Improving a personal Character Sheet

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby DePhantasia on Mon Mar 20, 2017 10:11 pm

So, primarily all I'd like assistance with is making improvements to a character sheet I composed a number of years ago in an attempt to provide a template for super descriptive characters. Here's the Template:

Spoiler: show
-Character Profile-
GENERAL INFORMATION:
Name:
Age:
Race: (What kind of being is your character?)
Orientation: (How is your character sexually orientated?)
Height:
Weight:
Profession: (What does your character do for a living when not out adventuring?)

APPEARANCE: (supply a picture if you wish. Text is priority for this part.)
Hair Color:
Hair Style:
Other: (Describe hair that is not on the characters’ head. I.E. Fur. User Discretion)
Eye Color:
Significant Markings: (Tattoos, Birthmarks, Scars, etc)
Clothing: (Describe all layers from undergarments to outer garments)
Extra: (Articles/ items that are not clothing, but are essential to the character's appearance)
Other: (Describe anything else. (I.E. Eye Shape, etc))


PERSONALITY: (Optional)
Likes:

Dislikes:

Strength:

Weaknesses/ Fears:

Provide a summary of how the character acts towards others. No limit, because personality can be discovered through the art of Role-Playing.

Abilities: (No Limit. User Discretion. Categorize Abilities accordingly.)
Support Abilities- (Abilities that are not used to attack, but are used in battle.)

Battle Abilities- (Any ability that deals lethal damage.)

Misc. Abilities- (Abilities that can be used at anytime, in battle or out. Whether they deal damage or not.)


Weapons: (No limit. User discretion)


Summons: (No limit. User discretion)

-Summon Profile-
Summon Name:
Summon Age: (approximately)
Summon Appearance: (May provide a picture instead of a text summary. If supplying a text summary, use Character Profile Appearance section for reference.)
Summon Personality: (Optional)
Summon Orientation:
Summon Abilities: (Same as Character Profile Abilities. Same Categories.)
Summon Weapons:
Summon History: (Include how the Summon met the character. Or vice versa) [/i]


History: (A short summary of your character's past. No limit to sentences. Only Twins may share a History. User discretion.)


Sample Post:(A exert of your Role-Playing skills. Required. No limit, but cannot use same SP for multiple characters. Only Twins can share an SP. User Discretion.)


(Disclaimer, this was designed originally for use on a Kingdom Hearts roleplay forum, has since adapted to include various tidbits of other Templates from other forums.)

Well, I'd suggest some use of center tags and bolding for the section titles. {} used so it doesn't eat them, heh. Lists where appropriate and such.

Hmm, formatting is always nice, however I'm looking more for things that would describe characters that I might be missing~
