The 2019 Digital W23 Speculation and Discussion Thread
 
In the glorious tradition of digital speculation welcome to the 11th annual w23 Digital releases and speculation thread!
This series of threads was started by SCAR for 2009, Jalapeno Dude for 2010, 2011, 2012, Ghostdancer for 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016, Refplace 2017, 2018
Some Digital RPG indexes include the Pyramid Volume 3 Index by RogerBW and the Pyramid Magic Issues Index by Refplace, the Official GURPS Book list and the InNomine page
Guesses for the release day are in Green text.
POD on CreateSpace: Full Page listing all the GURPS Pod books
The CreateSpace option is another venue and makes some out of print physical copies available to us again. It is a new feature started at the end of 2016 and seems to be expanding nicely.
And what we all hope will lead to more exposure for GURPS some books are now available on Drivethrough RPG

Also checkout the Gift option now available!
This year I expect to see several TFT releases so its getting a counter at the bottom of the main post, along with the GURPS line. Sadly Pyramid will no longer be released so this is likely to have less topics.
On the upside Third Party licencing is set up for TFT and Douglas Cole at Gaming Ballistic released a successful third party adventure for GURPS last year and plans more so that will also be included here.
The Citadel at Nordvorn is his next announced one, Ill add it into the regular chain at the end of the year
Items in Seagreen below are speculated to release on that date.

That's 30 possible future releases that have been discussed thus far (this does not include entries under the on indefinite hold/rumor/vaporware heading).

I finished the setup for 2019 and added a update from Christopher Rice.
He made some nice hints and clarifications on his blog.
https://www.ravensnpennies.com/carpe...december-2018/

I especially appreciate his comment on that small contract which let me clear it from the list and his internal reference name for one of his two outstanding items.
An author designation like that can really help keep the spec list straight!
Eventually I will know what to merge from Kromm and the authors blogs (if any). Too often we have had to just guess and had previously published left on the list as unpublished.
Thank you very much Christopher!

It's hard to keep track of nameless projects. I know that from my time on the block. Glad it's proving helpful. (It's harder trying to give hints without giving the whole thing away.)

I thought your time on the thread might have had an influence :)
Douglas didnt take the hint yet <g>, but labeling them DF items will help.
Speaking, my apologies Douglas but the script doesn't like accent marks so your title for Citadel at Norđvörn had to leave them out in the spec post.
And yes I tried quotes.
Thats 17 items listed in the pipeline and I think we have a couple more under the "signed multiple contracts" hints from Kromm.
I will also miss PK greatly but maybe we will still see him a an author, he does have that unknown Fourth Edition conversion he was working on, though I suspect work was stopped on it.

EDIT
So I did a blog post and got to thinking, with Pyramid no longer on his plate anyone think we may see VDS this year? Or a new item from Mr. Pulver instead?

What hint? I didn't recall a hint. These are Dungeon Fantasy RPG items. I've even got a "Citadel at Nordvorn" tag on my own blog.

No worries, but the best non-accented way to write it is Nordvorn rather than Norovorn.

Means Northwatch.

Corrected the spelling.
I have your two unnamed DF items up there, and despite my joking around in this case I dont think it will make much difference. Since its Third Party we may not see any hints on Kromms blog or you mixing it up much. But it gets hard to track multiple unnamed projects as clues could point to different items, and worse an item might be even be published and we dont know that from the rumor sources.
