Hudson and Brand
Hudson & Brand is a consulting detective agency in the style of the extravagant freelancers such as may be found in the stories of the great Sherlock Holmes or Hercule Poirot. The agency’s main goal is to protect Londoners from macabre and devious evils prowling ever just out of sight. They pursue dark truths regarding the supernatural by researching the past, going into the field, delving into the psyche of man, and confronting the horrors of the terrible evil only hinted at in the most dark and blasphemous tomes.
In game terms, Hudson & Brand is a Call of Cthulhu Semi-Organized Campaign set in Gaslight era. It is, very loosely, a prequel of the Miskatonic Society, another SOP that takes place in the 1920s.
More information on the Semi-Organized Play Concept and Call of Cthulhu is available at the following links:
Much of London, and even the surrounding countryside, will be featured in this campaign. However, we wanted to call our a few locations that will likely be recurring throughout the season.
33 Golden Square
The lodgings at 33 Golden Square are in SoHo, near to the very heart of the capital of the most modern and prosperous empire that the world has seen to date. Fashionable without being ostentatious, it is well-sited for transportation, culture, and all the many comforts that a gentleman living in London might desire.
With Captain Hudson and Mr. Brand’s sudden absence, the remaining members of the Agency now use 33 Golden Square as a meeting house.
The Egyptian Club
The Egyptian Club is a by-invitation-only men’s social club that has always had a reputation for attracting those with esoteric interests.
The British Museum
The British Museum, located in the Bloomsbury area of London, in the United Kingdom, is a public institution dedicated to human history, art and culture. Its permanent collection among the largest and most comprehensive in existence. It is the first national public museum in the world.
In 1882, the museum was involved in the establishment of the independent Egypt Exploration Fund, the first British body to carry out research in Egypt.
