Back in my game-shop days, one thing that many folks did when considering a new RPG is to look at the character sheet in the core rulebook. It was a quick-and-easy way to get a feel for the game, see what information the designers felt was important, and get a glimpse at the game's style. In this brave, new, digital era (PDFs are how old?!), you can get the same experience by downloading character sheets.
Although it had been available previously as part of the preview, we recently added a downloadable stand-alone character sheet for the Girl Genius Sourcebook and Roleplaying Game (direct link to the sheet is here). And we've long had character sheets available for The Fantasy Trip, GURPS, and more.
Of course, if you want to make your experience really snazzy, we're happy to sell you items such as The Fantasy Trip: Deluxe Character Journal. But the core character sheets are all freely available to download, use, and learn a bit about the game.
