AS&SH Character Sheet

Sometimes you just need a good, editable, shareable, character sheet. AS&SH is a game that feels eerily similary to first edition AD&D and it has a good character sheet. But it's not editable or shareable. I did manage to find one that was but it had some short comings. For one, it was done in Excel. While I have nothing personal against Excel, it's not free software so a lot of people simply don't have it. That sheet was also very flashy. I'm not a fan of flashy. I like information density in an easy to use layout. So I set to work making my own character sheet.

My sheet was made with Libre Office so it is in Open Document Format. It can be used with Libre Office, Open Office, or any other spreadsheet software capable of understanding Open Document Format. I also tried to keep the look and feel similar to the original sheet provided with the AS&SH game. Of course, converting such a sheet to a spreadsheet does have limitations so some changes had to be made. This sheet also attempts to auto-calculate and auto-populate as many fields as possible.

This spreadsheet file contains multiple sheets. Of course, the character sheet itself is in there. But there are also these sheets: Spells, Henchmen, Session Log, Example, Tables, and README. The Example sheet is meant to be a guide. If you have any doubts or questions about what's supposed to go into a field, you can look to the example to see. The Tables sheet is used for calculations and lookups made by the character sheet so don't mess with this unless you know exactly what you're doing. The Spells and Henchmen sheets are extra space for tracking spells and henchmen in case you run out of room on the Character Sheet. The Session Log is purely optional. It provides a place for you to add notes about the various game sessions you've played that you may want to keep handy. The README is there to let you know which version of the sheet you're currently using and give you some basic instructions on how to use it. Feel free to remove the extra sheets you don't want or need. But for the love of dice, don't remove the Tables sheet! The Character Sheet wont work without it!

There are two major versions of this document. Version 1.x is for AS&SH 1st Edition. Version 2.x is for AS&SH 2nd Edition.
