    Wouldn’t this make more sense as a Wraith supplement?

      You can definitely use it as one! It actually works well as a supplement for any WoD game.

          Oh, this looks like fun! Will it have a great deal that's useful for classic Orpheus, do we suppose?

            Really interesting stuff!

              Don't know the WoD rules, but will the book also be usefull for a Chronicle of Darkness...chronicle?

                Probably be ok for fluff inspiration, but obviously not going to do anything for you in mechanics.

                  Oh, also it's been funded!

                  And achieved its first Stretch Goal at $30k, an ST screen! Next up at $36k, it's going to get the Paranormal Investigator’s Toolkit companion book. Promised to include "More gear, additional Merits and Flaws, and optional systems will be created and released in a supplemental PDF, which will be added to the rewards list of all backers receiving the World of Darkness: Ghost Hunters PDF."

                    I'd say so, yes. There's a lot of setting material in this book, suitable for any group of mortals regardless of the game line.

                      Alright, $36k was reached. So we are getting the Paranormal Investigator's Toolkit. $40k is expanding the PIT, and $43k is getting a new supplement "Hunting Monsters"...which is about paranormal investigators taking on non-ghost supernaturals!

                        How about a conversion guide to Chronicles of Darkness as a new Stretch Goal? 😅

                        My Chronicles of Darkness campaign is also about a returning serial killer, who possesses people etc., so I would really love to use the material...
                        (Especially since the Chronicles of Darkness mechanics for Ghosts and „Host Jumps“ are very complicated and hard to understand, in my opinion. So I‘m looking for an alternative or shortcut.)

                          That'd be cool! I'm planning on a C:tL/Geist chronicle where the idea is the players were paranormal researchers who discovered too late that "Elijah Jenkins" is a fake ghost, because he's still alive...but the reports of supernatural crap were real, because he's a wily old Privateer who uses spookshows as a way to throw up chaff (and yes, I chose that name very deliberately). Having guidelines, especially minor conversions, for ghost research, would be a godsend.

                              So I am not entirely sure yet on this book, leading to me to bookmark it so I can check back later when more updates have come out. My delay is that pure ghost hunting is not so much my interest, as say it having been a paranormal investigators sourcebook and such. If that had been the case I probably would have jumped very quickly on it. The fact that they do release the chapters does make it easier though for me to check if it is for me so I am very much glad about that.

                              That said, I'm actually really curious as to what sorcerous and psychic powers are gonna be described in the book. Mostly as I want to bring those powers into the 20th Anniversary WOD.
