Shadowrun sheet sources

sheetsAlthough work on Wordman’s character sheets for Shadowrun Second and Third Edition halted at the turn of the millennium and the sheets were officially discontinued three years ago, requests for changes to the sheets have continued to trickle in. At the time of their discontinuation, the intent had been to release the sources used to create the sheets to the public, so that such changes might be made by those who wanted them. By then, however, the ability to read the format in which the files were encoded (Mac QuarkXPress 2.x) and translate it into something more modern had been lost to DivNull Productions.

Today, however, after using a couple of different operating systems, three different computers (with manufacturing dates spanning over 15 years), four different disk drive technologies, and some slightly questionable ethics, DivNull is pleased to announce the availability of the sources to these character sheets in Adobe InDesign CS3 format.

DivNull would like to release the sheets under a non-commercial Creative Commons license; however, we do not have any rights to the underlying Shadowrun property, so probably do not have the right to issue such a license. Instead, a readme file in the archive containing the sources details the usage: credit us, respect the creators of Shadowrun as they have asked, don’t charge anyone, don’t pretend that your changes are our originals.

Otherwise, go nuts.

Shadowrun sheets discontinued

sheetsWith the release of the fourth edition of Shadowrun, a number of requests have come in for an update to the character sheets that DivNull produced for this game. After some thought, DivNull has decided not to update the sheets for this edition. For all intents and purpose, the currently released version of these sheets will be the last produced from DivNull. Should there be any who which to duplicate the style of these sheets for current and future editions of Shadowrun, please feel free to do so.

The date of the original (PostScript!) sheets have been lost to history, but it has been easily ten years. Thanks to all of those who have supported the sheets over the years.
