(Aid) The More Better Indispensable Character Formfolio $5.95 $3.99
Publisher: Creative Mountain Games

Character sheets come a dime a dozen. Heck, any decent google search can produce 6 to 12 decent ones, and by decent I mean they will let you put the basic information. But, if you really care about your character, you don?t want the Volkswagen Beetle of Character Sheets, you want the blinged out Navigator with the extra base speakers.

That is what Creative Mountain Games wants from their new product, The More Better Indispensable Character Formfolio.

Let it be known. You are not getting a measly 1 page character sheet for your purchase price. You are getting a big ?ole 17 page journal to detail every little tidbit of your character. You can either print this out, which would be a waste, or type it directly on to the screen. This is very handy for the new laptop rpgers. All of your basic information is covered, though there is no space on the primary stat sheet for additional variation options, something I would like to see in a different version. However, that is just a small omission. The designers seemed to have thought of everything else. I especially like that if they did not think of something, there are 3 or 4 blank places in most of the spots to add your own. After the base sheet, there is a gears and more page followed by a series of spell sheets and summoned monster pages. Again all expandable pages that can include content from other stuff.

My only gripe is that you need the latest copy of Microsoft Acrobat to edit and save the pdf. Acrobat runs at $200+. I also think it would have been cool to actually include the summoned monster stats.

For the Player
Demanding Dms like the Iron DM require players to have all of their stuff at their fingertips. This product also makes for a more organized player at the game table. Though the total page count of this is 17 pages, the average player will probably only use 5 or 6 sheets (as most of the sheets are spell lists and monster lists for other classes.

The Iron Word
This is a luxury character sheet for anyone whom has Microsoft Acrobat and five bucks to spend on a character sheet. The price seems a tad bit high, but worth it for those whom want to stay super organized.



LIKED: - organized and clean
- spots for everything
- enjoyed the inclusion of a notes section
- certain areas are expandable

DISLIKED: - no innovation. Wished they would have had spots for things outside of the norm
- the price makes this a luxury and not a necessity


QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Satisfied

Some found the Formfolio was not as useful as it could be because they did not have the full version of Adobe Acrobat, and therefore could not save a filled in form. However, it has since been shown me that this Foxit Reader allows precisely that (and is free).

Very nice to be able to adjust your character between games and, also, make up a number of spell lists for various standard occasions, such as traveling in the wilderness, traveling in a dungeon, spending time in town to rest, spending time in town to research, etc.

All clean and easy to read.
