Default Re: Building a Fantasy setting: DF or Regular?

Yeah, I thought I was running a slightly modified DF campaign, but upon reflection, I am actually running a slightly cartoony fantasy campaign. Still, DF is my foundation. I think that it could be pretty handy for most fantasy campaigns. If nothing else, wherever a decision is made to use an option or limit an option, it is helpful to see those switches thrown and understand the thinking behind it. Also, it is a good example of how to use a lot of the chargen mechanics of GURPS, with many simplified abilities built as powers, skills, techniques, and combinations of those traits.

I think it would be helpful for running a space opera campaign, in that regard. It is the most well developed line of worked examples in GURPS, afaict.
