I voted PDF's however I do love a good book to flick through.
When all three source books are done Im probly going to fork out to get them as well as the PDF's

so here's my suggestion.  sell the hardcover/paperback editions with unique serial keys (ala PC games) that we can then use to
verify ownership and allow us to download the PDF's for free as needed.

better yet, make is so that you have to register the serial key through this forum to access your pdf will also add members to the forum and help direct players to this wealth of a resource. I for one am aware of at leasta  couple of gaming groups who own ICe products and have no idea that thsee forums even exist.

Any eta on when I can order a dead tree on the demand version? DTRPG only has PDF at the moment.

Exact same question.
The PDF is great, but nothing beats a real book.

I agree, nothing beats a real book. It is easier to keep track of pages and flip between them much quicker than a PDF. Don't get me wrong PDF's are real handy but not practical in all situations. I actually prefer to purchase from a local gaming store. The one near me needs a lot of support to stay open. The owner is still reluctant to place my ads for HARP demos/events because it isn't a game he actually sells in store. He wants people to play games at his store that he sells so he can make money to stay open.  I remember when there was a gaming store in every mall, the good old days.
I did purchase both the PDF and soft covers of Martial Law and HARP Fantasy, I am awaiting College of Magics in POD version.

Oh and by the way, not everyone owns a PC or a tablet/laptop, so the printed books in store are great for people like that. One of my players only has a smart phone to view the PDF versions.

I buy both pdf and the book (generally hard cover). I can't really read a pdf, so I need the book for that but a pdf travels real easy and you can search it if your looking for something that's not in the index. Quite useful.

I just bought the PDF version yesterday.  From what I have read so far, it doesn't look too different from the older version.  Once we get our furlough situation straightened out, I will be buying Martial Law and College of Magics as well.   :)

Unfortunately, we don't have a local gaming store in the area, so I will have to stick to ording the PDFs from RPGNow/DriveThruRPG.

When I asked about High Adventure Role-Playing at my local game store they advised that if I liked High Adventure type games I should try D&D!

Purchased PDF online through Drive Thru RPG and printed a nice spiral bound copy (for easy access) at my local office supplies store.

For now unfortunately RPGNow and DriveThruRPG are the solutions available to those of you who want the ICE products.  We're looking into options to get this out to the FLGS brick and mortar sites as that helps promote products and facilitates in store demo's and gaming - but many of those solutions come with high cost labor, storage, and capital investment.  We are still looking at it though, and will keep you advised when we have something ready to go.

Although there are two dedicated games shops in my area, the best best in the Ann Arbor, MI area would be Vault of Midnight, an "everything hobby" shop. This is mostly because I dislike the location and owner of one game shop, and the tight squeeze of the other.

I bought the PDFs from RPGNow, because being argentinian it's nearly impossible to get them in physical books.
