It would be great to have either Official or Custom printing options for Character Name Tents, across all game systems.

I currently use Pathfinder/Starfinder, but also enjoy Call of Cthulhu and other games.

Anyone else things this is a good idea?

What is a "name tent"?

It's a folded piece of paper with your character's name and information on it so the other players and the GM know who you are.

Cool as this seems, you could do it in Microsoft Publisher pretty quickly. Then you can print them off and take them to Kinkos or a copy place and get note pads made out of them. That's what my group did for notes and it wasn't that expensive.

Please do not PM me to inquire about datafiles I coded "for personal use" such as Exalted, World of Darkness, AD&D, or Warhammer 40K Roleplaying. I appreciate your interest, but I do not own the Intellectual Property rights to these game systems. Nor do I have permission from any of the Publishers to distribute the data files. As such, I cannot distribute the work I have done with community on these files. They are "for personal use" only. Thank you.

I printed mine on cardstock; one will last the lifetime of a PFS character.

and much, much longer than the life of a Call of Cthulhu character.

Yes, but HeroLab is such a great program, it should have an option for those, they are useful for all game systems.

But then you don't get to mispronounce their names for the entire session based on what you heard them call themselves at the very beginning of that session (or even entire campaign).

I'm glad you think our program is great, but part of the reason it is the way it is, is because we try to focus on our core mission, which is the creation and maintainance of characters. While "name tents" are a good idea, they strike me as something which is outside our core mission, and as other people have already said, there are several other options easily available.
