The City of Arkham
Lovecraft Country: Return to Arkham is set in
the city of Arkham as originally detailed by H.P. Lovecraft and as
codified by Chaosium in their H.P. Lovecraft's Arkham
supplement. (The same setting was also used in the recent board game,
Arkham Horror, produced by Fantasy Flight Games, with help from
Skotos and a license from Chaosium.)
By clicking on the image at the right you can see a
large map of the University district of Arkham, the setting of
Country: Arkham by Night game. Some of the activities of this
comic also occur in that region.
Seth enters Arkham at the Train Station
(across the river). He visits with Professor Newland at Atwood
Hall (the Science building) and then checks in at the Hotel
Miskatonic, on the edge of campus.
The Arkham Sanitarium, where Professor
Harding is staying, is on the far side of town, past the River
(explaining why Seth decides to take a room first). Seth's visit to a
graveyard takes him to the Hill Street Burying Ground. Blake
Street, named after author Robert Blake, is also off this map.
Lovecraft Country #1 was released under a cc by-nc-sa 2.5 license.
