  • Alternate character sheet - putting persona first

    While playing around with character generation, I noticed that existing BR character sheets look pretty much like those in every other RPG. The few mechanics that qualify BR as romantic fantasy are consigned to the back page. If I were going to introduce BR to new players, I might want those mechanics highlighted. So I made an alternate character sheet, just to see what it might look like if I flipped the priorities and put persona and relationships front and center. The front sheet is color-coded blue so as a GM I could, at a glance, see which side players were using most often. That might help me see if I was emphasizing those aspects of the game, or running it the way I have traditionally run RPG's.

    The sheet is not form-fillable. I don't know how to do that. The third page is only needed for characters with arcana. Feel free to play around with it or comment on the concept.

    I REALLY like this idea! Putting the character first and not their stats is an excellent idea, especially for a world like this one!

    I am a little worried about Focuses, Class Powers, Talents, and Specializations all sharing the same space, especially as characters grow in level and have quite a few of all of those.
