"Palladium is probably going to start a limited release of its books to be made available as PDF downloads within the next month or two via OneBookshelf.com, RPGNow.com and DrivethruRPG.com.
We’ll be starting with older and out of print titles and see where things go. But we feel the time is right to do it. In final negotiations".
I think this is excellent news, with the following conditionals:
-How much the pdf versions will cost (hint: if they're priced like White Wolf or current WotC stuff, count me out).
-When "soon" actually is (us old-school Palladium fans know how much "soon" can change definitions).
-The eventual scope of the program (if it expands to more recent titles, or is a small, incomplete scattering of miscellania).
Bring up Palladium Books online, and people immediately like to start talking about their litany of purported poor business/layout/gaming decisions. I'll leave that to others. I'll just say that I've had a lot of fun with Palladium products over the years, and for that reason, I wish they'd done this sooner.
