– not - - That is all.
As i continue to put the final, finishing touches on Gaslight, i thought i'd offer up another preview- this time, a glimpse of what will be the brand new character sheet for Gaslight. This was created by the wonderfully talented Dean Engelhardt, whose work you may recognize from Yog-Sothoth.com; his earlier version of a 1890s character sheet premiered there, and it's through that site that i contacted him to work on a new version specific to the source book. I hope you enjoy it! (and don't worry, there's a back side to it as well). Also: 76.
It's funny- now that i'm getting towards the home stretch here (as far as getting the final pages laid out, anyway), the more difficult some of these pages become. I'm referring here to the front pages, specifically; the main splash page, credits, table of contents, and so on. I've been getting a lot of help from Kevin Ross and Dean Engelhardt to steer me in the right direction, but it's still a bit of a struggle. Similarly, caption text is kicking my ass. Trying to come up with one line phrases that are appropriate to the image and don't sound silly or forced...it's trickier than you might think. The ToC seems to be coming along nicely...gonna be a biggun', that's for sure.
Pay no attention to it. Nothing to see here. Move on. I promise you'll never see it used again. Maybe.
Sorry for the lack of updates, but the holidays kinda put a crimp in time. I can report that Horror for the Holidays has been released, and should be available at your local bookstore...or you can order it on Amazon.com, or directly from Miskatonic River Press, of course! Cthulhu by Gaslight has been coming along nicely, and it's getting close to being done...well, until it gets reviewed and sent back for corrections, of course. 😛 To whet your appetite for Gaslight, i'm presenting here, for the first time, some of the artwork done by the esteemed artists for the book; Adam Denton, David Grilla, and John T. Snyder. To wit:
