Miskatonic West, a web series inspired by Lovecraft

Now on Kickstarter:

Miskatonic West follows the exploits of Sousaku Kaos, the head of Miskatonic’s biology department, and his band of intrepid students as they pull the curtain back on a world of monsters, magic and mystery inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft. Helping the LAPD with “cases of interest,” Kaos and his students must uncover a plot to awaken Dagon, the ancient ocean god, by the Esoteric Cult of Dagon, before it and an army of deep ones invade the West Coast.

I’m all for this sort of thing in theory, but… Miskatonic University is located in Arkham, and Arkham is located in Lovecraft Country in New England, that’s just the way it is, and there’s no discussion about it. Putting it in Southern California feels wrong, and it feels wrong in a non-Lovecraftian way. Even if it’s “Miskatonic West.”

But good luck to the creators of this.
