What info do you put in your homemade screens?
Something that hides papers from the players. I don't like to have it in front of me, because then it blocks my view, so I have it off to the side where it can hide things I need out, but not in plain sight. However, that location means that I can't actually look at it very easily.When you buy a DM screen, what info do you find really useful?
I really like the idea of a page number chart. A mini-index of frequently needed references would be nice.For a Level Up screen here's a list of things I'd want:
2) Strife and Fatigue values
3) Page Number Chart for Journey Activities, Region Types, and Weather
4) A rollable table for Journey Hazards and Rewards
5) Travel Rates
6) Rules for Bulk Items
7) Renown Information for ease of tracking the party's fame
8) Expertise Dice Size Increase Reference
9) Initiative tracker (Just a set of numbers from 24 down to -2 where I can slide a paperclip down the side of the Screen or put paperclips to mark different people's initiatives)
10) A Banner across the inside top of the screen that says, in bright pink or red letters, "Remember to give out Inspiration liberally"
There are landscape screens, the one I'm Using for Baldur's Gate is landscape, enough for me to have my notes hidden (plus I'm using a macbook on the side anyway to search and display maps, etc., but low enough to be more convivial when I'm seated.I wish a DM screen would be landscape rather than portrait. As to actual content I don't really have any good ideas.

Same with me. I'd add things like lifestyle prices, prices for meals, inns and stuff like that. I generally always have them on a sheet of paper somewhere.Pretty much my list too. I would add movement charts -including overland travel rates.
