Character Classes Game Aid

I created this game aid that incorporates the attack bonus and saving throw values into each class info for those wishing such a thing for character creation and the like.

Note that I deliberately left out the Cleric vs. Undead table info as those numbers are for the GM's eyes only (and for that reason I've modified a little the Turning the Undead info).

File is ready to download on the Showcase

Just an idea like that, maybe you could switch the fighter and cleric ? That would remove pretty much all the white space in the document.

Thanks for the suggestion, I've tried that way but it ends up creating more white space after the cleric unless I put the classes one after the other sharing the same space, but I prefer to having in the core book order and having each class starting their own page (It allows to print each class individually).

I really like these. Could you add the Turn Undead table too?

I have never added the turning table as from my point of view that info is used by the GM and no t the player, he does not know his turning chances nor the specific HD value of his opponent.

But, as I've seen is a common request, I've uploaded a new file with reworked tables plus the Cleric vs. Undead table.

I always thought that player has to know the chances. I mean otherwise it’s a true leap of faith (which is cool in some way but unfair in the other...) I imagine a 1st lvl Cleric trying to turn a vampire (instead of running) only to be killed in the process.

To me its like letting the combatants know their opponent's AC, its not something I let them know...
Any 1st level character should run when encountering a vampire...

I just reread the turning undead rules in BFRPG and realized the procedure is like you said. But thats not the way it’s explained in B/X (nor BECMI) Interesting, I just skipped this section thinking that I already knew how it worked, but there’s this little change in the rules and now I’m wondering the reason behind this. (Also, there’s no need to put that info in the character sheet either)
