So WotC just put out their contest to create a character sheet. Which is nice and all. If you're into that sort of thing, I encourage you to submit one - the world can always use more cool-looking character sheets.
Just one little problem. Section 4 - must be submitted as a 300 dpi jpeg file. Presumably so you can make a FUCKING NON-EDITABLE PDF FILE out of it.
I went straight to the yelling pretty fast there, so I'm going to back up a little and take it slowly.
I must assume that you know of these things called computers, which people have and use now, right? I mean, the whole playtest is digital. Digital sign-in, digital feedback, digital files only.
So why in the NAME OF FUCKING IUZ THE GREAT AND TERRIBLE are you sending me character sheets that I have to print out and write on in PENCIL?
It really isn't that hard to create a fill-able, savable form that I can type my character information out on, save like a grown-up and email to my DM. The community is stepping up and making these things because we need them. They aren't hard to make.
Please - listen carefully to me. I don't print any of the playtest material in hardcopy. I don't want or need character sheet hard copies. I play full-digital. Work with me here.
