Simple Character Sheet

A while ago, I needed a simple character sheet I could use for quick games and one-shots. I had a few simple criteria:

• Easy to read -- intuitive layout that makes it simple to find information
• Attractive -- I like color, but not too much color, and it needs to look okay in grayscale
• Simple -- not a lot of extra data, and clean layout with lots of white space
• One page -- Landscape format seems to work great for new players
• A place for a picture -- for some reason I like to have an image of the character, even if it's just a close approximation. This is remarkably rare in character sheets these days!
• Generic -- easily applicable to most settings

Unable to find anything that met all these needs, I made my own. The original file was made in OpenOffice, but here is a PDF of it. Sadly, I don't have the tools or knowhow to make it form-fillable. If someone out there knows how, please feel free and send it back to me!

A "blog" to host material I've made for the Savage Worlds roleplaying game. I recommend anyone interested in the game check out the discussion boards to see the kind of community built around this solid game. Also, download the free Test Drive rules to see what this game is all about.
