Can characters stop on a gaslight hex?

We played recently, and agreed they could, by analogy to the manhole hexes which the rules describe as places where the characters stop next to the hole.

However, reading through some of the posts on this forum about Miss Stealthy, it sounds like gaslight (and garden) hexes are obstacles.

Many thanks.

Re: Gaslight Hex
No, gaslight hexes have a dark background (like houses and gardens, for example), so they can't be moved through by normal characters. Miss Stealthy can move through them but not stop on them.

Re: Gaslight Hex
No, you cannot stop on a gaslight hex. Gaslight hexes are dark grey (as opposed to light grey) and are obstacles. One must go around a gaslight hex and must not cross them either (except by special movement - eg. Miss Stealthy).

Re: Gaslight Hex
See the last 2 sentences on page 17 of the rules. Light gray = street and manhole hexes. The other buildings cannot be crossed except by Miss Stealthy.

Re: Gaslight Hex
One quick note. There is a difference between the 1st edition and the 2nd edition. On the 1st edition, one of the gaslight hexes did not have a dark gray background. This would imply it was able to be passed through, but this was merely a mistake. Gaslights can only be passed through by Miss Stealthy.

The background of this gaslight was fixed in the 2nd edition to make it more consistent/clear.
