But there's no way to even approach objectively measuring that kind of value, whereas amount of material you're paying for and how much you're paying for it is much easier to understand.POage counts alone aren't the defining factor of whether a book is worth the cost. I'd argue it isn't that important, actually. Hours of entertainment gained is the best metric IMO. Now, maybe Spelljammer will be a bad value on that front, too. Who knows? But just because it is 30% fewer pages (or whatever, I didn't do the math) doesn't mean you will get 30% fewer table hours or even reading hours out of it. I bought the Ravenloft book, for example, and read it for maybe 4 hours. Then I ran 20 hours of games out of it. Well worth the cost, even if it had been half the length.
