Description

Dark Adventure Radio Theatre: Masks of Nyarlathotep is an epic tale of globe-trotting adventure inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft, presented as a 1930s-style radio drama. Dark Adventure Radio Theatre presents the tale with an absurdly large cast of professional actors, exciting sound effects and thrilling original music by Troy Sterling Nies. 

Now, in partnership with Chaosium, we've adapted their most famed and beloved game supplement of all time -  Masks of Nyarlathotep - into a fully dramatized super episode of Dark Adventure Radio Theatre. And if you've never heard of or played the game - don't worry, you don't need to know anything about the game to enjoy this super-sized episode. The death of a dear old friend and an inquiry into a doomed archeological expedition spiral into a global investigation with dire repercussions. 

Can a handful of intrepid investigators make a stand against an insidious and bloodthirsty cult? Can a diabolical conspiracy be thwarted before a doomsday plan comes to fruition? Is there any hope for mankind against the machinations of an Elder God or will they meet only despair, death and madness?

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Shear Excellence

This was an absolute pleasure to listen to. The best of the H.P.L.H.S. audio plays yet. If you enjoy mystery, horror, adventure or lovecraft, you are in for a treat.

amazing!

Dark adventure radio theater do a masterful job adapting this story from their roleplaying campaign. The only down side is that there isn't more to listen to.

Great Lovecraftian style adaptation!

If you are looking for a narrated story by H.P. Lovecraft, skip this. HOWEVER.... if you enjoy his style of writing and are up for a bit of dark humor and frivolity, well then..., This is a perfectly done, over the top, '30's style radio play, commercials included. I didn't even catch how hilarious the commercials were until about the 2nd or 3rd one. After that, they were as much fun as the play. I love the use of dramatic musical overtones, old style sound effects, and the commercial breaks. Yes, the drama is a touch overly dramatic. That's purposeful. Take it as a vehicle used during radio plays to express things so you can see them with your ear. Please remember that even though this is definitely a legitimate Lovecraft Universe story, it does have a bit of tongue-in-cheek humor. I'm getting more of these. I absolutely loved this one.

most excellent!

I do love a really good radio play but this this takes me back well back to before I was but still!! remarkably done
if you play Call of Cthulhu and are familiar with masks of nyarlathotep the tantamount tour-de-force campaign, you'll love this. If you're playing through it still might be safe to listen to might give you some ideas. If you're running it! Cool beans to listen to this before or after and during. So much fun so so so much fun. If you don't know anything about any of those things, even if you don't know anything about HP Lovecraft, this is a fantastic tale of Adventure! Go for it just go for it.

Simply outstanding!

HPLHS, they set the benchmark on radio dramatizations and readings of HP Lovecraft's works. Outstanding

Excellent story!!!

Great story, awesome presentation. It was full of action and adventure. Gripping story I actually found myself tooth,g for the characters and really got into the story. Also, the story was paced well enough so you weren't always sure what wad going to happen and the commercials were hilarious.

good but not very Lovecraftian

while thos is a charming adventure story that goes a long way towards recapturing the feel of old radio dramas, it doesn't especially recapture the spirit of classical Lovecraftian fiction.

Fans of Lovecraft, this is for you!

Start to finish, I loved the odd mix of horror & tongue in cheek humor in this very well acted program. It’s done in the style of old radio dramas, complete with music, a cheesy narrator, & downright hilarious commercials you won’t want to skip.

Guy Noirlathotep

Fair warning: this is a silly, pulpy, radio-play style telling of a classic role playing module that is nominally Lovecraftian, but only in the same way a suburban strip-mall bar is an “Irish pub”, leaning heavily into the campy and cliche, and far and away from the authentic. Which can be fun! But if you want creeping horror, look elsewhere.

If you’re familiar with A Prairie Home Companion then you’ll pretty much know what you’re in for. If you’re familiar with Guy Noir then you know almost exactly.

This is well produced, well acted, generally well written. It however leans a bit much into the sins of the era it’s set in (the 20s) - racism, e.g. - even though it’s made in the present day and based on a role playing game from the 80s. It’s not as though they’re unfortunate relics of a classic text. And - perhaps I’m in the minority here - but the “commercials” are frequent, and unfunny.

There’s a movie - I forget its name - that was an almost perfect recreation of old, bad, low budget sci-fi. I found it briefly amusing... and then realized it was a bad, low budget sci fi movie. Does it matter if its awfulness is intentional?

This isn’t that. But you do sort of get the sense that with just one or two missteps, it could have been.

Classic pulp fiction with a lovecraftian twist

Honestly very surprised with the quality keeps true to old school radio shows and all I can say is even when something that should be annoying like the commercials that randomly occur are entertaining in there own right.
