Lovecraft in Second Life:

  • Innsmouth: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Innsmouth/14/245/13 A town right out of the story, “The Shadow over Innsmouth,” this early 1900s New England fishing town is an experience! Filled with detailed, stark imagery, loaded with many levels of hidden secrets and mysteries, this sim is definitely an alltime best of Second Life!
  • Arkham (and Kingsport): http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Arkham/128/90/45 Arkham, home to the prestigious Miskatonic University, and neighboring Kingsport…. Two sims named after towns from Lovecraft books: If you are looking for a place to live or do business, there are houses, storefronts and plots available for development.
  • Dunwich/October Nyghtshttp://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Dunwich/17/55/38 Neighboring Arkham and Kingsport, Dunwich is an adventure village where visitors go through and face zombie-like residents, giant rats, and threats as they explore and discover the mysteries of the village from HP Lovecraft’s “Dunwich Horror.” Also on site, the October Nyghts area includes haunted cemetery, spooky manor house, a story  night campfire and outdoor movie theater. The managers of this sim have really made a ghoulishly delightful experience, all the more fun for couples and groups to explore together!
