As a Game Master, you'll find a variety of handy tools in this pack. Most
obviously, there's the GM Screen itself The purpose of the screen is twofold. First, it puts a barrier between you and your players, so you can spread out your material without fear of them peeking at the adventure or your dice rolls. Second, it has all of the most useful tables and charts from the WFRP core rulebook. If you need to roll a Critical Hit, now and find the right page. It's all you don't need to flip open your rulebook there in front of you.

The rest of the booklet includes additional tables and play-aids. You'll find a recap of the Dark Lores of Magic (page 27) (the rest of the Jares are swnmarized in the Character Pack). There's a page of NPC Record Sheets (page 25), which will come in handy when you make up yow' adventures. There's also a Combat Tracker (page 26). Feel free to photocopy a stack of these for use whenever you run a fight. You can. write down the Initiative Order on this sheet and track the condition of all your NPCs. The "Notes" section of each entry can be used to note Critical Effects, spell effects, ammunition expended, and anything else that comes up. Lastly, this booklet features the Equipment Emporium (page 28). 'This puts all the various equipment marts from Chapter 5 of the core rulebook in one place. •

The other major component of the GM Pack is the booklet you hold in your hands. The first half of it contains an adventure, Alfred Nufiez, J r.'s
