With a handy new OSRsupplement, keep an entire RPG character on a bookmark

With a new supplement for OSR, create and keep characters for tabletop roleplaying games on a single bookmark.

TRPGs that draw inspiration from the earlier titles, such as Dungeons & Dragons, and modernize them the Bookmark Character Sheet can assist players in making and keeping characters in a portable format.

The 2-inch wide and 6.5-inch long bookmark provides players with the ability to write their characters name, their class, and playable species, their moral alignment if they have one and their level.

With that, there is the possibility to take into account other aspects of a player TRPG character, such as their ability scores if they''re playing an OSR version of the fantasy RPG D&D, as well as their stats for saving throws. There are also sections for listing equipment, armour, which will affect a character''s AC rating, as well as their general inventory.

On the other hand, players will be able to include any necessary notes for their characters abilities as well as whatever spells they may have recently prepared. For obvious reasons, it is advisable that players use a pencil to write down information on their Bookmark Character Sheet, so that they may rub-out and rewrite details such as a change in prepared spells.

All of this information will enable players to form a playable character for an OSR tabletop roleplaying game, completely contained in a single bookmark that may be inserted into a core rulebook or a campaign note. The Bookmark Character Sheet allows players to quickly check their characters stats, or use it as an easy-to-find reference for whenever they need to perform something like an ability check.

The Bookmark Character Sheet is a Legend Testament that players may use in its most important detail to detail their characters. OSR TRPGs are known for sometimes being unforgiving on player characters, with the varied ways to die being plentiful and from the epic to the banal. The Legend Testament will enable players to remember their characters after their deaths, without the need to keep their characters sheet. This section will be removed.

Descender, the creator and editor of Fantasy Audio Magazine, has created the Bookmark character sheet, which is an independent publishing company that specialises in providing game masters with music and atmospheric soundscapes to play for their group, including the upcoming Candle III tapezine.

In November, a pledge of $5 (5) will get backers one sheet of Bookmark Character Sheets, with the Kickstarter campaign ending until September 30th.
