Thanks everyone, I greatly appreciate the advice.  I've stopped worrying so much about pages, I'm at 35,000 words and I've still got plenty more that needs typing and plenty of things that I'm sure I'll find out I need to add once people preread and playtest lol.

See if you can get ahold of this book, it should answer a lot of your questions.

"The Non-Designers Design Book" by Robin Williams

It's a good investment for anyone who desktop publishes.

Thanks Keith.

It was mentioned earlier that a "big boy" RPG is about 100k to 200k words.  Does anyone know of an example of a 100k and a 200k word RPG?  Anyone know how many words something like Dungeons and Dragons or those beastly Iron Kingdoms books are?  This is simply a matter of curiousity on my part.

I want to second this. As someone who has been in publishing for many years, I have not see a better book for the price. It is quite helpful and clearly written in my opinion.

Vampire and all the white wolf stuff was in Palatino... I think. All submissions to WW had to be in that font.
