But it gets hard to track multiple unnamed projects as clues could point to different items, and worse an item might be even be published and we dont know that from the rumor sources.
I'm not going to play this one coy. I expect to have Citadel crowdfunding in the first quarter of 2019, and the post-funding schedule should be similar to some of my prior works. A few months to procure art and finalize the PDF, then depending on how well the thing goes, it'll either be two months for printing (if we use the same printer as Hall of Judgment), or four months if things go nutso and we get enough backers to support an offset print run.

For the next two projects, I expect that once we see how well Nordvorn is received, and as the authors of those projects get closer to being comfortable with their working drafts, I'll announce titles and timing, but both of these are intended to be 2019 PDF releases at least.

So you are not writing the other two projects? Interesting.

I view my role as co-author and line editor. Iíve got Nordlond in my head and a vision for the world. Each author brings a unique perspective and I leaven with the high level perspective.

Sounds good to me. Shared universes need a good coordinator to keep things feeling consistent and meshing well. Also you having additional authors likely means faster output, which is good for GURPS!
Also it looks like GURPS has strong competition from TFT which launched its latest kickstarter today.

Looks like 2019 will be the Year of Adventures!

A lot of people ask for adventures and they are on the W23 wishlist but wiling authors has been a roadblock. So hopefully there is a strong market, especially in this time where it seems so few have free time.

Another thing people complain about is the lack of settings, they are wrong of course (GURPS book page has no setting category, so I made one) and what they really mean is not a setting that appeals to their specific desires.
So maybe Douglas Cole you could write up a setting book? At least an outline with maps. history and culture? Might be more fun for people to find out piecemeal but its a thought.

Perhaps. I've got three related products in one setting scheduled this year. If they all do well and folks want more background on the setting, I can provide it. But first thing's first: finishing what I've agreed to produce, on time.

Far as I can tell Terradyne is no longer available. I could not find it when I made my list from the GURPS Book page nor just now when I checked again and on W23. If you can find it a link would be appreciated.
