Hudson & Brand, Inquiry Agents of the Obscure
Hudson & Brand
The first in Stygian Fox's 'Safe House' series for 7th edition Call of Cthulhu™, Hudson & Brand, Inquiry Agents of the Obscure is an official Cthulhu by Gaslight™ consulting detective agency in the style of extravagant freelancers, such as may be found in the stories of the great Sherlock Holmes or Hercule Poirot. However, instead of being a source for the Investigators to plumb for information whenever the situation gets too tough, or if they need a nudge in the right direction, it is somewhere they can actually inherit, utilise in their own investigations, or use as a safe haven from the outré horrors of the outside world. It is a starting platform, if you will, for adventures into the dark and fog-shrouded streets of Mythos-infested London.
Taking its inspirational cues from The Murders at the Rue Morgue, A Study in Emerald, This House Is Haunted, and the stories of Sherlock Holmes, this hardback book takes a mature look at the horror of human nature in the capitol of empire and its ability to turn a blind eye to the evil reaches of the Old Ones and their minions.
