The Miskatonic Society
The Current Purpose of The Miskatonic Society
The Society has evolved from a gentleman’s club for Miskatonic professors to a full-fledged organization for men and women that investigates the esoteric. The Society’s main goal is to reach the dark truths of the origin of the occult and the supernatural by researching the past, going into the field to uncover facts, and delving into the psyche of man.
Finding, documenting and collecting items of power is the main task the Society has taken on in recent years. Some are stored at Dewitt House, but many are housed at Miskatonic University Exhibit Museum and Miskatonic University Library. The Society also acts as private investigators, looking into mysterious and often dangerous happenings. They take those cases that are dismissed by local law enforcement as hoaxes or misunderstandings.
Members are free to talk to each other about their experiences within the confines of the Dewitt House walls. Making any discovered knowledge public is highly discouraged, and is dangerous to one’s reputation in the Society, as well as with the university and Arkham itself. The Society protects its members, and at the same time, protects itself from its members.
