Rifts® Automated Character Sheet for EXCEL

The next step in character data collection! This EXCEL template provides automation to your Rifts® character creation process. Done in Microsoft Excel, this character template will allow you to build your character with substantial ease and speed. Ideal for the new gamer who doesn’t know all of the Palladium Books® rules just yet, it’s also a highly effective tool for Game Masters and advanced players alike who make multiple characters, NPCs or just like to min/max or theory craft characters between games.

  • Dice Roller: A simple dice roller is on the main page of the character sheet to help with character creation or in game dice rolling needs.
  • Automated Attributes and Stat Block: All the bonuses and features from attributes are presented in a large stat block allowing you to easily see your bonus to save vs Psionics, Mind Control, etc. You can pick your strength type (Normal, Augmented, Robotic or Supernatural) to determine your carrying and lifting capacity and even your M.D. punch damage if you strength is high enough and of the right type.
  • Automated Combat Stats: The main page holds a section where you can pull up data for your various combat stats, from hand to hand abilities such as Strike, Parry, Dodge and Disarm, to W.P. bonuses including those of the W.P. Sharpshooting variety. This section draws upon all of your character’s selection of skills and abilities and even offers customization from odd O.C.C. or racial abilities.
  • Automated Psionics: All psionics from Rifts® Ultimate Edition, Rifts® World Book 12: Psyscape™ and Rifts® World Book 32: Lemuria can be selected from a dropdown menu that then populates tables with the information on psionics for your character. Each psionic ability’s data including damage, M.D.C. and range also automatically increases based on the character’s level of experience.
  • Automated Spells: All Common Invocation, Necromancy, Ocean Magic and Biomancy spells (yes, all the Lemurian Biomancer spells too!) can be selected from a dropdown menu that then populates tables with the information on spells for your character. Each spell’s data including damage, M.D.C. and range also automatically increases based on the character’s level of experience.
  • Automated Skills: All skills from Rifts® Ultimate Edition, Rifts® World Book 25: China 2 – Heroes of the Celestial Court™ and Rifts® World Book 32: Lemuria can be selected and then automatically add bonuses from prerequisites and related skills. Physical skills that provide bonuses also add those bonuses directly to attributes and combat stats. Bonuses that require dice rolls are denoted and can then be manually rolled and added to the character sheet. Custom percent bonuses such as O.C.C. bonuses can also be added to individual skills.
  • Automated Cybernetics & Bionics: All cybernetics and bionics from Rifts® Ultimate Edition along with some favorites from other books can be selected from dropdown menus which then tabulate bonuses and add them to your combat stats. Prices also sum up so an enterprising Headhunter can keep track of his hardware and upgrades. Simple cybernetic body part diagrams even allow players to allocate the locations of their various cybernetic and bionic components.
  • Freeform O.C.C. and Racial Power Section: A section for non-standard powers, special O.C.C. or racial abilities allows the player to add custom skills and powers that can be linked to those features to draw upon the character’s level of experience, I.Q. bonus or other stats so powers grow as the character advances.
  • Character Building Section: On the main page of the document is a section to help you build your character, from customizing attributes, to adding non-standard bonuses from O.C.C. or racial abilities, to an Optional point buy system for attributes.
  • Helpful Hints and Suggestions: Red triangular tabs appear throughout the document. Hovering over the red tab with the mouse cursor will reveal useful data from sourcebooks, hints, suggestions and other information, such as what a particular stat means, how it’s used in the game and what things can add bonuses or affect it. There is also a page with overview instructions on how to use the sheet, and a number of instructional videos will be posted via Palladium TV on the ins and outs of the character sheet. The first can be found here: youtu.be/a89XzAV37sE
  • Portrait: A special sheet is set up so you can add an image to the document for a custom portrait for your character. That image is then displayed on the main page and is protected from accidental movement or deletion from the main page.
  • Password Protected: Several pages of the document are password protected so players won’t accidently delete formulas and ruin the character sheet’s automated features. The password is provided so players can customize the sheet to their liking then protect the sheet again so they don’t undo all their hard work.
  • Note: The file is best used in Microsoft EXCEL 2016 or above. Some data may be lost if not using Microsoft EXCEL, such as when using similar products like Open Office.

I love the sheet. I use it weekly. I noticed that the vehicle part of the Equipment Tab is locked up and won't let me enter data. I wonder if I need to enter it from another place or if this was unintentional? Thanks!

Sorry about that, I found it too. You'll need to unprotect the sheet (the password is in the Instructions sheet) and highlight the cells and then format cells, and then uncheck the Lock check box. This will be fixed in the 009 release.

Thanks for building this. Just curious why the skills add the per-level percent at first level? I put in Prowl and at level 1 I get 30% when it should be 25% per *Skill Bonuses* (RUE 300).

