#RPGaDay2016 “Hardcover, softcover, digital? What is your preference?”
Hardcover + PDF. The hard- vs soft-cover choice is not so much of an issue for me, though given a choice and a book of sufficient size, I’ll opt for the durability and presence of a hardcover.
But… I desperately want to have an accompanying PDF file. PDFs are far, far too useful for prep, study, and handout creation. And, should I later decide to sell the hardcopy (because I buy too many damn games), retaining the PDF gives me peace of mind — “Well, if I ever need to look at it again, at least I have the PDF.”
Thankfully, this combo seems to be the new normal for RPGs.
