Deleted Scenes

Author's Note . I initially framed Winter Tide as a "fictionalized history" being written by a modern professor at Miskatonic. I cut this, both because I didn't need to make my divergences from Lovecraftian canon quite that explicit, and because I didn't want to tie myself to a specific timeline.

The Innsmouth Legacy series plays chicken with history. At some point the existence of a little extra geography in Massachusetts, and a few extra human sub-species, will push us out of secret history and into alternate history. I'm having fun seeing how long that takes, and this scene fell prey to my suspicion that it'll happen before the turn of the 21st century.
