Episode 14 – The Good Friends grope around in the dark

Jackson Elias

This week we talk about HP Lovecraft’s final story, The Haunter of the Dark. In particular, we look at it with a gamer’s eye (we’ll put it back when we’re done), breaking down various aspects and discussing how they can be used in games. There’s not much in the way of literary analysis — we leave that to the far better qualified HP Lovecraft Literary Podcast.

Well, we actually get to most of the gaming discussion next episode — we found so much to say that we’ve split the episode in two, and this part covers The Haunter of the Dark and the two related Robert Bloch stories, The Shambler from the Stars and The Shadow from the Steeple. All three stories are published in Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos, or you can find the two Bloch stories in Mysteries of the Worm.

You may notice an improvement in sound quality. This is the first recording with our shiny new Blue Yeti microphone, and it sounds much better to us.
