* ''Worldbooks'': Not every GameMaster may feel comfortable with -- or capable of -- the work involved in detailing their own [[TheVerse world]] to set adventures in. These books provide ready-made setting material, either in whole or in fragments (e.g. a single city which might be inserted into any general world). Licensed properties may be covered in this type of sourcebook; for example, ''BigEyesSmallMouth'' does worldbooks for many popular {{anime}}, while ''{{Rifts}}'' is well past it's twentieth World Book just talking about the Earth. ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'' has had several of these as well, mostly in the second and third editions.
