....And I wouldn't want to play in a game where there was "...nothing but drug-addled hookers toting bloodied machetes all over the place..." Gritty is fine, but grit for no reason other than to show how ugly you can make a campaign just seems stupid to me.
I was just using it as a hyperbolic example.
I understood that. ...Or at least I'd assumed that. Actually, if anythying, I agree with you. If you want nothing but ugliness in your campaign, you should be able to include it yourself. Campaign books should give hints and pointers for creating a setting and one dedicated solely to a setting that makes Fallout look like fantasyland just has absolutely no appeal to me.
Still, Dega is right concerning the statements about WotC and mature content.
