I don't really understand the #tabletop #rpg community's seeming obsession with POD. I've played out of PDFs all my life and IMO they're far superior to physical books. It seems like it's about collecting systems, rather than playing them.

@middenarde I find it a bit tiring on the eyes to read PDFs constantly, so I'll often print out chunks of a book when planning a campaign at least. I guess also sometimes I want to be flicking between two sections of a rulebook and a bookmark is more intuitive than trying to remember where to move the scrollbar to or what the page no was? Definitely see & agree with your point about better flexibility & update ease with 'living' PDF rulebooks though, that's a big advantage of the PDF form :)

@ExilianOfficial Understandable! I just don't get why a lot of reviewers flat-out refuse to review PDFs. Are they not "real" tabletop games if they don't have a print edition? Does a PDF here and a PDF there in your reviews add up to reading them constantly if you allow them?
