UPDATE Jan. 06 2018: The screen is now available in portrait orientation, as well as its original landscape format. Both versions are included in the .zip file, along with a new portrait .docx file for you to customize.


This is a four panel DM screen for 5th edition D&D. I designed this screen for use in my own games, keeping in mind the things that I specifically need quick access to or am constantly forgetting. I’m releasing it here in case other people have similar needs as me and have found themselves unsatisfied with other available screens. If you find this useful, please consider supporting me by re-purchasing the screen and leaving a donation.

Page 1: Actions in Combat, Advancement, Conditions, Cover, Donning & Doffing Armor, Exhaustion, Stealth, Resting, and Travel Pace.

Page 2: Stat tracker for up to 8 players, Area of Effect Calculator, Common Advantage and Disadvantage scenarios, Death & Dying, Spellcasting cheat-sheet, and Vision.

Page 3: Abilities and Skills, Container Capacity, Environment Hazards, Food & Lodging, Harnesses & Tack, Lifestyle Expenses, Mounts, Services, Special Movement, and Vehicles.

Page 4: Creature Stats by Challenge Rating, Encounter Exp. Thresholds and Multipliers, Mob Attacks, Improvised Damage, Random Feature Table, and Size Categories.

This zip file includes a color PDF, black-and-white PDF, and a .docx file so that you can customize my layout to suit your needs. The .docx file does not include the parchment background, as that asset is taken from the Creator’s Parchment Paper Background Kit by Arcana Games. Fonts used are Andada SC Bold and Tex Gyre Bonum Regular, both available for free.

While you're here, why not check out my first published adventure?

Beautiful. All the useful references, well arranged, and with an attractive yet simple and easy-to-ready style.

If you just added a B&W Portrait version, it'd be complete. ;)

great info quick question where did you get your shove info? Is there a newer supplement that expounds upon this? The 5e phb says,

"Shoving a Creature
Using the Attack action, you can make a special melee attack to shove a creature, either to knock it prone or push it away from you. If you're able to make multiple attacks with the Attack action, this attack replaces one of them.

The target must be no more than one size larger than you and must be within your reach. Instead of making an attack roll, you make a Strength (Athletics) check contested by the target's Strength (Athletics) or Dexterity (Acrobatics) check (the target chooses the ability to use). If you win the contest, you either knock the target prone or push it 5 feet away from you."

That sentence about moving to another space within 5 feet of you is from the DMG. Now that I look at it I'm not totally sure where the 10 foot shove on the screen came from, so thanks for pointing that out. Should be fixed now.

Thanks for the quick reply. Gotcha you must be speaking of the Shove Aside feature. I missed that one, righto.
"Shove Aside

With this option, a creature uses the special shove attack from the Player’s Handbook to force a target to the side, rather than away. The attacker has disadvantage on its Strength (Athletics) check when it does so. If that check is successful, the attacker moves the target 5 feet to a different space within its reach."

Lots of great info! I just wish the font was more legible. I went through and changed all of the small cursive to more average vision friendly.

Issue with the Dodge Action description: It says "if you have movement remaining..." Based on the Dodge action in the PHB (p. 192), there is no requirement that a character has "movement remaining" in order to take the dodge action.

Whoops, thanks for catching that. That was a bad way of phrasing "if your speed drops to zero." Fixed in latest version.

4th page of black and white variant has background in the current version, which it feels like shouldn't be there. May I ask for a fix?
Other than that, amazing stuff, everything is useful and easy to find.

Really great product! Lots of useful stuff on here.

On another note...
Any chance we could get a vertical-orientation of the inserts? Would love to put these in my DM screen.

For 2018, I've updated the .zip file with an all-new vertical orientation version of the screen. Enjoy!

I'm sorry to hear that! Is it giving you an error when you try to open the zip file or on the PDF itself?

Thank you for sharing your wonderful DM screen! This has all of the stats that I am constantly forgetting. This will save the game pause while I look-up a situation that I don't have memorized!

Are you planning to make a living off of this, or is it fine if I take it for free?

It's just a minor supplement, but it all goes straight to long-term savings. I'm graduating college in a few hours so if you want to throw me some cash that'd be great, but if you need it more than I do then absolutely take it for free. If you get it for free and like this screen, and find yourself in a prosperous enough position to throw me a buck or two later down the line, then that would also be appreciated.

Sure thing, sorry about that.

v.1.01: Corrected typos and inconsistencies.
v.1.02: Added a sentence clarifying Prone condition. Added notes on adjusting offensive and defensive challenge ratings.
v.1.03: Removed the empty box on page 4 where you'd write down the XP threshold for your party, added HP multiplier for damage resistances and immunities.

Nice! The real winner here for me is a screen with space for vital party stats (no longer sold separately). I'll be giving this a try for my next game.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
