Page 2 Take a tab or two out from in front of the Saving Throw line so it is at the same level as Racial Abilities. Leave the Death, Wands, Paralysis, etc. at the level they are so it will make Saving Throw more like a subtitle instead of being lost in the list of saving throws.

Page 3 Put a tab in front of the list items under Basic Abilities and Turn Undead so the subtitles don’t get lost in the list of items. Take a tab from in front of Thief Abilities and Background Abilities so they are more subtitles then members of the list.

Page 4 Maybe suggest using (H) or (B) to tell if the item is at home or in the bank.

Page 5 Equipment records, suggest to user to tag items with (M) for Mount; (W) for Wagon or (P) for personally carried. For the Total Encumbrance have user put (L) or (H) for Light or Heavy load this would also impact the characters movement rate. It could also affect the load and movement for the mount or draft animal pulling the wagon.

On page 6 suggest using an open set of parenthesis ( ) to show which ones are memorized and then putting a check or X in between to show which ones have been used for the day or adventure.

I like the record book since the player can keep track of more items. Print out the second page again so the DM has a copy for his or her records would be another suggestion. The DM doesn’t need the rest of the information, but can ask the player for that information if it is needed.

I made some of the changes suggested in the ODT version for now and will post it once I get the form fillable PDF redone. The idea of the record book is not so that it is used during game play but is more of a record to look back on. Individual pages of it can be printed out any way which is normally the suggested method of keeping track of the characters adventures. The spell book page is just that. It is designed to hold the spells in the characters book. Others have made sheets for keeping track of spells memorized. As far as marking what items are where I will leave that up to the individual as to what system they would like to employ. I would suggest using one of the compact character sheets during game play. I may add one at the back of the book just for that purpose.
