Dead Light 205: Lights Out

Dead Light 205: Lights Out


It all comes down to this. As the investigators head towards their final confrontation with the villains of this night, both mundane and... otherwise, they quickly learn that sometimes there are no good answers. That when the lights go out, all that’s left is darkness. There are dark places in this world and, as the investigators discover, maybe inside of all of us
As the CoC Boys, fight, run, and scramble for their lives, they’re left furiously pondering: “can anything stop the Dead Light?” Tallahassee Turner believes he may have found a solution but will they have to delve into even darker places to finally snuff out the Dead Light?
One thing that all CoC Boys fear. Another is the unstoppable, murderous entity, bent on consuming every living thing in sight. Isolated, separated, and left with few options, the CoC Boys will have to dig deep if they hope to escape the good doctor’s cabin and see the sunrise beyond this night with no moon.
Shelter and a slight respite lead to more questions, suspicions, and ultimately, back out into the nightmare storm looking for help. Can there be any help for what stalks them?
The Arkham Boys are faced with an unexpected encounter on their way to New Jerusalem. Could this be part of some sinister plan, or is it just the wrong place at the wrong time?
This is it. Don't get scared now.
Tonight, the Arkham Boys are going over that fence and they’re not coming back until they find a dead body.
After witnessing the bloody effects of Corbitt’s warped mind on one of their own, the investigators regroup and decide that enough is enough.
With an address and a will, the investigators head over to confront the notorious rat-faced trunk bungler, and a desperate need for answers drives one of the Arkham Boys to a rash decision that may prove to be his last.
The net tightens in on Tomaszewski, the man with many names, as the investigators start reaping the results of their tenacious sleuthing, and Dr. Kantstandyobitz is forced to dig deep into some radical therapy when one of his allies gets caught with his pants down.
After a long night of being grilled by the police, and a near death experience, the group reconvenes back at Dr. Kanstandyourbitz' home to decide what to do next. A new recruit joins the crew as they seek to uncover the truth of what really happened to Dom Druncard over at Mr. Corbitt's house. A shocking discovery is made that will force them to question their sanity and push forward.
After a night of fumbled rolls and ridiculous mishaps, Dom Drüncard goes missing while Tallahassee and Co. find themselves being interrogated by the police. Is Mr. Corbitt really up to no good, or did the group just have too much non-alcoholic water to drink the night before?
After a few members of the group witness Mr. Corbitt drop what appeared to be a human hand from a canvas wrapped package, they decide to engage in some late night snooping around in hopes to uncover more information.
Pilot episode for The Arkham Files Case 101: Mr. Corbitt.

The first season did a great job of bringing the characters together, and that final episode was epic. Halfway through the first episode of Dead Light and already can't wait for the next one to get posted. Brilliant work my dudes.

Hi. What are your episode/content plans moving forward? Once per week/month etc? I can see 11 episodes. Am I missing some? My personal Cthulhu podcast Innsmouth gold standard is, Into The Darkness, but you guys have set off well. Keep up the good work. I thought Cantstanyerbits was an eye roller at first, but had me chuckling every time. The humour - roleplay - keeping - production balance works well.

Great listen. The production is put together really well. Love the intro and character voices. I’m not a gamer so it took a minute to understand the concept of the game and how it all worked. I was sucked in after the second or third episode. Very comical yet suspenseful.
