Camp pulp adventure

Wish they did more original works like this, full of pulpy action, not super serious and clearly enjoys the Lovecraft material.

Choose your own adventure!

Another fun D.A.R.T adventure based on a Call of Cthulhu RPG campaign, this time with a fun “choose your own adventure” twist at the end. Four different endings to choose from and all of them suitably pulpy and/or dark. The acting is great as usual, the characters likeable and the plot suitably fast-paced and fun. Definitely worth a listen if you like their other stuff or have an interest in the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game.

A Good Adaption

A good version of the campaign, though they do miss out the small introductory scenes.

Such a cool idea, what a great story!

This is another departure from adapting straight-up Lovecraft stories. I've never played the Call of Cthulhu RPG but this episode made me want to try it out. The characters were so fun (love that they continue to bring back characters from other episodes). Loved the way the story progressed from one small investigation into strange murders to this globe trotting adventure to stop the end of the world. I thought the multiple different endings was a very cool choose-you-own-adventure idea, that I wouldn't want every episode to have but really liked as a one-off experience (especially since some were pretty dark). Hope for more like this from the HPLHS and Dark Adventure!

H.P Lovecraft Historical is the only to go!

I've listened to many different versions of H.P Lovecraft audio books, and the H.P. Lovecraft Historical is by far the best and most entertaining.

Disjointed but enjoyable

Far more narration than usual DART faire. The characters were a bit 2D. Still fun - but likely wouldn’t buy again.

SUPER DARK ADVENTER FUN

I've really enjoyed running this campaign again. And was delighted to find that the HP Lovecraft Historical Society had seen fit to create a radio play based on it! Did a really great job. I wish they had not skipped all of Egypt the first visit. I saw a comment about chapters being out of order. They are not. There are 3 alternate endings. have fun dot-dot-dot and drink your bubble pep

Dracula and Lovecraft, that's something different!

As always, Dark Adventure Radio Theater comes through with the goods in a big way!

Good stuff, again

It's good stuff, again. They really unfurl their sails and travel across a big canvas. It helps to read their notes about how the story is taken from the text of a RPG. It has four endings and so their explanation causes it to make sense to me.

Great performance!

I really love the collaboration between H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society and Chaosium stories. Nevertheless it would be nice if there was a hint in the book description that there are four different endings(not only on the stamp at the cover). When you’re listening to the audiobook for the first time, you have the feeling that the chapters are out of order which they’re not.

Not the best Dark Adventure Radio show

I’ve listened to half a dozen of the Dark adventures radio year shows. They are very well done in an authentic ‘40s style with cast, sound effects, campy narration and even commercials. And so far I’ve loved them all. Though I wouldn’t consider myself a huge H P Lovecraft fan, these are very well done and anyone who likes old school adventure will enjoy them. Unfortunately Brotherhood of the Beast is not up to the usual standards. The cast is too large, the story to rambling and it’s oddly less serious than the other shows. Perhaps it’s because this is not based directly on a Lovecraft story but rather on an RPG game. If you are familiar with the game, go for it. Otherwise I recommend sticking to the classic Dark Adventure Radio shows like Call of Cthulhu, At the Mountains of Madness, the Case of Charles Dexter Ward etc which are beyond excellent.
