I don't really understand the 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.

Even when I played physical games with an IRL group, we just brought laptops and played with maptool. Especially as an indie RPG dev, it kinda feels like those people don't understand the work that goes into making a POD-ready book compared to a digital one.

I've updated the PDF several times to fix things, and just a few weeks ago I put out a new version that added saddlebags and horse packs since I felt they were conspicuously missing, It really helps ease the anxiety of publishing when you can update it easily. As soon as I put out a POD, that's all gone. It's set in stone.
