Character sheet designed for use in Roll20 to play the Warhammer 40k Rogue Trader pen & paper RPG by Fantasy Flight Games. The sheet created by Mago

This sheet does NOT require API Scripts.

This sheet is best displayed on the Roll20 supported browsers Chrome and Firefox, at 100% Zoom (no zoom) and inside the Roll20 game screen, however it can be expanded or displayed on an external window with no problems, most elements will stretch-out to fill the screen without breaking or overlapping.

  • Current Revision: #3 (Rev.3) May 2024
  • Latest changes: [1]


General Features

  • RTI Rev.3 Percentile dice macro design, emulates the original boardgame mechanics, you will see a Threshold number that is the characteristic value + modifiers. A d100 roll and the Success or Failure Check
  • Results that Equal to or lower than the Threshold are success, results that are higher than the Threshold are Failures. At the bottom you will see how many Degrees of success or Failure the test scored.
  • Most input fields (Type "Number") now have arrows to add and subtract, arrows only show up when you point at the fields, you can even click/hold the arrows to speed up.
  • Most white text fields can be hidden or displayed by checking the corresponding checkbox, the checkboxes themselves have a tooltip to let you know what they do.
  • Many fields and buttons have tooltips that show important information, for example: in the Talents tab, the advancements section "Total XP Spent", putting the cursor over it will reveal a list that serves as guideline to determine a character's rank. In addition many fields and macros have a ( 🛈 ) icon that contain rule reminders and other tips.

Universal Header

The Universal Header contains Player/Character name, Characteristics (including advancements and Bonus), Fate Points, 2 Quick Skill selectors, GM Rolls and Fatigue.

  • Characteristic numbers are filled in the Starting Field and the Adv. Checkboxes at the bottom add +5 each (Simple, Trained, Advanced, Expert) the number displayed in the big field is a sum of those values, These fields are also buttons that roll characteristic tests.
  • At the right corner of the characteristic number, you will find the Characteristic Bonus field (the grey curved square) you must fill these fields according to the rules you may be using, important macros use those values. (E.g: Str. Bonus for melee weapons)
  • Fate Points have a Pool and Current fields so the players can track FP, also the ( 🛈 ) icon has a tooltip with info on what you can do with Fate Points.
  • Quick Skill Selectors allow you to select up to 2 of your most used skills for quick access, this is intended to reduce the need for Tab switching. You must set up the skill bonuses (basic, trained, other bonuses, etc...) on the Skills Tab first.
    • These Selectors have been rendered obsolete by the Roll20's drag-able macro buttons feature, now any macro button can be clicked and dragged to the bottom of the sheet, to place said macro in the quick macro bar (at the bottom of the screen).
  • GM Rolls This selector/macro will roll in secret, only the player and the GM will be able to see it, if the GM is rolling, only the GM can see it.
  • Fatigue the ( 🛈 ) icon has a tooltip, with info on how fatigue affects the character. Fatigue has a Checkbox that when marked, will add a -10 penalty to all Characteristics (this is a workaround solution to the original rules), this penalty is visible on your characteristic scores above. Fatigue Limit is equal to Toughness Bonus.



The Skills tab contains Basic Skills, Advanced Skills, Skill Groups (including custom) and Profit Factor(PF).

  • All Skills and Skill Groups now have a ( 🛈 ) icon with a tooltip that contains info on how to use said skills and which categories they belong.
  • Basic and Advanced skills are very straight forward, the base value is calculated based on the Characteristic number.
  • Basic skills will roll with half the characteristic value if not "trained" (checkbox) by default.
  • Advanced Skills will always roll 0 unless the "Basic" or "trained" checkbox is checked, to use full characteristic, both basic and trained must be checked. (read the skill rules for clarification.)
  • Skill Groups are now divided into their respective classifications according to the core rules, each with their own repeating fields.
  • At the bottom you can also add Custom Skills not contemplated on the original game rules.
  • The Profit Factor section contains the Acquisition Test Macro, the macro will ask you for the various modifiers for the test.


This tab is dedicated to all combat related info and macros to make combat more fluid, reduce book-keeping and tab switching: Ranged, Melee, Gear and Tools, Armour, Wounds, Critical Hits (and related conditions), Size mod, Movement, Initiative and a Damage Calculator.


  • Ranged and Melee Weapons section contain several macros to facilitate combat, they also include selectors for several common modifiers like Range, Aim and Combat Actions.
  • Macro Buttons in these sections have info tooltips to let the players know what kind of modifiers the macros have, hover over them without clicking to see them.
  • The Checkbox to the right of the Show Special button, hides the weapon's description/special text field.
  • In the Range Weapons section, the Flame macro is intended to be used only for weapons with the Flame Quality since these weapons do not require an attack roll, however in order to work properly the Damage dice field requires special syntax, hover over the button to see examples.

