The Arkham Files is an actual play RPG podcast where a group of lifelong brothers and Donaven battle their way through the Lovecraftian horrors of Chaosium’s Call of Cthulhu tabletop role playing game. The show features a lot of laughs and with every episode we aim to hit that sweet spot of improv comedy, suspense, and excitement, but still feel like you’re just hanging out at the table with your old friends. We want this to feel like the game you always wanted to be a part of. To achieve that we do a ton of editing to keep the plot moving, add sound effects and even write original music to enhance the experience for our listeners. We are also constantly searching for ways to improve the entertainment and quality of the show.

That is where you come in. 
The Arkham Files is a continual work in progress. Work that we love and are always looking to improve, whether that be by better equipment, our own website, more content, more sound effects, custom artwork, official merchandise, or just more time to be able to devote to the show. By becoming one of our Patrons you are becoming a part of all of that. A part of the weird fusion of entertainment, art, and community that makes up this unique hobby that we all love. Along with the improvements your contributions provide, as part of our Patreon family you will have access to exclusive rewards offered only to our Patrons. Our goal is to always make you feel like you are getting the most entertainment value for your dollar and to make you love us so much that you bequeath all of your earthly goods to us. We don’t feel like any of this is unreasonable. 
So take a look at what we have to offer and thanks for listening. 
Now grab onto some dice and your sanity, let’s roll!
