As much as I love the original Fear Itself character sheet, I always wanted to create my own version to add a bit of pizzazz. The character sheet is based on inpatient forms and clinical cards used in the now-defunct Rydalmere Psychiatric Hospital on the outskirts of Sydney, Australia. I think with this design, it supports a bit more readability, and opens up space for players to further flesh out their characters with more intangible elements like ‘The Worst Thing I Ever Did’, and so on. There is also an allusion to Invasive Procedures in the hospital’s name on the sheet. Particularly craft GMs may craft a campaign out of the available scenarios, with the big finale being in ‘Our Lady’s Hospital’. The player characters’ final destination has been under their nose all this time!
There are two versions of the character sheet, an immersive one with aged paper textures and blood effects (2.56 MB), and also a more printer friendly one (250 KB). They are both equipped with form-fillable blocks for anyone who wants to play online as well. Enjoy them! If you have any feedback, be sure to leave it in the comments below, or shoot me an email.
