Hmmm. If -51 is a reference to Area 51, and SNO.... is not snow... are we talking about Aliens on antarctica? With Nazis? Probably not. But you got my imagination running wild.

Looking forward to all the titles mentioned in this thread.

But... but... does it involve Cabaret Chicks?

Some updates this week!
GURPS Template Toolkit 2: Races has a title and leaped forward several stages.
GURPS Powers: Totem and Nature Spirits is well into production.
GURPS Monster Hunters Power Ups Final draft arrived in house.
And GURPS Social Engineering: Keeping in Contact gives our second new title of the week and the request for playtesters went out.

It also appears two items by Redacted missed their first draft deadlines back in March since we haven't seen any further comments yet.

Now that Kromm has formally announced it, I'll confirm that I've written this particular title. It does include considerable discussion of meta-traits: they're subsumed under races in the Basic Set, their design involves a lot of similar issues, and it's really impossible to design the full range of races without using them.

Looking forward to it!
We now have 3 GURPS books and a TFT adventure pretty close to release, the DF Monsters 2 book I expect is months out despite its status due to waiting for the printed copy.
We also have several books recently fast tracked and in editing or waiting on playtest.

Not only do we have to order it, wait for it to get printed, wait for it to be shipped to us, and enter it into inventory . . . but it is also a Kickstarter product, so there will be the further process of getting it out to backers. We haven't announced a date as far as I know, but "months out" is certainly the right way to think about it. A lot of projects much further from being ready for release at this time will be released before Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 2 arrives in mailboxes.

I don't believe that's quite correct: it's one item, rather than two.

The Vehicles title, which we now know to be by Phil Masters, had a first-draft deadline of March 4, and Kromm's March 8 blog confirmed receipt of a first draft.

The Sorcery title, by Aleksei Isachenko and Garrett Norman, had the same deadline, and was acknowledged in receipt in the same blog entry.

On the other hand, the Hot Spots title, by an unknown author who is neither Riggsby nor Stoddard, had the same first-draft deadline, but hasn't been heard of since.

I believe the infamous "SNO-51" has a first-draft deadline of May 13; I wonder whether we'll get any further information then? And David Pulver's mysterious "Redacted Vol. 1" had a first-draft deadline of April 29, and so should already be in-house.

I really enjoyed Kromm's heads-up on the pipeline and due dates, though I can think of several reasons why he wouldn't make it a regular practice.

It depends on whether there are 1 or 2 Sorcery items inline.
I think its 1 but it might have been 2.
And yeah I expect to have conformation on Pulvers first item in a series being received on Fridays blog.
I also enjoyed it, as well as his and others comments in this thread.
Anyone recall seeing the authors of the Sorcery item before?
