Blue Rose Character Utility
This is an online script which creates a formatted character
sheet. It automatically defines skill values: adding in the
appropriate Ability score to the rank. However, it does no other
- Point your browser to the Character Editor
and fill in as many of the fields as you like. It does very
little rules checking currently -- the only calculation the
script does is fill in skill bonuses. It adds the listed
modifier (from race, feats, or whatever), your skill rank
based on level, and the appropriate ability score.
- Click on "Submit" at the bottom of the editor, which will
bring up a formatted character sheet of the character
suitable for printing. You can preview what the sheet
will look like by viewing the blank sheet below.

- You may save this display by simply hitting "Save" on your
browser and saving the page as a plain HTML. In addition to
the display information, that page has a hidden form with
all the formatted character data which can be re-submitted
for later editing.
- To further edit the character, bring up the page either
directly or from the saved copy. Click on the "Blue Rose"
logo to go back to the editor, where all the saved values
will be shown.
- For the future, I'd like to add additional templates for
displaying the character sheet -- such as the format of
DarkTouch's Blue Rose Character sheets.
- The character sheet can be used offline only to a limited
degree. You can simply save the display sheet as HTML, then
edit the HTML directly using a text editor such as Notepad
or TextEdit. However, you must edit the display values and
the saved data separately.
- For those with some programming knowledge, I provide the
complete source code as a zip file.
These are Perl CGI scripts and a corresponding Perl module.
