The Unabridged Sheets: Another Take on Character/Vehicle/BoA Sheets

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I'm going to cut straight to the chase: I love Edge of the Empire, but I've found the stock character sheets to be... lacking. Sure, they ooze with flavour but they're missing key mechanics like encumbrance and critical hits and frankly wasted a lot of toner. And so I present to you The Unabridged Sheet!

Features:

 

  • Dice pool section! Calculate those dice pools once and never worry about it again with a handy dice pool section.
  • A space for everything! Want critical hits? We have that! Cybernetic upgrades? You got it! You even want to track which mods your droid buddy ruined when he botched his mechanics roll? There's a space for that too!
  • Black and white! No need for colour toner here! Some sparing black toner is all you need.
  • Mechanical layout! Can't remember which brawn you started with and which brawn you got later? Wait, does the brawn you get later help with encumbrance? Don't fret-- it's on the sheet!

It's not just a character sheet, either-- there's a sheet for vehicles, and one for your friendly local base of operations as well.

EDIT HISTORY

1/15/14: Removed Additional Notes from BoO, added more slots for remaining items. Fixed spacing issues in Obligation section. Added Force Powers section to page 1 of the character sheet, moved talents/special abilities to their own page, increased space for obligation and description on final page.

so are you going to do up your own look for the character sheet and vehicle sheet that came with the core book?

Yep, I mocked up character and vehicle sheets as well. They're under the same link that I put in the original post.  :)

A couple of suggestions if I may in regards to the character sheet.

 

1.  Put the Talents all in one place.

2.  Add a Force power section.

 

My two cents

 

Good job!

1.Yeah, I was bummed that I had to split Talents. I wanted to keep Talents on the same page as the dice pools for easy reference while rolling (spending strain to upgrade a pool, getting rid of setback dice, etc). Unfortunately the dice pools, as much as I love them, eat up an enormous amount of space. I ended up putting as many talents as I could on page one and the rest at the back, thinking that the back-pagers could be the more passive Talents that were represented in other stats anyway (Toughened, Grit, etc).

 

2. That's a good point! I had originally considered Force Powers to be more or less equivalent to Talents but I'll reassess that and try to mock something up later today.

Definitely going to use the base of operations sheet, I need more room on that one.

 

This is a random request that may only apply to my campaign, but any chance you could make a version that ditches the destiny point tracking (since I use the tokens on the table and don't always have this sheet in front of me) and add in a section for defenses? Like armor, internal defenses, weaponry, etc. with associated hull trauma and weapons, shielding, etc?

 

My players have a space station that they are upgrading the defenses, I'm sure other people might be doing something similar.

 

If not no worries, it's a solid sheet regardless!

This is going to sound dumb most likely, but since you're using 3 sheets of paper, what are the chances of spreading them out to consume 4 sheets, or rather 2 double-sided sheets with less visual clutter?  

 

 

If you were to go the 4 sheets route with all the Talents on one page, I could see myself using this.  While I love Bren's excel sheet, he has fallen behind and I may just have to go old school!   :P

Okay, I've edited the sheets and updated on the original post.

Done and done.

Hmmm... to be honest, I would suggest printing off another Unabridged Vehicle Sheet and just using that. It already has space for weapons, hull, etc, so it sounds like it fits the bill pretty well. 
 

Cheers, everyone! Let me know if you have more suggestions. I'm a bit busy for the rest of the week proper, but I can probably make some time over the weekend.

Encumbrance base is 7.  Not 5.

Really? I don't have a copy of the CRB on me (our group shares one) so I can't check it against the official source. That being said, http://community.fantasyflightgames.com/index.php?/topic/86930-encumbrance-threshold/ seems to imply that the base is 5 and you add your Brawn to it, as marked on the sheet.For most character's that's 7 after rolling a new character, but for it'd be higher for a wookie and lower for a bothan. It also increases the more you increase your brawn, unlike wound threshold, which is why base and brawn are marked under different boxes.

I'm pretty sure it's 7.  Took me forever to find in the book.  I'll look again.  Cause, you know, I could be wrong.

Wouldn't be the first time.  lol

 

EDIT:

Okay, well, found it.  It's 5.  I have no idea where I remember seeing 7, but I know it was pre-creation.

I take back my correction.

Hi! First post.

 

I wanted to say that armurry came up with a great idea for these sheets. This inspired me to use what he had done, and to spice it up a bit, so to speak. Here is what I came up with

 

This is a B/W 11x17 of the four pages

This is a Color 11x17 of the four pages

Need a 8.5 x 11 format? Done (B/W)

I'm working on the vehicle sheet atm, and will post that in a bit.

Again, thanks to the OP for inspiring with his original content. I Hope I can do it justice spicing it up at bit, graphically speaking.
