Old-School Essentials Character Sheet on Roll20

Gavin Norman oldschoolessentials

Good news for Roll20 users: there is now an official Old-School Essentials character sheet for Roll20 games! The official sheet (which is based on an older, unofficial one) is being actively developed and has gained a lot of new features recently.

How to Use The Official Sheet?

  1. Log in to Roll20.
  2. Start a new game or click on an existing game.
  3. Go to Settings / Game Settings.
  4. Under Character Sheet Template, select "Old School Essentials by Necrotic Gnome".

(The sheet simply named "Old School Essentials" is the older, unofficial sheet, which has a lot less features.)

What Features Does it Have?

  • Supports all Old-School Essentials Classic Fantasy and Advanced Fantasy character classes.
  • Automatically calculates saving throws, Hit Dice, and attack probabilities for supported classes.
  • Descending or ascending AC. (This can be switched at any time in the settings.)
  • Click to roll saving throws, attacks, ability checks, etc.
  • Attack rolls indicate natural 1s and 20s.

Thanks

To Wes Baker and Frederick Münch for their great work on this super useful online resource!

    >Some of the boxes/modifiers aren’t completelty clear as to how they interact or should be utilized… can you maybe make a pictogram with arrows pointing to each box explaining how to use it and how it effects the rolls and other boxes? For example… under Init is a Dex box… what is this Dex box referring to? For some reason I’m getting an extra +2 on top of my normal +2 to my initiative rolls, I haven’t quite figured out how I should interact with these boxes. Thanks!

    The best thing to do is to contact the developers with suggestions like these (see email / links in the post above).

    >Very cool! This works and looks much better than the current roll20 b/x sheet.

    Great!

    >Any chance of adding modules like Winter’s Daughter or A Hole in the Oak to purchase on roll20? Or an OSE monster manual perhaps?

    No plans for anything like that currently.
