After all the recent fuzz about my virtual identity, I decided to take a small break from thinking of it all and just enjoy SL for what it also can be. I decided to venture out exploring – I went to Innsmouth. Now Innsmouth may not normally be the first choice for a vacation spot but I’ve promised a friend to go there for quite a while now so it was about time. Now this friend – he isn’t a SL resident (yet) so let’s call him the philosopher – knows everything about H.P. Lovecraft, the man who wrote the short story ‘The Shadow over Innsmouth’ that brought the town to life. The philosopher has read everything H.P. Lovecraft has ever written – including all his letters! – and he was curious to see what Innsmouth looked like in SL so I promised to take lot of pictures.

Now, Innsmouth lies at the coast in New England and has some dreadful weather with rain and fog so I got some new clothes before heading up there. Got out my favourite jeans and boots and then added a new coat, a tank top and a scarf and some gloves to keep warm.

What I’m wearing:

  • Jeans: Ripped78s (Dark Warm Blue) – by Nena Janus for *League*
  • Boots: Docs (8 hole F Black) – by by Gospel Voom for Gos
  • Stockings: Opaque Yellow Amortentia Stockings – by Allegory Malaprop for Schadenfreude
  • Tank top: Intrinsic tank (bk. charcoal) – by Janie Marlowe for Jane
  • Coat: Wool plaid coat – by Dolce Blackflag for Pixel Dolls
  • Scarf: Loop de lop scarf (pr. lilac) – by Janie Marlowe for Jane
  • Gloves: Sheepskin Mittens (purple) – by Nena Janus for *League*

And then I was ready to venture into the (almost) desolated town of Innsmouth…

When you arrive in Innsmouth you are given notecards. One with a general introduction, an overview of the story and some info from Wikipedia – this note also includes Windlight settings. These makes the place look amazing – check the picture above! However, for me it got to dark to navigate around when using these setting and the appropriate time of day so I changed that to be able to see.

The other three notecards contain the entire short story ‘The Shadow over Innsmouth’ by H.P. Lovecraft.

In one of the buildings in the center of town, there are a small shop selling various clothes to use when roleplaying in this area – as well as The Necronomicon (very cheap!). Probably not a good idea to buy this book …! I at least hurried away when I saw it!

Enjoy your trip to Innsmouth! Remember to bring warm clothes and solid boots!
