System Record Sheets

Postby Simonsays » Wed Jan 29, 2014 9:19 am

I was wondering if anyone had a good fillable System/Main World Record sheet pdf. I like to write everything out for the sub sector my campaign is currently in, so I don't have to decipher the UWPs while running a session. I searched the forum a few times but haven't had any luck. I have a barebones printable sheet I slapped together myself but was hoping there might be something more fleshed out available. If you mention the Player Aids yahoo group, I already know about it and have been waiting quite some time for my application to be accepted.

Please check out StarBase. It's not exactly what you're after, but it can produce form style reports.

It's a Windows app for creating and managing your SF setting, with the ability to produce maps in PDF and PNG format. You can customize any aspect of the world attributes or description. It can display system reports for easy cut-n-paste into a word processor, and can also save them as PDFs so it might do what you need.

It's open source and written in python. A Windows executable is provided, and it is possible to get it running on Linux. No Mac version at this time, I'm afraid.

Ok, thanks. I must says the biggest block to getting my first campaign off the ground is the dearth of any type of record sheets other than the very basic character sheet in the core rule book.

Yeah, I took a closer look at this. Totally not what I'm looking for. All I want is a sheet to expand the UWP into, so I and my players aren't spending half our time deciphering it. So I'd have have a player system sheet (with just the basics) and a referee sheet with the basics plus my notes, adventure hooks, etc.
also, the mapping software in Campaign Cartographer 3 seems far more fleshed out if I ever need something like that.

I can't argue with that, StarBase is primarily intended as a set of world generation and things like editing tools for groups of worlds at a time. It's mainly for creating a setting, so a bit over-engineered or what you're after. CC3 with Astrographer is top-notch stuff, I'm not even trying to compete with that, but it has no features for actually managing world data.

You still have the issue of how to convert the UWP into human readable/editable form in the first place though, which is where I though StarBase might help. If you could use a much simpler utility, to read a copied UWP directly from the clipboard and pop-up a human readable version of it, try this:

I should probably put that in my sig as well.

This is exactly what I was looking for, except a blank sheet, of course.
