Help Us Create The Ultimate GM Screen!
Help Us Create The Ultimate GM Screen!

All components of the Wyrmwood Magnetic Game Master Screen are offered in several beautiful woods, both domestic and exotic, with pricing determined by your wood choice. No matter which you select, you can rest assured you will be receiving the Wyrmwood signature: handmade craftsmanship, an unconditional guarantee, and uncompromising service.

The Classic Panel is the foundation of the Wyrmwood GM Screen System. It takes the familiar Game Master Screen panel and enhances it with sturdy, luxurious construction, custom made in your choice of woods. You can choose to insert custom artwork on the player side of your screen, or allow the natural beauty of the wood to stand by itself.

The Classic Panel will make a definitive statement on your table.

GM Screens exist to conceal information from the players. The Rotational Panel represents a 180° turn for GM Screen design - literally. Now, the screen itself is a narrative device to tell your story in new, exciting ways:


  • Maps on one or both sides reveal a newly entered area
  • Art of a villain shows players the enemy they've encountered
  • The landscape reveals the view through the character's eyes
  • The contents of a treasure chest or vault, shown as it's opened
  • An important piece of lore, revealed at a crucial moment
The Rotational Panel will allow you to run your games and tell your stories like never before.
 
  • Connects magnetically to any other component in the Screen
  • Toggle ramp for public or private rolls
  • Rolls handfuls of dice with ease
  • Fully compatible with all Wyrmwood Dice Trays (available as add-ons in this campaign, see below
  • Don’t miss the new Mobile/Mini/Pocket/Travel/Small Dice Tray, making its debut here!
  • Dimensions: 13-1/4" x 6-1/4" x 3-1/2"
  • Weight: 3.75 lb

Dice Towers ensure fair, consistent rolls. The Wyrmwood Two-Way Dice Tower allows both public rolls, to be seen by the entire table, and private rolls, for your eyes only. To switch between them, you need only flip the bottom ramp.

When you hear the GM roll a die, it’s trouble... but when the players hear that ramp flip, players will feel a new kind of dread.

The Two-Way Dice Tower will add new layers of fun and drama to your game.

 

  •  Mounts on any Screen Panel, regardless of orientation
  • Makes turn order visible to the entire table
  • Easily make initiative adjustments "on the fly" as conditions change
  • Each tracker includes six numbered tokens to assign as you wish
  • Purchase multiple trackers for additional tokens
  • Dimensions: 11-1/4" x 1/2" x 1/2"
  • Weight: 1 lb (with 6 Tokens)

A few rounds of combat are often the culmination of a game session, or even an entire campaign. Yet during these action-packed and exciting scenes, so much time is spent hastily writing down numbers, then checking and re-checking who should be acting. With the Initiative Tracker tracking the turn order in full view of everyone at the table, the players are free to strategize and get lost in the moment, while you can keep your focus on making those moments the ones they’ll remember for years to come.

Our Initiative Tracker will help you keep the focus where it should be: on the story and the action.

 

  • Connects magnetically to any other component in the Screen
  • Four drawers for your gaming essentials
  • Drawers are our Mini Dice Tray, great alone or in combination with our Two Way Dice Tower
  • Oiled leather lining on the bottom of each drawer
  • Top privacy shelf provides secrecy and quick access
  • Dimensions: 13-1/4" x 5-1/8" x 4-1/8"
  • Drawer Dimensions: 2-1/4" x 4-1/16" x 4-1/6" (1-1/4" interior depth)
  • Weight: 4.75 lb

As a Game Master, you’re creating worlds, universes; dice and miniatures are fundamental tools of the trade. The Wyrmwood Chest of Holding is designed to keep you organized and make sure you have what you need, when you need it. That “lucky” d20 - the one your players hate? A pile of dire wolves, ready to burst onto the scene at just the right (or wrong) time? Or simply the character minis that your players forget to bring?

The Chest of Holding will keep your tools within reach, so you can keep your game moving.

 



 

Are you ready to take on a truly epic quest? Come to our New England Workshop, roll up your sleeves, and work directly with us in building your ultimate Wyrmwood Game Master Screen. You’ll have a hand in every part of the process:

  • Choosing materials such as domestic woods, exotic woods, and precious metals
  • Designing the Game Master Screen to fit the exact needs of your play group
  • Bringing your Screen from concept to reality

The Wyrmwood Adventure is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and at the end, you will have not just an heirloom piece for your game, but the memories of its creation as well.

The Adventure pledge covers the materials and labor of producing the screen - travel arrangements and lodging are the backer’s responsibility. We’ll contact you directly to arrange dates and timeframe after the conclusion of the campaign.

Exceptional Materials: All Wyrmwood products are crafted using premium hardwoods sourced from all around the world. We care deeply about the environment and strive to source our woods ethically and responsibly; to that end, we donate a portion of the sales of our rarest woods towards rainforest sustainability and preservation through the Rainforest Trust. For more information on their work, visit their website.

