Yes, you can have character sheets in Maptool. You can define properties for tokens to inherit. For example, in my BF game, I've defined 'Level', 'Class', 'HitPoints' and many more properties. You can also define which properties are visible.

When you hover your mouse over a token, you can view the visible properties of that token. A little pop-up automatically appears and displays every visible property in whatever order you've arranged.

You can also do more sophisticated stuff, like create an HTML form that will open as a small window, displaying character info. I do that just for the PCs' equipment. For a game like DC Heroes, I do the same for their powers & skills.

Thanks for the shop talk and details. Good to know what's available.

I'd be curious to hear what platforms people have tried basic fantasy on. I've been interested in running a VTT game but I've never done it. I was active in PbP games over on Myth Weavers for many years and it was a lot of fun, but that's a slow medium. It took more than five years to get a Pathfinder group to tenth level.

It is ran on Roll20 and there are two versions of the sheets. I'm sure it is ran on other platforms but I'm not familiar with those platforms.

I know Solomoriah did one of the sheets on roll20, which is kind of him.

Kind? No, self serving. I'm sorry, but I just didn't like the large, comprehensive sheet MedievalMan did. That one's fine for him but way too much for me.

Either way, it is the character sheet that my group uses, so thank you.
