Onyx Path and Pugsteady Partner with DriveThruRPG for Phone PDF

Press Releases

DriveThruRPG.com announced this week that the Phone PDF, a new format designed specifically for handheld mobile devices, is now available. At the RPG gaming table, while game masters are likely to have a laptop or tablet nearby, an increasingly large number of gamers use their phones for quick reference.

Typical game manuals and comic books in standard PDF format use the same page size and pagination as printed hard copy editions. That format works well on tablets and monitors, but normal PDFs are not well suited to phone-sized screens.

In early 2019, DriveThruRPG worked closely with Onyx Path Publishing to create the Pugmire Phone PDF – which you can download FREE today! According to Onyx Path developer Monica Valentinelli, the Pugmire phone PDF format is 720 pages long and includes quick links on every page for ease of use. In addition to the Table of Contents, for example, added section menus allow for ways to reference rules and other important information necessary to play the game.

    Any chance we’ll see something similar for licensed properties? Or is that a decision made by the license owner?

      Just like Pugmire, which is a licensed RPG (owned by Pugsteady, not Onyx Path), we’re going to discuss options with the IP owners to see what works for those games while considering budget, resources, time to get it done, etc.
