Arkham has changed. In the early 19th century the town was rife with occultism and supernatural disasters. Mayor David Torrence began a massive redesign and reconstruction of the city, as well as a PR campaign to discourage the sinister rumors and reputation of the city. After returning home from the second World War young men began coming to New Arkham either for jobs in constructing and rebuilding the city, or to take advantage of the new, state-of-the-art facilities at Miskatonic University. The city has even been officially renamed “New Arkham”.

Old Arkham, the part of the city south of the Miskatonic River, remains largely unchanged, except for most of the Miskatonic University facilities, which have been moved to the northern area of the city. Everything built during Torrence’s restoration of Arkham has an Art Deco theme, as Torrence felt it would complement the Victorian Gothic style of the old Arkham, but was modern enough to symbolize a new era for the city. In fact, Torrence’s vision for New Arkham has been credited as a major influence on the resurgence of the Art Deco style in the mid-1900s.

Although it is still in its infancy, New Arkham has already been hailed as the next New York City, and hopes are high for the growing city. However, even in the new parts of the city, the old evil still bubbles just under the surface, waiting for its chance to break free.
