Default Custom GM Screen?

Hi there,

Just wondering, do you guy know any good custom GM screen out there to dowload? I was thinking about doing my own (since the official GM, although good, lacks a few tables that I find useful), but maybe it is already done by someone else. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Easiest fastest and cheapest way to do this would be to write those handy tables down in a notebook.

Second easiest way is to print your favourite tables and glue them to cardboard. The outside could be fitted with some tables useful to players.

Yes, I had something like that in mind. Actually, I intended to group the tables into pages and put them into something like this (don't know how to say that in English).

So, do you know if there is someplace where the tables from the basic set are already digitalized?

I'm almost certain that warehouse 23 sold a special "blank gm screen" that was several sheets of plastic where you could insert your own pages, but I can't seem to find it.

I plan on making my own custom GM screen - and the outside will have all kinds of stuff useful to players. They need quick access to information too!!

I've got one in MSWord for my Yrth 3rd ed campaign if anyone wants to chop it up and recycle it. I just printed it on a color printer, laminated it to 4 sections of heavy cardboard and hinged them together. 4 sides for me, 4 for them.

You should be aware that this is landscape. Personally I think all GM screens should be landscape.

Pretty much what I did and I liked the outcome.

Exactly right. GM screen should be landscape. Once you play behind a landscape screen you won't go bacnk.
