If you have a spare $124.50 (plus postage), you can pre-order the latest incredible prop replica and audio drama combo from the HP Lovecraft Historical Society.
Also available simply as a three-disc audio drama (with the usual selection of eye-catching paper props), The Brotherhood Of The Beast is an official dramatised adaptation of classic Call of Cthulhu RPG adventure, The Fungi From Yuggoth (by Keith Herber).
However, the Deluxe Edition (pictured above) is designed specifically with prop aficionados and gamers in mind.
As well as the nearly four-hour long drama, it includes:
"Fifty-four props from the story for you to pore over as the adventure unfolds.The current pre-order price tag for this bundle of Mythos madness is $124.50 (plus postage), but once the sets start shipping (around Halloween), the price of the deluxe edition will go up.
As characters in the show find clues, you'll find them too.
Full eight-column newspaper pages, large-format maps, letters, pages from unspeakable tomes and much more: you'll be immersed in the action with the kind of crazed verisimilitude only the HPLHS can offer.
All the props come bundled in Nate Ward's vintage Miskatonic University shoulder bag with an internal accordion file to keep them all straight.
An included Listener Guide lets you know when to pause the audio, protects you from spoilers, and dishes up a role-playing audio adventure you'll never forget."
The standard $34.50 three-CD edition of The Brotherhood Of The Beast comes with:
- an article from the Boston Globe about the child murders
- a very strange horoscope
- an urgent telegram from Budapest
- a brochure for a factory tour of a very strange facility
- a photograph of a very special Ancient Egyptian papyrus (for pre-order customers only)
