Swords & Wizardry Fillable PDF PC Sheet (Index Card Sized)

Since our regular game was again canceled tonight, I had some extra time. I've been meaning to make a form fillable PDF version of the Swords & Wizardry character sheet we've been using (originally formatted for 3x5 index cards but I just resize it to 4x6 when printing), so I finally put it together tonight. It's here if you can use it.

Looks great! There may be some problem with the back page, its got two big blocks all filled in with black, or that just may be my sad old home PC.

Thanks Al - what version of Adobe Reader are you using? I've only tested it using Preview on the Mac as well as the Adobe Reader 9 plugin in Safari and the Firefox PDF plugin 1.1.3. I just now re-exported it (using Scribus) using the PDF 1.3 format and put that up, which is supposedly compatible with Acrobat 4 even.

You know, I think I've seen that black block problem in someone else's PDFs before, like maybe the S&W Quickstart Guide PDF.

I love digest and card sized charsheets. Printed a few styles off for my recent B2 12 hour marathon. But apparently all the players a blind geezers cause they all wanted the large 8-1/2 by 11 sheets one of the players brought. :(

Ze bulette, sorry don't know where else to contact ya.

You posted this over at Telecanters:

For that B12 marathon I wanted to print some booklets, I was in a hurry but I couldn't find anywhere in Scribus Or Open office or any other Linux tool. That would let me create booklets easily! Something I thought pretty basic. Can you point me towards specific part of scribus that does that, thanks. njharman@knoggin.com
