Default The 2015 w23 Digital Release and Speculation Thread

In the glorious tradition of e23 speculation welcome to the 7th annual w23 Digitl releases and speculation thread! The first thread was maintained by SCAR in 2009. The 2010, 2011, and 2012 threads were headed up by Jalapeno Dude. The 2013 and 2014 thread was maintained by myself.

What’s on the record to come this year you ask? You tell me! All guesses were obtained via a crowd-sourced survey and include possible releases that are at the Editing level or better. Guesses for the release day are in Green text.

Speculative Sources

In addition to these forums, my sources include the blogs of Dr. Kromm, Phil Masters, and William H. Stoddard and Rev. Pee Kitty's Twitter. Roger Burton West's GURPS Fourth Edition: What's Coming Up is more exhaustive and less speculative than this thread can/will be.


Upcoming Pyramid Issues
  • Low-Tech III
  • Cops and Lawyers
  • Thaumatology IV
  • Overland Travel and Travails
  • Spaceships III
  • Zombies
  • Tech and Toys IV

Taken from here. It warns that "the exact order of issues is subject to change." Issues almost always come out on the second-to-last Thursday of the month.


Remaining Classic Releases

GURPS: 19 remaining non-licensed items (13 GURPS, 6 Traveller):

I don't mind. Should be more this year. I'm cleaning up the posts too and prettifying them. I should have this all up by tonight sometime, but I'm heading out to a friend's beach house right now for the next month. It'll be a workcation - but I'll get to relax some (hopefully).

The Autoduel item listed in the spoilers has been released on W23.

Thanks for all this work; it makes the forums more fun.
