So, I just stumbled across this in a blog that I frequent, Risus Monkey. This above link is the endeavor of a guy named Brent Wolke. He uses the system Risus, a rules-light roleplaying system which focuses on special character traits, called clichés. In the spirit of keeping things rules-light, he's releasing settings for the system, limited to eight pages only. His aim is to release one setting per month.
They're quite professionally done, and worth a look. Not only can they be used in Risus, but also quite readily ported over to other systems, since game mechanics are only a small part of them (the system itself being rules-lite really helps here). So, have a look, link it around, and enjoy!
