The dog is a peasant. The cat is a gentleman.

Never heard of it, please expand.

Penny Dreadful is Victorian Gothic and is a mash up of Dracula, The Picture of Dorian Grey, Frankenstein with a leavening of supernatural devilry.

Supposed to be a TV sequel; Penny Dreadful - City of Angels in the offing.

The phrase 'penny dreadfu'l. 'The expression is American and came into use in the late 19th century as a perjorative term for the numerous cheap crime magazines that purveyed poorly written and hackneyed storylines.'

Just heard on one of the Podcasts I listen to that there is an official, FREE, Carnival Row RPG.  Written by the Carnival Row creator, Travis Beacham, it uses the "Cypher System by Monte Cook Games and the Cypher System Rulebook is required to play".

https://www.enworld.org/threads/free-carnival-row-rpg-from-nerdist-monte-cook-games.667255/
https://nerdist.com/article/carnival-row-rpg-download-free/

Direct link to the rules: https://nerdist.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/Carnival-Row-RPG.pdf

I've not seen the show yet, so only skimmed through the PDF to avoid potential spoilers, but it's very pretty with atmospheric art and a map of the world. 

Apart from some character generation stuff and the sample characters at the end it seems mostly rules-free background information of the world and the city of Burgue.

Cheers!
