Was recently doing something that made me think of creating this topic. I was checking over my players character sheets to see if they'd added everything up right, and no had did not...

A couple of things struck me (ideas not rocks). Is there a GM screen someone's produced specifically for naruto D20? Hell even a D20 modern one would be pretty useful. If someone knows of one can they link me?

I personally find printing and continually correcting character sheets on paper highly laborious and was wondering whether anyone used some form of standardised system for recoding character details, such as the manner used in the friends and foes section. I've found mention of a naruto character generater in my first few glances through the forums, was that ever completed?
Or do people just use their own system? What do people find helpful?

Finally are there any cheat sheets people have made. e.g. quick reference documents to skill synergies, types of action etc.
Was thinking of listing all the skill, feat, racial and talent bonuses to skill checks I could find for printing as a quick reference document. Which I would make a prototype of this weekend.

But of course I need to ask permission before proceeding out of curtesy and to adher to Frankto's rights of ownership, and as such recognise that I can only distribute it freely at his say so.

If people would find that helpful I could post it in this topic for people to use, as my own small contribution to the furtherment of naruto D20. I have found that such a document would be very helpful in avoiding simple mistakes.

Thanks for baring with the newbies concerns, my only wish is to become the best GM I can be for my players. No that isn't sunny idealism, thats taking pride in my work and making sure that its done correctly.

Nothing wrong with wanting to be a better GM. In fact it's wrong not to.

I find physical character sheets for this system cumbersome, mainly because of ever changing bonuses from however many Strength and Speed ranks you happen to be using at a given moment. I keep my characters and NPCs in a purely digital format (Excel Spreadsheet). I would share but it isn't user friendly unless you happen to know exactly where everything goes, which works great for me but not so much for anyone else.

GM screen? Not in the budget.

References? Ok, there's a little help there on the interwebs. Here are some links that I keep bookmarked during game sessions because they are infinitely useful:

Hyperlinked Technique Index (may be outdated, check with JMantyk for more information)

JMantyk was also at one point working on an SRD for ND20, but progress on that is slow.

I'm pretty certain this is a stupid question, but still I must ask it.
I got no technical background in ICT, I don't know what to do with a RAR file.
I'll research it tommorow but figured it'd be quicker (albeit more embarassing) to simply ask...

How do I open this now I've downloaded it?

a RAR file is basically a .zip file, which I desperately hope you've heard of.

To unzip a .rar file, there are several applications you could get, but I suggest WINrar because it has a free demo that you can use.

Though, I'm assuming you use Windows. If you use another OS, then I can't help you <_<;

Downloading 7-Zip will also do it for you. I prefer it to winRAR because it's officially free and therefor doesn't have trials or whatnot. It just works.

Try this: http://dndsrd.net/toolsScreen.html

Also, currently working on a "DM's Booklet" for Naruto D20 for personal use, could upload it when done for other people if they'd like

It is nowhere near completion, but I the NarutoD20SRD.com is currently in development.

Just like it's inspirational source, this a one man opporation. Don't expect swift updates.

Edit: fixed link
