3.5 OGL Masters' Screen

Selected Option:

Keep your notes and rolls secret behind this game master screen, useful for running Open Game License (OGL) games. This product is designed for customizable GM's screens available online which accept letter-sized inserts in the portrait orientation. DriveThruRPG and RPGnow offer the great Hammerdog vinyl screen, if you buy one of those here, you can get the Cailore Fantasy™ screen inserts free.

Card One—OGL 3.5 Cover

Characters from A1 Lairs of Lawlessness, an adventure for OGL 3.5 play available on The group stand in front of the Open Game License 3.5 logo.

Card Two—NPC Class Information

This card shows the basic level-dependent attributes for each of the OGL NPC classes. The second set of charts show how much gear a PC or NPC of a given level might be expected to have according to their level.  Values are in Silver Astrum , which have the same purchasing power of gold pieces in standard OGL campaigns (see Card Three). Diplomacy DCs for influencing NPC attitudes appears on the final table.

Card Three—Advancement by Level

This card shows the progression of level dependent abilities for both PC classes and monster types. After those tables you can find the normal treasure awards for encounters by EL, or you can compute the typical award value of treasure by multiplying the number of XP awarded by the multiplier found on the Treasure per XP table. Finally, there is a table for the optional Cailore Coinage system we use in our fantasy games, this system uses silver as the ‘basic unit of coin’ instead of the gold piece used in most OGL settings, the result is that gold and platinum are 10 times as valuable as the would be normally, which makes several higher-level coinage issues less insane. The Platinum Talent is a two-pound bar of platinum which is the standard unit of exchange used by governments, being worth 10,000 OGL gold pieces. The art on this card was supplied by the very talented Juan Ochoa.

Card Four—Treasure & XP Awards

If random treasure is more your style, the tables on card four will allow you to create a completely random treasure hoard, and randomize gem values.  There is also a table for XP awards up to level 20.

Card Five—Encounters & Obstacle

Over, around, and through, this card tells you about overcoming obstacles, navigating overland and random encounters. There is also a summary of bonus types for OGL 3.5 games.

Card Six—Conditions, Poison, & Disease

Character conditions, common poisons and diseases are all summarized on card six. We’ve added a couple items unique to rth and Cailore Fantasy.™

Card Seven—Weapons & Armor

Common weapons are listed on card seven with their damage (small and medium size classes) along with critical threat spread, thrown/missile range, weight and damage type. Common armor from rth is also listed.

Card Eight—Saves & Checks

The last card focuses on player skill use and saving throws people requested to be on the screen. You can find bardic knowledge, Spellcraft, concentration, and use magic device checks, but also some attack modifiers, detection spells and a quick cheat-sheet for familiars.

Bonus Materials—Expanded Encounter & Spotting Rules

3.5 OGL famously gutted their spotting distance and encounter rules, preferring to let the GM wing-it. The companion booklet to the GM screen offers a fairly easy, but rules option that might help Game Masters who want some more substantial rules.

Bonus, Bonus Material—Introductory Activity

Lead new players through the ‘Lord’s Obstacle Course’ to get them used to using their characters’ skills and abilities—even fun to run as a contest with more experienced players.

Very professional looking. Nice table and a couple splashes of art. I like the added activity in the .pdf, I will definitely use it next time we start new characters. I printed them out on my printer that prints to the edge of the paper and they look [...]

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.
