Innsmouth Chart Preview

I'm still working on my collection of paper props for the raid on Innsmouth, but I thought you might find this preview entertaining. This is an early version of the navigational charts used by the government forces the night of the raid, detailing the routes and objectives of the combined Navy and Coast Guard ships.

I was surprised to learn that the mouth of the bay leading to the fictional Innsmouth actually does have a reef that corresponds to "Devil's Reef". Even more interesting is that there's a perfect location for the Deep One city of Y'ha-nthlei, a deep underwater canyon at the foot of a towering sea mount, in the real world.
