A Peculiar Pentad
very book has a story, especially books within and about the
Lovecraftian Mythos.
n the case o 
 A Peculiar Pentad 
, that story goes back to the very frstbrainstorming session we ever had or
Super Genius Games 
. We were talking about how oten, in
Call of Cthulhu
scenarios, theinvestigators run across an obscure shop run by someone with knowledgethat is helpul in their current case but, once plundered or this specifctreasure, was never heard o or reerenced again. eally, we were joking abouthow plentiul these “obscure shops” are in the composite world created by allthese adventures.t would be useul, we realized, or anyone attempting to run anythinglonger than a one-off scenario—rom a short series o linked adventures toan ongoing campaign—to have a handul o businesses or the investigatorsto visit. laces that it would be useul to visit more than once, and wherethere was added beneft to be gained by becoming a regular customer.From that germ came the idea or the book you now hold—a collectiono occult-related businesses and their oten mysterious owners.
It’s Not What You Know, It’s Who You Know
, as a Keeper, you’re endeavoring to create a setting that eels like itfts into the world created by H.. Lovecrat and the other architects o the
Cthulhu Mythos 
, then it’s important or the dark, orgotten corners or your cities to hide a small collection o unassuming, unimpressive shopsand businesses that deal in curiosities and services that will be useul tothe investigators. Tey will need places to go to research ancient items,rare texts, long-dead languages, and creatures that no respectable academicsources would deign acknowledge. Tey will need to know the places wherepeople “like them” go to meet one another, trade or sell inormation, andoccasionally even make pacts to join orces in the fght against the thingsman was not meant to know.
