Just downloaded and will find a moment to read it front to back. Don't change that dial!

Looking through it, and I'm very happy.

Also, and this is admittedly a very small thing, but they took my suggestion about formula for healing under medical care and increased the +2 to a +3, so now a Medic-0 can keep someone stable long enough to get them to a real doctor. Wee!

It will also apply to the POD version, which will be made available at the same time as the retail printed version.

That's very nice to hear, since I got impatient and didn't want to wait for the "printed version + bits and mortar" to get the PDF. :)

Print On Demand. Basically you buy the book, an order goes out to the print on demand printing company, they print, they bind and then post it out to you directly.

I have a few POD hardbacks and was pleasantly surprised by their quality. Maybe not quite as good as a regular printed hardback, but good enough for me, even with the 'Standard' paper option.

How will POD price compare to a normal hardback?

Hasn't been decided yet, but it will likely be of a similar price to the printed hardback.

I'll wait for POD then because I don't normally pay $30 for a PDF.
