    Lightbulb Rulebook as an item

    I'd like to be able to add rulebooks as an ingame item, so you can simply point at a rule in it and scream at the other player that they were wrong about the rule, which you sadly can't do in this game. Something like being able to convert a PDF file into a rulebook would hopefully not be too hard. Just convert the PDF into a format similar to the deckbuilder,add some kind of joint on one side and tada, you might have a rulebook. Or not. I don't relly know programming too well, and you guys sure as hell are better at it, and you are doing a very good job.

    If the rulebook is available on the net then you can use the tablet object to open that page.

    Some of the rulebooks come as PDF files and I can't open them on the tablet. Tried opening this page but it refused to open on the tablet.

Being able to convert PDFs to items would also be very helpful when it comes to character sheets for role playing games, and possibly even editing them.

    Upload your pdf to [URL="https://www.scribd.com/"]Scribd[/URL] works very well with tablets....

    Don't you have to pay for that?

    Just use google docs, make sure to make it public.

    I just checked Scribd. It's $9 a month after the first month.

    While this would be kind of cool, some PDFs (depending on how they were created) are a bit wonky. They could randomly crash the client.

    I just have a public Box.com folder with my rules in it for all my players.
