As a serious comment -- consider whether you would be able (and interested) in pitching Seoul for a GURPS Hot Spots supplement: http://e23.sjgames.com/wish_list.html => http://e23.sjgames.com/gurps-wish-list.html#hotspots . Adding a box on Paranormal/Urban Fantasy kinds of stuff, now and then, would probably be just fine for all the regular GURPS stuff. I could not, of course, promise that a box of "In Nomine Tethers" would survive editing -- but it might.

Add Zadkiel's Shepherds to the Minor Choirs list, just so I don't forget.

I'm not sure 3d6IN is "ultra-lite" anymore. >_> It's more "better bell-curve, slightly nicer to humans." Not that there's anything wrong with that! But it's not very lite.

One "i", I believe -- Liber Loci. Which would have been a great title for YAH itself.

Subiecisset is what I'm given for "pamphlet" by Google translate ... but in the spirit of the game, would "Epistle" be more appropriate? ;)

I might also offer "Encyclical" as an option for IN shorts. It's got a great (if admittedly Catholic) magisterial ring to it. "Folio" is also attractive.

I think Superiors books (all the ones who don't have the full Superiors treatment, every last one) are the highest priority in a lot of people's minds.

That would involve learning GURPS, and sadly learning the Japanese language is a somewhat higher priority right now. RLCF. A bit of prose on what I've learned about Seoul certainly isn't out of the question, but I'd have to leave crunchiness to others.

Personally I like crowdsourcing this, at least until something official gets rolling. Links to various fanons on the topic (including my own--might make me more inclined to write it more coherently) and file them all under rumors.

Excellent idea - I've changed the list to reflect that.

I've also added IN: Pulp to the list, with a link back to the current thread.

Locorum, unless we're talking about one place (which might well be for the mini-supplements.)

I was thinking of Liber Loci for a Single Place, yeah. (And remembering Genius Loci, which I think made it into the EPG, but forgetting how many i's it would need to dot. O:> )


I note that the What's Going On With Eli plot thread (totally optional for GMs, of course) was also supposed to be part of the postulated Grigori/CotG cycle. >_>

But adventures/cycles... Alas, they do not sell very well. *sigh*


tHEhERETIC -- don't count against being able to get someone else to go with you on the Crunch side. If you don't put in a lot of NPCs-who-need-character-sheets, it's possible that the Crunch required would be minimal. I'd have to double-check the recommended books (from the wishlist, er, list) to be sure, of course.
