Wizards of the Coast have announced a new kit for aspiring dungeon masters: the Dungeons and Dragons Dungeon's Master Screen Dungeon Kit.
As the name implies, the kit includes a bunch of useful tools to help run your tabletop RPG faster and smoother with your group. If you are planning on finally meeting up with your players in physical spaces as lockdown procedures slowly lift around the world, these are vital items to have.
The Dungeon Kit includes numbered initiative cards to help you keep track of combat encounters, a collection of dungeon geomorph cards so you can map out your dungeon with some pre-made rooms and configurations, and a double-sided dry erase sheet that has a map grid on one side and a summary of character combat actions on the other. Better yet, the kit includes a storage box for all of these cards and pieces which helps setting things up.
The Dungeon's Master Screen Dungeon Kit will be available on August 17 on the Dungeons and Dragons store page as well as on Amazon and local hobby shops for the retail price of $24.99

As for which of these kits to buy, it mostly depends on what kind of gamemaster you are and what Dungeons and Dragons campaign you're running. If you enjoy making labyrinthine mazes full of monsters, traps, and treasure, then the Dungeon's Master Screen Dungeon Kit is for you. It'll help you map out your dungeon, keep track of secret doors and traps, and help give the players a better idea of where they are. On the other hand, if you enjoy more survival-focused experiences with the adventuring party traveling through harsh environments and want them to take basic amenities seriously, then the Dungeon's Master Screen Wilderness Kit may be for you.
