A Character Record for Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls
Ever since I started playing Tunnels & Trolls, back in November, I've been on the lookout for a good character sheet, and to date I haven't found one that was able to accommodate all the information that I like to have on hand, especially adequate equipment...
