Another character sheet
I've just uploaded v1.5 of a sheet I've been working on for a while. It's a two-page PDF, and I've posted the OmniGraffle source file as well. If you're interested, check it out at Unpossible Labs. Since the initial version, I've uploaded a dual-morph sheet and a form-fillable landscape version. These are updated periodically based on user feedback (hint, hint).

Re: Another character sheet
I like it, all function and no filler. One of my only complaints with the official sheet is that it has way too much eye candy, whereas I like a simple design I can fit a lot of info on. Kudos. That said, I'm still looking for a fillable PDF character folio. I have high write-up demands for myself, and I need something that's close to 10 pages for me to write out everything about my characters. I wonder if there's a way to convert the graffle file to InDesign or some Linux equivalent.

Re: Another character sheet
Thanks for the note, Decivre. I grok what you're saying about needing more space, though. People's needs definitely vary. There is an app called graffle2svg for converting .graffle files to SVG format, which might help. Please let me know the results if you give graffle2svg a spin. If it works well, I might provide the file as an SVG as well.

The landscape version I added yesterday moves the muse stats to the front and pulls the morph stats to the back, so the back includes weapons, equipment, notes, and morph, while the front contains everything else.

Re: Another character sheet
The dual-morph version I added today was initially an attempt to squeeze three morphs onto one double-sided character sheet. I grappled with that for a while before realizing it was just a bridge too far. However, I did come up with an approach that seems to work for a dual-morph character. However, in order to make it work I had to change more than a few things around, and beginning Eclipse Phase players might find it difficult to use. Frankly, veteran players may as well. Your feedback is appreciated. Like the other versions, this is up at Unpossible Labs.

Excellent job! Think you could make a french version of it, provided with the official character sheet of the french edition? While I'm pretty much bilingual French-English, my players aren't

Re: Another character sheet
Quincey, I'm glad you like it. If you feel your players could benefit from a French version of the sheet, I'd be happy to help. I'll send you an email so we can coordinate.

Re: Another character sheet
Update to the dual-morph sheet. I found a couple of annoyances in the previous version: * Text above each skill block was too light and blended in with the gray. * I had inexplicably failed to include a box for attribute base values. These issues have been fixed in version 1.4, which is I've made available at Unpossible Labs. As usual, the OmniGraffle source file can also be downloaded. I'm always looking for feedback, so if you use 'em tell me what you like about 'em and tell me what needs improvement.

Lol. Strange, I haven't noticed any changed on the site since Saturday.
