Charlie Tower seeks refuge from the horrors of the Great War in Berlin's most notorious nightclubs.

Content Warning: "The Black Stone" features a scene that's a bit more violent and horrible than what one usually hears in Dark Adventure Radio Theatre®. If you're sensitive to such things, this episode might not be for you.
We also wish to clarify that the Black Stone referred to in this show has nothing to do with Islam's Black Stone at the Kaaba in Mecca.
