Is there an interactive web-based character sheet for Dungeons & Dragons 4E like there is for Gamma World? I'm not looking for a character builder.

The only one I am aware of is the Character Builder. Though you do have to be a Dungeons and Dragons Insider Subscriber to use it.

It's browser-based and runs in Microsoft Silverlight (it doesn't work in Linux with Moonlight. Sigh).

On a side note, if you do use the Character Builder, you can upload that info to and use it to dynamically keep track of your character.

I wouldn't call the CB an interactive character sheet. It's a perfectly good sheet creator but once you're done it's not interactive at all. iplay4e on the other hand is a great answer, and much more than a side note! – dpatchery May 20 '11 at 18:23
To be fair, the Gamma World character sheet in the OP's question isn't a dynamic sheet either, you can't keep track of hit points, check any of the "Second Wind" and "Death Saving Throw" boxes, etc. – Cthos May 20 '11 at 18:35
if you open your character sheet in the character builder (wizard's) you can keep track of your hit points, action points, even modify your stats (it generally prompts for a description). – DForck42 May 23 '11 at 21:15

Myth Weavers has a decent browser based 4e sheet that does an OK job of keeping track of simple stuff.

I'm sticking this in here because it was part of a redundant question I asked about this subject, but I'm definitely looking for more free options.

One of my players uses MythWeavers for his character sheet, and I hate it. It's acceptable online, but the printed version cuts out power descriptions and lacks detail. Every one of my other players has a better sheet, even the guy who just uses the default Wizards paper printout and a pen. – DCShannon Mar 18 '15 at 21:46

4th Ed Excel Character Sheet might do what you want.

While I prefer the Character Builder that comes with a DDI subscription to this, the Excel sheet was an excellent free option before I bought my subscription. – Brian S Dec 26 '13 at 14:32

Lone Wolf Development's Hero Lab is the best commercial character builder, and it supports 4e as well as 3.5e. Pathfinder, Savage Worlds, and many other game systems. I've used it a while and specifically baked it off against PCGen and RPGXplorer and it beats the pants off both.

Then besides a builder, it has full functionality to track in-play stuff, apply conditions, make rolls, etc.

And it seems to run under Wine! Woo! +1. – Cthos May 21 '11 at 1:25


The free and venerable PCGen supports 4E - it's meant to be both used to generate character sheets and to be used "live".

I downloaded this the other day, and I can't get it to support 4E. Suggestions? – Pureferret Dec 30 '11 at 15:14
The home page says it supports 4E. But this page explains why they can't distribute the content. – gomad Dec 31 '11 at 19:12

If you are running Windows and can get your hands on the old D&D offline character builder the character sheet with that one is interactive. However, they stopped updating it before the essentials line came out. Some (read me) prefer the format of that character sheet to the one you can print online.

I had the same question! I'm working on an (early) prototype here.

It's designed for phone and tablets and saves everything directly on your browser. There's a cloud sync feature, but you'll have to send me your Facebook profile to get access. That feature is handy for character entry, since you can type/paste everything on your PC, then sync and have it available on your phone.

I'm actively working on it on weekends, so shoot me an email if you want to help test or even contribute code. I'm focusing on UI and making it table-friendly right now. 4e is on it's way out, so I'm hoping to take a second pass at it to generalize and make it work for other games. I'm also a D&D newbie so I need help from more seasoned players to make it work.
