Just a short history of how it all came together!
The Innsmouth sim was created via inspiration from the writings of a prominent horror fiction writer named Howard Phillips Lovecraft. He is considered the “Grandfather of Cosmic Horror and Weird Fiction”, and inspired literally all horror, and many fantasy and science fiction authors during and since his time. The Shadows over Innsmouth, written in 1931, is what this great sim was modeled after. A work of the heart, Innsmouth in Second Life was originally owned and founded by Darmin Darkes. The sim was actually born in Second Life on August 20th, HP Lovecraft’s birthday 10 years ago, and this is Innsmouth’s 10th Anniversary in Second Life. This year there is going to be a huge celebration.
The sim’s current owner, Arik Metzger (AriktheRed), had started a fundraiser to save the sim in 2015. He did this by creating a festival for Lovecraft and became the founder/coordinator of the renowned Lovecraft Festivals of Second Life (LoveFest), a huge fan of Lovecraft, the “Save Innsmouth” campaign raised enough to be able to purchase the sim and save it when the former owners could no longer keep it going.

Recently added, the Miskatonic University to Innsmouth and it will be the landing point for the event! During the event we will hope to see the Miskatonic Cheer Squad giving us greeting and cheers through the week!
