from the acknowledgements:
These sheets are a conversion of a set done originally by a Shadowrun player and fan that went by the handle Wordman. He had stated upon his own website, an intention to not update his original wonderful character sheet design to be compatible with 4th edition rules.
Realizing that sheets of a suitable design were definitely needed, I took it upon myself to update the sheets to match up with the latest edition of the game. It is with Wordman’s permission that this document exists, and is available for distribution.
A few pages are direct copies of his original design, while others are updated or completely redesigned to better fit the 4th edition ruleset. As a rule, the document from start to finish follows the design ideas and layout concepts originally created by Wordman, including this cover page.
While I can take credit for the arduous task of updating the sheets, the layout and design creativity lies solely within the Wordman. It is our hope that the community enjoys these sheets as they had Wordman’s original design.
