|(New screen in action!)|
Unlike modern commercial D&D screens, the Judge's Shield, like the later T$R AD&D "Dungeon Master's Screen," had information printed on both sides of the screen rather than player-facing artwork. While this wasn't super-useful except for the players sitting closest to the screen (ha, especially players like me who are nearsighted), the info was there so if needed someone at the far end of the table could shout out "Hey, so-and-so, what do I need at 5th level cleric to turn a wraith?"
(A weird not that the Judges Guild D&D "Judge's Screen" was apparently back in 1977 the highest sold Judges Guild item behind "City State of the Invincible Overlord" yet these screen are almost impossible to find on the used market. Granted they were not as well-made as the T$R version and had to be taped together (my original one is in pretty horrible shape, hey I was 13 years old), but I would expect to see one occasionally.
Shane Mangus over at "Swords Against the Dark" created way back in 2010 an "Advanced Labyrinth Lord screen" which I love and used for my first few Labyrinth Lord games.
I found there were a couple tables I was referring to often (monster experience awards, treasure hoards) that I would like on the screen. So, copied Shane's screen but instead of art on the player-facing side, I reprinted all the table's from Shane's screen. Then, on the game judge's-facing side, I replaced the panel with item information with monster experience point, monster hoard, poison list, and attribute stats.
Ha, then, because I am super nostalgic, I added yellow color same as the old "Judge's Shield."
I printed the resulting copies on 8 1/2 x 11 adhesive labels and tacked them on to an old "Call of Cthulhu" 3-panel screen and it works terrific. No one could read it at our ginormous (12 players!) convention game, it just looked good sitting there.
