On the downside, one of the panels is mostly wasted on things like XP charts which I'm unlikely to need in the middle of a game. I'd have preferred to see that panel used perhaps for summaries of area attack types (bursts, blasts, zones, etc.) Additionally, the default DC (Difficulty Class) for tasks in D&D4 has changed since publication, and this change didn't make it to the DM's screen. On the plus side, the errata is a nice printable .PDF you can cut out and paste on your screen. Won't be the first time I've had to do this (looking at my Call of Cthulhu Keeper's Screen.)
The second benefit of it is all of the tables inside, and while I probably don't need the xp listings in the middle of a game, I do like how they have all of the status effects and standards DC checks all listed in a very easy to follow and find format. And while some people prefer the new DCs the errata has release (which did not make it onto this dm screen), personally I prefer the more difficult checks that were originally published (and are on my screen!).
Lastly the landscape format of the four panel wide screen is amazing, it makes it feel that your still apart of the table without cutting you off from your players. You can still see most of the dice rolls, and the action on the dungeon tiles (if you use them) without having to stand up every time something happens.
Overall, and by FAR, the BEST DM screen I have ever purchased, and for $9 it's a total steal!
That DM guy...
I do have a couple nitpicks, that didn't keep me from giving this 5 stars. My screen arrived very stiff such that it felt like I was ripping it apart or pulling at some adhesive. It's also a little annoying that the skill DCs were modified in the errata after this product was already sent to the printer. However, I've already printed out and taped over the old table since the lamination protects the screen. I've also taped over part of the standard XP chart with a list of defenses for the PCs in my game, since I typically don't need the XP chart in game. I think they could have found something else to go there, but maybe some people will end up using the screen during their preparation time.
I definitely think my money was well-spent on this product.
More like Bullet proof and tip over proof Dm screen.
Unlike the 3e ones, (I have one, friend had the second one they made) which you had to lean over to really see the player's rolls and or the game table and it's minis and what have you.
We have this one. It is a little smaller, easy to see over hard to see behind sized. It's much better balanced, and did I mention this thing is tremendously sturdier? You've gotta -try- to destroy this bugger to have it go down on you.
This is easily the best of the three Dm screens my group has. And as a sweet bonus it also includes a great deal better grade artwork. (though I would have liked another version but that's a personal thing) The old 3.0 one was utter garbage artwise.
The tables and the like are of course just as useful as they were before and can save you alot of page turning potentially although there were a couple of guidelines I would have liked to be on there that were not. But meh.
Vast vast improvement. Like the rest of the game has been so far. Thanks Wizard's.
