Hudson & Brand, Inquiry Agents of the Obscure for 7th edition Call of Cthulhu™ is an official Cthulhu by Gaslight™ 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.

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 EmeraldThis House Is Haunted, and the stories of Sherlock Holmes, the 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.

The scenarios deal with dark fates, dark secrets, and sometimes unwinnable outcomes. Please be aware that some of the themes are quite mature and are suitable for adult gamers only

I bought the black and white book in the crowdfunding for 33.73 USD. And now they sell it for $ 27. Why?

My copy of Hudson and Brand came in the mail today, I ordered it off of RPGnow. It looks awesome, love the maps that look like they have creases from heavy use. I still wish I did not have cancel my pledge during that Kickstarter, it would have been worth if I could have afforded at the time. If you want an awesome setting for your players, I would suggest buying a copy, if you have not bought one as of yet. I also suggest getting the Hardcover Color Book (Premium Heavyweight) (8.5" x 11"), it's worth the price. The pages are beautiful and you can tell a lot of love and care went into creating this work of art.

I'm sorry but I'm not sure I'm positive what you're asking - are you talking about Lens of Darkness? Or just the PDFs above?

I'm asking about the PDFs above. I assume v. 5 is the most up to date one, but it's missing the "Thirteen" section of v. 4.

I'm just wondering what the differences are between them and whether there are more updates to come that would include the "Thirteen".

Basically, I want to know if there is going to be one complete definitive download for this product.

Hey - I'm not the amazing lead on this book, but I saw on Facebook that there were grapplings with how to make that a reality, but it is still in progress.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
