Setting: Arkham, Massachusetts

About the City

Arkham is a city dating back to the 1800s. Its cityscape boasts a world famous Museum, College, Historic Buildings and a rich cultural history unlike any other. Maybe you’d like to visit the old Witch House for a ghost tour, or see Hangman’s Hill where over 100 executions were carried out. Modern Arkham still lives in the past. Things go on as they always have and all of the new “fangled” technologies, never seem to work just right.
