FYI, EN World has consolidated all of their D&D (and Pathfinder) forums together into one forum, so they no longer have an exclusive D&D Next forum.

Thanks Crazy Monkey. I've pulled the dead link. I wonder why they merged their forums. :? (Maybe they recruited GamerZero onto their moderator team! :P )

One of my biggest 5e complaints for the PHB is how the spell list is organized. I find this one much better...

Why do I get a 404 error for every character sheet link?

Thanks. BTW, I saw one of the other players at the Adventures League game with an alternate PDF-fill-able character sheet on his tablet. He said it was from Reddit, anyone know if there is a section for alternate character sheets on there, and where? (I'm a bit of a Luddite when it comes to places like Reddit.)

Thanks Birchbeer. Yes, I found the modified character sheet I was looking for. Now, just need to find a way to save the filled out PDFs. (I currently only have Adobe Reader, nothing else. Plus, have no idea how I could use either on my tablet...yeah, I'm a bit of a Luddite these days. :( )

After filling it out go to the File tab and click on Save As, I think that should do it.

Just tried, and this is what I got:

Save a Blank Copy of this Form
Data typed into this form will not be saved. Adobe Reader can only save a blank copy of this form.

Then it gives me an option to print it out.

Ah well, I tried.

Do you have the option to "print to pdf"?

Actually, while talking with one of my fellow players tonight, he suggested I upgrade to Adobe Reader 11 - I was only using 10 up til now.

I can now save a filled PDF file...hopefully Reader 11 doesn't shut me out after 30 days.

I feel the need to point people at Reddit's /r/UnearthedArcana subreddit. Anyone can post there, and some of the stuff is very unbalanced, but it's a good clearinghouse for material. It also doesn't seem to have the toxic atmosphere other forums of the site experience.
