Arkham is a fictional town situated in Massachusetts. It is an integral part of the Lovecraft Country setting created by H. P. Lovecraft, and it is featured in many of his stories and those of other Cthulhu Mythos writers.
The main source of inspiration was the scale model recreation of Arkham by John Ott (http://www.ottgallery.com/WelcometoArkham.html).
I modeled the main buildings and props based on early century architecture and design. The city streets are based on the Arkham map found in the H.P.Lovecraft's Arkham Sourcebook for the Call of Cthulhu Roleplaying Game.
