あらすじ・解説

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.

Magnificent Production!

A big fan of HP Lovecraft Historical Society's audio book Lovecraft collection and decided to give Dark Adventure Radio Theatre a try. It is very different to the audio book as this is less of a classical horror toned story but a Call of Cthulhu play through style dramatization of one of the classical scenario.

Enjoyed it very much and started missing the old days when I can actually get together someone player to play TRPG.

A small set back is the fake advertisements is a bit too over the top and a tad too often. It sets the mood for a 1920/30's radio drama "style" but personally I find it breaking up the tempo of the story. (Also I have the lithium charged cold pop advertisement stuck in my head now.)

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.

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.

So much fun!

Loved it through and through! Now I just hope I can do the story the same sort of justice that this audiobook did when I run the campaign for my friends next month! Can't wait to see how the newest chapter on Peru solidifies the connection of the players to Jackson Elias!

Good performances. Uninspired story. Commercials.

The theatrical style and presentation are a welcome introduction to material as old as H.P. Lovecraft's original writings. The pulp style is novel and is a good fit. The story itself reminded me of an Indiana Jones adventure. I'm half-way through the recording and I'm not going to finish it and will request a refund after I'm done writing this.

I cannot stress how much I HATE the commercials. Whatever momentum which is built in any given scene comes to a screeching halt and hits a brick wall whenever an ad rolls. I enjoy the other work from group, of Lovecraft's other, more focused short stories. With the Masks of Nyarlathotep, it felt like the story just kept dragging on and on, interrupted by commercial after commercial.

The best way to listen to a Lovecraft book.

Absolutely brilliant. I can't wait to listen to more of their productions. I hope they do more modules like the horror on the orient express.

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.

Too much 21st Century, not enough 20th

I couldn't get into the yarn because the author kept undermining the suspension of disbelief by pouring too much of the early 21st century into the characterization of people supposedly from a century earlier. It was irritating to the point where I had to bail on the tale.

Great

A thoroughly entertaining romp, melodramatic, great performances and a cracking storyline. An old fashioned style radio drama that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

Pulpy geeky fun!

Absolutely great fun from start to finish! Who knew that a dramatisation of an RPG campaign would be so engaging to listen to rather than play?

The plot and acting run a very thin line between loving pastiche of old pulp stories and slightly silly, but almost always land on the right side. I particularly loved the fake adverts at the end of each chapter, adding a nice touch of light relief to the tension of the cliffhangers. I really want some Bubble Pep now!

The acting is largely great - deliberately cheesy in places and doing a great job of making the large cast of heroes likeable. Some of the British accents are all over the place, but only the bit-parts - I doubt non-Brits will notice or care.

If you have any interest in Lovecraft or the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game, or you just generally like fun, I’d definitely recommend giving this a listen.

Absolute trash

Love, Lovecraft stories but this isn't anything close to Lovecraft and has been butchered by mass injection of current politics and ideology.

A rare miss.

I'm a big fan of the HP Lovecraft Historical Society but this, this is the first negative review I've ever given to one of their works. Previously all their works have been pretty damn good attempts to recreate the early radio broadcasts, the script for this one, just doesn't seem to be as authentic, the minor injections of modern politics particularly grate. In short if you like HPLS's work then you might enjoy this but I would consider this as the last one you buy once you have the others because it's by far the least impressive, in script and performance quality.

Brilliant dog campaign adaptation

more please.

Hplhs are still making the best Lovecraft radio plays and props. It would be marvellous if they could adapt more Cal of Cthulhu campaigns.

This was brilliant, and an epic tale definitely worth listening to. I'd like to see a movie being made of this one day, either in period or even in modern-day with all its challenges...

A MUST for H.P. Lovecraft fans

This is a fantastic production of an original story based on the work of HP Lovecraft. Delivered in the form of an old-time radio serial, even the 'adverts' are inspired.

This is my favourite ever Audible purchase.

wonderful pulpy loviness

This is a wonderful production with a fantastically pulpy execution that evokes classic radio theatre. Even going as far as to create great advertising parodies. If you are a fan of this genre then Masks of Nyarlarhotep will have you hooked even more than a fleur de lis cigarette.

Gripping

Great cast and acting. Useful companion for keepers who wish to hear the story played out before embarking on the campaign.
