I plan on fielding some Frenchmen in Canada…just a few sent to raise an insurrection but who got caught up in supernatural problems.  If we can envision a French expedition to Ireland, Scotland or Wales, i don’t see too much of a stretch getting small groups of Frenchmen into Canada, New Orleans or the Caribbean.  Northstar has some decent French sailor packs and i think the Dracula’s America voudou cultists could make a fine unit for SB.  i think they only have a few anachronisms in their kit and a kitbashed flintlock pistol might be an easy fix for a six shooter.

US forces in Europe?  i could see a supernatural investigator group landing in Spain or France easy.  These guys are fighting a greater struggle and go where the fiends are.  someone read it in the stars…

Well… we have Europe (core book), Carpathians, Canada, Egypt, and now Italy.

I guess this game has had a great future since this thread was originally posted.

The reports of its death are greatly exaggerated  ;)

Look's like a good excuse to add a few Neapolitans to my collection  :D

So we have Italy and Egypt coming, any word on the possibilities for  South America, Danes/Swedes/Finns, Ireland and UK, West Indies, Greece/Ottoman Empire, or India for settings?

No word on any of these as yet, and probably not for some time if at all. Having said that, I have purchased a few Greeks just on the off chance  :D

Essentially, the game got a little tangled up in my employment with Osprey. It was the last project I did as an 'employee', and I wasn't sure if I would continue with the game afterwards. It took awhile, but Osprey convinced me, and I convinced them to recruit some other help, so now the game has quite a bright future!

Will any of these new volumes expand into a more RPG like treatment of plot, characterization of  recurring NPCs, and setting? I have yet to see even the first supplement yet to judge (I plan on purchasing a pdf soon), but I would really prefer some heavily fleshed out campaigns rather than just a slightly different version of non-refereed skirmish scenarios with some new monsters.  will any volume expand on the spells available to players?

I, for one, am very happy that the game is both continuing with you and that it has grown to the place where it will continue without you as well. I enjoyed Ash's contributions in Canada and I'm eager to see what you have cooked up for Egypt and what is waiting for us in Italy

I was looking at some Black Scorpion pirates today and thinking, "Silver Cutlass..." Am I crazy?
