This project looks GREAT!  It is about time Cthulhu by Gaslight got some love.

Yep, I've backed this one after backing Things We Leave Behind, which was excellent. Looking forward to this, as I'm working on a Gaslight project at the moment!

I was lucky enough to play in Stephanie McAlea's Gaslight game at this year's Continuum and we had a preview of some of the material in this upcoming book as part of that scenario. Looks like a great one from what I saw!  :-D

I've just backed this one as well ... it's great to see that Hudson & Brand has not only already funded but is perilously close to hitting the 200% funded mark!

 

Stephanie did such a great job with her previous Kickstarter (which is a cracking book of modern-day scenarios) that I fully expect this one to be an excellent product too. Gaslight really hasn't had too much love in recent years -- although there are several projects "in the works" -- so it will be great to see some new material for this setting make it into readers' hands.

I backed it as well. She handled the previous Kickstarter so professionally, that I would support just anything by her.

She definitely did and while its still got a bit to actually be all wrapped up, she's kept us informed every step of the way, plus with the pdf, we all got to see what kind of quality her company is going to be putting out.  I too, will back just about anything she choses to do.

Ten or a dozen pages of a scenario are a different sort of thing than a fez. Stretch goals are fine. It's the type that matters.

Maps were upgraded via a recent stretch goal and look superb.  Drove me to upgrade my pledge to a full color book.

This KS is very close to unlocking another interesting stretch goal.

This is still chugging along quite nicely. 5 days left.

 

I do wish the extra material option was a little more within reach. I upped my pledge once but can not justify doing it again even though I'm sure it will be wonderful.

It does look as if it's going to be very nicely put together.

The PDF version will have more content in it than the print version.

For those who are following this excellent Kickstarter might be interested to note that, as it enters its final 24 hours, Stygian Fox have added a new (and quite attainable) Stretch Goal which would see six full pages of period-authentic newspaper prop added to the back of the book, designed in part by yours truly.

 

If you like Gaslight-era Lovecraftian stuff, or just go crazy for high-quality Victorian newspaper props ... you may want to check out the campaign. But, as I mentioned, there's only 1 day left!

 

Fingers-crossed the KS hits its goal ... and that I get to design a monster batch of cool propware :)

This looks like a great stretch goal, and it's not far off! Fingers crossed.

TBH I have never run or played in a gaslight game, but this might be the supplement that changes this (I have backed). 

 

I also love the idea of a bunch of supplements for various organisations across the eras, this is an option I really like about the new edition of the game.
