Simple/standard sheet doesnt show temporary bonus

Description

For a barbarian I like to print out two copies of the sheet - once in full, and another with the 'rage' bonus applied (and I just print the first sheet).

I'd like to see something on the first page to indicate that the rage template has been applied, to aid in differentiation between this and the normal sheet (and yes, the increased stats should definitely make this clear, however I'm thinking full clarity for the player*, and of the benefit for some other, perhaps less obvious temporary bonuses too)

*Typical player - Oh, am I really still using my raging sheet for all of this, I hadn't noticed... perhaps I shouldn't have been doing so much damage all this time...too late to worry now.

I've seen (on the second page) a section for 'templates' that have been added, something like that could do it, but it would need to be on the front page to work.

Adding the temporary bonus(es) name(s) in brackets after the character name is probably the simplest, and clearest.

Adding it as a 'watermark' (lighter font) diagonally across the stats would be really professional, though far from simple!

Cheers
Dave

PDF will export only the bonuses applies at the time of export. You need to enable the Rage Bonus and then Export if you desire it to be displayed.

Your summary and your description don't Jive - This is a freq to change behavior not an issue with export.

  • Your request to display Temp Bonuses after the Name would not be "efficient" - I've had players (Wizards) with tons of spells on at a time, and list half a page worth of abilities after the name would be far from ideal.

I'll have Chuck look at this, it's a bit beyond my capability currently to alter behavior of how Temp Bonuses are displayed.

Sorry, yes, this is a FREQ for the OS to show which temp bonuses have been applied...
Rage and generally no more than two spell affects is generally the only ones that turn up in our group, perhaps list all the bonus names, but only display the first 'x' characters of the string?
That would at least make it clear that this OS was a bonused one, rather than a standard one, and leave it to the player to keep track...

On a second page (generally not actually printed out for just the bonused versions around here to be honest), a list of all temp bonuses (as per the 'templates applied' could be handy for those who need distinct bonused variants?

Temp Bonuses display as part of other work.
