The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program :: Episode 1 :: Terror Comes A-Knocking

Posted by NerdyShow on September 28, 2015

COCFINAL 1400The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program is live tabletop roleplaying turned into a 1930s radio serial. What dark deeds unfold on the streets of Arkham?  And which unwitting souls – innocent or impure – will succumb to the maddening call… OF CTHULHU! This 8-part miniseries, entitled “The Black Birth”, is wrought with unknowable horror and black comedy.

Meet Sam; a cagey ex-Federal Agent, Deloris; the obsessive book dealer, Hank Jr.; a noble farmboy, Cyril; the smooth-talking jazz man, and Father Grandfather; a mad bible salesman. These five housemates of dubious moral fiber must band together to solve a murder most foul and risk their very sanity as their trail leads them into a realm of nightmares.

Join cast members from Nerdy Show‘s RPG favorites Dungeons & Doritos (Cap and Ruel), Ghostbusters: Resurrection (Doug), Pokéballs of Steelix (Brandon), and Paranoia XP (Kay) for a fan-requested 1-shot that became so much more. We’ve teamed up with Game Master, Luke Stram, and the composers of Dungeons & Doritos’ score, Ryan and Mike McQuinn, to create a terrifying and hilarious RPG series like no other!
