The decaying town of Innsmouth, Massachusetts has an unhealthy reputation. Nearby citizens shun it. You won’t find it on any maps. And the denizens just don’t look right. They just don’t. Maybe it’s something in the water? Robert Loveless is trying to escape the lurking fear of insanity cursing his bloodline when his quest lures him to the town of Innsmouth.
As Loveless wanders the tumbledown streets past homes and buildings of departed grandeur, he uncovers the town’s awful past from a half-crazed old drunk named Zadok Allen. A shadow reaching out from before the dawn of history is haunting Innsmouth, and now that Loveless has learned the truth its denizens want him to stay there…forever.
