I am currently playing D&D but I want to swich to DR.I want to run a one shot.
For this one shot, I was thinking to print parts of the book, only to find out I couldn't edit a pdf.This made me wondering, why is dominion rules only available as .pdf or as book?Although .pdf is readable by many people I wouldn't call it an open format. You can't change it.
Anyway, a .doc version would be really usefull:- You can take the stats of a monster, change a few bits and print it out.- You can quote the rules more easily.- It makes it easier to create custom content.
However, the project can fork more easily.For example, someone creates a version based on science fiction. (I don't know if this is an advantage or a disadvantage)
Good point. The main reason for the PDF format is that it's easy to design a decent looking book then distribute it by PDF. But I can see the value in offering a TXT version or some such thing.
In a plaintext format the formatting(?) would be lost.I think it would be a good idea to use an open and/or common format:RTF (by Microsoft)HTML (by W3C) orODT (by Sun/OASIS)all of these are formatable, free to use and platformidependent.
I noticed if you're using "Adobe Reader" there is an option to "Save as .TXT"
So I saved the entire doc as one big TXT file and then copy & pasted the different sections into their own TXT files.
My reason for doing this is maybe I would rather make my own rule book with the sections in different parts, er, maybe re-order the sections a little more.
Crazy late to this thread, but a version of DR released via gitbook might not be a bad idea - it uses markdown for content and keeps the formatting neat, clean, and simple - and if you download a book, you can pull the data straight out of the markdown files as plaintext.
