The Essentials Red Box comes with 4 character sheets. The sheets fit on one one-sided piece of paper! It’s roomy enough that almost 1/3 of the sheet is devoted to “character notes”. The last time an official character sheet was presented so tidily was, I think, the 1983 Mentzer Red Box?
It’s definitely a starter character sheet; you couldn’t get a 30th level character on a single page. There’s only 12 lines for “Powers and feats” and 9 for “Equipment and Magic Items”. Granted, a lot of powers and items might be offloaded onto cards, but still, a 30th level character has, what, 18 or 19 feats?
Also, there’s no place explicitly set aside for “Character Sketch or Symbol”? A TRAVESTY!
