    IS there any chance for the 2nd edition character sheet in PDF file?
    I like the design much more, it’s much clearer and convenient – however, having to use scanned version is a bit of pain.

    With the new edition, we are desperately in need of new material. The ability matrix needs updating, and a new character sheet should be supplied for easy printing. Make it happen guys!

    Hi All,

    Protodimension Magazine #3 has a different URL from what’s linked above. It is:

    (Yeah, I know it’s a zillion years later. People do stumble across old pages, still, like me!)

    If anyone finds this useful, I made a blank character sheet in Google sheets and then redid Character Matrix from above so that players can fill out the character sheets (on separate tabs of this workbook) and it will populate and keep the pools updated on the ability matrix. Helpful for online play where everyone can maintain a digital character sheet using this and the GM can reference it quickly and easily.

    Don’t edit this doc, make yourself a copy. If you need to add in more characters, just copy the format used in the three that are already there.
