39: Chicken Roulette
Under the Library A Call of Cthulhu Podcast

On this Episode of Under the Library:

In the lobby of the theater, Jo is approached by a couple from Abeline, Texas. Betty Lou claims to be able to read minds and provides facts about both Jo and Cully, and Jimmy Dale seems to be a little slow. Betty Lou gives Jo a quarter from 1892 and leaves to get ice cream, saying that she will see Jo later.

Worried about Bello’s health, Franny calls Dr. Eveline Gardener. She speaks to a receptionist who warns that the doctor is busy but will come as soon as possible. Dr. Gardener has a penchant for picking up stray dogs and keeps a kennel behind her clinic. She also volunteers as a grave digger to stay motivated.

Boone has cleaned up in the bathroom and joins Rutherford in looking for Dick. Since they can’t find him, they instead head out to look for evidence of the wild dogs. As they wander around the theater, the sky lights up with a flash of fuchsia and green. This is probably the unique “Los Alamos Boreales” that is familiar to town residents.

Rutherford and Boone return to the front of the theater to look for Dick. In the distance they see two men shove a third man into a generic looking black car with an illegible license plate. Although they couldn’t identify the kidnapped man, Rutherford is convinced that the government has taken Dick.

The session ends as Dr. Gardener enters the theater.
