I recently found an old Character Sheet in an item I bought. I did check the related Acaeum page and did not find a match. But because it says TSR at the top, I figured I would run past this esteemed group to see if anyone knew about such a thing from TSR.
I assume it was user generated and they just wrote TSR for good measure, but who knows.
Note I was only able to upload 2 pics due to file size restrictions, but there are 3 pages.

It's homebrew of some sort.  There are several spelling errors on the sheets.

The T.S.R. at the top could be a reference to the urban dictionary definition.
Or it could be from Tim Scott Russell's early D&D days before he got into Sci-fi.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . radishes.

Lol I don't think spelling mistakes are a clear sign it's not TSR, although I tend to concur on the probability of this being homebrew

I like 'DEFENDANT' for defender. Lawsuits & trials would go quicker if we still did it the old way.

There is a special nostalgia for me when it comes to old typewriter creations.  I can see myself as a kid doing this very thing.  Misspellings, wavy typeset and misaligned columns, it’s all good.  However, mine would probably have that liquid whiteout stuff all over it, that was brushed on for the really big screwups.

Aye, attempting to create lined headers and separators and such with consecutive strikes of the underscore key, etc., yet it doesn’t come out so level/perfect as you visualized. 8)

That's what xerox machines were for, since most of the liquid paper & some of the minor irregularities would be less visible in copies. There was a whole lost art of literal cutting & pasting.

While homebrew, it does follow a mixture of the elements from the 1975 internal Character Record sheets and from the 1977 Wham Character Sheets.  Which is somewhat interesting.

Interesting indeed. Would it then mean it was a TSR insider job perhaps? You make me want to find out more :)
