The TQC Android character sheet is an Android application that lets you store a character from The Queen's Cavaliers on your Android device.

The character sheet is not a stand-alone application; instead, it is a template for the RPG Characters FREE app created by Mattia Roccoberton.


Installation

You will need to install the TQC.json template to use RPG Characters FREE with The Queen's Cavaliers; you can also install an example character made using the template. You can either download the individual files, or a zip file.

Directory Structure

RPG Characters FREE stores data in the following directory on your Android device:

<syntaxhighlight lang="perl" highlight="1"> /storage/emulated/0/rpg_characters # characters are stored here

                                 /templates   # sheet templates are stored here
                                 /images      # image files for sheets are stored here
                                 /export      # exported HTML files are stored here

</syntaxhighlight>

Characters are stored in the main directory, with templates and images in the subdirectories.

You should be able to access the right subdirectory by going up from your Downloads directory. It might also be listed as Storage/SDcard.
