  4. *claps in distance*
  5. I use a similar sheet whenever I truly enjoy one of my characters... or when I'm bored and have nothing to do, aha!

    Great work. I'll definitely try using this sometime.
  6. Woop Woop have been looking for a character sheet for a long time I'm excited to use this!
  7. Needs a neutral or hermaphrodite option for gender, my only complaint.

    Good work.

    Edit: I also note the lack of weight/mass entry for physical characteristics.
