My DM Screen

A few folks have asked about the DM screen I showed in a G+ post in the OSR Gaming community.

Pictured above, I made it myself for my ongoing Swords & Wizardry / Barrowmaze campaign. The tables on the reverse side are a mix of S&W, Barrowmaze tables,  & house rules.

I started with 6 pieces of 8.5 x 11 off-white card stock.

On the card stock I printed the following artwork & tables. I could have printed double sided, but using 6 pieces glued together gives it more rigidity.

Side Panel #1

Side Panel #2

To construct the screen, I started with a 6 pack of beer. Literally, I took apart the card stock "pack" of the 6-pack and used the hinged corners as hinges for the screen. By gluing the screen panels back to back, with the  "hinged" wings of the separated 6 pack inserted between them, I built a quick & easy screen.

Then I measured out the battlements and cut them out with an Exacto knife & ruler.

The final result:
