I’ve found the best solution is to use something like Fine Print (or psbook in Linux) to produce A5 sized booklets. That works very well, and keeps the costs down.
The price of .pdfs is wonderful right now; I don’t mind paying $6 for a classic adventure or new supplement, especially as the quality (especially of the new stuff) is so good. Role-players never had it so good. As you said, there’s a lot of great free stuff out there too.
If you’re looking for an good campaign setting, the Mahasarpa Campaign is a terrific one based on Indian and Asian mythology. It’s a web enhancement for Oriental Adventures (which I’ve just finished re-reading), but that isn’t really needed to get the feel of the setting. I ran a campaign using this setting a while back and loved it.
The Platyer's Guide to Ptolus is a free download, and it’s probably the best city-based/urban campaign setting ever made. I’d troughing through it now.

Thanks for the pointers! I will look into it.

Kitsunemori tönt sehr gut, z. B. der Höfling (spielt es in der Zeit von Genji oder Heike? Ah, beides wäre für diesen Charakter ein Fest) oder Shinto-Priester (der vielleicht mit Kaligraphien Demönen beschwört oder Schutzzauber wirkt) oder natürlich der Bogeschützte…
