Well, I speculate that I will back it. Is it even fair to call that speculation?

I'll back anything* GURPS-related by Douglas Cole.

*within generous reason

It's a DF:Denizens book on Dwarves, Halflings, and other short folk that just happen to go a little long...

This might have been because they were all influenced by Tolkein's Norse mythology roots, or because the concept of honour became more and more attractive as a result of social changes. However, the likeliest cause is efficient promotion by the founder of Douglas Cole Enterprises, and a bit of luck on his part.

Very cool. I assume it will have mundane animals too?

Nor is it enough that he should hear the opinions of adversaries from his own teachers, presented as they state them, and accompanied by what they offer as refutations. He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them...he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Some may be tweaked to be particular to the assumed culture (whitetail deer are from North America, so we've got Red Deer/Elk as the primary critter like that), but yeah, it's comprehensive.

My only problem is if this is a DF release it will be overlooked by those who just read other genres.
