Campaign of the Month: November 2010
Cthulhu Supremus Est
A considerably younger town that neighboring Kingsport, colonials settled the Arkham area first in the late seventeenth century. They were liberal thinkers fleeing the oppressive Congregationalists of Salem and Boston. Led by such educated men as Jeremiah Armitage, Jabel Whateley, Tristram Curwen, and Abel Peabody, these earliest settlers laid out the first streets on the slopes of what is now known as French Hill.
Although the town’s fortunes declined after the Great War, the new construction of apartment buildings, university buildings, and filling stations attest to the general prosperity. Nearly 50% of Arkham families own at least one automobile, and merchants complain about those who park their machines in front of their shops all day.
