We're getting the art/layout sorted for the English version. We'll have it out as soon as that's done.

If I understand this correctly, Ulisses Spiele will release a nice 16-pages character portfolio for the German edition of Earthdawn 4 this summer.
Could be an interesting thing for FASA to translate in English, even if it's just as a "print it yourself" product :)

It's likely.

I don't know if anybody remembers the character dossiers that RedBrick did back a decade or so ago. It was a similar "deluxe" sheet with a lot of pages.

I like a good character sheet. I wish I had the layout/design skills and time to put one together. I'd like to see a sheet with a bit more flair, boxes (or some other shape) for Defense ratings that easily stand out from the other numbers, that kind of thing.

I could try to make english version of those. They are meant to be printed on A3 and folded into a booklet.

The page with the attributes and stuff? That's the sort of thing I'm talking about. Design it so the most important information stands out and is easily identifiable from the rest.

I assume the Step Dice are what go in the biggest box?
