ACKS-Stormbinger- Dark Fantasy in the Young Kingdoms

Made an awesome character sheet, and have worked out the magic system of the Young Kingdoms on the ACKS system. I have to say the ritual spells make everything easier in the cross fertilization of the epic spells unleashed in the novels.
Working on the Melniboneans, Pan Tangians, and Phumites as racial classes. The rest use a human template with a few National/Ethnic tweaks. Demon and Elemental Magic worked out easily with the Player's Companion.

How do I load the PDF of the Character sheet?

I don't think there's a way to upload it to the forum. You should host the pdf somewhere - on a website, dropbox, etc.
Please share your houserules on magic too!

I sent you a PM. I was inspired by the fellow who posted the greco-roman style character sheet. Anyway it is five pages and universal for any character.

Now finishing up the racial classes.

This is fantastic! Great job on the character sheet.

Stormbringer is near-and-dear to my heart. My earliest incarnation of the Auran Empire campaign setting actually ran using Stormbringer rules. Some of the magical mechanics in ACKS were inspired by SB/RQ.

RQ/SB, after which is 1st edition D&D are very dear to my heart. ACKS is what I can't wait to share with my kids.

Warrior Priest, I took the liberty to upload the sheet to my website. It's at www.droomvorm.nl/acks/tools/stormbringer.pdf

Cool variation! What are the two checkmarks above the Law/Chaos symbols on page 3 for? Alignment, or something else?

Exactly... to show affiliation with the lords of Law or Chaos. If one wants to be affiliated with the Balance they ignore all together.

Wow! These are amazing. And like you guys, Stormbringer has always been near and dear to my black heart.

I cannot wait to see your rules tweaks!
