    Hi there. I was one of the writers on Haunted West and have a finished manuscript for Blades of New York, a Forged in the Dark game set in the “Gangs of New York” era. I’ve run it at Gen Con (and will again this year) and for folks from/affiliated with Evil Hat. I assure you that there IS interest in a strictly historical game with those themes. Hit me up if you’d like to chat about the subject.

      You don’t have any ideas what happened to the Blades reskin set in Elizabethan London (I think it was called Coneycatchers) do you ? That always intrigued me (19thC NY would also be great)
