Space 1889: Descartes Club

Page history last edited by Ben 8 years, 10 months ago

The Club

An affiliated chapter of The British Association for the Advancement of Science devoted to the highest studies into modern philosophy.

 

The Club is headed by Professor George Croom Robertson and membership is by invitation by Prof Robertson. The Club's purpose is to bring together the greatest thinkers in Britain.

 

The Club is a front however (as a quick look at the membership list will reveal). In fact, it serves as a way to bring together the greatest adventurers in Britain. It's true purpose is to gather (and hence preserve) the world's artefacts, wonders and knowledge. (It also makes use of the member's singular abilities to right wrongs.)

 

The club consists of two tiers, informally. The outer tier are the adventurers, who travel the world tracking down its wonders. The outer tier includes the PCs and about half a dozen other adventurers. The members of the inner tier are responsible for sending the adventurers out on missions.
