The Skyrim Character Developer is a role-play oriented character sheet utility, formatted inside a dynamic LibreOffice Calc Spreadsheet file, and allows you to plan and create clear and distinctive profiles for your characters' personalities, motivations, social identities, and backgrounds. It is not a game mod, but a resource for noting down information about your characters' personal identities for role-play purposes.

Many ideas, concepts and terms used in this spreadsheet draw from a number of online sources which I have compiled into a convenient profiling system. This can be used for either in-game or out-of-game character development. Whether you run a YouTube role-play series or participate in any other form of role play or fan fiction, you should be able to find this character sheet useful for establishing crystal clear ideas for who/what you want your characters to be and how you want to role play them! 

The layout and order of sections reflects an intended approach to developing a good overall idea of your character. Generalised attributes such as archetype, class, and trope are put at the top of the sheet rather than character name, age, gender, appearance, etc. This was influenced by the fact that much of the time I come up with ideas for a character, it is often these generalised ideas that I start with before I get to names and other specifics. Although you can fill it out in whatever way you'd like, this order of presentation is intended to encourage you to develop a character in just this way.

This character sheet system was created in the free and open source LibreOffice suite using Calc, therefore LibreOffice is the one and only requirement to use this.


With some link boxes, the hot spot for clicking may be located just under the box. This is likely due to the content being in a merged cell or a cell with a certain amount of vertical padding inside it. Just hover around the box until your cursor changes.

NOTE ABOUT MICROSOFT EXCEL: This character sheet may or may not correctly format in Microsoft Excel and could give errors when loaded. I haven't tested it yet as I don't use it.

Most of the ideas and concepts in this character sheet are not mine, but draws from several online sources I have spent time researching. These sources have been given credit within the first tab of the file! Please give them your support and thanks! 

I would love to hear your feedback in the discussions! Please hop in and let me know what you think!
