Interestingly, October and December were good months for me, too, on e23. So it was maybe a broad trend.

I'm really looking forward to Ogre 6th edition. Put it out so I can buy it. I'm still painting my way through my (very large) ogre collection, but a countermix and nice maps would be really nice. (And I'd love an Ogre computer game, or net-based game, too).

I'm sad that GURPS only got a tiny mention, but I do know the pipeline of production works really smoothly these days, and material comes out steadily. I'm always glad to contribute. It would be be nice to be able to get these things POD, though - I have a few gaming products I got POD, and it's just nice to have. Even better are the ones that came as a PDF + print package, so paying extra for print was a no-brainer as I didn't give up a nice PDF to tote around on my drive and reference during play in order to get an easy to read hardcopy.

Just my thoughts as a customer and freelancer.

We already have two web guys, not counting the I.T. guys who handle the back-end stuff. There's a lot more to this site than you might think.

Given you have to keep both the e32 and the w23 catalogs upto date that's easy to believe. (plus keeping sercurty patches etc)

Oh, I'm sure there is, having worked on websites for a long time. But it never hurts to ask. (Heck, at one point I was maintaining the INWO FAQ page anyway.)

I'm prepared to claim that Munchkin is a fairly diversified product line as it is. Munchkin trades on pop culture parody, so fads in pop culture would be the main thing I'd expect it to be exposed to. With a dozen or so core offerings in different genres, they're in a good position to send up whatever happens to be popular at the moment.

I would love to see this as well.

I think this is the point people miss when the stakeholders report comes out. GURPS isn't a priority because its already running smoothly, so Steve doesn't have to get involved. Note that GURPS has as many staffers dedicated to it as does Munchkin (2 each). (E23 also has two staffers as well).

I tend to think of Kromm's Journal as the weekly report to the GURPS stakeholders.

This is specifically about board and card games and not RPG material. Anyone looking to write RPG supplements for our existing lines should visit:
