About

Note: We cancelled this project because we goofed up the project length. The real project will be available here.

This masterwork piece of hardware is designed specifically for today's Game Master. It acts as a dice box, rolling tray, storage area, and features removable screens for hiding your rolls and notes. The Game Master System comes in a large variety of hardwoods and finishes, along with optional wood sculpts, engravings, and metal symbols - allowing you to create the GM System that is perfect for your game.

Versatile when opened. (Note: the 4 Slimline Dragon Sheaths are an add-on.)

How to Pledge
When you are ready to pledge, choose your Reward Tier based on your wood choice (Custom, Fiery, Premium or Mythic). Add up the extras that you want included in the Game Master System (Engraving, Wood Sculpts, or Slimline Dragon Sheaths). Click the Manage My Pledge button and adjust your pledge accordingly. Don't want the tray but want the screen? You can do that in the add on section too!

Note that you will be able to adjust your pledge after the project closes in our Pledge Manager. You will also delineate the specifics of your order at that time.

All backers that pledge within the first 24 hours to the $49 reward tier and above will receive a free set of polyhedral dice (not necessarily the ones shown below).

 

Compact and Versatile. The GM System doesn't require a huge gaming table or multiple shelves to store - it is portable and has a small table footprint. Its flexibility allows you to run multiple RPG systems with ease.

Integrated Rolling Tray. It has a fully integrated Rolling Tray that can be used for private rolls by the GM or for the entire table. (11" x 11" x 3.75" with an interior depth of 1.75".)

Removable friction fit Divider - can be placed anywhere you like. Dog Might LLC does not recommend whacking your players with it, however. That would be rude.

Removable Screen. Removable GM Screen that mounts on the Rolling Tray can also be used separately and stand on its own. (Each half of the GM Screen measures 11" x 5.5" x 0.5".)

Plexiglass Panels. A magnetic Plexiglass Panel on each half of the screen for note taking and securing vital papers in place. Plexiglass panels can also be removed to act as hand held notepads.

Removable, magnetized Plexiglass Panels. Perfect for crossing your players' characters out in red marker and cackling wild-- I mean, for showing that your players successfully beat some baddies.

Initiative Tracker. Six plexiglass Initiative Trackers that fit into grooves on top of either half (one panel) of the GM Screen. Each panel fits six trackers vertically or four trackers horizontally.

Initiative Trackers display easily on top of one panel. Dog Might LLC recommends displaying enemies in red to inspire fear in your players.

Strong Magnets. Panels interlock and attach to the Rolling Tray with strong, rare earth magnets. Panels lock to one another with removable screen bearings.

High Quality Hardware. The Game Master System has high quality nickel pedestal corners that elevate it off of your table, offering protection from spilled drinks and a convenient place to hide notes and maps.

Fulfillment. Game Master Systems will be built in the order pledges are received.

Kick Ass Guarantee. We are devoted to ensuring that every one of our customers is filled with joyous celebration.

If this does not occur, or for any reason you are not 100% satisfied, we will make it right for the life of your product. If you still have any doubts, read through some of our customers' thoughts on our products on our Testimonials page. Bet you can't read them all. 

  

We build high quality custom tabletop gaming hardware. From Deck Boxes to Dice Towers, each piece is created on site in our woodshop in Michigan by our devoted team of craftsmen. The company was willed into existence over 2000 years ago by a pair of insane axe-wielding Viking Lumberjack Gods. The Viking Lumberjack Gods had already been converting local Ents, and their less animated cousins, 'trees,' into high quality tabletop gaming gear for centuries. With the advent of the worldwide series of informational tubes, the Viking Lumberjack Gods realized that it was time to share their harvest with the rest of humanity. They opened the doors of Dog Might Games so all mortals could enjoy the bounty of Ent corpses converted into utilitarian gaming hardware. 

 

Risks and challenges

All of our Game Master System are made entirely by our team of full time Lumberjack Vikings. We are passionate about our work and know that gaming comes first. We use all of our products in our weekly gaming sessions - everything we make has been battle tested. We do everything in house: artwork, modeling, programming, hand selecting lumber, staining, shipping, customer service, and of course, craftsman woodworking. This gives us total control over all aspects of the project and allows us to maintain the high quality woodworking for which we are known. We routinely handle high volumes of orders and are ahead of schedule on our last two Kickstarter projects, and on time for our massive Component Collector project.
