I have this habit when I run games online - I want the adventure I'm using in print.
Doesn't matter if I wrote it, if it's in PDF format, hard copy I picked up at the game store, whatever the case may be. I want it in print so i can refer to it while it sits on my desk in front of my monitor. Alas, this past Monday, that was not to be.
Why? Because my printer was being temperamental, and for some inane reason decided it didn't want to print the first two pages of The Attack of the Frawgs. I'm not talking cover and contents pages, I'm talking the first two pages of the actual adventure.
To I slid my Google Chrome to the left side of my monitor, put Attack of the Frawgs on the rights side, opened up Hangout in G+ and hoped for the best. I figured I'd revert to the printed pages after I got past those few pages.
Surprise, I didn't. Ran it from the PDF and the printed map. And I liked it. I really liked it.
It meant I didn't spend too much time looking down at my desk but instead I was looking at the screen. Taling to players, look at the screen. Reading the flavor text and combat stats? Look at the screen.
Worked much better than I expected.
Of course, it does help that I have a 27" screen ;)
