I'm a little confused about the difference between the PDF offering and the book + maps bundle:

Does the book + maps bundle just contain more maps?

How does one get the maps out of the PDF and into other platforms, like VTT? Are we supposed to extract the maps ourselves using a tool?

Finally, what if I wanted the Hardcover Premium Book + PDF from this offering and the extra maps in the other offering? It seems that there is overlap and no economic way to get the best of both worlds.

Hi Don, the Bundle contains digital files (PNG) for the maps, which this product here does not. It's only a PDF.
If you need maps for VTT then the Bundle is more appropriated.

As for your last question, I'm not sure if the platform makes that possible but I can look into that.
In the meantime, if you want to contact my via email:

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
