"Adding a Character Sheet" can mean one of two things, both which are described on this page.


Adding a Character Sheet to your Campaign

Main Page: Game Management

Starting a New Game

When starting a new game, you have the option to choose the Character Sheet you want to use from the handy drop-down available on the New Game creation screen. The Character sheet template can be changed after game creation as well. If you're making a Game that's a copy based on an existing Game, the copy will keep all relevant character sheet information to match the original. Finally, you need to click the (I'm Ready, Create Game) button to save.

For an Existing Game

To change or add a Character Sheet, the Creator of the game should visit the Game Settings page. This page is accessed from the Settings dropdown on the Game Details page. Links to the Game Details pages of games that you belong to can be found on the My Games page.

In the Character Sheet Template section, select a template from the dropdown. Pro subscribers can also choose Custom to enter their own HTML and CSS. Finally, you need to click the (Save Changes) button found at the bottom of the screen.

Adding New Characters In-Game

Main Article: N Journal-tab
The Add button in the Journal Tab

To add a new Character/Character Sheet for a player inside the game, a GM or the Game Creator start by going to the N Journal-tab. There you click on the + Add button and select Character from the dropdown menu. There sheets are by default hidden from the players, so you need to make them visible to players, and give them editing permissions when needed. See the Character Sheet page for more.

You can also add a character by right-clicking an existing folder in the Journal tab and selecting Add Character from the Folder Options menu. Adding new Characters or Handouts using the right-click method places them directly into the right-clicked folder.

Regardless of how you create the Character entry, Roll20 will randomly generate a placeholder for the Character entry's Name.

A Character Entry uses this icon:x as the default thumbnail for itself on the Journal Tab. This thumbnail icon will change if you add your own image to the Character's Portrait.

Assign to player

To assign sheets to players, the GM need to open the character sheet and press the edit button, and in "In player's Journal"-section, add players that should see the character (in the N Journal, but not the full sheet).

The "Can be Edited & Controlled by"-section is separate to give the right persons the rights to edit and see the full character sheet. Assigning char sheets to people works only after they have logged in the first time, but you can set some to "All Players" if they haven't joined yet and want to make it available the moment they join.

Add Character from the Character Vault

Exporting a character from the Character Vault to a game

Main Article: Character Vault

If you have a character/character sheet in your Character Vault, you can from there Export a character sheet to a Game.

If you're a Player, the GM needs to manually assign you the character after you have imported it.

See Character Vault#Exporting Characters for full details when and how to do this.
