Using A Tablet For RPG PDFs?

For some time now, I’ve been considering getting a tablet for my gaming. My pdfs are legion, and more and more I find them really handy to have for reference at the actual gaming table (though I still like having a hard copy or printout of the RPG as well).

I know we have to have a decent amount of tablet users out there. Any recommendations on things to look for? The two big ones I’ve looked at are the iPad (not being flash-ready sort of took the wind out of that one for me) and the Samsung Galaxy line, which a couple folks have mentioned in my preliminary research. I’d like something that’s got a long battery life, is easy to operate and read, and will hold a metric ton of pdfs. Oh, and if it doesn’t cost me an arm and a leg, that’s nice, too.

So, bring on those recommendations, or let me know if you use a tablet for gaming. How’s it working out for you? Any pitfalls I should know of?

Ask Your Rifts/Palladium Questions Here!

Since I've been talking quite a bit about Palladium lately, I thought it might be fun to have an open commentary thread where people can ask any questions they want about Rifts and Palladium Books. I'm not a company representative, just a long-time GM who's found some things that have worked really well.

So, if you've ever had a question about Rifts or Palladium characters, classes, GMing advice, setting, rules, how to handle something, classes, etc., feel free to ask in the comments and I'll try to answer to the best of my knowledge. Heck, you can ask me what's up with your neck of the woods in Rifts Earth! There's a chance a few more Palladium Game Masters might be around to answer things, as well. My two faves are Rifts and Palladium Fantasy, but I'll do my best to answer anything else you might have. Heck, ask me about kitchen-sink gaming in general; it's one of my favorite topics.

Let's face it: there's always a lot of talk about the way Palladium does this or that. There remain a lot of dedicated fans out there who love Palladium's games. If you've ever had a question on just about anything to do with Rifts or Palladium, now's your chance.
