I'm inclined to agree. While a stripped-down rules set (the long-mooted "GURPS Medium") wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing, it's vastly more common to hear someone say "there's not enough [product]" instead of "there's too much [product]."

So, anyway, is it therefore proposed that three adventures, a monster book, and perhaps some character-building advice are "enough" to constitute a meaningfully detailed setting which currently reluctant gamers would be willing to adopt? That doesn't strike me as quite right. I should think that at the very least there should be an overview of the setting.
