Dark Heresy, Rogue Trader and Deathwatch Character Sheet

Character Sheet

The most popular 40K character sheet on the Dark Reign site can now be downloaded from here. It supports all the material from the following books.

Dark Heresy Rogue Trader Deathwatch
  • Core Rulebook + Errata
  • Ascension
  • Inquisitors Handbook
  • Radicals Hanbook
  • Disciples of the dark gods
  • Blood of Martyrs
  • Daemon Hunter
  • The Lathe Worlds
  • The Book of Judgement
  • Core Rulebook + Errata
  • Into the Storm
  • Hostile Acquisitions
  • Core Rulebook + Errata
  • Rites of Battle
  • First Foundings
The sheet supports simple data entry, a choice of 3 printable character sheets (text, simple and advanced) and a shop with all the gear.
It has been tested in Excel 2000, 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013 and contains macros for loading and saving characters and for ammo tracking, however it is designed such that it can be used without enabling macros and still be fully functional as a character generator and XP tracker. The macros have been tested for Mac Excel 2004 and all previously mentioned releases of Excel. They also run correctly in LibreOffice 3.5 but not in OpenOffice 3.4, however the tick boxes are not lined up correctly in LibreOffice and the calculation speed is too slow to be usable in the lastest releases of these products. OpenOffice 3.3 is the best option if you don't have Excel.

The download is a zip file containing a single .xls file. For users of Excel 2007 or later I recommend saving the file as a Macro enabled file (.xlsb) and for Open/Libre Office Users as an ods file. Both are smaller and faster.
Please note that performance in Excel prior to 2007 and the recent open source products is poor due to the complexity of the workbook.

I am grateful to all the fans who have helped enhance the sheet with their feedback and their support with testing or financially using the donate button.
There is an active forum on the Fantasy Flight Site with an RSS feed, mainly used for bug reports and enhancement requests and for keeping up to date with the latest releases.

Talent and Skill lookup table

Using all the rank information in the character sheet I have created a pivot table in Excel 2007 which shows the first rank at which a talent or skill becomes available.
