8 Panels of ... DOOM!*
Introducing the Dungeon Crawl Classic GM Screen, for all your d20 reference needs - skills, status conditions, weapons, armor, poisons, combat actions ... but we all really know that the purpose of a good screen is to conceal the times when you fudge the dice rolls.

(Interesting historical anecdote: one of the screen designs submitted included a translucent panel for “defending against thrown dice.” True story.)







The screen comes with a special release DCC: Alex Anderegg’s “Ruins of Castle Churo.” Not every DCC fan wants or needs every DCC, but every DCC fan who GMs will probably pick up the screen. It's good to see Alex's work come out with such a high profile release.

*The last time I was player (over 5+ years ago, now) was in Alex's long-running campaign, a game that featured goblins (who put the Viet Cong to shame), and a ranger whose signature combat style involved 2 morningstars. My personal contribution (such as it was) involved serving as the group's soothsayer --- a role discharged by reading entrails, the flights of birds, cloud patterns and inevitably declaring “Doom!”

Good times.

This does look like a really fun product. I've yet to see a DM screen that's as comprehensive as the one I think about in my head, but this one still looks like it kicks the crap out of the rest.

Looks awesome ... and yet another product that makes me scratch my head - as in "why hasn't anyone attempted to do this before?"

Pretty much every DM needs a good DM screen. The "official" D&D one from WotC is "meh", and, well ... I can't think of another one out there that met my expectations.

Somehow, I think this one will. :)

And I'm looking forward to reading "Ruins of Castle Churo".

*remembers H standing up, silently tapping his chest twice, and looking D in the eye, and motioning... 'Come get some.'* Best completely non-verbal role-playing ever.

And on that note - KLF is gonna rock you!

I am such a sucker for those old tunes. Still feel lousy for making you late to the Dramarama show.

Hey Har-

You guys got any plans/think you might be able to make it down here sometime? Matt might be moving in a month and we don't want to miss you before that...

Matt might be moving? Not Matt and Rachel? Hope that was a typo and not a declaration of seperation. Not to be discussed online, regardless.

But yes, I'm coming down the mountain the last week of March. I'll come find you two...

Matt's moving before me to Ohio. Most likely. And unfortunately, the last week in March is when we're going to check out Ohio :(

And Rachel will be moving too, but not until I'm done teaching in May.
