Default Efficiently Written

Howdy all; it's been awhile. I thought y'all might be interested in a little experiment I just ran. I cropped the FFE PDFs of Books 1-3 and printed them four to a page, front and back. By cropping the top and bottom margins of each page, I wound up with a dual column formatted book.

Total number of pages - 36. Now, the font size is a little small (though very readable). But still - that's an ENTIRE set of rules that let you generate characters, build planets, populate them with critters, build and fight starships, engage in interstellar trade, handle psionics and buy all kinds of gear. If I had the rules as a Word document and could reformat them, I'd make the type a bit larger, so the total size might be 45 pages.

45 pages.

Someone remind me why EVERY RPG these days has hundreds (and hundreds) of pages of rules.
