Answers are finally in their hands but burned and tattered; will they be able to make any sense out of them? Dr. Simeon, with the help of his friends, hopes to piece something together in time to pull this town back from the edge, but with a horrific discovery, it appears they may already be on the precipice.
Phantom fires, hidden passageways, and the smell of death await the investigators as they search for the answers to all of Mr. Corbitt's riddles. Will the hardness of Tallahassee's skin be enough to protect them from whatever horrors they might encounter in their dark descent?
A night passed in 5 luxurious rooms at Denny's brings an illuminating conversation with a new acquaintance. The group, especially Dom Druncard, gets some long-awaited answers, but is this new acquaintance telling them everything? Is he trustworthy?With an early-morning trip to the cemetery, the Arkham Boys might just find out sooner rather than later.
The dawn of an American Classic. Grand slams are served all around as some big discoveries are made and open the way for a clear path home. But sanities are fraying as a revelation in the red room changes everything they thought they knew about the situation in New Jerusalem.
The cracks in Tallahassee Turner’s sanity continue to widen as events further tax his fragile mind. Even though they have only just arrived in New Salem, Tallahassee’s actions cause an event that might set them down a path of no return. An event whose repercussions only the old ones may know. An event known as: “The Huggening”
It's been ten hours since the events in Orchard Run. Holed up at the backwoods cabin of a friend, the investigators from Arkham are battered, bruised, and exhausted. With the previous night still weighing heavily upon them, they are hoping to take a breath and regroup, but startling revelations will show that they may not have as much time as they originally thought. With unknown nightmares looming ahead in New Jerusalem and too well-known regrets from Orchard Run following behind, sometimes there can be no rest for men such as them.
The final thrilling conclusion - will our investigators complete the task set to them by their dying friend? Will their fear get the better of them and send them fleeing for their lives? Or will they fail in their task unleashing an evil set on sending humanity over The Edge of Darkness.
With a night to spend in a secluded cabin, and a ritual to perform the investigators have their work cut out for them. Will they band together and dispel this unknown evil, or the evil entity claim their souls?
The investigators find what they believe they are looking for, but with that discovery comes a strange new acquaintance, and further corroboration of a story none of them want to believe.With dusk bringing them to the Edge of Darkness, they have one final choice to make; face the evil, or hunker down and try to wait for dawn.
After a stunning revelation from their old friend, our strangers go from acquaintances to partners in the impossible task set before them.Racing the clock, these new friends set out to learn not only what they're up against, but where they can find the battlefield; all while battling their own doubts about a story that would have seemed unthinkable only 24 hours before.
A few strangers become unexpectedly bound together at the deathbed of a mutual friend. A terrifying burden is placed upon this group of acquaintances as their dying friend delivers an important message setting them on a harrowing path toward the Edge of Darkness.
As darkness falls, unexpected events unfold for a group of friends on Halloween night. A simple test of bravery quickly goes awry as Trick or Treat takes on a whole new meaning on Creeper Street.
Tricks, treats, and maybe even some ducks in this king-size special episode. Donaven takes the Keeper's seat for the first time ever in this one-shot play through of the brand new scenario "The Lightless Beacon." Can Cap'n Runch and his motley crew of investigators survive one deadly night of terror on Beacon Island? Strap in and hold on through the fowl madness as The Arkham Files goes Halloween.
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.

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.
