"Go to the sign of Harvel's Axe, a dubious inn on the edge of the Thieves Quarter, in the City of Greyhawk, and look to your own wrist. If you perceive a bracelet and dangling dice, watch for the next throw in the war between Law and Chaos and be prepared to follow the compelling geas." -Signal

C&C:R1 Player Character Reference Sheets

The ever present and forever required character sheet. Castles & Crusades was most likely the first of the games from a bigger company that tried to make a return to what we now take for granted via the OSR movement. Their first release was even a white box with little books inside. This is strictly me throwing my opinion out there but that is what I recall. Back to the item at hand though....

There is not much that needs to be said about character sheets. It does not fail at what it is supposed t do and for a character sheet that is perhaps the best praise it can garner.

From the back cover:

Are you tired of reams of disorganized sheets of paper used to track your character? Can't find that information you are looking for about your character? Is organization a problem? Troll Lord Games is happy to announce the release of the Castles & Crusades Character Reference Sheets. These small but mighty sheets of paper can help even the most experienced player keep track of their character's stats and equipment and is indispensable for novice players.

The Character Reference Sheets Contain six different types double-sided character sheets. Each type derived from an attributes and their associated classes; The Fighter/Ranger (Strength), Wizard/Illusionist (Intelligence), Cleric/Druid (Wisdom), Rogue/Assassin (Dexterity), Barbarian/Monk (Constitution) and Knight/Paladin/Bard (Charisma).

Designed to facilitate attribute check rules system, these sheets include room to record all the character's vital stats from Hit Points, Armor Class, to weapons used and spells known. On the front of each sheet is hand list of your classes' abilities and room to record your racial abilities. Plenty of room is given for what's important to your character and to the game. Record your equipment, keep up with how much ammunition you've used, how much food and water you have left. There is room enough left over to describe your character and give a brief background.
