Every time I write new work for whichever campaign setting I happen to be working on at the time I get that thought in my head that basically works out as why am I doing this? I know why I’m doing it as it’s something I love to do and even if the only person that was to ever read the work was myself then I couldn’t care less.

But it does make me wonder. Just how many people out there actually trawl through the internet looking for a pre-made setting for their games? Does anyone actually do that? I can only comment for myself because as you obviously realise I will write my own setting even before heading to the shops and buying one so surfing the internet for one really doesn’t appeal either.
Do you any of you, my good readers, actually use anyone else’s settings that they come across or do you just read it and maybe crack a smile if you find something you can use in your own game and leave it at that?
Curious minds would like to know.
