Welcome to the Official Pathfinder Second Edition Sheet by Roll20.

Contents

The Basics

The Roll20 team is proud to bring you this Roll20 official Pathfinder 2E character sheet. Most sheet questions can be answered by the friendly folk of the Character Sheet Forum. For questions, comments, or concerns with the Pathfinder 2E sheet you can also contact team@roll20.net.

Adding the Character Sheet to a Game

The Sheet Selection Menu
An official or community contributed character sheet can be added to any game when you first create it. On the Game Creation screen, underneath the large blue “I’m Ready, Create Game!” button, is the “Optional: Choose a Character Sheet” section. Located here is a drop down menu that lists all the character sheets built either by Roll20 officially or created by the community. These sheets are sorted under their respective RPG Systems in alphanumerical order. Once selected, a preview of the character sheet will load upon the creation page for you to review as well as showcase relevant information about the sheet, such as the sheet’s creator and its key features.


The Pathfinder Second Edition Official Sheet can be found under either: Sheets by Roll20 → Pathfinder by Roll20 OR Pathfinder → Pathfinder Second Edition by Roll20.

Sheet Features

General

Auto Calculations

Many parts of the sheet use auto calculations to fill in derived attributes, with the expectation that you're using the rules as printed in the Pathfinder 2E Rulebooks.

  • No class or race information is currently predefined. This allows for any choice of published or custom classes and races.
  • As a general rule, numbers inside circles are auto calculated by the sheet(except coins). These are read-only fields.

Options

button for GM Whisper

The sheet has a few customization options, of which most can be found under the Options tab.

  • Whisper to GM By turning this option on, all you rolls are only sent to the GM.


Options Tab

  • Bonus to roll When checked, always ask for bonuses when rolling anything using a d20 (abilities, skills, saving throws, attacks etc.) Flat numbers (e.g. 3) works, but also whole dice (e.g. 1d4) are acceptable inputs.
  • Bonus to damage When checked, always ask for bonuses to any damage roll, and applies it as a flat bonus. Flat numbers (e.g. 3) works, but also whole dice (e.g. 1d4) are acceptable inputs.
  • # damage dice When checked, always displays a popup when rolling damage from Melee/Ranged Strikes, showing the current number of damage dice the roll have, so it can more easily be changed on the fly.
  • Show notes in rolls When checked, always shows the notes section for the made roll (e.g attributes, skills, attacks, spells). Roll buttons that outputs only text and doesnt contain any dice rolls always outputs their notes section (e.g. Resitances, Senses, Languages, Actions & Activites, Feats, items from inventory)

Roll Buttons and Roll Templates

Rollable stats and skills buttons highlight in lighter blue on hover.
Most of the stats and skills in the game can be rolled by clicking their name(Blue box with white border). When hovering over a button, it becomes slightly lighter in color and displays a round Cog icon in one of the corners, which will expand to show the editable info fields for the button/stat.

All roll buttons except(Resistances, Immunities, Senses & Languages) can be dragged directly from the sheet to your Macro Quick Bar, enabled from the Collection Tab of the Sidebar of the VTT. Do note that buttons from repeating sections get created with long names so ýou will likely want to rename them.

Example of the Roll template in use.

Generally speaking, all fields don't have to be filled for roll buttons to work. The Rollremplate section for input fields left empty doesn't show up in the rolls. For example, if you don't fill in "Effects" for a weapon, the section won't show in the roll template.

As the Critical Hit/Critical Miss uses the contextual "10 over/under the target" rule, all damage rolls automatically also rolls the damage for critical hits to speed up play. D20 dice rolls of 1 is highlighted in red and roll results of 20 are highlighted in green for clarity.

For PCs

Creating a new PC character will open the sheet on the Character tab by default. Information in the Character tab are the most central for playing.

Top info block

The main descriptive info fields for your character. Only Character Name and Level are critical for the sheet to function.

Character (main page)

The Character page contains most of the central things of the character sheet.

Abilities

How to edit an ability score.

All abilities have "10" as their default value.

To edit an ability score, click on the "Cog" icon appearing in the upper left corner of the ability when you bring your mouse to the Ability section.

The Score Base is your character's base abilty score, which includes all changes that comes from ancestry, class etc. when you create your character, or permanent ability boosts you gain from your class at higher levels.

