Innsmouth 32 | Meet The Cast #4 | The Students

Innsmouth 32, Innsmouth 32 Updates, Meet The Cast

This Miskatonic University trio has the misfortune to be on the bus hijacked by the bootleggers. Do you think they have what it takes to make it to the end of the movie?!? All three are shown in various rooms in the Gilman House hotel (the wallpaper in this joint has a geometric pattern, inspired a bit from another famous horror hotel). There’s some other fun nested in each pic; like the Athlete is entering is Room 428 (the same room mentioned in the Lovecraft’s tale).

Innsmouth 32 | Meet The Cast #3 | The Scholars

November 14th, 2019
Innsmouth 32, Innsmouth 32 Updates, Meet The Cast

This trio of Miskatonic University scholars, along with a few MU students, are on the bus that is hijacked by the Gangsters. They might just be the ones who can save the day when there are no more bullets to be found… As you can see on each of their character cards, there is a Key icon which represents their mythos power. Each has had some exposure to Lovecraftian horrors and this will allow them to banish some of the monstrosities that await in Innsmouth.

For those of you familiar with H.P. Lovecraft’s stories, the Aged Scholar above is a tribute to his Armitage character. According to a reliable source (wikipedia), while writing “The Dunwich Horror”, Lovecraft noted in a letter that he found himself “identifying with one of the characters (an aged scholar who finally combats the menace) toward the end”.

Also, that wonderful medallion shown above is one of the mythos items that can be found while exploring Innsmouth. If wielded by one of the Scholars, it is quite a powerful weapon against the things that hide in the shadows.

Innsmouth 32 | Meet The Cast #2 | The Locals

November 8th, 2019
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.

” . .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.
