I'm an electrical engineering student with a computer science minor at the City College of New York. I do programming work for the Metropolitan Transit Authority, and do a fair amount of hobby-coding for web sites and computer game modifications.

@SevenSidedDie Yeah, the requirement that it be printed out and filled in by hand was added after the answer.

@SevenSidedDie I gave the best two character sheets I’m aware of; how is that not an answer? Yes, there’s a bit of comparison with the other suggestion, but I would have mentioned MW (and my preference for TTW) if Zibbobz hadn’t already. Though the clarifications to the question mean this answer would probably work better in the opposite order.

comment How do Druid animal companions work?
The [dungeons-and-dragons] tag is only for questions about the brand as a whole; for rules-questions for a specific edition, please use that edition’s tag (e.g. [dnd-5e] for the latest edition). The rules do change a fair bit from edition to edition. It’s probably possible to answer this generically across all editions, but you’ll get more detailed and specific answers if you ask about a particular edition.

@Agostino Oh, it’s certainly a valid question, I’m just not hopeful. And while there are a zillion custom sheets out there, I’ve literally never seen one that diverged much from the official sheet conceptually. Most of them are just variations in layout and decoration.

@Agostino That would be the second paragraph. But mostly it's just a better laid-out and designed version of the one you’re using; numbers are still expected to be put in numerically. I don’t think a lot of people have even considered your dot suggestion (or similar), much less enough that there’d be sufficient demand to warrant designing such a sheet. At a guess.

@Agostino It’s pretty easy to print out webpages.

comment Can you make a Spring Attack with a single standard action that includes both the attack and the movement?
Mobility is even lousier than Dodge, even ignoring the fact that Spring Attack obviates it. The only advantage of Mobility is you can buy it with the mobility armor property.

"You can ready a standard action, a move action, or a free action." Spring Attack involves both a move action and a standard action; you cannot ready both. Various claims of the effectiveness of this build strike as quite unlikely as well.
