I'm going to buy it as soon as I've got enough spare cash. I just paid for university and Critters, Creatures and Denizens.

Couldn't continue with reading it. I had a lot of work to do today, plus collegues had nameday, birthday, so we had to drink a few beers in the nearby pub.

I still say that "In the Prison of the Squid Sorcerer" is one of the best titles ever! Just hearing the name gives me shivers. 8)

Just waiting to see when a print or POD option becomes available, and if there will be a print + pdf bundle or not.

Same here. I am tired of buying pdfs and than spending twice as much money on printing them out. Just not cost effective :? Seems like so many companies are going the easy/fast rout now days. PDFs suck at the game table.... :evil:

Normally, I'd agree, but in this instance I'm okay w/ pdf only. ItPotSS is a collection of 12 encounters, some of which can be printed on a single page. I think the longest one ("Icon of the Blood Goddess") would take only 4 pages printed on both sides. I'm unlikely to go through more than one or two of these encounters in a single session, so a print copy, while nice, is not as required as it would be usually -- for me :)

We will be revisiting the Squid Sorcerer in future releases.... his story is only beginning.

It's coming. I swear. Just trying to figure out which option to choose.

Also, while we're on the subject of media -- would anyone use Squid (or any RPG product) on their pad-like device? I'm tooling around with an e-book editor and wondering if anyone would actually use an ebook version of this thing.

That's why I'm wondering if an e-book would be just as useful. Less computer at the table... though I don't know how pervasive the pad-devices are at the table.

I own a Nexus 10.

I absolutely LUUUURVE that beautiful piece of technology, and I use it for my DCC RPG PDF (as my rule book, so that others can use my dead tree rule book at the gaming table) and I run the Purple Sorcerer "Crawler Companion" on it as well.

For adventures, I'm very torn. Having a book is nice. I enjoy dead tree format publications.

With PDFs I can print out the sections--on a computer, not the Nexus--that I want and, for example, rename NPCs/locations as I see fit, re-draw/draw on top of maps, and generally add notes to the printed sheet that I'd be reluctant to do with a dead tree version that I paid money for. I hate the idea of dropping $15 on a book and then writing in the margin.

Does that help you? Probably not. :mrgreen:

I use the .pdf of the rule book on my iPad at the gaming table. I have lots of book marks so it makes looking things up very quick.

I'll read pdfs of adventures on the iPad, but for use at the game table I prefer to have a print copy. At the very least a print copy of the map. Makes cross referencing map locations and descriptions easier.

If possible I prefer to buy a print and pdf bundle.

That's exactly where I'm at. I like the PDF so I can rip the words to a word processor to change the thing (either update it as we go through -- especially something extensive like Barrowmaze -- or to alter things slightly, as in a conversion situation) -- and the PDF is absolutely required for prep work --- and I crave the printed version because I wants it.

Haven't found a use for straight up e-book/epub (not PDF) at the table.

I'm the opposite. I find that reading and bookmarking an epub is a zillion times easier than a PDF, and much faster too. I can't reading PDFs on my laptop, even way less on my tablet. Especially when they're 8.5x11. If they were digest, 8.5x5.5 or even 9x6, it'd be fine/better. But PDFs are so slow and cumbersome to me, even PDFs formatted that way are a pain, i.e. worthless to me. I end up printing everything I need out every time.

I want this bad, but I too am going to wait for a print version.

Currently trying to figure out the epub thing with images... Academic for the moment.

Post subject:  Re: In the Prison of the Squid Sorcerer now available!

initially I had no interest in this as I thought it was a mind flayer adventure. When I looked into it more and realized it was a series of encounters I was more interested. After picking it up and scrolling around a bit I think there are some good things in here. Worth picking up as a spring board for ideas, or as some encounters to use as filler or to flush out for something bigger.

Glad you picked it up! Let us know what you think when you've had some time to read it and run a couple.

Nexus 10: Almost 8.5" x 11" in size, and with a better resolution than an iPad.

Pure gold-coated-cocaine win.
