On this episode of Under the Library:
In the house in the Straits, Eddy hears the book from the bloody bag call to him. When he opens the book his stomach gurgles for the first time in weeks. As he and Buddy leave the house, they rejoin Colette who shares a story of a family who disappeared from the Straits.
At Richard’s house, Sister B opens the front door to admit two privates (probably from the Facility). However, she sees them in Russian military garb and hears them speak in her native tongue. Sister B’s paranoia leads her to an altercation with the privates before she gathers her biological samples and leaves the house.
Sam leaves the farm, heading into town to run some errands. After visiting Jo at the hospital, he stops into a bar and attempts to question the bartender about disappearances in the Straits. Sam then stops by the convent, but Sister B is out. He ends up at another bar, this time in the Straits, but finds the bartender unhelpful.
Finally, back at the hotel, Eddy naps while Buddy examines the strange journal. In the other room, Colette forces herself to remember things her brain tries to protect her from – sketching everything she can recall.
Under the Library, an actual-play Call of Cthulhu podcast, where cosmic horror is steeped in mystery and slathered with self-deprecating humor. Our main storyline, a sandbox created by our Keeper (Michael), is set in (a fictitious) 1942 New Mexico and follows the misadventures of Collette (Emily), Eddy (Scott), Sam (Rick), Sister B (Wayne), and Buddy (Arthur). We focus on narrative, improv, and character building. We may stick our heads in front of a train because that’s what our character would do, and when we look under the bed even the Keeper may not know what we’ll find. We’re crafting a story, creating flawed characters, suspenseful events, and fulfilling revelations. Call of Cthulhu is a horror TTRPG; characters die horribly graphic deaths. It’s for mature audiences, but played by immature people.
