Take out the spaces between the nested tables.  All the lines get bumped to the top.

So, when is this thread going to get stickied?

Second the sticky....again.....  We need a resource like this in an easy to reach place.  Yes the templates exist, but this conversation is good, and the tables are very helpful.  Something I did notice: the color tag (for text) does accept hexcodes.  That's the sort of thing I want in a sticky, a comprehensive guide to the homebrewing.  I'll work on adjusting my guide to include this, and some hints on balance and stuff.

So question on the colors for these templates.  When I made the original templates, I used colors as a sort of code, each thing had its own color, with reds being classes, and dark colors being spells/feats/maneuvers/etc.  I primarily made them this way because there are lots of different types of small abilities and there were more dark colors that looked good (also soulmelds ended up being straight blue, so that's a plus....).  So haveyou thought about that at all?  Anyone.

Okay, so I'm trying to get it so that a table has a bunch of columns (in this case 3), all collapsed nicely, with a footnote that spans the entire length of the table.  This is my current effort:

Material
Sand, loose dirt
Packed earth
Soft stone
Hard stone
Crystal
Hardness
0
3
10
15
30
HP1
82
52
5
8
1
1. Per inch of thickness.
2. This material is twice as thick.

As you can see, I'm still trying to get the superscripts right as well.

For something simple like that, I'd recommend using the tables normally instead of using vertical tables. You can use cellspan to have your cells cover multiple columns.

1. Per inch of thickness.
2. This material is twice as thick.

Thanks, I forgot about cellspan.  Out of curiosity, that would work leaving it as a vertical table, wouldn't it?  The superscripts would increase the size of the final cells, but the cellspan thing would work.

You can try it, but the lines will probably be off slightly.

I did it in a preview, and it was, but I think that might have been because of the superscripts.

Yeah, superscripts add a few extra pixels of height. The problem with vertical tables is that the rows of each column aren't aligned with each other. You essentially have to do it manually. That's fine when you keep the tables simple, but when you add a little complexity... :x

Are there any other colours supported other than orange?
Because I would like to make Pink, Blue and Green tables, but haven't been able to figure out how.

You can use hex code colors to alter it, use row=#FFFFFF, replacing the FFFFFF with the correct code.  Wikipedia has a list, and I'm sure you can find a more comprehensive list somewhere else.

Are you still wanting a post template for character sheets?

Post the template, I want to see it.

Also, Prime, I finally remembered to bring this up, but in the class/PrC templates, there's the phrase "how your class is persevered" instead of "perceived" in the last portion.

Finally, I have a question for everyone: who pays attention to the "sample encounter" section?  I've been thinking of just getting rid of it from mine, but it's in the books, so I'm hesitating.  I know I never use it, but that's mostly laziness.

That is the character sheet I personally use on here, it gets tweaked a little bit every time I start a new game.
