert, I'm very awkward socially, but I do my best to smile at all times, and I have an infectious laugh when amused.

I am addicted to coffee and hot chocolate. I hate weak coffee!

I'm a professional photographer. I shoot engagements, weddings, nature, fashion, models... I am accepting photography commissions. If you would like to retain me, please send me an email at advancedphotosolutions@gmail.com

I'm a book nerd and a computer nerd! I give wannabe nerds an inferiority complex. It's not unusual to find me reading 5-6 books at the same time. And when I'm not reading, I usually doing some computer programming or shell scripting.

I have a blog (generally about computing and other nerd-interests) on Tumblr at Proxy Glider.

I feel I'm better at writing stories than poetry, but sometimes I can't think of the words to say to write longer, so then I write verses. I like vividness of subject in both pictures and literature. I enjoy writing parodies on existing songs and poems.

I'm very eclectic in television and movies. Mostly anime, science fiction, and fantasy, but occasionally I do something from another genre.

I was a MN@ for about a year and a half and I enjoyed every minute of it! Volunteering for deviantART is a wonderful experience and I encourage everyone to try it.

I only take critiques well when it's coming from someone who wants to help me improve. I don't respect criticism from people who give decide that an art critique can also include comments about my parenting, or other similar incendiary subjects. I don't mind getting a negative critique; but when you critique me please do it to help me improve. Don't just bash me...

I am fiercely loyal to all of my friends, and I always stand up for my friends and what I believe in. If someone does or says something that I feel is wrong, I'll respond and, I can be a fierce fighter when I'm needed to be.

I love helping people unreservedly. If you ever need any help, just send me a note and I'll be glad to assist you as far as possible.

I figure I'll never be remembered for doing anything impressively special in life, but I hope to be remembered for all the small things I've helped in.
