I feel like I have a good idea on what PU7 is. Not so much on 8.
8 is considered a lucky number in chinese . . .

One of my players used to say, "That's harder than Chinese algebra!"

8 is 2 cubed. Maybe PU8 is about size modifiers?

Hmmmm... Based on the hint PK choose to post (and assuming he picked that hint based on how relevant of a hint it is) I'd wager that 7 is on wild card skills. No clue on 8 yet though.

It's like Kremlinology, only with less chance of a purge.

No, at SJGames. TBF, I don't know how many temps SJG has gone through over the last year.

If they ever do one on Critical Failures I want it to be called Screw-Ups.

More, almost obvious, confirmation from RPK on Twitter about the topic for Power-Ups 7:
Quote:
Wild speculation about the next #GURPS Power-Ups book going on in the forums; surprised no one's busting out divination or tarot cards.
From the first word to the last, the message is pretty clear. :)

I hope we get a few more teasers for Power-Ups 8: I like the suggestions that it will be about Patrons ("p-8-rons") or about mental disadvantages ("Section 8") or Wealth (Eastern numerological associations for 8), but we simply don't have enough to go on, unless I've missed a more obvious clue. I suspect we'll get a few more teases when the release date gets closer.