  

Hand Rubbed Finish: We use a close-to-the-wood oil and wax finish to protect the piece while allowing the natural character, feel, and color of the material to shine through. We never use dyes or stains. A hand rubbed finish is quite labor intensive, but we believe that the results are worth it, and we think you will, too.

Built For People, By People: When we gather around the table for a game, it’s a social event - we understand there is something special and unique about sharing time together as people. Digital tools and technology certainly have their place, but they can’t replace the human element.

We believe that what’s true for the game is true for the accessories you use to bring it to life. No robots or automation are employed during the construction of the Wyrmwood Game Master System. Each and every piece is made by one of our skilled craftsmen, right here in New England, and you are directly supporting our work every time you pledge to a campaign, order from our website, or purchase from us at a convention.

As a Game Master, you put a lot of heart and soul into each game. You can rest assured that our craftsmen have put their heart and soul into your Wyrmwood Game Master Screen, too.

Our Name and Our Word: Wyrmwood stands for uncompromising quality and customer satisfaction, and as craftsmen we stake our name and reputation on that satisfaction. If you aren’t thrilled, we aren’t done. This is why we unconditionally guarantee our work - for life.  

 

Every piece we produce is handcrafted. We take great pride in the fact that we oversee every element of the production and maintain full control over the entire process, from raw lumber to packed, labeled shipments. Thus, we can have confidence when we offer our Craftsman’s Promise - the cornerstone of our customer service philosophy:

There is only one acceptable outcome for our Craftsmen: a product that they can take personal pride in and an -absolutely- satisfied client. If you are unsatisfied with your product for -any- reason at all, we will fully refund or replace the item free of charge. We always guarantee our products, and we will always pay for shipping.

All Components In All Woods
All Components In All Woods

 

A very popular wood for cabinetry and furniture during the late eighties and early nineties, this is the wood of middle-class American childhoods. Glossy, polyurethane coated floors and cabinets make this the wood of the people. It’s popularity is well earned – it’s handsome and works easily. While not currently in vogue in kitchen decor, it’s doubtful we’ve heard the last from this classic.

 

 

 

Cherry is one of the few woods that one may wish to leave in the sunshine to darken, perhaps on a windowsill for a few days. It will shift from a pale, pinkish red to a deep, warm, reddish brown. This color change is initially rapid, visible day to day, but slows gradually. Like most fruit woods, cherry works easily, and can feature vivid grain. A classic, tasteful American wood for furniture and paneling.

Walnut comes in many varieties, but American black walnut is the most ubiquitous. An exceedingly popular fine furniture wood, it is light, beautiful, and works easily. Wide, flat-sawn boards can have brilliant figure and cathedrals, making excellent dining room table tops – perfect for gaming! A perennial favorite, and a truly refined classic.

Hailing from Central Africa, this dark grainy wood is strong, hard, dense, and stable. While it does not possess the pure black of Gabon ebony, wenge is nonetheless among the darkest natural woods to be found anywhere. Exotic and striking, it is very popular in decorative usage for its unique, wild look and distinctive character.

Extremely popular and sought after, rosewood is the quintessential wood for inlay, turnings, carvings and many musical instruments. Very hard, fine-grained, and crisp, there are many varieties of rosewood, some sold under other names. All of them take a beautiful polish and are considered fine tonal woods. Unquestionably one of the finest woods we offer, rosewood speaks of refinement and grace.

 

Purpleheart is a very hard, dense wood, primarily known for its remarkable coloring. One of our most highly varied woods in hue, it ranges from warm and subtle plum to vivid, cool shades of violet. Over time, the color will mellow to a rich tint. Purpleheart is unmistakable, unique among thousands of wood species, and many collectors count it as a favorite.

As we unlock new woods we will list them with their descriptions in this section.  We are currently building GM screens in these woods and final photography for all unlocked woods will be available in BackerKit before you finalize your decision.  Please, let us know if there is a wood you are looking forward to seeing in the comments section.  We read the comments and will do our best to include the most popular woods.

Risks and challenges

This project, as with every project we’ve done, is low risk. All the work is being done in our workshop, here in the United States. We're sourcing all of the materials early, and as soon as the project reaches its goal, we'll begin moving in earnest towards production.

This is our sixth Kickstarter campaign, and we’ve learned a great deal from all of those that came before it. In our very first, the Dice Vault campaign, we were able to meet our deadline for holiday delivery despite an unanticipated and overwhelming response. The rest of fulfillment was complete a matter of weeks beyond our initial estimate. We maintained open communication throughout, and our backers were very pleased - some calling it the best campaign of which they'd ever been a part. Our second campaign, for the Magnetic Dice Tower System, was described by one journalist as the "perfect Kickstarter."

While we're very proud of our past campaigns, we will employ all we’ve learned to make this campaign the smoothest yet.

This is a quite complex campaign, with a great deal of choices, options and add-ons, but we'll be gathering information early and often, and measures are in place to get production moving quickly and efficiently as soon as possible. We’re also allowing ourselves the necessary lead time to be sure that everything is in order and we’re ready to quickly, efficiently get you your rewards.

In short, there’s only one thing we really need: your support!