Gears & Tools

  • To properly calculate the characters carry capacity you must select SB + TB total from the selector to the right.
  • The Mod Fields will increase or decrease these values based on multipliers taken from the core rulebook.
  • Carry Mod has no multiplier, any value will increase/decrease the Carry Max Value on a 1 = 1 ratio.
  • Lift Mod Will increase/decrease the value of Lift x2 (e.g. 2x2 = 4)
  • Push Mod Will increase/decrease the value of Push x4 (e.g. 2x4 = 8)

Armour & Defense

  • On top of this section you can see the Initiative macros, Multi-Hit and Damage Calculators
  • Armour Section has the AP field on top, the bottom is an Auto-calc of the AP + TB (from the Universal Header).
  • The Wounds section has several fields to accurately track the total Wounds the Character has.
  • Size Modifier gives visual reference to chance to hit based on combat modifiers, however it also modifies Normal Movement, select different sizes to see the effect below.
  • Normal Movement is based on Agility Bonus, you can see the multipliers as tooltips on each field by putting the mouse cursor over them.
    • A note on Unnatural Agility: Since Unnatural Agility (Bonus) will change movement, it is recommended to use the Custom Movement section instead, also recommended in case the character has Unnatural Speed
  • Base jump and Base leap are based on Strength Bonus, you can see the multipliers as tooltips on each field by putting the mouse cursor over them.
  • The Initiative macro requires a value on the field to the Left (___). Hover over the field to see examples.


This tab contains Talents, Traits, Cybernetics, An experience point tracker, Insanity and Corruption.

  • Talents, Traits and Cybernetics descriptions can be posted in the q Text Chat, by clicking the Show Button.

  • Psychic Phenomena rolls a 1d100 (+10 for every power sustained), remember to add the appropriate modifier if the psyker is Pushing.
  • Perils of the Warp roll and Perils table are split due to difficulties implementing a rule called "Soul-bound" that allows the psyker to roll 3 separate dice to select a more favorable result. You must input the result from the perils roll on the Perils table to the see the effects.
  • Only input base Psy Rating in the Psy Rating field, since the psy powers macros have PR modifiers in the technique fields.

  • The checkbox to the right of the Show Button will hide the description text area, unchecking it will reveal it.

  • The Weapons section now features a checkbox to the left of the Weapon Name Field, checking this will swap the fields for Vehicle Melee Weapons (yes they exist)

  • This tab does not have as much functionality as the main sheet, there are no auto-calc fields here, Only exception is STR mod in NPC melee weapons.
  • Due to limitations in how Repeating fields cannot be placed inside Repeating fields, this tab does not have them since the whole tab is a repeating field.

  • For more complex NPCs / Enemies, We strongly recommend you to create separate characters with their own sheets.
  • You can hide the whole NPC section by checking the checkbox in the upper middle section, uncheck to reveal.
  • NPC do not trigger Righteous Fury as per the rules, thus there is no RF macro in the NPC weapons section.

Custom Macros using the Roll Template

If you want to create your own custom macros using this character sheet's Roll Template use template &{template:custom}

  • The first line uses {{name=}} This is the first line of the macro when displayed on the Chat.
  • These keys will show the line Centered and Bold {{d1=}} {{t1=}} {{p1=}} in descending order.
  • The description field uses {{desc=}} The text here will be centered, it will always be at the bottom, be sure to remove any spaces in between lines for better display.
  • The other lines simply follow {{insert title here = insert value here}} Same as the Roll20's Default Template.
  • The following Key names are in use by the roll template, you should avoid these if you do not want these fields to show up
    • hallu flame d1 t1 p1 psyres psydosdof d100p psytest stun stunloc d100a powerparry parry pdesc dosdof testresult testtarget d100 psydesc psypen psydmg desc name attack hitloc fallhitloc bloodloss fury furydice navmutable perilstable psytable shocktable traumatable maligtable mutable scatter multihit

Useful Attributes for tokens

Here are some suggestions when linking Attributes to token bubbles


  • "Wounds" (character current wounds)
  • "Fate" (character current FP)
  • "fatiguecurrent" (character current fatigue points)
  • "HalfMove, FullMove, ChargeMove, RunMove" (movement statistics)
  • "CustomHalfMove, CustomFullMove, CustomChargeMove, CustomRunMove" (custom movement statistics)
  • "WBS, BSB, SB, TB, AB, IB, PB, WPB, FB" (characteristic bonus)


  • "Hullintegrity" (ships current Hull Integrity)

List is incomplete will continue later.

🛠 (Extras)

This tab only exists as a testbed, however it contains the sheet's Credits and a link to this very article it may receive more features in the future

Known Issues

Old Skill Groups Disappeared

  • No solution for this issue available at this time, players will have to add the skill groups manually again in the new fields.
  • It is possible that some of that information is still preserved in the "Attributes and Abilities" Tab of the character sheet. Check this tab before adding the skills again.

Available Carry Capacity not updating after removing gear

This only happens when you remove gear from the list by deleting the item.

  • Solution: Switching tabs makes the sheet update this number, also checking any checkbox on the combat tab does the trick too.

Roll template in chat not properly displayed

You may notice that the roll template does not seem properly centered/displayed when presented on the chat, this visual bug is caused by the "Enable Chat Avatars" option in the "My settings" tab of the game options.

  • Solution: disable this option for proper display.
  • For an even better display, you can reduce the size of the chat, by dragging it to the right

Planned Future Update

Rev 4:

  • Add and Modify button text replaced by icons
  • Complete redesign using CSS grid structure
  • minor bug fixes


  • Created By Mago
    • Original sheet layout based on Dark Heresy 2nd Edition Character Sheet created by Daniel D., Michael R and Samuel L.
