Dungeon Master Need a Moment? Throw Up a D&D Loading Screen

| 21 Oct 2014 13:30

Ever find yourself in need of a few moments of peace behind the DM's screen? Well, have I got the thing for you...

Every Dungeon Master knows the moment. Your players have asked a question even you, with your powers of improvisation and thorough preparation, were utterly unprepared for. Or maybe you've got together the best notes you could, the adventure book was prepared, and your players blew through the encounters you'd reviewed for like there was no looking back.

Now you're stuck, stuttering behind your screen, trying as hard as you can to get ready to play. The players are staring expectantly but you're starting to lose them. They want more game and they want it now. If this were a video game, a load screen would come up. They'd hit the bathroom, they'd grab a soda, they'd chat.

Well, thanks to the efforts of reddit user CountedCrow now you've got that moment of glorious respite for your Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition Game. And, heck, a little elbow grease will turn these suitable for whatever fantasy 20-sided die chucking game you prefer.
