Keeping tabs on initiative

Both time we played with ChattyDM as DM, I grew envious of his Combat Pad by Paizo.

Sadly, these seem hard to come by in Quebec without paying as much shipping and customs as the product’s worth.

Today, Scott Kurtz of PvP posted (twittered) his method of keeping initiative – portraits clipped on the edge of the DM’s screen.

I think this almost as brilliant as the combat pad and a bit easier to build yourself.

So until I can grab an official magnetic combat pad – one or build one myself – I’ll consider hanging portraits on the side of the DM screen.
