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


Adding a Character Sheet to your Campaign


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 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

The Add button in the Journal Tab

To add a new Character/Character Sheet for a player inside the game, you start by going to the Journal tab. There you click on the + Add button and select Character from the dropdown menu.

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.
