Keeper of the Unknown MC Screen


Brand: Secret Fire Games

Format: PDF

This 6-page, printable screen for The Secret Fire enables Master Creators to hide the secrets of the game from players and provides a quick reference to game material needed by both MCs and players alike:

Note: The PDF is large (approximately 100 Mb) to retain the highest print-quality possible. Pages can be printed out and inserted into generic game master screens available at local and online hobby stores or clipped to screens from other RPGs for use during TSF game sessions. You can also save each of the six pages as a 72 dpi jpeg for use on iPads, iPhones, or other tablet or mobile devices. In addition, the file was created for full-page bleed, so depending on your printer, you may have to shrink it to around 95%.

Praise for The Secret Fire:

"A flavor-filled approach to fantasy gaming that puts the mystery and magic back into the dark recesses of the dungeon."

Monte Cook, Creator of Numenera and Co-Creator of Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition

"With The Secret Fire, George Strayton has captured the sense of wonder, possibility and (yes) MAGIC that I felt when I first played D&D back in 1979."

Stan!, AD&D 2nd Edition game designer and Creative Director & Co-Founder of Super Genius Games
