None of these links are Scribus specific, but I've found the information 
available at desktoppublishing.com and, believe it or not, about.com to 
be invaluable.



Also, I generally assume that if my final product is going to contain 
few graphics - say a border graphic every page, a 1/4 or 1/2 page 
graphic every third or fourth page and full-page graphic at chapter 
breaks - a word processor with basic page-layout functions is all that's 
needed. If you're looking for the full glory and splendor of WoTC's D&D 
3.5 core books, then... use a page-layout program.
