Character Sheet

Here is a text-based character-sheet for Traveller, 5th-Edition version. There is at present only an interactive character sheet for the Mongoose Traveller version. Someone skilled in HTML and CSS may design one for T5.

Default rolls and characteristics are for Humans; replace these rolls and characteristics for non-human Sophonts or Robots.

Simply create a new Character handout called Blank Character Sheet, insert this text in the Bio & Info tab, and save. Make duplicates entitled with the name of each player and assign Edit control to that player. They will be able to edit everything in the sheet except the Character Sheet title. Once they decide on a character name, the GM can edit the sheet title for them.

It is recommended to make a duplicate and save as "Copy of Blank Character Sheet" in your game's Archive.

(X means no Skill, 0 means Default Skill (can roll but with This is Hard! rule). Skills in brackets next to main Skill are Knowledges; you must add the first 2 levels awarded within these Knowledges before being allowed to add 3rd and subsequent award of the Skill to the entire Skill. E.g. first two awards of Driver could be applied to Tracked-1 and Wheeled-1, or Wheeled-2 by itself, then on further awards the main Driver skill can go up in level (improving the roll for all Knowledges). Skill and Knowledge levels are cumulative on the rolls but you will always be slightly better in certain Knowledges than in the main Skill.)

Dice Rolls

Here are some dice-roll macros for Traveller 5:

To roll a number of D6 (if you don't specify any number it defaults to 2d6).

/roll ?{Number of D6?|2}d6

To roll the Flux dice (d6-d6) used in certain tables in Traveller 5.

/roll 1d6-1d6 Flux Roll

Set Visible To as "All Players".


There are a number of useful utilities on external sites for Traveller 5th-Edition, made by users Thalassogen and Eaglestone.

The following site (Thalassogen) includes SectorMaker which generates a spreadsheet with data for an entire sector at a time (averaging about 600 star-systems if set at average galactic density, with one or more stars and an average 10 planets each, with the extended T5 Universal World Profile statistics and orbit tables for all stars and planets). Adobe files (.pdf) with a sector map and 16 subsector maps can be generated as well, with tables included. The site-owner added an essay about how to customize and edit the spreadsheet for the Sector. You can reload an edited Sector onto this utility and get an interactive map with information popping up if you roll over hexes or touch a system name in the table.

(Site down, was )

The following site includes a very useful Task Roller tailored to the Combat rules of T5. Probabilities are mainly decided by the number of dice rolled. The greater the number of dice, the greater the difficulty. The number of dice rolled is tied to the Range of the attack. Other factors like Attack type (Snapfire, Auto-fire, regular) are also figured in.
