A look at GURPS Mysteries and its PDF version.

My print-on-demand (POD) copy of GURPS Mysteries came in the mail today; as it happens, I bought the PDF version years ago. But I also rather wanted a physical copy to go with my other GURPS books, so I picked up the POD and decided to compare the two.  If nothing else, it’s a little instructive about how the state of the art has advanced.

  • Similarities: Both versions have clean, easily-read pages.  The interior to the PDF version happened to be in black and white, so there’s no real difference in coloration.  Obviously, the text has remained virtually unchanged.
  • Differences: The pages of the POD are not glossy (the binding seems firm and stable).  The PDF version has marginally sharper text than the POD version.  Images are likewise slightly better-looking in the PDF version.  Obviously, you can search the PDF copy for text; just as obviously, the POD copy still works if the power goes out.

So, GURPS Mysteries 4E is on CreateSpace.

…hold up, I don’t have this one in print.

I mean. Wow.  It’s not every day that I can pick up a GURPS book that I don’t actually have in print already.  Seriously,  I’ve been waiting for them to put some of their electronic-only stuff up. I’m hoping for GURPS Supers 4E next, not least because I’m not really sure that it ever had a print version in the first place.
