The DM screen from revised 2E hands down. It had everything you wanted. The 3.5 Kalamar was great too but you needed a degree in map folding for it to be of use. What was your favorite?
Any screen that had art on it seemed wasted space to me.
This is just my preference but I prefer a screen with as much relevant information as possible. Of course relevant is subjective from person to person. I most often rolled in the open and kept the screen to my side rather than upright in front of me. I totally understand your point though and agree if I left the screen up most of the time.2. The player's side.
I havent either. Reason I started this thread was because I gave the 5E one last night and after looking it over while we were talking I realized how much wasted space there was compared to the useful information.Have not used one in a long time
Ideally yes. Im surprised WotC hasnt done this yet. If I were them Id Id take every table in the PHB & DMG and make them each individual pieces that you could pick and choose what info you want on your screen. Ive entertained making one many time through the years but never did.a good DM screen for me can't be just a printed cardboard but something more complicated
Was it the official one, or the free one in one of the box sets? Didn't use the box set one but found it thin and most likely would roll and fall over causing grief and certain words. The 1e/2e one was thick enough.I havent either.

There was two that I had one was the first one released and then there was the deluxe one released not long after. I think he took the deluxe one. They were very thick but I hate the landscape layout. The 2E ones I had were pretty resilient although even after being duct taped they eventually failed their saving throws and are in pieces now.Was it the official one, or the free one in one of the box sets?

Yea at least admit youre in the wrong, offer to pay for it or help make a new one.We were kids then (ranging from 18 to 24). These days I might still lend something, but only to someone I know would take care of it. The only reason I remember this incident so well is because I loved that screen and because I (the oldest in the group) had lent it to the youngest in the group and his excuse was that the screen got smashed up in the trunk of his other friend's car, but he wasn't the one who put stuff on top of it so it was not his fault. Of course, thinking myself the mature one who had to teach an important life lesson, I responded "When you borrow something from someone you are responsible for whatever happens to it while it is in your possession. Shit happens, but trying to weasel out of responsibility is a little kid move."
