Default Gaming Ballistic speculation thread

From the "How Great is Kromm" thread in Geeks Culture.

I'm very, very excited about this one. Might wind up being the largest project I've ever published . . . including the 288-page Dragon Heresy RPG!
Do you have any guesses as to what this might be? Douglas has said that he will confirm if anyone guesses correctly.

My guess would be an adventure path-like book.

Isn't this the adventure series about to kick off on Kickstarter?
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects.../posts/2617001

Hmm might be talking this one from the comment thread.
"If things go very well, I've got a massive project currently slated for 2020 that I can open up. It's got a lot of writing done, some art, and approval from SJG. First thing's first, of course. But if we're looking to crush the $29,000 stretch goal early, well . . . I think folks will like the project a lot."

My interpretation is that the soon-to-come kickstarter was already in the pipeline and that SJG/GB signed a new contract - but, I am of course only guessing/speculating.

Really happy to see Gaming Ballistic and DFRPG doing so well. And we are in the process of getting a very well-rounded setting line, who knew DFRPG was a Norse game?

I will confirm the project mentioned is NOT the Kickstarter launching tomorrow.

Iím not saying Iíve got inside connections, but donít be surprised if itís a 296-page treatment of realistic bows and archery for DFRPG.

Can't be. 296 isn't divisible by 16. Has to be 288 or 304.

Technical Grappling Expanded, including new rules for 20 different types of finger hold, nine ways to lock a joint, and detailed rules covering the differences in grappling for every size modifier from -6 to +6.

Could be a setting book for Nordlond.
