Campaign Setting with Toolkits

One of the more interesting things I discovered while working on Obsidian Apocalypse, is that when you build a campaign work, you never really know how people are going to use it to play their game.  When we built Obsidian Twilight (the predecessor to Obsidian Apocalypse), I thought of it as a zombie apocalypse setting but others thought it was a post apocalypse good versus evil setting. While even more thought that it would be more gothic / classic horror.  


The reason is that people have their own interpretation of the word “horror”.  So that is why we have a “generic” setting for Obsidian Apocalypse plus four custom toolkits that you can make your own custom setting and people have really responded to it. So I am wondering, is this something people would like to see campaign setting do in the future: One main “generic” concept of the setting a several toolkits to customize it any way that you might like to?  Please let me know what you think. Thanks!
