I sent a particularly pleasant email to my PayPal-equipped girlfriend this morning.

If she buys me this, I may have to marry her.

Thanks to the Amazing Kreskin, Ben Morgan, InSpectres now has a rather kick-ass character sheet. See it here:

Also be sure to check out Ben's other custom character sheets on his site:

Oh wow.

Just wow.

What are the chances we can talk Ben into doing a variation on that for every supplement?

Jared,

My girlfriend has played Sorcerer, The Pool, Mage, WYRD, octaNe, SOAP, and one session of Whispering Vault. Last week I asked her, "Of all the games you've played, what's your favorite mechanic?" Her choice? The die mechanic from octaNe.

Why the hell am I posting this to a thread on InSpectres? I must have become disoriented.

Paul

Using that character sheet gives you an automatic Cool Die.

Really good work, Ben!

It is a great sheet, a lovely piece of design.

Nice work.

I have to chime in here along with everyone else. But I'll go one further. I'm usually against character sheets and encourage players to make their own to facilitate their understanding of thier characters (given modern technology it makes sense). But this is an exception. It captures the whole feel of InSpectres so well that, I would not now play without. Awesome job.

I'm trying to think of parallels for the supplements, like Moose mentioned. Nightwatch should be fairly easy, being similar, but more like a portfolio that a newscaster would have or something like that. Sould have pictures. InSpeckers would be a school record or a form for joining the club. But Geek Season...

Wait, it just hit me. For Geek Season what we need is a government liscence for something like: Animated Corpse Destruction and Removal issued by the Bureau of Animated Corpse Elimination. That would be sweet. Now I just have to make the V2 updates so I can send it out and maybe get such a cool character sheet. Nifty!

Paul: Thanks! octaNe and InSpectres both feature my "iSystem" design philosophy. The systems are variations on the same theme...but you knew that 'cuz you've played both, it seems. :)

Jurgen: Ben has ALL the Cool dice for making it.

Mike: I was reading your post and was like, "Well of course it would be a hunting license!" Heh. I can't wait to see Geek Season.

Wow.

That's all I can say. Thanks, guys.

I'm working on a Franchise sheet for the game. That'll be ready within the next day or so, I promise. After that I have to get back to working on Trollbabe artwork. Then, I can work on custom sheets for nearly any variation on Jared's twisted little game you guys can come up with. I like the hunting license one, I'll have to look into it. :)

Oh, and I'm working on a design for an octaNe sheet, too.

InSpectres is now on version 2.01 -- fixed a bunch of typos and added some more detail in places. Same page count, 20KB for stuff.

Those who have bought the PDF have been sent info. on how to get the update.

Gotta love electronic documents!
