“Innsmouth? Well, it’s a queer kind of a town down at the mouth of the Manuxet. Used to be almost a city—quite a port before the War of 1812—but all gone to pieces in the last hundred years or so... And why is everybody so down on Innsmouth? Well, young fellow, you mustn’t take too much stock in what people around here say... Some of the stories would make you laugh—about old Captain Marsh driving bargains with the devil and bringing imps out of hell to live in Innsmouth..."

Welcome to Innsmouth!  Rumors have long swirled around the place, ever since a plague is said to have carried off so many of the town's residents in the 1840s.  Fallen into disrepair and decay, most locals shun the town and its unwholesome-looking inhabitant.  We've elected to brave Joe Sargents' bus and dive deep into the mysteries and dangerous secrets that, dare we say, cast a shadow over the place.

This issue includes the following eighteen articles:

  • Shadows of Polynesia: Obed Marsh and his crew brought many things back from that island east of Tahiti...
  • Locations in Greater Innsmouth: Three new locations for Innsmouth.
  • The Wreck of the Elizabeth Wright: A new location outside of Innsmouth with connection to the town.
  • Innsmouth’s Burying Grounds: A deep examination of the many cemeteries in and near Innsmouth.
  • On the name “Dagon”: Where did this name come from?  Why did Obed Marsh use it?  What does that imply?
  • “The marine abyss beyond Devil Reef”: Bathography versus Lovecraft!
  • Edward Morse: A real-world scholar who might be of interest to your investigators.
  • The Isle of Shoals and Other Innsmouth Inspiration: Real-world places that have some parallel to Innsmouth - the Isles of Shoals, Matinicus Island and the Malaga Island community.
  • The Sacred Cod: Why is there a carved fish idol in the Massachusetts State House?
  • The Hymnal of the Esoteric Order of Dagon: A new tome extoling the greatest of Innsmouth's new faith.
  • The Ponape Scripture: An in-depth exporation of this tome of occult oceanic lore created by Lin Carter.
  • The Feejee Mermaid: P.T. Barnum's dubious mummified "mermaid"; real-world history and occult (and Mythos) options.
  • Innsmouth Curios: 8 Weird artifacts investigators can discover.
  • Innsmouth Gold: All about Innsmouth's most notable export.
  • Cancelled Innsmouth Books: A discussion of two cancelled books Chaosium was once planning related to Innsmouth - the Innsmouth Horror and Children of the Deep.
  • A Guide to Newburyport: An extended description of the town that inspired Innsmouth and how you can use it in your Lovecraft Country games.
  • “Drawn from the Water”: A Kingsport artist has gone missing and the investigators must follow his trail.  Dark secrets lurk in the waters just off shore...
  • Annotated list of Innsmouth scenarios: Notes for the Keeper on all 14 of the Innsmouth-connected scenarios that we can locate in Lovecraft Country as well as a list of every Deep One scenario we can find.

Same as Erik B, I'm keen to have print form of Issue 2. Love the 0, 1 and 3 issues. They're amongst the best examples of RPG fluff I've come across in 30 years of gaming. Hope to be able to add this to my physical shelf too.

Hi there! Nice to see issue two out again! But what ever happened to the possibility of buying it in print form? I am not interested in the PDF version, as I am a collector.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
