D&D 5E – Character Sheet

Here are some ready-to-play first level character sheets: D&D 5E – Quick Play Character Sheets

I really like the new fifth edition rules, but I am not a big fan of the character sheet provided by Wizards of the Coasts in The Basic Rules for Dungeons and Dragons, so I created my own. I found several others that fans have created, but I don’t care for them much either.

This has everything the player needs for combat on the front or first page and everything else on the back or second page. There is a third sheet for spell casters.


I revised the file somewhat. I added lifestyle expenses to the second page and made a few other minor changes. It fills in the current date and calculates ability modifiers. You can click on the date and change it. If you delete the date it fills in with the current date. If you don’t want any date printed, you can delete the date and add a space. I also added a “Clear” button on the first page. It doesn’t print, but be careful with it because it clears all of the information you have added to all three pages. I purposefully did not calculate any skill or saving throw bonuses. Typically, your skill bonuses will be your ability modifier. Put a check mark in the little box next to a skill if you are proficient in that skill and add your proficiency bonus to your ability modifier. I didn’t calculate this, because there are situations where some characters have a larger bonus than this.
Many thanks to George Karas for his help and suggestions. He felt that the spell list needed more room for more lengthy spell descriptions. For simplicity sake, I decided not to do that. My feeling is that if you want a more complete spell description you could copy the descriptions onto cards (that is what I would do) or add another sheet.
The border is wider on the left on page 1 and on the right on page 2. The reason for this is for those of you that want to print your character sheet on two sides of a single sheet of paper. There should be a wide enough border that you can punch holes on the side to put it into a three ring binder.

    I really like this Ronny. I would like to see a section for Advantages/disadvantages though.

    Thanks for this great page. My group will be starting our first 5e game November and our character sheet of choice is yours. Now sharing it with all the pen’n paper fans I know.

      This is great to hear. I am very glad that you like it. Pen’n paper is the way to go. My wife always puts “Magic Mending Tape” over the areas that change a lot. She can write on it with a pencil and it can take a lot of erasing.
      I realize that a lot of people must like these sheets, based on the large number of hits these pages get, but very few people take the time to post a comment. Thank you very much.
      If you are interested, you might check out the auto-fill version and yesterday I added “Quick Play” sheets that are ready-to-play first level characters that you can make changes to before you print them – or simply play them as-is. They all have a “Clear” button to remove all of the information if you want to print a blank sheet.

    Hello, first I would like to say your character sheets are great and I love the auto-fill versions. I am sure you put a lot of time into creating them and I appreciate you making them available to the public for free.
    However, I did run into a problem recently concerning the auto-fill sheets. Some magic items and class abilities (and some game rules) add or subtract modifiers to attack and damage values. Therefore it would be helpful if we were able to manually enter a number into these fields without the auto calculate creating an error. (Or if it is impossible to manually add a number since there are formulas doing calculations, perhaps you could add an “other” field box for both attack and damage that adds to the total). The following are three examples where the auto calculate interferes:
    1) A Ranger who has the Archery Fighting Style cannot add the +2 to attack rolls to create the correct value in the Total Attack Bonus field.
    2) A Ranger with Bracers of Archery cannot add the +2 to damage rolls
    3) Anyone fighting with two weapons who does not have the two-weapon fighting style cannot add their modifier to their damage roll. But auto calculate does not allow for deletion of the modifier.

    So far I have only had this problem for our Ranger so we had to convert to your form fillable character sheet. But I would love to still utilize your auto-fill version so if you can find time to make a revision I sure would appreciate it and I am sure others would as well.

    Thanks for your hard work!

      I realize this was an older comment, but if you download the file again you will get the latest version. I believe I have corrected all of the issues you mentioned in your comment.
