Default Dungeon Fantasy World Setting

Are there any plans for an official or semi-official world setting for Dungeon Fantasy , ala Mystara /Greyhawk?

Nothing has been announced. Of course, nothing has been announced as of yet for any more follow-up content for the DFRPG beyond the already-published traps, weapons, and second adventure books. At a guess, they're waiting to see how this stuff does before they make further plans.

Setting books don't seem to do very for GURPS... so not sure we'll ever see one?

Which is too bad. Some of my favorite setting books of any game system were the old GURPs 3rd edition ones.

Personally, I’m going to be running my DFRPG game in Golarion, and will be converting the Curse of the Crimson throne AP to the DFRPG rules.

Which settings are you referring to? While there were a few cool original settings (Technomancer) or fun reads (Fanatasy 2), most were either licensed or historical. Regardless, using a 3e setting for 4e isn't that difficult. They don't tend to be very crunchy.

Yrth, The Mad Lands in Fantasy 2, Celtic Myth, Arabian Knights, Cthulhupunk, and Voodoo: The Shadow War we’re my favorites.

With a lot of tinkering, the world of Thaumatology: Alchemical Baroque could be re-jiggered into a TL4-5 Dungeon Fantasy setting.

A campaign setting I want to use in the future is The Qanat Pirates of Old Than, from Pyramid #3/64: Pirates and Swashbucklers. It is pretty much one of the best dungeon crawling settings from pyramid. Add in Arabian Nights, and you have something to mess with for a while.

I would love to have Arabian Nights or Silk Road made into a Dungeon Fantasy setting but I know that would be *gasp* controversial. It might also be nice to have a fake Earth setting so that would not offend but would stilll be exotic and yet relatively easily incorporated. I think a complete new setting might not do well though because in order to start a dungeon delve you would need to read a long book so it really wouldn’t be beer and pretzels. Fake Japan or Fake Arabia would however.
