The Blasted Heath, West of Arkham is a build by me (MiaSnow Myriam) sponsored by a grant provided by LEA (Linden Endowment for the Arts). It opened today, October 1st, 2015! Go visit!!!
The Colour Out of Space is inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s story depicting The Blasted Heath, a region of grey desolation sprawling open to the sky. It is where an event known as the strange days occurred after a meteorite landed at the Gardner’s well.
What To Do @ The Blasted Heath:
At the Landing Point:
◕ Turn your sound up and prepare to get creeped out.
◕ Make sure to use region settings for estate time lighting.
◕ On the billboard, click the links for more H.P. Lovecraft. Look at photos and read info about him. Listen to the story or read it while you look around.
◕ Grab a free apple, but prepare for “sore disappointment, for of all that gorgeous array of specious lusciousness not one single jot [is] fit to eat. Into the fine flavour of the …apples [has] crept a stealthy bitterness and sickishness, so that even the smallest bites [induce] a lasting disgust.”
◕ Check out the LEA (Linden Endowment for the Arts) Kiosk and find more fine exhibitions!
At the Well:
◕ Trick a friend into getting trapped in the dark hole where the meteorite fell near the well. If they panic, just tell them to wait it out and the spell of the deep will release them.
◕ Past the well, follow the narrow path into the reservoir water and stargaze on the rock with a friend.
In Gardner’s Place:
◕ Pick up some dollarbies! Framed photos of H.P. Lovecraft, books, & a copy of The Arkham Post.
◕ Sit next to Nabby Gardner on the sofa, if you dare!
◕ Click the radio for a link to listen to the story on YouTube.
◕ Click the TV for a link to an H.P. Lovecraft documentary.
Thank you so much LEA, for awarding me the opportunity to build this!! ❤ ❤ ❤
