A Gamemaster Tool

Anyone who ever sat behind a gamemaster screen mastering a pen and paper RPG knows these players' complaints:

 

Universal Gamemaster Screen

"But I said that I took cover behind that barrel! And why am I in range of this grenade? And that mage can not see me from this angle! So how can he then cast on me?"

In many role play games positions of the characters and distances between them are of great importance. It is therefore important for the GM to have all the rules in front of him on the GM screen and to have the current gaming situation displayed in front of him on a map. Usually the Gamemaster draws then sketches and plans to have a kind of universal gamemaster screen.

 

We too tryed scetches with paper and pencil in our role play meetings and used some cookies to illustrate the environment and the positions of our characters.

Regrettably every now and then in the heat of battle someone would rock the table, which messed up the whole carefully set up situation. A pinboard helped us here. The needles were our chars.

We then tried RPG map generators, we downloaded a lot of floor plans and even made various drawings ourself. Then a new problem emerged: If you put pins in plans and sketches, they make holes. And that's not good for a map (a universal gamemaster screen), especially if you want to use the map later on other occasions.

 

We then got us a magnetic board. Unfortunately it took a while before we found magnets that met our requirements. After all, they have to hold well, but not push each other appart or attract each other to strong (On such a universal GM screen the chars can stand quite close to each other.).

 

Soon a new problem arose: Sometimes, depending on the game situation, the GM hat to add something to the drawings and maps attached to our universal gamemaster screen. But if you add something on a sketch or a print with pencil and erased it later, some shades and traces remain.

 

We solved this elegantly with a transparent cover sheet. This even had the advantage that you could draw on the maps not only with pencil (if you wanted to erase something later), but now you could even draw in color with whiteboard markers. Unfortunately this sheet often got out of place on our gamemaster screen .

 

And then one of our gamers spotted those advertising frames at the supermarket. This was the solution to all our problems! A snap frame with a transparent cover sheet. We only had to add a magnetic bottom. The GAMERBOARD was born.

 

And when we made some GURPS sessions it became necessary for the gamer master to put a hexagon grid onto the maps and plans. With those the GAMERBOARD was complete. This is how you get it in our web shop today. That's all a GM need for roele play gaming.
