Fate Core Character Sheet is another project that I have made. It is basically just a form-based version of the actual character sheet.

Inspiration

I enjoy playing games on Tabletop Simulator every once in a while. So much so that I made this mod so that you can play Fate games on it. The mod is set up so that your character sheet is a series of note cards. This works fine, but it is a little clunky. Tabletop Simulator does have tablets though.

So if the character sheet is available and editable online, each player could have their own tablet and keep their character sheet on it.And that is why I made this project. So that you can easily use a Fate Core character sheet on Tabletop Simulator. That is not it’s only usage though.

Usage

The usage of this program is super simple currently. Basically, you can fill out any of the fields to keep track of things and you can increase or decrease the number of mental and physical stress boxes you have using the plus and minus signs in the section heading.

Future

After creating it, I thought of some really cool uses for this program. The first is to add serialization of the sheets content. This would allow someone to fill it out and then copy a link. Punch that link back into your browser and it brings you right back to where you left off. I am confident that I can do this, but I never have before, so it will be a learning process to implaement.

Another thing that I would like to add is a dice roller. I hope to make the skill levels clickable. When you click them, four fate dice are rolled and the skill level is added to the result and displayed on screen.
