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?

I initially balked at the price, then broke down and finally bought it by reasoning that it was a fair price for 7 hours of entertainment. It was well worth it! The voice actors were excellent, the adaptation of the campaign was fantastic, and the pacing remained consistently good. The fake vintage ads were an amusing touch — half expected Nyarlahotep to break in and start marketing an amazing discount on his world-renowned sell-your-soul-for-power offer. It would have been less disturbing than the radium advertisements. :)
I can’t even imagine the amount of time and effort that went into this production, but I would love for you to release adaptations of other epic-length campaigns like this! Horror On The Orient Express might make a good candidate.
Again, really, REALLY excellent stuff! Recommended for Call of Cthulhu fans. I’m already listening to it again — can’t get enough. Thank you once more for this superb production!
