Fully fleshed and ready to roll! The setting is mutable and can accomodate a variety of gaming styles and material. It is a big help for those of us running DCC adventures as it (obviously) provides a wealth of background and mood elements for the series. It reminded me of my gaming roots (early 80's D&D) and I found it easy to integrate my old modules and newer adventures into the setting. My gaming group was pleased to have a more well-defined history for their characters to relate to and, over all, it serves it's purpose pefectly. I run several simultaneous gaming groups and having a distinct base to distinguish the DCC group from my others has been a huge help.
