Innsmouth Island is a region in Farovia. It is the only Island location in the Eldritch Islands region. (Oddly it is Eldritch Islands plural even though there is only the one for now). It was first released October 18, 2018, and is the 61st island released in FW (39th in Farovia).
The entire Eldritch Island story was written by Lucy Snyder (player and author) and the art done by Zie Fauzi is based on Lovecraftian themed artwork Lovcraftian search.
NOTE: Its travel location number is 63, NOT 61, as it was released just prior to the 2 new Roperian Garbage Patch locations with the change in plans to release it for the Halloween time.
Description: Innsmouth Island is in a mysterious and difficult-to-locate part of Farovia. The town of Innsmouth resembles a run-down New England fishing village. It would be picturesque if it weren’t so creepy. The island is frequently covered in thick fog, and strange things seem to be moving in the mist and shadows...

Unlocking Innsmouth Island
You must either complete The Story of the Ten Year Storm or pay 250 RLC to unlock The Story of Eldritch Islands Adventure (if you pay the 250 RLC make sure you are unlocking Eldritch not TYS). Then you can progress through the Eldritch Islands adventure:
- Catch the Harbinger Fish in Waterport. You may have to use Liquid Gold.
- Talk to Earl, purchase the Lovecraft boat and the Eldritch pole at WaterPort.

How to Play
Following the story line will eventually lead to catching the Level 55 Asenath Fish. This will likely take a little while as you will need to progress through the first pole and half way through the second in order to catch that fish. In the meantime can perform pole quests as normal.
The The Story of Eldritch Islands Adventure will only get you to Chapter 10 of 18 after having caught the Mother Hydra Fish. The story line remains unfinished and will be continued in an as yet unreleased new Island location.
There is a game mechanic called Sanity that will limit how long you can fish there. Deckhand trips, DH Vouchers and Crew trips does not impact Sanity. Auto-Fish seems to not affect Sanity.
Need confirm whether night fishing trips affect Sanity
You risk the chance of awakening on a random beach, if you fish with 0% sanity. Plus, you’ll have to regain at least half your sanity to voyage back to Innsmouth Island. Make sure you stock up on Crazy Pills before you try fishing at this horrifying place! Crew trips and deckhand checks do not count towards your sanity.
Note: if you go below 0% Sanity, not only will you find yourself transported to a different Island (likely in Wahwahport) and needing to travel back, but this will also cost you Gold. With the following message received:
These baby fish are very soothing. Soon you’ll be able to face the terror of Innsmouth Island again.
OH NO! The horror was too much for you. You’ve awakened on the sweet sugar sand of Wahwahport, surrounded by concerned onlookers. You can’t remember how you got here, and you lost 29,540 gold. And you really don’t feel well at all.
You’ll have to fish here until you get at least half your sanity back. Stock up on Crazy Pills before fishing at Innsmouth Island again!
You can lose Sanity by fishing on Innsmouth Island. You can gain sanity by fishing in Waterport, fishing in Wahwahport (regains twice as fast), slowly over time (~30%/hr), or taking a Crazy Pill. For more info and strategy, please see Sanity.
You will be unable to travel to Innsmouth Island so long as your Sanity is in the Red. Which is anything less than 50%. You will still be able to see your Sanity percentage regardless of what Island you are at until your Sanity is totally filled by reaching 100%. At which point the Sanity will no longer display unless you are back in Innsmouth Island.
As mentioned in the above How to Play section, this story line leaves off unfinished, with the remaining part of the story needing to be done in a future Island location. It is anticipated this story will pick up in the future Claustro Cave.
