Pathfinder Stat Block Templates

So I'm building an Orc NPC for my brother's game, and my custom pathfinder sheet while good, is obviously still missing some things... especially for npcs.

Like any other person building lots of npcs especially now for not just myself but other GMS, I went looking for a stat block template... I still haven't found a electronic character generator I like for PFRPG so I was hunting for something simple.

Nothing, not even a fan made one on paizo's site (well I did find a generator spreadsheet but bleh was it a mess)...

So I sat in Open Office, while playing with a few of the pdfs from paizo (an adventure path and bestiary preview) and cooked one up. Then moved to Microsoft Word to make it behave there as well. The MS template doesn't overline the section dividers so if someone has an idea how to do this and it look good let me know. Also, please comment on anything you see it needs or doesn't need. Its designed with the export to pdf function in mind.

Now I gotta go back to work, but here are the templates.

I've also been doing some work on the realm sheet. I'm hoping to pitch it to paizo for an actual cheap pdf product, but that's gonna take some doing.


  1. That's good! Maybe you could separate the special abilities in two: Special abilities and Background, since that kind of information is pretty important to NPCs and doesn't really fall in the special ability block.

  2. Yeah, it's odd that paizo didn't make that separation a little clearer... I was shooting for an exact mockup of their design at this point...

  3. Thank you for this.
    Ill add comments after I play around with it for a while.

  4. Amazing, that's EXACTLY what I've been looking for! Thanks for sharing, mate!

  5. Thanks so much for putting this up! I've been looking around for something like this for awhile, and it looks much nicer than anything I expected to find. Well done!

  6. I know it's been a while since anyone's posted to this, but you can use Word's border features, have it affect paragraphs, and there you go.

  7. How I wish to almighty Nethys that SOMEONE would INVENT a DECENT free Pathfinder stat block generator!
