Is the term "campaign setting" actually used outside D&D? Ausir 10:26, 13 Aug 2004 (UTC)
Yes, and if I have time I'd like to give a rewrite to this a go. The present page should, perhaps, be renamed to D&D Campaign settings.--Pete Darby 12:36, 10 Sep 2004 (UTC)

The current article text is slightly unclear, in that it doesn't specify that AD&D and Chill are examples of RPG rules systems, whereas something like Krynn (Dragonlance) or The Forgotten Realms are examples of campaign settings. A reader unfamiliar with RPGs could get the impression that AD&D is a setting. Peter Knutsen 01:56, 7 October 2005 (UTC)

Should anti-genres be included? The Discworld RPG (based on the books setting, using GURPS rules) uses a setting that reflects and deliberately distorts fantasy stereotypes. Normality also had a setting in which standard fantasy elements had been taken to their illogical extremes in order to highlight and undermine basic assumptions of the genre. I think each of these could count as counter-fantasy. Anyone know other counter-genre games?
