Love pdfs!

#1 Postby Marshal Bob » Sun Sep 14, 2003 10:21 am

Hey I just want to say initially I was opposed to the idea of pdfs but now I am all for it I bought my first one the LCC the other week. Iwas oppsed mainly in the idea that I had bought so many books already and having to go from computer to hardback to get all the rules you need is a pain in the butt. So I was hoping that eventual you would release ALL of the deadlands books in pdf..is this a possability.

I love PDFs too, in fact, I rarely buy hardcopy products if a PDF is available. I have access to a high speed laser printer and a binding machine so I save a significant amount of $$$ ;)

I'd buy a product as hardcopy only if a PDF wasn't available.

Even if you don't have access to free printing pdf's are usually cheaper than hard cover. Not to mention you can print out only the pages you really want. I like to make players guides for my group to get them into an upcoming game.

As long as you don't print them in color ;)

In theory I like pdf publications as it gives me a chance to check something out without paying as much. In practice I dislike them because the ones I like I would rather have a bound hardcopy of. Yes I could go to Kinko's for that, but I never seem to do so. So I guess the best of both worlds is to have both options available.

My only real complaints with PDF are having to buy on line only (I like the experience of walking into a gamestore, not to mention, PDF kinda cut's into thier buisness!) and of course printing, I printed out the Deadlands PDF, at my local technigraphics, and it cost me $25, and they messed it up by printing fronts only, (which cost a bit more) and since they almost lost a computer printing that high volume and detail I figured it wasn't worth getting into an arguement about, so I payed them. (it still had all the pages just that they were all on the right hand side of the bound book!) I later front back printed it at my local college (having a massive print credit to burn) however I almost caused a riot with all the last minute paper writters backing up behind me! :roll: anyway it's nice to get them on a PC (or mac in my case 8) ) but there is something about holding a hardcover in ones hand, but perhaps it's just me.
