RPG character sheets
Call of CthulhuThis character sheet is for the fourth edition of Call of Cthulhu. It’s available in three flavours that differ only in the investigator portrait. Each flavour is available in multiple formats. If you just want to print out the sheet then use the PDF format. If you want to edit it then you may find the other formats more useful.
- Blank sheet
- This sheet is completely blank ready to be filled in. It’s available in four formats: as an Acorn RiscOS Draw file (38 kB), a Postscript file (55 kB), an SVG file1 (70 kB) or a PDF file (24 kB). To see what it looks like, there are three preview images available as GIFs which are not suitable for printing. The small GIF is 170x256 and 10 kB, the medium GIF is 339x512 and 27 kB, and the large GIF is 678x1024 and 72 kB.
- Sheet with picture 1
- This is the same as the blank sheet, but the investigator portrait has been filled in with the picture shown above. It’s available in two formats: as an Acorn RiscOS Draw file (55 kB), a Postscript file (86 kB), an SVG file1 (92 kB) or a PDF file (31 kB).
- Sheet with picture 2
- This is the same as the blank sheet, but the investigator portrait has been filled in with the picture shown above. It’s available in three formats: as an Acorn RiscOS Draw file (108 kB), a Postscript file (228 kB) or a PDF file (101 kB) (there’s no SVG). The picture shown was taken from a collection on the web, I’ve lost the information about the artist, sorry. If anyone can point me in the right direction to give them credit, I’d much appreciate it.
To save fighting over the manual trying to remember which dice you have to roll for each investigator statistic, I’ve included them on the sheet. Here’s a close-up of the statistics section.
1 + The fonts used in the SVG files are Palatino and Helvetica (and a little Times). Palatino is used for the logo and the bulk of the text. If you don’t have Palatino (or Palatino Linotype) then the logo will look wrong, but the text should usable if a little out-of-position (notably, headers in the weapons section might overlap). Helvetica (or Arial) is used for the section headings. A missing font there will be less noticeable. Times (or Times New Roman) is used for the attribution. A missing font there should be practically invisible.
If you’re not sure if you’re getting a Palatino font, then have a look at the capital letters C, P and R as they’re distinctive. They should look like this:
