Specifically, the Dark Adventure Radio Theater prop binder and a Miskatonic University T-Shirt. Oddly, I don’t really have any Miskatonic U stuff. Which is weird, honestly. The binder’s because they’ve switched over to a model where they send you a CD sleeve with the DART itself, plus all the props that they put into a DART, and put that all in a binder sheet. And I needed the prop binder because my DARTS are out of control. Once I get paper CD sleeves for the radio plays themselves, the consolidation of my DART collection will be a wonder to behold.
I may pick this up, if I get Christmas money that can be translated into HPLHS. Basically, the HPL Historical Society collected all of the orchestral music they use for their Dark Adventure Radio Theater shows and is now offering them in an album. I like it! If I ran a Call of Cthulhu game, I wouldn’t be waiting to pick it up.
This is an eldritch good deal, folks. I grabbed HERBERT WEST – REANIMATOR right away, when I saw this. ‘Course, I’m kind of out of other DARTs to buy at this point, but isn’t that sort of an endorsement right there?
I’m running out of DARTs to buy! Which is kind of alarming. On the other hand, I’m holding out for HERBERT WEST – REANIMATOR. The story itself is a little clunky sometimes, but I have high hopes for the radio play adaptation, as those clunky bits will likely dissolve utterly when actually dramatized with sound and everything. Again, here’s hoping.
That’s the Dark Adventure Radio Theater adaptation of The Rats In The Walls. The HPL HS is just giving away the mp3 for free, but it’s totally worth it anyway. I have my own copy, and they’re always fun to listen to. Lord knows I mention them often enough around here…
I’m mentioning it now because I just got a link for the MP3 for THE LURKING FEAR Dark Adventure Radio Theater program; the rest of the stuff comes via mail, but I can listen to the program tonight. I love these; the DARTs are fun to listen to and the props are awesome. If you ever decide to run a TTRPG session off of HP Lovecraft’s actual stories, the HPL Historical Society deliberately makes these props to be helpful for that. Eventually I’ll have the entire set…
Ordered the CD for The Dunwich Horror as usual, got sent the MP3. This is the HPL Historical Society’s usual good work; slowly but surely, I’m getting the entire Dark Adventure Radio Theater collection. I almost got this for the car ride down, but I ran out of time.
The HPL Historical Society’s “Bad Medicine” is a Dark Adventure Radio Theater anthology: “Dark Adventure Radio Theatre: Bad Medicine brings three classic tales of horror and medicine to life in a 1930s-style radio drama. Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar” and H.P. Lovecraft’s stories “Cool Air” and “The Picture in the House” are brought to life by a huge cast of professional actors, exciting sound effects and thrilling original music by Reber Clark.” They redid a little the Valdemar one for the DART, apparently; not much, but enough to make it fit the theme.
And if you’re wondering why not Herbert West: Reanimator — they’ve already done that one. Which I should get. I love these radio plays, after all.
