#32 Character Sheet as User Interface

What makes a good character sheet? It’s the first impression any new player will have to a system. This week, Morrus and Peter look to find what features a character sheet needs and how to spot one that will do more harm than good. In the news, we’ve got a new class from one of Dungeons & Dragons 5e’s designers, a streamlined Borg Cube for Star Trek Adventures, more Allies and Adversaries for Fantasy Flight’s Star Wars, and more! Plus a new sketch and Our Favorite Game in All the World!
