I have some character cards for AD&D I picked up years ago at a convention. They are cardstock about the size of an index card. The paper is made to look like parchment and has some blue boxes where you write your information on it. The only thing on them to identify them is copy write 1980 John Yonos. Anyone know anything about these?

Could be the cards that the RPGA used to give out at RPGA events.  They typically summarized your character on a card like you describe.


Games can get you through times of no money but money can not get you through times of no games!!

You host the image somewhere, like Photobucket or whatever, and then it actually gives you a code to share the image in three different ways... use one in your post. That's if you don't wanna do it the manual way.

Really, it is pretty simple to do through Photobucket.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

What's the address in the bottom left corner?

Chances are it was a homemade thing with maybe local sales.  There seem to have been lots of homemade character sheet pads done in the 80s as well.

Yes it is a address at least a PO Box and they more than likely a local thing.
