Lord Curton's Gentlemen's Hunting Club is an invitation-only society for members of the peerage who wish to exercise their divinely-granted right to hunt whatever game they wish, including the most dangerous game. Their numbers have never been large, but then that is the price one pays for exclusivity. Good day to you!

News

August 2010
  • In a private ceremony, Duke D'oeuvre assumes the title of Archduke, to better reflect his increasing power and dominion. The new Archduke is said to be looking forward to exercising both his new and old powers with increased scope, including carpe noctem, fiat tenebris, droit de siegneur, lex talionis, ipse dixit, ipsissima verba, et cetera, ad absurdum, et al.
July 2010
  • Duke D'oeuvre is the running mate of Misanthropy in the 2010 Mayoral Election.
    • In a surprising result for onlookers, Misanthropy steps down to take the Deputy Mayor position, naming his more charismatic comrade as Mayor— said conniver then proceeds to hand the Mayoralty to Jorm and declares himself Mayor of Harmanity. All in all, a highly successful campaign!
March 2010
  • Good heavens, is it that time already? Time for a bit of a spruce-up, methinks.

(*Or maybe more, we didn't keep very good count on account of the high-quality refreshments. Mmm.)
Intervening time
  • Duke D'oeuvre is busy, his secretary is lazy and yet somehow is elevated to the nobility, and nobody updates the news. This may be fixed. Also, some other enterprises are worked on.
September 2008
  • After wishing Uncle Zeddie a fond farewell (minus fanfare) and sharing a few drinks with him and fellow bar patrons, the Club's members have set off once more for parts as yet un-revealed.
August 2008
  • The club president, Duke D'oeuvre, and his secretary, Miss Amber "Waves of" Pain, have appeared in a recent propaganda film by Josh Clark of Team Xtreme[sic], with Miss Pain performing in a leading role. While we must deplore their furthering the "zombie" myth, we applaud their efforts to show we social reformers in a more positive light. Bravo, Team Xtreme[sic]!

History

Originally formed by Mortimer Curton and some of his closest friends and associates, the Club has continued its existence through two world wars and numerous restrictions and limitations being placed upon the practice of hunting. Specifics as to membership and activities are vague, but the club was known to meet irregularly in Malton at Curton Mansion. After the outbreak in Malton and the subsequent disappearance of Aleister Curton, no club members were known to operate in the city until the re-emergence of Duke D'oeuvre and Lord Thistlewick in the vicinity of Lockettside.

Organisation

As there is no known means of communication with the world outside Malton, and given the mysterious absence of a number of members, the current club organisation is as follows.
