If several 'worked examples' of the broader toolkit attract new GURPS GMs, then the system will thrive again. That would be a much bigger deal than DFRPG Town Adventures or some such.
Yes you can.
First off there all in PDF except for a few licensed books.
We need visibility and physical copies on store shelves helps there. However once you have a player PDF works fine for most in expanding.
That said if stores want hardcopy books there are quite a few they can order.

I got the inspiration from Dungeon Fantasy to run my GURPS Fallout setting. Stripped down rules set in a post apocalyptic future. Man I was a happy camper when GURPS After the End 1: Wastelanders and GURPS After the End 2: The New World came out!

As for other fantasy RPG's I stopped shopping around about ten years ago when I got into GURPS 4e.

In particular, I'd like to hear people's views on:

1. What types of adventures would people want to run that Dungeon Fantasy either does not support or supports weakly?

For dungeon fantasy I prefer to run light hearted games or to play with the conventions of the genre. My last DF game had self centered, self destructive members of the dark lords army as the PCs including a cowardly and sadistic goblin, demonic imps and others of that ilk.

To answer my own questions, I'm interested in using Dungeon Fantasy for wilderness hex crawl games, and while Wilderness Adventures seems to be excellent support for the crunchy side, there's still a few other areas that I'd like support for.
  1. A DF treatment of settlements and nomads
  2. Guidelines on building wildernesses
  3. Location idea seeds

None of this is required, of course, but it would be nice to have.

Most likely you already have seen it, but for what is worth this [DF] Hex crawling thread is active again.

Because there were adventures where D&D characters ran around "our" world? City Beyond the Gate (Dragon #100) for example.
