New "Shadow Over Innsmouth" story told using Second Life characters

"Return to Innsmouth" is a new Lovecraftian story created by Catherine over at the Some Strangeness in the Proportion blog which combines text with illustrative screenshots from Second Life.  She got the idea after visiting a detailed sim of Innsmouth in Second Life, which prompted her to read H.P. Lovecraft's original story.
After visiting the sim I decided to read Lovecraft's "The Shadow Over Innsmouth." More than anything, the mention--right at the beginning of the story--of the "raids of the winter of '27-'28" caught my attention. Who were these agents that went on the raid to rid Innsmouth of its monsters? What's their story? What happened to the town after that? What happens when a good man follows orders that are immoral, unethical, corrupt? Enter Fred Mathis, who I grew quite fond of while writing this story. Poor bastard.
It's a clever idea and almost makes me want to join Second Life so I can visit Innsmouth. Below is another (semi NSFW) image from the story.
