Classic Edition GM Screen Kickstarter Spotlight

It may seem that tabletop role-playing games are almost a thing of the past, but the truth is that many folks like me are finding ourselves drawn back to the familiarity of paper and dice. Be it nostalgia or maybe even just wanting to pretend to be teens again, I have seen a resurgence for old school gaming amongst my friends. Once, it was often difficult to track down supplies such as dice, books, and assorted other accessories. Now, thanks to online shopping, that is not the case.

However, finding applicable items can be difficult if you aren’t playing the newest editions. And that’s where this Kickstarter campaign for Classic Edition GM Screen comes in. Read on, if this seems like your cup of tea.

Comprised of six heavyweight double-sided panels, this gaming screen has a tremendous amount of data packed into it. To make it easier, here is the partial list from the official Kickstarter page itself:

  • Experience point & spell level progressions for each character class
  • Class-based combat & saving throw tables
  • Class abilities & attribute adjustments
  • Tables for Clerical turning and Thieves’ abilities
  • Variable damage by weapon; missile fire ranges; AC by armor type
  • Step-by-step outlines for both turn sequence & combat sequence
  • A simplified Treasure Types table
  • Comprehensive cost lists for weapons, equipment, and animals
  • Complete movement information (including dungeon, wilderness, airborne, and encumbered movement)
  • Henchmen/hirelings, mercenaries & specialists (recruitment, requirements, salaries, and abilities)
  • But wait! That’s not all! Okay, I’ve always wanted to say that, please forgive me. But in all seriousness there really is a whole lot more. There’s an eight page GM reference booklet, eight master character sheets on card stock (seven class specific ones with a generic for your own NPCs or specialty characters), there are record sheets and even spell list handouts for the mages and clerics. That’s a lot of material that gamers use almost every time they play.

    I’ve saved the best for last. In most of the crowdfunding campaigns, there are a multitude of pledge levels that come with a laundry list of incentives. In this particular case, however, there are but three reward levels. For only seven dollars, you get a digital copy of everything. That’s right, I said everything. For just over forty bucks you get the actual physical copies and the added bonus of digital copies, too. Have a friend who would like it? The last tier is just slightly more than seventy dollars and comes with two of everything, in addition to the digital versions. Sweet, simple, and to the point. It cannot get any easier than that.

    I know this isn’t for everyone, but it pretty remarkable in that it is a throwback to the early days of role-playing games and tugs on my sentimental heart strings a bit. So watch the video below, check out the official Kickstarter page, and relive your younger days through some old school RPG fun. But watch the time, because this fundraiser ends the morning of April 4, 2016. There’s no need to roll for initiative, all you’ve got to do is click the link!
