MULTIPLE SHEETS IN A GAME

Score + 258
+1, I would love to play WOD on roll20 with different races, but at the moment is really frustrating

Just putting this here: many games out there use multiple sheets. Blades in the Dark, for example, not only has playbooks but crew sheets and faction sheets. Each one fulfills a different purpose, needing a different design. While the Blades in the Dark sheets published by Evil Hat are hands-down the best sheets on Roll20 I've ever used - they have had to invest time and money into making them work because they had to work around the limitation of not having multiple sheets (and this isn't even touching the fact that the R20 die roller doesn't handle Forged in the Dark pools...or Cortex either). That's not to say they still wouldn't have gone the extra mile to make their sheets full of awesome, but the platform's limitations would have necessitated some creative solutions regardless. Meanwhile, we've weathered two years of a pandemic and what I am guessing was a monumental shift to online play...and still not multiple sheets. Meanwhile, to my knowledge, many other VTTs allow multiple sheets. But hey, we got dark mode!

Where is the Roll20 Dev team? This should not be so hard to implement.

I will be honest, it amazes me that this is not a feature already.

++1 The utility would make this system stickier as the options for running VTT games increase. You *want* GMs to personalize their games.

I feel so strongly about this I have not paid for my Pro subs in a long time :)
That would make managing a large encounter much easier and give a GM a rapid at a glance for things.

I am currently running a Call of Cthulhu game. The module is not available on Roll20, sadly, so I'm doing everything myself in the way of maps, handouts, etc. Part of the module that I am running has alternate timeline scenarios. That is to say, the basic era that the game takes place in is the 1920s which is the default for the Call of Cthulhu character sheet but there are scenarios that can be run with the module that take place in the dark ages (circa 1200), and the gaslight era (circa 1880). At the table, I can run these easily by just handing the players the sheets for characters from those eras (and, yes, they exist). But, I'm having to skip over these optional scenarios in Roll20 because there is no way for the players to have a character that uses the 1920s character sheet and the Cthulhu Invictus character sheet, and the Cthulhu by Gaslight sheet in the same game. I could probably fudge it with the basic character sheet but it would require a lot of effort and it's just not worth it.  Having the ability to have multiple sheets would have been so useful...

I´ll add my vote. Having ship specific sheets for a spelljammer campaign seems kinda mandatory however the only way currently is to workaround using character sheets.
I add my vote. This would make managing Bestiary especially so much easier.
Over 200 votes and not a single roll20 response...

Totally missed that one. Sorry and thank you for informing me.

I support this idea. A very frequent need of mine is specialized inventories and trackers. Trackers for a variety of specialized party inventories such as shared bag of holding space, or loot left back at camp, or a tracker for the economy of the player stronghold. Right now, I use one of two methods to track those: Hacking them out in the Bio/Info tab of a handout, or using an external Google Doc / Sheet. I would prefer all  game resources remain accessible in-game, rather than needing to exit the game to use external documents, and hacking them out using plain text in bio/info leaves me with very little access to automation and validation. I would love to have the normal 5e character sheet as the main sheet for player characters, and then a custom sheet of my design for various inventories.
