"The Brotherhood calls forth their gods and they answer. Mankind is given the choice to join them, or perish."
Dark Adventure Radio Theatre: The Brotherhood of the Beast 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 the largest cast of professional actors, exciting sound effects and thrilling original music by Troy Sterling Nies!
Like many Lovecraft fans, the crew at HPLHS played Chaosium's celebrated role playing game Call of Cthulhu®. Now, with the permission of Chaosium, they have adapted one of their most thrilling game supplements — Keith Herber's "The Fungi From Yuggoth" — into a fully dramatized 3 disc super episode of Dark Adventure Radio Theatre.
Synopsis: A consultation in a Boston child-murder case leads Professor Nathaniel Ward and his adventurous colleague Charlie Tower into an investigation of a group called The Brotherhood of the Beast. They follow a trail which takes them across the world as they struggle valiantly to thwart the plans of a doomsday cult insidiously plotting the demise of mankind. Can the Brotherhood be stopped, or has an ancient prophecy accurately foretold the end of days?
The Brotherhood of the Beast is an epic adventure, filling three CDs. Inspired by the game upon which it is based, this episode features four different endings! Follow the plan of your favorite character first, and then see how the others work out. All endings are included, and like all Dark Adventure episodes, the CD version includes a collection of props to enhance your listening experience. They include:
- an article from the Boston Globe about the child murders
- a very strange horoscope
- an urgent telegram from Budapest
- a brochure for a factory tour of a very strange facility
All of these great extras are complemented by the fantastic artwork of illustrator Darrell Tutchton in the style you've come to know and love from other episodes of Dark Adventure Radio Theatre.
