Welcome to Gaslight! Since you're here you must be wondering how this whole thing works. Let us start off by saying we're looking forward to having you at game and to helping you join us in the 1860s!

The first place to look is on our forums. You can register an account here which will give you access to our community of players and information that may be helpful in building your first character. Joining the forums also gives you access to the chat room.

If you're new to gaming, welcome! A good starting point might be to look at our world and then ask any questions you might have in the forums or chat. We'll do our best to give you the help you need! If you're coming here from another gaming or re-enactment community you may wish to visit our conversion primers to help you get acclimated.

Once you have an idea of what interests you, let us help you build your character and make connections to others in town. We have a dedicated group of Character Guides who will be happy to help your character come to life and to approve your character before gameplay. There are also many players who may want to give you a hand in creating your alternate identity.

As your concept takes shape you'll want to start preparing your costume. We have prepared costume and setting guides to help you put together clothing that will make you feel like part of Warrington. We don't expect perfectly accurate costuming, but your best attempt will be appreciated.

We look forward to seeing you in person on our Season 3 and 4 game weekends:
