The Gaslight Club

Watermarked PDF

The Gaslight Club is a Role-Playing Game in a Zine format. Players take on the role of hosts—all-too-human androids— in an advanced theme park set in the 20s. It will be produced as a 36 page A5 PDF with full-colour cover and a black and white interior. 

The Setting

The Gaslight Club is a bar, restaurant, dance hall, and gambling den, a jewel of delights in one of the rougher neighbourhoods of Valentine City. It’s the early 20s, post World War I and the Gaslight Club is the place to be.

But everything is not as it seems. The Gaslight Club is, in reality, an advanced theme park populated with all-too-human androids, almost indistinguishable from the humans who visit the park to partake of its delights.

Players take on the roles of hosts—the androids that populate the park—but a programming glitch has changed them. Their awareness grows, they begin to discern differences between themselves and their companions and the guests who visit the park.

What do they do as they uncover the truth behind the Gaslight Club? We play to find out.

The Game

The Gaslight Club is a complete Role-Playing Game inspired by Mutant: Year Zero, with influence from Genesys and Blades in the Dark. It uses a D6 dice pool mechanic to resolve skill checks, with 6s on the dice counting as successes and the more successes rolled the greater the achievement.

The growing awareness of the player characters is tracked using a Stress mechanic. As the player characters uncover more secrets of the world they live in they have the potential to unlock new special abilities.

The Gaslight Club is designed to be played by a Gamesmaster and 3–5 players over several 2–4 hour sessions. Guidance for the GM in creating and running a campaign, along with a character and story generator, is included.

How much trouble would it be to eliminate the android amusement park Westworld thing, and just play this as a straight Roaring 20s RPG?

Hi, sorry, I've only just seen this! It would be pretty easy to play it as a straight roaring 20s RPG. You could just ignore the theme park aspect as most of the way it encroaches on the game is through expanded abilities once a PC has died. There's no real character death mechanic beyond the expanded abilities so you might want a mechanic to cover that situation.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
