Part 2 :: A Murder Most Mysterious

Podcast cover
Read more

Previously - The denizens of Big Momma's boarding house were shaken from their sleep by a shrill scream and ghastly news. A police officer had come calling with questions about their housemate, Hannah Pickering, who had been found dead - the result of a savage attack. But the scream that woke them was that of the kindly Ma, who, while helping the officer, was struck by own tenant: Father Grandfather. The elderly bible salesman was taken into custody for his assault; yet shockingly by all accounts appears to not have been the murderer. Now, as the sun rises over Arkham, light is cast on the sinister leavings of the cruel night. These five unlikely companions find themselves faced with a mystery and a benefactor that can make it worth their while to solve it.

The quest to solve one murder has become much more than our investigators could ever have imagined. In the occultist squalor of the Hetfield estate, Father Grandfather stumbled upon a plot to conjure forth The Mother of Pus – a horrifying being beyond the realm of human comprehension. There, in that rotting house, a demon spawn struck; and was dealt with by the Father's own brand of fiery justice. Baffled by the inexplicable horrors they've born witness to, Sam, Hank, Deloras and Cyril return to Arkham tasked with no less than trying to foil the coming end times.

Part 8 :: Dénouement

Podcast cover
Read more

The theatre is a magical place. A place where fact becomes fiction, fantasy becomes flesh… the human experience is laid bare! Fitting then that Boston’s Monarch Theater should be the site of a horrendous ritual that also happens to be a stage play... a diabolical work called The King in Yellow.


If performed, it wouldn't just be the dénouement for our heroes, but perhaps the world as we know it.

Though the conspirators are gone - the madness unleashed lives on! The veil between our world and… another place are thin and the vile, theatrical ritual to summon The King in Yellow persists. Do our inexperienced investigators stand a chance in hell of repelling the walking, waking nightmare to come, or will they give in to the delirium and gibbering inflicted upon those who have truly seen the unseen?


One way or another, this episode is really gonna bring the house down.