I recently purchased this sheet. Thank you for putting it together. I found it helpful. Is there print functionality where I can print my completed character? I'm wondering if it can print the various tabs into one output or do I have to print each tab separately?

Yes, you'll need to print each sheet that you want/are using into a pdf. Combine the pdf and then print the whole thing from there. Otherwise yes, you will have to print each sheet separately.

I rather like that I print each sheet separately. I don't really want all the other pages if I don't need them. A Headhunter isn't interested in the psionics/magic pages and the Ley Line Walker doesn't want the cybernetics page, etc.

I have been using this for some time, and I love it. I can't wait for some of these new stuff that has been mentioned is coming.
I have been modifying my own for so time, I figured out how to add to the DATA sheet and have added Skills (such as new languages, Techno-Wizard Creation, the new Manhunters Skills) space magic spells, Psionic Powers from CS Manhunters, etc
I've been adding Character Class exclusive powers and skills into the populate-able lists (suitably marked) , and the like. I've even made a automatic techno-wizard creation calculator that uses the rules printed in R:UE using the magic spells drop menu, you just plug in the primary spell, and the other spells in the chain, and manually enter what gems you need and their per carat cost (this is the annoying bit), and how big a main gem you want... and it tells you the time, and costs to build it. I also add new entries to the combat tables for the main page to add and list specific weapons, attacks, and strikes, and thier total rolls...See more

The Techno-Wizard Construction Skill is exclusive to the TW, I typically put it in under the O.C.C. Abilities Sheet, but if you are careful you can unlock the Data page and add the skill to the skill section. Just be careful what you move around, delete or adjust as you may ruin it.

If you have the 005 Update the password is provided on the Instructions Sheet. Older versions are locked down with the primary password I use to protect the rest of the document, and I do not wish to give that out.

If your copy won't let you use that password its most likely because you have an earlier version. To download the latest version click on your DriveThruRPG Library and find the latest version of the file and download it from there. Hope that helps!

If you upload a copy to your google drive, and open it with the google Sheets app, you will have full access to the entire spread sheet, including the Data section.
I've used this method to add extra skill, magic, and psionics (Space magic, Zapper powers, and some of the new CS Manhunters powers and skill). as well as extra entries to the combat tables on the main page.... and I'm a total noob to spread sheets :P

heck I even created a basic automatic techno-wizard creation calculator that uses the rules from R:UE

The Techno-Wizard skill (as well as a few other O.C.C. specific skills like Vampire Lore) has been added to the new v008 release.

The password is listed on the instruction page, but you'll need the v005 or v008 to use it to edit the Data sheet.

Sorry about that the gang at Palladium Books have been super busy with some really big projects. I've tried to get the update published but it hasn't happened yet. I know they also experienced some server issues which may have lost some of my communications with them. I of course will continue to try and get it up soon!

I am really enjoying this character builder. Clearly a lot of work was placed into it. Newbie question, not sure if I am using it wrong or misunderstanding. Can I build an OCC, say select Operator and have it help me select skills and add attributes? Or do I still do all that manually? Thanks!!

There are just too many individual O.C.C.s to implement at this time, so I thought it would be best to amalgamate all the common features to most characters (skills, spells, psionics, cybernetics, etc.) rather than pick an O.C.C. and populate from there (lots of extra work on my end).

The current system lets you customize more easily, allowing you to took at an O.C.C. add the unique O.C.C. features manually, then pick all the common peripherals (spells, skill, psionics, etc.).

So to answer your question specifically you'll need to to enter all the Special O.C.C. abilities of the Operator on the O.C.C. Abilities Sheet. If you picked the Psi-Operator you can then enter all your psionics on the Psionics sheet and then pick all your skills on the Skills Sheet. There are also a bunch of "Red" triangles in the corner of many areas, each one offers insight and help on rules and building your character. Hope that help clarify things.

At the moment I have no plans for Ninja's & Superspies, though I love it and it is a game dear to me, I fear there is not enough interest in it to justify an Automated Character Sheet, just yet.

There is however all the Martial Arts from Rifts China and Rifts Japan, many of which are tweaked versions from Ninja's and Superspies.

So far I love the sheet. I'm using Linux and Libre Office Calc, and it seems to be working as it should.
I cannot seem to find a full instructional video on how to use the sheet. I'm interested to know how the table for the bonuses on the main sheet work. Thanks for the great program!

Mostly, yes. The individual super powers are not done, but psionic, spells and and skills are mostly compatible, their might be some setting specific stuff and M.D.C. to S.D.C. conversion you might have to mess with to make it work though. I plan to put together an official HU2 one at some point though.

Print/Save each sheet as a PDF, save it all together then print the hard copy of the PDF. The Printed Areas should all be set up in the Excel sheet already.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.

Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
