I like the sheet but I use LibreOffice. The Excel one looks a lot prettier, any way to just get a blank PDF of it to roll my own?

Here's Eric's sheet:

Thank you for this, speaking for myself and all others who can't afford the coin/don't want to deal with Excel.

For the PDF that I am cobbling together, the "Ready Reference Sheets" for AS&SH, I'm now zeroing in on the following tables, which is overkill for a Ref Screen, but it gives you an idea of what I have nailed down as helpful and essential info for referees to have at their disposal.


  • Table 43: Unskilled Weapon Attack Penalty
  • Table 44: Attack Rate / Rate of Fire
  • Table 45: Monetary Exchange
  • Table 62: Armoured Sorcery
  • Table 77: Light Sources
  • Table 78: d6 Task Resolution
  • Table 80: Overland Travel
  • Table 81: Terrain Effects on Movement
  • Table 82: Becoming Lost
  • Table 83: Course Deviation (Overland)
  • Table 85: Reaction
  • Table 86: Combat Matrix
  • Table 87: Attack Roll Modifiers
  • Table 88: Armour Class Modifiers
  • Table 89: Basic Combat Sequence
  • Table 90: Comprehensive Combat Sequence (Melee)
  • Table 91: Comprehensive Combat Sequence (Missiles)
  • Table 92: Comprehensive Combat Sequence (Magic)
  • Table 93: Flask (Grenade) Hurling
  • Table 94: Turn Undead
  • Table 95: Combat Movement
  • Table 97: Two-Weapon Fighting
  • Table 98: Critical Hit Results
  • Table 99: Saving Throw
  • Table 100: Item Saving Throws
  • Table 155: Daylight Calendar

Thanks Jeffery.  I'll be doing this for a 4x6" 6-panel screen but this gives me a good place to start.

Hey guys, I just ordered me a Hammerdog 6-panel mini screen.  I want to put in pertinent ASSH tables so I thought I'd ask folks here: which tables would you use for a GM screen, no matter what size or how many panels?


General Discussion » AS&SH Reviews » 12/05/2017 9:55 am

In hindsight I regret I was a bit harsh on my part but yes, fine review.

And nice, text-based review of AS&SH 2E:

Ascending AC?  Did he and I read the same book?

Smokestack, did you pull the Hyperborea font from one of the PDF's? I have to imagine that's a custom font. I'd love to be able to put it on the front of mine.

Actually, that font/header I pulled from this very forum.  I found Jeff's thread where he shows the new header and used that.  I want to do a color version now.  I'll post pics when I do.

I'll be there running a couple of Gangbusters games and hopefully playing some AS&SH.


General Discussion » First AS&SH Game Saturday - Highlight » 2/19/2017 11:17 pm

One small highlight from our very first AS&SH game last Saturday - playing Rats in The Walls, the PCs were in the basement of the tavern and discovered the secret trap door. They looked at it, Eric's barbarian grabbed the edge and with a loud roar did our first Extraordinary Feat of Strength LIKE A BOSS! Flipped that heavy flagstone like a tiddly-wink! Applause all around.

Wow, that came out wonderful!

Thanks.  I'm quite pleased with it.   would've done a color front if I had a color printer.


General Discussion » AS&SH GM Screen » 2/02/2017 1:37 pm

Printed out the AS&SH GM Screen and redid the front for use in my new Hammerdog screen.  Yeah it's pink.  Not much choice but whaddya gonna do.


Convention and Game Day » NTX Con 2017 Roomie Call » 1/27/2017 4:56 pm

Rules Discussion » Ascending AC » 1/22/2017 11:28 am

My two coppers,

I've recently threw off my rose-colored glasses and made my peace with Ascending AC, as it IS faster.  BUT, I still complain about it out of laziness.  All this 30+ years of classic modules and I have to go through them and convert the AC on all the NPCs and critters?  Too much work.

  Any chance of getting a 'converted' version for use with OpenOffice? I swore off  MS Office years and years ago...

I'll second this.  The screenshots look gorgeous but, as the person above, I run OpenOffice.  Any chance on a version for that?  I know Oo has an issue with MS Office macros...

From the depths of the Black Gulf, your cries have been heard! Random encounter tables for both wilderness encounters and dungeon levels will be included as appendices in the Second Edition hardback.

Well thanks, that's mighty nice of you.  Now I'm looking forward even more to this release!


General Discussion » Random Encounter Tables? » 1/21/2017 1:04 am

I'll be starting up an AS&SH campaign in a month and was wondering if anyone has a line on random encounter tables centered on AS&SH.  I notice the set doesn't have any and I could always either come up with my own or use the 1E AD&D tables, but I thought I'd check and see first if there were anything released as a DL.

General Discussion » AS&SH GM/Referee Screen » 12/24/2016 1:50 pm

Beayutiful.  Now to change the layout to landscape and knock it down by one screen and I can use it in my Savage Worlds Customizable GM Screen..
