Innsmouth 32 | Meet The Cast #2 | The Locals

Innsmouth 32, Innsmouth 32 Updates, Meet The Cast

“Who are the people in your neighborhood? In your neighborhood? In your neighborho-od?”

The Locals were pulled directly out of Lovecraft’s story (so, they may seem a bit familiar to some of you). Appropriately, this trio has the “fish bones” icon. Behind the Bus Driver you can spy the old Marsh Refinery, the Old Captain is reaching for his bottle, and, what, exactly, is that “Marsh 32″ tonic the Shop Clerk is restocking? Watching over them all is the Night Clerk of the Gilman House (our bonus Lovecraft character); seems a bit like the bartender in The Shining, doesn’t he?

Innsmouth 32 | Monster Monday #2

July 30th, 2019
Innsmouth 32, Innsmouth 32 Updates, Meet The Cast

I think their predominant colour was a greyish-green, though they had white bellies. They were mostly shiny and slippery, but the ridges of their backs were scaly. Their forms vaguely suggested the anthropoid, while their heads were the heads of fish, with prodigious bulging eyes that never closed. At the sides of their necks were palpitating gills, and their long paws were webbed. They hopped irregularly, sometimes on two legs and sometimes on four. I was somehow glad that they had no more than four limbs.

Innsmouth 32 | Meet The Groom

Innsmouth 32, Innsmouth 32 Updates, Meet The Cast

” . .and one, who led the way, was clad in a ghoulishly humped black coat and striped trousers,
and had a man’s felt hat perched on the shapeless thing that answered for a head. . . .”

The Groom is just on of the terrors that await you in old Innsmouth town. He was inspired by that single line of text in H.P. Lovecraft’s original weird tale. Not the sort of guy you want to meet in a dark alley!

Read his full story here, in Backer Update #4.

Innsmouth 32 | Monster Monday #1

July 23rd, 2019
Innsmouth 32, Innsmouth 32 Updates, Meet The Cast

It’s Monster Monday in old Innsmouth, where we reveal one of the monsters found within our game and give you a little blurb about them. We start with the Elders of the Abyss. In Lovecraft’s Shadow Over Innsmouth, it is noted that the Innsmouth fishing industry went through a boom time. Fish everywhere! It is noted:

“As for business—the abundance of fish was certainly almost uncanny…”

Perhaps, beneath the waves, there was something driving those fish towards old Innsmouth Bay? Like the Elders of the Abyss, maybe?!?

Innsmouth 32 | Meet Lawrence

“Lawrence heard there was a new Lovecraft inspired board game on kickstarter this week.
He thought it would be just another Lovecraftian game and didn’t check it out. Lawrence was wrong.”

But who is this Lawrence? And what does he have to do with our story anyways?!?

In Lovecraft’s original weird tale, there is a mention of Cousin Lawrence, who is in the “permanent seclusion of a sanitarium at Canton”. There is, of course, more to his sad story, but I don’t want to give away the ending of Lovecraft’s story…

Suffice it to say, he’s come back home to Innsmouth…