The Mod Temp is a field for any temporary boost or reduction to your ability modifier, which will be accounted for in all rolls using the ability in question, as well as modifying the displayed ability modifier on the left side of the button.

The Score Temp is a field for any temporary boost or reduction to your ability score modifier, which will be accounted for in all rolls using the ability in question, as well as modifying the displayed ability score on the right side of the button.

The Notes field is great for containing info related to you ability score and modifiers, such as the source of the temporary changes to your ability and the duration. Notes section is only displayed in the roll templates if the "Show notes in roll" is checked from the Options tab.

Class DC

To edit your class DC, click on the "Cog" icon appearing in the upper left corner of the section when you bring your mouse to the Class DC section.

The Class DC takes into account your level, and the selections you make in the section. Usually it gets a boost from an ability score, but you can also select "custom" from the dropdown to use your own numbers. The "item" and "temp" fields can be used for other temporary modifiers to your Class DC.

Melee Strikes

The Melee Strikes-section is a repeating section where you can add your melee weapons and strikes

  • The top button displaying the strikes's name, rolls both the attack as well as damage and critical damage.
  • The button under Atk displays your attacks modifier & any weapons traits, and rolls only the attack roll
  • The button under Damage displays your weapon damage & type, as well as any weapon Effects. It rolls only the damage & critical roll damage.
  • Note: The "critical damage" roll is not using the same roll result as the "damage" roll, but instead rolls it's own results.

When clicked, the downward pointing triangle expands/collapses the note section for your strike, if you have anything written there.

If you you strike more than once in a turn and need to apply Multiple Attack Penalty (MAP), you can either select to edit the weapon and add the MAP in the temp field, or you can turn on the Bonus To Roll-option from the Options tab so the sheet ask you a modifier each time to roll.

Armor and Shield don't have a field to track their bulk on the Character tab, so need to be added on inventory page as an item if bulk tracking is important for you.

If your character wears armor that has armor penalty, it needs to manually be added to the corresponding field for each skill with the Armor field, as it's not automatically calculated.

Spells

Spell options

NPC

NPC isn't ready yet, but GMs can start statting out some NPC stats using this conversion guide.

Advanced Use & Tips

Directly Referencing Attributes

hovering over a number shows the attribute name

For macro purpose, the various stats can be referenced by their name, such as @{strength} while the attributes modifier can be referenced by adding the modifier suffix, @{strength_modifier}. Skill modifiers can be refered to by their name, such as @{arcana}.

As a general rule, hovering the stat should show the technical attribute name in the tooltip.

For repeating section attributes, the tooltip gives the full name of the attribute, including a “$id” that has to be replaced by the number of the item in the repeating section, starting at 0.


Dynamic Reference to Rolls

A useful way for GMs and Players to reference their character’s abilities is by dynamically setting up a handful of macros that can be used on a token linked to a character, rather than having to roll directly from the sheet.

Every roll on the sheet, either PC or NPC, can be referenced by %{name of the character|name of the roll}, or %{selected|name of the roll} with a token selected.

The following is a partial list of available rolls, and the aim is for NPCs to share as many rolls as possible with the PCs.

PC Rolls

Initiative roll: %{selected|INITIATIVE}
Percieve roll: %{selected|PERCEPTION}

Strength roll: %{selected|STR}
Dexterity roll: %{selected|DEX}
Constitution roll: %{selected|CON}
Intelligence roll: %{selected|INT}
Wisdom roll: %{selected|WIS}
Charisma roll: %{selected|CHA}

Fortitude roll: %{selected|FORT}
Reflex roll: %{selected|REF}
Will roll: %{selected|WILL}

Acrobatics: %{selected|ACROBATICS}
Arcana: %{selected|ARCANA}
Athletics: %{selected|ATHLETICS}
etc.

Roll Templates

The Pathfinder 2E Official Character Sheet also includes a Roll Template that you can use to dress up your own custom macros. The Roll Template provide additional layout and styling options for the display of roll results, such as showing some fields only if they have any info saved (e.g If a Melee Strike doesn't have anything saved in the Effects field, it will left out of the final output of the dice roll).

Options

If you often attack several times a round, you could turn on the Bonus To Roll-option from the Options tab so the sheet ask you a modifier each time you roll. Each time you don't need to modify rolls you can either press Enter or click Ok on the mod query.
