In my campaign, I use a program called The Keep 2.o by NBOS Software to keep track of character sheets and a notes on the campaign. It can also be used to store maps and other documentation for later viewing and printing.
After I could not find an AD&D 1e Character Sheet, I used the character sheet creator (provided with The Keep) to create my own. Roughly based off the original goldenrod character sheet (that was front and back), I expanded it to 3 pages…page 1 is Stats, Saves, and Thieving Skills — Page 2 is Items, HP rolls and Armor/Weapons—Page 3 has languages know and Campaign Notes.
It has been uploaded to the File Download section of this website. The Sheet is not protected, so you can load it into the Designer and make any modifications you may need or want.
Only decent 1e Character Generators I could find were online, and of the three I bookmarked, 2 disappeared in the last year as sites went down. So, I decided to code my own, with the added benefit of brushing up on coding that I hadn’t touched in a decade or more.

Added a few things since thanksgiving, the holiday time-off being good for getting RPG work done. 🙂 All the forms are AD&D 1e.
- 11/27 – Situational Spell Load-Out Form — Add-on for my printable spellbook, use as a way to keep track of individual memorizations based on situations like Dungeons, Cities, Overland, Caverns, etc.
- 12/29 – Carolingia Font — Nice pseudo-medieval/fantasy font that is FAR easier to read than Old English. Good for maps and handouts.
- 12/30 – Party XP – XP Needed – Gold Form — Allows the DM to keep a running total at each XP distribution. Acts as a backup check to player math and gives the party an overview of where every character stands towards next level and wealth.
Chessex 27506 -Ruby with Gold Glitter. Apparently companion set to the Gold with Silver glitter I purchased last Fall.

A little packet of joy landed on my desk this morning….a full five days sooner than USPS estimated it would arrive.
Will have to make a few rolls with them at this weekend’s game, see how they roll and if I want to use them or just add to the collection. Either way, is a good day.
Just received the tracking number for the PolyHero dice I signed up for in Kickstarter over a year ago. Originally due in May, then August, finally late November / early December, they are finally complete and shipping. The final wait begins! Note to PolyHero- NEVER use Chinese manufacturers, or you get year delays.

THIS AMUSES ME GREATLY! Absolutely useless, and if it wasn’t $99 + shipping, I would order the Dwarven one. The creativity of some people never ceases to amaze me. Unfortunately, the kickstarter is a bit pricey for something I’d show off once or twice at a game session and then stop using except as a rolling tower.
I created this after noticing our magic-user was making notes on notebook paper and when I asked what he was doing (since he uses the spell book I created and posted here), he told me he was doing ‘standard load-outs’ for various situations he might run into.

Finally managed to slog my way through the druid spell list and transcribe/format them to my 3×5″ spell cards. They have been uploaded to Google Drive or a download link may be found in the files section. Enjoy!
(and now to work up the willpower to do the Illusionist Spells)
