The 'Unnatural Selections' series is our regular round up of notable Chaosium reviews worth a look.

Unnatural Selections #82: Graveyards of Arkham is a hit with viewers!​


Lucia, Becca and Josephine  on Graveyards of Arkham, ep 4

The 'Unnatural Selections' series is our regular round up of notable Chaosium reviews worth a look.

The early reactions were ecstatic, and now that we're four episodes in viewers continue to love our actual play series Graveyards of Arkham.

Here's a sampling of YouTube comments by viewers from episodes two, three and four!

  • "Great sequel to the Bookshops of Arkham series! Just top notch all around and once again enjoying the fantastic work of Mark Meer!" — @SilverViper219.
  • "Woot! I'll be a keeper for my first time in March. This is fun and informative for me." — @MiniatureMashup
  • "Fantastic stuff from Mark and the cast as always!! But also hats off to the ‘NPC’ this week [Paula Deming]! Great work!" — @phoenixiwaki
  • "Another excellent slow-burn episode - with some great Keeper NPCs and Guest NPC - the creepy tension gathering to a storm cloud as the mysteries unfold..." — @aztecjaguar6571
  • "I love the way you have organised and projected this game. So, as we all know, CoC is just a "game" but you bring this to life as a play - almost a slice of real, if creepy, life. The scene setting, the costumes, the background music and of course the multiple roles played by you are vivid and engrossing. Real talent, thank you for your efforts." - Tim
  • "I love the sets and the costumes...they really are a nice touch...but I could just relax, close my eyes and become immersed in this "actual play" due to the fantastic audio and voice talents. Bravo! I guess this is similar to what people were entertained with before television and movies." — @rpmfla
  • "The chemistry this cast has, man. There's something so perfect about the Keeper having to pop into the middle of a conversation between investigators to remind them of their leads, because both the players and the investigators are just spiralling into confusion ... Chef's kiss. It just makes me want to hunt down a group and start playing. Chaosium, thanks for a lovely series. (again)" — @yourspoookyaunt
  • "This was great. I loved how everyone really came alive. Archibald with his past. Vic with the great distressing with the twine. Betty being catty and mean. And Theodore dealing with death. This was an amazing chapter for all these characters. 100% loved it." — @TheFaulkned
  • "Tension deliciously builds. Becca enters at the cliffhanger." — @AetherflyerGames
  • "I'm not sure why but CoC actual plays are the only ones I can consistently consume. I just love them so much. I originally only intended to watch Andrew Leman's episode as I'm a lifetime member of the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society (Leman is one of the founders) but this ended up making me subscribe to Chaosium's channel and follow this particular series. Given the other comments I've seen, I'll probably check out Bookshops of Arkham, too." — @ryanahr2267
  • "So nice to see some effort; costumes and a set rather than a series of zoom boxes. I appreciate this has a production budget but it really helps the atmosphere and immersion. Top level stuff!" — @ashleyblake4899
  • "Goosebumps on top of goosebumps!" — @dee_w784
  • "The dinner was truly horrifying. The players really got rattled by the feast presented to them!" — @LightningRaven42
  • "I mean Bookshops of Arkham was already excellent, but this is absolutely next level!" — @niccolomereghetti4808
  • "All the cast is so good. Their performance in the dream scene is deeply moving." — @Himbros
  • "Becca Scott in 1920s attire looks she is a character straight from The Great Gatsby." — @aztecjaguar6571
  • "Not to be missed, a classic." — @FleshyInterloper
  • "A BIT of a cliffhanger? Talking about an understatement there ;) So when is the next one??" — @sanja2776
