Today's update from Kromm was extremely vague about which items had just gotten art. What are the odds one of them is the Girl Genius RPG?

Good question. The last word I have on it was files sent for approval in March so its possible. However I am betting its all those short items as they would likely take less art and layout with a goal of getting new product out soon.
Also I bet the art for Girl Genius has to be approved (if not drawn) by the licence holders.

Why in the world is there a "Published" section in the listings? Isn't that just redundant with the Calendar?

Anyone else want to take a guess on Bill Stoddard's "followup of sorts to a previous project, with a large bibliography"? To me that suggests it's an "Adaptation," a "Portal Realm," or both. Since we've seen Munchkin Oz, could this be GURPS Oz? I don't remember whether the original Dennison art is out of copyright, but having that instead of stock pieces would be a neat trick.

If it's not Oz, what's another reasonable possibility that avoids licensing fees?

Do I recall mention at FnordCon of plans for a Kickstarter funding a brace of short GURPS titles, kind of a modern, digital version of late-3E's All-Star Jam? I can count a pretty varied dozen waiting in the pipeline for that trigger to be pulled, if I haven't just made that product up.

"Uptight Calimari" is an anagram for “Ritual Path Magic." How about "Marl Ankh"? Who would the "harm klan" be? Or do Scouts have a "lank arm" with an extra, sneezy "h"? Mutter, mutter, mutter....

There are items published to other places like Kickstarter and Gaming Ballistic which dont show upon the W23 calandar.
I dont recall AllStar Jam from Fnordcon but its been awhile.

Karma + National Hockey League ?
Karma + No-Limit Hold 'em (how to use poker chips for impulse buys ? )

Lot more possibilities if the l is a I, but nothing immediately obvious

And there was me wondering if Uptight Calamari was DF Denizens: TFT Octopus.

Good point. That will probably make things take a bit longer.

But that’s certainly not true of either Cold Shard Mountains or Vehicles: Transports of Fantasy, which are the only occupants of that section, and are both Steve Jackson Games products.
