I think he’s hinting something cool is coming.

New entry posted in the GURPS thread of my DW. Despite tornados. It has been quite a year so far . . .

Also, I'm not deliberately cryptic as often as people seem to think I am!

There are projects that (1) are too early in the creation process to be sure things, so naming them would be premature; (2) are further along, but held up sufficiently by people who aren't SJ Games that SJ Games is unsure when movement will resume, so naming them would be giving false hope; (3) are associated with legal agreements like licenses or simply ordinary writing contracts that bind those in the know not to talk; or, (4) SJ Games feels would be fun as surprises. I jokingly call these "Sekrit Projekts," but as you can see, my reasons for not sharing aren't "I'm a troublemaker who likes to mock you." If I seem intentionally cryptic, it's because either one of those reasons was misread or (just as likely) I didn't watch my words closely enough.

For instance, when I said, "I worked on the Sekrit Projekts, one more than all of the others," I meant that I'd worked on several of the above kinds of things, and one of them got more time than the rest. It's difficult to say if it got more time than each individual other item or more time than all of the other items put together. My timesheet aggregates hours over many weeks, so the hours given to each project in any particular week isn't a figure I have to hand.

These two points both fit with the hypothesis that at least one sekrit project is something like a Kickstarter for a licensed "Powered by GURPS" book a la GURPS Discworld or GURPS Girl Genius.

It's probably PK's long awaited GURPS Cabaret Girls on Ice.

Wasnt there a Ring of Fire on the way?

Also great news on the regular GURPS meetings. Meetings are often a waste of time but that depends on the manager. I take this as good news that she is interested in the line enough that its worth her time and that she wants it to grow. Partly basing that on her initial post to us on the Illuminator and other comments made by staff since then. For example some of those long standing hurdles that seem to have been dealt with.

As I've been in the writing field for a looooong time, I personally understood that. But I have fun with the way you sound "cryptic" in your posts!
