Crunch and Fluff. Grrr.

This is wargaming slang that has moved over to RPGs in the last couple years - and it bugs me every time I see it.

Crunch basically means “rules” and fluff means “setting info”. In a wargame, “fluff” is really not important, hence the dismissive nickname. In an RPG, the “fluff” is the whole point of many books.
