I hate to be the Negative Nelly here, but the Stargate SG1 (5e system) GM Screen has terrible art.
I backed this on KS.

It's computer art, like it was from an old MMORPG, from 90's-00's. It's awful. Not sure how someone approved that.
The game has really good art, but why they went with this for the screen is beyond me.


I'll gladly take the crummy art of the GM screen any day of the week over getting the Stargate SG1 rpg's Metal Dice. The D4, in particular, is a lethal weapon and the heavens have mercy on your foot if you somehow step/jump on it. Or at least have plenty of paper towels nearby to deal with the profuse bleeding it could cause.

People bitched mercilessly about the art in the corebook. Of course they're going to try a different tack.
