Hi Guys,

I should have responded to this thread ear­lier. Yes, we’re going to have a char­ac­ter sheet up on here. It will be han­dled as a PDF form. The text labels on the PDF form will be taken from an XML file that lives in the same folder as the PDF form. You can edit this XML file with an ordi­nary text edi­tor and change the labels — thus allow­ing peo­ple to cre­ate (and share!) their own trans­la­tions. You won’t be able to edit the images or the posi­tion­ing of things on the form, but you will be able to change the words.

There is still the poten­tial for prob­lems — a short Eng­lish word being replaced by a long Span­ish word might cause a prob­lem for the lay­out when it is printed. We’ll do our best to pro­vide as much space as pos­si­ble for the text labels in the lay­out.

Regards,
Ian P.

Awe­some Ian
Will the form allow sav­ing? (my lim­ited expe­ri­ence with online PDF forms do not allow sav­ing which is a pain…)

Or do you mean the form will be a down­load instead of live on the site.

Yeah, still a down­load. So you’ll open the PDF and be able to add a char­ac­ter image, enter your num­bers, type in your text, and so on. Then you can save it, print it. But you’ll also be able to edit the XML and change the labels on the form.

Sounds good!

Do you have an idea when you will be able to pub­lish this? As we’re all eager to play ;)

On the topic of Ger­man equiv­a­lents for the Attribute names:

sorry, can’t seem to post them due to spam fil­ter. I wanted to present a ver­sion of them that I made for one of my playtesters last year.

I sug­gested “List”, “Wage­mut”, “Kraft”, “Klugheit”, “Biss” and “Herz” to him. We then changed our minds, how­ever, and ren­dered them as adjec­tives instead:

sorry, can’t seem to post them due to issues with the spam fil­ter it seems :(

another attempt, since the spam fil­ter seems to have been amended:

the adjec­tives we came up with for the Attrib­utes were -

listig
tol­lkühn
kräftig
klug
hart­näckig
her­zlich

maybe they’re of use to some­one out there who also has play­ers who are not pro­fi­cient in Eng­lish but still wanna under­stand what their char­ac­ter sheet says ;)

Thank you for your pro­pos­als, Aubur­ney.

I dis­like those adjec­tives, as I’m used to nouns as attrib­utes… But your first set of words were good in my opin­ion. I would only change “List” to “Schneid” ;)

that’s cool, you can of course choose any you like, and change the rest :)

the adjec­tives idea came up because “cun­ning” and “dar­ing” can be read both as nouns and as adjec­tives in the orig­i­nal lan­guage. And since many nouns we went through in Ger­man felt awk­ward, we decided to give it a shot ren­der­ing them all as adjec­tives.
We got used to ask­ing the player not “wieviel hast du Kraft/​List/​whatever?” but rather “wie kräftig/​listig/​whatever bist du?” pretty quickly, then it was no longer a prob­lem :)

And isn’t “Schneid” more like “Mut”, i.e. courage, i.e. Dar­ing (rather than Cun­ning)?
It is in Aus­trian Ger­man I believe, but may be dif­fer­ently con­noted in vary­ing dialects perhaps?
