Baby’s First Character Sheet


Just for fun, here’s the one-page PostScript character sheet I made for GURPS (3rd edition) back in the Eighties. This is good old-fashioned stone-knives-and-bearskins hand-written PostScript, because that’s just how we rolled in OSU-CIS.

PDF version (5.3KB), if you don’t feel like cutting and pasting.
