As I mentioned when I posted my lovingly hand-crafted B/X character sheet, I’ve fallen in love with the landscape 8.5 x 11 inch character sheet format.
On that topic, I’ve uploaded a Labyrinth Lord edition of that same hand-tooled B/X character sheet which you can download here: PDF Download
But I’ve also been working on a variety of other formats for this sheet style, primarily a ‘folder’ style sheet which prints on a landscape letter page, but then folds into four half-sized portrait pages and works as a “character folder”. I’ve been experimenting with what material belongs on what page in this format and along the way ran into another folding format with even more fiddliness – a three-panel pamphlet format.
So, what format is your preference for Dungeons & Dragons or Labyrinth Lord character sheets? Let me know and I’ll try putting one together.

Thank goodness you didn’t make us pick just one! 😛

I would LOVE to see a Pocket-Mod of this, and might make one myself if you are OK with it.
For those not familiar with Pocket-Mod, check it out…
I don’t know why I didn’t think of doing one. The first RPG I wrote was designed to be printed in a series of pocketmods.
I’ll definitely try to build a pocket-mod version. The trick is that I won’t be able to do the final conversion from an 8-page PDF to a pocketmod (can’t get the PDF2Pocketmod program to run on my Linux box) – so I’ll post the 8 page version and ask a reader to convert it for me.

I would be glad to attempt to Pocketmod a sheet designed for such a conversion. What I mean by that is, I have found trying to convert general documents, that most of the text came out too small to read. I don’t think that will be as big an issue with a character sheet though.
Linux… wow, reading your blog, we have similar interests.
