    There's a lot of very useful information on London specifically and England in general in this Call of Cthulhu supplement. I found the historic information interesting, and I think it will help me make a game more immersive if I get around to running it. However, I did find that the book tended to lean into the sort of Victorian penny dreadful kind of setting, in much the same way Chaosium's 1920s supplements tend to lean more toward a pulpy vibe. There seems to be less interest in Cosmic Horror There's a lot of very useful information on London specifically and England in general in this Call of Cthulhu supplement.

However, I did find that the book tended to lean into the sort of Victorian penny dreadful kind of setting, in much the same way Chaosium's 1920s supplements tend to lean more toward a pulpy vibe. There seems to be less interest in Cosmic Horror, existential dread, and mind shattering alienation, and more on monster hunting and ghost chasing. Even the two adventures feel more like something out of Bram Stoker than Lovecraft. Still, I think this will be a big help in future games I might set in the era.
