From time to time, a game can use a bit of a makeover. With changing times comes changing tastes in rules and attitudes towards different mechanics. With multiple playthroughs, sometimes a discrepancy is found. Or maybe a game has just lost its polish and could use a good buff. Whatever the case, new editions come out. In this case, Battlefield Press is coming out with the 3rd edition of Gaslight Victorian Fantasy, their alternate-history setting that uses the Savage Worlds game system. The book is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Imagine a Victorian world, but not as history tells us it was, but as the literature implies that it was. Believe that the literature from the period were more than just stories, but instead first hand accounts of the events that happened in the world. Imagine a world populated by the lost boys of JM Barrie, the Beast Men of Dr. Moreau even tales of an immortal vampire named Dracula. Included in these are organizations bent of determining what is best for humanity, and they have launched a secret war against others so that only one will prevail.
