Will we ever see such a thing? A game master screen is so useful . I need quick references. Going through different books slows everything down in my games. To anybody at Palladium please reconsider doing this.

Likewise on having all three sets. I think I actually have 2 of the TMNT/ATB one. I picked one up at my local half-price books for like $3.00 :-) Somebody somewhere keeps it well stocked with various RPG products, some of which have been pretty unusual or obscure over the years. At least one person on their staff is well-versed enough in RPG's to know the collectable versions of them, and they show up in the rare books cabinet up front from time to time.

That's similar to how I got most of my older stuff for Palladium. There is a Comic Book store in Fairborn Ohio called the Bookery and the same owner has a Game Shop right across the street that use to stock tons of older game books.

Of course my Original Rifts Gold #2 came from Maryann as a gift. :D

We have our new books and other products budgeted to the end of the year. We'd like to do a new G.M. screen, or two, but we'll see as everything starts to sort itself out in the outside world.

A 10 page Megaversal Screen, or a three pager with game-specific insets would be something that I could really get behind. Heck, if we saw Rifts dice bags and Rifts calculators then Megaversal GM screens should be a piece of cake for the powers that be to generate. :ok:

Also, I love the Hardboard versions that the 40K RPG has. Those are great. If they did screens it would be awesome if they could make them like that!

GM screens are bit old. Ive NEVER used a screen. For the quick references use the GM pack on your tablet.

lots of fan made screens on the boards... use the search to find free downloads of things made by the fans.

Yup, i make my own from various charts photocopied out of books, home rules, etc. then i glue or double side tape them to some poster board, put some awesome art on the outside, and then tape a hinge to the three panels, get it laminated and boom!
GM Screen!

Lasts forever.

I would like to see a compiled list of fan made screens for download on the palladium site- cutting room floor, that would be great!

Or a list of all the links for fan made screens.

Sucka MC's should call me sire!
I had an old re-purposed GammaWorld GM screen, with all of the relevant GM info I needed on the inside. Later on, I think I added a couple of player-facing notes to answer some basic questions (saving throws, etc).

How about a quick-reference app for GMs? Not the same as a screen, but it serves the purpose of info at your finger-tips.

I usually have a copy of my GM screens with me when I game, but I also have the .pdf version from Drivethrurpg.com on all my electronic devices in case I forget them.

I am an old school gamer myself, and I rather prefer having the old style cardboard screens. Part of the fun of the experience of my games is the ability to escape and unplug from our daily routine. I have inquired several times through the website about screens, but I never get a response. I would love to support my hobby with the purchase of screens, but at this point I will probably just make my own. It saddens me though to do this, because I feel like this is a missed opportunity to support the game that I love.
