Details

  • Letter-size character sheet printed on card stock and folded in thirds like a brochure

  • Can stand up like a DM screen

  • Over-sized character portrait faces other players at the table

  • Your side of the biggie has character info and number lines

  • Choose a set based on source: PHB, UA, or SRD.

Dice are pictured to show scale and are not included.

RPGs are not subtle. When you role play, you need to go big.

Think of a paper mini for your character. Now think bigger. No, bigger. No, seriously, almost big enough to stare down other players eye-to-eye. When you speak in-character, other players will not be able to avoid looking at your biggie.

Now think of it as the best, simplest, most useful character sheet ever. "Sheet" is too weak of a word. This one stands up and kicks ass. The DM has their screen, and now you have your character screen, and it's a biggie.

Materials

How to Make

Paper crafting difficulty: Very easy.

  1. For print-at-home, pay what you want for the templates at DMsGuild.com. You will also gain access to a Google Spreadsheet that you can copy and edit.

  2. Choose the template page for your class. Optionally, customize it with your own character portrait.

  3. Print out two-sided (or run through the printer twice).

  4. Use a dry ballpoint pen to crease and fold on two lines that say "fold". Watch the video below to see how our industrial folding robots do the job.

  5. Attach paperclips to show current stat values.

Game Night Advantages

  • Assert dominance.

  • Supplement or replace your existing paper or on-line character sheet.

  • Shy players can hold the biggie like a puppet or mask while speaking in-character. Bold players can shove it in other players' faces (if that's what their character would do).

  • Slide clips along number lines to track hit points, hit dice, and other character stats. This means much less erasing than regular character sheets.

  • Make NPCs come to life.

  • Meet a (better) mate, because confidence is attractive.

  • Abilities web visualizes how your character is well-rounded or spiky. Compare with your fellow adventures to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the party.

  • Checkboxes for class features are a handy quick reference.

  • Use your biggie to demarcate your personal area of the table. Hide the fact that you are texting your mom. When wielded two-handed, a biggie is a +2 shield against thrown popcorn and skittles. One-handed, it deals force damage to loose dice or cheese puffs, and pushes them up to five feet in any direction.
