BWG Online Character Sheet "The Scribe" v1.3

NOTE: There are still some bugs yet to work out in this spreadsheet, and I am not working on it at the moment. Please refer to the link below for a full list of the errors. Don't worry though, the sheet still works great!

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, brought to you by somewhat popular demand, I am pleased to introduce to you the newest member of our character sheet family: The Scribe (v1.0).

This is an online character sheet for Burning Wheel Gold, in the form of a Google Docs spreadsheet template. It's still a little rough around the edges, but it works serviceably. I'm by no means a spreadsheet expert, all self-taught in that regard, so go easy on me!


  • Up to 98 skills! (Upgradable to an infinite skill list, but really, 98 is overboard already…)
  • Automatic calculation of tests needed for advancement
  • Automatic statblock generation

To access this template:

  1. Log in to your google account, and open Google Documents.
  2. Click on CREATE —> From template…
  3. Do one of the following:
  4. Copy/paste the following url into the address bar:
  5. Alternatively, copy/paste the following template name into the search field: Burning Wheel Gold Online Character Sheet ("The Scribe" v1.1)
  6. Click Use this template

I apologize for the pain in the ass of having to follow these steps, but I currently have no way to link to the template itself.

More information is provided on sheet 1 of the template (which you can delete after reading). Any feedback you can give me would be greatly appreciated! I will update this spreadsheet with more functions at a later date, once I finish designing my regular-old pencil and paper character sheet (which is something I'm a bit better at doing).

It may not be readily apparent what the automatic statblock generation is all about, as the statblock sheet is empty when you first open the template. Here's what it looks like once you've filled in the other three pages:
